    Judge Roy Moore, the Republican Party's candidate for Senate in Alabama, has gone on the attack against the latest woman (Beverly Young Nelson) alleging sexual assaults and her lawyer Gloria Allred. In front of dozens of news cameras, Moore explained: "Thank ya’ll for being here tonight. Thank you to all the people that have came out at this late hour and for being here. I want to address what’s been brought out on television today by Gloria Allred and a client she has about things I allegedly did. I want to make it perfectly clear, the people of Alabama know...

    There are some Bible stories that really stick with you. Here’s one that’s challenged me my entire life. Centuries before the birth of Christ, the tiny and vulnerable kingdom of Judah faced an existential threat from the Assyrian empire. The prophet Isaiah’s message to the Judean king, Hezekiah, was clear: Trust God for your salvation. He alone can and will protect his people. The demand for trust was so absolute that Isaiah unequivocally condemned any quest for a military alliance for protection. His words echo through the ages: Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and...

    Nearly 40 percent of Alabama evangelicals said in a new poll that they are more likely to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore following allegations of sexual misconduct against him. A JMC analytics poll found that 37 percent of evangelicals surveyed said the allegations make them more likely to vote for the GOP Senate candidate in the upcoming election. Just 28 percent said the allegations made them less likely to vote for Moore and 34 percent said the allegations made no difference in their decision. In all, 29 percent of respondents in the poll said the allegations against Moore...

    After the Washington Post reported Thursday that Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama had allegedly tried to initiate sex with a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old county prosecutor, national Republicans quickly distanced themselves. The National Republican Senatorial Committee severed fundraising ties with Moore’s campaign. More than a dozen of Moore’s would-be Republican colleagues so far have questioned whether he is fit to be in the Senate, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Even Alabama’s senior senator, Richard Shelby, called on Moore to step aside from the December 12 special election if the charges are true. President Donald Trump also...

    Do you oppose the liberal agenda on health care, the living wage, voter ID laws, gay rights, and gun control? If so, you are guilty of supporting “non-Christian” policies. That was the view expressed by William Barber on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today. But Barber, a liberal pastor from North Carolina, took things an ugly step further. Suggesting that they had failed to address poverty, including child poverty, Barber accused conservative Christians of “policy pedophilia.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Evangelicals in Spain are fighting hard against an LGBT bill that is set to be voted on in Congress, and if passed could strip parents of their rights to stop their children from undergoing hormone treatment and sex change surgeries.Evangelical Focus reported on Monday that the Spanish Evangelical Alliance has been holding meetings with a number of political parties since September, expressing their concerns that new LGBT measures will crack down on freedom of speech and the rights of parents.The Spanish Evangelical Alliance has said that as it is written, the bill "accepts, as gender ideology proposes, that gender is a human...

    The national GOP’s director of evangelical outreach is quitting, and lodging complaints about what he calls the party’s “tone deaf attitude” toward a crucial Republican voting bloc. Chad Connelly, who served as the Republican National Committee’s director of faith engagement for the last four years, announced his resignation in an email circulated to close friends late Thursday. He complained that religious outreach has not been prioritized at the RNC under the leadership structure implemented by President Donald Trump’s White House. “The treatment I received from the new political department has been disrespectful, antagonistic and unacceptable,” Connelly wrote in an email...

    Megachurch pastor and Donald Trump's spiritual advisor Robert Jeffress has fired back at Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska after he seemingly accused the pastor of politicizing Sunday worship by inviting conservative, pro-Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity to speak at First Baptist Dallas this Sunday. Sasse posted his disapproval of Hannity being invited to speak at the 12,000-member megachurch during service this Sunday in a series of tweets on Saturday. In the first tweet, the senator asked: "Christians: Are we really this ignorant of the Scriptures?" He cited John 18:36: "Jesus answered, 'My Kingdom is not of this world.'"...

