Cruz Says Support for Drafting Women Immoral
Ted Cruz broke with his Republican colleagues on Monday calling the possible drafting on women into service ‘immoral’. “Political correctness is dangerous, and the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, I think is wrong,” Cruz stated.
Cruz noted that while he would support his daughters’ ambitions if they chose to join the military, he couldn’t support forcibly putting women on the front lines. “It’s one more sign of this politically correct world where we forget common sense,” Cruz added.
Women in the draft became a hot topic for GOP candidates after an article in The Washington Post pondered the idea of women in the draft now that the Pentagon allows female soldiers to perform in front line combat.
Bernie Sanders Thoughts on God Disappoints Atheists
Bernie Sanders drew the ire of Atheist supporters after comments made in a town hall last Wednesday in regards to his personal religious beliefs.
“It’s a guiding principle in my life, absolutely, it is,” Sanders said when a New Hampshire voter asked about his faith. “Everybody practices religion in a different way. To me, I would not be here tonight; I would not be running for president of the United States, if I did not have very strong religious and spiritual feelings.”
“Sanders defines God in a very different way than the way most Americans do, and, in fact, a way that would be compatible with nontheistic humanists,” Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, told The Huffington Post.
Pro-Life Group Sending Love Letters to Abortion Clinic Workers
A pro-life group is trying a new approach when reaching out to abortion clinic workers; writing them love letters.
In an article published on The Blaze, Abby Johnson, founder and president of And Then There Were None, said that love is the key to getting abortion clinic workers to leave the industry.
“As a former abortion clinic worker, I remember wanting to leave the industry but wondered how it would be perceived,” Johnson said. “Would someone love me enough to help me get out? I knew that I deserved better, and when I left the abortion industry, I wanted to help other workers leave as well, which is why I started ATTWN.”
Johnson is a former Planned Parenthood employee who was once the organization’s employee of the year before becoming pro-life.
