11863628-mitch-hescox

by The Rev. Mitch Hescox President Obama got it exactly right last night at the beginning of his State of the Union address when he said it is the hard-working citizens of our great nation that make the state of our Union strong, and that the United States is the best positioned country in the world to succeed in the 21st Century.

Will We Get Moral Leadership on Climate?

by the Rev. Mitch Hescox Yesterday, the President issued a challenge on climate change during Tuesday's State of the Union Address.

What Does Pro-Life Mean?

by Mitch Hescox As Focus on the Family so beautifully depicts in the video below on the Dignity of Life "When we talk about being "pro-life," it's not just about a political issue. It's a worldview . . . it's a life-view." Pro-life is so much more than being against abortion, it's also about protecting humanity from poverty, human trafficking, and for us the threats from pollution.
