GOP presidential candidate and ordained Baptist minister Mike Huckabee has defended the government of Paraguay's decision not to perform a late-term abortion on an 11-year-old girl who was repeatedly raped by her stepfather. Huckabee described the case as a "terrible tragedy," but argued that an abortion would not solve the problem.
"Let nobody be misled, a 10-year-old girl being raped is horrible. But does it solve the problem by taking the life of an innocent child — that's really the issue," Huckabee said in an interview with CNN on Sunday.
The case in question concerns an 11-year-old girl who was allegedly repeatedly raped by her stepfather when she was 10 (she turned 11 in May). The traditionally Roman Catholic South American country ruled that she would not be granted the late-term abortion her mother was seeking, with Health Minister Antonio Barrios declaring in May that "the pregnancy will not be interrupted." more >>
Off the top of your head, who can you say ignites crusades in America where 90 percent of the attendees are under 18 and have never been saved by Jesus Christ?
I struggled to answer this question too when it was posed to me recently by a 24-year-old Hispanic pastor named Brian Barcelona. Barcelona knew the answer. Actually, Brian Barcelona is the answer.

At 96, world renowned evangelist Billy Graham continues to share the Gospel by answering people's questions about Jesus Christ through his evangelistic association's "My Answer" initiative.
A person who goes by the name L.D. wrote to the Billy Graham Evangelic Association to ask the evangelist about the deity of Jesus Christ and what sets Him apart from say Buddha or Muhammad.
The reader asked: "I know Christians believe Jesus was divine, but what exactly do you mean by that? Most of the religions I've studied have their holy men and women, but what makes Jesus any different from them? — L.D." more >>
Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson on Sunday criticized the Black Lives Matter movement, saying they are politicizing issues and using disruptive methods while overlooking some critical issues like homicide by young black males.
"I would like them to start paying attention to the carnage rather than making it a political issue," Carson, the only African-American presidential candidate in the 2016 field, told told Fox News.
"The most common cause of death for young black males in cities is homicide," added Carson, a retired neurosurgeon. more >>
The big three media networks, ABC, NBC and CBS, have spent a minuscule amount of time in their broadcasts reporting on the six undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood staff discussing ways in which they can profit off the harvesting and sell of aborted babies' body parts.
According to the Media Research Center, the three networks combind only spent 1 minute and 13 seconds of airtime playing the audio from Center for Medical Progress' three-year investigation into the practices of the nation's largest abortion provider.
This means that since the release of the first video in July, "ABC, NBC and CBS had 243 hours and 30 minutes [of airtime to fill for their] morning and evening news shows," but allocated only 0.16 percent of that time airing audio and video from the undercover investigative footage, according to the Media Research Center. more >>
A Kentucky pastor was stripped of his right to minister to youth while using the Bible at a Juvenile Detention Center in Bowling Green earlier this year after he refused to sign a new policy that would prohibit him from referring to homosexuality as sinful.
The pastor, David Wells of Pleasant View Baptist Church in McQuady, has helped sexually abused youth at Warren County Regional Juvenile Detention Center for 12 years, and is being represented by the Liberty Council, a Christian law firm that's filing a lawsuit against the state on his behalf for refusing to reinstate him.
"They have not accommodated him and they're clearly trying to restrict a particular viewpoint," said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Council to The Christian Post on Thursday." more >>
