Over 700 female Christian leaders have banded together to condemn Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's misogynistic behavior and his degrading acts toward women.
As Trump's character has come under fire in recent weeks after recordings were uncovered showing the billionaire real estate mogul making disgusting comments about how he treats women and after sexual assault allegations have been made against him, hundreds of female Christian pastors and lay leaders have signed a joint statement demanding that the Republican nominee show some remorse.
"As Christian women we are appalled by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's recorded remarks that disparage women and condone sexual assault," the statement, which was issued last week, states. "Such language cannot be dismissed as 'locker room talk.' Mr. Trump must offer public contrition that fully acknowledges the seriousness and depravity of his actions." more >>
Make no mistake about it. If you are a conservative Christian and Hillary Clinton becomes our next president, she will declare war on certain aspects of your faith. Your religious liberties will be targeted, and your biblical beliefs will be branded disturbing, if not downright dangerous.
Do not be deceived.
She has made herself perfectly clear on this in the recent past, and we deny this is to our own peril. more >>
If you care about the freedom-to-disagree in America, keep your eyes on the gubernatorial election in the Tar Heel state. In "North Carolina Governor could lose election over bathroom bill" (adn.com, 10/9/16), Dana Millbank writes, "North Carolina's Republican governor, Pat McCrory, was a good bet for reelection earlier this year …. Since then, McCrory's fortunes have been, well, in the toilet."
Recently, I interviewed Tami Fitzgerald, president and founder of the North Carolina Values Coalition, for my radio show and asked her: "Why should somebody in Three Forks, Idaho, care about what's going on in North Carolina?"
She said, "It is imperative that North Carolina retain the law that they passed if there's ever going to be a state or another governor that will take up a religious freedom issue again. We have been battling this for almost six months now, and the Human Rights Commission, which is the national gay and lesbian group, which is headquartered in D.C., has almost taken up residence in North Carolina, to fight this state law." more >>
Over the past couple of years, there has been increased public outrage over police violence against African-Americans.
Entities like the "Black Lives Matter" movement and many liberals argue that such violence is pervasive and requires major reforms within police departments across the country.
Others, including police unions and many conservatives, argue that these concerns are based on misinterpreting statistics and are fomenting anti-police sentiment in many cities. more >>
Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress has said that he disagrees with Christian author Max Lucado when it comes to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, explaining that he wants to see the "meanest, toughest" option for fighting the Islamic State terror group and other threats.
Jeffress, who leads First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, said in an interview with NPR that while he "loves" and agrees on certain things with Lucado, he disagrees on what qualities are needed for president.
"Well, first of all, I see a lot of common ground with Max Lucado. I love Max Lucado. And, you know, I've disagreed with his point of view," Jeffress explained. more >>
Stunned, I contemplated what I had read. Just days after Sergeant Owen in Lancaster, California, was brutally killed, a young high schooler was photographed at a local high school wearing a shirt that read, "Shoot the Police."
Emotions surfaced from anger to sadness. How can we allow this? How can the school allow this? We'll remove Bibles from our schools but allow this! No wonder America is crumbling from within.
The picture was quickly removed from Facebook but many saved the image. I found myself hoping that it was photoshopped by someone inciting violence versus a high schooler wearing this shirt as the school turned a blind eye. more >>
