Accuse evangelist of promoting narrow form of Christianity supporting conservatism
For the second time during the presidential campaign, a group of African-American ministers in North Carolina has criticized Franklin Graham for challenging the spiritual beliefs of President Barack Obama, accusing the evangelist Monday of promoting a narrow form of Christianity that supports a politically conservative point of view.
"If we're not there to defend our freedom, then what's going to happen is groups like Freedom From Religion Foundation will speak for us," the attorney warns. "And you know what they want: They want to censor any Christian or religious viewpoint. So we've got to push back -- and more often than not, when we do, we win."
According to Staver, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation has been trying to suppress religious expression in public institutions and organizations for more than 30 years.

Lincoln, a figure still shrouded in some mystery – as iconic persons should be – was at times anti-religion, even anti-God. Yet a ghastly war and the deaths of two young sons forced him to consider unearthly realities.
It is against this backdrop that Mansfield opens “Lincoln’s Battle With God.” He includes a completely fascinating legend that is evidently something more than legend.

The discovery revived suspicions of poisoning.
Wow. It’s one week before Election Day, the re-election of Obama is unthinkable, and the election is extremely close – every vote counts.
Against this backdrop, I am still seeing lots of articles and blog postings from self-described conservatives, Christians, constitutionalists, independents and patriots fervently proclaiming they will not vote for either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, because they refuse to choose “the lesser of two evils.”
