  • Philly's cold shoulder

    The youth of Philadelphia are in danger. There are as many as 3,900 homeless families in Philadelphia. Only about half of Philadelphia ninth-graders graduate from high school within four years, and last year's state standardized math and reading tests came back to 11th graders in Philadelphia public schools with 70 percent of scores below proficient. In 2006, 1,030 young Philadelphians between the ages of 7 and 24 were shot; 179 kids were murdered. On such a battlefield, it would make sense for the City of Philadelphia to partner with churches and non-profit organizations to provide after-school programs, youth sports leagues,...

    The death of manlinesshttp://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=52283 Posted: October 5, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern Mark Foley is a sick man in a sick culture. He apparently was abused by a priest as a child, and then he, too, abused House pages (how extensively is uncertain) before it ruined him. By the way, as his attorney affirmed on Tuesday, Mark Foley "is a gay man." Aside from the political tides generated by Foley's resignation, there are much larger cultural tsunamis swashing round. The Foley scandal intensifies the strain on relationships between youth and adults. It is particularly damaging for relations between old men and...

    The Calling of Our Generationhttp://magic-city-news.com/article_6655.shtml By Hans Zeiger Sep 18, 2006, 10:43 "The war against this enemy is more than a military conflict. It is the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century, and the calling of our generation." These are the words of President Bush on September 11, five years after the attacks. If Baby Boomers doubt that this present war is the calling of their generation, the children of the Boomers-at least the rising leaders among them-have little doubt that it is theirs. On the eve of September 11, 2006, nearly 150 Hillsdale College students gathered for a...

    Fickle Philly punishes Boy Scoutshttp://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=51251 Posted: July 27, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Hans Zeiger It is a violent summer in Philadelphia. Drug-related gang violence plagues the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. But one of the most outrageous attacks comes from the office of Philadelphia Mayor John Street. It is aimed at the Boy Scouts. Nearly eight decades ago – 1928 – the city of Philadelphia granted the local Cradle of Liberty Boy Scouts Council property at the corner of 22nd and Winter Streets "in perpetuity." Now, because the Boy Scouts believe as much in moral principle as...

That was the city's arrangement for its leased land to the Scouts at 22d and Winter Streets, where today sits the headquarters of the Cradle of Liberty Boy Scout Council. In exchange for the city property, the Boy Scouts have contributed countless "good turns" to Philadelphia. A good turn is an act of kindness, a volunteer project, a daily decision to invest in the lives of others. Scouting teaches boys to...

    Testimony, not Biographyhttp://scoutoath.tripod.com/id17.html By Hans Zeiger I once went to a car race where most of the cars were marked with the names and logos of their sponsors and drivers. Only one car stood out. This one was a sprint car, and it carried a simple message on the side: “Jesus is Lord.” As I watched the racers zoom around the track, I reflected on the difference between that car and all the rest. The race is now but a flash of memory – the dust settled, the fans went home, perhaps the prize money was spent – but that...

"This is a small taste of what heaven must be like," said the Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson, Bishop of New Hampshire, as he began his sermon to the prolonged cheers of the adoring congregation.

    The Episcopal Church in America is dying. A recent Gallup poll shows that Episcopals have the lowest weekly church attendance rate of any Christian denomination; only one in three Episcopals go to church every week. Only the non-religious and Jews register lower religious service attendance than Episcopals. Gallup interviewed 11,000 adult Americans between 2002 and 2005 to find that 44 percent of Americans attend church weekly or almost weekly. Episcopals are not only far below the national average, they are far below the average for mainline Protestant denominations. Episcopal in-house statistics tell the same story. In the Blue Book for...

    "Conservative youth" was once considered an oxymoron. The British Social Attitudes Survey published in 2004 demonstrated that young Brits born around the time of Margaret Thatcher's conservative term as prime minister are personally conservative. They side with their parents on many issues, causing the Guardian to declare that "the age of teenage rebellion is over" in its Dec. 7, 2004, issue. The British press calls them "Thatcher's Children." "Thatcher's Children" was coined to describe England's economically conservative young people. The Adam Smith Institute polled British youth that were between the ages of 16 and 21 at the turn of the...

