Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine …. Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other. — James Wilson, signer of the Declaration, member of the Continental Congress, constructor of the Constitution, one of the original Supreme Court justices appointed by President George Washington.

Should Christians Be Politically Active?

Gina Miller

Are some correct in their claim that Christians should not be politically active? This is a question with which many Christians have struggled, due to the lack of overt New Testament admonitions to do so. Yet how many Christians throughout history, inspired by the fire of God’s Word in their spirits, have stood firmly against evil actions by civil governments? Were they wrong?

George Washington Condemns the Modern GOP

Bob Ellis

As I was reading and reflecting on George Washington's Farewell Address of 1796 today, it hit me like a soft ton of bricks how prescient President Washington was some 218 years ago. He warned against and soundly condemned the behavior that has unfortunately become the very heart and soul of the "Republican" agenda today.

Lefty and Righty’s ‘Fake Fight’

Michael Peroutka

You notice two men fighting in your front yard. They are pushing and shoving and punching each other as they stumble up your driveway. Shouting and cursing at each other, they crash through your front door and continue the mayhem right into your living room. Suddenly, from another part of the house, you hear a thud of a door slamming and you realize with horror that while you were distracted by the fake fight in the front room, someone has made it out the back door with the contents of your safe, everything that you have ever worked for.

Thinking Reasonably Part 2

Dale Pflug

Did you ever have someone tell you that something was too political, or that they hate to discuss politics? If you mention the word politics, you will probably offend at least one person in any group. To shut off a conversation, just say “sorry, but I don’t talk about politics”.

Thinking Reasonably, Part 1

Dale Pflug

Maybe people just don't know appreciate the importance of argument. The British Parliament is a wonderful example of how to argue. Sometimes fistfights even break out! You might call that "argument with style". Let's start with Webster's definition of the word itself. "Argument: a statement, reason, or fact for or against a point. An address or composition intended to convince or persuade". When you go back to the United States Founding Fathers, they were skilled users of argument.

An Open Letter to the Next Generation of Patriots

Steve Deace

It is the harmonic convergence of faith (your principles) and reason (tactics) that creates political success. If your principles/tactics are in conflict with one another you’re doing it wrong. When they complement one another you’re doing it right. If you don’t learn this lesson before it’s too late you become either “grump guy” or “groupie guy.”

…And The Pulpits Are Silent

Dave Daubenmire

Despite what the political parties would like you to believe, the problem in America is not the politicians, it is the pulpits. I hate to break the news to you, but most of America’s pulpits are filled with cowardly men. They are a shame to the Christ they claim to serve.

Play to Win, or Don’t Bother

Bob Ellis

Steve Deace has a great column at BarbWire, and it exposes...the lack of seriousness and dereliction of duty on the part of Christians and conservatives. You see, we on the Right face an enemy that understands we are in a war of good and evil (and they are Hell-bent on pursuing evil); they aren't fooled (by their own propaganda aimed at us) that politics is a game, or a social exercise, or a sport, or a friendly disagreement about how to get things done.

No Political Fix to America’s Death Spiral

J. Matt Barber

I’m never going to win a popularity contest. It’s not my goal to be liked. I’ll probably never be a “Fox News contributor” or even broadly recognized as a dutifully compliant cog within the greater, GOP-heavy “conservative” political wheel. That’s because I say things like this: There is no political fix to America’s death spiral.

Climate Zealots Play the Race Card

Bill Wilson

You can't argue with global warming zealots: Whatever the thermometer reads, they're right and you're wrong. Whatever the short-term, intermediate or long-term data suggest, all these eco-radicals see is additional proof of their distorted worldview. Hot summers? Mild winters? That's global warming. Mild summers? Frigid winters? That's global warming, too.

Americans concerned about declining influence of religion

Star Parker

Over the last 12 years, the percentage of Americans that think religion is losing influence in American life has increased dramatically. In 2002, 52 percent of those surveyed said religion is losing influence. In 2014, 72 percent of Americans said religion is losing influence. However, while increasing numbers of Americans feel religion is losing influence, most feel this is a bad thing.

Cheapened Christianity and Fraudulent Faith

A.J. Castellitto

I have a bad habit of entertaining things that present themselves as "Christian." Unfortunately, once you get past the label (a mere marketing and recruitment ploy), there is little left in terms of faithful distinction for those things deceptively deemed 'Christian.'

Appreciating Donor Advised Funds

David John Marotta

Americans give over $300 billion to charity annually. One of the best tools developed over the past few decades to help facilitate this generosity is the rise of Donor Advised Funds (DAFs). The first DAFs were set up in the 1930s, but they did not become popular until financial services companies made them available to a mass market in the 1990s.

A Lesbian’s Eyes Opened: ‘You Don’t Hate Us!’

J. Matt Barber

“Projections have shown that if current trends continue, half of all gay and bisexual men will be HIV-positive by age 50.” – The Wall Street Journal, Sept. 25, 2014. This jaw-dropping revelation is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest assessment of the homosexual lifestyle. The WSJ report further warns: “Gay and bisexual men represent an estimated 2 percent of the U.S. population but more than half of all people living with HIV and 66 percent of new HIV infections. They are the only population group in the United States for which HIV infections are rising.”

"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
