  • The Left, Not Trump, Is Destroying America

    Football used to the one of the few things that could unite all Americans. This week, every Tom, Dick, Harry and Ann Coulter most likely will be writing about the rapid demise of the NFL and how the coddled Black Lives Matter acolytes infecting the league have aggressively ratcheted up their hatred of America. Last season’s ridiculous antics started by the Human Muppet/former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (who, no doubt, will be “pity hired” by one of the cuckolded team owners any day now), have this season trickled down to even Pee Wee Football leagues. The “Hands Up,...
  • [Christian nation?] Christianity is in the Constitution

    Those who insist that America was not intended to be a “Christian nation” point to the obvious absence of specific directives regarding Christianity in the federal Constitution. The popular propaganda since the 1960s has been that “the irreligious Framers did not want the nation to retain any attachment to the Christian religion.” Such an assertion is a monstrous perversion of historical fact. The truth of the matter is that they were fearful of the potential interference by the federal government in its ability to place restrictions on the free exercise of the Christian religion. Consequently, they desired that the specifics...

    Eleven years ago, Illinois Senator Barack Obama delivered the keynote address at a conference sponsored by Sojourners, the self-styled “progressive” Christian magazine. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation,” said the future 44th president. America was also “a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of unbelievers.” That’s the distorted view of America’s religiosity Mr. Obama brought with him to the White House. And he was dead wrong. America is, indisputably, a Christian nation. And that was confirmed this past week by the Pew Research Center, which released...
  • Salon: GOP Must Dump Jesus or Risk Irrelevance in ‘Post-Christian America’

    Salon Magazine has accused the Republican Party of being out of touch with “post-Christian America,” warning the GOP that if it doesn’t renege on its alliance with Christianity, it will soon become irrelevant. Ted Cruz’s failure to get the GOP nomination, Matthew Sheffield proclaims in Salon, “is a perfect window into trends that will set the pace of American politics for decades to come: Americans are moving away from Christianity, including people most likely to vote Republican.” To back up his claims, Sheffield cites the 2014 Pew Research study finding that 23 percent of Americans say they’re “unaffiliated” with any...
  • Is the end of white Christian America a good thing?

    The Washington Examiner ^ | April 16, 2016 | Michael Barone
    "White Christian America is dying," proclaims the headline on a Monkey Cage blogpost by the perceptive political scientist John Sides. Like many headlines, it's an exaggeration of the thrust of the article that follows, which is an interview with Robert Jones, head of the Public Religion Research Institute, on his new book The End of White Christian America, based on PRRI and other research on religious beliefs and practices of Americans. Sides's questions and Jones's answers are pretty much neutral in tone, but many readers will detect a tone of triumphalism in the book's title and in the thrust of...

    When all else fails, abortion activists often resort to the old “pro-lifers are forcing their religion on us” argument to push their agenda. That is what a group of Indiana University student editors used to attack a new state law that protects the dignity of unborn babies by requiring that aborted babies’ bodies be buried or cremated. The new law will help stop the kind of sale of aborted babies’ body parts that Planned Parenthood facilities in other states have been caught arranging. Although Roe v. Wade prohibits states from completely banning abortions, pro-life advocates in Indiana believe the aborted...

    Russell Moore says the belief that the United States is a Christian nation in the respect of being a divinely ordained country is "theological liberalism." In a video posted to YouTube on Tuesday, the head of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention tackled the question of whether or not the U.S. is a Christian nation. "If what you mean by that is a nation in which most of the people profess to be Christians, then certainly the United States of America was and is a Christian nation," said Moore.

    Donald Trump was on fire this week, stating that he would kill families of terrorists, a statement that caused Wolf Blitzer to choke on his beard and was even more inflammatory than last week’s “stop all Muslims from coming into the country line.” Just as Reagan made statements that horrified the left about how he would destroy the Soviet Union, Trump horrifies the liberal media by stating how he would shut down immigration for Muslims and furthermore, would take out the families of terrorists. Trump is the voice of the times. He represents every frustrated feeling Americans have now on...

    Trump Celebrates Christmas at Rally Talking Putin Praise By JOSH HASKELL JOHN SANTUCCI Dec 19, 2015 Christmas appears to have come early for Presidential candidate Donald Trump as he basked in the praise received from Russian President Vladimir Putin while on the campaign trail in Iowa Saturday. "Russia's got plenty of problems. But I'll tell you what, if Putin likes me and he thinks I'm a good, smart person, that's a good thing. Not a bad thing," Trump said. Acknowledging that Trump's GOP rivals didn't exactly think an endorsement from Putin was something to gloat about, the billionaire businessman told...

    Each of the Republican presidential candidates brings something good to the race for the GOP nomination and some things not so good. In the fifth and final GOP debate of the year, the candidates on the main stage, and even a few on the "undercard," presented ideas and positions that many Republican voters would consider far better than those we have now under the president we have now. Donald Trump continued to channel Republican voter anger on several issues, including the feeling that the U.S. is no longer "great," a word Trump does not define, but which resonates with the...

    FEAR: Jihadis are targeting Christians in Sweden -- like they did in Iraq The terror group's logo was daubed on the wall of a restaurant in Gothenburg, Sweden. Chilling messages such as "convert or die" and "the caliphate is here" were also found covering the outside of Markus Samuelsson's bakery. "I felt a sudden chill down my spine. It's terribly painful, we feel threatened," Samuelsson said. The Arabic letter for "N" -- which has been used to identify Christians and drive them out of their homes by ISIS fighters -- was also painted on the restaurant. Gothenburg is a hotbed...

    he day after a horrific shooting spree by what appears to be a radicalized Muslim man and his partner in San Bernardino, California, Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged to a group of Muslim activists that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used "anti-Muslim rhetoric" that "edges toward violence." Speaking to the audience at the Muslim Advocate's 10th anniversary dinner Thursday, Lynch said her "greatest fear" is the "incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric" in America and vowed to prosecute any guilty of what she deemed violence-inspiring speech. "The fear that you have just mentioned is in fact my...

    Islam will replace Christianity in Europe just as Christianity replaced Paganism centuries ago, and it will conquer by womb rather than the sword to make Latvia an Islamic State, claim Muslim community leaders in the Baltic country. Speaking in an interview with Latvia's Morning Independent newspaper, the chairman and head spokesman of the Islamic Cultural Centre, better known as Riga Mosque, said while they both had three children with their wives each "we are working to have more" in an effort to colonise the country faster.

    Christians decided going to church was enough, rather than advocating Christian morals and values. Jews decided even God wasn’t necessary.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) May 12, 2015 If Ben Shapiro’s simply stated point isn’t enough to drive home the idea that the latest Pew survey on religious life in America reported absolutely nothing new, just check out one of the latest episodes of the Kardashians in which Kim Kardashian has to Google who baptized Jesus before concluding that she wanted to “find a guy named John” to baptize her daughter, North West. What’s worse, the “guy named John” concept, the...

    New Evangelization, where art thou? The Pew Research Center reports that the number of Americans who identify as Christian has fallen sharply, to the tune of nearly eight percentage points in only seven years.  The survey, carried out in 2014, was the second "Religious Landscape Study" Pew conducted since 2007. Based on the 35,000 people the institute interviewed, the American populace is 21% Catholic. It was 23.9% seven years ago.  While the percentage of Americans who identify as Christian dropped from 78.4% in 2007 to 70.6% in 2014, non-Christian religions are growing. Islam showed the greatest gains, growing half a percentage point...
