POLITICS: The Christian Party of America

posted by mpt

I’m not sure when it officially started, but it appears that the “principles” of The Christian Party of America (CPA) were published online on April 12, 2011 at around 10 p.m., so despite its website looking like something that was around when Dole/Kemp stickers were in season, The CPA is (I’m assuming) fairly new. Who’s […]

Lynn Grassmeyer, a Christian from Nashville, TN, will remember September 11 by gathering with other Christian believers (along with activists and Muslims) for prayer, meditation, and candlelight. That probably doesn’t sound like a big deal, since the chances are, a bunch of Christians will probably gather for prayer. However, the believers who join Grassmeyer for […]
