    American pastor Andrew Brunson, behind bars in Turkey on terrorism-related charges, risks up to 35 years in jail in a politically loaded case that critics describe as “an eclipse of reason.” (held in Turkey since October 2016 on terror-related charges, he is seen in an undated picture.) A Turkish prosecutor is seeking up to 35 years in jail for Andrew Brunson, the American pastor at the heart of a bitter diplomatic spat between Ankara and Washington. Held on terror-related charges since October 2016, Brunson has seemingly become a bargaining chip, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggesting last year that...

  • Billy Graham: Pastor to Presidents

    02/21/2018 7:08:30 AM PST · by oxcart · 35 replies
    Billy Graham has often said, “Whether the story of Christ is told in a huge stadium, across the desk of a powerful leader, or shared with a golfing companion, it satisfies a common hunger. All over the world, whenever I meet people face-to-face, I am made aware of this personal need among the famous and successful, as well as the lonely and obscure.” Every U.S. President since World War II has met with Billy Graham. Both Johnson and Nixon, the two who probably sought him the most, offered him high positions in government — which he quickly and politely refused....

    A Pennsylvania pastor who was caught sitting in a parked car with a bound and naked man insists he was simply counseling the man.

When officers inquired about the situation, Gregory allegedly told them he and the man “were just playing” and that they “meet up from time to time to play with...

    HOMESTEAD (KDKA) — A Homestead-area pastor is being accused of open lewdness and indecent exposure, but he says what police say happened is not what really happened.

According to a criminal complaint, when the officers arrived on the scene, they could see two men inside the vehicle. Police say one man — identified as 61-year-old George Nelson Gregory, of Munhall — was in the back seat, and the other man was completely naked and...

    A posh Los Angeles fitness center kicked a black pastor out and banned him for life because, the pastor says, a white employee overheard him expressing support for President Donald Trump. The employee allegedly charged at the pastor, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, in a physically threatening manner — coming within inches of his face — and yelled “You support Donald Trump!” Peterson, 68, is now asking for an apology and seeking civil rights damages. The incident occurred on August 11 at Equinox Sports Club Los Angeles. The pastor’s no-good, very bad day began while he was discussing racial issues and...

    So what do you do if you are an abortion advocate who lost two presidential elections in a row? For Hillary Clinton it is considering becoming a Methodist pastor. The news that Clinton would consider becoming a pastor in the United Methodist Church is not surprising given that the Methodist Church supported abortion for years until recently and still has a large contingent of pastors and other church leaders who strongly support abortion. Here’s more: According to The Atlantic, Clinton told her longtime pastor Bill Shillady, at a recent photo shoot for his new book, that she wants to preach...

    You just can't make this stuff up. President Trump and his supporters have been targeted non stop by progressives and the mainstream media since he assumed office, but this may take the cake. Last week, a group of religious leaders were invited to the Oval Office to meet with the president. They took the opportunity, as religious leaders do, to pray for our commander in chief.Johnnie Moore, founder and CEO of The Kairos Company, a public relations firm that works with several ministries, captured the moment. Such an honor to pray within the Oval Office for @POTUS & @VP ....
