    RUSHVILLE, Ind. (WISH) -- An Indiana pastor appears to still be the leader of his church despite the child molestation and solicitation charges he faces and his attempt to take his own life after additional charges came down on Friday. Garry Evans is listed as pastor on the sign in front of Rushville Baptist Temple Church, and now people living doors away want to know why no one from the church is speaking out. "It's wrong. Pure evil. There's evil in that church," said Tim Guck, who lives next door. The man the church says leads their worship has led...

    It was a bold statement, revolutionary even, surpassed only by the response of those in attendance, who, rather than pausing to reflect upon such an audacious assertion, wildly applauded. To be sure, these Obama enthusiasts would have ecstatically cheered anything he said at that moment. There was a full-fledged personality cult in motion at that time. The new president could have promised anything and received a giddy reaction. Obama himself admitted to serving as a kind of “blank screen” upon which Americans desiring some warm-and-fuzzy “hope and change” could project whatever they wanted. But even then, the words “fundamentally transform”...

    On their fourth consecutive night on the streets, Dallas' anti-Trump protesters took aim at a concrete target with their anger: Dallas' First Baptist Church. First Baptist's pastor, Robert Jeffress was square in the middle of Trump's victory party in New York City on Tuesday night. He earned the spot: He has been the president-elect's liaison to the evangelical community from virtually the start of the campaign. In October 2015, he led a group of pastors to Trump tower, laying hands on Trump and gleefully telling Fox News that "anybody that was in that meeting would've left there, first of all,...
