Bloomberg Too?

Think we need another candidate running for president this year? We may get another one! Various reports indicate that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a third-party bid for president. If he runs, polling suggests Bloomberg would get about 13% with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton essentially tied at 37% and 36% respectively. But that really doesn’t tell you much because the presidency is won in the Electoral College, which is based on individual state results. For example, does Bloomberg carry New York, taking that state out of the Democrats’ column?

If Bloomberg does decide to run, it could make an already crazy year even crazier!

Graham Tackles Faulty Faculty

You’ll probably recall the recent controversy at Wheaton College, often described as the evangelical Harvard. Dr. Larycia Hawkins, a professor at Wheaton, decided to wear the hijab out of sympathy for the plight of Muslims in America. (Muslim women have objected to such displays and the reason may surprise you.)

Wheaton suspended Dr. Hawkins, not for wearing the hijab, but for issuing a statement saying that Christians and Muslims worshipped the same god. As Wheaton noted, the God of the Bible is of a completely different nature than the god of the Koran. The relationship of the God of the Bible to man is a completely different relationship than that of the god of the Koran to mankind.

When Hawkins refused to further discuss the matter with Wheaton officials, the college began the process of terminating her contract. But last week, the faculty council at Wheaton College unanimously voted to support Dr. Hawkins and called on the administration to withdraw its plans to fire her.

Noting that his parents met at Wheaton, Reverend Franklin Graham blasted the faculty council for its faulty reasoning. In a Facebook post Saturday, Graham wrote:

“I’m surprised and disappointed that the faculty council there is now recommending the college drop their plans to terminate a professor who published that she believed Islam and Christianity worship the same God in December. This is no minor issue that should be debated… I can tell you — Islam and Christianity clearly do not worship the same God. How the faculty council can now support this professor being allowed to teach students is deeply concerning.”
