The current refugee problem in Europe is threatening "the very core of the European Union," said Dimitris Avramopoulos, migration commissioner for the EU, last week.
British scholar Richard Abbott said in 2003 that "the decision to omit reference to God (from the EU Constitution) was no mere oversight," but "a deliberate decision, after considerable debate, to base EU laws upon Enlightenment humanism rather than Europe's Christian heritage." more >>
The stakes for our judiciary could not be higher in the 2016 presidential election. Our 45th President won't just be nominating the traditional one or two justices to the Supreme Court during his or her tenure, but likely three or four.
For better or worse, the Supreme Court sits on the precipice of a sea change; decades of constitutional precedent hang in the balance, with religious liberty, freedom of conscience, gun rights, and the sanctity of life facing increasing assault from judicial activists.
Jeb Bush, throughout his two terms as Governor of Florida, has demonstrated an acute awareness of the importance of fighting for and confirming proven conservative judges. For this reason, more than any other Republican candidate currently running, Governor Bush is the best choice to protect our Constitution. more >>
Donald Trump on Saturday vowed more power for Christianity if he becomes the president of the United States.
During his speech in Sioux Center, Iowa on Saturday, the Republican presidential frontrunner said he would not be having much trouble if he had proposed to ban Christians rather than Muslims from entering the United States. The billionaire also embraced his identity as a Presbyterian Protestant at the beginning of his speech, according to the Business Insider.
It can be remembered that Trump drew flak in December 2015 after suggesting that Muslims should be banned from entering the United States. On Saturday, the real estate mogul told the crowd at Christian liberal-arts school Dordt College that Christianity is under attack and that Christians do not really realize and exercise their political influence in the country, the report details. more >>
"What do you think of Donald Trump?"
Okay, I don't really care to know, and I definitely have my own opinion ... but that's not what this blog is all about.
What it is about is how such a lightning rod subject Donald Trump is and how easy it is to use him as a Gospel conversation starter. Because EVERYONE seems to have an opinion about him and many are just itching to express it. more >>
WASHINGTON — Thousands of devoted pro-lifers braved through the threat of Winter Storm Jonas and marched down to the United States Supreme Court Building Friday to demand an end to abortion by participating in the 2016 March for Life on the 43rd anniversary of the court's decision in Roe v. Wade.
The march, which was preceded by a rally featuring a number of prominent pro-life speakers including Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, began in front of the Washington Monument right as the snow began to fall. But, the early arrival of the winter storm could not deter the participants from continuing their 2-mile trek down Constitution Avenue.
"The world may think that we are a little bit crazy to be here on a day like today but those of us standing here know that there is no sacrifice too great to fight the human rights abuse of abortion," March for Life President Jeanne Mancini told participants before the march. more >>
The ideal presidential candidate is a man or woman with God at the core of his or her life and the Constitution at the center of their philosophy of government.
That candidate would probably not be Donald Trump.
Many conservatives, even some evangelical Christians, may not get it. That includes those at Liberty University on January 18 who rocked the arena with applause as Trump spoke tweets and seven second soundbites that garbled true conservative principles and perhaps even Christianity. more >>
