To preserve the government we must also preserve morals. Morality rests on religion; if you destroy the foundation, the superstructure must fall. When the public mind becomes vitiated and corrupt, laws are a nullity and constitutions are waste paper. — Daniel Webster, early statesman, served in the U.S. House and Senate and as Secretary of State

‘Justina’s Law’ Introduced in Wake of Pelletier Nightmare

J. Matt Barber

This is the story of a child, Justina Pelletier, who faced 16 long months of child abuse and incarceration at the hands of both Massachusetts government officials and callous medical personnel at Boston Children’s Hospital. Thankfully, due to the actions of Liberty Counsel, a Christian civil rights law firm, powerful media voices like Glenn Beck and tens of thousands of outraged and outspoken Americans, 16-year-old Justina is now home.

Where is the Godly Father on Father’s Day?

David Pepe

The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation. It is a strong family unit that rests and abides on the moral absolutes of time that will keep and preserve a society from decadence violence and social break down.

Motherhood: Women and Wages

Robert Romano

“[T]here is the issue of marriage and children. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that single women who have never married earned 96 percent of men’s earnings in 2012.The supposed pay gap appears when marriage and children enter the picture," said American Enterprise Institute’s Mark J. Perry and Andrew G. Biggs. It is stating the obvious. Women have babies, and when they do, a significant percentage of them leave the labor force.

Abortion, Parenthood and Responsibility: The Double Standard

Bob Ellis

There is a double standard men face when it comes to abortion, parenthood and responsibility. Don't pro-aborts tell us that a woman shouldn't be forced to become a mother if she doesn't want to? Is the same true of a man? Should a man be forced to become a father if he doesn't want to?

Children are the Path to Successful Tyranny

Michael Peroutka

You can't subjugate a Christian people. They won't stand for it! A Christian culture will recognize and reject tyranny before tyranny can get a foothold. This is because a Biblically-literate and devoted people will not allow their civil government to tyrannically usurp the jurisdictions of self-government, family government, and church government.

Teach Your Children Well

David Whitney

Good fire building techniques are essential not only at the start but throughout the burn cycle. Unless you add fuel to the fire when necessary the fire will go out. It takes constant maintenance to have a fire which continues through the night. Jesus taught us that this was true of the Christian faith; unless we go forth and make disciples the Christian faith would die out on earth.

Raising Children of Light in a Culture of Darkness

J. Matt Barber

In a culture that slaughters the unborn, mocks purity, celebrates sexual sin and makes a joke out of the institution of marriage by imagining sin-based counterfeits, it remains a daunting task for Christian parents to raise children with both the courage and conviction to stand unashamed for God’s truth. From an earthly standpoint, it seems counterintuitive to both welcome and find joy in being hated by the world. Even more, for young people who might prefer popularity over principle – at least for now – the prospect of being “hated by everyone” lacks a certain level of appeal.

Your Safe, Moral Boy Scouts Alternative Is …

J. Matt Barber

It was Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 6, 2013. The huge hall was overflowing, the convention sold out. Over 1,200 attendees, with many spilling out into the foyer, eagerly awaited the announcement. What would this safe, moral and non-sexualized alternative to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) look like? With a stirring introductory video came the answer: “Trail Life USA” would now endeavor to “be the premier national character development organization for young men, which produces godly and responsible husbands, fathers and citizens.”

‘Gay’ Lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll Take Your Children’

J. Matt Barber

Few people doubt that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hopes to become president in 2016. Unfortunately for him, he may have just signed away any chance of that. Last week, Christie signed A3371, a draconian piece of legislation that bars licensed therapists from helping children overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior or identity even when – as is so often the case – those same-sex attractions arise from childhood sexual abuse by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky.

Lies, Damned Lies, and Missing Hard Drives

Ken Connor

If ever a federal agency has made ineptitude into an art form, it has to be the IRS. After months of stonewalling and grandstanding and Fifth Amendment privilege-pleading before congressional committees, Lois Lerner and the IRS are now the subject of a federal lawsuit. In response to charges that they unfairly impeded the tax-exempt application of the organization "True the Vote," for political reasons, the IRS is invoking "the dog ate my homework" defense.

GOP Establishment: We Do Big Government Better

Bob Ellis

Among the Republicans inside-the-Beltway, there's no desire to fight for a smaller government. There's an acceptance of what is, and they claim it's rooted in this is what the American people are voting for.

Rush Was Right: The War on the Suburbs

Robert Romano

“What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?” That was national radio talk show superhost Rush Limbaugh commenting on a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.”

The Power of the Gospel

A.J. Castellitto

The power of the gospel must never be overlooked. It lives in the hearts of men. It annihilates the evil nature and iniquitous disposition. It resides in the heart and soul of Nicky Cruz. Nicky Cruz was a young, cold, heartless, murdering, New York City gang leader when he was subdued by the only power outside the grave that could stop him...

Impeach Barack Obama, the Anti-American, Marxist Fiend

Gina Miller

Whether it’s the insane, deliberate exploding of the welfare rolls, the wicked, near-daily flood of lawlessness from Obama, his administration and federal departments, the treasonous Obama administration-orchestrated illegal alien invasion of our nation from the southern border, the swapping of terrorist enemy combatants for an Army deserter, his EPA’s war on our energy supplies, his war on our military and so much more, we are witnessing the defeat and destruction of the United States of America by enemies within.

"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
