After making headlines last week for saying Donald Trump is a "baby Christian" who has accepted a relationship with Jesus, evangelical leader James Dobson has emphasized that even though the Republican nominee is still maturing in his Christian walk, that is no reason to not vote for him and give Hillary Clinton the power to "run the world."
After the presumptive Republican presidential nominee met with over 900 evangelical leaders in New York City last Tuesday, Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and Family Talk radio, said during an interview with Pastor Michael Anthony of GodFactor.com that Trump "did accept a relationship with Christ."
While most sports fans will remember former University of Tennessee coach Pat Summitt as the all-time winningest coach in NCAA women's basketball history, the fallen legend will be remembered by those closest to her as a woman who built her life's successes around her love for Christ.
The 64-year-old Summitt, who led the Lady Volunteers to 1,098 wins and eight national titles over her 38-year coaching career, lost her five-year battle with Alzheimer's Tuesday morning and the news of her death spread sorrow and grief all over the world.
Even though many will remember Summitt as being the instrumental figure who helped push women's college basketball out from the shadows of the men, she leaves behind a legacy of devotion, loyalty and faith that might get lost in the translation of such a profound and influential career. more >>
Prominent conservative author and essayist Mary Eberstadt has released a new book that aims to show liberals of "reason" just how intolerant and incivil today's secularist political Left has become toward traditional religious beliefs on marriage, sex and abortion.
Eberstadt, the author of a number of books who has also been published in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, National Review, First Things and other news outlets, released her new book, It's Dangerous to Believe: Religious Freedom and Its Enemies, last week and spoke in Washington on Tuesday to discuss the main takeaways from her work.
"Today, as opposed to 40 years ago, [social issues] are no longer contested. They are regarded as settled. The progressive secularists side has chalked up victory after victory on cases involving school prayer, obscenity, abortion and same-sex marriage," Eberstadt told attendees at a lunchtime discussion at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. more >>

WASHINGTON — Catholic University of America professor Paul Sullins said Friday that there is "no expectation" of sexual faithfulness in many gay marriages, noting that studies have shown only a small minority of gay marriages are truly monogamous.
Sullins, an associate professor of sociology who focuses on family studies, participated in a Family Research Council panel discussion on the aftermath of last June's Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. The discussion focused on the effect the court ruling has had on American society one year later.
After Sullins, Institute on Religion & Democracy President Mark Tooley and the director of FRC's Center for Religious Liberty Travis Weber gave 10-minute presentations and fielded questions from the audience. more >>
