His active Christianity reflects a key aspect of our nations founding the importance of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
No deal at all is better than a bad deal. I think that is especially true with the recent deal with Iran that President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are touting.

In 1819, Jefferson spoke out against judicial activism, saying: "The Constitution is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please."
Mr Sanders Goes to Hollywood. And he got a good reception too. That is, super-liberal Bernie Sanders, Democrat from Vermont who believes in socialistic policies, has a message that apparently resonates with the limousine liberals in Tinseltown.

People seeking answers from psychics should know something: There is a God who knows the beginning from the end, and He has spoken.
It is so sad to read the news about the latest sex scandals involving prominent Christian leaders. I pray for them, and I pray for their victims. I also pray that more Christians would not be led into temptation, but delivered from evil.
I believe that America is kept safe by the military, which has had a spiritual shield held over it from before we were even a country---by the chaplains. But today chaplains are under enormous pressure to fully embrace political correctness.
