Happy Thanksgiving, America! Here is Your History

washington praying We are so grateful at IOTC for the wonderful, providential year it has been. In light of this amazing holiday, I would like to give thanks for the opportunity to share the American View with others across this great country.

Another "Islamic Extremist" Who Didn't Practice Islam

islamic-veil I wrote about how one of the Paris terrorists was a nonobservant Muslim and a stoner. A commenter noted that another of the attackers had a similar story. I searched around and found this story at the Daily Mail again: "Extraordinary selfie of terror mastermind's cousin shows girl blown up in Saint-Denis siege who never read the Koran, liked to drink and smoke and had a reputation for having lots of boyfriends." The woman killed in the Saint-Denis siege was a party animal with a string of boyfriends Read more [...] Continue reading →

ABC's 'Scandal' Shows Abortion as Sacred Experience

scandalPromo Modern liberalism has been compared by some people to a religion, and abortion has been said to be its sacrament. ABC seems to have unwittingly demonstrated that point with an episode of its show "Scandal" in which the main character, Olivia Pope, played by actress Kerry Washington, has an abortion. The scene is one of the most horrifying I've ever seen on television, and I'm a "Walking Dead" fan. In the interest of full disclosure, I've never watched a full episode of "Scandal," and after Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Most Important Human Government

gutenberg bible As we approach the Thanksgiving to Christmas season I am reminded of that same time of the year in 1992. My Father, Gordon Whitney, was battling brain cancer. It had been two years since diagnosis. There was surgery and treatment that at first seemed successful, but then the cancer returned we were told it was in operable. We knew we had little time left with dad. The last I saw him, he was trying to do whatever he could to leave the hospital and go home. We visited on Thanksgiving and then Read more [...] Continue reading →

No ISIS Genocide of Christians according to the State Department

isis crucifixion Nina Shea, the director of Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, writes in the National Review: A report by a renowned journalist states that Christians are to be excluded from an impending official United States government declaration of ISIS genocide. If true, it would reflect a familiar pattern within the administration of a politically correct bias that views Christians — even non-Western congregations such as those in Iraq and Syria — never as victims but always as Inquisition-style Read more [...] Continue reading →

Capital Punishment by God’s Standard

deathpenalty The law enforcement community has been congratulating itself on the lowing of violent crime statistics. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports, for example, records the murders in 1994 as 23,326 as contrast with 2013 (the latest report available) as 14,196.[1] That was until Ferguson and then Baltimore where we have seen a significant uptick.  The FBI director “During his speech at the annual convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police… said the surge in criticism and protests Read more [...] Continue reading →

Michele Bachmann Should Stop Embarrassing Jesus

Nicolas Cage Left Behind Contrary to what Michele Bachmann believes, Jesus has a lot to do before the Final Judgment. I think it is great that Michele Bachmann encourages everyone to entrust themselves to Jesus, Jew and Gentile alike. Outside of Jesus there is no forgiveness or new life for anyone. But why must she attach that basic message to myths about the “End Times”? According to the Hill, The 2012 Republican presidential candidate made the comments in a radio interview last week with Tony Perkins, president Read more [...] Continue reading →

Marriage by God’s Standard

family If a group were to conspire together in the goal of destroying a country without firing a shot, how would they pull that off? The most effective way to destroy a land is to collapse it at its foundations, and the most fundamental building block of any civilization is the family. As the family goes, so goes everything else. So the most effective pathway is to declare war against marriage and the family in order to completely destroy a society. The strategy to destroy the American family began Read more [...] Continue reading →

Joe Kennedy, Satanists, and the Misuse of the Establishment Clause

religious-freedomV2 The story about Bremerton Washington assistant football coach Joe Kennedy and his postgame prayers has been well publicized.  We have all seen it somewhere.  Here's a guy who doesn't make a big deal about praying. He goes out to the field after the game, prays a very inclusive and "love your fellow man" kind of prayer, and then goes home. According to, Kennedy has been praying before and after the games since 2008, and it only recently became a problem with the school district. Read more [...] Continue reading →
