    Joel Osteen or Fortune Cookie? May 12, 2010 The other day I ate some rather extraordinary Thai food for lunch and, on my way out, grabbed a fortune cookie. I cracked it open and read a silly little proverb meant to inspire, I suppose. I wish it had said Brisk uphill walk after all-you-can-eat Thai is a bad idea. Never mind. As I waddled my way home, regretting that last bowl of curry (so delicious), I thought This fortune sounds like something Joel Osteen would say. And then it struck methere is very little difference between Joel and those fortune...

    Last week, the Supreme Court declined to hear several Appeals Court cases on gay marriages, which resulted in bans on gay marriage being struck down in numerous states across the country. Following the Supreme Court's decision to punt on the issue of gay marriage, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd saw this as a sign that social conservatism was declining and obnoxiously asked "it is time for conservatives to surrender in the culture wars?" After playing a pre-packaged segment on the evolution of social conservatism in the United States, the NBC host did his best to portray social conservatives as...

    The gay marriage steamroller is in the news again, with another big win in the courts. Pro-family people across the country are wringing their hands in anguish. How is this happening? Well, its about time we started being honest with ourselves. In many ways, the biggest help to the homosexual cause has been the dishonesty, incompetence, and cowardliness of the pro-family movement itself in dealing with this issue. On Monday, Oct. 6, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it would not review any of the seven appeals from five states where federal judges had struck down the states bans on...

When the two Marines waiting at the base of steps offered him a smart salute, Obama, who seemed to avoid looking at them, vaguely pawed his forehead with the hand holding that cup and then walked on. Here, see it for yourself: People in the military and conservatives were outraged. Liberals have been outraged at the outrage. Here are a few of the comments I’ve culled from liberals on my “real...

    Before I get started with my question (and boy, do I need ideas!) I want to note that I'm a *secular* Conservative, and do not identify as a Christian. So any forthcoming ideas from y'all that are based strictly on Bible teachings, etc. are not going to be terribly useful to me. My problem: Our twin boys are 7 (pushing 8) and homeschooled. They probably know more about history than any other seven-year-olds in town, but I'll admit I've skipped over some areas of education so far. One of those "skipped over" areas is the concept of homosexuality. I wanted...

    As the Republic slowly twists in the wind of the worst American Administration since George III, it is possible that even Team Obama's key kabuki players recognize that their front man, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., (or II) has been in failure mode since the heady days of Admin I. But, what to do with an Admin II fool who now dangerously believes in the omnipotent legend created for him and thus believes himself free to act on his own, and perhaps even more dangerously, to ignore the basic responsibilities of the post, namely to show up? I am hoping that...

    For a long time before I became a reporter, I never paid attention to bylines the announcement of who wrote a given article. That all changed for me one day when I was sitting at Jimmy Ts Diner in Washington, D.C., reading a hate-filled fashion column that was nothing more than the projection of angry liberal political views. It was so awful that I wanted to know who wrote it. The author, Robin Givhan, of course went on to win a Pulitzer. Im part of a profession that rewards liberal political views above most all else. Along similar...

    ORIGINAL TITLE IN CHINESE: 关注性别失衡:艺术家创作女兵马俑(双语) When Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, anticipated his death more than 2,000 years ago, he wanted an army of warriors to guard his mausoleum forever and protect him in the afterlife。   So he ordered the creation of some 8,000 terra-cotta soldiers, along with hundreds of terra-cotta horses and chariots, to be buried with him in his tomb. Historians speculate the soldiers were modeled after eight individuals. When the statues were discovered by workers digging a well in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, in 1974, the world was stunned by the spectacular funerary art...
