Horror author Stephen King said that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is “very scary” because he “is a fundamentalist Christian.” He went on to say in an interview with the Daily Beast: “He’s very scary. I actually think Trump, in the end, would be more electable than Cruz because Cruz is a fundamentalist Christian and …

Justice Scalia rocked the secularist establishment in many ways — from his views on abortion and same-sex sexuality to affirmative action and religion and the founding of the United States. In a speech he gave in January of this year, Justice Scalia said: “One of the reasons God has been good to us is that we …

A group of atheists wants the courts to declare the phrase “In God We Trust” unconstitutional and removed from our nation’s currency. These atheists are the secular version of the Islamic State who go about destroying anything related to competing religions. And atheism is a religion. “Satellite images confirm that the oldest Christian monastery in Iraq has …

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 …

Europe is on the eve of changing forever. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have been leaving the tumult of the Middle East and Northern Africa to stream into Europe.

Chances are the US Supreme Court will rule against the states that have constitutional amendments defining marriage as the union of one man with one woman. After all, Justice Ginsberg has performed a number of same-sex marriages, which should be …

By now you have seen articles about a recent Pew Study report about  the decline of Christianity and the rise of atheists, agnostics, and “Nones.” Actually, what we are seeing is a spiritual house cleaning.

A Pew research poll has verified what many Christians have felt, that the percentage of Americans who are Christians has declined in recent years, while the ranks of atheists and Muslims have grown. According to the poll, from 2007 to 2014, “Mainline” Protestant Christianity has declined 3.4 percent and Catholicism 3.1 percent. Evangelical Protestant Christianity …

The last time we had a candidate who talked about fundamentally changing something and voters didn’t pay attention, we wound up with President Obama and his plans for a Third World America. So listen up, people, because this is serious. Hillary Clinton just told attendees at the Women in the World Summit that she is …

I wish I had $100 for every time I’ve heard or read someone claiming that Islam is the religion of peace as I would be very happily retired by now. How can a religion that teaches its followers that they must either convert or kill non-Muslims be considered a religion of peace? How can a …

The media continue to pounce on Gov. Scott Walker for not dealing with an out-of-context question about evolution at the end of an hour-long appearance at the prestigious Chatham House think tank in London where he was on a trade mission.
