Actual news story: President Trump spoke Friday to the Value Voters Summit, an annual convention of Christian conservatives. Newsweek version of that same story: “President Trump to Speak at Hate Group’s Annual Event.”

Newsweek’s editors seem to have learned the same trick as the leaders of the radical left group Antifa: claim that you’re fighting fascists, and then brand anyone who disagrees with you as a fascist. For the record: no, the summit’s sponsor, the Family Research Center, is not a “hate group” (a name that could more aptly apply to the Southern Poverty Law Center, whose slanderous attacks on the FRC as a “hate group” inspired an unstable man to try to launch a mass shooting in the FRC’s office.)

Christians believe in the power of love, not hate. Well, I take that back: we do hate being called “haters” when we don’t hate anyone. We love the sinner, but hate the sin. Especially when the sin is falsely branding someone a hater who doesn’t hate anything other than being falsely accused of hate.

So Newsweek, go forth and sin no more! To make it easier for you, I suggest reading the Bible more often instead of press releases from the SPLC.

    It is too bad that Newsweek does not educate people about the First Amendment. It applies to Christians, too! So, hate groups try to tell Christians what they should say, believe, etc. The First Amendment applies to MY beloved President: Donald John Trump, Sr., as well. So I fully support every breath he takes, every thought he has, every drop of water he consumes, every bite of food he eats; because he loves me back!

    I've never liked Newsweek. I'd boycott them but since I never read them they would never know they were being boycotted.

    Wouldn't that make those people a "hate group"...

    I also love reading your newsletters and commentaries. I go through my emails and delete all the JUNK eMail I'm getting, but I always save your newsletters in a "Huckabee" folder in my email so I can go back and re-read them at my leisure. Your voice is the voice of reason and common sense (or should I say UNcommon sense because common sense died when political correctness entered the picture!). Your voice brings a sense of calm in a whipped up, frenzied world of deceit, lies, and nonsense being spewed by main stream media and the liberal left. Also, I've noticed how your daughter remains calm when being questioned by the White House corps. of reporters about some ridiculous "story" that was on Tweeter, Facebook, or being circulated by MSM. She must have inherited that trait from you. Keep up the good work. God bless you and your family.

    Mr. McCune. The quote is:

    REV2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

    To say that God hates sinners is in conflict with the gospel itself.

    Sir, Thank you so much for your comments on this subject. While I do not read Newsweek I know now I wont be looking for it anywhere. While they, along with the left, may think we as Christians are haters they will all bow to our Lord in the end times. I remember a passage in Isaiah that lets me know that even they will do so:
    22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
    23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
    24 Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. Isaiah 45: 22-23

    I would love for someone to survey NFL players as to which news stations they watch. I guarantee a majority would say CNN and BET. It is then no wonder so many have an emotionally-driven negative attitude about standing for our national anthem. Those stations promote the idea of police brutality against blacks. We Fox Watchers care about facts and are educated to listen to both sides and to respect history, so it doesn't repeat itself. Overall, NFL players lack that kind of civic education. Soros is helping them remain emotionally ignorant. That is why I wear the shirt: NFL = No Fans Left. God bless you, Mike, and your family - especially your amazing daughter! :)

    Mike, you have such a wonderful way with words. I love reading everything you write. You seem to really have your finger on the pulse of America.

    Newsweek chose sides in a culture war when they didn't have to. I read the article referred to here, and it was an lazy, amateur hack job. Newsweek will likely go the way of the other news outlets who have sacrificed objectivity and professionalism to placate the intimidating Left - down the sewer.

    Thank you for your articles and for helping to keep me sane and focused. I hate no one that I am aware of, but I am beginning to feel like I am hated by people and publishers that I have never met. In fact, I am beginning to understand that actually they fear me.....a Christian...because I refuse to hate but to only love as God has commanded me to love....but to hate the sin and what sin does to others. Thank you for your work. I appreciate your daily articles and the common sense you express. And that you stand fast in your Christian faith. It means more to us than you know.

    So Newsweek is no longer fit for its role in the digital news market place? I thought after stopping the printed version in 2012 that they just might straighten up, but they just didn't wake up, after their print lost it's only use in the outhouse.

    I truly love all your articles. Not only do they always call a spade a spade, but your humorous ending comments always make me chuckle (and sometimes laugh out loud). These commentaries are my favorite articles to read each and every day. I forward them to my friends! Keep up the good work and God Bless You.
