President Obama's sentimental journey to East Africa should have been a harmonious one. He used the occasion of a toast to Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta to joke about his own search for his birth certificate. The usual round of VIP visits and dinners were marred, however, by this president's insistence on pushing his radical social agenda on Africans.
He lectured the leaders of Kenya about election violence. Meanwhile, Mr. Obama ignored the burgeoning Planned Parenthood scandal back home in the U.S.A. While deploring violence in Kenya's elections that took 1,000 lives in 2007, the President has no remedy for the violence of Planned Parenthood—those traffickers in human flesh. Each day in America, this outfit kills 800 unborn children. And now we know they market their hearts, lungs, and livers. more >>
In 2004, comedian Jay Leno quipped, "They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years, and [heck], we're not using it anymore."
Leno's joke expressed genuine lament for blatant and repetitive constitutional violations evidenced by elected officials. However, while joking about not using the U.S. Constitution anymore, the reality is that many advocate that the U.S. Constitution should, and must, be changed and/or discarded.
Efforts to do so exist in academic and political advocacy. more >>
As anger from the political left over GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee's recent comments that President Obama is "marching Israelis to the door of the oven" continues, one TV host, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, has questioned the former Baptist pastor's Christian faith and religious convictions.
"I really like Mike Huckabee," Brzezinski said on Tuesday. "He's been a friend of the show for years. He's sat at this table many times. He's smarty, witty, charming. ... I don't agree with everything he has to say but I love that he's a man of deep religious convictions, or so I thought."
Later on the "Morning Joe" co-host suggested Republican candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is "saying the right thing when the right thing needs to be said, and not saying the wrong thing. Certainly staying away from crazy comments. From destructive comments. From vitriolic comments. From quite frankly, uncivil comments — quite frankly, un-Christian comments." more >>
A North Korean cultural representative claims it's "absolutely false" that Christians are being persecuted in the Communist state, and argued that American evangelicals "take advantage" of drug addicts and homeless people, forcing them to convert to their religion in exchange for food.
Evangelical Focus editor Joel Forster reported the comments from the Spaniard Alejandro Cao, representative of Cultural Relations of North Korea with Foreign Countries, came in a Twitter exchange between the two.
When Forster asked Cao about widely reported Christian persecution under the administration of Kim Jong Un, Cao replied: "It is absolutely false. The problem in the world is that there are enlighted people like you who believe themselves to be representatives of God or even God." more >>
WASHINGTON — Pro-life "products of conception" protested Planned Parenthood in at least 65 cities across the United States Tuesday, calling for the government to immediately defund the nation's largest abortion provider in light of the emergence of three, so far, undercover videos showing high-level Planned Parenthood officials discussing compensation for aborted baby organs.
As a third sting video by the Center for Medical Progress was released Tuesday that allegedly shows a technician who worked for a partner of Planned Parenthood explaining how the companies were compensated more for later-developing organs like hearts, lungs and livers, three Republican presidential candidates chastised the organization for its "callous" disregard of human life at the #WomenBetrayed rally just outside the U.S. Capitol.
The organs, critics say, are not from babies, but from "products of conception." The organs, however, are valued by researchers because they are human organs. Planned Parenthood officials, who are themselves products of conception, maintain they have not violated any laws because they are legally allowed to seek compensation as long as they don't make a profit off of the organs they harvest. more >>
In the third installment of secret videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former StemExpress employee reveals the gory details of her on-the-job training in the procurement and sell of aborted babies' body parts.
Holly O'Donnell, who was hired as a phlebotomist, passed out on her first day of working at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic after she was directed to pick up a baby's dismembered leg using tweezers.
"I could feel death and pain shoot up my body," she exclaimed. "I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses." more >>
