By Allen West, CNSNews - It has been two weeks since my motorcycle crash on I-35, at the speed of 75 mph. I just cannot reiterate my sincere and humble gratitude for the outpouring of prayers... As you are reading this missive, I am undergoing surgery on my right shoulder socket to repair the fracture. It is a bit of a struggle to sit and prepare the missive, and I am experiencing neck pain. However, God’s grace has enabled me to survive and even get back into my running routine, back to four miles.
By Msgr. Charles Pope - Last week on the blog we discussed the rise of vocal, extreme secularism, as exemplified by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (here). Extreme secularism is not merely a worldly attitude devoid of God, it is a position that actively denies that faith, prayer, and/or religious expression play a role worthy of recognition. Militant secularists go further, seeking to remove any religious practice or mention of God from the public square.
By Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow - The Pro-Life Action League says there is a solution for the pro-life counselors who are reluctant to man the sidewalks outside abortion clinics out of concern of being arrested... The concern is not unfounded, as, for example, eight pro-life prayer warriors were arrested outside an abortion clinic in early April in Charlotte, North Carolina, even though they were following the law. But Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League does not think that should deter pro-lifers from doing what they can to save babies from abortion.
By Ken Blackwell, The Stream - As an African American who has held elected office at the state and local level, and served as the US Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Commission, I believe a full and frank discussion on issues of race and injustice is important... I also know too well that many places are far more dangerous for me as a black Christian man than the United States... The religious freedom executive order signed (by Pres. Trump) Tuesday addressed this reality: about a million Christians (mostly people of color) were killed for their faith in the past decade.
