Best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado was never consulted about being featured in a progressive Christian nonprofit's anti-Donald Trump ad campaign that launched last week and includes audio from his interview with National Public Radio earlier this year.
The Christian Post reported on Friday that the left-leaning Faith in Public Life Action Fund recently launched a $300,000 anti-Trump ad campaign that features four different video ads highlighting the Republican nominee's offensive comments about women.
As the ads attempt to target evangelical millennials and Catholic women, they will run from now until election night on a number of national and state news websites, including The Washington Post, The New York Times and USA Today. more >>
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey didn't bite her tongue when she was asked to comment on the 2016 presidential election on T.D. Jakes' show on Thursday. Being a lifelong Democrat, Oprah affirmed her support for Hillary Clinton and encouraged other Americans to vote for the Democratic presidential nominee if they "like this country."
"The reason why I haven't been vocal other than saying, 'I'm with her,' is because I didn't know what to say that could actually pierce through all the noise and the chaos and the disgusting vitriol that's going on, and actually be heard."
The Oscar nominee told the audience that the decision between the two major candidates should be clear. "But there really is no choice, people. All the people sitting around talking about they can't decide, this is what I want to say. All the people, I hear this all the time, you get into conversations — and there's not a person in this room who hasn't been in the same conversation — where people say, 'I just don't know if I like her.'" more >>
A National Review writer and attorney who briefly considered an independent presidential run has been ruthlessly targeted by the alt-right for his refusal to support Donald Trump for President.
David French of Columbia, Tennessee detailed Friday in a National Review article titled "The Price I've Paid for Opposing Donald Trump" what alt-righties have done to him and his family over the past several months. Because he is prominent public figure that is steadfastly #neverTrump the hate and threats that have been heaped on them have been nothing short of horrifying.
Because of the alt-right's sick obsession with racial preservation, what has really raised their ire about French is that he and his wife have an adopted daughter from Ethiopia. Among the many chilling things alt-righties sent him were photo-shopped images of "[his] daughter's face in gas chambers, with a smiling Trump in a Nazi uniform preparing to press a button and kill her," and vile messages laced with racial epithets asserting that his wife had slept with black men while he was deployed in Iraq. more >>
An academic freedom group based in New York City released a ranking system on how well America's best colleges and universities do when it comes to academic freedom.
Heterodox Academy, a group dedicated to advancing "viewpoint diversity" in higher education, released their "Heterodox Academy Guide to Colleges" last week.
"As prospective students begin filling out forms and looking to see which campuses fit their idea of a supportive and robust learning and social environment, they look to a range of guides and ranking systems," stated Heterodox Academy. more >>
The Reverend Samuel Rodriguez had stated that Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton wants Hispanic Christians to go against their own religious beliefs in supporting her.
In a statement emailed to supporters on Monday morning, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said that Clinton wants Christians "'to Sacrifice Our Most Cherished Values."
"Latinos are pro-life. Latinos, whether they be Evangelical or Catholic, must never sacrifice truth on the altar of political expediency," stated Rodriguez. more >>
Wayne Grudem is a very well known and highly respected theologian who has been at the center of attention for his support of Trump (July 28), then for his rejection of Trump (Oct. 9), and now for again supporting "Trump's policies"(Oct. 19).
Now, to begin, this is not a good look for Grudem. Did the tapes that led to his rejection of Trump really reveal anything new about Trump? Of course not. They simply confirmed what we already knew about him — his moral character is, let's just say, not what we would hope for in a president. What new information came out about Trump between when the tapes were released and now? As far as I can tell, not much. So maybe writing this post is a waste of time since Grudem may very well write another post next week again retracting his support for "Trump's policies."
Flip-flopping aside, what do we make of Grudem's new stance that if we don't like either candidate then we should simply vote for Trump's policies? Well, unfortunately for the American voter, Grudem's case is a complete failure for anyone who doesn't accept consequentialist-based reasoning. more >>
