Richard Patten didn’t just fall off a turnip truck on a Washington, D.C. street day before yesterday. The man has been a mover and shaker on the conservative side of things in this town for a long time.
Patten is also a Christian and he loves this country. For years, he’s been going to the White House and prayer walking there, seeking God’s protection and blessing on this country, regardless of who occupies the Oval Office.
But something un-American has been happening in recent days to Patten. The Secret Service has arrested him, detained him, questioned him in rather intrusive ways, put him in cuffs and seemingly sought to prevent him from exercising his First Amendment right to pray in public at the White House for the president and the nation.
This is happening in America? I avoid making political judgements on HillFaith but I am a passionate believer in the First Amendment for every American. And I’m not aware of any reason to think Patten represents a threat to anybody, much less the most well-protected individual in America.
Watch this video produced by the Daily Caller News Foundation of Patten describing his experiences and explaining why he continues to pray at the White House.
“When I was two, my mom left me on the doorstep of a dope man’s house and she never came back. She left us there on promises that she would come back to pay for the drugs, and she never came back.”
Billy Hallowell, writing at FaithWire, tells us about “Brandy,” who shared her tragic, but ultimately amazing, story with Missy Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame. Robertson’s program on PureFlix is “Restored With Missy Robertson.”
Be forewarned because Brandy’s will make you cry out against the evil that routinely happens in our world, including here in America. But it will also, hopefully, prompt you to rejoice that there is indeed a God who in the fullness of time heals all wounds and makes all things right. Go here.

There’s no such thing as moral absolutes. As long as you don’t hurt anybody else, whatever seems right to you is just fine. Everybody knows that, so do it! That’s the absolute truth.
Well no, it’s not and among the best evidence that it’s not is the fact hardly anybody lives by that maxim, according to Drew Covert of the Tent-Making Christianity blog. But lots of folks profess to believe it, especially when presented with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and their need for Him as their savior.
When you read Covert’s post, don’t miss Professor J. P. Moreland’s story about the student who got an F on an essay on moral relativism because it was written in blue ink. Go here.
Is it really possible to explain the origin of life from non-life without God? Lord knows, smart people like Stephen Hawking and legions of others who deny or ignore the possibility of God as creator have been trying for centuries.
Say what you may about hip-hop star Kanye West, but the evidence is mounting that his conversion to Christ is genuine and is moving him to share the good news of the Gospel in some unexpected places.
