CONSERVATIVES IN CONGRESS - The Republican Study Committee is a caucus of conservative Republicans in the House. Virtually all of the members of the Caucus are social and economic conservatives. Although there are 199 Republicans in the House, less than 100 belong to the RSC. Is your congressman a member of the RSC? Check here.

MURTHA'S REDNECK DISTRICT - There are a bunch of loud mouthed radical Democrats in the House, starting with San Francisco radical House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Of all the radicals, the one who least represents his district is John Murtha. His constituents in rural Pennsylvania are church going folks, many of whom work in mines and mills. His votes in Congress on social issues just don't agree with his constituents beliefs, and a few weeks ago he revealed why when he called them "racists" and "rednecks." Read More.

HOUR OF POWER - CHURCH OF PSYCHOLOGY - Crystal Cathedral and Hour of Power Founder Rev. Robert Schuller has ousted his son from preaching on the weekly show because his messages were based on the Bible. Yes, you read that right ... his son, Robert Schuller, Jr. was ousted because he was preaching Biblical truth. "I was called to start a mission, not a church," the elder Schuller told his audience the Sunday after he fired his son. "There is a difference. . . . You don't try to preach . . . what is sin and what isn't sin. A mission is a place where you ask nonbelievers to come and find faith and hope and feel love. We're a mission first, a church second." Read LA Times article with full quote.

CHRISTIAN MARTYRS IN IRAQ - The Iraqi government has lied about sending 1,000 police to Mosul to stop the violence against Christians there. Most of the Christians in Mosul have already fled from their homes in Baghdad and other areas of southern Iraq. With the Jordanian and Syrian borders closed and the United States unwilling to assist them, there is not much else Christians can do except be martyred for Christ. Click here to read Ken Timmerman's latest article on the crisis.

CHRISTIANS FACE MORE ATTACKS IN INDIA - Months ago I wrote about the attacks on Christians in eastern India, particularly in the state of Orissa. Despite public outcry including a statement from the Pope, and a promise from the Indian government to act, the crimes against Christians continue. Read more

AFGHANISTAN FREEDOM? - To put the words "Afghanistan" and "freedom" in the same sentence is an oxymoron. The two words contradict one another. American blood has been spilled in Afghanistan to allow the enforcement of Sharia laws, including disenfranchising women, stoning people to death for adultery and sending others to jail for decades for asking the wrong questions in a college class room. After a student in Afghanistan was sentenced to 20 years in jail for "blasphemy," a Canadian newspaper asked in an editorial, "What are we doing there?" Read editorial
