When the body of a people are altogether corrupt in their manners, the government is ripe for dissolution. Good laws may hold the rotten bark some longer together, but in a little time all laws must give way to the tide of popular opinion, and be laid prostrate under universal practice. Hence it clearly follows that the teachers and rulers of every religious denomination are bound mutually to each other, and to the whole society, to watch over the manners of their several members. — John Witherspoon, signer of the Declaration of Independence, “The Works of the Rev. John Witherspoon”, (Edinburgh: J. Ogle, 1815), Vol. IV, pp. 266-267, from “A Sermon Delivered at a Public Thanksgiving after Peace”

Reality or Make-Believe: ‘Civil Rights’ in Ferguson

Michael Peroutka

Despite man’s attempt to defy gravity, it is immutable. Obviously, we can see clearly that the law of gravity, one of the physical laws of the universe, is not within our power to ignore or to repeal. We really can’t break it without getting broken by it.

Justice the Guardian of Liberty

David Whitney

There is a monster loose in America. It is a tyrannical monster whose perfidy grows every day. He is intelligent, educated at the most elite institutions and is holding some of the most powerful and prestigious positions in our land. He’s at his worst when all decked out in black. In the past month alone by means of its multitude of tentacles this monster has conducted a coordinated attack on the most ancient and most valuable of human institution, the one that pre-dates everything short of the first six days of creation.

Obama ‘JV’ Performance Damages Global Security, Costs Lives

Billy and Karen Vaughn

After finally choosing to view the barbaric, on-camera beheading of freelance war correspondent James Foley, I’ve been left with a level of rage known only to those of us who have sacrificed unspeakable offerings on the altar of world peace. My offering was my only son—Aaron Carson Vaughn. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team VI. He was killed in action when a CH47D Chinook, carrying thirty Americans and eight Afghans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan on August 6, 2011.

The Loss of Christian Empathy

Ken Connor

A great problem in our modern culture is our lack of connection to our neighbors. This is particularly troubling when we see it among Christian conservatives. Of all religious and political combinations, Americans claiming to be both Christian and conservative ought to be immensely other-oriented. After all, for the Christian, the second greatest commandment is "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

How Those Who Call Themselves Christians Should Vote

Bob Ellis

There are few duties of the Christian in the secular world than casting a wise and trustworthy vote. Samuel Adams was clear on this solemn duty of the Christian voter: “Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual–or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country. ”

"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
