(RNS) At a recent 'evangelical debate' on Trump in Washington, two speakers opposed Trump; two supported him. Here’s how their arguments played out.
(RNS) Kaine’s all-encompassing ‘celebration’ of the diversity of the human family leaves him without any principle by which he can criticize any kind of family arrangement at all.
(RNS) On abortion, Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine, have flown to different wings within the “pro-choice” camp.
(RNS) Many evangelicals would agree with Andrew Sullivan’s assessment of Trump. But they believe the situation is worse than Sullivan imagines.
(RNS) Trump’s reason for being pro-life depends on the potential outcome of the child in the womb, rather than the fact that there is a child in the womb.
(RNS) Make no mistake. Wheaton College is the "rebel" when it comes to enforcing its doctrinal standard, especially considering our society’s distaste for dogma.
(RNS) When politicians or reporters treat the evangelical movement as monolithic, they are most likely taking just one segment of evangelicals (usually, “white” and “older”).
(RNS) One evangelical pastor today told me, “My church members are all over the place on this!”
(RNS) People have a right to take a candidate’s religious views into account before they cast a vote -- whether they are evangelical, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, or not religious at all.
(RNS) All sides of the gun control debate seem to turn to government as the solution. But why do we turn to government first? Are there no other places to turn for comfort, for consolation, for change?
(RNS) For decades now, traditional Anglicans have watched leaders in the West abandon key components of historic Christianity.
(RNS) Hillary Clinton shouldn’t label an opposing position as “extreme” just because she doesn’t agree with it.
(RNS) Violence, abuse, torture, rape, slavery -- these are the warnings we’d have to issue by the time we finished reading the Bible’s first book, Genesis.
(RNS) This is a man who does not know the meaning of the word “shame.” A man who lacks the basic self-awareness to see his own sins and need for redemption.
(RNS) “Why reinvent a system or structure that already exists?” For me, it’s a matter of stewardship, a willingness to work within a denominational structure and make it better, not do away with it and start from scratch.
