When it comes to mixing politics and religion, New York's most prominent Catholic leader says it's a must. “A public square where religious values are absent is perilous,” Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York told "WSJ at Large" host Gerry Baker on FOX Business on Friday.

As we move closer to the 2020 presidential election, political and religious controversies dominate headlines. From gay marriage, abortion and contraception, to divorce and the sanctity of marriage, many in the U.S. find the Church’s position irrelevant or harmful and offensive. But Cardinal Dolan believes that those negative perspectives are "caricatures of the Church” which need to be replaced by ...

A California teacher who sued the state's teachers' association has claimed that unions are working with far-left groups to push and fund their "political agenda" on kids in public schools. Rebecca Friedrichs, the author of "Standing up to Goliath," and educator of 28 years is now telling fellow teachers across the nation about the unions and their right to opt out of funding.

"What's shocking," Friedrichs told "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning, "is teachers have no idea. People think teachers are these far-left people pushing this stuff. That is a lie. Most teachers are good, loving people... but we are being used by very powerful organizations ...

A pro-life student group made their anti-abortion message to New York state loud and clear in a Times Square video billboard campaign calling out the state for its "abortion extremism."

Students for Life of America (SFLA), a national anti-abortion student group, sponsored a massive pro-life video billboard in the heart of New York City to coincide with their national gala "Called to Bring Light to the Darkness" featuring Fox News Radio's Todd Starnes and Bishop Edward Scharfenberger of Albany, both of whom called out Gov. Andrew Cuomo for lighting up the city pink in celebration of the law allowing abortion up to the point of birth.

Kristan Hawkins, the president of SFLA, told Fox News their message resonates with millennials. "We launched a conversation with ...

American students in Alaska and Iowa are protesting the official insistence that people can change their sex by declaring they feel like members of the opposite sex. The pro-biology rebellion reflects the deep public support for the reality that men and women, boys and girls, are equal yet different and complementary, and it follows protests at two schools in Vermont and Missouri.

In Omaha, Neb., WOWT.com reported that one girl led a walkout when a “transgender” boy was allowed by the adults to use the girls’ bathroom: The walkout was triggered by a female student who believes her privacy is being invaded by a student who recently ...

What happened at Paris’ Cathedral of Notre Dame on April 15 is a searing parable for the global Church of Jesus Christ in all its forms, designations and denominations in our time.

I confess to a great love for cathedrals. The soaring design of the massive sanctuaries arose from hearts and minds that understood the reality and importance of God’s transcendence. Through Isaiah, God reveals that “I dwell on a high and holy place. And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit in order to revive the heart of the contrite.” (Isaiah 57:15)

That’s the message-in-architecture proclaimed by these grand buildings. To stand in a Notre Dame is to be simultaneously reminded of one’s “lowliness” and God’s exalted being. The cathedrals represent something we have ...

The Chinese government is destroying crosses, burning bibles, closing churches and forcing Christian believers to sign papers renouncing their faith as the crackdown on religious congregations in Beijing and several provinces intensifies. The suppression of religious freedoms is part of an official campaign to “Sinicize” religion by demanding loyalty to the atheist Communist party and removing any potential challenge to the party’s power in the country.

“The international community should be alarmed and outraged for this blatant violation of freedom of religion and belief,” Bob Fu of China Aid, said. “The situation for Chinese #Christians becomes more dire by the day. We are working tirelessly to ..."

Operation Rescue reported earlier on an incident that took place on March 6, 2019, where an African-American woman was transported from the abortion clinic suffering unknown abortion complications. Four more incidents took place between February 16 and April 4, 2019. This brings the total number of medical emergencies documented at the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood to 19 in the past 26 months.

Each of the five incidents involved women who were African-American. “The fact that the past five medical emergencies involved Black women is not a good look for ...

After becoming homeless, Maggie was sex trafficked at the age of 13. She was lost, afraid, and exploited by men every day...and every man who walked into that room knew that she was a child. But they purchased her anyway. They even made pornography of her abuse - so thousands more could participate in it!

A 2018 survey found that 20% of men in America have bought sex at least once in their lives. That’s why we think it’s vital to combat the demand (the sex buyers fueling the sex trade) in order to solve this problem. If sex buying stopped tomorrow then ...

Keisha Lance Bottoms, mayor of Atlanta, Georgia, tweeted an invitation Friday to allow a drag queen story hour at city hall after the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System removed one of the story hours from its calendar. “Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker and all of our LGBTQ friends are always welcome at Atlanta City Hall,” posted Bottoms. “How about we host your next story hour? @City of Atlanta – let’s make it happen!”

Bottoms invited the drag queen to read to young children at city hall after support for the event to be held at an Alpharetta library branch was pulled. Steven Igarashi-Ball, a 40-year-old Buford native who performs in drag as Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he feels the Fulton library system discriminated against him. The system is reportedly allowing ...

A new study shows that half of American pastors worry about preaching on hot button social issues - like abortion and LGBTQ issues - worried they might offend someone. Pastor Corey Brooks, Pastor Michael Youssef, and Pastor Ron Lewis open up on "Fox & Friends" about the pressures facing worship leaders around the nation after the Barna Group published the results earlier this year.

While the majority of pastors agree their job is to help Christians have biblical beliefs about specific issues, many feel added pressure from outside and within the church and are struggling to figure out how to ...
