David Limbaugh, CNS News

All he is saying is that Christians and people who share our Judeo-Christian values should support his candidacy because he will do everything in his power to promote these values — not theocratically, but lawfully and constitutionally.

You Can’t Say “Christmas” In Shakespeare’s English

Eliminating the word “Christmas” from the marketing of a concert of Christian festive or sacred music is an absurdity which annoys and insults Christians, whose music after all is being appropriated without regard for its sacred message.

There was and remains much about which to criticize Sudan’s government. However, U.S. sanctions have lost any purpose they once may have had. Most important for American Christians, the sanctions hurt believers already living and worshipping in difficult circumstances. The world has changed since sanctions were first imposed. Washington’s policy toward Sudan should change as well.

Michael W. Chapman, CNS News

By refusing to name the enemy – and the strict Islamic beliefs favored by millions of Muslims around the world are the enemy because they are inimical to liberty as we understand it and have enshrined it in our Constitution – Obama directly aids those Islamic supremacists who are right now today working to undermine Western civilization generally, and especially constitutional government here in America.

Even in the wake of American Peter Kassig's murder at the hands of radical Muslims, and ample evidence that their Muslim guests have ties to the terrorist organizations that help fund his killers, the leaders of Washington's National Cathedral continue to ignore the facts and excuse the folly of hosting the November 14 Muslim "prayer event."
