“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

THE CHARACTER ASSASSINATION OF BRETT KAVANAUGH
As decision day on Brett Kavanaugh draws near, the Democrats are getting desperate to stop his appointment to the Supreme Court. They are even prepared to highlight the dubious accusation of a woman who stepped forward to accuse him of sexual assault over 30 years ago when they were teenagers. The claim is unsubstantiated and Judge Kavanaugh has categorically denied it.
Christine Blasey Ford accuses Brett Kavanaugh of groping her while he was in a drunken state at a teen party when he was seventeen years old. It would be a case of he-said-she-said, if it was not for the only alleged eyewitness Mark Judge. Ford claims he was present. Mr. Judge says her sex assault claim is completely false, and Ford is lying. Over the next few days, watch to see if the Democrats will try to suppress or ignore Mr. Judge's word and accentuate Ms. Ford's allegation.
We must ask a few questions: Why did Christine Ford come forward with this accusation now, after three decades? Might the answer have something to do with her anti-Trump political activism? (She reported wore a pink brain "pussy hat" at an anti-Trump rally.)
Why are the Democrats so wholeheartedly embracing an unsubstantiated allegation without establishing its veracity? The answer might lie in the fact that the Democratic Party cares less about truth than winning. They are not above trumping up false allegations to discredit opponents or people with whom they disagree (pun intended). We need only remember Roy Moore, Justice Neil Gorsuch and even further back to Justice Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork.
Should Christine Blasey Ford be heard? Absolutely! But If her allegation against Brett Kavanaugh does not hold up to scrutiny, and her testimony proves to be false, then Christine Blasey Ford's behaviour must be utterly condemned by people of all political stripes! It would tarnish the real testimony of women who have been sexually assaulted. It would possibly even hurt the #MeToo movement. That would be wrong and an injustice to Justice Brett Kavanaugh!
