How American Evangelicals Are NOT Following New Testament Christianity

Much more than a single article could be written detailing all the ways in which American evangelical Protestantism looks very different from the early church. Certainly not all of the developments in our external circumstances or internal practices have been for the worse. But one key way in which American evangelicals have not been closely hewing to the faithful biblical example of our spiritual forefathers and foremothers is in the basic attitude and response we often have towards what to do about blatant unfaithfulness within the church itself.

Court Tells Pro-Life Midwives They Must Participate in Abortions or Lose Their Jobs

In a horrible defeat for conscience rights for medical professionals, a British court today ruled that a pair of midwives who didn’t want to be involved in assisting abortions must do so. Midwives Mary Doogan and Connie Wood won a lower court decision last year but the UK’s Supreme Court heard an appeal brought by the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, which is supported by the pro-abortion British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) and the Royal College of Midwives.

Obama and Cuba: The Triumph of Ideology over U.S. National Interests

The American Left has loathed the embargo and overlooked all of Castro’s repressive actions since the 1960s. They have blamed the U.S.–Cuba deadlock entirely on the United States and have sought the end of the embargo whenever a Democrat was in the White House. Under Johnson, Carter, and Clinton they did not get their way; that had to await Obama.

Special Editorial: Surrender to North Korea

In October 1940, Americans flocked to movie theaters to see Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator, mocking the most powerful tyrant on the globe. In December 2014, movie theaters and then the production company cancelled the release of The Interview because of threats of terror from a tinpot, though totalitarian and evil, tyrant who rules a weak and decrepit nation.

New FBI Hate Crime Stats: Another Blow to Islamist Fictions

The FBI’s newly released hate crime statistics for 2013 offer a fresh example of how reality refuses to conform to the dubious narrative of widespread Muslim victimization at the hands of American bigots. As in previous years, most hate crimes were not religiously motivated, most religiously motivated hate crimes were anti-Jewish, and Muslims suffered fewer total incidents than many groups and fewer per capita than gays or Jews. Anti-Islamic crimes did not involve greater violence than others and have not become more frequent. A glance at the details:

FAYETTEVILLE: When an LGBT ordinance comes to town

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (BP) — Although I have been in the ministry nearly 30 years, the Fayetteville ordinance promoting the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) agenda was the first time I felt the need to oppose the local government to stop an action they had taken. On Dec. 9, Fayetteville voters successfully repealed the ordinance, which the city council had enacted on Aug. 19. While I will be glad for this issue never to occur again, a few lessons have been learned along the way:

Growing Public Support for Gun Rights

For the first time in more than two decades of Pew Research Center surveys, there is more support for gun rights than gun control. Currently, 52% say it is more important to protect the right of Americans to own guns, while 46% say it is more important to control gun ownership. Support for gun rights has edged up from earlier this year, and marks a substantial shift in attitudes since shortly after the Newtown school shootings, which occurred two years ago this Sunday.

6 Religious Liberties for Students and Teachers at Christmastime

Candy canes, Christmas trees, manger scenes . . . if you’re like many Americans, these symbols conjure up fond memories of Christmas—the day Christians celebrate the birth of Christ. As a country, we love celebrating the Christmas season, but in recent years, the holiday has come under attack due to its religious origins. MUM’S THE REASON FOR THE SEASON? For example, the hostility is epitomized in the infamous “Candy Cane Case,” which began in 2003 when two Plano Independent School District (ISD) elementary school students tried to hand out goodie bags during their class’ “winter parties,” but their principals banned their gifts because they contained religious content.

Student fighting for concealed carry shot on campus

Nathan Scott is a student at Florida State University in Tallahassee. He has a job working in the school library and is a member of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus at FSU. And he is a (barely) walking example of why his cause is so crucial, after being shot in the library recently and having no way to defend himself. The group has been lobbying for several years to get the ban on lawful concealed carry of firearms on campus lifted. They argue that in a life-or-death crisis, when seconds count, police being just minutes away is not good enough. In the event of a violent criminal attack, they argue, a lot of damage can be done in the minutes – or seconds – before police can arrive.

In 9 States, Legislators Consider Making High School Students Pass Citizenship Test

Should high school students have to pass the citizenship test? The Civics Education Initiative, an Arizona-based non-profit group, is introducing legislation in Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah that would require all high school students to pass the same test that immigrants applying for U.S. citizenship must pass. The test includes questions about U.S. history and government and the Constitution. There’s reason to believe too many Americans aren’t getting enough of a civics education these days. According to the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, just one-third of Americans can name all three branches of the federal government. More alarming is the fact that another third can’t even name a single branch.
