Chuck Norris' dire warning for America - 2012

Chuck Norris Fact No. 39: Chuck Norris stared evil in the eye and it went into hiding.
America's favorite action star is doing just that this election -- calling on evangelical Christians across the nation to join him in crushing the creep of socialism under President Obama.

Norris and his wife, Gena, have filmed a public service announcement, unveiled exclusively at WND, wherein the two urge Christians to help save the country in November.

We are here to talk about a growing concern we all share, Chuck Norris explains. If we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack. We're at a tipping point and, quite possibly, our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don't change the course in which our country is headed.

Gena warns that voter apathy among evangelicals in 2008 may have contributed to Obama's election in the first place.

With our country at a crossroads, Chuck and I have asked ourselves what we can be doing to help support this great country we're blessed to live in and how we can encourage our like-minded American brothers and sisters to unite and let their voices be heard, she said. It is estimated that in the 2008 election, 30 million evangelical Christians stayed home on voting day and Obama won the election by 10 million votes.

Chuck cautions Christians about the cost of doing nothing while the nation spirals into a state of socialism from which there will be no return.

We know you love your family and your freedom as much as Gena and I do, he says in his appeal to Americans. And it is because of that we can no longer sit quietly or stand on the sidelines and watch our country go the way of socialism or something much worse.

Gena urged Christians to register and cast their votes on Election Day to ensure our voices will be heard.

Chuck recalled the cautionary words of great patriots on the subject of preserving liberty:

As Edmund Burke said, 'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men and women do nothing.'

Our great president, Ronald Reagan said, 'Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.'

Likewise, Gena noted, President Reagan went on to say that 'You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.'

Chuck Norris concludes the announcement by encouraging Americans to close ranks and defend their great nation for God and country.

Please stand with us, he urges. Let's unite for God and country. And may God continue to bless the United States of America. See you at the polls.

Norris has been writing a weekly column exclusively for WND since Oct. 23, 2006. The star of Walker: Texas Ranger and some of the biggest action pictures ever, Norris has also reached a new generation as part of the Internet craze for one-liners usually labeled not as jokes but as facts.

In The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book, Norris gives readers not only his favorite facts, roundhouse-kicked by the man himself, but also the stories behind the facts and the code by which he lives his life.

In his bestselling book, Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America, Norris provides real solutions for solving the nation's problems, moving the country forward and changing its course for the better.

Feeding Moloch: The Sacrifice of Children on the Altar of Capitalism

Russell Banks, one of the United States's most celebrated writers of contemporary fiction, delivers the 2014 Ingersoll Lecture on Immortality at Harvard Divinity School.

Banks argues that immortality, if it exists, lies with people's descendants—their children, and their children’s children, and on. In the modern era, he states, it has become increasingly difficult to protect children from dangerous forces in the world. Today, children have become the largest single segment of the consumer economy.

Colossians 3 - The Spoken Word Series

We aim to speak our personal truths in light of the Truth that is Jesus Christ.

Colossians 3 (

The difficulty with faith, is that there is no immediate answer
You could be a Christian, Muslim, or Jew, and all have the same master.
And if you think about it, We're all really the same
It's the collective unconscious, Individuals doing actions for immediate satisfaction
in a life full of distractions, disguised as attractions,
for a world that is only a fraction, of His.
And what will plague the west won't be a viral disease
It's something arguably much worse, It's spiritual apathy.
Because we are too content with mediocre contentment.
The Bible has horror, romance, action, all the genres of today
but instead of Jesus Christ, Women want a guy like Christian from Fifty Shades of Grey.
Canadians abort babies, instead of having them baptised,
When elsewhere in the world, if you have too many you'll be chastised.
Come on, don't succumb to the fake, the false, and the lies.
Why don't you reach your true potential, with the way, the truth, and the light?
How can you reject an Everlasting Love? or say that it is yet to be seen?
Man, I got a stone cold stunner for you, why don't you go read John 3:16?
And no I'm not saying it's gonna be easy, or that all your issues are gonna crumble,
but why don't you find beauty in the fact that this is the daily common struggle?
You could be a Saint, a sinner, or the next prodigal son,
You can have ninety-nine problems, but your God sure ain't one.

The Cost of Freedom: How Disagreement Makes Us Civil (Robert George, Cornel West, Rick Warren)

Getting along through disagreement is never easy. Preserving the freedom to think and learn and grow comes with a cost. But what if the disagreement itself is valuable for us? What if the cost of freedom isn’t what we expect? And how can we all become the kinds of citizens who know how to disagree without it destroying us?

