posted by dgilgoff

By Steve Strang, founder and publisher of Charisma magazine and a supporter of Mike Huckabee for president As a Christian, my faith is the most important thing in my life. It defines where I work, the friends I have, who […]

posted by dgilgoff

By Mark DeMoss, president of The DeMoss Group and a supporter of Mitt Romney for President I have something in common with Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and, Mike Huckabee—we all claim affiliation with the Southern Baptist Convention, meaning […]

Huckabee shoots over the heads of the reporters

posted by Michele McGinty

Evidently, he violated gun safety etiquette: Republican Mike Huckabee took his presidential campaign for a quick pheasant-hunting expedition in Iowa on Wednesday, and at one point, a reporter asked why he hadn’t invited sporting enthusiast Dick Cheney along. “Because I […]

Baptist Civil War Fallout, or Why Evangelical Leaders Aren’t Luvin’ on Huck

posted by dcaldwell

And now for some inside baseball about the puzzling question of why the leaders of the religious right aren’t in love with Mike Huckabee. The former Arkansas governor is an ordained Baptist pastor who believes everything in the Bible is […]

McCain’s Christmas ad

posted by Michele McGinty

As long time readers (I know that we have a couple) know, I’m not a McCain supporter at all but I thought his Christmas ad was quite moving and it made me tear up. Allahpundit thinks he might have been […]

They fear him because he will lose in the general

posted by Michele McGinty

They realize that he’s not ready for prime time. I think that might be the answer to Rod Dreher’s question, “Why does the GOP Establishment fear Huck?” I know that would be my answer to that question. They’re afraid that […]

Rudy’s Christmas campaign ad

posted by Michele McGinty

It’s a nice little ad, focusing on where the voters’ attention is right now: Christmas and politics. He was smart to include campaign issues along with his Christmas greetings. And he brilliantly wished everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday […]

Rep. Steve King endorsed Thompson

posted by Michele McGinty

After he endorsed Romney. Very strange and confusing for the MSM. Here’s the backstory: The Iowa congressman kept his endorsement choice under wraps so closely that no one knew who he would choose between Thompson or Romney for his nod. […]

Huckabee has a BA from a Bible college…

posted by Michele McGinty

And he says that he has a theology degree? In an interview with CBNNews in November, Huckabee said “…I truly understand the nature of the war that we are in with Islamo fascism. These are people that want to kill […]

Huckabee brought the “religious war” on himself

posted by Michele McGinty

David writes: “If Mitt Romney isn’t required to face a theological grilling about his religious beliefs, why should Mike Huckabee be subjected to that grilling?” Because Huckabee is campaigning on his “Christian leadership” skills. You can’t blame the MSM for […]

Richard Land: Romney Speech Reflections

posted by dgilgoff

By Richard Land Mitt Romney gave an eloquent defense of the positive and crucial rule that religion has played in our nation’s history from the first settlements down to the present day. In that regard, Gov. Romney performed an important […]

Romney’s Attack on Non-Believers

posted by swaldman

I was struck by the bald attack on non-believers: “Any believer in religious freedom, any person who has knelt in prayer to the Almighty, has a friend and ally in me.” He went beyond assailing “secularism” (though he did that […]

Huckabee whines that he’s getting asked too many questions about religion!

posted by Michele McGinty

Unbelievable! He makes his Christian faith a major part of his campaign, speaks about it on the stump and even features it in his campaign ads and yet he complains when the press ask about it: Huckabee bristles about the […]

Richard Land: A Hope List for Romney’s Speech

posted by dgilgoff

Former Massachusetts Governor and current Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going to give a speech on “Religion in America” tomorrow in Texas. I have been encouraging Governor Romney to give such a speech for over a year now, since […]

Has Romney Blurred the Lines Between Mormonism and Traditional Christianity?

posted by dgilgoff

By Dan Gilgoff When Mitt Romney stands before the nation tomorrow to deliver his much-anticipated “religion speech,” evangelical Christians will be listening particularly intently. Though polls show that one in four Americans feel squeamish about voting for a Mormon president, […]

Hillary hits Obama on his abortion voting record

posted by Michele McGinty

I guess Hillary has started her negative campaign. You know, if he nuanced this a little and spoke about how precious life was, he may be able to pull away some pro-life voters if it’s a Rudy/Obama race. Here’s what […]

Huckabee unaware of the NIE report on Iran

posted by Michele McGinty

He needs to hire someone to brief him on the news of the day before he meets with the reporters. He is looking very unprepared to this nation in a time of war: Kuhn: I don’t know to what extent […]

Thompson doesn’t express his religious beliefs enough

posted by Michele McGinty

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition! That’s what this race has become. Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson Monday said he didn’t need to apologize for his faith, despite concerns from Christian conservatives that he does not express his religious beliefs […]

A call for Huckabee to give the speech???

posted by Michele McGinty

Is the media going to push Huckabee to give the JFK speech the way they’re pushing Romney? In the near future, the coverage of Huckabee will be an interesting exercise. How will reporters – most of whom cover politics, not […]
