Dr. Jerry Newcombe: “God’s Work” is Killing Babies?
Is it “God’s Work” to kill the unborn? President Obama seemed to say so recently.
Steven Ertelt wrote an article, “Obama Says His Pro-Abortion Supporters are ‘Doing God’s Work,’” for lifenews.com (2/26/14).
Ertelt notes, “At an event in Washington last night, President Barack Obama told his liberal, pro-abortion supporters who are members of his political group Organizing for Action that they are ‘Doing God’s Work.’”
Bryan Fischer: The battle over gay rights is THE battle, there is no other
America’s future will be determined by one thing and one thing only: whether the forces of light or darkness will win the battle over special rights based on sexually deviant behavior.
This is for the simple reason that America must choose between homosexuality and religious freedom, between sodomy and liberty. There is no middle ground. As columnist Matt Lewis put it, the clash is a “zero-sum” game. Somebody wins and somebody else loses.
Ray Rooney, Jr.: What’s the End Game?
It’s funny the way people want to advertise their affiliations and persuasions. Bumper stickers, wind socks, shirts and hats, emblems and magnets stuck to cars, coffee cups, refrigerator magnets, vanity license plates, buttons, et al are proudly displayed to let everyone around a person know everything from how smart their child is to which college or university they support to what their political persuasion is to what they believe theologically. It really is nonsensical because I never heard of anyone changing brands of lawn mowers because they saw someone wearing a John Deere cap. Has anyone ever chosen their college or university based on seeing a university wind sock attached to a car window? Do you think anyone has forsaken their Christian faith because they pulled up behind a car with an ichthus with legs and the word “Darwin” in it?
Kerby Anderson: Blessings and Judgment
Is God blessing America? Will God bring judgment against America? These are questions I often hear, and yet rarely do we hear good answers to these questions. Part of the reason is that Christians haven’t really studied the subject of blessings and judgment.
In this article we deal with this difficult and controversial subject. While we may not be able to come to definitive answers to all of these questions, I think we will have a better understanding of what blessings and judgment are from a biblical perspective.
Chuck Norris: Alcohol, marijuana and American youth, Part 2
A few weeks ago in Part 1, I began to show from extensive studies and evidence how alcohol and marijuana use compare regarding addiction, withdrawals and using motorized vehicles.
This week in Part 2, I will discuss in greater detail how alcohol and marijuana compare in their effects on our minds, bodies and relationships. And then I want to conclude addressing the most overlooked aspect of the marijuana legalization debate: its effects on the youth of America.
David Limbaugh: A Chilling Proposal
Any freedom-loving person would be outraged at the attempt by the Federal Communications Commission to inject itself into monitoring the practices of print and broadcast media organizations, but the outrage came almost exclusively from conservatives, which is highly instructive.
But liberals and conservatives are on such different planets that they don't even agree that this development -- that only conservatives objected -- is instructive, which is also instructive.
Mike Adams: Squeegee People
My readers may or may not have heard of squeegee people. Those of you who haven't need to hear about them. This is especially true if you spend much time traveling by car, particularly in big cities.
Squeegee people will approach your car in traffic in some major cities holding a squeegee in one hand and a cup in the other hand. They will start cleaning your windshield without securing your permission. When they are done, they hold out their cup expecting to be compensated for their "work." But paying them isn't optional. It's required. Anyone who refuses gets the side of his car keyed with the metal frame of the squeegee. It's a form of extortion that street people learned from politicians who shake down corporations they later accuse of representing "powerful special interest groups."
Chuck Norris: A Force More Powerful Than Oscar
I don't have to explain to anyone how television is much more risque, with some programs being downright lewd, than it was decades ago. But I want to tell you about something that can change the course of values in television and movies.
Once upon a time, about as edgy as it got was Barbara Eden's "I Dream of Jeannie" character, who showed her trim tummy, and Elvis swinging his pelvis on "The Ed Sullivan Show" -- though the broadcast screen only captured the upper half of his body as he did.
Bryan Fischer: Our last, best hope to restore the Republic: Governor Rick Perry
Gov. Rick Perry of Texas may be our last, best hope of reclaiming America and returning it to its constitutional foundations.
