Ted Cruz Does Not Stand Alone

tedcruz2 With his inspirational and unprecedented show of leadership on the floor of the U.S. Senate this past week, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, made hundreds of enemies in Washington. But more importantly, he made millions of friends across America. When you have both liberal Democrats and mealy-mouthed establishment RINOs (Republicans in name only) allying against you, you know you’ve got the bead over the beltway “good ol’ boys’” center-mass. Mr. Cruz emasculated, delightfully, Obama’s political Read more [...] Continue reading →

Trail Life USA: Alternative to the Boy Scouts is Here!

Trail Life USA It was Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 6, 2013. The huge hall was overflowing, the convention sold out. Over 1,200 attendees, with many spilling out into the foyer, eagerly awaited the announcement. What would this safe, moral and non-sexualized alternative to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) look like? With a stirring introductory video came the answer: “Trail Life USA” would now endeavor to “be the premier national character development organization for young men, which produces godly and responsible Read more [...] Continue reading →

‘Gays’ Forced to Serve Homosexual Haters

Gay Cupcakes At least Oregon is applying its anti-discrimination laws evenhandedly when it comes to cupcakes. Interesting story out of Gresham: The Oregonian is reporting that Bruce Bottoms – a homosexual baker and owner of “Cakes By Cupcakes” – has been charged with anti-Christian discrimination by the Oregon Ministry of Human Rights (OMHR). Mr. Bottoms and his partner, Lance Limpkowski, recently declined to bake a cake for the notoriously anti-“gay” Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). As a result, they’ve Read more [...] Continue reading →

‘Gay’ Lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll Take Your Children’

change_sign Few people doubt that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hopes to become president in 2016. Unfortunately for him, he may have just signed away any chance of that. Last week, Christie signed A3371, a draconian piece of legislation that bars licensed therapists from helping children overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior, or identity. This law bans help for minors even when – as is so often the case – those same-sex attractions arise from childhood sexual abuse by the likes of a Jerry Read more [...] Continue reading →

Liberals Want to ‘Rehabilitate’ Christians

Squeez brain The homofascist rainbow-shirts are at it again. They’ve unsheathed, once more, their anti-Christian long knives. Back in April, I wrote “Religious freedom and ‘gay marriage’ cannot coexist”: “‘Gay pride’ necessitates anti-Christian hate. It must. ‘Gay marriage’ and other ‘sexual orientation’-based laws do violence to freedom and truth. They are the hammer with which the postmodern left intends to bludgeon bloody religious liberty and the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic.” Liberals Read more [...] Continue reading →

Secularist Lies About Religion and the Constitution

state-seals-emblems Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and People for the American Way hate God and America as it was founded. These “progressive” outfits – along with like-minded politicos, judges, Hollywood elitists and left-wing media-types – hate that this great nation was expressly founded upon the bedrock precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition. And so, in response, they lash out. They endeavor first to raze our God-blessed America, and then raise, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Alternative to Boy Scouts Launched

Joey Kalich, Steven Gime, Jonathon Grime Recently, millions of Americans were shocked and saddened when the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) disgracefully bowed to left-wing political pressure and became something it had never before been: a hyper-politicized, aberrantly sexualized petri dish for social and sexual experimentation. Created in 1910 to “prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes,” the BSA, on May 23, 2013, inexplicably voted to welcome into its ranks “open and avowed” homosexuality (boy-on-boy Read more [...] Continue reading →

Will 'Hail Satan' Pro-Abortion Crowd Kill the Baby-Killing Business?

hailSatan In the war between life and death, all eyes are on Texas as the Lone Star State legislature is poised to pass a sweeping late-term abortion ban. Gov. Rick Perry has pledged to sign the bill into law. The lines have been clearly drawn surrounding this progress toward equality and civil rights for pre-born Americans. Not surprisingly, as the pro-abortion side loses legislative battle after legislative battle, its “true colors” are coming into focus. Those colors are darker than many might have Read more [...] Continue reading →

Religious Liberty is the Next Shoe to Drop

dropping shoes While poorly decided U.S. Supreme Court cases are a dime a dozen, prior to last Wednesday, two stood out among the most wretched and constitutionally groundless in American History. First was the 1857 Dred Scott decision. Among other things, it robbed African-Americans of both their U.S. citizenship and their dignity. Next came the 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade. It has robbed over 55 million U.S. citizens of their very lives. For the first time in American history, the high court imagined a phantom Read more [...] Continue reading →

Supreme Court Does Not Have Authority to Redefine Marriage

NO_Supreme Court The U.S. Supreme Court is expected any day to release opinions on two landmark cases (Hollingsworth v. Perry and U.S. v. Windsor) that, should the court overstep its authority, threaten great violence to the age-old institution of marriage – society’s fundamental cornerstone. Also at stake is the high court’s already fragile legitimacy. Lest there be any doubt as to where the Bible-believing Christian community stands, scores of Christian leaders and clergy – Catholic, Orthodox and Read more [...] Continue reading →

IRS Corruption Easy to Fix if GOP Has Guts

Seated Justice Sir John Dalberg-Acton famously observed, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” and that includes the IRS. No federal agency enjoys more power than the “absolute power” wielded by the Internal Revenue Service. It’s little wonder, then, that under this power-drunk Obama regime, the IRS has become “corrupted absolutely.” It’s become the hammer to this president’s favorite nail: political dissent. The bureaucratic cat’s out of the bag and the evidence Read more [...] Continue reading →

R.I.P. Boy Scouts of America

Boy Scouts_RIP “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” (Mark 8:36) It’s a sad day for both Scouting and for freedom. Indeed, it’s a sad day for America. The century-old Boy Scouts of America (BSA)—created in 1910 to “prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes”—has betrayed its own constituency, mission, oath and law. Last Thursday, approximately 1,400 adult BSA delegates from around the country gathered in Texas and decided, Read more [...] Continue reading →
