Wising up to the Democrats' war on women

August 29th, 2014|

Originally published in the Washington Times.

In June I was at a Cory Gardner for Senate get-together. The Colorado Republican candidate told a roomful of friends that he was surprised to see his Democratic opponent, Mark Udall, running ads accusing Gardner of banning birth control – since Gardner had just picked up his wife’s birth control pills. Everybody laughed. […]

Turning kids into clients: Planned Parenthood’s evil schemes

Successful businesses have three things in common: A well-recognized, positive public image, an unending supply of new or repeat customers, and a product customers believe they can’t live without. Without these important elements, businesses are doomed. […]

Think Again: Who’s imposing their values on whom?

Shouldn’t college students know as much American civics as they do pop culture?

MRCTV went to American University to find out, discovering few students who could name a single U.S. senator or the number of senators from each state, though most knew the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go.” […]

Biblical windows on Manhattan Declaration

February 7th, 2010|

(’76 Editor) The Manhattan Declaration on sanctity of life, dignity of marriage, and religious liberty was faulted by my colleague Kevin Miller at the Vanguard Forum on Feb. 5 for insufficiently addressing such issues as the divorce culture and the idolatry of the state.

I agree with Kevin that those issues must be honestly confronted, especially since Christians have been passively and actively complicit in the worsening of both for at least a century now. But I am proud to be a signer of the Manhattan Declaration, imperfections and all, since on balance it does the Republic and the Church far more good than harm. […]

One million signatures is Manhattan Declaration’s next goal

(’76 Editor) As a signer of the Manhattan Declaration on religious liberty, sanctity of life, and dignity of marriage, issued in November 2009, I received the following update from organizers Robert George, Timothy George, and Charles Colson. If you have not already signed, I urge you to click the link and do so at once.

Dear Colleague: Thank you for your support of the Manhattan Declaration. It is off to an amazing start – over 370,000 signers and growing.

To start 2010 right, sign the Manhattan Declaration

December 28th, 2009|

’76 Contributor) “The Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience,” released last month, impressed me as a profound statement by a large number of Christian leaders taking a stand for the foundations of civilization, the family, and the sanctity of human life. People of faith have to work together to preserve and protect the fundamental principles of morality from those who seek to destroy them. This declaration brings together numerous Catholic bishops, Orthodox clergy, and Evangelical leaders—and as an evangelical Christian I will gladly partner with other types of Christians on the common concepts that form the backbone of Christianity. Here are the opening lines from ManhattanDeclaration.org: […]
