No, Obama is not a Muslim

No, dummies, Obama is NOT a Muslim   by Don Hank   I regularly receive propaganda pieces from various organizations with assertions representing a very common viewpoint among Neocons, worded essentially as follows: The recent sham and highly dangerous deal with Iran over its nuclear weapons development is proof enough that the president sides with …

Dear Secular Humanist: Please Keep Your Religious Views about Abortion out of Politics!

As it happens, many of the ‘facts’ entertained by ‘secularists’ as ‘facts’ have no better basis than Christians have. That being the case, why should the secularist be allowed to impose their ideas on us, but we don’t have the right to try to do the same to them?

I Can See the Next Holocaust From My House


You probably don’t know who Julian Savulescu is, just as your average American off the street in 1910 wouldn’t have known who Charles Davenport was. You probably don’t know who Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva are, just as your average American in 1920 wouldn’t have known who Alfred Hoche and Karl Binding were.

Why the West is deliberately failing

by Don Hank The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so… The scientific method, while still used in scientific experiments in the laboratory and clinic, has long been abandoned in the persuasive arts, notably journalism, but also in politics. Any journalist analyzing facts …

Opposing the tyrant while drinking his Kool-Aid

You can’t have it both ways. Either you want to stop the tyrant or you want to assist him.   by Don Hank   Pat Condell has a unique way with language, as a recent video shows. Look at this delightful phrase: ” [the EU]…will collapse under the weight of its own illegitimacy.” It occurs to …

Christianity and Libertarianism and the Consent of the Governed

This is why I led off with the John Adams quote. ‘Moral and religious people’ will continue to be ‘moral and religious’ whatever freedoms or restrictions are placed on them by the government. I might say: “Libertarianism was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the [government] of any other.” There are any number of forms of government that can work with a ‘moral and religious people.’ For an amoral or immoral or anti-moral or non-religious or anti-religious people, no kind of government is going to work for the long haul.

Are Muslims God’s enforcers?

Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against Him. Daniel 9:11 by Don Hank In the comments section of …

Conference Calls for Defense of Family through Film and Culture

Anthony Horvath, a contributor at Laigle’s Forum, is the Executive Director of Athanatos Christian Ministries which in turn is an apologetics organization with a unique bent: it aims not just to defend the Christian faith through evidence and argumentation, but by influencing the culture through the arts.

Their second annual online apologetics conference has a more narrow emphasis: a defense of Biblical marriage and the family through film, video, and movies. After all, the family is constantly being undermined in our movies and sitcoms. Homosexuality is being normalized right beneath our noses, and with it gay ‘marriage.’ The defense will have to be mounted not just at the political level, though. We’ll have to fight fire with fire. And, as it happens, Christians were never supposed to abandon the arts to secularists, anyway.

Please take the time to check out the conference home page:

The demolition of conscience

Olavo de Carvalho Diário do Comércio, December 21, 2009 Whoever has fully understood my article “Weapons of freedom” must also have realized the conclusion to which it unavoidably leads: a good part of the moralizing effort expended by the “religious Right” in cleansing a corrupt society is useless, since it ends up being readily absorbed …
