Top Ten Reasons I May Not Have Answered Your Question (Part 1 of 2)

Barack Obama: A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion candidate ever to run for President. He could not even bring himself to vote for the Born Alive Infant Protection Act which would have protected children born in the process of an abortion.

The Elephant in the Room

This past week a firestorm erupted over the recent “Elephant Room 2.” The controversy centers around the decision to invite Bishop T.D. Jakes to participate in the event.
