Globalization in the Shadow of the Crescent

In May of this year, Audi posted a video on Twitter with the caption “At #EUDiversityMonth #Audi”. It had little to do with advertising the car itself.

Once again:… Continue reading Globalization in the Shadow of the Crescent

Don’t Judge Islam by the Actions of a Few Muslims, Says Leading Cleric

Recently, while decrying “Islamophobia,” Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb—one of the world’s most influential Muslims who so many Western leaders including Pope Francis trust and listen to—said: We do not hold the Christian religion, nor Christ [peace be upon him], nor Moses [peace be upon him] responsible for the terrible massacres of Muslims by believers of other religions. We do not label a… Continue reading Don’t Judge Islam by the Actions of a Few Muslims, Says Leading Cleric

The Covid Cult and the Ten Commandments

“Reproduced with thanks from Rabbi etc, Frontpage Magazine” In June of 2020 I outlined how self-proclaimed “progressives” are 0 for 10 when it comes to the Ten Commandments (see the article here).

Christmas is still a time of hope and joy

When the son of a friend of mine was quite young, he thought he had been told that Christmas was about the Baby Cheeses.  Only when he was older did he finally understand that it was about the Baby Jesus. Even knowing that, one cannot but suspect most people in the world, while enjoying the… Continue reading Christmas is still a time of hope and joy

The Day the British Press Lost its Mind

On the front page of nearly every paper in the UK were headlines like this one: ‘Suicide bomber was a Christian convert.’  The impression every paper wanted to give the public was obvious: it’s not only the Muslims who blow up people.  The Christians are at it too. The only folks you can trust are… Continue reading The Day the British Press Lost its Mind

When does being free necessarily mean rejecting governmental authority?

At face value, the plain teaching of Scripture is that we should obey those in authority over us.  For example, the Apostle Paul wrote this to the Christians who lived in Rome, the most powerful empire the world had ever known: “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except… Continue reading When does being free necessarily mean rejecting governmental authority?
