Donald Trump's rise to lead the Republican party is the result of decades of agitating by far-right activists who have never missed an opportunity to whip their followers into a frenzy, nursing grievances, and spreading conspiracy theories.

Christian Leaders Should Not Compare Obama to Christ

Ellin Jimmerson | Posted 02.09.2017 | Religion

Christian pastors and bloggers have the right to endorse or support any candidate and any president they wish. However, when Christian leaders compare the president or a presidential hopeful to Christ, they must backup their claims with facts.

Christians Should Vote for Competence, Not Faithfulness

Doug Bandow | Posted 02.01.2017 | Politics
Doug Bandow

With the Iowa caucuses upon us, it seems like every Republican tramping through the snow claims to be a Bible-believing, God-fearing, Jesus-loving Christian. Some trot out their parents; others offer personal conversion stories. Some defend persecuted Christians; others explain their policies in Biblical terms. It's a fruitless exercise.

Your message faithfully represents a longstanding (and ugly) stream of American culture and politics. You could spiritually form a generation of people who think of themselves as "Champions for Christ" but who actually become a mirror image of the violent religious warriors you fear and reject.

Christians, Don't Settle For Jerry Falwell Jr's Hateful Faith

Jerry Falwell Jr's vile comments, their warm reception in the crowd, and the subsequent social media defense from other believers, illustrate just how far American Christianity has drifted from the namesake of our faith.

The Coming Evangelical Schism

Joe Boyd | Posted 12.07.2016 | Religion
Joe Boyd

These are testing times. For those of us who come from various Christian Evangelical traditions, a divide is brewing. This gives me no real joy, but it is simply a fact. There are (at least) two kinds of Evangelical Christians in America today. This, I believe, is because there are two different versions of Jesus being taught and worshipped at Christian churches and universities.

I grew up thinking Billy Graham was a hero. My family was Baptist; my dad, a Baptist preacher. I was an adult before I realized Graham wasn't exclusively Baptist though by then he might as well have been because conservative Christians seemed, largely, to have let go of doctrinal differences in favor of ideological absolutes.
