Stunned, I contemplated what I had read. Just days after Sergeant Owen in Lancaster, California, was brutally killed, a young high schooler was photographed at a local high school wearing a shirt that read, "Shoot the Police."
Emotions surfaced from anger to sadness. How can we allow this? How can the school allow this? We'll remove Bibles from our schools but allow this! No wonder America is crumbling from within.
The picture was quickly removed from Facebook but many saved the image. I found myself hoping that it was photoshopped by someone inciting violence versus a high schooler wearing this shirt as the school turned a blind eye. more >>
Coloradans will vote on an assisted suicide measure this November. Those who vote "Yes" are signing their own death warrants.
In a recent article at National Review Online, George Weigel tells a chilling story about just how far the culture of death has advanced in some parts of the West.
Three elderly parishioners at the Canadian church he attends during the summer were diagnosed with cancer. Now, that's bad enough. But what followed was even worse. The first thing they were asked after being told their diagnosis was, "Do you wish to be euthanized?" more >>
In front of our eyes, America is descending into vulgarity, lewdness, crudeness, and profanity. In front of our eyes, things which should not be spoken of in private are being shouted across the airwaves, and there seems to be almost no way to escape the bombardment of filth.
At times like this, those of us who love and fear the Lord need to be careful that we too don't descend into this trashiness, paying careful attention lest we become desensitized and hardened along with the rest of the culture.
I don't know if it can be demonstrated statistically, but many people believe that President Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky had a negative effect on the nation as a whole, in particular, among young people, who learned that one particular sexual act did not constitute "having sex." more >>
One Planned Parenthood experience has remained seared into my memory like no other. I was standing outside of Planned Parenthood in downtown Birmingham, praying on my lunch break. There was a woman across the street at an apartment building, holding her toddler in her arms. She stared at me for a few minutes before crossing the hot pavement. I saw nervousness in her eyes and a sort of longing that I understood later.
She immediately asked me, "Are you praying?"
"Yes. Do you need prayer?" more >>

Well, here it is … What do we do with Trump's "locker room talk"? What do we do with this election?
After talking this week on BreakPoint about the awful doctor-assisted suicide bill in Colorado, we'd planned to cover the complete misrepresentation of Intervarsity by both Time magazine and progressive post-evangelicals. But that will have to wait.
The headlines were stolen this week by a video of terrible comments made by Donald Trump in 2005. It has further divided the American people, and it has further divided Christians. In just the last week I've been accused of being both pro-Trump and "a tool of the progressive agenda." Even so, I'm going to wade into these contentious waters today. more >>
