Dispute over religious faith sparks
spat in Arkansas Senate race

Washington Examiner (DC), by Rebecca Berg

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 10:19:23 PM

Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor´s campaign demanded an apology Wednesday from Republican Rep. Tom Cotton after he questioned the depth of Pryor´s religious faith. In an interview Tuesday with a Fayetteville, Ark., radio station, Cotton was asked about the Supreme´s Court decision to allow some businesses to opt out of health coverage for contraceptives, citing religious freedoms. "Barack Obama and Mark Pryor think that faith is only something that happens at 11 o´clock on Sunday mornings," Cotton said. "That´s when we worship, but faith is what we live every single day."

Isn´t this the same Senator Pryor (D-political family legacy) who complained that Mr. Cotton felt "entitled" to Pryor´s seat in the Senate because of Cotton´s military service?

Oh, and the other thing.

The only thing Barack Obama, may his name be praised and his word be law (just practicing for the thought police) thinks about at 11 am Sunday morning is where he´s going to play golf.

And a lot of us go to church long before 11 am Sunday.

Cotton campaign spokesperson David Ray sent a statement to Channel 7 News from Cotton in response to the backlash.

"Senator Pryor is a man of faith and practices it with commendable openness, which I respect, but I wish he would respect Arkansans´ right to practice our faith. Instead, Senator Pryor and President Obama still defend Obamacare even after the Supreme Court said it violated freedom of religion. Senator Pryor supports taxpayer-funded abortion and late-term abortion and would force Christians to pay for abortions despite their deeply held religious beliefs. That´s a real attack on faith," Cotton said.

Congressman Cotton should not apologize for what he said. He didn´t question Pryor´s belief in Christ.

Pryor, who put out a Christmas ad about his faith, is the one that has made his faith a political issue for the very reason Cotton mentions in this statement.

Just like Pelosi and Kerry are "practicing" Catholics and Reid is a Mormon.

You cant be a liberal democrat and a follower of any non-new age religion.

When one examines the much referred to “rules for radicals," it is revealed that these “rules” are nothing more than a rude departure from intellectual debate. These rules do not speak of making cogent points or salient arguments. They do not encourage fact gathering and how to apply logic with the delivery of those facts. They do not discuss intelligent engagement. What these “rules” do is promote the departure from civil discourse. We have witnessed the “make it personal” and the shouting down of opposing view points in public forums. In a nutshell, the “rules” for radicals is “do what

This post has been updated~ President Obama made his first remarks on the Malaysian plane that crashed in Ukraine Thursday, saying that the "world is watching" reports of the downed airliner. “It looks like might be a terrible tragedy,” he said, adding that his team is trying to determine whether there were any Americans onboard the plane. “That is our first priority.” “The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened, and why,” he said. According to the White House, Obama "noted the early reports" of the downed Malaysian Airlines jet near the Russia-Ukraine border

The Malaysia Airlines passenger jet carrying 295 people that was reportedly shot down in Ukraine Thursday is the third plane to be downed in the country this week, according to Ukrainian officials. Here is a quick breakdown of the three incidents: On Monday, a Ukrainian AN-26 military transport was shot down in the separatist stronghold of Luhansk on the Russian border, according to Ukrainian Defense Minister Valeriy Heletei. Heletei told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenk the plane was "hit by another, more powerful missile that was probably used from the territory of the Russian Federation," the Ukrinform news agency said, citing the

Elaine Stritch, Tart-Tongued Broadway
Actress and Singer, Is Dead at 89

Elaine Stritch, the brassy, tart-tongued Broadway actress and singer who became a living emblem of show business durability and perhaps the leading interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s wryly acrid musings on aging, died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89. Her death was confirmed by a friend, Julie Keyes. Before Ms. Stritch moved to Birmingham last year, she lived, famously, for many years at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan. Ms. Stritch’s career began in the 1940s and included her fair share of appearances in movies, including Woody Allen’s “September” (1987) and “Small Time Crooks” (2000),

The news that the DOJ had not interviewed the organization came just days after Attorney General Eric Holder had said that no independent investigator was needed in the growing scandal because “career people” at the FBI were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says immigrants who came to the country illegally at a young age are now legitimate residents and should not be deported. Reid made the remarks in response to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is demanding that an emergency spending bill for the border reverse President Obama’s 2012 order halting deportations of so-called Dreamers. “Before Republicans help our Border Patrol agents and all the personnel trying to do something to handle this humanitarian crisis, they want President Obama to deport the Dreamers who are already here, legitimately here,” he said on the Senate floor Thursday morning.

WASHINGTON– Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson warns that some parents of Central American children attempting to cross the U.S. border illegally already know of the risks, noting that some girls are given birth control “in case they’re raped along the way.” Speaking with the Senate Appropriations Committee last week, Johnson joined the Obama administration in attempting to warn Central American parents to stop sending their children on the dangerous route to entering the U.S. illegally. But Johnson said that he’s met with children and heard stories that some parents are very aware of the risks along the route. “I’ve met with

Her white casket, along with five others bearing the bodies of her husband and four of their children, lay in a line before him, stretching almost the entire width of the sanctuary inside the Mormon chapel on Hafer Road.

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Thanks to our friends at Washington Free Beacon, you’ll never have to watch a Barack Obama speech again. Reason being, this 76-second video shows you everything he’s going to say. He will: Tell you it’s great to be back in whatever town he’s in. Tell you to have a seat – twice. Appreciate the introduction. Love you back. Recommend building more roads and bridges. Say the economy grows from the middle out. Say the wealthy have to “pay their fair share.” Blame Republicans in Congress for everything. Encourage you to vote rather than boo.

Rep. Tom Rice (R., S.C.) and constitutional law expert David Rivkin on Wednesday predicted victory in the lawsuit the House is launching against President Barack Obama. The House Rules Committee held a hearing on the proposed lawsuit, which is intended to prove the unconstitutionality of Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act. Witnesses at the hearing argued about whether the House has standing to sue the president to enforce the law. “I’m very optimistic that this lawsuit will succeed,” Rivkin said in an interview. “I certainly expect there to be a propaganda offensive to

But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep.

I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner."
