    A defamation lawsuit brought against CNN by President Donald Trump’s campaign will not move forward, a federal judge in Georgia ruled Thursday, part of a raft of libel accusations the campaign waged against media outlets over the last year. Trump’s campaign filed the lawsuit in federal court in March, seeking damages for a 2019 opinion piece on CNN’s website that it called false and libelous. Judge Michael Brown dismissed the legal challenge on Thursday, arguing the campaign could not demonstrate that CNN published any inaccurate information intentionally or with reckless disregard for the truth, a high standard known as “actual...

    CNN is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign which accused CNN of making false and defamatory statements. In March, the Trump campaign sued CNN in federal court in Atlanta, charging that Atlanta-based CNN, which is owned by AT&T Inc.'s WarnerMedia, published the statement that the campaign "assessed the potential risks and benefits of again seeking Russia's help in 2020 and has decided to leave that option on the table," and that "CNN was well aware that these statements were not true..." (Read the complaint here.) The Trump campaign in February sued The New...
  • Are There Really Verses in the Bible that Support Abortion?

    Many of us know the biblical case against abortion. But are there other verses that bring a different perspective on abortion? On the pro-life side, we note that Rebekah was told that two nations were in her womb, pointing to the personhood and potential of her unborn children (Genesis 25:21-23; see also Jeremiah 1:4-5). Similarly, John the Baptizer leapt in his mother’s womb when Miriam (Mary) arrived, with the baby Jesus in her womb (Luke 1:39-43; see also 1:15, where John would be filled with the Spirit even from his mother’s womb). And verses like Psalm 139:13-16 speak of how...

    Last week, a controversial conference was held in St. Louis with the goal of, “Supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex-attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.” It was called Revoice 2018, and it has created a stir among conservative Christians. On the one hand, the conference founder, Nate Collins, has made clear that, “We all believe that the Bible teaches a traditional, historic understanding of sexuality in marriage, and so we are not attempting in any way to redefine any of those doctrines. We’re trying to live...
  • Creating a New Version of Leviticus to Support Gay Sex

    What do you do when the biblical text is against your position, explicitly so? What do you do when not one single verse supports your viewpoint? It’s simple. You create new verses out of thin air. You rewrite the Bible to your liking. That’s exactly what biblical scholar Idan Dershowitz has done. In his New York Times op-ed piece, Dr. Dershowitz summarizes his 2017 academic article published in the journal Hebrew Bible and Ancient Israel. (Is it any surprise that the Times decided to publish his piece?) Dr. Dershowitz claims that, “Before Leviticus was composed, outright prohibitions against homosexual sex...

    Senator Booker, pursuant to your questioning of Secretary of State candidate Mike Pompeo, I’d like to ask you some forthright questions. I understand you might never read this article. Or, if you do read it, you might choose not to respond. At the least, though, we can put these questions on public record. When interviewing Secretary of State candidate Mike Pompeo, you asked him about his views on same-sex “marriage,” which he had previously opposed. I very much appreciate the fact that Mr. Pompeo did not back down on his conviction that marriage is reserved for members of the opposite...

    In 2016, same-sex “marriage” was legalized in Colombia. One year later, the courts have now recognized a polyamorous “family” of three men. And there is no slippery slope. As reported by the Daily Mail: Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights. “We wanted to validate our household … and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” said one of the men,...

  • For Richard Dawkins Muslim-Bashing is Different Than Christian-Bashing

    Professor Richard Dawkins, known as the world’s most famous atheist, has risen to rock star status for his attacks on God and religion, in particular, his attacks on the God of the Bible. But when he recently criticized Muslims, he was in for a surprise. Before looking at Dawkins’ rather mild criticism of Muslims, let’s remember the depth of his vitriol against Christians and the Bible, most of which has only enhanced Dawkins’ reputation. In an April interview aired on the Qatar-based TV network Al Jazeera, Dawkins railed on the Catholic Church, saying that, as “Horrible as sexual abuse no...
  • Why are we surprised with the push for ‘pedophile rights’?

    August 31, 2011 ( - Many Americans have been shocked by reports about a recent pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore in which psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, representing institutions like Harvard and Johns Hopkins, sought to present pedophilia in a sympathetic and even positive light. But why should this surprise us? Academic articles in scholarly journals have been presenting pedophilia in a sympathetic light for years, and, as Matthew Cullinan Hoffman noted, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released a report in 1998 “claiming that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of...
