Black Pastors Continue Opposition to Obama on Marriage
A coalition of African-American pastors and leaders are visiting states important to President Obama to voice their support for marriage, and let Obama know they still disagree with him on the issue. Most are Democrats, but are against the party’s endorsement of such unions. Bishop David Hall of Temple Church of God in Christ in Memphis says there is a strong Christian principle at stake. “We believe that if we move out and publicly state our dissatisfaction with the president’s support of those things that it will truly awaken the black electorate and those Christian persons in the black community who have for so long supported family and its maintenance,” he says. Hall stresses it is not the focus of The Coalition of African-American Pastors to convince people not to vote for the President, but rather to ratchet up support for traditional values.
New Movie Takes on Teachers’ Unions
I have said for years that no organization in America has more successfully opposed a Christian worldview and America’s founding principles than the teachers’ unions, and it’s way past time we took them on. A new movie distributed by Walden Media, the company know for The Chronicles of Narnia films, is doing just that. And that has all the right people offended.
The Importance of Presidential Debates
Many analysts, myself included, believe next week’s first presidential debate could be the climactic moment of the 2012 presidential campaign. But are we putting to much emphasis on the singular event? The answer is yes and no, according to pollster extraordinaire Scott Rasmussen.
