    Social conservatism has long allowed itself to be painted as bloodless, largely irrelevant political Protestantism; an alliance of Evangelicals who have climbed into bed with the most myopic fringe movements in America. At the same time we have allowed the Left to co-opt issues that are central to achieving the goals of social conservatism: maintaining the traditions and values of Western Civilization in general and America (the pinnacle of Western civilization) in particular. While we find a hundred different ways to disapprove of gays or pornography or the idea that someone, somewhere is enjoying themselves in ways we find unseemly,...

A New York television star who is a long-time friend of the couple said: ‘Elton and David have...

    Young adults with college degrees are now more likely to be married than those who are less educated, a reversal of longtime trends as the struggling economy pushes weddings to all-time lows. About 62 percent of college-educated 30-year-olds were married or had been married, compared with 60 percent of those without a bachelor's degree, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data. That is a significant shift from the 1990s, when young adults who didn't finish college were more likely to have wed than their better-educated counterparts, 75 percent to 69 percent. -- More than 9 in 10...

    PHOENIX – The son of former Vice President Dan Quayle won the Republican primary for an Arizona congressional seat after a provocative campaign that had no shortage of drama. Ben Quayle emerged from a crowded field Tuesday in the fight for an open seat in a Republican-leaning district in the Phoenix area. He drew on his family connections to raise more than $1.3 million — and made plenty of headlines along the way. In a campaign ad, he called President Barack Obama "the worst president in history" and vowed to "knock the hell" out of Washington. ~snip~ Quayle, 33, grew...

    TENANCINGO, Mexico -- In this impoverished town in central Mexico, a sinister trade has taken root: Entire extended families exploit desperation and lure hundreds of unsuspecting young Mexican women to the United States to force them into prostitution. Those who know the pimps of Tlaxcala state - victims, prosecutors, social workers and researchers - say the men from Tenancingo have honed their methods over at least three generations.

    WATERVILLE, Wash. — An argument over butter in a macaroni and cheese recipe churned into violence between a brother and sister. A 21-year-old man called police June 6 to say his 17-year-old sister tried to cut his neck with the serrated edge of a spatula. The police report said the sister was making macaroni and cheese when her brother asked if she was using butter. That led to an argument over the difference between butter and margarine. And, then butter battle escalated. The Wenatchee World reported the girl was charged in Douglas County Superior Court with fourth-degree assault.

Limbaugh, 59, is set to marry 33-year-old girlfriend Kathryn Rogers on Saturday at the talk radio star's palatial Florida beachfront property. Although Limbaugh never seems at a loss for words, he's been uncharacteristically quiet about the pending nuptials.

    Alex Butterworth is the President of the right-of-center West Australian Young Liberals. For the record, I find some of his views indigestible. However, some of Butterworth’s arguments are also brilliant, or at least thought-provoking. Certainly they’re never boring and like Christopher Hitchens he doesn’t muck about. Exhibit One: "The debate around family values in Australia has taken a turn for the worse during the last few decades. In modern Australian politics, standing up for family values means finding a plethora of new ways to spend taxpayer dollars. Governments of all persuasions think up new ways to throw money at parents,...

  • Value of Family Reunions and Genealogy

    Some years ago a read an article in a woman's magazine concerning a large extended family that held family reunions every year. The number of attendents were in the hundreds and included many distant cousins. It seems like family reunions could have a great value to society. Family is the original form of "networking". Having a large extended family or clan provides many levels of support for the individual and nuclear family. These large family networks can provide spiritual and emotional support as well as practical support in helping members with their finances or in job hunting. Today American families...

    Family squabbles are almost inevitable. As the warm Washtenaw County weather begins to seep into our lives and the longer winter and soon-to-be spring sunlit days become longer and longer, the family visits and the accompanying ritualistic arguments are just around the corner. You know what happens. You are going to prepare the kids and the spouse for what seems to be a “we’re-finally-out-of-the-house weekend visit with the first in a rotation of family siblings and their kids or irritating brother-in-law or “know-it-all” sister-in-law. Been there and seen it before? Well there are a number of ways that this can...
