So this is tolerance: The gay blacklist

Pat Buchanan's picture

“There is a gay mafia,” said Bill Maher, “if you cross them you do get whacked.”

Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time,” was talking about the gay activists and their comrades who drove Brendan Eich out as CEO of Mozilla. Eich, who invented JavaScript and co-founded Mozilla in 1998, had been named chief executive in late March. Read More»

Much ado about Noah

Cal Thomas's picture

It wasn’t so long ago that conservative Christians believed Hollywood to be evil and some preachers instructed their congregations not to go to movies lest they be tempted beyond their ability to resist. Now Christians are debating film content. That’s progress of a sort.

The main complaint from critics of the film “Noah,” which opened recently with an impressive opening day take of an estimated $44 million in ticket sales, is that it doesn’t accurately reflect the rather slim biblical account in Genesis. Read More»

The left’s evolving hierarchy of rights

[Editor’s note: This article first appeared at TheBlaze.com.]

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you’ve noticed the growing clash between religious freedom and issues like same-sex marriage and forced funding of abortion.

Recently, the Supreme Court heard a landmark case on whether the federal government can compel a business to fund abortion drugs in defiance of the religious beliefs of the business owner. It’s merely one such case amid a flurry of lawsuits that even includes the Little Sisters of the Poor. Or, consider these situations involving gay marriage: Read More»

Thinking outside the Obamacare box

Healthcare costs threaten to bankrupt our country. Debates over Medicaid expansion, the Medicare “doc fix,” the state of Georgia’s health plan, coverage of autism and so many other healthcare issues merely shift these costs from one party to another.

The time has come for a “let’s go to the moon” challenge that truly addresses the underlying problems. Read More»

EPA’s alliance with radical environmentalists must stop

Drew Johnson's picture

While running for reelection in 2012, President Obama repeatedly claimed that he would pursue an “all of the above” energy policy. But after winning a second term, his administration seems to have decided that “all of the above” doesn’t include oil, natural gas or coal. Read More»

Frank and Aunt Mary Jane

Sallie Satterthwaite's picture

Who is the oldest person you know? goes the television commercial.
Twice in the past month I was grieving for “the oldest people” I knew. First for Frank Klein, then about a week later for Aunt Mary Jane Wilson.

Mary Jane died peacefully in her house-atop-a hill near Carlisle, Pa, where she had raised her four sons and her daughter since about 1940, and worked as office manager in the family’s paving operation when her husband died in 1971. Read More»

Home economics class

Rick Ryckeley's picture

When Mom heard we were baking fluffy biscuits from scratch in home ec, she gave me some pointers and told me to remember them. So, you see, the fire at Briarwood High School home of the Mighty Buccaneers was actually her fault. At least that’s what I told Principal Baker. He was not amused. I’ll explain.

I was called crazy. Never had it been done before. And yet there I sat, third row over and third seat back, right in the middle of Mrs. Steadman’s home economics class. Read More»

A fork in the road

David Epps's picture

I thought I had lost a friend. I had been visiting the Fork in the Road Restaurant in Peachtree City for several years. I enjoyed this restaurant because:
• It was locally owned and operated, with the owners among those cooking and serving;
• The employees were friendly and always helpful; and
• The food was as close as one could get to the way my mother and grandmother cooked. Read More»

The little President who never grew up

Terry Garlock's picture

If you ever wondered how Pee Wee Herman would perform as President of the United States, well, now you know.

With the background ooompah music of the circus calliope wearing on nerves, acrobats and clowns would perform their absurd routines to entertain crowds seeking diversion from the real world.

Sounds a lot like the Obama administration’s fumbling national security issues while the mainstream media dutifully diverts the public from our own leadership failures. Read More»

‘In my opinion’ is an inadequate argument

Greg Moffatt's picture

I read a letter to the editor in a popular magazine recently. The writer was responding to an article the magazine had published on processed foods. In one sentence, the writer demonstrated some of what I fear is wrong with the way we think in our culture. “In my opinion,” she started, “food companies put chemicals in the food to get us addicted...” “In my opinion”?
