The 2016 Republican presidential candidates laid out their tax plans during Tuesday night's Fox Business presidential debate, where retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson reiterated the fairness of his tithing-inspired tax plan and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, detailed his own fair tax proposal.
Moderator Neil Cavuto questioned Carson on his advocation for a flat tax system, which Carson has previously claimed to be based on the biblical practice of a congregant giving one-tenth of his or her income to a church.
Carson explained at the GOP debate in late October that his system would realistically have all Americans pay up to 15 percent, instead of 10 percent, in a flat income tax. Cavuto then pointed out billionaire Donald Trump's tax plan which calls for wealthier individuals to pay a higher tax rate "because it's a fair thing to do." more >>
As America continues to grow more hostile toward public prayer and conservative religious viewpoints, younger generations of courageous Christians will be faced with the challenge of defying the norm of secular culture to defend prayer and biblical truth.
In his book No Fear: Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins highlights 11 instances when young men and women risked everything to defend biblical truth and their religious beliefs from intense societal, political, cultural and spiritual opposition.
Perkins hopes readers, especially younger Christians, will be inspired to live out their faith with the same courage displayed in the real-life stories exhibited in his book, No Fear, which was praised by leading evangelist Franklin Graham, who believes the book will "help raise up a new generation of world changers." more >>
Serbian soldiers are receiving free Bibles as part of an effort to promote moral transformation in the ranks and prevent future war crimes.
The London based Telegraph reports that 4,000 copies of the New Testament have already been sent to soldiers with funding coming from the British arm of the Bible Society.
Notable British politician and abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759-1833) is one of the founders of the society that promotes the distribution of Scripture but not a specific faith or denomination. More funding for Bibles for soldiers in Serbia will come from church members across the U.K. more >>
Jim Wallis has denounced a recent federal court decision that prevents, for now, the implementation of President Barack Obama's immigration reform agenda.
A three judge panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 on Monday against a federal program that would have granted an estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants legal status.
Wallis, who is the founder and president of the Evangelical social justice group Sojourners, said in a statement Tuesday that the panel majority "put politics over people." more >>
Melania Trump, wife of 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, praised the fourth GOP presidential debate held at the Milwaukee Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as "fair and elegant" in a rare interview Tuesday night.
"A great evening, yes. Just the way it was handled, fair and elegant and fair questions. It's all about the economy and business and he's master of that," the former model said pointing to her husband in a brief reaction to The Brody File about the debate hosted by the Fox Business Network and the Wall Street Journal.
A recurring critique of President Obama has been his lack of experience. Barack Obama, part Progressive ideologue and part cerebral academic, has been moonlighting as the leader of the Free World and consequently ruining everything.
He doesn't know how to build coalitions, he can't work effectively with Congress, he passes the buck and claims ignorance when major things go wrong. His actions in the realm of foreign policy betray a naïve understanding of geopolitics.
Sarah Palin made hay of Obama's lack of experience when she compared her mayoral responsibilities to his role as a community organizer, and conservatives cheered and nodded in enthusiastic agreement. more >>
