Multiculturalism: Good or Bad for America?

How is this multiculturalism working out for our culture? In 2008, during Obama’s first national campaign, Barack Obama is on record saying that America is not a Christian Nation. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least not just,” Obama said. “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation and a Buddhist nation and a Hindu nation and a nation of non-believers.” He then continues by saying, “I think it’s time we joined a debate about how to reconcile Read more […]

Why Obamacare Is Good For America

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this [Obamacare].” In that quote lies the essence of why Obamacare is ultimately a great thing for this country.

In fact, like everything else in this world, the answer that is given to this question ultimately depends on the answer given to another question: Was man created in the image of God, or is he merely the result of time and random happenstance? A wrong answer to this second Read more […]
