"What Does it Mean to Make America Great Again?" by Dr. Marvin A. McMickle

In a Unite Rochester blog post published in the Rochester, NY Democrat and Chronicle on March 1, 2016, CRCDS President Dr. Marvin A. McMickle asks, "Over and over again in the last few months, groups of Americans have been energized by the phrase 'Make America Great Again.' This term begs the question of when in its past America had been great, what happened to cause America to lose that greatness it had at that time, and what America will look like when it becomes great again?"

What is an Evangelical Christian?

News media and political pundits have been speculating for months about the potential effect that "evangelical Christians" will have on the upcoming 2016 Presidential election.

In a recent Unite Rochester blog post, Dr. McMickle says, "I am writing to clarify the way in which the word evangelical is being misused and distorted in this and so many other election seasons . . . the word evangelical carries absolutely no political connotation whatsoever."
