Should Men Who Claim to be Women be Permitted to Compete with Biological Women in Sports?

Another man pretending to be a woman broke some women’s cycling records. It’s also been happening in wrestling, basketball, track and field, and weightlifting. Any man, even one who is “transitioning,” can beat most women in these sports. New Zealand weightlifter Laurel [sic] Hubbard won the over-90kg [198.4+ pounds] division at the Australian International in […]

Columbus and the Flat Earth Myth

Each Columbus Day, Christopher Columbus is hammered for his voyages of exploitation of native peoples. At the same time, Christians are ridiculed for once opposing the forward-thinking Columbus and his rejection of the flat earth mythology that was said to have been held by the Medieval church. Is any of it true? I’ll leave the […]

The End Times and the Islamic AntiChrist

Thomas Jefferson, serving as the ambassador to France, and John Adams, ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdrahaman, the Dey of Tripoli’s ambassador to Britain, attempting to negotiate a peace treaty with the Islamic world of their time. Jefferson and Adams argued in vain that the United States was not at war […]

Why Bother if the End is Near?

People have been trying to identify a particular antichrist for centuries. Christopher Hill’s book on the subject just deals with antichrist in seventeenth-century England. (There were many more through the centuries and in other countries.) The candidates included Protestants, the Pope, radical sects, bishops, the Crown, the “‘Establishment’ generally,” the universities, and “the Turk,” an […]

Florida School Bans Bible During Free Reading Time

Bite a Pop Tart so that it looks like a gun and you’ll be expelled. Read a Bible during free reading time, and it will be treated like Lady Chatterly’s Lover. Officials at Broward County Public Schools went along with a teacher who told fifth grader Giovanni Rubeo that he could not read his Bible […]

Maryland County Commissioner Picks Jail Time Over Skipping Prayer

Judges are stepping in where they have no jurisdiction, no constitutional backing, no understanding of the limits of the federal government in relation to the states, and almost no knowledge of American history. A Carroll County [Maryland] commissioner said she was “willing to go to jail” opening up a board meeting with a prayer despite […]

Atheists Attack Christian Gov. Walker for Bible Tweet

Whatever happened to “freedom of religion”? According to the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), it does not exist. The latest anti-God tyranny concerns a Twitter post by Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Here it is. Get ready. It’s ominous. It’s devastating: “Philippians 4:13.” That’s it. Gov. Walker didn’t even cite the content of the verse which […]

Josephus Among the Christian Scholars and Commentators

A study of Church history shows that the works of Josephus were consulted by Christians very early. Heinz Schreckenberg and Kurt Schubert trace the use of the works of Josephus to the earliest of the ante-Nicene fathers beginning, possibly, with Clement of Rome (died c. 101), Melito of Sardis (died c. 190), Irenaeus (died c. […]

Concerning Halloween

It has become routine in October for some Christian schools to send out letters warning parents about the evils of Halloween, and it has become equally routine for me to be asked questions about this matter. “Halloween” [not Holloween] is simply a contraction for All Hallows’ Eve. The word “hallow” means “saint,” in that “hallow” […]

Obama Administration Forces Bible Publisher to Pay for Abortions

The Obama administration is arguing that Tyndale House Publishers, a Christian publisher of Bibles and ministry material, is not religious enough to qualify for an exemption to the contraception mandate — which includes drugs many Christian groups say are abortifacients. The First Amendment does not make a distinction between for-profit and non-profit religious groups: “Congress […]

Does Coptic Papyrus Prove Jesus was Married?

Dr. Karen L. King, a professor at Harvard Divinity School, has released what she claims may be a 4th century papyrus that depicts Jesus as being. Here’s how the “discovery” is being reported: “A small fragment of faded papyrus contains a suggestion that Jesus may have been married. “The fragment, with just eight lines of […]

Why Christianity is a Religion of Peace and Islam is Not

As we reflect on the anniversary of 9/11, I think it important for us to reflect on the contrast between how the genuine Christian faith is advanced with how the religion of Islam is advanced. Robert Spencer is one of our nation’s most articulate and spot-on critics of Islamic extremism. He is the author of “The Truth About Muhammad,” “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades),” as well as other books on the relationship between Islam and terrorism. His more recent book, “Religion of Peace? Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t,” includes a short bio that informs readers that […]
