    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 5/9/2010 | Msgr Charles Pope
    I have marveled over the years at the kind of fear and anger the Christian Faith generates in some sectors of our society. Even the suggestion that there might a a small nativity scene in a park, or Christmas tree near City Hall, or a display of the Ten Commandments often elicits a hew and cry and brings forth camera crews and elicits lawsuits. But the venom seems especially reserved  for symbols of the Christian faith in particular and to some extent the wider Judeo-Christian heritage. A reference from the Q’ran in school is seen by many of this same...

    September 6, 2012 DNC PROVES VOTING FRAUD IS A REALITY Joel B. Pollak Yesterday, the nation watched in shock and amusement as Democrats stole a vote--from themselves. Against clear evidence to the contrary, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared that proposed amendments to the Democratic Party platform--re-inserting “God” and a commitment to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital--had passed with the necessary two-thirds majority. It was fraud, pure and simple; even CNN wasn’t buying it.Nonetheless, Democrats and their allies continue to insist that voter fraud is something that never happens. The NAACP, for instance, has just issued a statement declaring: “There's a...

I was relieved. He told the graduates and their guests, "People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology. Surely the answer is that we can meet in service, in shared moral convictions about our nation stemming from...

    Azusa Pacific University Men’s Choir Sings in Capitol Rotunda on Gohmert Led Tour Washington, DC –Last night, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) gave the Azusa Pacific University Choir a tour of the United States Capitol. The men’s choir provided music for the 2012 National Day of Prayer events in Washington, D.C. During an after hour tour, the choir preformed an impromptu acapella, but powerfully moving rendition of Holy, Holy, Holy, in the Rotunda of our nation's Capitol. Surrounded by so many evidences of God's blessings on this nation, the echoing notes certainly moved those present and just might move you as...

    While the writing and illustrations in Amelia Hamilton’s, “One Nation Under God: A Book for Little Patriots,” are catered towards children, the book’s message is anything but childish. Patriotic to its core, the book teaches children about the basic and essential elements of U.S. government and history in an engaging and delightful manner. From ‘One Nation Under God’ to ‘Ten Amendments in the Bill of Rights,’ the book counts its way through the significant building blocks of America. Hamilton’s background in both English and 18th century history shows, as she knows how to fuse fact with fun when writing...

    Asheville, N.C. — God and country are the theme of battling billboards sprouting up across North Carolina. The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that billboards with the message "one nation, under God" are going up across the state. They're a response to billboards placed in six North Carolina cities by the North Carolina Secular Association. Those signs with the message "one nation indivisible" drop the words "under God," which were added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954. The group says it wanted to show that nonbelievers are patriotic. A coalition called We Still Pray has bought space on six electronic billboards...

At their Dec. 9 meeting, school board members were asked to eliminate the pledge from their meetings by parent Matthew Barry. “The words ‘under God’ in the pledge are offensive to your atheist residents in this school district,” Barry said at the meeting. “A study from last year, The American Religious Identification Survey, indicates that 15 percent of Americans aren’t religious.

The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm, is urging Americans to avoid using the coins altogether.

The flags are purchased and flown at constituents' requests, and include personal messages that until last week could not...

    Court Ducks 'In God We Trust' Case (CBS) WASHINGTON Supreme Court on Monday sidestepped a dispute over the constitutionality of putting "In God We Trust" on government buildings. Earlier this year justices were splintered on the appropriateness of Ten Commandments displays in and near government buildings. The court did not comment in rejecting an appeal over an "In God We Trust" inscription on the Davidson County Government Center in Lexington, N.C. The inscription, in 18-inch block letters, was paid for with donations from individuals and churches in 2002. It is more prominent than the name of the building, according to...

Even though a recent Gallup Poll shows that nine out of ten Americans believe in God, strangely enough there are those who are convinced that the bedrock of the creation of the United States is based solely on secular principles rather than religious ones. There is a reason why the Ten Commandments, Scripture quotations and beautiful artwork depicting biblical scenes...

So tonight's reading assignment is "A Stone of Hope" by David L. Chappell. "A Stone of Hope" is actually a history of the civil rights movement, but it's impossible to read the book without doing some fundamental rethinking about the role religion can play in schools and public life. According to Chappell, there were actually two camps within the civil rights movement. First, there were the mainstream liberals,...
