The Christian Action League, the oldest Christian Public Policy organization in the state, places such matters as the sacredness of home life in the roles of a husband and wife, the precious gift of unborn children with their inherent right to life, the right of every person to practice his or her faith freely without government interference, far above popular emerging trends.

Turkish Court Releases Pastor Brunson to Return to America

Friday, a Turkish Court released North Carolina pastor, Andrew Brunson. The court convicted Brunson of terror-related charges, but released him taking into account the time he had already served in prison and his good conduct. It also lifted his house arrest and travel ban so he could return to the United States.

The charges against Brunson, which he denied, were always unsubstantiated and the U.S. State Department argued that he had committed no crime. North Carolina U.S. Senator, Thom Tillis (R) stated the only thing Brunson was guilty of was sharing his faith with those who would listen.  Read the rest of this entry »

Duplicity in Full Display

By Rev. Mark Creech

October 6, 2018

 

Even the best people are vulnerable to duplicity. Joseph Bayly said that “Hypocrisy is a terrible sign of trouble in our hearts – it waits only for the day of exposure.”

In the attack on Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, we saw duplicity in full display. Kavanaugh faced multiple allegations of alcohol abuse and sexual misconduct that allegedly occurred during his days in high school and college. None of these claims were ever corroborated, not even after a thorough FBI investigation. Nevertheless, despite his impeccable record of public service over several years, Democrats insisted these allegations were sufficient enough to deny him a seat on the High Court.

Oddly, Democrats never demanded such purity of character from Barak Obama, who by his own admission spoke about the serious errors of his youth.  Read the rest of this entry »

CAL is at Work, No E-Newsletter, ‘The CAL Insider,’ for this Week

Christian Action League
October 4, 2018

The Christian Action League is at work. We’re not only working to educate and empower churches to engage the political process from a Christian worldview, we are working on ourselves. We want to improve our brand. We want to improve our efficiency. We want to improve our reach. We’re working on all of these things and we look forward to providing you more information about our endeavors in the near future.

Part of this effort involves making some technical changes, which means we have to suspend our weekly e-newsletter, The CAL Insider, for this week. With some of the issues out there, both state and national, it’s not a good time to do this. But then again, we’re not sure there ever is a good time. We work diligently to provide you with the most up-to-date information on the myriad of social issues affecting the Tar Heel state. Our goal is to constantly keep you plugged in via your prayers, your advocacy, and Christian action.

Barring any unexpected circumstances, we plan to be back on track next week.

Thank you for your patience.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Thursday, at the nation’s Capital Building it was a day of high-drama as Dr. Christian Blasey Ford, and Judge Brett Cavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ford, with her voice trembling at times, said Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sexually assaulted her when they were both high school students in 1982. She provided some detail about what she thought at the time was an attempted rape by Kavanaugh. She admitted that there were gaps in her memory about what home she was at when the alleged sexual assault occurred, how she got there, and how she departed. Nevertheless, she insisted she was 100% certain that her attacker was Brett Kavanaugh. Read the rest of this entry »

The 2016 election of President Donald Trump was a “reprieve” from God in order to “get things right,” according to a Baptist pastor who’s running for Congress.

Mark Harris, former senior pastor at First Baptist Charlotte, is running for the House of Representatives’ seat for the 9th Congressional District of North Carolina.

During a panel of candidates at the Values Voter Summit Friday, Harris explained that he saw a spiritual significance to the results of the 2016 election. Read the rest of this entry.

Kavanaugh’s ‘Virgin Defense’

By Rev. Mark Creech

In reference to the allegations of sexual assault against him, Judge Brett Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News’ Martha McCallum, “I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or many years thereafter.” 

“So you are saying that through all these years in question that you were a virgin?” asked McCallum. “That’s correct,” said Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh also referenced the same during his latest testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, saying his abstinence from sex during those years was a matter of  “faith, respect, and caution.” Read the rest of this entry »

Kavanaugh’s Confirmation: A Call to Prayer

Despite what Sen. Mitch McConnell says, as well as other Republican leaders, there is no assurance on which way, up or down, Senate Judiciary Committee members will vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In my estimation, the saddest thing about this situation is that the vote is likely to be determined by the subjective opinions of committee members to the credibility of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The Democratic Party, the primary opposition to Kavanaugh, has already succeeded in making this the standard. Read the rest of this entry »

LINCOLNTON – A free speech case that involved a street preacher went before a District Court on Monday, in Lincolnton, NC. Jeffrey Dean Shook prevailed against a charge that he had violated a new ordinance in that city which critics argue was designed specifically for shutting-down street preachers.

Street preachers have been attending public events such as the Apple Festival and Alive After Five concerts in Lincolnton over the last few years. Read the rest of this entry »
