Ted Olson has borrowed ideas from the Declarataion of Independence to support gay marriage, but then by his own reasoning discredits the Declaration.

"The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage"?

Theodore Olson has written a cover story for Newsweek magazine with the title "The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage." You may remember Ted Olson as an Assistant Attorney General (Office of Legal Counsel) in the Reagan administration. While serving in the Reagan administration, Olson defended the President during the Iran-Contra affair. Olson successfully represented George W. Bush in the Supreme Court case Bush v. Gore in the highly contested 2000 Presidential election. He was married to fellow-conservative and author Barbara Olson who was a passenger on the hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

Christianity Separates Church and State

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was written and authorized with one intended meaning. Few in our country know what the lawmakers that formed the First Amendment had in mind — they only know what they have been told. Christianity is not opposed to separation, but actually supports it biblically. Gary DeMar shows where […]

Law in Colonial America

With the exception of Rhode Island, every early American colony incorporated the entire Decalogue into its own civil code of laws. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut declared that the Governor and his council of six elected officials would "have power to administer justice according to the laws here established; and for want thereof according to the rule of the word of God." Also in 1638, the Rhode Island government adopted "all those perfect and most absolute laws of His, given us in His holy word of truth, to be guided and judged thereby. Exod. 24. 3, 4; 2 Chron. II. 3; 2 Kings. II. 17."

We Should Legislate Morality

Christians are confronted with liberals saying "separation of church and state," "judge not, that you be not judged," "you can't legislate morality." Gary shows that not only do we legislate morality, but that nearly every bit of legislation is based on some sort of moral code. Every person in office makes moral choices that dictate […]

Christians Taking On "Things of this World"

Christians are divided between what they understand to be the great commission and Christian influence in culture. One person emailed Gary to ask "Would you not see that the main concern of the church is to preach the gospel, baptize, disciple believers in matters concerning their lives as believers in Christ JESUS?" Gary answers this […]

Myths, Lies, And Half-Truths (Part 2)

It is crucial that Christians learn their roles as citizens and what they can do to produce meaningful change. Gary reviews the call Christians have in Scripture to cultivate a biblical culture around them — including in civil government. Politics may be dirty, but politics can be cleaned up and should be cleaned up by […]

Harold Camping Will go Mad on May 11, 2011

Harold Camping is at it again. He is predicting that an eschatological "end" will take place in 2011. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that "Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he'd found: The world will end May 21, 2011."

If you've been watching Bible prophecy discussions closely since the early 1990s you may remember his name. Gary DeMar reviews reports from Camping that the end of the […]
