Looks Like Trump Has Found Ben Carson’s New Job: Selling Trump as a Christian
Donald had to fire Dr. Carson from his post as Vice President picker, but only because he was terrible at it and also Trump has no respect for him. But they’re stuck together, and it looks like Trump has found a new job for the former candidate: Christianity. If you’re a Christian, you’ve probably noticed that Donald Trump is terrible at pretending to be a | Read More »
Fellow Christians, Virtue Signaling About Syrian Refugees Won’t Score You Points With Jesus
Immediate willingness to give these refugees whatever they need, no questions asked, is a foolish move on any Christian’s part.

Happy Easter: Take Time To Reflect, But Also To Resolve
Today is Easter Sunday, and in light of the holiday millions of Americans will be celebrating, reflecting, renewing their faith, and thinking about their place in their church and the world. Easter is a time for all of those things. For Christians it is the celebration of the Risen Lord; his death and resurrection the core and guiding component of the faith. Death to pay | Read More »
Valentine: A Saint for Today’s Challenges in America
Valentine of Rome was a Christian priest in the 200s. His holiday, February 14, at some point became credited with “courtly love” and has morphed into a holiday today associated with dating both in and out of marriage. I think liberty-minded Americans can look at his traditional story, and use Valentine’s Day to learn something about the way our society is going today.
Faith is About More Than a Little Wine and a Little Cracker
When Donald Trump spoke at Liberty University earlier this week, it was to help bolster his bonafides as a Christian to the evangelical community. A moment of pandering from a guy that prides himself on brutal honesty. I say it was pandering, not because I find any fault in telling potential voters of your Christian faith or trying to convince folks that your faith is | Read More »
The War On Christians the Media Will Not Cover
While Islamophobia is the obsession of the western media, the data tells a different story. It is Christians under attack in the Muslim world that is the real issue.

No Christianity Isn’t Dying But It Is Under Attack
So The Daily Beast uses a homosexual activist who claims to be a Jewish rabbi but also teaches Buddhism to analyze why Christianity is dying. I mean what could possibly go wrong? In The Religious Right Is Right to Be Scared: Christianity Is Dying in America, C-list academic, Dr. Jay Michaelson, seeks to prove that claims that an attack on Christianity is underway are not | Read More »
Washington Post Gets Its Leg Tingling Over Obama’s Christian Faith
It really makes you want to gag. Earlier in the week, the Washington Post, the same paper that published a cartoon representing ‘s two young daughters as organ-grinder monkeys, wrote a lengthy, fawning, fellating story titled: The quiet impact of Obama’s Christian faith. Long story short — you’d be excused for not reading the piece — is that Obama failed because Americans just aren’t good | Read More »
German Churches Struggle With the Concept Of Christianity
v Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. This is the Great Commission. It is the foundation of Christianity. As Christians it | Read More »
The Fear of Criticizing Islam
It’s not news that Christianity is the most targeted religion of the modern era. It’s not news that Islam is so readily defended by the same people who attack Christianity’s core beliefs – many of which are also held by Islam. What is slowly making its way into the news is the admission that it’s because people aren’t scared of Christians. An atheist professor said Tuesday that it’s | Read More »
Now We Know Why the President Still Pretends to Be a Christian
Well, we have the answer now for why Barack Obama continues to play at being a Christian, though dripping with contempt for the church in his actions and policies. Pew Research Center asked people to rate religions. Turns out that black protestants take a very dim view of atheists. In fact, only 30% of black protestants have favorable views of atheists. The President has needed | Read More »
The collapse of Christianity in the Middle East
I am of a mixed mind on articles like this, Why Christianity Is Surging in the Heart of Islam. On the one hand you have an author who is justly proud of what he has been a part of. On the other you see a mistaken and pollyannish portrayal of the true situation. Today the Pew Research Center numbers Christians in the Arabian Peninsula at | Read More »
Have We Not More Faith Than This?
“We cannot compartmentalize our faith. We cannot say I’m a Christian, but this is separate. We cannot tribalize Christianity” One of my favorite emails after the Trump situation at the RedState Gathering was this piece of hate mail, which I present to you in its entirety from email address to email signature line, lightly edited. From: heavenbound****@****.com Subject: What event? Date: August 8, 2015 at | Read More »
A Lesson for Us from the Beheading of St. John the Baptist
For Orthodox on the New Calendar (meaning not on the Julian/”Old” Calendar)* and Catholics, yesterday marked the official commemoration of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist, also known as the Forerunner of Christ. As we face continued assaults on our religious freedom, I believe there is at least one important lesson we can learn from the story of his beheading. Here’s how the Gospel | Read More »
No, Christianity is Not Actually in Decline
The New York Times has a breathless report on the decline of Christianity in America. Much of the lefty twitterverse is celebrating the decline. The Christian share of adults in the United States has declined sharply since 2007, affecting nearly all major Christian traditions and denominations, and crossing age, race and region, according to an extensive survey by the Pew Research Center. Seventy-one percent of | Read More »