    Ken Stern, the former CEO of National Public Radio, spent a year venturing "out from my overwhelmingly Democratic neighborhood" by meeting Republicans and attending evangelical church services, which led him to his discovery of "an America far different from the one depicted in the press." "This may seem like an unusual admission from someone who once ran NPR, but it is borne of recent experience," wrote Stern, now president of Palisades Media Ventures, in an article published in New York Post. "When you are liberal, and everyone else around you is as well, it is easy to fall into groupthink...

    Nearly a year ago, conservative Christians gambled on Donald Trump, a thrice-married Manhattan billionaire who bragged about sexual assault, ran casinos and used to support a woman’s right to abortion. The bet paid off. This weekend, Trump became the first sitting president to address the Values Voters Summit, a yearly Washington symposium that brings together social conservative leaders and voters seeking “to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life and limited government that make our nation strong”. He duly touted his administration’s progress in “returning moral clarity to our view of the world”. “How times...

    The Never-Trumpers of every stripe still don’t get it. Ten months after his historic defeat of Hillary Clinton, those opposed to Donald Trump—whether from the political right, left, or middle—have yet to grasp why so many Americans—especially evangelical Americans—have embraced, or at least tolerate, the politics of the Man from Manhattan. As my wife (and chief editor) pointed out when I began this piece, “It’s really a no-brainer. There was no other option.” But nevertheless, to those dulled by their disdain for Mr. Trump, let me explain again our continued support for him. First, let me make this abundantly clear:...

    A high-profile Vatican adviser responded to a recent Evangelical statement affirming marriage between “one man and one woman” with his own statement affirming "LGBT people."   Rev. James Martin, a Catholic priest, author, and adviser to the Vatican on communications, tweeted a seven-point list of pro-homosexual affirmations in response to the Evangelical’s “Nashville Statement” that defended marriage between a man and woman. Martin’s series of tweets were picked up by The Washington Post and published as a “counter-list” in an August 30 article titled “Seven simple ways to respond to the Nashville Statement on sexuality.” In his list affirming “LGBT people,”...

    The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) released The Nashville Statement, signed by evangelicals and pastors throughout the country. The statement affirms that marriage is between one man and one woman and that the approval of same-sex relationships is sinful. The message comes at a time when some in the evangelical community have revised their views on human sexuality. “Our true identity, as male and female persons, is given by God. It is not only foolish, but hopeless, to try to make ourselves what God did not create us to be,” the statement reads. Article 10 of the statement...

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a statement issued by evangelical leaders August 29: The Catholic League has a long history of mutual cooperation with evangelical Christians on a host of cultural issues. In that spirit, we condemn the unfair attacks against the statement on marriage, family and sexuality that was signed by more than 150 evangelical leaders following their conference in Nashville last week. “Hateful,” “homophobic,” “anti-LGBT” are among the hysterical condemnations of the statement flying around print, broadcast and social media. But the statement is none of those things. While restating long-held Christian teaching that marriage is...

    August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One of the authors of a widely-criticized essay that accused conservative Catholics and Evangelicals in the U.S. of instigating an “ecumenism of hate” is doubling down on his claims. Speaking with The Tablet earlier this week, Marcelo Figueroa said he was happy to see the “necessary” debate that resulted from an article he and papal confidant Fr. Antonio Spadaro S.J. published July 13 in La Civiltŕ Cattolica, a Jesuit-run journal overseen by the Vatican. In their essay, Figueroa and Spadaro decried what they called the “problematic fusion between … faith and politics” found in America....

    Donald Trump was forced to disband two business advisory councils and an infrastructure panel after some of America’s most prominent business leaders fled their posts, protesting against Trump’s statements appeasing white nationalist marchers at the weekend rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. But the president’s religious evangelical advisory board, a mix of radical born-again preachers, televangelists and conservative political influencers, still stands pristine. Not only have members avoided criticism of the president, while occasionally scolding the violence in general – some have been openly supportive of Trump’s statements assigning blame “on many sides” and slamming those who turned up to oppose the...
