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 »

NEW BERN – Tuesday, President Donald Trump posted to his Twitter account that Hurricane Florence had been “a tough hurricane.” He said it was “[o]ne of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water.”

“Florence has been a nasty one,” added the President, “A big one like that area certainly has never seen before.”

On Wednesday, President Trump boarded Air Force One and came to North Carolina to survey the devastation first hand. With him for the trip were North Carolina’s two U.S. Senators, Thom Tillis, and Richard Burr. Read the rest of this entry »

Refuge Preparation

By now the pounding of Hurricane Florence has finally moved on. However, not before leaving in it’s path death and massive destruction. Assessment of damages, cleaning up downed trees, construction debris, and restoration of electric power is only beginning.

History may indicate that this was the slowest moving disastrous event ever in our state. Over several weeks, even before its effects began to be felt inland, forecasts and warnings were awarded first place in the news and conversations for days and days. GET READY was the message.

Is the Church Becoming Too Political?

By Timothy Buchanan
September 19, 2018

Listen to pastors or Bible teachers on your local radio station or watch them on television, and before long you will hear an apology for “being political” whenever a moral issue is introduced.  The fear of controversy has captivated many local churches to the extent that fundamental issues of morality are usually avoided.  Apprehension over broaching what is considered the domain of politics is understandable in our combative and litigious postmodern culture.  But it also illustrates a fatal flaw.

Preparation of the Heart before a Mighty Storm

By Dr. Mark Creech

A hurricane develops at sea. The water temperature has to be at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which is why Northern latitudes are usually spared. The warm sea creates a funnel of air which rises to perhaps 50,000 feet, producing vast cumulus clouds. High air currents are distributed, and more air from below is drawn into the funnel. Earth’s rotation gives it a twist, and the gigantic storm is born – a mass of winds that can be as much as 400 miles in diameter, swirling around at speeds up to 200 miles per hour.

A hurricane can lift sixty million, or more, tons of water and generate more power every ten seconds than all the electric power used in the United States in a year. Read the rest of this entry »

Patriot’s Day: We Remember September 11, 2001

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists, mostly from Saudi Arabia, hijacked four commercial jetliners and turned them into flying bombs. Two of the hijacked planes slammed into the 110 story twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Americans watched their TV screens in horror as the two skyscrapers, among the tallest in the world, collapsed. Another plane hit the Pentagon, and the fourth jet crashed in rural Pennsylvania.

Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks including more than 400 firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical services workers who had rushed to the World Trade Center to help survivors before the buildings fell. Read the rest of this entry »

URGENT ALERT: Fayetteville City Council Pulls SOGI Ordinance: Pastors and Church Lay Leaders Should Still Attend the Meeting

Friday, the Christian Action League sent an Urgent Alert to pastors and churches in the Fayetteville area about a SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity) nondiscrimination ordinance set to be considered by the Fayetteville City Council. The League is pleased to inform everyone that the City Council has withdrawn the proposal from tonight’s agenda.

Rev. Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League, said that the League’s Alert was sent in conjunction with its friends from the North Carolina Values Coalition and the North Carolina Family Policy Council, which did the same.

“The response was nothing less than phenomenal,” said Creech. “The Fayetteville Observer confirms that council members were ‘bombarded’ with contacts and swiftly yanked the proposal from their agenda. It’s obvious the people in Fayetteville don’t believe the spin on this ordinance. They know SOGI measures require religious freedom to be sent to the back of the bus. I’m grateful for the way concerned Citizen Christians from Cumberland County responded, as well as others from across the state, who zealously urged council members not to take-up or pass the ordinance.” Read the rest of this entry »

URGENT ALERT: Fayetteville City Council to Consider SOGI Ordinance That Would Defy the Compromise Law That Repealed HB 2

By CAL Staff

September 7, 2018

Do you remember the heated controversy in our state over HB 2? The law enacted by the North Carolina General Assembly was in response to a SOGI ordinance that was passed by the City of Charlotte. The situation was a firestorm of heated controversy.  After considerable pressure, the General Assembly repealed HB 2 and replaced it with HB 142, which was a compromise. The compromise law repealed HB 2, but it also said that no SOGI ordinances may be passed by any city or town, until after December 21, 2020.

It seems that Fayetteville is prepared to defy the law that passed as a compromise. Read the rest of this entry »

The Health and Safety of North Carolina Citizens is Threatened!

Dear Friend of the Christian Action League,

The health and safety of North Carolina citizens is threatened!

We are soon to be facing a matter that could be every bit as monumental as the fight we had against a state-operated lottery more than a decade ago, or North Carolina’s Marriage Amendment in 2012, or the battle over HB 2 in 2016.

The issue concerns a forthcoming proposal to substantially change the state’s current policy for liquor sales – a revision that will undermine the health, safety, and well-being of our citizenry. Read the rest of this entry »
