The Only Surefire Way to End Poverty

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 - by Chris Queen

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my response to Bernie Sanders’ speech at Liberty University. I pointed out that the God of the Bible is not a socialist, in spite of Senator Sanders’ intimations to the contrary. Boy, did I touch a nerve! For about a week, I fought off Sanderites on social media, […]

Jesse Watters Goes to Dearborn, the Largest Arab Community in America

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

I spent my earliest years around Detroit, living in the suburbs of Inkster and Garden City. We weren’t far from Dearborn, which I remember as an affluent community for people with more means than our family. Today, Dearborn has a very different reputation. It’s the largest Arab-American community in the United States. In the video […]

Christianity & Transhumanism: Should We Evolve Ourselves?

Monday, October 5th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

In recent years, transhumanism has ascended from a novelty on the fringes of popular science to a serious topic demanding thoughtful attention. Samford University, a private Christian institution, recently hosted a conference on the topic. The Christian Post asks, “Can Transhumanism and Christianity Co-Exist?“: Transhumanism is the theory that science and technology can be used […]

Sukkot Is a Joyous Family Time

Friday, October 2nd, 2015 - by Arlene Becker Zarmi

If you love the outdoors, love to eat on a patio or love to camp, then you’ll understand why Sukkot (known in English as the Feast of Tabernacles), which began at sundown on September 27th, is one of the most delightful Jewish holidays. The Jewish people were commanded in Leviticus in the Old Testament to do […]

Death Drinks Tea at the White House

Friday, October 2nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Thank God my mother isn’t pro-abortion; otherwise I might not be here. “You’re almost 37,” the doctor told her, “are you sure you want to start all over again?” When that line of thinking comes from a woman who declares she never wants kids, it’s selfish. When it comes from a medical professional, it’s crass. […]

Is ‘Game of Thrones’ Really ‘Progressive’?

Saturday, September 26th, 2015 - by Tyler O'Neil

HBO’s hit show “Game of Thrones” cleaned up at the Emmy Awards last month, and actress Gwendoline Christie praised the show as “progressive.” Christie, who stars in unconventional female roles in each franchise, focused on the “progressive” view of women in “Star Wars” and “Game of Thrones,” contrasting it with the allegedly sexist characterization of women […]

Judge Napolitano’s Libertarian Catholicism

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Reason TV has an interview with Judge Andrew Napolitano previewing Pope Francis’ forthcoming visit to the United States. Napolitano claims status as both a libertarian and a traditional Catholic. Much of the interview focuses on Napolitano’s criticism of Pope Francis’ radical departures from Catholic tradition. These include the use of papal exhortation and similar channels […]

The Lessons Lost in the Aftermath of Ann Coulter’s F-Bomb

Monday, September 21st, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

For all of those folks outraged at Ann Coulter’s “f-ing Jews” Tweet during the last Republican debate, I have one simple question: Where were you in 2007 when Ann Coulter expressed the belief that Jews needed to be “perfected” into Christians? There are two cardinal sins goyim can commit: Using the phrase “f-ing Jews” and […]

Evangelical Leaders Rebuke Trump’s Immigration Stance

Thursday, September 17th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Evangelical Christians largely reject Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s hardline rhetoric on immigration. That’s the claim from two evangelical leaders in a recent op-ed at The Christian Post. Dan Darling serves as Vice President for Communications at the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. Matthew Soerens co-authored the book Welcoming the […]

Note to Bernie Sanders: The God of the Bible Is NOT a Socialist

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015 - by Chris Queen

A Socialist goes to a conservative Christian college to make a speech. Sounds like the setup for a joke, doesn’t it? But in the 2016 presidential campaign, the most free-wheeling, anything-goes stump season of any in recent memory, we shouldn’t be the least bit surprised that it actually happened. Bernie Sanders, the Independent senator from […]

Christians Were Never a Moral Majority

Monday, September 14th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

As one reads the Gospel according to Matthew, and encounter’s Christ’s warning in chapter 7 to avoid the wide gate leading to destruction, it becomes clear that genuine believers have always been a minority. Yet, in the political discourse, a perpetual effort continues among culture warriors to portray believers as a “silent” or “moral majority.” […]

