A Crossless Love

Written by Bradlee Dean on Thursday, 23 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Bradlee Dean

There is freedom nowhere in this world where there was not first the Gospel preached and a sacrifice unto God and Man bestowed.

Multiculturalism: Good or Bad for America?

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

Is multiculturalism a good thing or a bad thing for our American society? You might not realize it, but this is a very important question.

Multiculturalism: Good or Bad for America?

In 2008, during Obama’s first national campaign, Barack Obama is on record saying that America is not a Christian Nation.

Equal Work? Government Has No Idea What That is

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Bureaucrats, politicians and judges are not qualified to determine what equal work might be in the thousands of professions in America.

Equal Work? Government Has No Idea What That is

“Equal pay for equal work!” the mantra goes. “Women get only 73 cents on a man’s dollar!” These are oft-heard slogans, and we may well hear them again during the Fall campaign with the War on Women afoot. Now, going beyond the rhetoric, it’s not widely known but nonetheless true that the intersex pay gap is attributable to different career choices men and women make: women tend to choose less lucrative fields (e.g., soft sciences instead of hard ones), work shorter hours even when “full time,” are more likely to value personal fulfillment and job flexibility over money, are more inclined to take time off, generally have less job tenure and more often decline promotions. But while I’ve examined these factors at length in the past, the topic today is something more fundamental. This is that there would be a problem with even a well-intended equal-pay-for-equal-work scheme:

Limbaugh’s 'Jesus on Trial:' The Verdict is in

Written by J. Matt Barber on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Books, LifeStyle, Opinion, J. Matt Barber

If you’re a faithful believer, Limbaugh’s masterpiece will strengthen your faith. If you’re a faithful non-believer, it will weaken it. Either way, your soul will be the better for having read “Jesus on Trial.”

Limbaugh’s 'Jesus on Trial:' The Verdict is in

Attorney, author and columnist David Limbaugh is a man after my own heart. He’s also a man after my own mind. That is to say, as both a fellow member of the bar and follower of Christ, I tremendously appreciate how David approaches the hot button issues of the day. He carefully probes them within the framework of an objective, lawyerly and evidential analysis. He is a master communicator and never fails, in any case, to deliver deeply persuasive closing arguments in the court of public opinion.

OPERATION SAVE AMERICA PRESENTS: Operation: “Let My People Go!” - The March is not Over

Under the guise of helping poor, minority women, the abortion industry is killing, stealing, and destroying.

OPERATION SAVE AMERICA PRESENTS: Operation: “Let My People Go!” - The March is not Over

Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have a Dream” Speech

Since our nation’s inception, we have struggled with some form of racism. Slavery and segregation are the two most notable examples. Much blood, sweat, toil, and wealth were spent righting these national wrongs. Thank God, Americans in times past were willing to end these injustices.

The Christian Emergency League: A Call For Pastor And Christian to Stand Up And Stand Fast

Written by John Kirkwood on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, John Kirkwood

America is in dire straits, not because sinners act as sinners, but because saints don’t act at all.

The Christian Emergency League: A Call For Pastor And Christian to Stand Up And Stand Fast

On September 11th, 1933, a group of 61 German pastors gathered to form The Pfarrernotbund - The Pastor’s Emergency League. Outraged by Nazi incursion into Church affairs and disappointed by the silent pulpits of their peers, men like Martin Niemoller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer forged this covenant so that the light of the Christian gospel in Germany would neither be stamped out by Jack-boots nor trimmed by black robes.  

Sharia Enforcers in a Christian Country -- Here it Comes

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Replacing Christianity with agnosticism and secularism has not had the intended result of turning Europeans into obedient agnostic socialists. Instead, many are becoming attracted to Islam, something quite the opposite of the intended result.

Sharia Enforcers in a Christian Country -- Here it Comes

Bernard Chalumeau, founder of France Libre and expert on international law, sent me a link to a story of Sharia Police, an unauthorized group of Muslim activists posing as cops in Germany and harassing and threatening people for patronizing bars, eating pork, and doing other things that are perfectly legal in Germany and none of their business. This is just the beginning of the harassment, since the demographics are rapidly shifting from non-Muslim to Muslim. Just imagine what is certainly on the way.

