As expected, no sooner had blood been spilled at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado than accusations of Christian terrorism began to fly across the internet, despite the fact that: 1) no motive had been announced; 2) there was no hint of a connection between the murderer and any pro-life organization; and 3) pro-life leaders immediately denounced the killings as soon as the news was released.
I understand the tremendous popularity of Donald Trump in America in 2015.
Many Christians are torn between a desire to help those in need and a desire to keep our nation secure. Perhaps these reflections will prove helpful as we seek to navigate a difficult and divisive issue.
My tweet simply said, We know that most Muslims today are not terrorists. We also know that most terrorists today are Muslims.
To say this with absolutely clarity, it is not Christian in any shape, size, or form to provoke hatred towards gays or lesbians or, worse still, to suggest that they should be mistreated or, God forbid, executed.
Although Ive known this for decades, a couple of Facebook posts this week reminded me of the fact that the world hates us because it first hates God.
For some time now Ive been saying that gay activists will overplay their hand and that the bullying will backfire. Ive also said that we can outlast the gay revolution and ultimately, by Gods grace, turn the moral tide in America.
I have never officially endorsed a presidential candidate before, but Im endorsing Ted Cruz for president for three simple reasons.
At a time when Christians in the Middle East are being tortured, beheaded, and crucified rather than denying Jesus, Christians in Europe I should say so-called Christians are renouncing the Great Commission and removing the cross (literally) to make peace with Muslims.
If weve learned anything here in America in the last few months, it is this: When your religious faith comes in conflict with your job, if you are a Muslim, your faith is protected and sacred; if you are a Christian, it is not.
Why would a Jordanian father proudly post a video interview with his tiny little daughter as she holds a knife in her hands and explains how she will use it to stab Jews? Why would a little Palestinian boy appear on national TV in Gaza and explain that he wants to be an engineer when he grows up so he can blow up the Jews?
One of the strongest arguments against consensual adult incest is that incestuous unions could result in children with genetic defects, but since that concern wouldnt apply to same-sex couples, an Irish political leader has argued that gay cousins should be allowed to marry.
Weve all seen the abbreviation of LGBTQ and sometimes I and P and more standing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or, questioning), intersex, and pansexual. But is it possible that the P could also stand for parrot?
We knew this was coming for some time now, and there are already throuples (meaning three men or three women in committed relationships) in America and other nations, but for the first time, one of these throuples has come up with an innovative way to be legally married or at least almost legally married.
There are numerous factors that contribute to Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israel, including the history of the region, the Islamic religion, and the difficulties faced by Palestinians because of what they view as the occupation.
Ive been saying that 2015 is the year of pushback, and this might be the most significant act of pushing back so far: A group of legal scholars, most of them university professors, have declared that the Supreme Courts redefinition of marriage this past June 26th is not the law of the land, and they are calling on all office holders, together with all presidential candidates, to join them in rejecting the Courts decision.
Did you know that in 1647, early American settlers passed the Old Satan Deluder Act to encourage childrens education so they could learn to read the Bible?
More than once in the last few years Ive asked myself the question, Has the whole world gone mad? Has everyone in our society lost the ability to think clearly?

When a white supremacist murdered black parishioners in Charleston, SC, there was national outrage leading to the banning of the Confederate Flag and a fresh discussion of race relations in America. But when Christians are targeted and murdered on a campus in Oregon, much of the nation yawns.
