As Christian evangelicals in the United States grow their support for Israel, conversion of Jews to Christianity continues to be a thorny issue for both Christians and Jews. The Southern Baptist Convention, the largest U.S. Protestant denomination, has made the conversion of Jews official policy, while the San Francisco-based "Jews for Jesus" exists solely to convert Jews to Christianity. Bill McCartney, a former University of Colorado football coach who co-founded the evangelical Promise Keepers movement ... [full story]

A GOP defeat could benefit conservatives, says New Right founding father and king of conservative direct mail, Richard Viguerie "In the early 1990s, they talked about a culture of corruption by the Democrats and how they were abusing their power.
