Debunking misconceptions about faith

Date: 03/18/2016

Excerpts from my new book, "from science & religion to God," Opponents who attack faith should be careful not to confuse spiritual faith with blind faith. Faith is necessary in science, medicine, and religion. Consider the researcher or scientist who is trying to find a cure for cancer; they obviously have faith that a cure exists; otherwise they would not even try. Metaphysical ...

TRAP stands for Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. "Trapped" is a powerful new documentary that focuses on efforts to cut off women's access to abortion by imposing requirements and restrictions on clinics that have no relationship to health or safety. It could not be more timely, released the same week that the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade was argued in the Supreme Court, ...

Date: 03/04/2016

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture. The power of exposed scars and healing faith.

A Multiple Choice Test for Conservatives

Date: 02/25/2016

Donald Trump is not now, nor has he ever been, any sort of conservative in the traditional or classical sense of that term. This being said, those self-declared “conservatives” in the media who have been tirelessly blasting Trump on this score are motivated by, not the love of truth but, rather, political partisanship. To hear them go on incessantly about Trump’s past outspokenness for position ...

The Reality and Cost of Premarital Sex

Date: 02/16/2016

Tim and Kirsten eagerly engaged in our premarital counseling sessions. As we waded through the battery of premarital inventories and family background, sex was next on our list. This couple, like many I have counseled, was sexually active prior to meeting each other. Although committed to abstinence this time around, past sexual activity has taken a toll on their relationship contrary to what ...

10 Righteous

Date: 02/15/2016

Grown men at podiums interrupting each other, calling  each other ...

Reasons For Trump

Date: 02/12/2016

In a recent essay, I submitted seven reasons to account for the reluctance of a conservative or libertarian to vote for Donald Trump. Yet these arguments only tell one side of this story. There are also reasons for why such a voter could gravitate to Trump. First, unlike every other candidate—including the “conservative” candidate, Ted Cruz, as well as the two Democrat presidential aspirants—T ...
