In an accompanying column Eric Sapp makes the rather startling assertion that "Hillary Clinton Is the Best Choice for Voters Against Abortion."
He then seeks to manipulate the argument by using inflammatory, controversial language.
Example? Mr. Sapp asserts that "Republican leaders say they are 'pro-life,' proclaiming from every street corner their unwavering belief that life begins at conception . . . and then those politicians turn around and say it's ok to murder these same precious unborn children if they were conceived through rape or incest." more >>

In my recent op-ed on how there was no Biblically-consistent way for evangelicals to justify voting for Trump, I touched on the false promises Republicans — and Trump in particular — have been making around abortion. A number of people asked that I expand on that point, and given the importance of abortion to many evangelicals, it's worth a closer and more honest look.
I'll start by saying that I don't think Christians should be single-issue voters since Christ's ministry wasn't single-issue. But if your concern for the unborn determines your vote, Hillary Clinton should be your candidate. more >>
"The phrases 'religious liberty' and 'religious freedom' will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance." — Those were the words uttered by one Mr. Castro.

Is the writing on the wall for religious freedom in this country? Just ask two Arizona calligraphers.
Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski met at a Starbucks café in north Phoenix in January 2015. Both were Christians, and both were artists. They decided to go into business together, combining their love for Jesus with their love for making beautiful things. Soon they launched Brush & Nib Studio, a for-profit art business that sells hand-drawn invitations and paintings.
According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, a leading Christian legal-defense organization, "As Christian artists, Joanna and Breanna had a simple goal for their studio: to recreate the beauty God placed all around us and to share that beauty with others. And this goal made it natural for Joanna and Breanna to focus on artwork for weddings." more >>
This is the best we can do?
That was my initial impression after the debate September 26 between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. If we elect either of them history will need to apologize to Richard Nixon and Warren G. Harding for disdaining them for scandal and corruption.
Nevertheless we must make a choice November 8. more >>
