There was a story last week that got my attention. Lech Walesa, former president of Poland and a great hero in my book (but not on this point), said that what we need today is a “secular Ten Commandments.”
Now that we’ve had just a few weeks of the mess that is Obamacare, it brings home how grossly unfair it is for the political class to impose it on the rest of us and not have to abide by it (for as long as it lasts). It may yet collapse on its own weight.
There’s virtually not a week that goes by without some sort of lawsuit or complaint against a reference to God or Jesus in the public arena.

Surely the 50th anniversary of the "I have a dream" speech of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (8/28/1963) is a major milestone in our history. But in our highly secular age, the Politically Correct Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been yanked from his biblical context---deeply rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t a flawed man. However, no one but Jesus is without sin.
Right now Christians are unfairly being made the scapegoat by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, since Morsi was ousted from power last month.
It's a good thing our current administration wasn't around in the 4th century when St. Basil of Caesarea invented what writer George Grant calls "the first non-ambulatory hospital" in history, i.e., a medical facility with beds.
