The Pew Forum has an interesting breakdown of the religious affiliations of US Presidents, (image below).

Surprise, surprise.  Rick Warren's church gets protested...

Gay rights supporters marched outside the church of evangelical pastor Rick Warren, protesting his selection as an inauguration speaker.

About 100 protesters waved rainbow flags Sunday and voiced their displeasure at Warren for his opposition to gay marriage and at President-elect Barack Obama for choosing him to give the invocation at Tuesday's ceremony.

John Einsohn, one of the protest's organizers, tells the Orange County Register that Warren "preaches intolerance while pretending to be a friend of the gay community."

Churches: you can use big screen televisions to show the Super Bowl again this year! It is almost a year since the Christian Coalition of America went against the National Football League (NFL) and churches won.

Even though the NFL had for years allowed your local bars to show the Super Bowl game on gigantic television screens, last year it refused to allow churches to have the same privilege. Churches had been holding Super Bowl parties/gatherings for the families in their churches and used big screens to watch the Super Bowl. It was a great time for camaraderie and opportunties to meet new people within and outside their churches.

To change the mind of the NFL, early last year, Christian Coalition activists around the country, and others, began lobbying their...

Today is Religious Freedom Day. It is very interesting that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other civil liberties' groups are not championing a free speech decision handed down on January 12th by the United States Supreme Court. Maybe it is because the decision handed a great victory to the pro-life movement. The "California Catholic Daily," in yesterday's article entitled "No double standard for pro-life speech," said that the nation's highest court denied "appeal of ruling in favor of California pro-lifers who drove truck with graphic photos of aborted baby around public school." The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department had appealed a lower federal court ruling last year that deputies violated the constitutional rights of two pro-life protesters who were...

I was pleased to see the bipartisan op-ed in Friday's "The Washington Times" by the Democrat House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer from Maryland, and by the Republican House Minority Whip, Eric Cantor from Virginia. 

They begin their column by saying:  "During this difficult war in the Gaza Strip, we stand with Israel.  Why?  Because we have been to Israel.  We have seen Sderot.  In August 2005 and again in 2007, we visited the region of southern Israel that includes this embattled Israeli border town.  Taken together, the trips helped us define the historical and military context for Israel's current action in Gaza." 

This writer along with other officials at Christian Coalition of America, also visited Israel, several years ago, as guests of...

Did anyone think  --  despite the analysis by Messiah's (Barack Obama's) sycophants in the news media that Obama's appointments are centrist and that House speaker Nancy Pelosi will be reaching out from the center  --  that the Democrats would indeed govern from the center? 

That analysis has already been proven wrong as the Democrats in Congress are about to pass some of the most left-wing legislation in American history.  Today's "Washington Times" reported that the Democrats will likely pass a massive lands bill which would preserve more than 2 million acres of land; establish another layer of socialism, whoops, bureaucracy in the Bureau of Land Management, and even designate the childhood home of the only elected president in American...

Incredibly, Barack Obama said yesterday in his major economic speech on the economy, that only government can solve the economic crisis in America.  And he said it twice for emphasis. 

Even a previous Democrat president knew that that is not correct; government is NOT the solution.  John F. Kennedy in the early 1960's actually got passed in Congress the largest tax cut in American history  --  up to that point  --  because Kennedy knew the federal government could not rescue the economy; only the free enterprise, American capitalistic system could do that.  President Ronald Reagan followed Kennedy's example and cut taxes and as a result America experienced a 25 year robust economic boom. 

Yet, even after President Kennedy was proven right by producing millions...

The left-wing "Old Media"  --  which is claiming the credit for electing the most liberal presidential candidate in history  --  is blaming the wrong guy, President George W. Bush, for the housing crisis.  Instead, the real culprits, Democrat Congressman Barney Frank from Massachusetts, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and Democrat Senator Chris Dodd from Connecticut, Chairman of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, should get the lions share of the blame for protecting the two giant government-sponsored housing corporations, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. 

Karl Rove, the former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to President Bush argued in a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed piece that President Bush actually tried to rein in these...
