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.

So the Kentucky Senate race, as Fixer Aaron Blake noted on Twitter, appears to have devolved into a contest over who is holding a gun and how. In his latest salvo, however, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) has pretty convincingly won the debate. You may recall/do recall/should recall that on Monday, his opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) suggested that McConnell wasn´t a real Kentuckian because he once held an antique rifle in the air. (See above.) The spot featured Grimes shooting skeet while talking about her campaign platform and how she is different than President Obama. Then McConnell responded

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff raised the possibility Tuesday that U.S. troops could become involved in ground attacks against the Islamic State, despite repeated pledges to the contrary from President Obama. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee that U.S. military advisers are helping Iraqi government forces prepare for a major offensive to reclaim territory seized by the Islamic State in recent months. Although the advisers have been assigned primarily to assist with planning and coordination, Dempsey for the first time suggested that they eventually could go into the field on combat missions.

WASHINGTON— Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was reportedly told by an NFL uniform inspector not to wear his “Know Jesus, Know Peace” t-shirt before Sunday’s postgame press conference. Michael Phillips, the Redskins reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, posted on Twitter that Griffin was told he couldn’t wear the t-shirt because it wasn’t a Nike product. “RGIII was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Know Jesus, Know Peace.’ NFL Uniform Inspector Tony McGee (former Skins DE) approached Griffin,” Phillips tweeted. “McGee told Griffin he couldn’t wear the shirt because it wasn’t a Nike product.

Nicolle Wallace, who must have been resuscitated back to partial life after a coma-inducing debut as co-host of ABC’s The View, said Tuesday that President Barack Obama appears ineffective as a leader because he does not “love” people. Wallace’s comment came as she and her co-hosts were discussing conservative commentator’s Charles Krauthammer recent remark that Obama is a “narcissist.” Wallace noted that as a former psychiatrist, Krauthammer was “offering a semi-expert opinion” on Obama and compared the president to Vice President Joe Biden who’s widely regarded as a people person.

Last month, Max Shireson gave up his job running a billion-dollar startup to spend more time with his family. And he couldn’t be happier. Schireson’s departure from Internet database company MongoDB Inc., which he announced in a blog post that quickly went viral, became a catalyst for a discussion that rarely takes place in the national media: the challenges faced by fathers as they attempt to balance work and family. I was thrilled by that. As a scholar, advocate and consultant in the area, Schireson’s story resonated with me. And the more we acknowledge the importance these issues, the better

“Too Big To Fail” has never been applied to a besieged nation torn apart by sectarian factions, but let’s try it here: Afghanistan’s government recently asked the US for a $537 million bailout to pay its bills, and they’d like it within the next “five to six” days. “We hope they will pay for us, and we are asking at once,” Alhaj M. Aqa, the director general of the treasury at the Ministry of Finance, told The Washington Post. “They are asking me when I need it, and I told them this week or we will have a problem.” Thanks

House Republicans emerged from a Tuesday morning conference meeting predicting a proposal to arm Syrian rebels to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will pass — but only if Democrats provide significant support. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) said he wasn’t sure his amendment granting President Obama’s request for congressional authority would be backed by a majority of Republican lawmakers, many of whom expressed deep reservations about the plan. And Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), a member close to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), predicted that Democrats would have to supply a significant number of votes

"If we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I´ll recommend that to the president," Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. Asked to clarify, Dempsey said that all U.S. troops are trained to be combat-capable, but "that´s different than how we use them." "And in the case of our contributions in Iraq right now, the airmen... are very much in a combat role. The folks on the ground are very much in a combat advisory role.

Among the many metrics that show Obama´s home state is struggling to break the Great Recession, a new report shows that applications for food stamps in Illinois is greater than its creation of jobs. Illinois has had the worst recovery from the recession of any state in the country, the Illinois Policy Institute reported this month: "There are nearly 300,000 fewer Illinoisans working today than in January 2008, and 170,000 fewer payroll jobs. " "For every post-recession job created in Illinois, nearly two people have enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps," the Institute

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.
