How Do You Leave God Out of Prayer?

First, the good news. President Joe Biden recognized the National Day of Prayer last week. Now, the bad news. Although he marked the day with a written proclamation, as all presidents have done for decades, the reportedly “devout” Catholic left God out of his pronouncement. How do you do that if you’re sincerely emphasizing the […]

Has Socialism Harmed No One?

George Santayana famously said that those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.
