    Hillary Clinton laughed as the person introducing her omitted under God from the pledge of allegiance. Wednesday, during a campaign rally at Camden County College in New Jersey, the woman said, Only Hillary can bring us together as one nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. After the woman said one nation, she can be heard beginning to say under, but then caught herself. The crowd roared in approval.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    When it comes to the fundamental laws of nature, we can break everything down into four forces that are at the core of everything in the Universe: The strong nuclear force: the force responsible for holding atomic nuclei and individual protons and neutrons together. The electromagnetic force: the force that attracts and repels charged particles, binds atoms together into molecules and life, and causes electric current, among other things. The weak nuclear force: the force responsible for some types of radioactive decay and the transmutation of heavy, unstable fundamental particles into lighter ones. And gravity: the force that bind the...

    Most Americans say they believe in God. And around the world, religious Jews, Christians, and Muslims all say they believe in God, as do many people who do not identify with any formal religion. But this statement is actually meaningless. To cite but one example, the God in whose name Muslims cut innocent peoples throats and rape women cannot be the same God as the God of those who believe that God hates such actions. Who, then, argues that all those who say they believe in God believe in the same God? Two groups make this argument. The first consists...

There are, of course, bright liberal and leftist thinkers, but I can't think of one who approaches the depth and wisdom of the best conservative writers and thinkers. What liberal historian, for example, approaches the understanding of life and history that author Paul Johnson has exhibited in his many works of history? Who on the left matches psychiatrist/writer Theodore Dalrymple's insight into the underclass? What left-wing columnists understand human nature, the state of mankind, or contemporary America as do George Will, Charles Krauthammer and Thomas Sowell, or many of the leading columnists...

Months later, they show up for me to watch and I generally have little idea what they are about unless it was a major movie like Star Wars or Spotlight. When a movie called War Room arrived, my reaction was Oh boy, a good blow em up movie. That assumption was grossly wrong as it was a movie about a family healed by Christian faith, which started me focusing on faith and God. I grew up among Jews who...

    American engineers are the most innovative in the history of the world. They have built space probes that have been able to travel as far as the planet Jupiter, and closely study the planet and its moons. This has led American elites to believe that they can be just as innovative in the field of morality. A lot of people will refer to same sex marriage, and holding up Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Miley Cyrus as role models for American youth. The problem goes much deeper than that. It includes paying more money to people on welfare, than to...

Supposedly, men could do it much better without him.All this was done, mind you, with a certain amount of tact and propriety so as not to overly offend God or those who believed in him. It was decided that God would be given the title of the maker of a clock, where the clock was a great mechanical universe. As “clockmaker,” all God had to do was wind up...

    Fewer Americans say they believe in God or pray regularly yet more people believe in an afterlife nonetheless, a new study finds. It's a generational thing, with millennials the least likely generation to say they're religious or to take the Bible literally, the team at San Diego State University, Florida Atlantic University and Case Western Reserve University found. "In recent years, fewer Americans prayed, believed in God, took the Bible literally, attended religious services, identified as religious, affiliated with a religion, or had confidence in religious institutions," the team wrote in the journal Sage Open.

    According to Dr. Joel Mathews, the phrase "In God We Trust" was first printed on our coins in 1864 and on paper bills in 1957. It had been proposed that "Our Country, Our God, Our Trust" be used, but that was shortened to be able to stamp the motto onto coins. Kansas State University Polytechnic's March Civic Luncheon began with Kansas Weslyan University's Dr. Philip Meckley asking: o How can we look at comparative religious traditions? o How can we live with differences for the sake of our human community? Matthews, a K-State Polytechnic instructor, began the lecture by saying...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz kept attacking his rival Donald Trump after they faced off onstage at CNN's Republican presidential debate on Thursday night. In an extended interview on Fox News, Cruz went after the Republican frontrunner. "I think that what became very clear is that Donald Trump is not the right candidate to go head-to-head with Hillary Clinton in November," Cruz said. "That on policy issue after policy issue, his position is identical to Hillary." Cruz cast Trump's policies as in line with those of "liberal Democrats." Trump has previously called himself a Democrat before running for the Republican presidential...

