Mona Charen | April 26, 2002

Where is the universal condemnation of Palestinian war crimes? Why have we heard no protests from the Christian world at the barbarous taking of priests as hostages at the Church of the Nativity?

Cal Thomas | April 26, 2002

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, who's spent a considerable number of years on television handicapping the sins of others and prophesying their destruction, owns a racehorse.

Larry Kudlow | April 26, 2002

Tired of the meandering U.S. stock market? How about Japan? Believe it or not, the Japanese market is coming alive after a 12-year drought.

Charles Krauthammer | April 26, 2002

How inconvenient, then, that the same French have just put on the presidential ballot Jean-Marie Le Pen, the modern incarnation of European fascism.

Ross Mackenzie | April 26, 2002

The Catholic Church's confab of cardinals had the pope calling the priestly molestation of the young a sin and a crime. That's true.

Michelle Malkin | April 25, 2002

Conservative Hollywood celebrities are an endangered species -- and they're moving one step closer to extinction. Sad to say, but rock-ribbed Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger has grown flabby and flown leftward.

Brent Bozell | April 25, 2002

We all heard how this past weekend, anti-global-capitalism partisans demonstrated, angrily, but mostly peacefully in Washington, not far from where World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings were being held.

Jonah Goldberg | April 25, 2002

Imagine if Secretary of State Colin Powell said the following the first Sunday after Sept. 11:

Debra J. Saunders | April 25, 2002

After all the French snootiness about America's "cowboy" president, George W. Bush...

Linda Chavez | April 25, 2002

As the cardinals of the American Catholic Church return from their meeting with Pope John Paul II this week, expect the drumbeat to increase for the Church to abandon its teaching on human sexuality.

Joel Mowbray | April 25, 2002

Although the discussions between the Cardinals and the Pope in Rome have understandably focused on expediting the process for punishing abusers, the Church must soon direct its attention to fighting those using the scandal as a Trojan horse to surreptitiously undermine traditional Catholic teaching on sexuality.

Robert Novak | April 25, 2002

George Will | April 25, 2002

Reports of tensions between George W. Bush and conservatives are appearing in media that are often uncomprehending of, unsympathetic to, and fond of finding conflicts among conservatives.

Walter E. Williams | April 24, 2002

Europe has been at peace for an unprecedented nearly six decades. Why? It surely is not because of peace treaties between enemy states, and it's surely not because of disarmament.

David Limbaugh | April 24, 2002

Some always look for root causes to justify inexcusable behavior in the world. But they search in vain, because a mask of moral relativism obscures their vision. The cause is evil, and it provides no excuses.

Cal Thomas | April 24, 2002

William F. Buckley | April 24, 2002

Here, in one of those nutshells, is a crystallization of what's going on in the Catholic controversy.

John McCaslin | April 24, 2002

Every time we write something nice about Bill Clinton, the telephone rings. Last week, we made the mistake of applauding his musical skills.

Jack Kemp | April 24, 2002

Nothing sums up the history of the Middle East conflict better than Aldous Huxley's observation that, "The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different."

William F. Buckley | April 22, 2002

Pedro Carmona of Venezuela has a nice point. He didn't participate in a coup, he says. All he did was agree to serve as interim president after being told that Hugo Chavez had resigned!

George Will | April 22, 2002

Developments involving two desolate places and one lush one--the fertile Midwest--demonstrate how Congress plays with energy policy.

Kathleen Parker | April 22, 2002

John Leo | April 22, 2002

-->"He kept bleeding" was a large front-page headline in the April 3 Washington Post.

Armstrong Williams | April 22, 2002
