    Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, had a way with words. In 1922, she wrote a book chapter titled "The Cruelty of Charity." Charity toward the poor, especially toward poor immigrants, she opined, only "encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others, which brings with it … a dead weight of human waste."

    Another Point of View: Evangelical Blindness on Lebanon The academic dean of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary is angry at evangelical Christians, Israel, Hezbollah, the U.S., and the international community. by Martin Accad ------------------------------------ Note: When covering international crises, such as the current fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, Christianity Today takes care to listen to evangelical Christian leaders in the places most affected. We may find their views corrective, provocative, or even abhorrent at times, but in each case we learn about areas where we stand together and areas where we disagree. In the case of this submission from Martin...

    Waging Peace on Islam A missionary veteran of Asia proposes one way to defuse Muslim anger about the Crusades. Interview by Stan Guthrie | posted 05/05/2005 09:00 a.m. Months before the movie Kingdom of Heaven was to be released, critics lined up to lament how this big-budget film about the Crusades would set back Muslim-Christian relations, leading to a Muslim or Christian backlash, depending on whom you read. But it's not as if this movie is raising an issue long since dead. The question is not if the Crusades are a live memory for Muslims, but why? And how do...
  • The $65,000 Question and the answer my autistic grandson gives. (Charles Colson)

    My wife, Patty, and I had a disturbing reminder of why the truth matters when we visited our autistic grandson's special-needs school one afternoon... ... As I was standing in the classroom, alone for a moment, an unwelcome thought came to mind. A question really. Why do we as a society take such trouble with these kids? Why does the school system spend as much as $65,000 per year to tend kids like Max? Max is never going to graduate and go to college and get a productive job. Likely, he will always be dependent on his family and the...
  • (Flashback to 2003) Christian History Corner: Our Brothers and Sisters, the Episcopalians

    The fast-growing liberal-conservative rift within the Episcopal Church has dominated the headlines of late, along with the rancorous exchanges between liberal Episcopalians and conservatives in world Anglicanism. But who are the Episcopalians? And why does their Church-of-England tradition matter in America? To understand Episcopalianism, you need to know that it arose from the Church of England, or Anglicanism. Remember? —that's the church that divided from Roman Catholicism when Henry VIII needed a quickie divorce. OK, but what are they like? How do they worship? What do they believe? First impressions of this worldwide communion only confuse: Some Anglicans are into...

    Misplaced piety -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: March 2, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com In this age of secular fundamentalism and new media, Christianity Today may not have as much clout as it once had. But it is still influential in evangelical church circles. So, when the magazine launches into an unprovoked, undeserved assault on one of my favorite Christian cultural warriors, I take notice. That's what happened this week as the latest issue of the magazine offered up what can only be described as a character assassination of Ted Baehr, publisher of MovieGuide and founder of the Christian Film and...

    Augustine's "just war" theory continues to guide the West.The fall of Rome in 410 was a calamity of staggering proportions to the citizens of the Roman Empire. Civilization itself had been shaken to its foundations. So it was viewed by Augustine, from his vantage point on the North African coast. But he worried not so much about the empire as about the threat of a backlash to Christianity. Hadn't critics warned for years that Christians' pacifism would weaken the empire? Didn't this confirm the fears that Christianity was too other-worldly for its followers to be responsible citizens of the state?...
