There is a huge problem with “religion.” But it’s not what you think.

The Atlanta government may not yet be burning books, but they sure burned a man who wrote one. The Georgia city’s mayor, Kasim Reed, announced Tuesday that he had terminated Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran — for expressing Christian beliefs in a self-published book.

Was "the talk" that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio gave his black son the right one? Because, contrary to media myth, a scientific study indicates that police are actually less likely to shoot black suspects.

White is right in activists’ book. That is, the right color to ignore when it comes to stories of people shot by police.

The Bad Christian and the Good Secularist

“If not for my faith, I would be barely human.” That was the answer English writer Evelyn Waugh gave when asked, as all Christians will be at some point, how he could call himself a Christian given his behavior.

With freedom of speech and religion under attack, it is becoming clear that from Stockholm in the Baltic to Tamworth near the Tasman Sea, an iron burka has descended across the West.

 

It has been revealed that ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber admitted in 2009 that the bill lacked cost controls and that, inevitably, certain individuals would have to be denied care — all while Barack Obama was telling voters just the opposite.

Using manipulated economic numbers, a liberal writer makes the case that the Obama economy is robust.

It’s bad enough when a Muslim cleric states that saying “Merry Christmas” is worse than “killing someone.” Now we have people born into the Christian tradition who say that the Virgin Mary was raped.

Some German politicians and religious leaders are recommending that Muslim songs be sung in Christian churches — during Christmas services.
