  • The Second Amendment assumes a moral people: Unfortunately, our modern government no longer shares that assumption.

    When the Framers put the Bill of Rights into place, they did so assuming that Americans were a fundamentally moral people. John Adams stated that explicitly, saying, "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." One element of this assumption was that the people could be trusted with firearms. Now, though, those in charge of the government presumptively assess Americans as immoral and untrustworthy.Immediately after the Framers created the Union, they passed the ten constitutional amendments that we call the Bill of Rights. The Framers understood these...
  • Missing From the WEF’s Great Reset: A Moral Compass

    Globalization has afforded non-governmental organizations, the ultra wealthy, and Big Tech power and influence on a global scale once reserved for the world’s superpower states. The World Economic Forum, which describes itself as an international organization for public-private co-operation, has proposed a “Great Reset” initiative to rework global economics to address the challenges of the post-pandemic world. The WEF paints a picture of a 2030 in which America will lose its place as the preeminent superpower, a billion people will be displaced by climate change, carbon will be taxed globally, and “you will own nothing and be happy.” The WEF...

    In my meandering post from last night I theorized that the Left was using jim crow and the civil rights movement to initiate a process whereby the "unjust" laws of G-d would be superseded by the "just" secular laws of man. This is the root of the whole problem. Because there never was, is not now, and never will be an objective secular standard of morality/ethics/justice. Any system created by people is going to be arbitrary. Furthermore, the very purpose of morality/ethics/justice is submission to the Divine Will. Any system which by-passes this for mere utilitarian results is missing the...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Catholic Conscience and the COVID-19 Vaccine

    [Catholic Caucus] Catholic Conscience and the COVID-19 VaccineOn Thursday, Vatican News confirmed that both Pope Emeritus Benedict and Pope Francis have received the currently available COVID-19 vaccines, themselves providing an example, ostensibly, for the Church as a whole. In the world’s eyes, I suspect this spells the end of any claim a Catholic might otherwise make for religious exemption to required reception of the current vaccines. If abortion-tainted vaccines are mandated, either formally or by informal social incentives such as the widely-proposed possibility that the COVID-19 vaccine be a prerequisite for travel, conscientious Catholics could not say, “but my Church...

    Archbishop Viganò reacts to Pope Francis saying all must take the COVID vaccineConsiderations by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on the promotion of the vaccine by the Holy See.January 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A few days ago, an interview was broadcast on Canale5 in which Jorge Mario Bergoglio appeared in the unusual role of sponsor of the pharmaceutical companies. We had already seen him in the role of politician, of trade unionist, of promoter of uncontrolled immigration, of supporter of welcoming illegal immigrants, and of philanthropist. In all of these metamorphoses what has always emerged, alongside his capacity to totally remove...
  • Can we separate the good that Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias did from his sin?

    Two days before Christmas, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries confirmed that its founder had engaged in sexual misconduct over the course of many years. Ravi, a highly regarded speaker, author, and apologist, died a few months ago. In its initial “interim” report RZIM leadership not only confirmed the allegations but promised a full and thorough final report. Like so many others, I’m devastated. Ravi was not only a significant personal influence for me, he was a great friend of this ministry for years. In fact, he was a guest on one of the last radio broadcasts I co-hosted with Chuck Colson....

    In a December 23 article published on mises.org, Lipton Matthews made the compelling case for advocates of free market capitalism to prioritize the moral superiority of capitalism rather than making the case for capitalism’s superior productivity.“Demonstrating the impracticality of socialism is necessary, but is also an ineffective strategy to galvanize goodwill for capitalism, because objections to capitalism are usually predicated on moral grounds,” he wrote.Indeed, in the battle of emotions vs. rational justification in the human brain, emotions are king. You cannot penetrate emotional objections with more charts and spreadsheets.The most compelling case for economic freedom is not its economic...

    In 2020 alone, more than 2,000 Christians were brutally hacked to death by radical Muslims in Nigeria. Add to that the wife in Uganda whose Muslim husband forced her to drink pesticide after he found two Bibles in her suitcase, and the minister shot to death by three gunmen in India while returning home after baptizing new believers. Religious persecution is alive and well. Why do folks want to impose their beliefs on everybody else? Is it a control thing? A way to validate one’s own faith? Or, perhaps thinking it’s God’s will to force a particular religion? We may...
  • The Most common religious identity among young adults is 'none;' belief in God not necessary for morality: study from AEI’s Survey Center on American Life

    The most common religious identity among young adults in the U.S. is "none," and the majority of Americans don’t believe it’s necessary for a person to believe in God to be moral and have good values, a new survey has found. Released Tuesday, AEI’s Survey Center on American Life investigating contemporary religion in the U.S. found that among young adults (age 18 to 29), the most common religious identity today is none. More than one in three (34%) young adults are religiously unaffiliated.Nearly nine in 10 (87%) Americans report they believe in God, but just over half (53%) report they...

