Is the Christian Right Driving Liberals Away From Religion?

Michele Margolis is a political science professor at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of From Politics to the Pews: How Partisanship and the Political Environment Shape Religious Identity. She writes, “some people on the left are falling away from religion because they see it as so wrapped up with Republican politics.” As someone who […]

The Left’s Love Affair with Tyrants and Dictators

During the 1940s and 1950s, Hollywood producers, directors, and actors were being scrutinized for their political beliefs. The period of "red hysteria" put people’s jobs in the film industry in jeopardy. "Artists were barred from work on the basis of their alleged membership in or sympathy toward the American Communist Party, involvement in liberal or humanitarian political causes that enforcers of the blacklist associated with communism, and/or refusal to assist federal investigations into Communist Party activities; some were blacklisted merely because their names came up at the wrong place and time."

Stop Complaining About Public Schools and Get Your Children Out!

The films Get Out (2017) and Rosemary’s Baby (1968) are disturbing but not as disturbing as today’s government schools. Public schools are corrupting the minds of the next generation of voters and leaders and it seems that a majority of Christians don’t care. They continue to send their children to the schools of their enemies. […]

Yale Law School: Christians Need Not Apply

Today’s academic institutions are shutting out competing worldviews. Professors who question evolution will not receive tenure and will most likely be dismissed. Don’t even think about getting hired if you oppose abortion and don’t bow before the altar of sexual and gender dysmorphia. Senate Democrats are opposing lawyers who are up for judicial posts if […]

Heal the Nation? Heal the Church First!

Many people and organizations including our own are calling for a political revival back to the form of government that our Founding Fathers established. However, when examining the history of God’s people in His Word, it has become clearly obvious that before we can ask God to heal our land that we first need to heal the Church.

By Church, I am referring to the 77% of Americans that identified themselves as Christians in a Gallup Poll released April 10, 2009. (Sadly, that figure has dropped from the 91% in 1948.) If the three-fourths of the American population actually lived a true Christian life, our nation would not be suffering the wrath of God that we are currently under. If these Christians lived their lives like 77% of Muslims or Buddhists, or Sikhs, or other religions do, we would still be the Christian nation that our Founders established it to be.

Trinity University Student Objects to “In the Year of Our Lord”

Trinity University Muslim student objects to “In the Year of Our Lord” on his diploma. Pushing to remove this religious reference, the student is cleverly sliding the issue past Christians that are disengaged from the situation and unaware of the historical significance the phrase has in America’s Christian history.

Christianity and “Racialism”

A few years ago, I asked some fellow Black Christians a probing question: What guides your life decisions-your faith or your race? Most people immediately said faith. But when I probed more-asking about their social and political decisions-they weren’t so sure. For many Black Christians, answering that question honestly may mean admitting that racial considerations and our nation’s history of have as much or more influence as faith principles in their lives. Pastors and leaders who are not Black may not have considered this fact or its cause. But understanding this issue will help as they minister to multiracial audiences.

The Trap of Neutrality

According to a radio editorial some years ago, “a man’s religion and the strength of his conviction are his own personal matter” and therefore “religion should not interfere with politics.”[1] Of course, this too is an expression of humanist neutrality designed to silence Christians but allow for every other conceivable worldview to find expression in the public and political arena.

The Church of the First Adam

Until about seven months ago (suspiciously around the time of the presidential election), I never paid much attention to the messages blazoned on the backside of the car in front of me. Lately, however, it seems that bumper stickers have become the last bastion of free speech – the final frontier of public politically incorrect expression. As I was making my way home from work the other evening I saw one that got my attention. It was simple in its design: a website address in white letters on a black background. It was the name of the website that really got me thinking –

Shrink to Win Precedents are Not Hard to Find

Come on, Peggy Noonan. You’re smarter than that.

When Sen. Arlen Specter (R – no, it used to be an R but now it’s D-Pa.) decided late in April that it would be more comfy during his sunset years to be part of the political majority instead of a pitiful and impotent minority, the argument broke out all over the place. What could Republicans do to stanch the flow of blood?

Beyond Good and Evil

“It can’t happen here!” How many times have we heard this claim? But it can happen here. Many will tell you that it is happening here. It seems that almost on a daily basis we are losing our God-given rights. Some even make the case that there is a direct assault on the Christian religion because it is the only belief system that puts limits on governments. To grow the State means that biblical law must be reinterpreted or made to disappear altogether. Relegating God to a distant corner of the universe or redefining and remaking Him in the image of the politically empowered emboldens governments to “do what they will" without any regard to any fixed moral foundation.

The Design of the Constitution

Although some compromises were necessary to complete the framing of our Constitution – and to ensure that we had a constitution at all – our Constitution was not a mere bundle of pragmatic compromises. Our Constitution was designed: it was the product of a carefully crafted deliberative process in which history’s lessons concerning the effects of different forms of civil government for liberty and justice were carefully weighed and the proposed means of giving us the best form of republican government that the people of the various states would accept were both considered and reconsidered.
