  • Why the truth doesn't matter (to the Candidates)

    The Huffington Post ^ | 10/29/2012 | Todd Phillips
    After the first presidential debate, Factcheck.org reported, "We found exaggerations and false claims flying thick and fast during the first debate between President Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney... Romney sometimes came off as a serial exaggerator." The Washington Post found that "Both President Obama and former governor Mitt Romney tossed out a blizzard of statistics and facts, often of dubious origin." In the second presidential debate, the candidates were again found to be less than truthful. (SNIP) It wasn't just in the debates that the truth was ignored. The New York Times reported that when Mitt Romney and...

    LOCKPORT, NY - Last week, 2 On Your Side reported on the spike of shootings in the City of Lockport this year. While we were in Lockport, police gave us a mug shot of a man suspected of some of the shootings. And, on the mug shot appeared a phrase that can be offensive to many people. The mug shot was of 19-year-old Shamir Allen. He's a suspect in several shootings in the city. We looked further on the mug shot and found next to line labeled "complexion," that Allen is listed as a "negro." Next to negro it reads...

    “In Adam’s fall, we sinned all.” So begins the New England Primer, which taught generations of early Americans to read. In introducing our forefathers to the letter A, the primer was also administering a generous dose of biblical theology. As Paul puts it crisply in 1 Corinthians 15:22, “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.” Through Adam, sin and death entered into the world. By Christ, sin and death were conquered. Adam forfeited life by his disobedience. Christ achieved life by His obedience. These simple, basic truths, Paul tells the Corinthians, are...

    During his farewell remarks in the White House East Room on August 9, 1974, President Richard Milhous Nixon told the truth. Nixon remains a controversial and tarnished historical figure. But his impact on America was significant. Only Franklin Roosevelt’s name appeared on as many national ballots (five). His presidency, though now remembered by many for the way it ended, was actually filled with great achievement and success in many ways. Nixon was a brilliant visionary. But he also had a weakness. It was a failure to tell the truth that became Nixon’s undoing. The highly publicized tapes of what he...

    Do I as a living, breathing, conscious person have a concrete hope for my future? What do I have to look forward to? At times, when I discover that my own spirit is sagging and a sense of heaviness intrudes on me, I sometimes wonder why the gloomy cloud is perched above my head. Biblical eschatology gives us solid reasons for expecting a personal continuity of life. Eternal life for the individual is not an empty human aspiration built on myth, but an assurance promised us by Christ Himself. His own triumph over the grave is the church’s hope for...

    Americans who oppose same-sex marriage often face "intolerance" from those who support it, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida said Wednesday in a speech about values that appeared aimed at wooing social conservatives. In remarks he said were likely to get him criticized as a bigot, the Florida Republican told an audience at Catholic University that a strong America is impossible without Americans who hold strong values. Seeming to seek a debate over those values, he criticized liberals who defend abortion rights for women but not protections for "the unborn."

She went on to write, “I do not want him. I have no use for him. I have no missionary zeal at all.” While many Christians likely attempt to project a little more enthusiasm for evangelism, I’m not sure they do not, deep down, resonate with Sayers’ sentiment. With the relentless barrage of new atheist bravado over the last decade, believers are liable to grow weary in...

When asked by The Washington Post whether he supports gay marriage, in light of a Florida judge's decision last week to overturn the state's ban, Jolly said that his personal views on marriage are that it should be limited to one man and one woman. But, he added, states should not be defining the "sanctity" of marriage.

    The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. Last month, 523,000 full-time jobs were lost, while 799,000 part-time jobs were added. Another way of looking at these numbers is that almost all of the 288,000 jobs created last...

This He did in the second chapter of Genesis where God, having created both groom and bride, brought them together personally (2:22) and a benediction was pronounced over the couple; Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife and they shall become one flesh (2:24, ESV; see also Mt. 19:4-5). For this reason, Christian believers do now hold and have always held that marriage is...

    Elaine Soto and her family left New Jersey at 3 a.m. on Thursday to come to the March for Marriage in Washington. She brought her four children to “open their eyes to the fact they don’t have to shrink.
