On today's edition of Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver took issue with the idea that Planned Parenthood is a women's health organization, asserting that it is nothing of the sort. In fact, said Staver, Planned Parenthood "is not interested in the health and well-being of women" but is really only interested in "their death agenda" and in "damaging the very core and foundation of who we are as Americans and a people of faith and values." Staver said that this nation needs to "erase this chapter of... MORE

Today, Tony Perkins and Tim Wildmon welcomed Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn onto their "AFA Today" radio program to discuss the open letter she recently wrote to President Obama expressing her outrage over the "offensive [and] repulsive" campaign ad featuring HBO's Lena Dunham.
Like Blackburn, both Wildmon and Perkins were deeply offended and disappointed by the ad, but were not shocked by it because what can you really expect from a party that "booed God." Perkins said the ad was just the latest example of the Democratic Party treating women as "sex... MORE

Recently Jerry Boykin, the Family Research Council's Executive Vice President, appeared on "The John Ankerberg Show" where the two spent most of the interview discussing Iran and Israel, but eventually turning to the upcoming election with Ankerberg asking Boykin why it was important for Christians to vote, which prompted Boykin to reply that he gets "angry and frustrated with Christians who don't vote" because it shows that they don't care about giving members of our military a "Commander in Chief that cares about them:"

In a new opinion piece, Lou Engle explains that that he has always had a strict principle that he will not vote "for anyone who by legal decree supports the shedding of innocent blood, believing such a vote would make me an accomplice to the act" and always "to reject the compromise of simply voting for the lesser of two evils, believing that my allegiance is given to a higher King and a higher kingdom, therefore my no-vote actually becomes a prophetic act, a vote of conscience, not abdication."
Engle's position also included "no exceptions for rape and... MORE

End Times author Joel Rosenberg on his blog this week linked Hurricane Sandy to God’s punishment of America for legal abortion. He writes that the hurricane is part of God’s plan to “get our attention and call us to repent of our sins and turn back to faith in Jesus Christ and back to reading and obeying the Bible,” noting that America is “far off track as a nation” thanks to its abortion policy, financial debt and pornography. Rosenberg previously told Pat Robertson that God is getting ready to “remove His hand or... MORE

Shortly after Mitt Romney met with Billy and Franklin Graham earlier this month, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association quietly removed Mormonism from the list of religious cults on the organization's website and then ran an ad in newspapers around the country urging Christians to "vote biblical values" in November.
Today, Franklin Graham explained that it was necessary for them to take this stand on behalf of Romney because "we believe this is one of the most important elections in our lifetime" and "this could be America’s last call to... MORE

As Hurricane Sandy was bearing down on the East Coast last night, Glenn Beck covered the story by interviewing a representative of the NRA so he could tell viewers that government officials are not allowed to confiscate their guns during a state of emergency ... and then talking about Libya.
After mocking New Yorkers who, instead of stockpiling food, watch "The Daily Show" and just expect the government to rescue them, Beck found a way to tie to incoming storm to what he believes is the Obama administration's cover-up of the attack in Benghazi, laying out his theory... MORE
