Is the Church in America Dying?

“We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being.” So declared the U.S. Supreme Court in Zorach v. Clauson (1952). In an earlier decision, Rector of the Holy Trinity v. United States (1892), the Supreme Court said: “[Americans are] a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to […]

DOJ Tramples on the Constitution

The United States under the Biden administration is using the force of government to harass the late Phyllis Schlafly’s group in Alabama. In recent months, the Eagle Forum of Alabama has helped write legislation in that state to protect children with gender confusion from receiving “treatment” that could permanently damage them. In his End of […]

Make 1984 Fiction Again

Well, as of last week, it’s official. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has dissolved (at least for now) its “disinformation board.” Some critics have called this the “Ministry of Truth,” as in George Orwell’s classic novel about a dystopian, totalitarian future, 1984. The agency was to be engaged in “countering disinformation that threatens the […]

Increasing Inflation to Fight Inflation?

My wife just came back from a routine grocery store run. She said, “These people are destroying the country.” She wasn’t talking about the store—she was talking about our elite political class that are spending our country into high inflation. And now they are poised to spend even more. They have just passed a bill […]

Falsely Teaching Our Children That America is Evil

For 42 years American school children have been subject to a barrage of misinformation about our American history. This has helped cause many of them to hate America. And virtually every day we read about the results. For example, there’s a curriculum clash in one of our nation’s most conservative states. On Friday, Gary Bauer […]

Why Does the Left Seem More Committed to Death Than to Life?

Did you read in the news about the three mosques in the U.S. that were set on fire just the other weekend? Did you hear in the mainstream media about the scores of attacks, including some firebombings, of the Planned Parenthood facilities by pro-life extremists? Did you hear about the harassment of the pro-abortion politicians […]

Violence in the Name of “Jane’s Revenge”

Ever since the unprecedented leak of an early draft of the Dobbs decision from the Supreme Court which may overturn Roe v. Wade, the “shock troops of tolerance” have been busy interrupting church services. And they have done much destruction of crisis pregnancy centers. They claim to be “pro-choice,” but choice involves options. And these […]

Meaninglessness in Art

A recent visit to a museum of modern art got me thinking about how much of it is meaningless. Ecclesiastes begins with these famous words: “Vanity of vanities…All is vanity.” All is meaningless. As a book in the Bible, Ecclesiastes is a terrific precursor to the Gospel of Christ. It shows us how life apart […]
