Israel Has a Responsibility to the Kurds

Victor Sharpe

There is a people who, like the Jews, can trace their ancestry in their homeland back thousands of years.

J. Matt Barber

Churches in Denmark are now compelled, by law, to host same-sex “weddings.” America is next. Tyranny’s appetite is insatiable. The secular-left’s hunger for power and control over its detractors can never be satisfied. To outwardly succumb and affirmatively capitulate to their pagan demands will never be enough. Here is some advice on what pastors could and perhaps should do if the state tries to force them to preside over counterfeit weddings.


Stemming the Tide of ‘Progress’

Ken Connor

Many people, when they hear talk of the growing "war on Christianity," roll their eyes and dismiss the charges as mere political hyperbole designed to fire up the values voters come election time.

Truth On Our Side?

Guest Author

One of the primary critiques of religion popular among New Atheists and secularists generally is that it is arrogant and close-minded for any group to claim a monopoly on Truth. The idea that a divine creator had a plan and ordered things a certain way, that he (or she, or it) revealed the Truth to an elect group and that all mankind will be judged by how closely they aligned their lives with the Truth... nothing could be more offensive to the secular progressive worldview. On the contrary, secular progressives claim the mantle of open-mindedness and tolerance.

Tom Toth

Republicans have been gifted the opportunity to set themselves up for a landslide victory in the 2014 midterms, thanks exclusively to another one of Obama’s lawless pen and phone executive actions.

Hidden Agenda, or Behind-the-Scene Strategy?

Guest Author

A few weeks ago, President Obama was yukking it up with some people about how the Democrats could win the midterm elections, but it would require liberals doing something a bit like Hillary did: move. In pure and simple terms, he wanted young liberals to move to red states, for the purpose of destroying the conservative strongholds.


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
