Natural Law Versus Positive Law

Written by Jack Kerwick on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

Natural law theorists who seek to make an example of the Eric Garner case, risk using arguments that, in reality, undermine the concepts of Natural Law.

Natural Law Versus Positive Law

Eric Garner, many libertarians seem to think, was innocent as far as the natural law is concerned.

Muslim go BOOM!

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Isn't it interesting that arrayed against the life-affirming faiths of Christianity and Judaism, one finds the life-denying forces of both Islam and liberal-progressivism?

Muslim go BOOM!

“When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” 

– The Quran, Surah 9:5

Chanukah Celebrates Rededication

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

As the first Chanukah candle is lighted this year, we are days from celebrating Christmas. This is a good time to remember to resist those for whom religion is a reason to hate others as well as those who reject spiritual faith.

Chanukah Celebrates Rededication

Sometimes I think that Jews are going to have to arm themselves in order to celebrate Chanukah. These days, merely praying in a synagogue, whether it is in Jerusalem or Brooklyn has become hazardous.

When Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Multiculturalism is the cancer afflicting Western civilization, and which threatens its ultimate destruction.

When Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles

There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else, illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, Canada or Belgium — or the United States.

Let's Get Government Out of the Charity Business

Written by Star Parker on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Star Parker

Why focus on trying to make government more efficient rather than on what government should or should not do?

Let's Get Government Out of the Charity Business

The story is told that when Tennessee frontiersman Davy Crockett served in the US Congress (between 1827 and 1835) he voted for a bill appropriating $20,000 for relief for victims of a fire that broke out in Georgetown.

We're Number Two

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

For "Main Street" America, the economy has not recovered, and now China has officially surpassed America as the number one economy. Both facts are outcomes of the strangulation of federal regulations and socialism.

We're Number Two

The U.S. was the world's number one economy prior to World War II, but it took off bigtime after the war and there has not been a day of my long life in which we were not number one—until now.

How Uncle Killed Pontiac

Written by Eric Peters on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Arguably, Pontiac was the greatest of GM divisions, and its demise the saddest. Unknown to most, it didn't die a natural death, but was strangled by Fed regulation.

How Uncle Killed Pontiac

The French philosopher-economist Frederic Bastiat wrote about the unseen repercussions of government interfering with the market’s natural progressions. In other words, what might have been. Perhaps the saddest four words in the language.

You WILL Live Forever

The title is true, whether you are a Christian or not. The question is which variety of everlasting life one can expect.

You WILL Live Forever

“The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.”– 1 John 2:17

Protesting Law and Order

Written by Alan Caruba on Thursday, 11 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Evidently, racial divisions persist in America, and appear to have worsened in the Obama era.

Protesting Law and Order

I doubt there was ever a time in America, pre-Revolution and since, that race was not an issue. It was for the framers of the Constitution who, in order to get the southern colonies to accept it, included in Article Two that, for the purpose of taxation, slaves were to be identified as only “three-fifths” of being a person. In Section 9, it was agreed that the issue of slavery was not to be addressed until 1808, but “a tax or duty may be imposed on such importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each person.”

Murder v. Manslaughter

Written by Rev. David Whitney on Thursday, 11 December 2014. Posted in David Whitney, Opinion

What does the Bible teach that can illuminate the present troubles flowing from Ferguson?

Murder v. Manslaughter

On the evening of November 24th in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ 2014, “after more than 3 months during which it met 25 times and heard 60 witnesses, a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri declined to indict Officer Darren Wilson on any of the five charges put forth by the prosecution ranging from second-degree involuntary manslaughter to first-degree murder in association with the death of unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown, who Officer Wilson shot multiple times.(1)

Americans Are Not Stupid

With Obamacare, the only thing Congress did was to create an unnecessarily complex system to pay for insurance and give them an excuse to blame us for not understanding it.

God’s Axe to the Roots of an Idolatrous Tree

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Tuesday, 09 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Americans cringe at the sight of ISIS beheading innocent people and rightly so. At the same time, we ignore the fact that Roe vs. Wade sanctioned the beheading of our own sons and daughters. We have decapitated children in the womb for close to 42 years.

God’s Axe to the Roots of an Idolatrous Tree

Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated, “Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.” The modern era, which taps its toe at the microwave and feels rushed by the “tyranny of the urgent,” does not seem to have enough time to connect the dots between sowing and reaping.
