In response to a reader's concerns for their grandchildren who will never know what it's like to start each school day off with a prayer, the Rev. Billy Graham says while he doesn't believe prayer will ever return to public schools, there are other ways students can talk to God throughout their day.
"Do you think we'll ever get back to the days when they allowed prayer in our public schools?" the grandparent asked, emphasizing that they found the absence of prayer and other religious practices within schools to be troubling.
"When I was young, we used to pray and read the Bible in school every day, but my grandchildren aren't able to experience this, and it upsets me a great deal." more >>
The American Center for Law and Justice has said that it is preparing a series of critical legal actions to address the "problem from Hell" in the face of the ongoing Christian genocide at the hands of the Islamic State terror group, including letters to every U.S. presidential candidate laying out their obligations to protect victims.
The ACLJ, whose petition to protect Christians and other minorities has been signed by over 174,000 people, said that the truth lies in the statistics — there were 1.4 million Christians in Iraq in 2003, but now that number has dropped by 82 percent, down to a population of 250,000 or less.
The numbers are just as harrowing in Syria, where two-thirds of the 2 million or so Christian population has been left displaced or slaughtered because of Islamic extremism and the ongoing civil war. more >>
Many Americans do not want to vote for either Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton or Republican presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump.
According to a CBS News/New York Times poll from March, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have the highest unfavorability ratings of any major party nominee since 1984.
However, there are other individuals running for president this year. These third party candidates are hoping that the high rates of disapproval for Clinton and Trump will benefit their campaigns greatly. more >>
Republican congresswoman Virginia Foxx firmly believes that it was God's will for her to enter into politics, recently revealing the "unusual route" she took to Congress.
"I have no reason at all to be there except for the hand of God," Foxx recently told "The Church Boys" podcast, before detailing how she once received a sign from God that gave her the confidence needed to run for the House of Representatives.
Foxx, who was once uncertain about whether a run for Congress was the right move, recalled intensely praying to the Lord one night; she had already served in the state Senate, but she knew that Congress was an entirely different animal. more >>
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has no trouble vowing to restore power to "silenced" Christians through legislation if he is elected president of the United States in November. But to think of himself as God's choice for the White House is just "too big of a burden," he says.
Speaking in a recent interview with The Christian Broadcasting Network Trump was asked of his presidential run: "A lot of Christians believe that you have been chosen for such a time as this. Do you believe that's true and have you ever considered maybe this is a divine calling?"
Trump, appearing slightly stumped by the question, said it wasn't the first time he was hearing the question but sidestepped the notion that he was God's chosen president by eventually declaring "it's too big of a burden." more >>
There is "no scientific basis" for transgender individuals to believe that they are trapped in the wrong body, the American College of Pediatricians argued in a recently released report addressing gender dysphoria in children.
While the Obama administration tries to enforce a transgender bathroom directive in schools across the nation to allow boys to use girls' bathrooms and locker rooms if they identify as female, ACP, a coalition of conservative pediatricians, stated in a report released earlier this month that it is unethical for adults to condition children to misperceive the "physical reality" of their own bodies.
Primarily authored by Dr. Michelle Cretella, a Connecticut-based pediatrician, the report states that gender dysphoria is merely a "psychological" condition and suggests that about 80 to 95 percent of children who believe that they are boys and girls trapped in the wrong body will eventually grow up to accept the reality of their biological sex. more >>
