    The Post story, "In BrazilÂ’s political crisis, a powerful new force: Evangelical Christians," is an amazing account from a liberal perspective of how Christian conservatives are taking back their country. One leading critic of the ruling Workers Party in Brazil said, "We saw that communism was in their DNA." We saw this coming more than a year ago in our story, "Anti-Marxist Counter-Revolution in Brazil." The obvious question is, Can it happen here? The answer is, Not with Trump. Andrew Chesnut, a Latin America expert and professor of religious studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, is quoted as saying, "They think...

    Last week’s Virginia Register contained the final publication of Radford University’s campus weapons ban. This may seem rather sudden to those familiar with the rather long and complex ‘notice and comment’ process by which most regulations are promulgated in Virginia. After all, the regulation was only first voted on by the Radford University Board of Visitors on Friday September 14th. --IMAGE HERE-- However, thanks to the ill-advised fast-track regulatory power granted to state-operated colleges and universities by § 2.2-4002(A)(6), the regulation becomes effective immediately upon publication without any public notice or comment period as would normally be the case with...

"What people need to know is what a kind person he was; he was full of life, full of laughter and connecting with people," she said. But Thursday night, the new world shared by VCU students Tyler J. Binsted and his 21-year-old girlfriend turned upside down at Richmond's Byrd Park. "They got my keys and opened the trunk of my car," Binsted's girlfriend said yesterday, her face drawn, her eyes dry as sand. One of the two assailants had a...

And more than 30 of you visited the message board to voice your own opinions. Here is a sample of what you said: >I am for gun rights but changing this could endanger lives, it's all about someone having the power to say no to carrying a...

    Benjamin Fawley, a suspect in the death of Taylor Marie Behl, told police that the Vienna teenager died accidentally while they were having a sexual encounter, an attorney representing Behl's mother said yesterday. Her grieving mother disputed the account. "Let's be clear -- Ben Fawley murdered my daughter," Janet Pelasara said during a hastily arranged news conference outside her attorney's McLean office. "His claim that it was accidental is just one more perversion of the truth in his ever-changing web of lies." Fawley told investigators that he had consensual sex with Behl in her car parked near a beach in...
