    Today is the birthday of John Calvin, Pastor, theologian and scholar .... One may disagree with his theology .. but his contribution to the church and the world can not be denied.. "In 1559, as part of his social reforms, Calvin founded a school for training children as well as a hospital for the indigent. His Geneva Academy attracted students from all over Europe and in 1564, when he died, had 1,200 on the roll. Education could inculcate values and morality. His pedagogy was quite progressive; teachers should not be authoritarian but “should join [and] walk with [students] as companions”...
  • Jay Carney: Obama ‘Literally’ Doing What He Said Was Unconstitutional in 2011

    Former White House spokesman Jay Carney admitted on CNN that President Obama did indeed flip-flop on executive amnesty. Host Anderson Cooper asked Carney for his opinion, after showing a series of clips of Obama denouncing executive amnesty, “So, I mean, other than his frustration, what has changed? I mean, he’s a constitution scholar. What has changed that allows him to do this?” “I think if he could have those words back, especially the first clip where he specifically talked about suspending deportations,” Carney said, “that is literally what he is doing today.” Carney went on saying, “In later instances including...

    Earlier Tuesday afternoon, Obama and White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew met about 20 Conservative Jewish community leaders. ... "I not going to tell you again how I even feel about Israel, but why [are] we still talking about it," Obama said, reminding his guests that all his friends in Chicago were Jewish - and at the beginning of his political career he was accused of being a puppet of the Israel lobby. ... Obama also stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it - and wondered how come no one...

    Justin Bieber is one of the world's most famous pop stars but is also decidedly more Jesusy than his day job might lead some to believe. When the young Canadian-born singer burst onto the scene, he was discovered in part by singing Christian songs on YouTube. But that is just the beginning of Bieber's faith journey, spelled out in a new book on the young star. Cathleen Falsani sarcastically self-proclaims she is the "pre-eminent Justin Bieber scholar in North America." Falsani has penned "Belieber! Fame, Faith, and the Heart of Justin Bieber," a book exploring the faith life of the...

    Here is explicit and terrible evidence that we must monitor the mosques in America. During my deposition in the $10,000,000 (say what?) lawsuit against me by Rifqa Bary's parents' lawyer, Omar Tarazi, he took exception to my description of the Noor mosque as a terror-tied mosque. In my opinion, this means that telling the truth about the Noor mosque was .......... in effect a violation of sharia in America. According to shariah, you cannot blaspheme Islam, the prophet or Muslims--i.e., put them in a bad light even if TRUE. I stood by my description. One of the examples I cited...

    The photograph on the jacket cover of Robert Wistrich's new book on anti-Semitism shows two fog-shrouded train tracks that careful observers will recognize as leading to Auschwitz. But for Wistrich, one of the world's leading historians of anti-Semitism, this image is not only a look at the past. While depicting Auschwitz as the culmination of where extreme Jew-hatred can lead, the photo is also meant to hint at the ubiquitous threat of anti-Semitism - what Wistrich calls a "future of uncertainty." Indeed, the British-Israeli scholar seems to suggest that while the worst is, perhaps, behind us, there may yet be...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has lifted a U.S. ban on a planned visit by a leading European Muslim critic of the Iraq war, in a move rights groups hailed as a victory for civil liberties. Clinton signed orders which ended the ban on Professor Tariq Ramadan of Oxford University, who was barred due to alleged terrorism ties which he denies, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said on Wednesday.

    NEW YORK (AFP) – Civil rights lawyers appealed in court Tuesday against what they said was the US government's ideologically based decision to deny a visa to a leading Muslim scholar, Tariq Ramadan. Attorney Jameel Jaffer, from the American Civil Liberties Union, told a three judge panel that the "government had "failed to identify ... legitimate and bona fide reasons for the exclusion." Jaffer, ACLU national security project director, argued before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York that excluding Ramadan, a research fellow at Oxford University, also threatened free speech in the United States. The appeal followed...

    ootball and men’s basketball players on the nation’s big-time college teams averaged hundreds of points lower on their SATs than their classmates, and some of the gaps are so large they call into question the lengths to which schools will go to win. The biggest gap between football players and students as a whole occurred at the University of Florida, where players scored 346 points lower than the school’s overall student body. That’s larger than the difference in scores between typical students at the University of Georgia and Harvard University Nationwide, football players average 220 points lower on the SAT...

    AP CHICAGO – These days, Bill Ayers doesn't want to talk about the Weathermen, the Vietnam-era radical group he helped found that carried out bombings at the Pentagon and the Capitol. That doesn't mean the man who has become a political headache for Barack Obama is hiding his past. In fact, all you need to do is stand outside Ayers' office at the University of Illinois in Chicago to be confronted with it. Ayers' connection to the Weather Underground is plastered on his door. A postcard for a documentary on the group shows an old mugshot of Ayers. Nearby is...

    ( According to reports in the Asharq al-Awsat daily newspaper, an Egyptian scholar, Dr. Abd-al-Rahman Reihan, claims that archaeological evidence in Dahab in the Sinai Peninsula shows that the Star of David, traditionally thought to be a Jewish symbol, is actually Muslim. Reihan claims that several incidences of the Star of David occur as a decoration in Muslim archaeological sites across the Sinai during the Fatimid/early Crusader period (969-1187). Reihan has previously claimed that the menorah (another traditional Jewish symbol) is in fact a Roman invention from the times of the Emperor Titus. Jewish scholars have dated the earliest archaeogical...

    Free-market economist and commentator Dom Armentano never considered his occasional reflections on America’s UFO conundrum to be particularly gutsy. After all, this stuff’s on "Larry King" now. But his Jan. 8 op-ed piece in the Vero Beach Press-Journal advocating government declassification was evidently too much for his bosses at the libertarian Cato Institute. A few days after his column appeared, the Vero Beach resident got a letter informing him Cato was in the “process of overhauling” its adjunct scholars program. More to the point, it was canning Armentano as an adjunct scholar. Incredulous, the man whose recent ruminations on UFOs...

    SAN FRANCISCO An Islamic scholar from South Africa was denied entry into the United States, prompting questions from Bay Area Muslims who had invited him to participate in activities marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Fazlur Rahman Azmi was detained by officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection when he arrived at San Francisco International Airport from London on Friday afternoon, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil liberties group. Azmi, who made previous visits to the country as recently as April without problems, was questioned for hours before being denied entry and sent on...

    THE CATHOLIC Church has not hidden from Christians the existence of the Gospel of Judas and other Gnostic writings. But scholars and certain sectors of the media have tended to use the controversial writings to forward their own agendas and discredit the Church, a Catholic biblical scholar has warned."There may be malice involved," said Spanish Dominican Fr. Angel Aparicio of the University of Santo Tomas. "They may be scholars, but they have their own agendas. I am so surprised the National Geographic is promoting this (Gospel of Judas)."Aparicio was referring to the National Geographic Society special aired on Palm Sunday...
