Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has commented on the recent Donald Trump scandal by arguing it is strange that a culture which has largely thrown God and Christianity out of its midst goes back to using Christian morality to judge lewdness.
"America by and large has thrown God and Christianity out of the culture, but it is suddenly using Christian morality to judge lewdness! It is interesting that much of the culture demands relative morality, but suddenly wants to apply Christian morality to a politician," Ham wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday.
"Now that many secular media are using Christian morality to judge politics, will they now also judge TV programs/movies by the same standard?" he asked. more >>
Famed preacher and sociology professor at Eastern University Tony Campolo told The Christian Post in an interview that on theological matters he still considers himself an evangelical Christian.
Earlier this month, Campolo garnered headlines after the U.K. publication Premiere published remarks he made in which he said he no longer considered himself an evangelical.
The second presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump covered many controversial issues, including a recently released 2005 video showing Trump making lewd comments about women and Clinton's email scandal in which she mishandled classified documents about U.S. operations.

U.S. citizens got a small taste of the Islamist terror threat that hounds Israelis on Sept. 17, with four bombings or bombing attempts in the New York metropolitan area and a Minnesota stabbing attack.
Israel, a country about the size of New Jersey, endured eight terrorist attacks in a four-day period overlapping the American incidents. Even that frightening frequency does not represent "the scale of the attacks during the previous wave" of terror, according to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, an Israeli think tank.
Israel's experience shows that the war against Islamist terror is a long and difficult one, but it can be managed while maintaining a democracy's core values. more >>
Isn't it a shame that, at a time when America desperately needs to hear the prophetic voice of the Church, what America hears instead is partisan politics in the name of Jesus?
Isn't it a shame that, instead of the Church leading the way and politicians following, it is politicians leading the way and Christian leaders following?
Of course, there are exceptions to what I'm saying — fine, godly, exceptions — but they are the distinct minority, since, the truth be told, we are guilty of putting our trust in political leaders more than in the power of the Gospel. more >>
It's a story too horrific to believe. Earlier this week, a 16-year-old teenager gave birth to her baby alone in her bedroom and then threw the newborn out of the second story window.
After telling her mother what she'd done, media outlets reported that the infant's grandmother ran outside to try and save the baby — but it was too late.
My shock and horror turned into crying … soft, at first, followed by loud, uncontrollable sobs. I found myself on the floor of the room containing nursery basics. more >>
