The high evangelical turnout in the Iowa caucuses Monday is proof that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is 'awakening' and 'energizing' Christian conservative voters who did not turn out in the 2012 election, leading conservative activist Tony Perkins said Wednesday.
As 64 percent of Iowa's Republican caucus goers were evangelicals, the staunch conservative Texas senator won the caucus with just over 27 percent of the vote and three-plus-percentage-point victory over GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
Perkins, who endorsed Cruz last week and was later announced the chair of the Pro-Lifers for Cruz coalition, told The Christian Post that the results in Iowa are an indicator that Cruz has what it takes to "go the distance," thanks to the support that he will receive from evangelical voters who stayed away from the polls in 2008 and 2012 because they weren't inspired enough by the GOP nominees to go place their votes. more >>
An anti-sexual exploitation group recently stated that "Super Bowl Culture" helps to enable sex trafficking, pointing to the recent detaining of a Denver Broncos player for his connection to a prostitution sting.
Days before Super Bowl 50, Broncos rookie safety Ryan Murphy was sent back home after the San Jose police brought him in for questioning in connection to a prostitution sting.
Dawn Hawkins, executive director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, stated Wednesday that the incident was indicative of a broader trend in commercial sex during the Super Bowl. more >>
President Barack Obama spoke about the nature of fear and Christ's power over death before a large annual faith-based gathering in Washington, DC.
At the National Prayer Breakfast held Thursday morning in the Nation's Capital, President Obama gave a speech based off of 2nd Timothy 1:7, which reads "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
"Fear does funny things. Fear can lead us to lash out against those who are different or lead us to try to get some 'sinister other' under control," said Obama. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress has released a video that purports to show overlooked evidence that reveals how a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic used accounting gimmicks to disguise its illegal profiting from the sell of aborted baby parts to researchers.
The Tuesday release of CMP's latest video comes two days before CMP's indicted founder, David Daleiden, will present himself in Harris County court to address felony and misdemeanor charges that came as a result of a grand jury investigation into a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic's fetal tissue reimbursement practices.
Although CMP and pro-life supporters believe that CMP's fifth video released last year shows a Houston Planned Parenthood official explaining how the clinic skirts around state and federal fetal tissue reimbursement laws, it was Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, who were indicted with felony charges last month for tampering with governmental records, while officials from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast were cleared of criminal wrongdoing. more >>
The nation's most outspoken and flamboyant animal rights group has announced that it is creating a new division to combat what it describe as "animal-on-animal" violence.
Adorned with lettuce bras, spokeswomen for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals recently told the press that they need to expand their agenda.
"We recently sat down for our monthly 'Talk and Tofurkey' gathering to discuss how we could better help serve the cause of animal rights," spoke one PETA woman as male reporters kept wondering how long the romaine was going to stay in place. more >>
A group of 20 political scientists who graduated from Wheaton College are encouraging their alma mater to reinstate tenured political professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins, who was suspended and could soon be fired for asserting that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
As Hawkins prepares for her Feb. 11 termination hearing before the evangelical institution's Faculty Personnel Committee, a number of prominent voices within the Wheaton community have called on the college's administration to drop its termination effort.
While Wheaton maintains that Hawkins appears to be in violation of the school's statement of faith, 20 Wheaton grads who are now political science professors at various higher education institutions sent a letter on Wednesday to Wheaton President Philip Ryken and the college's board of trustees citing concerns that the school has violated Hawkins' rights to due process by placing her on administrative leave. more >>
