Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of famous evangelist Billy Graham, says she is ready to vote for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump at the November elections, expressing hope that he can change and become a man of God like King Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible.
"The Democratic Party has so come against God in some of their major issues, that I'm not sure I can vote for the Democratic platform. But whoever is on the Republican side, I will vote for and pray for whoever that is," Lotz said in an interview with Fox News, published on Monday.
When asked whether she can vote for Trump, who is likely to secure the nomination but has faced pushback from notable Evangelical Christians, such as Southern Baptist Convention leader Russell Moore, Lotz said the Bible is full of examples of kings who have changed their ways. more >>
As the U.S. presidential elections heat up and campaigns for both leading nominees of political parties are ongoing, 13 companies of the tech industry in the U.S. are pushing for a Technology Sector Presidential Platform, which includes policy recommendations on strengthening cybersecurity, enhancing data privacy, pursuing an active trade agenda, among others.
According to Tech Times, the group sent an open letter to both presidential candidates last May 4, which outlined several policy recommendations that covered issues regarding the development of American skill and talent pool in the 21st century, fostering a business climate that "rewards risk" and "promotes innovation," creating a "fair and open global market for goods and services" and continuing to provide cutting-edge infrastructure that's entreprenuer-friendly.
The letter was signed by representatives of the 13 companies that include: BSA/The Software Alliance, the Consumer Technology Association, the Information Technology Industry Council, Allied for Startups, Internet Association, Computer & Communications Industry Association, Computing Technology Industry Association, Semiconductor Industry Association, Silicon Valley Leadership Group, Software & Information Industry Association, Technology CEO Council, Telecommunications Industry Association and TechNet. more >>
Leading conservative activist and prominent Ted Cruz supporter Tony Perkins says social conservatives should be "open" to voting for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and argues that any third-party candidate would likely put a Democrat in the White House.
As #NeverTrump conservatives have started the hunt for a viable candidate to step in and launch a bid as a third-party alternative to Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, many believe the political climate is ripe with enough anti-Trump and anti-Hillary animus to make a third-party run viable.
But Perkins, president of the Washington D.C.-based social conservative organization Family Research Council, disagrees, noting that history has proven third-party runs simply do not work. more >>
New York City megachurch pastor, A.R. Bernard, warned Thursday that the prosperity gospel is a false and dangerous concept and anyone who wants to test its validity should look no further than presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The book, he said, is about his journey to become a "man of maturity, decisiveness, consistency and strength." more >>

In honor of Mother's Day, President Obama issued a proclamation celebrating "those who are the first to welcome us into the world."
He continued, "Performing the most important work there is, mothers — biological, foster, or adoptive — are our first role models and earliest motivators. They balance enormous responsibilities and shape who we become as adults, their lessons guiding us throughout life. Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status, mothers have always moved our Nation forward and remained steadfast in their pursuit of a better and brighter future for their children."
This echoed his 2015 proclamation, in which he said, "Whether married or single, LGBT or straight, biological, adoptive, or foster, mothers are the bedrocks of our lives and the foundation of our society." more >>
