Evangelist and Samaritan's Purse President Franklin Graham is speaking out against the violence perpetrated by some of the protesters in Charlotte this week, and has called for prayer in the midst of the unfolding chaos.
Writing on his Facebook page Thursday, Graham said, "Another young man was shot and killed by someone in the hostile crowd. Looting, vandalism, random violence, mayhem prevailed. ... all under the guise of a demonstration."
Protester Justin Carr was shot during Wednesday night's protests, and according to CNN, "because the crowd was too thick for paramedics to access the scene, he had to be evacuated by a SWAT armored personnel carrier." more >>

U.S. Secretary of Education John King is receiving criticism for his recent statements claiming that children who are homeschooled have fewer options than those enrolled in schools.
At a recent breakfast event sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Secretary King told reporters that he had mixed feelings about homeschooling children.

Praying for God to soften the hearts of atheist friends is the most important thing Christian can do for non-believers, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham, who also encourages believers to be a "witness to Jesus' peace and joy."
In a question-and-answer column published Monday on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, Graham was asked what Christians can do to encourage their atheist friends to seek salvation in Jesus Christ.
"My best friend and I enjoy each other's company, but I'm a Christian and he says he's an atheist. I've tried to argue with him, but he just laughs and says I ought to grow up and forget about God. How can I win him over?" the person asked. more >>
Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission President Russell Moore told The Christian Post in an interview that President Barack Obama is "very receptive" to ideas on prison reform that are being advanced by a coalition of conservative and liberal activists.
The leading ethicist for the Southern Baptist Convention attended a meeting last Thursday with President Obama, along with about a dozen others including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, and leaders from both conservative and liberal groups.