Robert George and Cornel West are coming together as friends who disagree for a conversation on this important topic moderated by Rick Warren. George, West, and Warren are internationally recognized leaders from three very different communities who don’t see eye to eye on everything, but have the same fundamental concern for truth and justice.

This event was co-sponsored by Torrey Honors Institute and the Biola University Center for Christian Thought.

Eric Ludy - Depraved Indifference

» Depraved Indifference is a short film produced by Bravehearted Christian (formerly Ellerslie Mission Society). For more details, download and licensing information, and to discover other great resources for a Christianity that actually works, please visit:

God is looking for more than money from His saints—He is looking for the entirety of their lives to be spent on the weak and needy. It is estimated that there are over 153 million orphans worldwide—and how we treat the least of these is how we ultimately treat our God. Yet many of us suffer from a depraved indifference. In this short film, Eric Ludy declares that the solution is Jesus Christ but God wants to rescue the weak and helpless by using our lives. Are you willing for Jesus to use your hands and feet—to use your strength on behalf of the weak, needy, destitute, orphan, and widow around the world?

Divided America: young less united than in past

(22 Aug 2016) Known as millennials, a massive and diverse generation of young Americans have the potential to shape the upcoming US presidential race - as they did for the current president, Barack Obama.
But are they as united - and as motivated to influence the election this time?
America's oldest millennials - nearing 20 when airplanes slammed into the World Trade Center — can remember the economic prosperity of the 1990s, and when a different Clinton ran for president.
The younger end of the generation - now nearing 20 - can't recall a time without terrorism or economic worry.
Now millennials have edged out baby boomers as the largest living generation in US history, and more than 75 million have come of age.
With less than three months to Election Day, the values of young Americans are an unpredictable grab bag; what they share is a palpable sense of disillusionment.
The Associated Press interviewed several millennial voters in four states where the generation could have an outsized influence this November.
They are a mosaic, from a black Nevada teen voting for the first time to a married white Christian couple in Ohio.
The issues raised ranged from economic opportunities to women's rights to campaign finance reform and the national debt.
Recent surveys confirm that, beyond a common concern about access to and the cost of education — and a general disdain for labels, like millennials — this generation is hard to peg this time around.
Briana Lawrence, a 21-year-old videographer and eyelash artist from North Carolina, says she's excited by the upcoming election but also finds the prospect a little scary.
A recent North Carolina Central University graduate, she's voting for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
She was just seven years old on 11 September 2001, and the aftermath of the attacks is the only time she remembers the nation feeling united.
Today, that unity is hard to achieve when people like her begin adulthood thousands of dollars in debt.
Economic issues are of huge important to millennials, since many are saddled with student loans and struggle to find jobs.
Only eight percent of millennials feel their household's financial situation is very good, according to a poll by GenForward.
Bill and Kristi Clay, parents of two young boys and devout Christians from rural Ohio, have struggled to pick a presidential candidate who matches their values.
Kristi opposes same-sex marriage and abortion and names those as important issues, yet the 32-year-old school librarian reluctantly leans toward Clinton, because she feels Republican candidate Donald Trump is materialistic and prefers the Democratic views on immigration and poverty.
Though she and her 33-year-old husband are feeling somewhat pessimistic about this election, both say they will vote anyway. although Bill remains undecided.
Whether their millennial brethren do the same is unknown; some are disenchanted that progressive Bernie Sanders, who ran against Clinton in the Democratic primary, is out of the race.
Diana Downard, who's working to get out the vote in Colorado, is confident that young people will turn out to vote - even those who don't particularly support either candidate.
The 26-year-old says that while millennials have previously been characterised as potentially apathetic they in fact share a nuanced understanding of the political world.
However, that may not lead them to vote for the same candidate.
Trip Nistico, a recent law school graduate in Colorado, plans to vote for Trump.
Worried how the U.S. national debt will impact his generation's future, he says there should be more room for conservative opinions on college campuses.
Brien Tillett, who recently graduated from a Las Vegas high school, is 18.

Andrew Hartman: The Culture Wars Then and Now

Steve and Corey talk to Andrew about his new introduction to his book “The War for the Soul of America.”  While the left largely won the culture wars, the three wonder whether the pendulum has swung so far left that many liberals are alienated by today’s cultural norms.

Other topics: Was the left’s victory in the debate over the college curriculum pyrrhic? Is identity politics a necessary step in liberation or a problematic slide toward greater division or both? Are current students too sensitive, and easily triggered, to take the fight to the Billionaire class?
