Imagine in a thousand years someone doing IVF with a long-frozen embryo just to see what a 21st century – or, in this case, 20th century – human being was like.
It's been said by some that "gay is the new black." In the same way that African Americans were once dehumanized, marginalized, and denied basic civil rights based on something they cannot control, i.e. the color of their skin, so today homosexuals claim that they are disenfranchised based on something equally outside their control – their sexual orientation.
"There are no atheists in foxholes."
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last month or so, chances are you've heard the latest revelations regarding the NSA's unlawful invasion of American citizens' privacy.
Wendy Davis excels at keeping herself in the news...Now she's contemplating a run at the Governor's house.
A god of our creation is no god at all. He is simply a customized construct designed to make us feel better about ourselves.
Our culture has largely abandoned the concepts of sin and shame. To publicly declare that one should be "ashamed" of any form of sexual activity has become the greatest sin of all.

The controversy surrounding the Zimmerman trial and the outrage at the verdict shows how courts of law differ from the court of public opinion.
The ACLU is correct when they say that undermining the rights of one vulnerable group undermines the rights of us all. Would that they actually believed it.
Kennedy, the Court's Moralizer-in-Chief, impugns the motives of the lawmakers who passed DOMA and accuses them of being motivated by malice and hate.

For years, the LGBT movement has invoked the twin spectres of equality and human rights in their war against traditional marriage. We must remember, however, that having a mother and a father is a basic human right, one in accordance with Nature and Nature's God. To infringe upon this for selfish gain or gratification is an affront to natural law and to the Constitution.
America needs men, America's women need husbands, and their children need fathers. We ignore these truths at our peril.
America's obsession with political correctness is undermining our security and our Constitution. So argues newly-initiated American citizen Ayaan Hirsi Ali in an article suggesting that the United States do more to screen out "political Islamists" from its pool of aspiring citizens.

They say there are only two sure things in life: death and taxes. Try as we might, it's virtually impossible to escape the clutches of the Grim Reaper or the Tax Man. Both will get you eventually.
Regardless of where your political sympathies lie, it's undeniable that there is an unhealthy and unholy alliance between well-heeled special interests and politicians and policymakers.
