Contracted curators who operate Facebook's influential "trending news" section say they regularly censor some conservative news organizations from being included in the section.
Facebook launched its trending news section in 2014, allowing its millions of Facebook users to easily scroll through some of the day's hottest news stories by simply looking at the upper left-hand corner of their Facebook feed.
As over 600 million people see a news story on Facebook every week, the trending news section has become one of the most prominent vehicles for news consumption today. more >>
Russell Moore says the belief that the United States is a Christian nation in the respect of being a divinely ordained country is "theological liberalism."
In a video posted to YouTube on Tuesday, the head of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention tackled the question of whether or not the U.S. is a Christian nation.
About 10 days before Donald Trump overwhelmed Ted Cruz in Indiana, as I was rearranging some books in my library (to make room for some recent acquisitions), I came across a book, Neil Postman's Amusing Ourselves to Death. Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business, which I remember making quite an impression on me when it was originally published in 1985.
Postman, at the time a professor of communication arts and sciences at New York University, had already published fifteen books. Amusing Ourselves to Death was destined to be the most memorable and insightful.
As I casually began to peruse the book, memories came flooding back to me of just why I was so sobered by Postman's insights in 1985. I found myself sitting down in my study and virtually re-reading the entirety of this deceptively small volume. The more I read the more dumfounded I was by Postman's prophetic insights into what was then America's future and is now too often a painful description of America's present and may very well portend an even more depressing future. more >>

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has admitted he would rather run against Hillary Clinton rather than her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, arguing that the "dysfunctional" political system is rigged against the senator from Vermont.
"I would rather run against Crooked Hillary Clinton than Bernie Sanders and that will happen because the books are cooked against Bernie," Trump wrote in a Tweet on Wednesday.
"What a great evening we had. So interesting that Sanders beat Crooked Hillary. The dysfunctional system is totally rigged against him," he added, referring to both Trump and Sander's respective victories in the Indiana primaries. more >>
In my opinion, failure to recognize diverse gifts may explain why many people are divided on the issue of religion and politics. For instance, John MacArthur, James Dobson, Chuck Colson, Tony Perkins, Jim Garlow, and D. James Kennedy have/had different ministries, but all fall under the umbrella of Christian service.
God creates, within each of us, varying desires, talents, and levels of interests. If God has called a man to preach and teach His Word, that will be his passion. If God has called a Christian to pursue politics, that will be his or her passion, and so on.
Problems arise when we become judgmental and fail to respect our differences. Activists should not expect everyone to share their passion for politics, and those who believe Christians should stay out of politics must understand that God clearly calls some Christians to the political arena. more >>
