By: Erick Erickson Everyone really should be able to admit it is the oddest and most nonsensical fight. The Ryan budget does raise taxes.  It does fund Obamacare.  It does break sequestration.  And it does nothing to address the debt and deficit.  It is a compromised can kicked down the road just to a further distance than normal.  In doing […]

By: Michael Hammond / The RedState Greta Van Susteren claims not to like ObamaCare.  Last night alone, she talked about how ObamaCare was destroying the insurance industry, destroying medical practice, compromising your privacy, and insuring that (unlike the “1%”) you would not have access to the top doctors treating your serious medical condition (and would be forced to die). Minutes later, […]

CHRISTMAS WITHOUT CHRIST

CHRISTMAS WITHOUT CHRIST

on December 11, 2013, 6:36 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By William A. Donohue Even though roughly 80 percent of Americans are Christian, 96 percent celebrate Christmas. Can non-Christians and non-believers really celebrate Christmas? To some extent they can, just the same way those who are not Irish can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day: they can partake in the fun aspects of it, but that’s it. At bottom, it’s a hollow […]

by Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry Original Post Remember when Pope Francis gave that interview? And he said something heretical-sounding? And all orthodox Christians blew a fuse? And it turned out the interview wasn’t proofread and Francis never said that? Good times. One of the people who blew a gasket was the Southern Baptist Convention’s Russell Moore, calling the Pope’s interview a “theological […]

This column is archived here. This column dated November 21, 2013, created a firestorm of outrage and venom from hundreds of pastors and Christians. It was a rude awakening for me, for sure. I have long maintained that the vast majority of today’s pastors and church members are smugly content in abject apathy and indifference. However, after the vehement reaction […]

When things aren’t going your way, change the subject. That’s what Barack Obama did this week in hopes of grabbing onto something — anything — to distract the American people from the man-caused disaster known as ObamaCare. But is his chosen shiny object, the economy, really his strong suit? In remarks Wednesday, Obama declared that income inequality is the “defining […]

As long time readers know – I stopped celebrating the pagan based holiday many years ago – when I learned what it is rather than the lie told about it being about Jesus’ birth.  This is another of Satan’s lies and the gullible fell for it – as I did until someone taught me the root of this *holiday*.   I […]
