Florida Pastor Paula White, former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez are among the signatories of an open letter demanding that Hillary Clinton apologize for the "Christophobic" rhetoric found in emails among campaign staffers.
Earlier this month Wikileaks posted a large number of Clinton campaign emails, which among other things showed staff members of the campaign talking disparagingly about Catholics and evangelicals.
An advanced copy of the letter was sent to The Christian Post earlier this week and on Thursday a copy was sent that included a list of signatories. more >>
A group of students at Liberty University has clashed with the president of the Virginia-based evangelical liberal arts college, Jerry Falwell Jr., over his continued support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump despite recent lurid allegations of sexual assault made against him by multiple women.
A report in The New York Times Wednesday cited two women who accused Trump of inappropriately touching them.
One of the women, Manhattan, New York resident Jessica Leeds, 74, said more than 30 years ago when she was a traveling businesswoman at a paper company, Trump sexually assaulted her in the first-class cabin of a flight to New York.

For the past five months I, along with 24 others, have been a part of Donald Trump's Religious Advisory Council. Our responsibility is to offer prayer, spiritual support, and pastoral counsel to Mr. Trump and his team.
There has never been an expectation of endorsement nor were we asked to campaign for the candidate. No one sought the role, but were invited and encouraged to speak frankly and freely.
We are not making group statements or sending press releases. We are not judges; we are counselors. Our group is made up of bright, bold, Christian leaders who care deeply about the glory of God and our nation. This has been a private conversation with Mr. Trump, members of the Trump team, and of course, one another. more >>
R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has called the upcoming 2016 U.S. presidential election a "disaster," and argued evangelicals risk destroying their moral credibility if they vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"When it comes to Donald Trump, evangelicals are going to have to ask the huge question, 'Is it worth destroying our moral credibility to support someone who is beneath the baseline level of human decency for anyone who should deserve our vote?'" Mohler said in an appearance on CNN, responding to a recently released 2005 tape featuring lewd comments by Trump on women.
"I think that's a far bigger question than the 2016 election. This election is a disaster for the American people; it's an excruciating moment for American evangelicals," he added. more >>
