Careful What You Click For

By Rachel Marie Stone

When I click on links I know are trashy, or links I know I’m going to disagree with, I’m casting a vote for more of the same. Chances are, you are too.

Principles

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Why don’t modern feminists care about the rape and slaughter of women by ISIS as much as they do the phony issue of Republicans supposedly trying to take away their birth control? It’s because modern feminism gave up its principles a long time ago in exchange for political power. Don’t believe me? Ask Bill Clinton–and Hillary.

Excuse Me, My Baby Is the Wrong Color

Monday, October 13th, 2014

By John Stonestreet

Now, I don’t doubt the lesbian couple’s love for the child. But I find it troubling which challenges the couple was willing and isn’t willing to tolerate. They’re suing because of the difficulties of raising a black child in a white community, but they were perfectly willing to risk raising the child without a father—a situation that the best evidence suggests poses far greater consequences for the child. Make no mistake: this is one of those stories that’s a mirror of our culture’s view of sex and children.

Mountain

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Finding joy is like climbing a mountain. Some look at the summit and never attempt the journey, believing it is impossible to attain–at least for them. Others grimly put one foot in front of the other but quit before they get to the top, believing other things ultimately are more important. Still more doggedly attempt the climb but discover, years later, that they have going around in circles in the foothills. Others climb with friends who have gone before and find themselves, at last, at the peak. A few, however, merely look at the summit and find, to their surprise, that they are already there.

Judaism’s Sexual Revolution

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

By Chuck Colson

So often we hear that allowing two men or two women to marry won’t hurt anyone, and certainly not “straight” people. Well, the truth is, we already know what happens when a society promotes sexual license and devalues marriage. We just have to look at history.

Action

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Reports continue to circulate that the president is weighing “executive action” on immigration and on Guantanamo Bay “after the election.” In other words, when Mr. Obama and the Democrats are safe from voters’ wrath, they plan to act against the wishes of the American people and in defiance of Congress, which is the body of government that most directly represents the people.

Folks, the election next month really is Barack Obama’s last election. As he has said, he’s not on the ballot, but issues near and dear to him are. If you’ve had enough of his “leadership,” please vote against those issues and the people who support them. The first order of business is for Republicans to gain control of the U.S. Senate and remove the obstructionist Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.

Ben Affleck’s Islam Problem

Friday, October 10th, 2014

By Rich Lowry

The latest episode of Bill Maher’s HBO show Real Time performed what was, in effect, an in-studio social experiment.

It sought to establish, in a controlled setting, the answer to this pressing question: How long could Maher and atheist author Sam Harris talk frankly about the illiberalism of much of the Muslim world before actor and director Ben Affleck, also a guest on the show, accused them of racism?

The result is in: not very.

Why do so many liberals despise Christianity?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

By Damon Linker

Liberals increasingly want to enforce a comprehensive, uniformly secular vision of the human good. And they see alternative visions of the good as increasingly intolerable.
