2 of 3 pastors: Schools a 'negative influence' on spirituality
A nationwide study shows that approximately two out of three Protestant pastors believe that schools are detrimentally affecting the spiritual development of students.
A conservative activist is defending a pro-Israel lobbying group that has been under attack by two new radical members of Congress.
The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, sent out an action alert responding to Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic tweets suggesting the U.S. government supports Israel only because of Jewish money.
Omar (pictured above at left) also said at AIPAC pays politicians to be pro-Israel.
Aside from being offensive, divisive and ill-informed, said AIPAC, the congresswoman's assertions are plain wrong.
Cathie Adams, first vice president of Eagle Forum, says she has worked alongside AIPAC during more than 20 years of conservative activism.
"It is an organization who defends the right of Israel to exist," she says, "and for them to be saying now the most vile things about that organization that is above reproach."
Omar issued an apology after being pressured to do some by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but the apology was criticized as a non-apology after it mentioned the "problematic" role of AIPAC as a lobbying group.
Omar compared Israel to a theocratic government, such as Iran, and claimed it is not a democracy, in a Yahoo News interview last month.
A second freshman member of Congress, fellow Muslim Rashida Tlaib (also pictured above), has made headlines by boycotting a trip to Israel for new members sponsored by AIPAC. She wants to take her own delegation to "Palestine."
Adams says both of these congresswomen are out of step and she predicts both of them will present a problem for their own party during the next two years.
