See For Greater Glory »

Of special interest to all freedom lovers is the sweeping, new, epic, independent film directed by Dean Wright, written by Michael Love and starring Andy Garcia, For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada, that has just been released in theaters across the U.S. This story is one with particular interest to Garcia, the...

You Call This a War? I’ll Show You a War »

In light of Obama’s “National Defense Resources Preparedness” Order, I’d like to comment on a troubling trend I’ve seen in American discourse about war since 9/11. From left to right, it was often said that the U.S. government’s interventions abroad as well as its activities at home did not rise to the level of...

Taxes for Alms? Or for Crosses? »

In claiming during his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday that he wishes to tax the rich because that is what Jesus would do, President Obama demonstrated he is equally confused on the teachings of Jesus, as he is with history and economics: The rich should pay more not only because “I...

What’s Wrong with This Picture: MSM Coverage of Obama’s Signing Homeland Battlefield Bill »

On Saturday, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) a/k/a the “Homeland Battlefield Bill,” (so named because it defines the entire U.S. as a battlefield in the War on Terror), that grants the executive virtually unlimited power to indefinitely detain any American citizen he deems a suspected “belligerent”—at his own...

Siobhan Reynolds (1961-2011), a True American Heroine »

Siobhan Reynolds was killed on Saturday, December 24, in a plane crash. Not many people knew her, I’m sure, yet she was a true heroine. She had, however, nothing whatever in common with those who are commonly regarded as heroes, especially the soldiers who slaughter, maim, and bring grief to unoffending people all over the world at...

Civil Society or Dictatorship? »

Put aside all other issues for a moment, and ignore the trivialities that dominate the airwaves and what passes for national debate in this country. The Senate this week ratified a defense authorization bill containing an amendment cosponsored by Democratic Sen. Carl Levin and Republican Sen. John McCain that would empower the military to...

Love One Another »

It is fortuitous that the 10th anniversary of 9/11 has fallen on a Sunday, and I hope pulpits everywhere resonated with Jesus’s message in the Sermon on the Mount: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Earlier this summer, we spent an unforgettable 10 days participating in the C.S....

Some More Book Suggestions for the 9/11 Anniversary »

Since we’re heading into the second decade of the war on terrorism, I thought I’d add to Mary’s fine recommendation that everyone read Crisis and Leviathan. I can’t strongly enough echo her suggestion, and it’s a perfect one for this time in particular. But I fear this particular crisis, to say nothing of its...

The Newest on the U.S. Dungeon at Guantanamo »

The newest round of WikiLeaks revelations unearths troubling facts about the U.S. prison facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Operating for more than nine years now, the prison camp was originally said to be holding “the worst of the worst”—terrorists of the same moral plane and dangerousness as those who committed the attacks of 9/11....

Easter Lessons, Revisited »

First posted last Easter, here again are my contemplations on the meaning of Easter: This week is the most holy for Christians, as we commemorate Jesus’ trials, scourging, crucifixion, and triumph three days later over the Roman Empire’s most fearsome weapon: death. Christians and non-Christians alike can take many worthy lessons from these events....
