Homosexuality: America’s Unwanted Export

Western nations once embraced biblical notions of marriage and sexuality. But five or six generations of Darwinism have left the culture in moral disarray. The highest court in the US has elevated homosexuality and same-sex “marriage” to legal status. Of course, given our Yankee pluck, radical change in our domestic policies

What’s Good About Pluralism?

Depending on your perspective, pluralism in a society is a virtue to be nurtured or a vice to be shunned. Good people will disagree about this. Some time back, our friend, Bob Osburn, wrote a brief but masterful article on the subject. He distinguishes between principled pluralism and pluralism “as

Why Does Anyone Do Good?

The grainy screen grab captures a heroic moment in Dallas, Texas, last month. A woman on a motorcycle was hit by a vehicle and dragged underneath.

Memo to Planned Parenthood: A Baby is Human, Not Hamburger

“… if we come to see ourselves as meat, then meat we shall become.” So wrote Dr. Leon Kass in his book, Toward a More Natural Science. So are we hamburger or human? It depends on your worldview! When we deny the existence of God, like modern secular society has

Atheists and Liberal Christians: Partners Against Human Dignity

Conceived in Rape and Worthy of Life: The Rebecca Kiessling Story

“I’m pro-life except in cases of rape.” Who hasn’t heard that sentiment? You may have expressed it yourself. Here’s another story that powerfully contradicts the idea that abortion should be tolerated in cases of rape. A few weeks ago we told the story of Valerie Gatto, who was conceived in

Rape, Abortion, and the Miss USA Contest

What is the value of the life of a woman conceived in rape? Does making a political statement justify a mother aborting her baby? A career opportunity? A pregnancy as a result of a rape? In the last few months, national or global news has included stories about three pregnant
