    An Open Letter to Independent Baptist Pastors in the Indiana 9th Congressional District. February 3, 2016 (Revised) Our Christian Daughters Potentially Subject to Selective Service Registration Dear Pastors: At some point you will have to develop a genuine conviction from the Scriptures on issues related to (1) Christian women serving in the Armed Forces; (2) Christian women serving in combat roles; (3) Christian women being required by federal law to register for Selective Service (register for the draft). American women have pushed their “rights” to serve in military functions alongside men, including in combat roles, to the point that now...

    On Super Bowl Sunday, proud adoptive mom Leigh Anne Tuohy will watch her son play football for the second time in the biggest American sports game of the year. Tuohy’s son Michael Oher is the offensive lineman for the Carolina Panthers and formerly the Baltimore Ravens, who he helped to achieve victory in the 2013 Super Bowl. Oher’s life had a troubled beginning. When Oher was born, his mother was addicted to drugs and his father was in prison. He struggled in school, moved through homes in foster care and spent time homeless until he met Leigh Anne and her...

    Is there some kind of symbolism we're missing about Obama going first to the Islamic Society of Baltimore Mosque yesterday, then today to the National Prayer Breakfast? There are two names that no one will ever hear from the lips of President Barack Obama. The name of Jesus Christ is one, Islamic terrorism the other. Yet, the same man who demanded that Georgetown cover all symbols of Christ—including his Blessed Name, the tiny IHS that would have appeared directly over his head on the podium where he would be giving a speech—got to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast in...

    For the first time during his seven years in office, President Obama visited a mosque on Wednesday to share a message of 'religious tolerance and unity.' "We're one American family, and when any part of our family starts to feel second class or separate or targeted, it tears at the very fabric of our nation," the president said. Muslims, he continued, are "some of the most resilient and patriotic Americans you'll ever meet." He even spoke about how "Islam has always been part of America." "Islam has always been part of America," he said, detailing the beginnings of the...

Scores of charred corpses and bodies with bullet wounds littered the streets from Saturday night's attack on Dalori village and two nearby camps housing 25,000 refugees, according to survivors and soldiers at the scene just 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram and the biggest city in Nigeria's northeast.

Over the past week, another 24 Syrian refugees have been admitted, including one male Orthodox Christian. The religious breakdown of the 550 is 534 Sunni Muslims, three Shi'ites, ten others identified in State Department Refugee Processing Center data as simply "Moslems," one Orthodox Christian, one Greek Orthodox Christian, and one refugee identified as "other religion." The two Christians are both male, as...

    On the same day that Donald Trump earned the endorsement of evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr., Jeb Bush expressed doubt over whether Donald Trump is a Christian, remarking that the Manhattan businessman merely views faith as another political tool. Asked by reporters in Nevada on Tuesday whether he believed Trump to be a Christian, Bush said he does not. "No, I don't know what he is," the former governor of Florida said, according to video posted by ABC News.

    Lou Holtz once said, "Don't tell your problems to people: eighty percent don't care; and the other twenty percent are glad you have them." Unfortunately, Lou Holtz is a man out-of-step with our whiny age. Today, people will not shut up about their problems. They want to let you know about every issue they have, every "microaggression" and every time they're offended. It's a bottomless sea of discontent. Worse yet, our generation of complainers never seems to blame themselves for their own problems. Instead they've picked out a group of designated fall guys that it's always okay to blame for...

    Christian persecution is at an historic high thanks to global rise of religious fundamentalism, most notably by radical Islam, Christian charity Open Doors has found. Persecution has seen the biggest rise in countries such as Pakistan and Eritrea where radical Islam is on the rise, but North Korea still tops the list with its systematic oppression of Christians. More than 100 million Christians are being persecuted globally, according to the 2016 Open Doors World Watch List, and more than 80 percent of that persecution is down to religious fundamentalism of some kind.

Although the California-based ministry, which works in over 60 countries, stated last January that 2014 was the worst year for Christian persecution than any other time in modern history, the organization said during the rollout of its 2016 World Watch List that 2015 surpassed 2014 as the deadliest year for Christians worldwide.

The professor, Terri Susan Fine, argued in an editorial published in UCF Today that "we show cultural insensitivity both by equating one major holiday with a minor holiday and failing to recognize that diversity includes those who celebrate neither holiday." When you say "merry Christmas" or "happy Chanukah," you're not being "inclusive" enough, according to Fine.

    Were you aware that Christian parents are in the grip of fear over Islamic indoctrination in public schools? Neither was I, and I live at ground zero of a raging controversy over the manner in which public schools teach Islam, Christianity, and other world religions. My home county, Maury County, Tenn., made headlines when parents objected to an assignment, to middle-school kids, to write the shahada, the Islamic declaration of faith. Other parents objected to apparent bias in the curriculum, noting that instruction about Christianity was both delayed and skewed, with an emphasis on Christians persecuting other Christians and...

Graham has previously said he has no faith in any political party, but his apparent renunciation of his Republican affiliation is an indication of anger on the right and the strong interest many disaffected evangelicals have shown in populist outsiders such as Donald Trump. Graham himself has expressed admiration for Trump, the surprise front-runner in the Republican...

