A Danish cleric identified as a rightwing political and cultural figure in the Denmark of the 1930s became the center of moral and intellectual resistance to the Nazi occupation of Denmark. Kaj Munk was murdered by the Germans and Danish traitors in January 1944 as an attempt to […]
Most people today have heard of S. Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, due to the company’s high-profile conflicts over its Christian values, but there was an original chicken billionaire whose chickens are also still around today. Frank Perdue, the longtime CEO of Perdue Farms, […]

I was delighted to have the opportunity to discuss some of the issues raised in my latest book, A ‘Final Theory’ of God, with Ed Berliner on his Midpoint show on Newsmax. After a brief outline of the arguments presented in the book, […]
On December 11th, Robert Nordlander, a household name to anyone who habitually read the opinion pages in the Appleton Post-Crescent, passed away after a lingering illness.
Nordlander was also once a columnist in a publication that I currently write a monthly column for and, some years ago […]

Veteran character actor Michael Rooker is long known as a go-to guy in Hollywood for playing it tough and gruff. Most recently, the 59-year-old Rooker has proven to be a reliable TV star, wreaking havoc […]
For starters, Rand is short for Randal, not an allusion to Ayn Rand, after whom Sen. Paul was not named by his libertarian (not Objectivist) father Ron Paul. Reportedly, growing up he was called Randy … until his wife shortened the diminutive to Rand.
Washington, ordinarily, is […]

Bill O’Reilly was pleased that he was allowed to ask questions and for the most part Obama refused to answer the questions. These types of interviews are for the most part useless. Those that like Obama swore O’Reilly was rude. And those who don’t trust Obama saw […]