    The list of Bible prophecy teachers that say America is in end-of-the-age Bible prophecy is impressive. Speculation abounds as to why (moral decline, economic collapse, sneak attack, etc.). Most of the items in this article are about America’s declining morals. One, on Oct. 18, 2020, Dave Hodges reported that Pres. Trump recently said that if he is re-elected, vaccinations for the Coronavirus will not be made mandatory. I cannot predict who will get elected, but I pray that vaccinations will not be mandated. Two, on Oct. 15, 2020, it was reported that Kris Jacks, a member of the Colorado Democratic...

    May I offer a few thoughts as an outsider to mainly an American audience? Over the last 30 to 40 years, I used to say that the Lord could come any time, and we believed that. We used to point to bad things in the world and say we were living in the last days. We had our crooked politicians, Israel was in place, and the 10 nations of Europe formed the European Common Market. No one of us had heard about “political correctness”; no one imagined it would be law that men can marry men, and there would be...

    A Democratic Party leader in Colorado says the 2020 election amounts to a "revolution," meaning lying, cheating and stealing are morally acceptable actions if they help bring about the defeat of President Trump in November. Kristopher Jacks, a member of the executive committee of the Colorado Democratic Party, expressed his beliefs in an undercover video released by Project Veritas. "I am going to do everything morally acceptable to win. I will lie. I will cheat. I will steal. Because that's morally acceptable in this political environment. Absolutely. We are pirates on a pirate ship," he said. "I want to make...

    In order to save our country, we need to defend and preserve our system of capitalism. It cannot be defended by simply pointing out that socialism has never worked or by pointing out that capitalism is the only system that has raised people out of poverty. Socialists don't seem to care about these facts. Instead, they claim that they can implement socialism the right way. It is hard to defend capitalism because it has been under attack for decades and the attacks are believed. Many of these assaults have taken place in school with numerous subtle or outright negative comments...

    Question: Was it immoral to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Yesterday, August 6th, the world commemorated the 75th anniversary of America dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, thus commencing the “atomic age.” Seventy-five years later, the debate still rages on whether it was immoral for President Truman to authorize the use of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and then a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki three days later. I believe that President Truman made the right decision, the moral decision and one that stands moral scrutiny and the test of history. To properly evaluate the decision to...

    In 2020, something dramatically changed—and not for the better. The sloppy conventional rhetoric aside, it was most definitely not some “pandemic” that succeeded in undermining the economic, psychological, and communal well-being of hundreds of millions (possibly as high as 1.6 billion) of human beings around the planet.  And it was not some virus—“the Virus”—that wreaked havoc in the United States. Rather, it is the mass hysteria over a virus fomented by materially, ideologically, and electorally-motivated political and media elites that accounts for the incalculable suffering of countless human beings. In America, since March and courtesy of state governors and...

    Lewis Hamilton, the six-time world champion British Formula One driver, recently criticised his colleagues in the sport for saying nothing in the wake George Floyd’s death. If any answer to this accusation were required, a reasonable one might have been that it was not their place as mere car racers to comment on such matters. If they had wanted to engage in polemics, however, they might have pointed out that Hamilton had remained silent about many terrible events in the world, for example (to take only one such) the war around the Great Lakes of Central Africa, which so far...

    Much-hyped Moderna mRNA-1273 Covid-19 Vaccine Uses Aborted Fetal Cells – Sanofi Pasteur’s Version Does Not (Clearwater, FL) In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies are racing to provide a vaccine to prevent further spread of the disease. Unfortunately, Moderna, the company that has been recently touted in news headlines for its developing mRNA-1273 vaccine to fight the virus, uses aborted fetal cell cells. Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, a prolife organization whose mission is to end the use of aborted fetal material in vaccines and medicines, said her suspicions were raised after checking Moderna’s...

    The economic indicators all show the economy is booming. Unemployment is at record lows. The stock market is seeing record highs. Wages are up, and taxes are down. Stifling regulations are being lifted. Everything seems to be working just fine. There is much truth in this perception of a boom. Part of this can be attributed to less government interference and taxation. Unnecessary government regulation and spending always hurt the economy. When markets are freer, profits tend to come galloping back. And much has galloped back. However, beneath the surface, major problems threaten the boom. These problems have long plagued...