Gov. Perry can do this by ignoring or better yet flatly defying federal Judge Orlando L. Garcia’s blatantly unconstitutional, immoral and illegal ruling overturning the Texas marriage amendment.
Dr. Jerry Newcombe: What Changed the Vikings?
I saw an advertisement recently for a series on the History Channel on the Vikings. A viewer’s guide blurb reads, “Chronicling the medieval adventures of a band of Norsemen.”
“Adventures”? I guess that’s one way to put it. They went around killing people, raping women, stealing, and destroying things.
Bryan Fischer: Jim Crow is back: NFL to Arizona: you can’t sit at our lunch counter
We’re hearing a lot about the reinstatement of segregationist Jim Crow laws these days, as homosexual activists fling this accusation at the state of Arizona. They argue that SB1062, a bill which simply protects religious liberty in the Copper State, is tantamount to the reinstatement of discriminatory laws.
As so often is the case, the situation is actually the reverse. It is in fact the bullies and bigots of Big Gay who are reinstating Jim Crow laws, only this time the marginalized and segregated Americans are Christian businessmen. Faith-driven vendors are being told that unless they submit to the owners of the liberal plantation, they will be punished by their homosexualized overlords and sent to the margins of society.
Ray Rooney, Jr.: He Went Away
Have you ever stopped to consider who made the first attempt on Jesus’ life as a grown man? Luke tells the story in the fourth chapter of his Gospel. It was His hometown synagogue! The people who knew Him better than anyone else (outside of His family). That’s right. It wasn’t the Romans or the high priest or the Pharisees. It was the people who had come to worship in the local synagogue in Nazareth where Jesus grew up. Isn’t that something? They went to worship God and dismissed so they could kill Him.
Bryan Fischer: Refugee status should be reserved for Christians fleeing Muslim persecution
There are hundreds, even thousands, of Syrian Muslim "refugees" who are now in New Jersey, none of whom have been vetted for possible jihadists sympathies. They have no intention of assimilating to American life and culture but rather have sought out existing Muslim neighborhoods in which to live.
It is my position that the only Syrian refugees we should allow to come to our shores are Christians who are fleeing Muslim persecution in their native land. There are plenty of those, as Muslims have destroyed homes, churches and entire villages just because they belong to followers of Christ. But President Obama’s administration routinely denies refuge to the victims of Islam.
Chuck Norris: Chuck Norris tells Olympics' most inspiring tales
Chuck, thank you for your inspiring column last week on Olympic champion snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg. I don’t want to take away from his or any other’s deserved golden glory, but in a country where sports figures’ character is not always – shall we say – exemplary, don’t you think we should also commend Olympic champions who truly show gold medal attitudes in the face of defeat? – “Looking Out for Losers” in Louisiana
There are those who are champions on courses of competition. Then there are those who are victors in their caliber of character, too. In our often wayward world, the latter ought to be given not just a gold medal but a golden crown.
Mike Adams: The Trees
Author’s Note: This is a column I wrote back a few years ago but never published. Instead, it appeared in abbreviated form in my latest book,Letters to a Young Progressive. Given recent political trends, I thought it would be good to publish it in its original extended form.
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the books of Ayn Rand. After escaping from the Soviet Union in the 1920s, Rand became a famous American playwright, philosopher, and novelist. She has written many books – three of which I would urge everyone to read. The first, Anthem, is a lot like Orwell’s 1984. The second, The Fountainhead, is a longer novel expounding on her philosophy, which is known as objectivism. The third, Atlas Shrugged, is her most famous work and includes the most complete explanation of her views on economics and morality.
Bryan Fischer: Arizona law does not cause discrimination, it PREVENTS it
Arizona’s new religious liberty bill is exactly that - a bill that protects the religious liberty of faith-driven businessmen in the Copper State. Lawmakers there are seeking to prevent the truly un-American and shameful things that have happened in New Mexico, Oregon and Colorado where wedding vendors are facing state-imposed penalties, including possible jail time, for simply running their businesses according to deeply-held religious values.
