Answers in Genesis President/CEO Ken Ham is siding with the atheists for once, he says.
Disturbed by a recent cover story investigating the need to believe in a literal Adam and Eve, Ham, who endorses a literal view of Genesis, criticized several Christian theologians for rejecting both a literal interpretation of the first couple and existence of a young Earth.
The story, entitled “The Search for the Historical Adam” featured on the June issue of the Christianity Today magazine, quoted a number of Christian scholars who held an evolutionary and allegorical belief of Genesis that accorded with scientific evidence. more >>
Mitt Romney will give the campaign trail another go. He posted on his Facebook page that he will announce his candidacy for Republican presidential nominee on Thursday.
The former Massachusetts governor will join a GOP field that is crowded with evangelical contenders, including former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain, who have both officially declared their candidacy.
Still sitting on the fence, however, are two other potential evangelical GOP presidential candidates with high intensity enthusiasm among their fan base – former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). more >>

"Israel has no better friend than America, and America has no better friend than Israel." Benjamin Netanyahu
In a speech before a joint session of Congress this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu affirmed what so many of us know to be true: Israel is the only true friend America has in the Middle East, and we should not take this friendship for granted. Yet this is exactly what it appears President Obama may be doing. After suggesting that renewed peace talks should begin with a return to the 1967 borders, Obama has spent the week attempting to clarify his words and mollify America's Jewish population.
Caveats about "land swaps" notwithstanding, it's unclear why the President would issue a statement so certain to rouse unease among our Jewish allies. If it was an ill-considered attempt at Arab appeasement, the President needs to get real. Aside from denying the legitimacy of the Jewish state and joining the Palestinians in their efforts to push Israel into the Mediterranean Sea, there can be no compromise with anti-Jewish forces in the Middle East. They are not interested in peace, and will never accept a two-state solution. This has been their position for more than sixty years. more >>
Justin Bieber was recently spotted with a tattoo of Jesus’ name in Hebrew under his arm. But can the 17-year-old and proud Christian star get a tattoo? Does that go against Bieber's faith? What about Leviticus 19:28 or 1 Corinthians 6:19-20?
One pastor thinks Bieber’s tattoo is not only OK but also a powerful way of telling the world “I follow Jesus.”
During Bieber’s recent vacation with girlfriend Selena Gomez in Hawaii, pictures of the young couple surfaced on the Web, revealing Bieber’s newest tattoo of a Hebrew inscription reading “Yeshua,” which means Jesus, vertically inked on the upper portion of his left ribcage. more >>
