Leading evangelist and humanitarian Franklin Graham has chastised Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton for saying last week in a meeting with Black Lives Matter activists that she doesn't believe changing hearts is the way to true racial reconciliation.
Earlier this week, CNN released video it had obtained showing a behind-the-scenes meeting between a group of leading Black Lives Matter activists and the former secretary of state after one of her campaign events in New Hampshire.
In the video, Clinton is seen arguing with Julius Jones, the founder of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Worcester, Massachusetts, about what should be done to help establish racial justice for African-Americans in the country. more >>
As former executive director of Family Research Council's lobbying arm Josh Duggar admitted Thursday that he cheated on his wife, Anna, and developed a secret addiction to pornography, FRC President Tony Perkins condemned Duggar's actions Thursday and labeled the former reality TV star's conduct as "deceitful behavior."
As the news broke Wednesday that the former family values activist paid nearly $1,000 for two subscriptions to the online marital affair coordination website Ashley Madison, Duggar, who is the oldest son on the now-canceled TLC reality show "19 Kids and Counting," took to the Duggar family website to come clean about his adulterous acts and ponagraphy use in a statement.
Duggar had politically advocated for traditional family values as the executive director of Family Research Council Action and resigned from his position in May following the revelation that he molested five girls when he was 14 and 15 years old. In his statement, Duggar admits to having used pornography and cheating on his wife while he promoted the importance of living by biblical values. more >>

"I like the pope. I actually like him. He's becoming very political, there's no question about it. But I like him. He seems like a pretty good guy." more >>
The government of Slovakia has said it will take in struggling migrants from Syria and other countries under a European Union scheme to share the burden of 40,000 new arrivals to the continent, but stipulated it will only be taking Christians, and not Muslims.
"We want to help Europe with the migration issue. We could take 800 Muslims but we don't have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?" interior ministry spokesman Ivan Metik said, arguing that the policy is not discriminatory.
"We want to really help Europe with this migration wave, but … we are only a transit country and the people don't want to stay in Slovakia," he added. more >>
