Ron Sider, professor emeritus at Palmer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania and founder of Evangelicals for Social Action, charged Thursday that white Evangelicals should get behind the Black Lives Matter movement because it is a pro-life issue.
Sider, who Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, introduced at the Evangelicals for Life conference in Washington D.C. as "a model of Christian conviction and courage," criticized parts of the pro-life movement for what he sees as a "fundamental inconsistency" in how life-threating social causes beyond abortion, like racism and poverty, are treated.

I'm happy my friends and honored to be a part of this gathering," Sider noted in his delicately balanced comments. more >>

Fiorina: I think our nation is at a pivotal point. Too many people fear that we are losing the sense of limitless possibility that has always defined this nation. Margaret Thatcher — a woman I greatly admire — once said that she was not content to manage the decline of a great nation. Neither am I. I am prepared to lead the resurgence of a great nation. more >>
