Sometimes the mask comes off, and people are just honest about what they really think. Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, had one of those moments recently when she talked about "the three G's," comments that are now circulating around the internet.
During the Democratic National Convention, Judy Woodruff was interviewing the former Speaker of the House for the PBS Newshour (7/26/16), and Pelosi made some remarks about "non-college-educated white males" who vote Republican.
According to Pelosi they "voted against their own economic interests" — I disagree with her. I think the opposite is true. The policies of the Democratic Party have been disastrous for our recovery. more >>
A lesbian pastor of the United Methodist Church was put on involuntary leave for violating the denomination's ban on having "self-avowed" homosexual clergy.
The Reverend Cynthia Meyer of Edgerton United Methodist Church in Kansas agreed earlier this week to the punishment in order to avoid a church trial.
According to the UMC Great Plains Annual Conference, the regional body which Meyer was part of, the involuntary leave is part of a resolution process. more >>
An 80-year old Church of England clergyman, the former archdeacon of Auckland, was found guilty by a Durham crown court of sex offenses against two young men, prompting the CofE to offer its "unreserved apology" amid accusations of a mass cover-up.
The Guardian reported on Thursday that George Granville Gibson was convicted by the crown court of two counts of indecent assault against two men, aged 18 and 26, back when the crimes were committed in the 1970s and '80s.
Gibson was cleared of sodomy and four other indecent assault charges. He admitted before court that he has homosexual urges, but said that he was only attracted to adult men, not young boys. more >>
On November 17, 1957 at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Martin Luther King delivered a message for the ages when he said: "There is something within each of us that causes us to cry out with Goethe, 'There is enough stuff in me to make both a gentleman and a rogue.' There is something within each of us that causes us to cry out with the Apostle Paul, 'I see and approve the better things of life, but the evil things I do.'"
I was drawn to reading King's speech at the conclusion of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, located just two miles away from convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell's infamous death factory — where a grand jury investigation found that Gosnell "regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy — and then murdered these babies by severing their spinal cords with scissors." The investigation found that he also "overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels — and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths."
At one point, Gosnell justified his actions, saying it was his way of giving back to his community, similar to how pro-choice proponents claim that abortion is about women's rights — proving true Dr. King's words — that there is plenty in each of us to make both gentlemen and rogues. more >>
Pro-abortion forces should be careful what they wish for, especially when it comes to Christian hospitals.
A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that the percentage of Americans who "think" that religion plays a role in solving important social problems "has fallen significantly" in the past fifteen years.
In 2001, 75 percent of those polled said that religious institutions played such a role in our society. By 2016, the percentage had dropped to 58 percent. more >>
A group of about 40 theologically conservative United Methodist Church clergy and theologians have formed an organization known as the Wesleyan Covenant Association.
The creation of the WCA was announced late last month and its first gathering is scheduled to be held in Chicago this October.
"In these times of great uncertainty about the future of the United Methodist Church, the Wesleyan Covenant Association stands together as an alliance to advance vibrant, scriptural Christianity within Methodism," stated an entry on the WCA's website. more >>
