Heart-shaped-box

I never have known the joy of owning a small, pink, heart-shaped music box. In point of fact, I never will. I suppose, with two daughters in the home, that the purchase of such a box might be in the fatherly offing, but it won’t be for my own sake. I am now more than…

Duel

This past weekend was the 210th anniversary of the death of Alexander Hamilton in a duel with Aaron Burr. Commemorations took place around New York City—at the Weehawken, New Jersey dueling site; at Hamilton’s home in upper Manhattan, recently restored and relocated in St. Nicholas Park; and at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, where Burr, who somehow…

The mask is off. All pretense has been dropped, and the anti-Christian left’s boundless depth of hatred for individual liberty, our First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) is now on full display. I wrote last week about the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby opinion, a rather tepid acknowledgement of every American’s non-negotiable…

approval

The president’s shaky approval ratings have been a thing this midterm season. Providing a bit more insight into where those numbers come from, Gallup published a Friday poll looking at President Obama’s approval ratings by religion. And for many Americans, one takeaway was immediately noticeable: by a large percentage, Obama’s strongest support comes from the…

So, a Muslim and an atheist walk into a church. “Who’s taking the service today?” asks the Muslim. “I think it’s my turn,” says the atheist. “You did it last week.” If that happened in a church, we’d probably be outraged – not because we have anything against either Muslims or atheists, but because it…

When Pope Francis visited the Holy Land in May, he wasn’t there as an emissary to the Muslims or to the Jews in the area. He visited political and religious leaders of both groups, but he was there to minister to the Christians in the region who are caught between Muslim groups like Hamas and…

A local official in Maryland recently announced that she is willing to go to jail because of her Christian faith. Carroll County Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier decided that she will continue to defy a federal judge’s order against sectarian prayers in board meetings, and is willing to suffer any consequences. On March 26, U.S. District…

On page 563 of his latest biography — John Quincy Adams: American Visionary — author Fred Kaplan (biographer of Abraham Lincoln, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, and Gore Vidal among others) cites this insight of the sixth president: Christianity had, all in all, he believed, been a civilizing force, “checking and controlling the anti-social passions of…

For Americans who’d prefer a less invasive federal government, and an executive branch with more modest views of its own authority, several events leading up to Independence Day offered a welcome respite. The big question, however, is whether small-government conservatives—beleaguered for so long—will know when they’re ahead of the game. The recent winning streak for…

Whenever the subject of politics and religion comes up, some individuals wish to believe that the two are not connected. Yet, many people are concerned with the speed of America’s moral collapse.   Throughout both the bible and world history, the two have collided (wars were fought over religion). When the Kings and Judges in the…

I am absolutely convinced that the only way we are going to achieve any semblance of a genuine solution to our country’s ills is to resurrect patriot pulpits and liberty churches. There is no other solution. The Republican Party is just as much a part of the problem as is the Democrat Party. Conservatives are…

Ben Carson is holding no punches on the abortion interview. In an interview with DoveTV’s Perry Atkinson, Carson was asked what he thought about the hot-button issue—specifically, if solving it would solve the rest of America’s spiritual problems to an extent. “It’s interesting that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations ‘heathen’ because of…
