Churches into mosques, American style
At least two Protestant churches have recently opened their facilities to Muslim groups whose own buildings are either too small or under construction. From Fox News: Heartsong Church in Cordova, Tenn., let members of the Memphis Islamic Center hold Ramadan prayers there last September. And Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Va., allows the Islamic Circle of North America to hold regular Friday prayers in | Read More »
Bye, bye, Miss American Pie — and Lady Liberty, too?
America, behold thy future… unless we wake up! Pretty sick joke, huh? Alas, it’s no joke. As the good folks at Weasel Zippers inform us, a group called Shariah 4 America is dead serious about plans to drape our beloved emblem of liberty in a burqa, and eventually turn the statue into a minaret. Here’s their blueprint: The UK-based Shariah 4 America group (I’m linking | Read More »
“The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb”
Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had an abortion years ago, and regretted it. Now she’s a leader in the “Silent No More” movement. And although she is an evangelical Protestant, she is one of the top staffers at Fr. Frank Pavone’s Priests for Life organization. Clearly, Alveda King is a woman who thinks for herself, and frustrates those | Read More »
We’ve become totally dependent on China for the “rare earth elements” that make modern life possible
Never underestimate the capacity of the Left to shoot itself in the foot — and injure the rest of us in the process. The New American reports: Most of their pet “alternative energy” projects — solar panels, hybrid and electric car batteries, wind turbine magnets, compact fluorescent light bulbs, etc. — are dependent upon “rare earth elements” that have been made all but unobtainable here | Read More »
Yes We Can (confront these people)!
Seeing Allen West confront that CAIR guy with facts the other night reinforced for me how amazingly powerful the simple truth is. The Left is so rooted in a false ideology, and so accustomed to deceiving people in order to get their way, that they instinctively recoil from truth — including from plain, unadorned facts. It’s like a crucifix to a vampire. Like water on | Read More »
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, RIP
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, RIP, was co-founder of NARAL and director of what was at one time the largest abortion clinic in the world. Science — especially ultrasound imaging — convinced him of the humanity of the unborn baby, and he spent the rest of his life working tirelessly to end abortion and build a Culture of Life.

It’s a great day to be a Muslim Brother!
Friday was indeed a great day to be a Muslim Brother. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and the most influential Muslim scholar in the world — looked to by most of the world’s Sunni Muslims for guidance about their faith — has made a triumphal return to Egypt. On Friday, Qaradawi spoke to hundreds of thousands (estimates go as high as a | Read More »
The Heartbeat Bill: THIS may be the case that changes the culture (and overturns Roe v. Wade)
Several pro-life bills have been introduced in the Ohio legislature, but the one that I especially hope inspires identical bills in each of the other 49 states is the one they call the “Heartbeat Bill.” More than any other mere piece of legislation, this is the bill that could change millions of hearts and minds on the abortion issue. And more than any other, this | Read More »
In Egypt, Christians fear the same fate as Iraqi and Lebanese Christians — or worse
Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians have been split for nearly 1,000 years — but in Egypt, tragically, they are united in suffering — now so more than ever. Via Catholic Online, the Catholic News Agency reports [boldface mine, throughout]: As the U.S. urges Mubarak to step down, Egyptian Christians worry that radical Islamic ideology may fill a void left by his absence.

What?! Allen West TOO SOFT on Islam?!
Two days ago, on my own blog, I posted a defense of Allen West against some “friendly fire” from the wonderful conservative columnist Diana West (no relation), who in turn was disappointed with Allen West’s response to some criticism he’d gotten from a group of liberal religious leaders — you know, the type who probably sport “Coexist” bumper stickers on their cars. As you may | Read More »
