    The shift in American society from admiring Christians to fearing and criticizing them provides an opportunity for self-reflection. How have we been presenting the message we believe in? Might there be a more grace-filled way?Some want to focus on personal morality and leave public morality to secular politicians. Others seek ways to guide the broader culture while still communicating grace. Rather than propose a single path, I will instead make some observations and suggestions for Christians to consider as we interact with a world that does not always share our views.Clashes Between Christ and Culture Are UnavoidableJohn Howard Yoder recounted...

    On Easter Sunday, President Trump heard about the thousands of illegal aliens who are marching through Mexico towards the U.S. border and, quite understandably, expressed his frustration with the development on Twitter by calling for congressional Republicans to act. Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 1, 2018 ...Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if...

    A strident voice for the voiceless “It must be death penalty supporters’ goal to convince the American people – and their representatives – that they should no longer accept the judiciary as fit to decide capital punishment sentencing cases, or indeed fit to decide anything of importance. We must shield the law-abiding not only from lawless predators but from lawless judges and justices who protect them” So is the declared mission statement of Dr. Lester Jackson, author of the recently released effort Equal Justice for Victims: A Blueprint for the Rightful Restoration of Capital Punishment, a withering assault on those...

    Brenda Arthur received an unexpected visit on March 8 that, one week later, leaves her feeling more than a little uneasy. At her door that day was an officer with the West Virginia State Police. He wanted to know about her involvement in a Freedom of Information request regarding a local mosque. Arthur, who will turn 67 this summer, is leader of the West Virginia chapter of ACT For America, whose mission is to educate Americans about the advancement of Islamic principles in Western societies. As a Jewish American, she was concerned about a major expansion of the Islamic Association...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Shortly after 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. were the victims of a mass shooting in February, Staten Island activists mobilized and are now gearing up to attend the "March For Our Lives" rally in Washington, DC on March 24. About 10 buses will leave St. George on Saturday to participate in the student-led march to stop school shootings and end gun violence. "This is a sign of hope that Staten Island is ready to join the national movement," said Lorie Honor, leader of Staten Island Women Who March,...

    American Thinker ^ | March 15, 2018 | Rich Logis
    Why do those who criticize Donald Trump for not being a "traditional" president fawn over President Obama not being a "traditional" post-presidential citizen? I would say Michelle and Barack Obama are back in the news, but they've never left the news since the 22nd Amendment mercifully exiled them from the Oval Office last year. When President Clinton took the oath of office in 1992, President George H.W. Bush went away. When President George W. Bush assumed power in 2000, President Clinton went away (until the prospect of being the first gentleman came a-knockin'). When President Obama placed his hand on...

    Where’s the conservative/libertarian organized opposition to anything? The cultural marxists, as Rahm Emanuel would say, “never let a crisis go to waste,” while the opposition sits idly by with their thumbs up their asses. The Left responds almost immediately to any catalytic event, especially tragedy. The Left is proactive, always stirring up trouble, several steps ahead of the opposition. They exploit every issue, every weakness. They leave no stones unturned. The conservative opposition is reactive at best, but invisible and limp most of the time. The conservative/libertarian opposition is meek, timid, disorganized and uncoordinated; they are always left holding the...

    Can we trust the judgement of think-tanks who have labeled Twitter users as part of a ‘Russian influence campaign’ as sound when those same entities provide little evidence, and their high-level members include former Clinton supporters?At the beginning of 2017, an initiative was launched by a non-partisan think-tank called the German Marshall Fund US (GMFUS) under the name “The Alliance For Securing Democracy” (ASD).During the Summer, ASD started working on a project they called the “Hamilton 68 Dashboard“, an effort that was presented to the public as a means of monitoring Russian disinformation efforts on Twitter, apparently boosted by...

The policies and the rhetoric coming out of the Trump administration no longer represent the values that I hold true. The wealthy are favored at the expense of the vast majority of working and middle-class families. Too many are denied access to basic health care. Millions of people – mostly black and brown – are preyed upon by a system that favors profit-driven mass incarceration over rehabilitation. And the...

    Captain Paul Watson from the controversial marine conservation group Sea Shepherd says that a lack of resources and technology compared to the Japanese whalers has made it impossible for the group to effectively combat the killing of whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. As the Japanese whaling fleet embarks on its annual whale hunt in the Southern Ocean, for the first time in 12 years Sea Shepherd will not be sending ships to the whale sanctuary. The group initially announced the decision to end the yearly campaign in August. “The reason that Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is not now...

    Many people over the age of thirty treat YouTube as sort of a joke. They use to use it primarily to watch clips of speeches or for how-to videos: how to fix a dishwater, how to set up a wireless printer. But in the past six months or so, older conservatives have begun to follow specific channels from a wide variety of perspectives – people with 1 million, 2 million subscribers and more. And they are now realizing that YouTube can be one of the greatest facilitators of communication in the world – a way for ordinary people to bypass...

We are in a global struggle between liberal democracy and a rising tide of illiberalism, authoritarianism and dictatorship. “That illiberalism comes in many strains, including in Russia’s aggressive efforts to destabilize — if not dismantle — the liberal world order.” The antidote, Clinton claims, is the “wave of activism” she said is inspiring her in the U.S. and around the world.

    An engineering student who was an LGBTQ activist was shot and killed by Georgia Tech campus police on Saturday night, officials said Sunday. The school identified the victim as Scout Schultz, 21, a fourth-year engineering student from Lilburn, Georgia, who police said was armed with a knife. Schultz, president of Georgia Tech's Pride Alliance, identified as non-binary and intersex and preferred to be referred to with they/them gender pronouns, according to the alliance's website. At a news conference Monday, Schultz's family's attorney said the student was experiencing a "mental breakdown" on the night of the shooting.

    The Higher Education Establishment insists that its mission is just that. Academic insiders know better. "Activism in this broad sense rules the day in contemporary higher education," Zena Hitz, a tutor at St. John’s College in Annapolis, writes in the summer 2017 issue of Modern Age. "The core purpose of the University of Texas, according to its mission statement, is 'to transform lives for the benefit of society.'" "Education is for the sake of 'social transformation,' says Harvard College--or 'the improvement of the world today,' according to Yale University." Yet and still, conservatives ready to high five each other and...
