Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
Alexis de Tocqueville


Book Review 'Faith and Politics: How the "moral values" debate divides America and how to move forward together'

The author of Paradise Lost makes the killing of a good book a capital offense. We are not in danger of committing such an offense since Faith and Politics by Senator John Danforth came to us dead from the printer... [Read More]

Will Missouri Make Human Farming Legal?
It has come to the attention of many of the voters that some technocrats are willing to bring a child to the embryonic stage in his or her development for no other purpose than to harvest from that baby what are called stem cells. Understandably this is part of a larger picture which prompts the question "should we protect human life?"... [Read More]


Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and
subverted the Constitution...
James Madison


Dred Scott and Abortion The argument about one race not being included in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were only a smoke-screen designed by the Supreme Court in order to deny some their rights because property rights superseded human rights. The same deceptive reasoning is now being used to defend abortion-on-demand. History is repeating itself. [Read More]

The American Civil Liberties Union and Roger Williams
It is however one of the ironies of history that the ACLU owes a debt to Roger Williams who wished to disestablish the church as early as the middle of the 17th century. It is because an idea was hatched in the mind of Williams that the ACLU can claim the right to warn America about an encroaching church.[Read More]


Government cannot make man richer, but it can make him poorer. Ludwig von Mises


The Value of Freedom
Is there something that we can find that will refute the ups and downs of the free market thereby determining for us what the price of freedom should be no matter whom we are or where we are or when we are living? There is. The moment we have fixed a price on human worth we will then we be able to determine the price of freedom. We will discover that no price is too high to pay for freedom. [Read More]

Special Report on Deficit Spending
If America does not want to solve our fiscal problems, and if we only want to prolong our misery, and if we choose to teeter on the edge of bankruptcy (which is what radical Islam is hoping for) and if we prefer to act as if a deficit is nothing more than numbers on a ledger, we only need to do one thing. Keep spending the money we do not have because we think that someday we will have all the money we need and more. Be a spender. Gamble on the future. Belly up to the roulette wheel and put down borrowed money and have a blissful, short vacation in Vegas. [Read More]


A little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth
men's minds about to religion.
Francis Bacon


My Dear Friends,
At the request of those who advocate Voting by Christians, I have been asked to write an open letter to you, and I am pleased to do so. At your church, charity and good will are in abundance. I thank God for your fruitful ministry. Week by week my family... [Read More]

Church-based Communism
If we substitute the Communist term "comrade" for the Christian word 'brother" we will arrive at what Rev. Jones was saying. He was promoting religious Marxism like the kind that Barack Obama was accustomed to hearing for 20 years while sitting under the ministry of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. [Read More]

Islam OR Easter
Recently a politician with designs on the White House said that he is both a Muslim and a Christian. This is altogether impossible. In their purest form these two religions exclude each other. There is no middle ground between Islam and Christianity... [Read More]

Your Majesty, ...Sir Elton John, knighted by you within the last decade, has disgraced the order into which he was inducted. I am asking in the name of fairness and tolerance that his knighthood be both speedily and altogether rescinded... You are the Supreme Governor of the Church of England and the sworn protector of the Church of Scotland. I mention your titles because one of your knights has insulted the religion of the realm... [Read More]

Were the Founders Afraid of Religion?
Humanists and Marxists would like us think that men such as James Madison, an Episcopalian, were deeply suspicious of religion. They do not admit to the fact that America's founders were not distrustful of Christianity; they were wary of the papacy, especially since the Ohio Valley had been ceded to French Catholics. The founders knew that France stood for religious and political persecution. [Read More]

Integrating a Theistic Worldview into the Classroom
When the teachings of the Bible have been fully appreciated it will be observed that its pages are devoted to the doctrine of salvation in which all the persons of the Godhead participate. If as James Kalis says, "Christian education is not the accumulation of facts, but the molding of an outlook so that all things are looked at from a given center," then standing at that center is Jesus Christ.[Read More]

Letter to the Christian Research Institute
This is a letter from an angry Christian. I will pull no punches. Recently a series of articles published by your institute trumpeted a culpa mea that I have taken exception to and with justification. Stop groveling! You stated that in the past you were wrong about the Honor Oak (Local Church LC) movement led by Watchman Nee [1903-72] and afterwards by Witness Lee [1905-97]. Need I tell you that if you were wrong then and right now, it means that at one point you were careless in your research?... [Read More]