    2006: Turning point for young conservatives Posted: January 5, 2006 By Hans Zeiger Something big is going on in America, but few are yet aware of it. It is a generational shift comparable to that of the infamous '60s, and it will involve as much revolt and upheaval. In this case, revolution is desperately needed, for the previous revolution has almost destroyed the country. The new revolution will repair the country. Yet 2006 will not be the beginning of the revolution – it has already been gathering steam now for several years. But it will, I predict, commence the vigorous...

    If, as President Bush said last year, it is to be “liberty’s century,” the members of the Fourteenth Generation are the appointed guardians. The first chapter of Matthew’s Gospel opens the New Testament with a genealogy. It is a Christmas list -- not a wish list, but a Providential list. It is the outworking of God’s Hand in the generations through history, culminating in the birth of Christ. Matthew 1:17 summarizes the genealogy. “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying...

    This week, hundreds of young conservatives from college and university campuses across America are gathering at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., for the annual Young America's Foundation Conference. They are hip, intelligent, politically savvy, and the most determined group of campus activists since the 1960's radicals. As the hippie professors' pony tails wax grayer and grayer, the rising generation of conservative students grows stronger and stronger. No one knows the burgeoning power of the conservative movement on America's college campuses like the far-Left activists whose efforts these days are consistently less persuasive, less civil, and less consequential.

    The year 2007 would have marked the 100th birthday of Boy Scouting in England. Unfortunately, the British Boy Scouts, founded by Lord Robert Baden-Powell as the first Scouting group in the world, is now a dead organization. The recent decision by U.K. Scout Association executives to make chaos of the Scout Oath mangles the program far beyond anything Baden-Powell might recognize. Instead of being required to pledge their loyalty to "God and the Queen," members of the Scout Association can now opt to swear allegiance to any combination of things. Muslims can pledge to Allah, Hindus to Dharma, and atheists...

    The Boy Scouts is not a hate group comparable to Hitler Youth (“brown shirt” has become common epithet against the Scouts) or the Ku Klux Klan, or a militant terrorist corps like the Taliban (as the Philadelphia Daily News editorialized). Neither is it a church (as federal Judge Napoleon Jones defined it) or a public accommodation (as several courts have defined it).

    The National Abortion Rights Action League's youth coalition, Generation Pro-Choice, dispatched an email this week with the headline "Rumors of Gen Pro-Choicers demise are greatly exaggerated." Interestingly, it didn't say that the "rumors" were false, only that they were exaggerated. It is increasingly clear to NARAL, though subtly expressed, that the demise of the Left is imminent. I am convinced that the political strength of conservatives, so evident in the gains of the 2004 election, is a reflection of a more permanent conservative impulse that runs deeply in the American character. But conservatism is not the chief threat to liberalism;...

    Nearly a century has passed since Lord Robert Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts in Great Britain.

Young men might have annihilated this world had it not been for the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts have always been a great threat to the utopian dreams of the ideologues.

    Scouts Canada ceased to serve any useful purpose the day they became all-inclusive, all-sensitive, and all-tolerant. Big Canadian real estate is on the market.

Scouts Canada is pounding in "for sale" signs at the entrances of a number of Scout camps across the country, including at least twenty camps in Ontario. But don't worry. No Boy Scouts will mourn the loss of their summer camps, for the Boy Scouts of Canada no longer exist. Thinking they could become more inclusive,...

That's the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood during its 2002-2003 fiscal year, according to its newly released annual report. If Planned Parenthood's death toll is measured in addition to abortions performed in hospitals other than Planned Parenthood, it is by far the leading cause of death in the United States today. The victims of abortion are much younger than those who die of heart disease, cancer or stroke. Purveyors of the leading...

    A student at Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis emailed me to say that a 12-foot decorated Christmas tree disappeared from her school atrium on December 2. Students received an email from the Dean for External Affairs, explaining: "The tree came down because there were members of the law school community who thought it was divisive and inappropriate. The school will be putting up another holiday decoration to replace it---I think today--if at all possible. There were individuals who believed that the tree sent the wrong message to the law school community and would make some people feel excluded."...

