    THE population of nonreligious Americans -- including atheists, agnostics and those who call themselves "nothing in particular" -- stands at an all-time high this election year. Americans who say religion is not important in their lives and who do not belong to a religious group, according to Pew Research Center, have risen in numbers from an estimated 21 million in 2008 to more than 36 million now. Despite the extraordinary swiftness and magnitude of this shift, our political campaigns are still conducted as if all potential voters were among the faithful. The presumption is that candidates have everything to gain...

    Rand Paul is out, so what does this mean for the realistic future of 2016? It means what I've been saying for a while, Senator Ted Cruz will take his campaign all the way. There is now pretending that Ted Cruz is a libertarian, he is as conservative as they come, in the traditional sense. The difference between Cruz and Paul though is this; Cruz never pretended to be something he wasn't, he has much adoration for libertarians, and has stated time and time again that when certain challenges come about, there is a need for a coalition. Senator Rand...

    Although I’ve been a content atheist for a decade, somehow God has found a way to stick around in my mind. Not the God of the Bible who created heaven and Earth — the God that lingers with me is harder to explain. The idea of God pesters me and makes me think that maybe I’m not as devoted to my beliefs as I’d like to think I am and would like to be. Maybe I’m still subconsciously afraid of hell and want to go to heaven when I die. It’s confusing and frustrating to feel the presence of something...

    One of the key metrics on the strength of a campaign is how well their fundraising, and allocation of resources are going. In that measure Ted Cruz's campaign is on fire. According to FEC reports, for the most recent filing period, Ted Cruz had more cash on hand than the Republican National Committee. For the period ending on December 31, 2015 Cruz reported having $18,734,794.46 cash on hand. For the same end date the Republican National Committee had $18,723,782 on hand. Cruz had about $11,000 more in his war chest than the RNC. It shows a particular strength for his...

They crowed that Cruz would meet his match in secular New Hampshire and quickly fade when Cruz meets "real American voters". Within one hour, the same station reported that New Hampshire's biggest problem was overdosing on drugs like heroin. They paraded several poor souls in front of their camera telling their testimony of how drugs and...

    "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 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...

    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...

    A new video has just been released in which Pope Francis very clearly expresses his belief that all of the major religions are different paths to the same God. He says that while people from various global faiths may be “seeking God or meeting God in different ways” that it is important to keep in mind that “we are all children of God”. This is the most recent example that shows that the Pope has completely abandoned any notion that a relationship with God is available only through Jesus Christ. As he has done throughout his papacy, he continues to...

    In his weekly Angelus message Sunday, Pope Francis continued his reflections on the meaning of Christmas, reminding his hearers that on coming into the world Jesus was rejected, and that we too must make a choice whether or not to accept him. Speaking on the day's Gospel before a crowd in Saint Peter's Square, the Pope underscored the dramatic contrast between God's gift of love in the Incarnation, and man's failure to receive Him. "The gift of God's love is matched by the non-acceptance of men," Francis said. "The Word is the light, but men loved darkness; the Word came...

    Every year as we celebrate the birth of Christ, one time-honored tradition is that of sitting in the warmth of our homes and enjoying classic Hollywood films with friends and family, if not alone, as we savor the days of Christmas. These cinematic treasures help us appreciate the momentous reality of Christ becoming man because they exemplify, in many respects, the goodness and virtue he embodied, and which a Christian—"a bearer of Christ"—is called to live. Often this happens through characters such as George Bailey and Ebenezer Scrooge, in, respectively, It's a Wonderful Life (1945) and A Christmas Carol, produced...

    It is true that the three primary monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all believe in an eternal, uncreated Creator God to whom all human beings must one day give account. But it is self-evident that Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God. First, God is the heavenly Father of Christians, but Allah is not the Father of Muslims. This is one of the most fundamental revelations of the Bible, which is why Jesus taught His followers to pray the "Our Father" prayer on a daily basis (Matthew 6:9-13). The New Testament even goes as far as saying...

    Quite literally, the Islamic term "Allah" translates as "god," but Allah and the Christian God are not the same deity. Wheaton College suspended professor Larycia Hawkins for making the bold claims, but the action brought the discussions of "Chrislam" to the forefront of American religious dialogue. "To affirm this truth (of the true Christian God) is not to argue that non-Christians, our Muslim neighbors included, know nothing true about God or to deny that the three major monotheistic religions — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — share some major theological beliefs," writes Albert Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological...

While wearing a hijab may have been tolerated by the school, what she said about the relationship between Islam and Christianity, was not. She wrote: “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.” For the crime of saying, “we worship the same God” Hawkins was suspended from...

Bottom Line: Even if you’re not convinced that increased gun ownership reduces violent crime and gun homicides, you should be totally convinced of this indisputable fact: Gun violence has been...

