Bill Clinton Supported Religious Freedom

Bill Clinton Supported Religious Freedom

Let us never believe that the freedom of religion imposes on any of us some responsibility to run from our convictions. Let us instead respect one another’s faiths, fight to the death to preserve the right of every American to practice whatever convictions he or she has, but bring our values back to the table of American discourse to heal our troubled land.

Indiana: War on Christian Values Out in the Open

Indiana: War on Christian Values Out in the Open

Indiana is now the crossroads of the war against morality, freedom and Christian values in the public square. As Indiana passes a bill to protect religious freedom in the face of multiple attacks on it across our nation–like the U.S. Congress and a Democrat President did some 20 years ago, and many states have done since then–homosexual activists are coming out of the woodwork to demonize religious liberty.

Accusing God of Bigotry, Hate Speech, And Child Abuse

As secular controls increase and open hostility toward Christianity advances, our freedom to faithfully teach and practice our beliefs will continue to fall prey to greater obstructions and outright interference by a liberal political machine intent on dismantling our Judeo-Christian foundation. We are seeing plenty of evidence of this in our current day. Anyone who dares to declare (no matter how compassionate the approach) a belief that runs counter to the liberal social agenda, better be prepared to face the wrath of the social progressives.

Politicizing the Religious War

Politicizing the Religious War

The first step is acceptance. We must first admit there is a problem. There is a bitter struggle occurring that affects and intersects with all aspects of human existence. This is a battle for free thought. We are fighting for the opportunity of a fair hearing and a free and open exchange of ideas

A Bold Proposal for Conservative GOP Candidates

These last few GOP horse races have been jam-packed with would-be conservative presidents who, after infighting with largely simpatico opponents, have canceled each other out, limped off to lick their wounds and left the perpetually underwhelmed GOP base to stay home and not vote for “imminently electable” establishment paragons like Presidents Dole, McCain and Romney. Divide and conquer. That’s how the “moderate” RINO establishment plays the primary. And then they lose the general.

Ted, Monica, and Mickey

Ted Cruz is making a bet that the center of gravity of America can and should move. That our youth need to hear that every moment matters, that there is right and wrong, that choices have consequences for which they must take personal responsibility. And that is what really defines the essence of freedom.

Where Reverence Meets Perfection

Where Reverence Meets Perfection

Arlington is the place where men and women in the hundreds of thousands, who have made the ultimate sacrifice for you and me, have been laid to rest. It is also a place of remembrance of the price paid for the freedoms for every American. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most honorable place to be buried, and the most sobering. It is the most hallowed of ground.

Now is the Time to Fight for Freedom

Now is the Time to Fight for Freedom

It is not delusional to expect elected officials to keep their word. When a politician says they will fight tooth and nail for something, it is reasonable to expect that they will. It is not delusional to expect an elected official who put his or her hand on a Bible and swore an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States to do that.

Covetousness as Idolatry

Covetousness as Idolatry

Consider the multi-billion dollar industry of Madison Avenue. It is devoted to manipulating people to desire things they probably cannot afford, so that they buy things they do not need to impress people they don’t even care about. How do we oppose this lure of covetousness in our own heart, how do we oppose the politics of covetousness in our culture?