    At Royal Oak Intermediate School in Covina, California, students in Len Cesene's seventh grade history class fasted last week to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Mr. Cesene's 12 and 13-year old students are the latest to become part of a growing Islamic indoctrination craze sweeping through America's schools. Mr. Cesene's letter to parents explained that, "in an attempt to promote a greater understanding and empathy towards the Muslim religion and toward other culture, I am encouraging students to participate in an extra credit assignment. Students may choose to fast for one, two or three days. During this time,...

    Of all the holidays in the year, Thanksgiving is perhaps most incompatible with the moral dispositions of Generation Y. It is not that we refuse to partake of the turkey and mashed potatoes, nor that we refrain from watching the football games on television. Rather, we are ungrateful for most everything we have. We are a thankless generation. I may sound like a pessimist, but my premise is basically positive. My generation is materially blessed beyond what any other generation before us has ever had. A typical, middle-class 18-year-old is endowed with a fairly new car with a fancy stereo...

    Columnists' Corner "The College Slavery Tour" By Hans Zeiger Fresh from his failed California gubernatorial campaign, pornographer Larry Flynt recently lectured at college campuses around the country as part of an effort by the American Civil Liberties Union to recruit students to join their lethal cause. In the past few weeks, Flynt has made celebrity appearances at Harvard University, the University of Miami and the University of California at Berkeley. "Freedom of speech is not for the thought you love but for the thought you hate the most," Flynt declared to one audience. Hate speech is the appropriate label...

    FRN Columnists' Corner "Clinton and Character " By Hans Zeiger When I was nine years old, I didn't consider Bill Clinton much of a role model. I saved an 18-point list I compiled in 1994 titled, "Bad Bill: Problems with the present President." In my unsophisticated list, I included: He secretly does uncalled-for things in the White House. He was supposed to act as a soldier in the Vietnam War. He even said he would. He then tricked officials to escape fighting for our country when he was needed. He eats too many hamburgers, which makes him fat. Clinton made...

    FRN Columnists' Corner "Shutting down the Scouts " by Hans Zeiger"A Scout is trustworthy." But the City of Philadelphia isn't keeping a 75-year old promise to the Boy Scouts. In 1928, the Philadelphia City Council took note of the good turns that the Boy Scouts were doing throughout the city. The city council voted in favor of allowing the Cradle of Liberty Boy Scout Council to utilize a half-acre plot of public land at 22nd and Winter Streets "in perpetuity." By 1929, construction of the Boy Scout Resource Center was complete. Today, three quarters of a century later, Philadelphia's Cradle...

    FRN Columnists' Corner "America Without Jesus " By Hans Zeiger By Hans Zeiger When administrators of Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore, Washington launched an engraved brick fundraiser to build a playground, Dan and Olga Buchanan put in $100 for a brick in their name. In August, the Buchanans received a letter from the playground coordinator telling them that the brick was unconstitutional because it contained the words, "Thank you Jesus." In her letter, the playground coordinator wrote, "Because the Saint Edward State Park Playground is located on public land, our intent and unwritten policy for all of the 511...

    Pledge Allegiance to the ACLU By Hans Zeiger The Pledge of Allegiance is doing irreparable harm to the minds and hearts of America’s schoolchildren. So alleges an ACLU lawsuit against the State of Colorado for its new law requiring the daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools. This time, it isn’t just about “One Nation Under God.” Now, the American Civil Liberties Union wants to get rid of the whole pledge. On August 12, the ACLU filed suit in federal district court on behalf of “students and teachers throughout the state” who seem to be offended...

    As hundreds of Boy Scouts were enjoying summer camp at Camp Balboa in San Diego last week, the ACLU was handed a U.S. District Court ruling condemning the Scouts for occupying the camp on leased public land. Soon, the Scouts could be kicked out of their historic 16-acre camp and council headquarters building. With "overwhelming and uncontradicted evidence," Judge Napoleon Jones found that the Boy Scouts are a religious organization and they were given preferential treatment when the City of San Diego first agreed to let the Boy Scouts utilize public land in Balboa Park nearly nine decades ago. In...
