Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett Over Howls of Rage from RBG Worshippers

Written by Laurie Higgins

Why do leftists, particularly women, worship the notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG)? Why are even some Republicans waxing effusive about her?

Yes, it’s lovely that she had a deep friendship with her ideological foe Antonin Scalia, but is that really deserving of plaudits and fawning admiration. Have we come to a cultural place so degraded, so uncivil, so intolerant, so nasty and brutish that friendship between people of dissenting worldviews is oohed and aahed over like the discovery of beautiful bird long-assumed to be extinct?… Continue Reading

Don’t Put Your Light Under a Basket!

Written by Dr. Michael Brown

Whenever I hear Christian leaders talk about the inevitable collapse of the church of America (or elsewhere) I ask myself, “But hasn’t Jesus risen from the dead? Didn’t He ascend to the right hand of the Father? Hasn’t all authority in heaven and earth been given to Him?

Religion remains an integral part of most Americans’ lives, but Gallup’s ongoing research shows how this has changed over time. The following are five important findings about religion in the U.S.:

Islam Is Not a Civilization

Written by Paul Eidelberg

We need a politically incorrect and radically new multi-disciplinary and multinational understanding of Islam.

To speak of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as the “three Abrahamic faiths” or as the “three religions of the Book,” or, more significantly, as the “three monotheisms,” obscures rather than illuminates. These familiar tropes, says theologian George Weigel, ought to be retired.… Continue Reading
