In 1973, with the bang of a gavel, seven men in Washington, D.C. consigned tens of millions of future Americans to an incredibly premature death. These Americans were condemned to die before they were born. When he first read about the decision, a Christian businessman from Chicago was dumbfounded. Joe Scheidler decided to quit his career.
With school back in full session around the country, it's interesting to think about how the Bible is often banned directly or indirectly in schools. Yet the Bible gave birth to schools for the masses. There would be no public schools without the sacred book.
There's barely a week that goes by without North Korea being in the news. It seems that the Stalinist dictator there enjoys rattling his saber, even threatening America from the other side of the globe.

If we start to tear down all statues of Lee and Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, why stop there? What about the nine presidents of the United States who owned slaves? We should be honest about our history, but not try to revise it with a giant eraser.
Jane Hodgson, who died about a decade ago, was celebrated in liberal circles as a pioneer of abortion rights. She was a master at justifying the killing of human life in the womb.
It would be disastrous for this country if we went the route of Europe in being a post-marriage society. The old cliché is still true: As the family goes, so goes society.

Barely a week goes by without some challenge to our nation's Judeo-Christian roots in the name of the separation of church and state. But as another Fourth of July is upon us, it's interesting to note what the founders said in their own words.
Today, Sony is trying to offer consumers toned-down versions of movies that contain raunchy moments so that they will be more acceptable as family entertainment. And some in Hollywood are screaming bloody murder.
Zero times anything is zero. The odds of life just happening by chance are zero. This universe just springing into being by chance is impossible.

Our society is moving away from our Judeo-Christian roots at warp speed toward supposedly greater enlightenment. Then why do feelings of guilt remain? Isn't that an unwelcome vestige of an old-fashioned, irrelevant past?
Last week, Khalid Masood, a British-born Jihadist, ran over innocent people in London on the bridge close to Big Ben and then stabbed a police officer to death, before being killed by police. Where is Khalid Masood's soul right now? Presumably, he thought he was taking a short-cut to Paradise.
