WASHINGTON — Alan Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame and a featured speaker at this year's Values Voter Summit, says his family votes for leaders based on their social values, not fiscal policy.
"I vote per my values, what I believe in," said Robertson, the eldest son of Duck Commander company founder Phil Robertson in an interview with The Christian Post on Friday.
A former senior pastor of White's Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, Robertson explained that, as conservative Christians, his family tends "to vote more because of our spiritual values than anything else." more >>
Former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, issued a Facebook post inviting famed atheist activist Richard Dawkins to come meet her six-year-old son, Trig, who has Down syndrome after Dawkins tweeted last week that he felt it was "immoral" not to "abort and try again" when an unborn baby has been diagnosed with Down's.
While most people did not respond kindly through social media to Dawkins' initial tweet, which was a response to a woman who asked his advice about the moral dilemma of what to do when pregnant with a fetus diagnosed with Down syndrome, Palin did not criticize Dawkins for what he tweeted. Instead, she seemed to acknowledged his point of view and extended an invitation for Dawkins to come meet her son in hopes that he would see the "beauty" that lies beneath the diagnosis.
Palin's Facebook post, which included 11 pictures of Trig, reads as follows: more >>
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has stated that President Barack Obama should be impeached due to his handling of the most recent crisis on the United States' southern border.
In a column posted on Breitbart.com on Tuesday, Palin explained her reasons for wanting President Obama impeached.
President Barack Obama pushed back Friday against the joke that he wears "mom jeans." "I look very sharp in jeans," he told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview.
"I've been unfairly maligned about my jeans," he said. "The truth is, generally, I look very sharp in jeans."
Obama claimed that the joke originated from the time he wore loose jeans to a baseball game: "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher's mound and didn't want to feel confined while I was pitching." more >>
Former GOP vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin predicted in 2008 that Russia might invade Ukraine if then-Sen. Barack Obama became president and "high-brow" Foreign Policy magazine mocked her for it.
But as concerns continue to mount over whether or not Russia intends to launch an assault on Ukraine's besieged new government, Palin is making no apology for her recent "Told-Ya-So" response to critics who dismissed her as a "stupid," "insipid woman" when she made the comments.
Mormon political pundit Glenn Beck, Hillsong pastor and anti-human trafficking activist Christine Caine, and the 40th president's adopted son and conservative columnist Michael Reagan will speak as part of Liberty University's spring convocation series.
Johnnie Moore, the Viriginia-based school's senior vice president of communications, said that the school annually offers dozens of prolific leaders in church, business, science and culture a platform to speak with young evangelicals.
"Liberty's convocation is the largest weekly gathering of Christian young people in America. There's no other environment where you can speak to more 18 to 22 year olds each week," Moore told The Christian Post. more >>
