I Refuse to Be Comforted

February 3rd, 2010 | by Bojidar Marinov

I refuse to be comforted. I refuse to listen to sermons that assure me that "whatever happens, God is in control." I refuse to read and listen to pastors, authors, and leaders that comfort me with God's peace when everywhere around me I see God's war

January 12th, 2010 | by Gary DeMar

With the exception of Rhode Island, every early American colony incorporated the entire Decalogue into its own civil code of laws.

It's astonishing and a little horrifying that America's elites know so little about their country's history. Case in point: Jared Bernstein of the Economic Policy Institute. Jared is an influential left-ish economic polemicist and a sometime adviser to Barack Obama on economic affairs. I've debated with Jared dozens of times over the past several years, but what happened this week was especially disturbing
