Sojourners founder Jim Wallis and dozens of other Christian leaders are condemning Donald Trump's use of public fear and resentment throughout the 2016 election as being "a moral and theological crisis" that "threatens the well being" of the American society.
More than 50 prominent Christians "from across the political spectrum," but mostly from the Christian left, have signed onto a declaration titled "Called to Resist Bigotry — A Statement of Faithful Obedience" that calls on Christians to resist rallying around "demagogic" political candidates who rely on exploiting anger and "hatred" to gain support.
"At significant times in history, however, Christians from across the political spectrum come together around political realities that threaten the fundamental integrity of Christian faith and the well-being of society itself," the declaration explained. "Sometimes what is called politics raises moral crises, in which our faith is literally at stake in the way we respond." more >>

Holmes, a historian of political movements and a distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation, was the featured speaker at a Heritage Foundation discussion in Washington, D.C. that focused on his recently released book The Closing of the Liberal Mind: How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left.
Although the definition of liberalism is to permit the free flow of ideas and protect freedom of expression, Holmes asserts that liberals today have "turned the cause of equality into a weapon that could be used against freedom of speech." more >>

The American Family Association's boycott surpassed 1 million supporters Thursday evening as people continue to sign their names to the campaign agreeing to stop shopping at Target until the company's bathroom policy is reversed.

After being fired by ESPN last week for publishing his opinion in support of North Carolina's transgender law, retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling spoke out against his former employer Wednesday, saying the network employs some of the "biggest racists" in sports commentating.
Schilling, a three-time World Series winner who was a color baseball commentator for the Disney-owned sports network, lost his job last Wednesday over a comment he posted in reply to an anti-transgender Facebook meme.
Schilling's comment stated: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't care what they are, who they sleep with, men's room was designed for the penis, women's not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently, Pathetic!" more >>