    Their M.O. is a tried and terrifying one: Launch a raid, single out Christians, and then spray them with bullets. But when Al-Shabaab militants ambushed a bus Monday, things didn't go according to plan. A group of Kenyan Muslims shielded the Christian passengers and told the attackers they were prepared to die together. The Muslim passengers, who were mostly women, told the Islamic militants to kill them all or leave them alone, witnesses said. The bus was headed to the city of Mandera, near the border with Somalia and Ethiopia. The journey is such a security risk that most buses...

    It is true that the three primary monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all believe in an eternal, uncreated Creator God to whom all human beings must one day give account. But it is self-evident that Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God. First, God is the heavenly Father of Christians, but Allah is not the Father of Muslims. This is one of the most fundamental revelations of the Bible, which is why Jesus taught His followers to pray the "Our Father" prayer on a daily basis (Matthew 6:9-13). The New Testament even goes as far as saying...

    Yesterday the Internet exploded with the news that Wheaton College in Illinois -- known as the "Harvard of Evangelical colleges" -- had suspended professor Larycia Hawkins for wearing a headscarf as a gesture of "embodied solidarity" with Muslims. These stories weren't true. The professor wasn't suspended for wearing a headscarf but for publicly declaring that Christians and Muslims "worship the same God." In its statement, Wheaton explained: The freedom to wear a head scarf as a gesture of care and compassion for individuals in Muslim or other religious communities that may face discrimination or persecution is afforded to Dr....

    Acceptance of homosexuality is rising across the broad spectrum of American Christianity, including among members of churches that strongly oppose homosexual relationships as sinful, according to an extensive Pew Research Center survey of U.S. religious beliefs and practices.

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. When Ted Turner was running CNN back in 1991, he banned the use of the word "foreign" on air. In a memo to employees, he made a threat to fine employees with a forced donation to UNICEF. To avoid offense, they were told they should use the word "international" instead because it "promotes a sense of unity." Today, this is Jeff Zucker's CNN, and unity be damned. Offending the audience is part of the ratings gambit. On Dec. 13, as many Christians celebrated the third Sunday of Advent and rejoiced over...

    In the pew on Sunday, in the abortion clinic on Monday. This is what a new national survey commissioned by Care Net and conducted by LifeWay Research found about abortion, women, and the church. The survey found that nearly 4 in 10 women who have had abortions were attending church regularly at the time of their abortion. As a Christian, I believe this is a sad “what.” But it is critical that we understand the “why” so that we can move toward a solution to this troubling reality. Since Roe v. Wade was decided 42 years ago, three things have...

    Obama Meeting With Islamic Leaders to Discuss "Hateful Talk" Against Muslims, Still Hasn't met With San Bernardino Families President Obama, in yet another attempt to pander to the Islamic community in hopes of dragging them into the Democratic Party, has agreed to meet with Islamic leaders to discuss "hateful talk" and discrimination against Muslims. What's truly disgusting about this is how the president hasn't personally met with victims' families from the San Bernardino attack, who are dead because a Muslim terrorist decided to go beyond "hateful talk" and end the lives of 14 innocent individuals. Apparently these folks don't matter...

    When the media reported that Ted Cruz wanted to only admit Syrian Christian refugees into the United States, the junior senator from the Lone Star state found himself once again in the midst of a Texas-size media tornado. It turns out that a case can be made for giving Syrian Christians, if not preferential treatment, then at least more consideration than they now get. "There are two percent of refugees from Syria who are Christian but 10 percent of the population of Syria is Christian," Georgetown professor Timothy Samuel Shah pointed out in a forum at the Heritage Foundation on...

    Three truck bombs killed up to 60 people and injured more than 80 in the town of Tell Tamer in Syria's northeastern Al Hasakah province on Thursday, a spokesman for the Syrian Kurdish YPG has told Reuters. The blasts struck near a Kurdish militia forces field hospital and in the crowded Souk Al Jumla market square, where the majority of the fatalities occurred. Most of the affected people were civilians, but there were some Kurdish and Assyrian self-defense fighters among them. The vehicles were allegedly packed with large amounts of explosives, which also caused significant damage to nearby buildings and...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Santa Claus says it's OK to skip church this Christmas, according to a series of billboards paid for by American Atheists. The billboards have been set up in Colorado Springs and in Raleigh, North Carolina. In Colorado Springs, there's one located near Fountain at Exit 128 and another near a Stratmoor Hills neighborhood. "We want people to know that going to church has absolutely nothing to do with being a good person, " said David Silverman, president of American Atheists. "The things that are most important during the holiday season—spending time with loved ones, charity, and...

    Speaking at a meeting discussing religious persecution held by the Open Doors organization in Brussels on December 2, European Parliament President Martin Schulz said that "Christians are not safe" on the European continent. During his talk, Schulz said that the persecution of Christians is "undervalued" and does not receive enough attention and, consequentially, it "hasn't been properly addressed." Schulz continued, 'It should shake us up that on our continent, Christians are not safe."
