If the "pro-choice" forces think they have an effective counter argument to justify the continued wholesale killing of unborn Americans, then they should pay their money and make their case. I suspect they know they don't have such arguments and so they descend to the tactic of seeking to silence the arguments of their opponents.

I applaud President Obama for his clear and unambiguous proclamation of freedom of religion. I was extremely disappointed President Obama did not take this opportunity in Cairo to applaud the United States military and its valiant and sacrificial efforts to liberate Muslims in Kuwait, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq from severe persecution and tyranny.

Robinson relates how being associated with Reagan, the man, made Robinson a better husband, father, son, citizen, and employee. I think reading it made me a better man, too.

Email is both a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing because we have much faster access to information as communication than ever before. Email is a quantum leap forward in technology from the fax machine. However, like all...

The only really true faith is the faith one voluntarily chooses for one’s own, not an inherited or imposed faith. If a person feels that he or she is trapped in “tradition,” he or she needs to seek a faith that fulfills their spiritual needs.

Romney helped himself with his Dec. 6 speech. More importantly, he helped the country and the cause of religious freedom even more.

It is proper that we give thanks to almighty God on every day of the year, but as we mark Thanksgiving in America this week, we can be particularly thankful there is not more religious, ethnic and geopolitical conflict across...

One is led to ask Mr. Hitchens some questions. Where are the great atheist-sponsored charitable and reform movements? Where are the atheist children homes and orphanages? Where are the atheist leaders who are taking vows of poverty and giving themselves in sacrificial service to others?

A true giant of the faith has gone on to his heavenly reward. Our grief at our loss of his witness, energy and giftedness for the kingdom is mitigated by the fact that he is now with his Savior for...

In response the last post of the Feb. 28 debate with Richard Land and Randall Balmer that can be found at http://newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/evangelicalism.html, C’mon Randall. You’re a better historian than that. You continue to perpetuate this inside-the-beltway urban myth that the...

Yes, I pray. To me, prayer is talking to God, my heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ—His Son, my Savior—in the power of the Holy Spirit. I begin each day by meditating on and praying the Lord’s Prayer:...

For Evangelical Christians, "Christian nation” implies one where the vast majority of people are “converted” individuals who profess Christ as their personal Savior--a situation that has never been true in the United States

In American history, Thanksgiving has been a “religious holiday” at least in the sense that most people have understood themselves to be thanking God for his blessings. This was true with Jamestown’s “Thanksgiving service” (Spring 1610) when the supply ships...
