One of the most prominent pollsters who focuses on religious beliefs and behaviors of Americans says most evangelicals actually doubt that Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is a conservative.
George Barna, the founder of the research firm Barna Group, explained during an interview with One News Now that despite media reports suggesting Trump is winning over evangelical voters, many evangelicals are weary of Trump's new-found conservatism.
"They don't really believe he's a conservative — only four percent believe he's genuinely a conservative," Barna explained. more >>
It's one thing when non-religious supporters of Donald Trump attack their candidate's detractors in the most profane and vile way. It's another thing when Bible-quoting, professing Christians do the same. Yet this is a phenomenon I see with increasing frequency. What can we learn from it?
On a daily basis, I receive lovely responses to my articles and videos, with comments like: "YOU'RE A F---ING IDIOT. duuuuumb" (This was in response to my video as to why we should boycott Target. As with all the quotes that follow, the profanity was spelled out in full.)
Louisiana's House of Representatives have passed a bill that aims to ban a common second trimester abortion method called a D&E, in which an abortionist uses forceps to tears body parts off a live, unborn child.
House Bill 1081, also known as the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, passed Thursday in a vote of 83 yeas and 0 nays.
Republican Representative Mike Johnson, the legislator who introduced HB 1081, said in a message on Facebook: "This legislation will protect unborn babies by ending the barbaric practice of dismemberment abortion in our state. A dismemberment abortion, also known as a D&E, is a second trimester abortion method where the abortionist uses large forceps to seize and tear body parts from a live, unborn child." more >>
Satanists are on fire over House Speaker John Boehner's contemptuous comparison of Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz to the prince of Hell, Lucifer.
Boehner, in comments that have since gone viral, told an audience at Stanford University on Wednesday night, according to the Stanford Daily, that Cruz is "Lucifer in the flesh."
"I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b**** in my life," Boehner told the audience. more >>
A Pentagon investigation has found that war crimes were not committed last October when a United States aerial gunship killed 42 civilians during an accidental airstrike on a Doctors Without Borders medical charity hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan.
Army Gen. Joseph L. Votel, head of U.S. Central Command, said at a news conference on Friday that the "tragedy" was a result of errors that led 16 U.S. service members to believe they were bombarding a Taliban command center last Oct. 3.
"They were trying to do the right thing. They were trying to support our Afghan partners," Votel explained. "Unfortunately, they made a wrong judgment in this particular case and ended up targeting this Doctors Without Borders facility." more >>
Sojourners founder Jim Wallis and dozens of other Christian leaders are condemning Donald Trump's use of public fear and resentment throughout the 2016 election as being "a moral and theological crisis" that "threatens the well being" of the American society.
More than 50 prominent Christians "from across the political spectrum," but mostly from the Christian left, have signed onto a declaration titled "Called to Resist Bigotry — A Statement of Faithful Obedience" that calls on Christians to resist rallying around "demagogic" political candidates who rely on exploiting anger and "hatred" to gain support.
"At significant times in history, however, Christians from across the political spectrum come together around political realities that threaten the fundamental integrity of Christian faith and the well-being of society itself," the declaration explained. "Sometimes what is called politics raises moral crises, in which our faith is literally at stake in the way we respond." more >>
