Cannibals, the CAL Insider, and a New Website

Reader of the CAL Insider,

Here’s a little levity about an important matter.

A big corporation hired several cannibals. “You are all a part of the team now,” said the Human Resources Representative during the Welcome Briefing. “You get all the usual benefits, and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat, but please don’t eat any of the other employees.” The cannibals promised that they would not.

Four weeks later their boss remarked, “You folks are hard workers, and the company appreciates you. I’m quite satisfied with your performance. However, one of our secretaries has disappeared. Would any of you know what happened to her?” The cannibals all shook their heads, no.   Read the rest of this entry »

Vote, and Vote Biblically

By Rev. Mark Creech

The late Milton Berle used to say as a part of his comedy routine:

“Since perestroika and glasnost, the Russians have changed their electoral system. A man went in to vote and was handed a sealed ballot. He started to tear it open. An election official said, ‘What are you doing, Igor?” ‘I’m opening the ballot. I want to see who I voted for,’ said the man. The election official replied, ‘Don’t be foolish, you’re not supposed to know. We vote secret ballot in this country.’” Read the rest of this entry »

The Son’s Rising

Thursday morning on my way to work, I looked toward the Eastern sky and saw the sun in its splendor breaking the horizon. So taken by the sight, I snapped a picture of it with my phone.

Malachi 4:2 says, “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”

The great Gospel light that streams from Christ is the “sun of righteousness.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Christian Action League’s position is also stated at the end of the explanation of each amendment. Read the rest of this entry

2018 CAL Legislative Wrap-Up

Christian Action League Staff
October 10, 2018

The Christian Action League (CAL) wishes to express its sincere thanks for the support of its ministry.

The CAL, 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 »
