Jeb Bush said that supporting abortion for rape-conceived babies puts him in a "sweet spot" as a candidate while Chris Christie called it an "act of self defense." Marco Rubio disagreed, arguing it's more important to be right on the issue than win an election.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush argued his support for abortions in the cases of rape and incest would help him win the presidential after he asked about his recent criticism of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's pro-life stance during Saturday's Republican presidential debate on ABC.
Former Fla. Gov. Bush, who currently averages fifth place in national GOP nomination polls, told CNN in an interview Friday that Rubio's belief that abortion should not be permitted in the cases of rape and incest would be a "tough sell" to pro-life mothers whose daughters had been raped. more >>
While announcing the lineup for Saturday's Republican presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire, ABC News excluded Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina despite calls from her fellow GOP candidates to feature her.
Two ABC News insiders and a Republican National Committee source told CNN on Friday that there's no plan to send Fiorina a last-minute invitation to the Saturday's debate, which takes place three days before the New Hampshire primary.
Businessman Donald Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have qualified for the debate, which will not have an "undercard" event. more >>
Joni Eareckson Tada, an evangelical Christian author and international advocate for people with disabilities, on Friday endorsed Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, praising his commitment to "a compassionate social conservatism."
"American society, as with any nation, is judged on how it treats its weakest members, including the elderly, people with disabilities, and the unborn. It is why I personally support Senator Marco Rubio," Tada, founder of the global ministry Joni and Friends, said in a statement, World magazine reports.
"On all issues relating to sanctity of life, Senator Rubio is solidly committed to a compassionate social conservatism which lifts up the needy," added Tada, who has been a quadriplegic for close to 50 years. "I strongly urge you to join me in supporting his campaign for U.S. president." more >>
Voting for Marco Rubio over Ted Cruz for president would not require evangelicals to compromise their Christian beliefs and values, the Rubio campaign's director of faith outreach, Eric Teetsel, asserted Thursday.
As the race for the Republican nomination is looking like it could come down to three candidates — Florida Sen. Rubio, Texas Sen. Cruz and billionaire Donald Trump — following Monday night's Iowa Caucuses, media narrative is starting to paint Rubio as the candidate of choice for the Republican "establishment."
Cruz supporters, such as Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, have added to the narrative by stating that much of Rubio's support in Iowa, where he came in third with 23 percent of the vote, came seemingly from "self-described" moderates. more >>
How any female in America could support Donald Trump, the American version of former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, is beyond me.
Call me old school, but I have a real problem electing a man to public office who The Washington Post reported has a "Twitter feed and history of public comments" describing women as a "dog," "fat" and "disgusting." Even still, some conservatives give him a pass.
I know. We're electing a president, not a pastor. Or at least that's what we hear from certain evangelical leaders who think it's okay to endorse a "Biblically-illiterate strip club owner" who trades his wives in for newer models, as Freedom Outpost described in their January 27 column. more >>
The current Pew Research Faith Poll reveals a "massive 19 point increase among those saying Hillary Clinton is 'not too' or 'not at all' religious." Are her statements regarding her religion hollow and hypocritical?
Recently, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said the following while campaigning: "I'm a Christian and a Methodist." She then said, her "study of the Bible led me to believe the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself."
Students of the Bible will obviously recognize her paraphrasing Luke 10:29-37. Since this is the core tenet of her belief system, let's see if she's practicing what she preaches when it comes to about-to-be born babies. more >>
