This is a new one, but it’s an old one at the same time. Apparently, a substantial number of Muslims in the Las Vegas region have converted to Christianity. On its face, that’s good news. However, they seem to be having a hard time making the transition, as a group that admittedly includes a large …

You know you’ve overdone it when every time you take a step your joints sound like bubble wrap. Let me say, on behalf of everyone who has ever had to move during the holiday season, why the hell do we all have so much stuff in our lives? I don’t know what happened. We moved into …

Beginning January 1, police in California will be able to confiscate people’s guns without warning. The law, AB 1014, was actually passed and signed by “Governor Moonbeam,” Jerry Brown, back in 2014, but is only now taking effect. The cover for the confiscations will be “government violence restraining orders.” GVROs will be issued by judges …

One of the more depressing reminders of how short we fall of our potential as a country or even as a species is the odd phenomenon of post-holiday “flash mobs.” In a rash of criminal activity, mobs of young people in at least three states rioted through local malls on the night after Christmas, forcing …

If you travel around the world, you discover so many differences, unique ideas and strange customs that make one people distinct from another. And yet, the birth of one child in a land few of us have visited can be the catalyst for bringing together widely separated cultures. Enjoy this small collection of different takes …

It’s unusual to find a public official with the guts to stand up to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, one of the premier anti-Christian hate groups in the country. The litigious FFRF, which often uses threats of legal action to get its way and to suppress public displays of Christianity or Judaism, probably thought it had …

Dare we hope that there is someone honest left in government? The Health and Human Services inspector general has announced that he will be investigating Planned Parenthood’s handling of human tissue and whether the organization is in compliance with the law. While some Republicans in D.C. have been pushing to defund the abortion industry leader …

The state of California is treading on territory already ruled unconstitutional in New York by ordering pro-life and faith-based pregnancy centers to promote abortion with signs and pamphlets telling women how to get abortions. The law, called the Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency Act, is set to take effect January 1. It requires the pro-life centers …

Somehow, it’s difficult to take seriously a coven of radical, foreign feminazis sent by the United Nations to tut-tut the United States over its allegedly horrible treatment of women. Because two of the scarf-and-spectacle triplets are from Europe, it gets downright funny when they start castigating the U.S. for its treatment of immigrant women in …

That didn’t take long. The once-promising Paul Ryan finally got a taste of power and promptly jumped into the same slime pit his predecessor John Boehner lived in. The new speaker of the House has “curated” his first trillion-dollar appropriations bill by betraying everything Republican voters keep hoping their leaders will support and instead checking …

Last I heard, most schools are phasing out handwriting and never taught calligraphy. There’s also the whole “church-state” bugbear, which prevents students from writing, saying or reading the name Jesus in many schools. So you have to wonder what’s going through the heads of officials in a Virginia school district where students were given an …

In a move that probably overjoyed most of the kids in Los Angeles, a threat purported to be from jihadis persuaded officials on Tuesday to shut down the entire Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest district in the country. Officials in the first largest school district, in New York, received the same threat but …
