As 20th Anniversary of Columbine School Shooting Approaches, a Rare Showing of Solidarity Among Church and Ministry Leaders Across the Political and Theological Spectrum, Together with the Presence of a Columbine Victim, is Hoped to Move Senate to Action on Universal Background Checks and Red Flag Laws

WASHINGTON -- In what may be a pivot in the often contentious 2nd Amendment / Gun Violence Prevention debate, a diverse group of unlikely allies - conservative evangelical and liberal mainline church leaders - are joining together to deliver a unified message to Senators on April 16 and April 17: "We are concerned over the current status of legislation related to sensible gun regulation - we all agree that this is a moral and ethical issue in our country and the time for action is overdue."

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The following information should matter to the 70% of the U.S. population that still self-identifies as "Christian."

Highlights

A person with an income of $25,000 a year in the U.S. lives on $68.49 a day. That's more than ten times the amount that 46% of the people in the world live on ($5.50 a day or less).

Although Americans are used to thinking of the "super rich" as the "rich," in fact, most Americans are the "regular rich" on a global scale.

The Pentagon's implementation on Friday of a new policy restricting military service by those who identify as transgender continues to draw criticism. But the reality is most of the critics have made little effort to accurately understand it. This is true even of groups presenting themselves as experts -- like the American Medical Association. The AMA was quoted last week criticizing the Pentagon document to implement the policy for using the word "deficiencies" in explaining when transgender service members may be separated from the military. AMA president Dr. Barbara L. McAneny told the Associated Press, "The only thing deficient is any medical science behind this decision."

The Trump administration’s discussion of a plan to drop illegal migrants off in sanctuary cities met with an unexpected pushback Thursday from some of the most vocal advocates of laxer immigration laws.

According to a Washington Post report published Thursday, the White House approached Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at least twice to propose that illegal border-crossers be transported to sanctuary cities.

The Green New Deal is not “new,” it is not “green” other than in name, and it is not a “deal.” In other words, it is a technocrat’s delight because it revisits and resuscitates their goal of total government control without appearing to do so. Proponents of the original idea that humans were causing global warming are losing the war one battle at a time. They did what they always do. Ignore the evidence and move the goalposts. That is what they are doing with the Green New Deal. It is the same use of false or deliberately created science to convince people that they can save themselves from the sky falling. Chicken Little reappears as Big Turkey.
