"Duck Dynasty" star and outspoken Christian Willie Robertson said he believes Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal should run for president in 2016.
"He's a great man. He's a Godly man," said Robertson in an interview with Fox Talk Radio's "Kilmeade and Friends" Monday. "He's honest, and so I'd like to see if he makes a run at it. And, you know, if so, we'll definitely be trying to help him out."
Robertson, who made a name for himself as a Christian reality TV star on the A&E series "Duck Dynasty," considers Jindal a good friend and recognized him for being the first Indian-American governor in the U.S. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham accused atheist groups of "showing their intolerance for anything — or anyone" Christian, after the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to a high school in Georgia claiming that the school's decision to invite a Creationist speaker to talk to students is "unconstitutional."
"Christians are not second-class citizens barred from participating in society or from speaking in the public sphere. In no way is having a Christian give a lecture on critical thinking a violation of the First Amendment. If FFRF wants to claim that Christians can't speak on critical thinking, then neither can they," Ham argued in a blog post.
Troup County Comprehensive High School in LaGrange invited in late March Eric Hovind, the president of the Florida-based ministry Creation Today, to a debate class. According to Christian News Network, Hovind has said that he did not talk about his faith or creation during the class, but participated in a general discussion on critical thinking. more >>
The Republican-dominated U.S. House of Representatives voted 242-184 Wednesday to pass a bill that will ban most late term abortions after 20 weeks gestation, fulfilling a campaign promise to the pro-life movement.
Lawmakers held the vote for H.R. 36, the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" on the second anniversary of the conviction of late-term Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The bill would ban abortions after five months of pregnancy, with exceptions for rape and incest if the woman receives counseling 48 hours prior to having an abortion.
Introduced by Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., in January, members of the House were expected to vote on the bill on Jan. 22, which was the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. more >>
Legislators in Texas are considering bills that would seek to enforce a ban on gay marriage even if the U.S. Supreme Court decides to declare such bans unconstitutional.
Last month, the highest court in the land heard oral arguments in an appeal to determine whether or not state-level bans on gay marriage were constitutional.
Texas representatives have introduced measures, including House Bill 4105, which would bar government funds from being used to support gay marriage. more >>
Contrary to recent reports based on studies that emphasize the growth of non-religious people in the United States and the decline of church attendance, Christianity in America is not dying, according to a new survey that examines the nuances and complexities of how people self-identify with faith by Waco,Texas-based Baylor University.
Scholars from Baylor University's Institute of Religion said during a recent conference that reports highlighting the departure of millenials from the organized religion of their parents are being greatly exaggerated.
"There's a story some people want to report — that religion is on life support — but it's just not true," said Byron Johnson, professor of the social sciences at Baylor and founding director of the Institute for Studies of Religion. more >>
Princess Modupe Ozolua, an entrepreneur and philanthropist from the royal family of the Benin Kingdom in Edo State, Nigeria, has called on the international community to get involved in a project seeking to help the victims of Boko Haram rebuild their lives.
Ozolua said that campaigns such as BringBackOurGirls have been good for raising awareness on the issue, but argued that the thousands of women and children affected by Boko Haram also need help, not just the kidnapped Chibok girls.
"What is most important for people to understand is that this is a very serious issue. These are men, women and children. When we go to the camps, and see everyone crying, we think 'Oh God, this is such a mess.' But the truth is it can happen to anybody," Ozolua told The Christian Post in a phone interview on Tuesday. more >>