Liberal BBC Asks, “Is Sport Sexist?” While Promoting Inequality

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 14 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

If we actually had to live with the reality of “equality” instead of just its rhetoric, lobbying for equality might go out the window really, really fast.

Liberal BBC Asks, “Is Sport Sexist?” While Promoting Inequality

It long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it. When making this case, one could point to how Eric Holder’s DOJ is currently suing the Pennsylvania State Police for treating women equally (how dare they!), but there’s perhaps no better example than a recent BBC writer who asks, “Is sport sexist?”

How Christian Kids Should Deal With 'LGBT' Peers

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 14 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

How should Christian children and teens interact with peers who either identify with, or are believed to engage in, a lifestyle marked by homosexual or cross-dressing behaviors?

How Christian Kids Should Deal With 'LGBT' Peers

Note: It is for columns like this that I created a “Hate Mail” folder in Outlook.

None can deny the fast-rising popularity and approval of the “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender” (LGBT) lifestyles. Most especially, perhaps, the “bisexual orientation,” which has become rather fashionable and, hence, more frequently practiced among today’s blindly “tolerant” millennial generation.

Sacred Sovereignty Must Be Restored

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 14 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

A political party based on the principle of sovereignty could resonate with patriotic Americans.

Sacred Sovereignty Must Be Restored

American conservatives and libertarians have always stressed the importance of the U.S. Constitution as the ruling document in our government. Indeed, sticking to the Constitution could restore government. Yet, government moves farther and farther from that document, and sometimes with the aid of unwitting conservatives. For example, we have often made the mistake of supporting presidents based on machismo and swag instead of on their insistence on respect for the sovereignty of other countries. Indeed, we have in the past praised presidents for their decisiveness in invading a country without the permission of Congress prescribed in Article 1, Section 1, foolishly thinking we can have it both ways.

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 14 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

If anyone would get us into a really big war, it would be someone who misreads situations and other people, fails to take necessary preventive action, and then reacts rashly. It would be a liberal.

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the U.S. was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great War needed to be fought, four conflicts aren’t exactly a scientific sample, and some could contend that these men were, to some extent, victims of timing and circumstance. It also should be said that with modernity’s characteristic flaw of relativism causing ever shifting social visions, yesterday’s liberals aren’t like today’s. As to this, some may mention that it’s a tad tendentious to limit the conflict timeframe to the 20th century, with George W. Bush getting us into Iraq and Afghanistan. But like his father, Bush was always a traditional statist, an old-line liberal in the mold of JFK. Moreover, our Middle East adventures weren’t quite like Korea or Vietnam: the wars were won fast. The problem was winning the peace.

Terms to Understanding Islam

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Thursday, 09 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Most Christians in America are not familiar with the specifics of Islam. Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas offers a primer.

Terms to Understanding Islam

In light of all the atrocities perpetrated by Islamic forces in our day, I thought it prudent to put together some Islamic terms that may help the average American come to terms with the nature of Islam.

The Tyranny of Democracy

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Thursday, 09 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

The cherished myth is that America is a democracy. But the Founding Fathers feared and loathed democracy as a form of government that was unstable and dangerous to liberty.

The Tyranny of Democracy

Does it drive you crazy when you hear politicians and talking heads refer to America as a “democracy”? If it does, I sympathize with you. And so do the founders.

Representing the Almighty

Written by Rev. David Whitney on Thursday, 09 October 2014. Posted in David Whitney, Opinion

If you are a Christian today, are you representing The Almighty? Have you shared the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with your family, friends or co-workers? What is holding you back?

Representing the Almighty

Have you ever thought about the difficulties of communication? It was interesting last month to watch my girls play with a friend’s children who hardly spoke any English. They found ways to play together in spite of the language barrier.
