As the Syrian civil war and the forces of President Bashar Al-Assad continue to take the lives of hundreds of thousands of Syrian mothers and fathers, charities and orphanages in Turkey are doing the best they can to provide children whose parents have been killed with new lives and listening ears for the horror stories those children have to tell.
As a telling example of the brutality displayed by government soldiers during the country's four-year civil conflict, the director of one Turkish charity explained in an interview with the Daily Mail that his organization is providing housing to one family of children whom Syrian government soldiers forced to witness their own father being doused in gasoline and burned alive.
Abdul Al Kader is the director of the Khatayn charity in the Turkish town of Reyhanli, an organization that looks after 70 Syrian children in Reyhanli, rents homes for family groups, and gives $50 a week to the guardians of 30,000 orphans inside Syria. more >>
Televangelist Jim Bakker has warned viewers of his program "The Jim Bakker Show," that they'll be forced to eat human flesh during the fast-approaching End Times unless they buy his food buckets.
"The Bible says they're going to eat their arms, the Bible says they're going to eat their babies, then it says they're going to eat their children. That's what people do when they get hungry," said Bakker.
"When you're huddled in a corner with your grandbaby and they're screaming and crying and there's no food — I don't want that blood on my hands." more >>
Former Hewlett Packard CEO and Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina received an ovation during Thursday night's GOP presidential debate after she strongly denounced Planned Parenthood and implied that the Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to force a presidential veto to spending legislation that wouldn't fund the abortion giant.
As the topic of whether or not Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to defund Planned Parenthood was raised at the CNN debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ohio Gov. John Kasich argued that it is pointless to attempt defunding Planned Parenthood through the continuing resolution, if President Barack Obama is just going to veto such legislation.
With the GOP in control of both the House and Senate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Fiorina responded to Kasich's veto argument stating that conservatives should not back down from their opposition to Planned Parenthood's $500 million in annual federal funding just because Obama is sure to veto. more >>
Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and other second-tier Republican presidential candidates shared differing views Thursday night on whether Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and other public officials have the right to exercise their religious belief in traditional marriage while serving public office after the Supreme Court has nationalized same-sex marriage.
During CNN's first Republican presidential debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, which featured the four lowest polling GOP presidential nominees, Jindal was first asked to give his opinion on the 14-year-old Muslim student in Texas who was wrongly arrested for bringing a clock to school and how America should handle the fine line between keeping America safe from radical Islam and not discriminating against Arab-Americans.
After Jindal gave a response bashing radical Islam that challenged Muslim leaders to stand up against extremism, he added that the biggest discrimination problem that America should be focusing on is the discrimination against Christians who publicly stand by their religious belief in natural marriage. Jindal referenced Davis, a Christian Kentucky county clerk who was jailed last week for refusing to issue marriage licenses due to her objection to having her name and title authorizing same-sex marriage certificates. more >>
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Tuesday has found that the majority of Americans believe that Kentucky clerk Kim Davis should be required by law to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and said that equality under the law trumps a person's religious beliefs when the two come in conflict.
Davis, who was jailed for six days for being in contempt of federal court after refusing to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples, will be honored by conservative groups with the Family Research Council's
"Cost of Discipleship Award" for her stance. more >>
The Family Research Council will honor Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed six days for being in contempt of federal court after refusing to issue marriage licenses due to her biblical opposition to same-sex marriage, as the recipient of this year's "Cost of Discipleship Award" later this month.
FRC, a social conservative activist group, announced Monday that the 49-year-old Rowan County clerk will be honored with the award at the organization's 10th annual Values Voter Summit on Sept. 25 in Washington, D.C.
Davis follows in the footsteps of last year's award winner, Sudanese mother Mariam Ibraheem, who was sentenced to death on charges of apostasy for marrying a Christian man, and was forced to give birth while her legs were chained in a Khartoum prison. more >>
