    This country is facing an election where neither of the candidates is admired much. There is a strong demarcation of the values of the two sides, although it is not evident in the media. Wikileaks has been putting out various e mails that were hacked, with the Democrats declaring it a Russian plot to get Donald Trump elected. Like most of the talking points that the progressive socialists they are mostly lies. In socialist countries, the media, controlled by the government decides what information the public receives. In our country it is the major media in collusion with the government...

    Muslim children throughout Pakistan are being indoctrinated with hatred for Christians, a senior Church leader has warned. A rare insight into how the anti-Christian persecutors of tomorrow are being created in Pakistan was provided this week by the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Lahore, Archbishop Sebastian Shaw. "A huge problem we face in Pakistan – one that is deeply divisive across many sections of society – is hate material in school text books," he said. "For example, in class one, five-year-olds are given a lesson in which they are told: 'Who am I? I am a Muslim and the other people...

    NORTH LITTLE ROCK,Ark.--The mother of an 18-year-old murder victim says she forgives the man accused of killing her daughter. The shooting rattled a North Little Rock neighborhood earlier this week; many called it an act of domestic violence. The mother of the victim says this is not the first time she has dealt with the murder of a loved one. She says she is relying on family and her faith after seeing her brother, her husband and now her daughter murdered in the last few years. Family pictures lined the table inside the home of an 18-year-old whose life was...

    There are many good conservatives who are Never-Trumpers, and there are many good conservatives who will vote for Donald Trump. Eight months ago, I warned that conservatives must resist gratuitous hatred or they will destroy themselves more effectively than the left ever could on its own. I used the term "gratuitous hatred" because it is the term Jews and Judaism use to describe the reason for one of the greatest calamities of Jewish history: the destruction of the Second Temple and the second Jewish state. It wasn't the Romans who Jewish tradition blames; it was the Jews themselves -- for...

    A Bible was removed from the waiting room of a Chillicothe Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Athens, Ohio after a veteran complained. “Our government is secular, and must remain secular,” the unidentified veteran wrote. Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, fired off a letter to the medical center on behalf of the veteran – alleging that the presence of the Bible inside a government facility is a violation of the U.S. Constitution. Weinstein, a fussy little man with a strong aversion to our Lord, said the Bible’s placement in the waiting room was “illicit and...

Only participants who called the Bible their highest authority, said personal evangelism is important, and indicated that trusting in Jesus’ death on the cross is the only way of salvation, were labeled “evangelical.” They totaled 586 survey-takers. Everyone expected them to perform better than most Americans. No one expected them to perform worse. Seven in ten evangelicals—more than the population at large—said that Jesus was the first being God created. Fifty-six percent...

    WHEATON - While evangelist Billy Graham's son Franklin Graham stands solidly behind the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, students at the elder Graham's alma mater Wheaton College are evidently not in agreement. "Donald Trump is the 'Anti-Chrit'", a misspelled chalking said on the steps of the evangelical school's Billy Graham Center.

    You have to wonder, what is it about Donald Trump that frightens liberals, media, academia and the establishment class in politics? Those who see Donald as a hateful, unstable, shallow, boisterous billionaire need to consider whether they are responding to the man and what he actually says or reacting to the man's caricature. Barack Obama deliberately ran as a blank canvas. Trump is the opposite. He is in some strange way a mirror that reflects whatever you are. Some people "get" him and others don't—and those who "don't" never will. The real spirit of this conflict is laid bare if...

    The archbishop of Denver has warned Catholics against voting for the Democratic party in the coming elections due to its support for abortion. In his article titled "Voting as a Catholic in 2016," Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila noted that both presidential candidates from the Republican and Democratic party were disliked by many voters. He stated that he also has the same aversion for both candidates but he suggested that people should look at the party's platforms instead. Aquila pointed out that the Democratic party has been aggressively campaigning in favor of abortion. He added that the party wants to appoint...

In a moment, I’ll explain exactly why I say that InterVarsity has tried to straddle the fence when it comes to homosexuality, but first, here’s the relevant background.Last week, InterVarsity announced “that it will begin dismissing employees who disagree with its theological stance on human sexuality starting on November 11.” As reported on The Atlantic, “Rather than...

    MEXICO CITY — Conservatives from all corners of the country converged on Mexico City on a recent Saturday for the National March for the Family, which took aim at the president’s plans to enshrine same-sex marriage in the constitution. The LGBT community and its allies launched a counterprotest, waving rainbow flags and carrying pictures of former presidents Benito Juárez and Plutarco Elías Calles — lionized as heroes of the secular state, figures who curbed Catholic Church privileges in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These contradictory images symbolize a growing conflict in this nation, where the church has been relegated...

    One of the largest evangelical college ministries in the U.S. has asked any staff members who support same-sex relationships to quit, a move critics call a purge and supporter laud as an affirmation of true Christianity. InterVarsity Christian Fellowship informed all staff about the policy over the summer after issuing a position paper based on their three years of study of sexuality that concluded sex should be reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. The organization’s leaders said employees are expected to “believe and behave” in accord with InterVarsity’s stand on sexuality, including not engaging in immoral sexual...

    Here’s a poll number about presidential politics that may shock you: About half of self-identified Christians of voting age did not cast a ballot in the election of 2012, according to the Barna Group. That’s 40 to 50 million men and women who probably say they love America but still failed to exercise the simplest and most basic form of citizenship. Pundits and pollsters are predicting similar electoral apathy on Nov. 8 – perhaps in even greater numbers. Personally, I’ve never seen such apathy among Christians for the two major party presidential candidates. Christians who stay on the sidelines usually...

Evangelicals who opposed him before still aren’t fans. And the ones in his camp aren’t phased by the recording. That’s because this isn’t about how much they like the brash billionaire; it’s about how unflinching they are in their opposition to Hillary Clinton. “People of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defund Planned Parenthood, defend religious liberty and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” said...

But the historian, who has published several books on the Holocaust, argues that textbooks’ sanitization of Muslim conquests and their presentation of an Islamic supremacist version of history is completely unhelpful.

Within that cultural framework, I meekly submit that I do not pledge allegiance to the American flag because I am a Christian. I pray that instead of adding to the division, my reason(s) why I do not will encourage fellow Believers as well as prompt unbelievers to research what it means to be a Christian.

She made the public comments just three days after the assault on the compound that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

This is not what a casual consumer of Egyptian news would expect, and it is not what the Copts expected, either. Nordland writes of high hopes for protection after the Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohammed Morsi was topped by the current Egyptian president, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is often given solid marks by foreign observers for his stance against Islamist oppression.

    Ethicist David Gushee’s evolve-or-else warning to religious conservatives about their inevitable clash of orthodoxies with progressives is a sober reminder of the question over what variety of liberalism they will face in the days ahead. Will a reflexively intolerant progressivism prevail, or is it possible that goodwill, liberal pluralism can frame what happens in American public life as homosexuality and transgenderism become mainstreamed? Like The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, who has been an online hero documenting the pace of cultural change around American sexual mores, I am pessimistic at the prospect that liberal pluralism will win the day.

    The Surprising Reason Why More Americans Are Not Going To ChurchThe standard narrative of American religious decline goes something like this: A few hundred years ago, European and American intellectuals began doubting the validity of God as an explanatory mechanism for natural life.