Christian Blogger: Kim Davis Hasn’t Experienced True Persecution

Thursday, September 10th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Here’s a confession. I’m not sure what to think about Kim Davis. I know. How can someone not know what to think about Kim Davis, right? You’re supposed to have an opinion ready to go for a case like this, especially one that’s been in the news for as long as Davis’ defiance has. But […]

George Takei Responds to the Release of Kim Davis

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Kim Davis was sent to jail, ostensibly for violating the rule of law. This while overt lawbreakers from groups like Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood, and — ahem — the State Department go unscathed. Actor and gay activist George Takei took to his Facebook page to offer comment on Davis’ release: Well this is a […]

John Campea labors as the senior producer of Collider Video and headlines the daily webcast Collider Movie Talk.

Is Kim Davis a Modern Day Rosa Parks?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Christian Post author Wallace Henley draws a provocative comparison between Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and civil rights icon Rosa Parks. Davis has been the subject of scrutiny, and more recently arrest, after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Henley observes: On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks had three choices. First, she could […]

Why the Hell Would Anyone Want to Read the Bible?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

The day I came across this Tweet referencing this Gallup poll titled “Majority Say Moral Values Getting Worse“: The age of Obama has led to a real sea change in moral attitudes in a variety of areas. — Avi Woolf (@AviWoolf) September 7, 2015 I also came across this story picked up by IMRA titled […]

Goddess Worship: Choir Replaces Jesus with Hillary’s Name in Hymn

Saturday, September 5th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

“Woke up this morning with my heart stayed on Jesus Hillary…” This is truly one of the creepiest things I’ve seen in a while: A women’s choir called “Voices of the Heart” that brands itself as a “women’s alternative chorus” replaced the name of Jesus in a traditional hymn called “Woke Up This Morning With […]

The Christian film War Room didn’t make anyone’s list last week, yet came in number two once the cash was counted. Collider Video senior […]

The Fundamental Reason Why Anna Should Dump Josh Duggar

Monday, August 24th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

This past weekend, the Duggars’ pastor, Ronnie Floyd, preached a sermon about Josh. Go figure. In it the pastor, who previously defended the eldest Duggar’s molestation of his sisters with the statement, “things like [the scandal] have happened before and will happen again,” explained that Josh’s infidelities via the Ashley Madison website were the result […]

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

The Satanic Temple of Detroit staged a pair of bizarre, God-mocking rituals outside Planned Parenthood clinics in Detroit and Ferndale, Michigan, on Saturday in support of abortion on demand. The group was there to “interrupt” the anti-Planned Parenthood protests in those two cities, which were part of a movement of hundreds of organized protests across […]

Militant Atheists Are Going After College Football Coaches

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 - by Chris Queen

They’re at it again. Those super-tolerant folks at the Freedom From Religion Foundation are going after Christian believers who share their faith with others. This time, their target is college football and the coaches who use their belief in Jesus Christ as a springboard to improving the lives of their players. The Freedom From Religion Foundation […]

Christianity and Social Networks: A Lesson from China

Thursday, August 20th, 2015 - by Tyler O'Neil

Friendships Trump Arguments When it Comes to Conversion That street preacher may not convert you — but your best friend will. Perhaps contrary to popular opinion, people rarely actually convert based on rhetoric or arguments. Social science hints that social networks, more than persuasive pastors or even good arguments, explain the phenomenon of choosing a […]

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Two Israeli app creators have claimed to develop the solution to the growing disillusionment with the false pretenses of social media: Angels Nearby. According to the Times of Israel: Among the tools Angels Nearby employs is a search engine that connects people based on the type of help needed (lifts, loans, housing or feeding newcomers […]

Jewish Artist Banned from European Music Fest

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Formerly Orthodox, still Jewish reggae artist Matisyahu was denied the ability to perform at the Rototom Sunsplash music festival in Spain because he refused to endorse Palestinian statehood. According to the Times of Israel: Festival organizers were driven by intense pressure from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, the reports said. Artists scheduled to […]
