As Christians, are we showing a public image of love and grace? Or do non-believers see us as judgmental, critical and selfish? Read More...

Pope Francis has brought new spirit into the Church with his humble lifestyle and direct and often challenging commentary on world affairs and personal ethics.

Sherrod Brown Ohio Sen
Members of the House of Representatives get hundreds of thousands of dollars in farm subsidies yet want to cut food stamps.
15 members of Congress got farm subsidies in 2012, including Rep. Steve Fincher of Tennessee, who has collected nearly $3.5 million in subsidies since 1999; Rep. Doug LaMalfa of California and his wife own one third of DSL LaMalfa Family Partnership, which in 2012 alone got $188,570; Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana has received $196,268 in farm subsidies since 1997.
Charlie Sykes
"The number of Americans who receive means-tested government benefits -- welfare -- now outnumbers those who are year-round full-time workers."
On his radio show, he used old data and failed to note the large numbers of children and elderly in the recipient group. Also there was at least one person working in almost 3/4 of the recipient households
Bill O'Reilly
Since 1965, the United States has spent 'untold trillions' yet the poverty rate hasn’t budged.
Actually the poverty rate has fallen and plummeted for some groups
Billy Graham
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Country was not written by Graham

This was previously attributed to Paul Harvey, but was written in 1996 by Bob Russell for a Kentucky Governor's Prayer Breakfast, then delivered by Rev. Joe Wright at the Kansas House of Representatives.  Why would a true Christian twist the truth?
Barack Obama
How many of Obama's campaign promises has he kept?
PolitiFact has compiled more than 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns and is tracking their progress on our Obameter45 percent were kept and 25 percent were compromised.  Check it out.

Pope Francis
Pope Francis attacks 'Idolatry Of Money', slams Capitalism, tell the rich to pay their share.
In an 84-page document which is essentially the official platform for his papacy, Pope Francis beseeches politicians to guarantee all citizens "dignified work, education and healthcare". He condemns an economy of exclusion and inequality. Read about his first year.
Michele Bachmann
Of every "three dollars in food stamps for the needy, seven dollars in salaries and pensions (go to) the bureaucrats who are supposed to be taking care of the poor."
Administrative costs for SNAP tops out at 5 percent of program costs, and the scholar behind the statistic she appears to have used as support said Bachmann has misquoted his work.
Pope Francis
Pope Francis Challenges Davos Elite: 'Humanity To Be Served By Wealth, Not Ruled By It'
In a message to more than 2,500 participants at the annual World Economic Forum, the pontiff urged industrialists and bankers to promote inclusive prosperity, but stopped short of chiding them for excesses laid bare by the global financial crisis.
Brian Kilmeade Fox News
Says Colorado food stamp recipients can use ATMs to get cash to buy marijuana.
The technology behind government electronic benefit cards blocks that. While the card could have cash value from another program such as TANF, no ATM would dispense cash based on a person’s food stamp allowance.
Rand Paul
"For every Kentuckian that has enrolled in Obamacare, 40 have been dropped from their coverage."
First, Paul cherry picked data from outdated estimates/ not facts. His figures are not mathematically possible. Using the narrowest definition of "sign-ups," there would have to be 3.3 million cancellations in the state for his figures to be true. In fact, it’s reasonable to argue that more people in Kentucky have coverage through Obamacare than have been canceled.
Democratic Party
Virginia Democratic Party says Virginia House Republicans are sacrificing $5 million a day in U.S. funds by refusing to expand Medicaid.
As many as 400,000 Virginians could become eligible for Medicaid under Obamacare, and the U.S. would pay their entire health care costs through 2016.   But the $5 million-a-day figure comes from an old state estimate. Updated data shows loss of $3.5 million a day for the 2014 budget year, and about $4.5 million a day during the following budget year.
Texas Politics
Texas politics. Check the truth about 200 political claims in this hot Texas election.
Many hotly contested Texas races produced many false claims on both sides of the isle. Check out if your candidate is telling the truth.
Facebook
"Newly Elected Republican Senators Sign Pledge to Eliminate Food Stamp Program in 2015."
But they failed to do due diligence and were snookered, since the story came from a publication that bills itself (quietly) as a "satirical, parody website."
RI Center for Freedom
"Common welfare programs give income of $43,330 or $20.83 an hour."
It's not income as most people think of it. It's how much a poor single parent with two children under age 5 would have to earn to get the equivalent value of all programs, including food stamps, medical care, heating assistance and housing subsidies, plus $6,648 a year in cash assistance.
Terry Jeffrey Cnn News
There were more people on welfare than working in 2013.
The number of "welfare" recipients -- unlike the number of workers -- is enlarged by the inclusion of children and senior citizens. The comparison also ignores that many "welfare" recipients actually work, so trying to separate the two categories creates a false dichotomy.
Stuart Varney, Fox News
"It will cost $50,000 per enrollee in Obamacare over the next 10 years."
This seems to come directly from an article in the Daily Mail. It’s most glaring defect is that it compares a 10-year cumulative total to a single-year snapshot of the number of people who gained insurance.
Texas Democratic Party
Rick Perry failed to "partner with the Legislature to find a Texas solution to closing the insurance coverage gap."
It’s safe to say around a million Texas adults fall into the coverage gap for making too little money to qualify for insurance subsidies and also remaining ineligible for Medicaid unless Texas expands access as encouraged by the Obamacare law and rejected by Perry and the state’s ruling Republicans.
Brian Kilmeade Fox News
Says Colorado food stamp recipients can use ATMs to get cash to buy marijuana.
The technology behind government electronic benefit cards blocks that. While the card could have cash value from another program such as TANF, no ATM would dispense cash based on a person’s food stamp allowance.
ForAmerica
"American families work hard to earn $4,250 a month. Obama is spending $18,972 a month on each illegal immigrant child."
The numbers cited by the meme are framed in a misleading way. The sum of money cited has been allotted to a small fraction of all undocumented immigrant children in the United States, and it isn’t going into their pockets as family earnings are.
John Kasich R-oh
GOP candidate, Kasich, said Ohio "Medicaid is growing at one of the lowest rates in the country.”
In the GOP debate, Kasich defended his decision to accept Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. The Kaiser Family Foundation says Ohio’s growth rate is 3.3 percent between 2010 and 2013, placing it slightly below the national average of four percent. Overall, Ohio ranks 26th out of 50 states.Ohio benefited.
