A coalition of about 100 African-American pastors are scheduled to meet with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday and are reportedly going to announce their support for the real estate mogul's presidential bid.
The New York Times reports that Trump's campaign announced this week that the Republican frontrunner will meet with the group of black pastors at 1 p.m. Monday at the Trump Tower in Manhattan.
According to the Times, the meeting will precede an announcement from the pastors that they will be endorsing Trump for president. The event will be televised on the Now Network's Roku channel, mobile app and website. more >>
Just when it seemed the highly anticipated "God's Not Dead 2" cast couldn't get any bigger, GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee revealed that he has a cameo appearance in the star-studded film.
"It was a real honor and thrill to film a scene for the movie," Huckabee told The Christian Post. "A few years ago, such a plot would seem like fiction, but in light of how Christianity is being criminalized in America, this film depicts life in America for those of faith."
Although Huckabee is on the campaign trail seeking the Republican nomination for president, Pure Flix Entertainment announced this week that the former Arkansas governor is going to be on the big screen in "God's Not Dead 2," which is set to release on April 1, 2016. more >>
Hillary Clinton might be the clear frontrunner for the Democrat Party's nomination, but according to a new poll at least six Republicans could beat her in next year's general election.
A Fox News poll released Sunday, which was conducted a week after the Nov. 13 Paris terror attacks, shows Florida Sen. Marco Rubio fairing best against the former secretary of state and Democrat frontrunner.
Rubio, who tops Clinton 50 to 42 points, told voters in Iowa Monday that if elected president, he would show the world how Islamic State militants "cry like babies" after they're captured. more >>
Based on the election calendar, white evangelical Christians are going to receive ample attention early in the 2016 Republican primary.
Using exit poll data from the 2012 and 2008 GOP primaries, as well as data from the Census Bureau and the Public Religion Research Institute's American Values Atlas to help estimate numbers for states with no exit polls, we found that about two-thirds (64%) of the total delegates in states with contests on or before March 8 will come from states with electorates that may be at least 50% white evangelical.
Table 1 lays out delegate data based on white evangelical participation and the calendar. Of the nearly 2,500 Republican delegates, just over 1,000 will come from the states and territories that will hold presidential preference polls up through March 8, 2016. Of those, close to 700 are slated to represent states that could have electorates with majorities of white born-again Christian voters, who are generally more conservative than other Republicans and less inclined to support establishment-oriented candidates. more >>
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton asserted on Thursday that Muslims are "peaceful and tolerant people" and have "nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."
In a speech given at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, the former Secretary of State and First Lady discussed how she feels the United States should be doing more to combat the Islamic State terrorist organization. She also criticized Republicans who often claim "radical Islamic terrorism" is America's biggest threat.
"The bottom line is that we are in a contest of ideas against an ideology of hate, and we have to win. Let's be clear, though. Islam is not our adversary," Clinton argued. "Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism. The obsession in some quarters with a clash of civilization or repeating the specific words, 'radical Islamic terrorism' isn't just a distraction." more >>
Real estate mogul and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump raised concerns Wednesday about the U.S. accepting Christian refugees from Syria, charging that their faith could be hard to prove.
"I don't know if you can prove that they're Christian," said Trump at a press conference in Worcester, Massachusetts, according to CNN.
"You have to prove it. How are they proving it?" Trump asked. "I have a real concern that the people who are coming into this country are coming in, some for very bad purposes." more >>
