As much as GOP politicians and their apologists in the media despise it, Donald Trump is, deservedly , the GOP presidential frontrunner at the moment. To Trump’s eternal credit, he has made it acceptable (or at least somewhat less unacceptable) to openly discuss the scourge that is American immigration policy. Still, intellectual honesty demands that we contend with Trump’s record, as opposed t ...
Like most of you, I was horrified to see the video of the Planned Parenthood women having wine and food while discussing abortive body parts for sale. The lack of a moral compass should outrage all of us, but yesterday, as I listened to Juan Williams on The Five say that this was "gorilla theatre" by the person who shot the video and simply an attempt to politicize abortion, I was also grieve ...
Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ latest encyclical, is quite provocative. Unfortunately, though, it provokes us to consider the possibility that its author has more in common with contemporary leftism than traditional Christianity. The Pope’s encyclical read as essentially nothing more or less than a protracted, theologized, reiteration of the same “progressive” drivel that’s been drooled upon us f ...
Leon Marlensky (an alias for a fellow academic who wishes to remain anonymous) elaborates more on his disgust over, as he sees it, the betrayal of progressivism as revealed via the coverage of the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner issue.

(Colossians 1:11) It's difficult to take a breath or two without being assailed by some great politically religious name, purporting to speak for God and the rest of us, who announces that America -- because of our extreme sta ...
Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture. The beauty of imperfection. Shari Rigby began her career as a successful model and is now a sort-after actress whose roles include parts in such quality faith-themed movies as 2013's Not Today (about human trafficking) and October Baby (about abortion survivors ). CNN named the latter film, a surprise hit, on ...
