Former Lesbian on Why it’s ‘Cruel’ for Church Leaders to Go Soft on Same-Sex Relationships

Lifesite News
December 1, 2016

ClergyRobin Teresa Beck, 59, lived through 12 lesbian relationships over the course of 35 years before her dramatic conversion to the Catholic faith and healing from homosexuality, just five years ago.

Read LifeSiteNews’ coverage of Robin’s dramatic story here. Read the full interview here.

Beck spoke with LifeSiteNews over the phone from her home in Michigan in the Detroit area about everything from the impossibility of creating a healthy gay relationship, to why lesbian relationships can never fulfill the emotional needs of women, to how she believes God looks on people struggling with homosexuality, to how the Church should approach homosexuals.

Her experience with same-sex attraction and the gay lifestyle gives her insight into what is at the heart of homosexuality and why it is fundamentally incompatible with the human person and with Christianity. Read the rest of this entry

‘Thank You Jesus,’ Sunny Little Yard Sign Spreads Powerful Message across N.C. and 21 Other States

Thank You

Most people in America have just finished sitting around a table with their plates piled high with turkey and dressing. In such circumstances, it’s easy to be thankful. But how would people’s lives be changed if all over the nation folks were reminded to say “Thank You Jesus” on a daily basis.

It’s a concept 16-year-old Lucas Hunt said he’s watching God carry out, with a sunny little yard sign that started in Randolph County, North Carolina, and has now spread across the United States. Read the rest of this entry »

CAL: We are Missions and We Need Your Help

Will Rogers

The incomparable Will Rogers had an interesting take on the foreign missionary work of his day.  He once said, “We are always saving somebody away off…Why, we can’t even Christianize our legislators.”

I certainly don’t want to disparage in any fashion the work of foreign missions. Nevertheless, I would agree that there is too little emphasis on the church’s responsibility to bring the Gospel of Christ and the principles of the Word of God to bear on our political process.

About a year ago, the leadership of one church rejected a request from some of its members to support the Christian Action League, saying, they only wanted their funds to go to missions. But I strongly argue the Christian Action League is Christian missions. Churches need to understand our ministry can be the difference between God-fearing legislators or God-sneering ones.

The Gubernatorial Race: Is HB 2 Safe and Will It Remain in Force?

By M.H. Cavanaugh
Christian Action League
November 18, 2016

ProtestSince North Carolina’s gubernatorial race still hangs in the balance, many Christians are asking if HB 2, “the bathroom bill,” is safe and will it remain in force.

Chad Griffin of the Human Rights Campaign and Chris Sgro of Equality N.C., claim the gubernatorial election was a referendum on the new law. In a joint statement released a day after the election, November 9th, the two argue:

“We are confident that once the results are certified, Roy Cooper’s victory will be confirmed. By electing Roy Cooper their next governor, North Carolinians have sent a powerful message across their state and this country that the days of anti-LGBTQ politicians targeting our community for political gain are over.  While McCrory may have been surprised by the overwhelming opposition in this state and across the country to his discriminatory politics, the same will not be true for lawmakers who are considering doubling down on anti-LGBTQ extremism in the future. This is a wake-up call.” Read the rest of this entry »

North Carolina Race for Governor Continues

By Hunter Hines

November 18, 2016

NCRALEIGH – When Donald Trump was winning the White House on November 8th, the mood for the NCGOP was festive. Incumbent Gov. Pat McCrory (R) was leading Attorney General Roy Cooper in the gubernatorial race by approximately 50,000 votes. That mood changed considerably, however, when Durham County dropped in more than 90,000 votes from early-voting sites and Cooper took the lead with less than a 5,000 vote spread between them.

That prompted McCrory to come out around 12:30 am Wednesday (Nov. 9th) to argue before his supporters that the results of the race were too close to call. The final results, he said, would depend on the canvassing by the counties which should be complete by November 18th. In the meantime, amid concerns of voter irregularities in Durham County, the Governor promised that he and his team would be working to make certain every vote was counted.

Cooper also spoke to his supporters that same night, thanked them for their support and declared victory. He said he felt confident that when the vote was certified it would show him the winner. Read the rest of this entry »

The Voter Discrimination Nobody is Talking About

By Francis De Luca
Civitas Institute
November 18, 2016

VoteWhen people think of discrimination and voting they quickly go to the where the Left wants them to go and think about young people, poor people and minorities. But there is a more insidious type of discrimination and in 2016 it likely impacted the election here in North Carolina.

With statewide races, including the Governor and State Auditor, being decided by fewer than 5,000 votes, it is highly probable that the over-70,000 voters who used the “Same Day Registration” (SDR) method during one-stop voting decided these and some other 2016 elections. These 70,000 voters are receiving special treatment while the other 4.6 million-plus voters who voted this year follow the law governing registration and voting.

How do these SDR voters receive special treatment? The differences are when their votes are counted and how the state verifies that their registration is valid and complies with the law.

The verification process for traditional voter registration involves mailing the new registrant a voting card that has information about offices the registrant can vote for and their polling place location on Election Day. If the card is not returned to the local board of elections by the post office as undeliverable within 15 days, the registration is verified. Read the rest of this entry

Summary of North Carolina Election Results 2016

November 11, 2016

ElectionNorth Carolina, which has become a battleground state in recent years, had good results on the federal level this election season, but it was a mixed bag for state offices.

With its 15 electoral votes up for grabs, Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in the Tar Heel state for the Presidency of the United States. Trump garnered 49.90% of the vote to Clinton’s 46.13%. Both candidates campaigned heavily in the state.

According to reports by the Associated Press, exit polling showed most North Carolinians thought the economy was the main concern. A wide majority of voters had a negative view of the federal government and felt it needed change. Evangelical voters provided strong support for Trump.

For the U.S. Senate seat representing North Carolina, incumbent Republican Sen. Richard Burr beat Democratic challenger Deborah Ross. Read the rest of this entry »

The Election of Donald Trump: Perhaps a Reprieve for America

By Dr. Mark Creech
Christian Action League
November 9, 2016

TrumpI am not divine, only a man, but if I am correct in my assessment, I see the election of Donald Trump as a reprieve for America. Massive numbers of Evangelicals showed up at the polls to vote for Trump. Perhaps God has seen our love for this country and has answered our prayers for a stay on his judgment. The election of Clinton would have most certainly moved us closer to that tragic end. Still, America needs more than a reprieve, it needs redemption.

This means our efforts at evangelism, while also engaging the culture with the teachings of the Word of God must increase. We must not go back to business as usual, warming our pews, sustaining our religious traditions, and solely depending on the results of an election. Instead, we must pick up a Cross, perhaps suffer many offenses and make numerous sacrifices to pull our country back from the abyss. Read the rest of this entry »

Today is Election Day – Today We Choose Our Destiny

By Dr. Mark Creech
Christian Action League
November 8, 2016

ElectionThe great William Jennings Bryant once said, “Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”

Today is Election Day. And make no mistake, today we will choose a destiny.

Even the choice not to choose will have its consequences.

The Scriptures warn us, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Prov. 14:34). At the heart of America’s greatest problems – the reason we are subject to careening over a cliff, can be found in our rejection of God and his way. If our destiny is to be an exalted one, then we will need to personally choose him, as well as to choose leaders that will choose his way.

Here are a few very important races to consider as you head to the ballot box today. Read the rest of this entry »
