Today, the National Center for Health Statistics of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that use of the "morning-after pill" (Plan B) to counteract pregnancy has increased rapidly among teens since being sold in stores over the counter like candy. The warning label on this drug indicates that pregnancy may be precluded by preventing implantation of a fertilized egg, thus causing an abortion that is typically invisible to the mother.
Despite a fierce assault by the establishment and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the latest polls show former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore with a significant lead in the high-profile race to become Alabama's next U.S. senator. As the establishment attacks escalate, a coalition of conservative heavyweights across Alabama and America are throwing their weight behind Moore, who became a hero to many Christians and constitutionalists over his years in public service. In an interview, the judge explained why the D.C. establishment wants to stop him — and why the people of Alabama support him. Moore also outlined his views on the U.S. Constitution, and how Congress can force the federal courts to obey it using powerful constitutional tools.
Editor's Note: Of course he did because Donald Trump doesn't have a clue about real Christianity or righteousness. He has surrounded himself with religious fools and this is the evidence that one's theology (or lack of) really does matter in the political realm. I dissented in the 2016 Presidential election and will continue to do so until we actually get a righteous, moral, godly, Christian candidate. - AW
WASHINGTON — As Tuesday marks primary day in Alabama’s special election to fill the seat vacated by former U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, President Trump has endorsed Sen. Luther Strange for U.S. Senate over “Ten Commandments Judge” Roy Moore.

Jasha McQueen had, with her husband, gone through the IVF process to create four embryos in order to have children. They signed a contract with 2 different cryobanks, outlining specific details in which custody of the embryos would fall in case of divorce or separation, and now she is fighting for the life of these two embryos in a Missouri Court of Appeals.
Two of the embryos were brought to term and Jasha gave birth to twin boys eight years ago. She filed for divorce prior to 2010 when she suffered abuse during the marriage and at that time her ex husband decided he no longer wanted to have children and to terminate the remaining two embryos. ...
Let me say that our hearts are broken over the events that took place in our own back yard in Virginia yesterday. Nazi flags and people with KKK hats walking around on a college campus in broad daylight is insane. You’d think that if you affiliate with those groups you’d want to keep it a secret, and yet it was done for the world to see. Our hearts break over racism and terrorism and our only hope and solution is the Gospel, that, believe it or not, can break even the most wicked of hearts and give even the most prideful and hate-filled man new life.
There are so many vantage points when an event like this occurs. The shock of such an event will produce a lot of questions and a lot of discussion over the next few months. Many people will be tempted to speak off the cuff, and many others will be tempted to harbor resentment and to expect their brothers and sisters in Christ to react in a particular way. There are certain truths, though,…
Twenty-eight years ago, the Lord moved me to Southern California as an answer to my cry for help.
My faithful and merciful Father God had graciously and mercifully endured, preserved, and persevered me through 13 years of severe and brutal persecution. But because I did not heed His exhortation and admonition in Deuteronomy 8:11-20, I forgot that it was by His mighty hand that I received relief from my enemies. Much like the Israelites whom the LORD kindly saved and freed from the bondage of Egypt, I fancied that this reprieve was due to something good I had done—and for three years, I entertained the fallacy, that I deserved every good I received from the Lord. I behaved as if God owed me for my obedience, rather than remember that even my obedience was a gift from Him, through Jesus Christ; who through His death and resurrection, freed and enabled me to do what I could never do on my own—please and honor the one and only, holy and righ…
