atheism


If there is no God, can there be morality? I’m not asking whether atheists are moral people and do moral things. They do, but by what unimpeachable and ultimate standard? An atheist might say that certain laws are good for the advancement of the species. But let’s not forget that as an evolved species (according …

Why has America been blessed in many ways in the past? At its core, the answer has to do with the Judeo-Christian tradition. We are living off of the residue of that great heritage. As one author put it, “one of our nation’s primary advantages over many others lies in the greater strength of religion …

It’s a well-rehearsed story that occurs annually like clockwork as soon as the Christmas trees, menorahs and nativity scenes start appearing across the country. Every holiday season, some atheists get their undies in a bunch because they can’t stand that everybody else is celebrating. So like the proverbial Grinch whose heart was two sizes too …

One of America’s greatest liabilities is crime, not only in the cost of property loss and damage but the lives impacted by lawless acts.  The best solution for America’s crime problem can be seen when a criminal is transformed through faith in Jesus. In fact, it does quite often, usually under the radar. Case in …

My wife and I spent New Year’s Eve with friends. While we were enjoying our own festivities, I was watching one of the over-rated end-of-the-year celebrations on the Mac that was sitting on the mantle so we could keep track of the countdown. And what did I see? Admitted bi-sexual Jessie J singing John Lennon’s classic overrated atheist …

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 …

The American Atheists organization has trotted out its anti-Christmas — actually anti-God — billboards again: “Go Ahead and Skip Church! Just be Good for Goodness’ Sake. Happy Holidays!” There’s so much that’s bad about this that I don’t know where to begin. First, the use of “Happy Holidays.” A holiday is a “holy day.” That’s …

Every time you turn on some media broadcast, Donald Trump’s comments about Muslims and immigration are there. Nearly every Democrat and Republican has denounced his comments as “un-American,” Hitleresque, unpatriotic, and unconstitutional. Religion is now important, except when it isn’t. Where was the sanctity of religion when the Obama administration went after the Little Sisters of …

Dan Barker is the Co-President of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. He’s written an article claiming that “Christians” who commit a terrorist acts should be described as “Christian terrorists.” But are they really Christians as Dan Barker was? He mentions Robert Lewis Dear, “the North Carolina Baptist who is accused of killing three people and wounding nine …

Not only is Whoppi Goldberg the resident Bible scholar on “The View,” but it seems she’s also the resident historian. She declared on “The View” that “Hitler was a Christian.” He was a Christian in the same way that Judas was a follower of Jesus. The apostle John describes people like Hitler who had a Christian …

Stephen King has always had a love-hate relationship with religion. His fictional creations don’t work without a Christian context. The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption come to mind. Without God there is no moral universe to play against. King told Rolling Stone magazine that “he believed ‘in evil,’ but that all his life he has ‘gone back …

On May 28th, 1849, Robert C. Winthrop (1809-1894), a descendant of Governor John Winthrop, first governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, served as a Representative and Senator from Massachusetts and Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. He also served as the president of the Massachusetts Bible Society for several years where he advocated that …