On Friday the president met with Gabrielle Giffords, the former Arizona congresswoman severely wounded in a mass shooting in Tucson in 2011 in which six people were killed. Her husband, NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, also participated, as did senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett. The White House provided an update on the process, started after a shooting rampage...

    Having run out of excuses why mass shootings are becoming regular events, Leftists have exposed their worldview like a peacock fanning its tail feathers: in full lavish display.  To them, prayer is, and always has been, a useless exercise.  They see no hand of God in anything. Lord, forgive them.  They know not what they do. This new phenomenon has been dubbed "prayer shaming," as if somehow it's offensive that people of faith are praying for victims.   They call it "platitudes" instead of action.  They proclaim "God isn't fixing this." They think gun control is some magic medicine to...

    This little jem was posted in a forum and a friend pasted it to his facebook page, so I am sharing it here. The authors name is Amanda Hadaway. —————————————— 1. God uses problems to DIRECT you. Sometimes God must light a fire under you to get you moving. Problems often point us in a new direction and motivate us to change. Is God trying to get your attention? Sometimes it takes a painful situation to make us change our ways. Proverbs 20:30 2. God uses problems to INSPECT you. People are like tea bags . . . if you...

    Stop me if you've heard this one before."This is the most important election of our lifetimes!"Washington politicians have been selling us that snake oil for as long as we can remember. And yet year-after-year, election-after-election, the parties in power may change but the results stay the same — the Washington Cartel wins and the American people lose.Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.The debt limit rises regardless of who wins. Middle class wages are stagnated regardless of who wins. Amnesty is championed regardless of who wins. The sanctity of life and marriage are abandoned regardless of who wins....

    In an exclusive to Brietbart.com, Donald Trump has called for Americans to bear arms to increase security in the United States. From Brietbart.com: Carrying a weapon is not always feasible or appropriate. However, given the increased tensions that are the result of continued, escalating terrorism around the world, more legitimately armed individuals on the streets is a positive outcome. Each permit holder must make the decision to carry or not carry. I will carry more often than I have in the past, and I am sure other concealed permit holders will do the same. Do we have an obligation...
  • Ted Cruz In Iowa: Obama Can’t Have Either Our God Or Our Guns

    Speaking at the Family Leader's Presidential Family Forum in Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz had some harsh words for President Obama. The Republican presidential candidate believes that the president is tearing at the fabric of society by undermining the freedom of religion. And he's not willing to let that happen. "It is the first right protected in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. It is the foundation of everything else in America. If you can’t worship God, all other liberties are taken away." Although many people seem to believe that the freedom of speech...

    Unbeknownst to many in our culture, including even some Christians, the God of the Old Testament is the God of the New Testament. God, the Bible assures us, is unchanging. Our secular culture mischaracterizes Jesus as a hyper-tolerant, nondiscriminatory liberal who is indifferent to sin and passes judgment on no one. But Jesus is not a milquetoast pacifist. In his Sermon on the Mount, which many cite as evidence of his unique moral teachings, he set out nearly impossible standards of human conduct. He didn't say, "I don't care how you live." Rather, he said, "You therefore must be perfect,...
  • Paris, jihad and war: Can we get serious?

    Can we get serious?  Because our enemies are dead serious. I grieve for Paris, and for the families who lost loved ones.  I grieve for those who are frightened.  The two largest terror attacks against civilians in the West in this century both took place in cities boasting a Statue of Liberty.  I don’t think that was missed by the Islamic jihadists who perpetrated the slaughter in Paris. The plaque beneath the lady sitting in New York harbor reads: Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send...

    Donald Trump, speaking at a rally on Saturday in Beaumont, Texas, suggested that fewer people would have been killed had more civilians been armed. "When you look at Paris, toughest gun laws in the world, nobody had guns but the bad guys," he said. "Nobody had guns. And they were just shooting them one by one, and then they broke in and had a big shootout and ultimately killed the terrorists. And I will tell you what--you can say what you want, if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would have...

    In an upside-down world where an increasing number of world leaders are selling their populations out, the geese serve as one of nature’s best reminders that some things other than man-made were Creator-made to endure. Many times throughout the day, the geese are honking their way across the skies outside our windows. It’s as if they want all humans to know that they are on their way south. Their distinctive honking is pure enthusiasm. It takes only a little imagination to think their honking is like calling out to other geese in their signature V-formations, “Only 100 miles to go!”...

    As an avowed agnostic — well, so far… growing older, I’d get on my knees before anyone who could convince me of an afterlife — I should be extremely skeptical of Ben Carson. I mean the man’s a Creationist, of all things, who claims God helped him ace his chemistry final his first semester at Yale. (Where was God when I was taking my boolean algebra final at Dartmouth? Nowhere to be found!)Nevertheless, I have been anything but skeptical of Carson almost since the outset of this campaign when I discovered that the doctor — even when he seemed...
