Jim Bob Duggar, a former Arkansas state representative and reality television personality on the show "19 Kids and Counting," argued that an inactive voting bloc would have won Mitt Romney the presidency last year, and will win Ken Cuccinelli the Virginia's gubernatorial race in November.
"There's a sleeping giant which is the Christian Conservatives…I think they'll win this thing," Duggar told The Christian Post in a Thursday interview. An Arkansas native, Duggar, his wife, and his 19 children have been campaigning for three Republican candidates in Virginia since Monday: Ken Cuccinelli for governor, E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor, and Mark Obenshain for attorney general.
Duggar said the goal of his 21-person family trip to the East Coast is to "motivate the christian conservatives to get out to vote." He estimated that 400 people attended the rally at Liberty University, and his son Josh pegged the total number at over 1,000 for four days. The Duggar patriarch argued that President Barack Obama won his re-election in 2012 due to this crucial segment of the electorate "getting distracted and not voting like they should." more >>

I Can't Get No Satisfaction
God, the Papa, blessed me by allowing me to see that the idol called success over-promises and under delivers. Not only does the idol called success under-deliver, idolatry is also disfigures our hearts.
At the age of 25, I was a team captain on the Indianapolis Colts. I had money, a beautiful wife, and things I didn't even know I was allowed to even dream about. I was successful according to America. Yet success couldn't fix what I needed fixed most, my heart. more >>
WASHINGTON – An African American pastor blamed the Civil Rights Movement for the weakened state of the black family and agreed with Christian social science experts that a re-emphasis on family will empower the black population.
Due to the Civil Rights Movement, African Americans "went in one election cycle from being 95% Republican to 70 to 80 percent Democrat – from that point, blacks began to change their mentality from the provision of God and the church to the provision of government," Bishop Wellington Boone, a church leader and bestselling author, said. He spoke at the conservative Heritage Foundation on Thursday as part of the Coalition of African American Pastors' Leadership Conference.
After describing a social system where pastors encouraged men to provide for their families and churches stepped in to help the poor, Boone blamed the Civil Rights Movement for separating the family from the church and weakening the commitment of black men and women to each other. "The Civil Rights Movement led those same people from the steps of the altars to the steps of the Federal Government," he declared. more >>
If two parents are better than one, why not have three or four or even more? As ridiculous as that sounds, that is what's happening in California now days.
Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into California law earlier this month, paving the way for judges to craft and deliver additional parents for any child that comes before them. According to the bill's sponsor, Democratic State Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, this measure was needed to keep up with the changes in the modern California family.
Put another way, altering marriage to mean something other than one man and one woman, coupled with the on-going sexual revolution, triggers unique ways of looking at parenthood. more >>
WASHINGTON – Legal and military experts at the social conservative Values Voter Summit, sponsored by the Family Research Council, proclaimed that religious freedom faces dire threats in today's U.S. military, and called on Christians to denounce the Obama administration and the alleged secularization of American society.
"This is Chicago-style thuggery at its worst, manifesting itself through the military," Ken Klukowski, director for FRC's Center for Religious Liberty, told The Christian Post in an interview on Saturday. "It's almost as if President Obama's Organizing for America people are advising the Obama-Hagel Pentagon on how you bully and intimidate Christians and people of faith to stay quiet when you're trampling on their religious liberty rights," Klukowski declared.
The FRC religious liberty director referred to a report, "A Clear and Present Danger: The Threat to Religious Liberty in the Military," which outlines 1200 instances of infringements of religious liberty in the U.S. military in the last ten years. more >>
