Albert Mohler: Senator Sanders vs. Religious Liberty

Billy Graham

Bernie Sanders recently announced that he will oppose President Trump’s nominee for assistant budget director, Russell Vought, because Vought penned a blog in which he said that Muslims “stand condemned” because they have rejected Jesus Christ.

Vought’s post was a defense of his alma mater, Wheaton College, a Christian institution, and what he articulated was nothing other than historic orthodox biblical Christianity.

Senator Sanders made his position quite clear: “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about.”

Here you have a sitting United States senator rejecting a presidentially appointed candidate simply on the basis of the fact that he had the temerity to write an article defending historic Christian doctrine.

Senator Sanders would no doubt say that he’s a staunch defender of the separation of church and state, and yet what he did here was nothing less than an absolute violation of religious liberty.

Michael Medved: The Left’s International Collapse

Opioid

If Theresa May wins her expected victory in June’s British elections it will represent the latest evidence of a sweeping international trend: the utter collapse of the old left.

Britain’s Labour Party dominated the United Kingdom for 13 years under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, but with radical leader Jeremy Corbin, it’s struggled for traction and relevance. The same thing happened in France, where the candidate of the long-dominant Socialists finished a dismal 5th in recent elections.

In Germany, center right Chancellor Angela Merkel has already ruled for 12 years and is heavily favored to capture another term in September. And in Israel, the leftist Labor Party that held power for the nation’s first 29 years, now commands only 16 percent of their Parliament; Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu faces more formidable competition from fellow leaders on the right.

In America, as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and other hard-liners drag Democrats leftward, the nation’s oldest political party faces much the same fate.
