    Janice Shaw Crouse

    In a new national survey, the Pew Research Center reports an ironic public perception: Democrats are viewed, in general, more favorably than Republicans, while the same survey indicates that the public agrees more with the Republicans on certain particular issues.

  • The Lessons of Hillary Clinton's Secrecy

    Stanley Kurtz

    We now know that Hillary Clinton evaded government record keeping and jeopardized national security by using a private email account while Secretary of State. Troubling as this incident is, it points to larger and more disturbing lessons about the woman who may become our next president.

  • Brandon Heath on the Power of Christian Summer Camp: Finding Community, Challenge and God

    Brandon Heath

    As a high school student, I'd heard stories from friends about camp — staying up late, eating s'mores around a fire, zip lining through the trees.

    Chelsen Vicari

    It is tempting to neglect incarcerated Christians in America.

  • Radical Islamic Jihadism: A Mortal Threat to Western Civilization

    Make no mistake, the radical Islamic jihadist terrorist attacks in Paris strike at the very heartbeat of Western Civilization, namely freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of conscience, and freedom of religion.