    For almost a quarter of a century I have spent my days working with utopians. The utopian is motivated to create heaven on earth because he is convinced that there is no other option. Put simply, the utopian believes there can be no heaven in the sense that it is described in the Bible because there is no supernatural realm. This commitment to naturalism is a philosophical commitment. It isn't based on science. In fact, it flies in the face of science. To paraphrase Josh McDowell, we only have three options when it comes to the origin of the universe....

    WASHINGTON—Possibly the biggest tribute to late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, 79, during his funeral Mass Saturday, Feb. 19, may have come during the homily offered by his son, Fr. Paul Scalia, who preached about the blessings his father received during his life and the salvation that faith in Jesus Christ offers flawed people such as his dad. Every funeral is a reminder of the thin "veil" that is between this world and the next one, between this time and "eternity," and between the "opportunity for conversion" and the moment of judgment, Fr. Scalia told the attendees at the Basilica...

    "Morning is coming," said Ted Cruz as he took the stage in Iowa to declare victory in the 2016 Republican caucus.He wasn't referring to how long his victory speech went — even though it was so long that by the end no TV network was covering it. It was a deliberate callback to Republican hero Ronald Reagan, whose slogan in 1984, "Morning in America," has become a slogan of a conservative golden age. Cruz vastly overperformed expectations and outhustled Donald Trump to win 29 percent of Iowa voters. And while the length of his speech kind of distracted from its...

    ... The first thought that comes to mind is that Trump keeps coming back to this attack against Cruz for a couple of reasons. The first is that he cannot make attacks on Cruz's record of standing up for conservative principles the centerpiece of his strategy because that leaves him open to greater scrutiny of his own liberal record...

    The one term that's used overwhelmingly in scripture to describe Almighty God's relationship with us is "Father." He most certainly IS our Father in heaven. He created us and knit every human being together in their mother's womb. He loves us with the fierce protectiveness of a father and the tender compassion of a mother. He delights in our company, trust and obedience. So, what do good parents do when their beloved child rebels against the rules of the home designed to keep them safe, meant to train them to mature into caring, productive citizens? What do you do when...

    WASHINGTON -- The presidential candidates have been talking about God lately, which is understandable because most of them haven't a prayer of being elected. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was raised in the Jewish faith and rarely discusses his religious views, was compelled to talk about it this week as he campaigned in Iowa -- a state heavily populated by evangelical voters who will pick the winner of next week's nominating caucuses. The Vermont Democrat, who went to Hebrew school in his youth and was bar-mitzvahed, is drawing big crowds in the state, as he does everywhere he goes. But he's...

    <p>I pray FR survives this election. Our forum has never been so divided. But even more so, I pray our divided nation survives. If traitor Hillary or communist Sanders is elected, it will be difficult to continue as a free nation without invoking certain clauses in the Declaration. Our constitution is certainly being put to the test.</p>

    Most people think little about their appendix, and that's only natural, because the function of the appendix has been considered unknown - until now. New research supports that our appendixes might actually be useful after all, and doctors may soon be changing their tune about this neglected organ. The appendix, which looks like a slim tube measuring between two and four inches long, sits in our lower right abdomen. It was originally thought to be vestigial - a part of the body that evolution forgot. Popular belief was that this leftover organ was originally part of a fermenting chamber in...

    One of the United States' most influential evangelical leaders blasted Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. on Monday for hosting Donald Trump to give a campaign speech. Russell Moore, who heads the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, let fly a series of tweets after Falwell gave a glowing introduction to Trump, calling him "one of the greatest visionaries of our time" and saying Trump "lives a life of helping others ... as Jesus taught in the New Testament." Moore appeared incredulous at Falwell's language, which was more effusive than he had...
