On January 6th 2004, Frank Pastore became the new afternoon drive-time host on KKLA 99.5 FM in Los Angeles. As a former professional baseball player with graduate degrees in both theology and political science, Frank integrates religion and politics with the news of the day in an entertaining and stimulating style at the intersection of faith and reason.
Frank pitched for the Cincinnati Reds from 1979 through 1985 before ending his eight-year major-league career with the Minnesota Twins in 1986. He graduated magna cum laude from National University in 1989 with a degree in business administration, then spent the next two years with the national leadership of Athletes in Action, the sports ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.
In 1994, Frank graduated summa cum laude from Talbot School of Theology at Biola University with a master's degree in philosophy of religion and ethics. In 2003, he completed his second masters degree, completing his graduate work in political philosophy and American government at Claremont Graduate School.
Frank and Gina have been married for 26 years, and live in Upland, Ca. with their two children, Frank and Christina.

I can say, along with millions of Americans, that Mike Huckabee has won our hearts. Now, he must close the deal and win our minds.
Millions of Christian conservatives have the same angst I do: we’re willing to vote for Mitt Romney for president, but unwilling to compromise our Christian faith in the process.
One says he is, but he shouldn’t be. Another says he is, but isn’t enough. Another says he’s always been, but wants to be more so. And, another says bluntly “Evangelicals are over-committed to the Bible.”
Radio host and columnist Frank Pastore interviews Tony Perkins, former Louisiana legislator and president of the Family Research Council.
I, a conservative Christian, am partly responsible for passing one of the most pro-gay agendas in American history.
In follow up to my column considering a Human Life Amendment, I spoke with perhaps the most knowledgeable and experienced pro-life attorney in the country, James Bopp, General Counsel with the National Right to Life.
Radio host and columnist Frank Pastore recently spoke with the founder of Focus on the Family Dr. James Dobson. The discussion centered on Dr. Dobson’s recent op-ed in The New York Times detailing why he will only vote for a pro-life, pro-family presidential candidate.
We in the pro-life movement have got a decision to make.
Quick! What’s the first image that jumps to mind when you hear the phrase “gay pride?” For millions of Americans it might be a rainbow sticker on a rear window, or perhaps an image of a smartly-dressed gay couple at a social event, or maybe the snapshot of a polite and funny gay character from a comedy show.
All this health care talk can sometimes get confusing.

There are some things you just gotta do yourself. Someone else can’t lose your weight, quit your addiction, parent your kids, or confess your sins.
I’m talking about the two discoveries that came out in August that should force all those “man evolved from apes” evolution charts in schoolbooks to be redrawn.
What Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago gave to Elvira Arellano and her son Saul for a whole year was not really “a sanctuary” but more accurately “a hideout.”
The ELCA and other pro-gay denominations have been ordaining gays for decades. That’s nothing new. What’s new is that now staff can openly have lovers while on the job and there will be no disciplinary action for violating the celibacy requirement.
Liberals are predictably doing everything they can to win in 2008. Everyone knows a key part of their strategy is to “get religion” and trick as many Christians as possible to care less about the Bible, abortion and gay marriage and more about liberal policy positions: secularism, socialism, bigger government and higher taxes.
Ahhh… The delicious irony of postmodern emergents asking me for evidence to support my arguments from last week’s “Why Al Qaeda Supports The Emergent Church”… when their relativistic worldview proclaims the futility of both evidence and argument.
A post-Christian, post-modern, secular-socialist America will be no match for a radical Islam fueled by petro-dollars and threatening the use of nuclear weapons.
Despite the wild popularity of their number one hit “Man Is Responsible for Global Warming,” I’m still not wowed by the music of Al Gore and his backup band, The Live Earth Hystericals. All their songs sound the same, and all their lyrics always reduce to the same one hook that’s also the title of their one hit song.
