New Stanek poll: Which Republican would you like to see run for president?

It’s that time already. So I have a new poll question up. Good time to get an initial sense:

Which Republican would you like to see run for president in 2016?

Here were the results of my last poll regarding religious preferences in marriage partners (click to enlarge):

March for Life expands direction

The-March650uphill-640x285 (1)

With attendance estimated to range between 200,000 to 500,000, the March for Life is the largest annual civil rights event in the world.

NellieatpodiumFor 40 years, founder Nellie Gray, pictured right, dedicated herself to the March for Life. “The last call she made before she died was about the March,” new M4L president Jeanne Monahan told me in an interview. Jeanne was appointed to her position after Nellie passed away in August 2012.

Jeanne and her team are now exploring ways to expand on Nellie’s vision and to capitalize on the innate power M4L holds. With advances online, in texting, and social media, I’ve hoped for the day when M4L would tap into the strength of its vast yearly crowd of mostly young people to promote the sanctity of life year-round in a greater capacity. Jeanne agrees. “We want to make March for Life a year-round thing,” she quipped.

  • NBC/Wall Street Journal has a new poll out on abortion and Roe v. Wade. The poll results again show that large swaths of the population (41%) in this poll don’t know anything about Roe v. Wade, and when the pollsters give an inaccurate description (“first three month” baloney) of Roe’s results, the majority are opposed to overturning it. 31% claimed they thought abortion should always be legal which seems high. Imagine this follow-up: “So you think it should be legal to have an abortion in the 8th month of pregnancy?”The poll’s options seem to favor the pro-choice side as the pro-choice options are “always legal” or “legal most of the time” while the pro-life options are “illegal without exceptions” and “illegal with rape/incest/mother’s life exceptions.” There is a rather large gap and many plausible positions between legal “most of the time” and illegal except for exceptions.

  • The Hill reports Nancy Keenan will step down as the leader of NARAL:

    She plans to stay on at NARAL through the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — which happens to fall just a day after Inauguration Day. The organization hasn’t picked a successor yet.
  • Christianity Today interviews Southern Baptist Theological Seminary dean Russell Moore about “why adoption has become his personal cause and why more evangelicals should be joining him.”

Mega-church pastor: Evangelicals warming to Romney for 3 big reasons

I had no reason to think that evangelicals would be any more enthused about Mitt Romney than they were about John McCain. But over the last 11 months three developments have changed my mind about Romney’s appeal to evangelical voters. First, many evangelical Christians are incensed by the Obama administration’s relentless assaults on religious freedom…. […]

Interview: “2016” filmmaker ties Obama’s abortion support to his anti-colonialist beliefs

My husband and I saw the film 2016: Obama’s America last night.

2016 is based on Dinesh D’Souza’s 2010 best-selling book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage. The movie was advertised on this site for several weeks.

Both the book and movie attempt to make sense of Obama’s otherwise inexplicable decisions as president by tying them to his anti-colonialist roots and subsequent belief system. Both of Obama’s parents were anti-colonialists, as was his adolescent mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and several of his professors and adult peers, particularly Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

2016 is a box office hit. As of this weekend 2016 had grossed $18.2 million, making it the highest grossing conservative documentary of all time. 2016 still has a ways to go to compete with its liberal competitor, Fahrenheit 9/11, which grossed $119.2 million.

We found 2016 quite compelling. If nothing else, Obama’s childhood and adult ideological influences would shock American sensibilities.

But I left the movie with a question: How does Obama’s anti-colonial beliefs play into his radical pro-abortion beliefs?

Evangelicals and Catholics unite against HHS mandate

Before Wheaton’s move, most plaintiffs suing over the mandate were Catholic colleges and organizations that follow the Vatican’s teaching against birth control. Most of the 58 plaintiffs in the 24 lawsuits are Catholic dioceses, colleges and charity groups. But Wheaton’s involvement shows that Catholics aren’t alone in opposing the mandate, since many evangelical Christians view […]
