Ex-evangelical rips the fake Christian ‘good women of Alabama’ who want Roy Moore’s accusers to shut up

Published

on

As part of a panel discussion on AM Joy, former evangelical Franklin Schaeffer tore into Roy Moore’s female followers for betraying their Christian faith and replacing it with “moral relativism” in the service of defending the embattled U.S. Senate candidate.

According to Schaeffer, the son of influential Christian leader Francis Schaeffer, evangelicals are flocking to support Moore by using the part of the Bible that says women should remain silent and listen to men.

Describing an earlier era when evangelist Billy Graham avoided endorsing politicians after being appalled by President Richard Nixon’s profanity and antisemitism, Schaeffer first attacked Graham’s son, Franklin.

“Fast forward to our own era,” Schaeffer remarked. “Franklin Graham, defending Donald Trump grabbing woman by the crotch, and saying, ‘Well, we all sin.'”

Schaeffer then railed at the evangelicals who have turned against their own beliefs and embraced “situational relativistic ethics” in order to maintain power.

Addressing the Biblical admonition to women to be “obedient”  their husbands, Schaeffer expanded upon why Moore’s Christian supporters are refusing to listen to his multiple accusers.

“The evangelicals are expert at discounting women’s points of view anyway,” he lectured. “If you look at the literal interpretation of St. Paul, and I am not paraphrasing, ‘Women should sit down in church and not be heard from.’ And not just church, in any situation, and be in obedience to your husband. That is the context in which these good women of Alabama are standing up and supporting, not just Roy Moore, but a sociological system which discounts women’s witnesses as if they are just half citizens.”

“Evangelicals treat women that way, discount what they say and they are now are preaching moral relativism,” he concluded.

Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate

Published

on

Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.

The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.

But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.

Here are 4 winners and 9 losers from the first 2020 Democratic primary debate

Published

on

With ten candidates on stage Wednesday, the opening debate of the 2020 Democratic primary in Miami was a packed mess. And this was only the first course in a two-part event — 10 more candidates will debate on the following night.

A crowded field makes it difficult to stand out, and that means that even after a big night like a debate, the most likely result is that not much changes. But the debate was still significant, giving candidates the chance to exceed, meet, or fall below expectations for their performances.

Here's a list — necessarily subjective, of course — of the people who came out on the top when the dust was settled, and those who came out on the bottom.

Here are 3 ways Julián Castro stood out in the first Democratic Debate

Published

on

There were many predictions going into the first Democratic debate on MSNBC, but no one predicted that Julián Castro would break out from the crowd.

Check out the top three ways Castro stood out from the crowd.

Immigration:

The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development was the outright winner of the immigration section of the debate

It should "piss us all off," Castro said about the father and his little girl who were found face-down in the shores of the Rio Grande River this week. “It’s heartbreaking."

Castro is a second generation American who got into specifics on immigration policy, calling for an outright "Marshall Plan" style of action for Guatemala and Honduras. He joined with other Democrats calling for an end to President Donald Trump's family separation policy, but he then suggested ending the "metering" of legitimate asylum seekers.
