Chicago 50

Starting today, the NAR and associated groups are organizing a new prayer campaign aimed at Chicago. It will have the same duration and organization as the DC 40 initiative. They’re even using the same handbook.

This is not as obviously an attack on separation of church and state (although they still want to destroy that), but I find it offensive in a different way. The proclaimed “target” of this prayer war is corruption. Their materials equate corruption with both gang involvement (rather than seeing it as …

The Values Voter Summit, a gathering of conservatives and evangelicals banding together for political purposes, began today, and no one has made more noise than Jeffress – except perhaps Mitt Romney’s deafening silence in the face of repeated attacks on his religion. Jeffress introduced Rick Perry and said …
