Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness. — James Wilson, Founder and signer of the Declaration and Constitution

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.

Civil Rights are Part of Judeo-Christian Heritage

William J. Federer

Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote: "One day the South will know that when these disinherited children of God sat down at lunch counters they were standing up for what is best in the American dream and for the most sacred values in our Judeo-Christian heritage."

Honoring the One True God

David Whitney

It is now beyond question that Christianity is under direct assault in the culture war. “The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity to Annise Parker, the city’s first openly daughter of Sodom mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.”

Righteous Anger and Carnal Destruction

A.J. Castellitto

Dark forces are reigning and winning. But are they? I guess it's all a matter of where we stand. Maybe, we should take a cold, hard look where that is exactly. How firm is our foundation? Does our faith lie in a religious institution?

Christian Coalition Publishes Flawed, Incomplete Voter Guide

Bob Ellis

The Christian Coalition emailed me about their 2014 voter guides today. I can't speak to all of them, but the one for South Dakota is flawed and incomplete...an apparent trend among voter guides and endorsements from conservative groups this year.

The Larceny Is Larger than You Think!

Michael Peroutka

Last week the mayor of Houston enraged many Christians when the city subpoenaed the sermons of some Houston area pastors. This got me to thinking…Suppose you wake up tomorrow morning, walk downstairs and find a thief in your living room rifling through your furniture.

We Need a Leaner, Smarter Justice System

Ken Connor

We need a sensible, pragmatic, and effective sentencing process. As with so many failed policies hanging around America's neck like so many millstones, the current system is a result of politics being put ahead of practical wisdom. It is possible to be tough on crime, to protect the American people from the bad guys while using our limited resources wisely and effectively.

"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
