I am not sure why we have Barack Obama as President and Commander-in-Chief. He can’t lead, he won’t be held accountable for anything that goes wrong, he runs from responsibility, plays golf instead of governs and fiddles with his Hollywood benefactors while the world burns brighter and [...]
“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.”

Now I shall endeavor to make that which is divine in me rise up to that which is divine in the universe.

Recently I read a post that stated something I have heard numerous times; “religious convictions have no place in influencing legislation in a secular society.” By the word “secular,” I can’t help wondering if they mean non-ecclesiastical or demonstrably irreligious. While our Founders certainly created a functional [...]
What’s hard to understand is why almost every time a British national newspaper (especially The Independent and The Guardian) publishes an article about some Muslim-related issue (say, the Islamisation of schools or, way back, the Danish cartoons) it either quotes the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) or [...]

“Again we are all sprung from a heavenly seed, all have that same Father…”

One of my readers, we’ll call him Moses, is the publisher of a mainstream newspaper in California. He wrote me the other day with an insightful observation. Since Moses works in one of the most liberal industries, in one of the most liberal states in the union, [...]
