An ex-gay ministry group has released a documentary comprised of interviews with individuals who identify as having formerly struggled with same-sex attraction.
Mastering Life Ministries announced last week the release of "Such Were Some of You," a documentary featuring interviews with 29 people who describe themselves as "former homosexuals."
David Kyle Foster, founder and director of Mastering Life Ministries, told The Christian Post that "Such Were Some of You" was made because his organization "wants people to know that Jesus Christ can transform anyone's life, including homosexuals, and we want them to know how He does it." more >>
Our esteemed Family Research Council (FRC) colleague, Dr. David Prentice has lectured around the world on the wonders of ethical stem cell research. Dr. Prentice has catalogued the more than seventy treatments that bring needed relief to more than 60,000 persons a year. The great thing about Adult Stem Cells is that they are most often taken from the patient's own body, thus overcoming the problem of rejection by the patient's immune system.
Dr. Prentice's pioneering efforts got us thinking: Does the Body Politic also have mechanisms within our ancient Constitution designed to cure our partisan illnesses? Is it possible that the Founding Fathers anticipated the current seemingly intractable clash of political ambition and gave us a way out?
Speaker John Boehner has gone into federal court seeking a ruling that would compel the President of the United States to abide by his Oath of Office. The Speaker has said that he "disagrees" with the calls of some advocating impeachment of the president. As long as he holds the Speaker's gavel, he can effectively take that option off the table. more >>
There's nothing in the United States Constitution stating Americans have the right not to pay their bills. In fact, the Declaration of Independence, which gave birth to our nation, notes the only unalienable rights we have are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Yet thousands of Detroit residents think they have the right not to pay their water bills and demand their water remain on. About 80,000 residential water accounts are past due to the tune of $43 million. The audacity of freeloaders!
Detroit is an $18 billion bankrupt mess, struggling quite literally to keep the lights on and provide basic services to residents like police protection and emergency services. A year ago, about 40 percent of the cities 88,000 street lamps didn't work and half of the cities 78,0000 abandoned buildings were declared dangerous. more >>
The Transportation Security Administration is strongly denying accusations that it has been allowing illegal immigrants to board American jetliners without proper identification.
The National Border Patrol Council, a union representing thousands of Border Patrol agents, accused the TSA of letting illegals board airplanes with a "Notice to Appear" document instead of a passport or official government identification card.
Union leaders said illegals were allowed to board jetliners without proper identification at airports in El Paso and Laredo, Texas. Breitbart News first reported the story. more >>
In the midst of an unprecedented number of unaccompanied Central American children migrating across the Mexican-American border, Conservative and progressive Evangelicals have called upon Congress to authorize additional funds to address the crisis. The letter, signed by the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference's Samuel Rodriguez, Sojourners' Jim Wallis, and World Vision's Richard Stearns, also asks the legislative branch to resist calls to weaken a human trafficking bill.
"Children are vulnerable even in the best of circumstances and warrant special protection beyond that offered to adults," stated the Evangelical Immigration Table letter. "This vulnerability is compounded among children who flee situations of criminal gangs, sexual violence, trauma and extreme poverty, without their parents to accompany them. Evangelicals are guided by Jesus' admonitions to welcome and protect children."
The White House suggested recently that it might be open to modifying a 2008 trafficking law, which currently allows migrant children to stay in the country for up to several years before receiving a hearing, but Evangelicals pushed back against any sort of amendment to the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act more >>
A Muslim candidate running for commissioner in Coffee County, Tennessee claims his Republican opponent has spread false rumors regarding his patriotism and religion.
Zak Mohyuddin, an engineer and 25-year resident of Tullahoma, says the claims made by his Republican opponent for Coffee County commissioner are "offensive and completely untrue." Mohyuddin, who is running as a Democrat, has decried statements made in a letter sent to voters by his opponent, Commissioner Mark Kelly, earlier in July.
In the letter, Kelly reportedly claims that Mohyuddin had "expressed his beliefs publicly" that "the American flag should be removed from public buildings because it is a symbol of tyranny and oppression; that public prayer should be banned because it insults non-Christians; and that the Bible should be removed from public places," according to The Tullahoma News. In the letter, Kelly also points to his own Christian values and his belief that the Bible "belongs in public places." more >>
