By Galen Dalrymple War has been declared on Christianity. While I am tempted to say that no one can say with precision when this war started, that would not be true. It started when the Founder of our faith was born. The ruler of the tiny country where Jesus was born, King Herod, tried to kill him then and individuals and governments have been trying ever since to kill Him and His church.  The war has waxed and waned throughout… Read more

A Christian Reflects on the Incarnation By Peter Wehner As a person of the Christian faith, obviously I find Advent to be a significant time, a time worth reflecting upon. And in reflecting on not just the birth but the life of Jesus, I’m often struck by just how difficult it is for many of us to accept Him on His terms rather than on ours. We’re constantly trying to fit Jesus into our cultural, theological and political boxes. The… Read more

With apologies to H.L. Mencken, it appears that leftism is the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may disagree with me. Read more

A guest post from Mark Tooley, President of the Institute on Religion and Democracy: A new poll by Pew Research, just in time for Christmas, shows 73 percent of Americans believe in Jesus’ virgin birth by His mother Mary. Even 32 percent of the self-professed religiously unaffiliated said they believe.  White evangelicals were the most believing (97%), followed by black Protestants (94%), white Catholics (88%), Hispanic Catholics (81%) and Mainline Protestants (70%).  By comparison, other polls show about one third… Read more

Atheism might be in vogue, but it — for sure — hasn’t helped history as much as Christianity.  Believing in God is not only among the most reasonable ideas in history; it is among its most helpful. It is all too easy to look around the modern world and conclude that there is no place for the Church. The educational system is pervasively liberal, the media jumps at the chance to shame an odd-thinking church, and atheist organizations have long… Read more

A guest post from Mark Tooley, President of the Institute on Religion and Democracy: * Amid all the justified accolades for Nelson Mandela there’s been some online skirmishing between a few on the right insisting Mandela was a Marxist and some on the left lambasting prominent conservatives 30 years ago (William Buckley, Richard Cheney) who condemned Mandela.  Neither seems to appreciate the full arc of history and instead both score their points as though history stopped decades ago. After Mandela… Read more

Americans do not know much about history and when know a little we tend to Americanize it. Like American cheese product, this American history product is sort-of-like history, but also not very good: either for you or for consumption.  Examples of American history product abound: World War I was waiting until America came to get it ended. The League of Nations failed because America did not join it. The American left often thinks America caused more problems than we have… Read more

From Johnnie Moore: America’s view of its own elected Congress has declined so dramatically that now, according to one poll, Americans prefer hemorrhoids, fungus, jury duty, dog feces and potholes over congress. Even the IRS and the DMV had higher approval ratings (I am not making this up!). Congress only had an edge on serial-killer Charles Manson, Russia’s Vladimir Putin (probably exactly how he likes it!), and we can all be grateful they preferred Congress over Miley Cyrus’ “twerking.” I know Congress has a… Read more

By Michelle Brock * Dear Justin, I recently met a Brazilian woman who used to sell sex to wealthy businessmen, dignitaries, and celebrities. Some might call her a “high class prostitute.” She initially entered the trade in a desperate attempt to feed her children, and she made great money as one of the brothel favorites. But she never saw much of it – “third parties” always found a way to leave her with nothing. Eventually, she was promised a better… Read more
