Are you a Christian or Christian American? Or maybe you weren’t aware of a difference. A Christian is the same universally. The message of Jesus Christ and the Christian Bible is taught essentially the same all over the world. This message is what made Billy Graham famous in his campaigns where he led hundreds, if not thousands, to the Lord every night during his evangelist tours. But is this enough for an American? Billy Graham was a Christian. He was not a Christian American. His universal message could not emphasize the United States as a Christian nation.

Every Vote Counts, and Why it Matters on Nov. 5
“If a candidate for public office does not understand that life begins at conception, or that Life and Liberty are inalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator rather than by Government, or that marriage is only between one man and one woman, or that America is and must remain ‘One Nation under God’, he does not deserve our trust or our vote.” Rakazzi

“Gentlemen, we have run out of money. It is time to start thinking,” said Earnest Rutherford. Federal spending is now at crisis levels. No one can spend more money than he/she receives without consequences - not even Washington, DC!
Bake a cake as fast as you can.… because tomorrow you might not be allowed to.
Closing your store after being sued, harassed and threatened is now the “price” you may pay for actually exercising your religious freedom in America. But that’s okay, I guess. After all, everything is about jobs and the economy.
Three years ago we commemorated the 10th anniversary of the tragic attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the hijacking and then crash of Flt. 93 in Pennsylvania. We are re-airing the program we recorded at that time because we must never forget the 3,000 innocent victims of those attacks or the pain and suffering that their families still endure.
August 2, 2013 Richmond, VA. – The Virginia Christian Alliance (VCA) has filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the United States Supreme Court in the highly publicized public prayer case of Town of Greece v. Galloway.
