Even though the majority of our nation and our generation is pro-life, many high school and college administrations still treat those with pro-life views as second class citizens, acting as if we should just be grateful when they let us host a speaker or put up a flyer they have tried to censor.
At the end of the classic film, "The Bridge Over the River Kwai," the prison camp's doctor surveys the scenes of death and destruction surrounding him. He sums up the imponderable moral irony of the British helping the Japanese build a bridge only to blow it up as a military necessity, and exclaims, "Madness! Madness!"
Last Monday, the Supreme Court declined to review the case. The odds were not in the Romeikes's favor; less than one percent of all appeals are considered by the highest court. But the formal refusal was still a blow, and hard to accept. All seemed lost, until something unexpected happened.
Growing up "on the wrong side of the tracks" in Cincinnati, I experienced some of the racial crimes committed – blacks on whites; whites on blacks. But what was most concerning were the heinous acts of violence that involved black perpetrators on black victims, especially involving black men.
In the Left's never-ending effort to enable girls and women to have recreational sex without being "punished with a baby" (as President Obama put it in reference to his daughters awhile back), emergency contraception will now be less expensive and more accessible because of two new developments.
What do you do when you have no confidence that the party that holds to many of your core values will actually stand up for those values if put back in power? In the aftermath of CPAC, that's the predicament I find myself in when it comes to the Republican Party, and I'm sure I don't speak for myself alone.
The latest gun control law in Connecticut has crossed a very frightening line. A standoff has been created between the government and tens of thousands of gun owners now considered felons.
Despite its box office success, the Son of God Movie isn't very good. Despite its widespread endorsement by Christian leaders, it is not faithful to the Scriptures. Watching this film reminded me of my dealings with seriously disturbed children.
What would you think of a pastor who preached to his church in front of billboards advertising the newest Cadillac or Monster Energy drinks? Would you find it acceptable for a pastor to paste advertising all over the stage, filling the space with branded messages in the finest traditions of NASCAR?
USA Today recently published the results of a national survey among 18 to 31-year-olds regarding cohabitation. A whopping 76 percent of young Americans said living together before marriage is fine. The stark reality is that 65 percent of "altar – bound" singles--many of who identify as "Christians"-- now live together before marriage, a euphemism for lifestyle fornication.
David McGee founded "Cross the Bridge" Ministries and "The Bridge" Church in central North Carolina. With more than 2,000 church members, as well as a vast audience on more than 500 TV and radio media outlets, you might think David McGee is very motivational. But his teaching style is distinctly different from many of today's pastors and Christian media personalities.
The efforts by several states to pass laws protecting the consciences of people with deeply-held religious convictions against same-sex marriage have ignited a debate that has generated far more heat than light. Charges of state-sanctioned discrimination harkening back to the dark days of Jim Crow have been leveled at the proponents of such laws.
Perhaps it is time for Americans to look to their historical heritage as embodied in Washington and Lincoln and remember that they are the ones who confer power on government by their consent and the government is there to serve them.
Billy Graham has emerged as unquestionably the most famous and influential Christian preacher of any theological tradition for the last century and perhaps the last millennium.
Nelson Mandela's Greatness: Rare Combination of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King Jr.
Nelson Mandela was a great man. If there were to be an international Mount Rushmore of twentieth century world leaders, his countenance would certainly be among the first to be carved into the rock surface. Why is this so?
Saturday, November 23, is National Adoption Day. This observance gives Americans the opportunity to focus on this neglected, multi-faceted issue that impacts our national future in significant ways.
House Republicans have been debating whether they should pass immigration reform this year or wait until later. Either choice contains benefits and risks. Here are the pros and cons of delaying immigration reform.
In the debate over Arizona's S.B. 1062, a bill that would have modified the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, some opponents of the bill characterized the bill and others like it as "Jim Crow for gays." Those who used this analogy, though, either do not understand RFRA, do not understand Jim Crow, or both.
Some have claimed that a bill recently passed by the Arizona legislature would give businesses broad license to not serve someone for being gay. This claim, though, may be a misreading, according a CP legislative analysis. While the bill is an attempt to broaden who is covered under its religious freedom protections, in all cases it actually narrows when a religious belief could be used to refuse service.
