Pastors must take back civil rights movement

Star Parker

The purging of Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin from performing at a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech should serve as yet another wakeup call to Christian black Americans. Political correctness and a militant campaign to delegitimize religion and traditional values in America have become more important than our constitutionally guaranteed rights to freedom of speech and religion.

The Silence of American Feminists is Deafening

Ken Connor

The airwaves are clogged and mailboxes stuffed with the message that the crusty old white men who comprise the GOP are engaged in a "war on women." Meanwhile, half a world away a fourteen-year-old Pakistani girl, Malala Yousafzai, is fighting for her life after being shot in the head for defying the Taliban by speaking up for women's education. For some strange reason, American feminists don't seem all that bothered by the fact that in many countries Muslim women are treated as second class citizens.

Ferguson: Seeking Justice in an Immoral World

Bob Ellis

The news has now hit the streets that the grand jury in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of "gentle giant" Michael Brown has examined the evidence, and rejected five offered charges against Officer Darren Wilson. So the logical response of the Left is to burn the city of Ferguson to the ground. That's what happens in a nation whose god is its belly.

Jonathan Gruber: Lies and Glue

Michael Peroutka

Frederick Bastiat, in his famous work “The Law”, wrote that “no society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree.” The way to make laws respected, Bastiat said, “is to make them respectable.” But “when law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”

Everywhere we look, the foundational underpinnings of our once-free, once-prosperous society are being encroached upon by government’s emboldened totalitarian impulses.

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
