In an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night, leading social conservative activist Tony Perkins endorsed Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz for president, joining a growing list of prominent Evangelical and conservative leaders who have officially backed the staunch conservative candidate.
The endorsement comes after Perkins, the president of the social conservative advocay group Family Research Council, was reported to have been a part of a meeting of as many as 50 national Evangelical leaders who gathered last December at a hotel in Tysons Corner, Virginia and voted to coalesce their support around Cruz.
Although not all participants of the Dec.7 meeting will endorse Cruz, most of the participants are expected to do so, including some who have already issued their public support for Cruz — Bob Vander Plaats, Richard Viguerie, Focus on the Family's James Dobson and now, Perkins. more >>
Dear Mr. Falwell,
In light of your not-unexpected endorsement of Donald Trump for president, I have some candid questions for you.

The Christian Post invited all the presidential candidates of both major parties to answer the same set of 12 questions. Here are Marco Rubio's answers.
1. Why do you want to be president and what does your personal faith have to do with your decision?

And now, my faith compels me to do everything in my power to make sure that we preserve the principles that have made this country great. more >>

Even though Republican 2016 presidential frontrunner Donald Trump didn't know him at the time, he said a year ago when he saw Texas megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress on TV, he liked him because he was saying things that the real estate mogul "wanted to hear."
And the like-fest continued Saturday at the Christian Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, where Trump exclaimed "wow!" then called Jeffress "incredible" after he delivered a glowing prayer and introduction of the real estate mogul before his speech at the school.
"Today we come to thank you for Donald Trump, who is willing to selflessly offer himself for service to this nation for no other reason than his desire to make America great again," Jeffress told God. more >>
