How You Can Stand with Houston Pastors

You've undoubtedly already heard from my friend Tony Perkins about the pastors and churches in Houston, Texas that have had their internal church communication subpoenaed by the Houston Mayor Annise Parker.

Adoption Works Well

by Pat Fagan

Adoption is life-alteringly beneficial for children. Such is the general conclusion from a review of the literature. Adoption in the first 12 months of the child’s life produces the best outcomes, but all children will benefit, regardless of their age at placement.

With those six words, a 27 year-old Sudanese mother opened her address to the audience of the 2014 Values Voter Summit Saturday night. It was only four short months ago that a shackled Mariam Ibraheem gave birth to a baby girl in a disease-ridden Khartoum prison as she faced a death sentence -- all because she refused to renounce her faith in Christ.
