Can Christianity Survive the Sexual Revolution?

sxrvlutnWhen was the last time anyone heard a sermon that condemned the evils of fornication, or adultery, or cohabitation, or divorce, or bearing children outside wedlock (let alone homosexuality)?

The Much Maligned Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law is Merely a State RFRA

rfraThere is little understanding of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law. The First Amendment says, “Congress shall make no law . . . prohibiting the free exercise [of religion].” Does this merely prevent government from prescribing or proscribing certain religious beliefs?

Duly Noted - What is Wrong Here?

AFA’S Anti-Christian Bigotry Map

antchrstnbgtrympIn 2007, and with that same nauseating arrogance that has come to define him, then presidential candidate Barack Obama duplicitously quipped, “I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are just so ’90s. Their days are growing dark.”

Dark, indeed. America’s soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater […]

The Truth and Charlie Hebdo

charlie-hebdo-mahomet_2_There is an old adage that good humor contains at least a grain of truth. This is particularly true in the case of political humor, much of which is based on satire, and the magazine Charlie Hebdo was the French king of political satire. Nothing was safe from […]

Setting the Stage for the Modern Feudal State
