Conservative scholar Dinesh D’Souza has, with Gerald Molen (Schindler’s List) and John Sullivan, produced the documentary 2016: Obama's America, which was recently released in Texas and is now being presented at some 400 theaters across the country. The film persuasively projects a frightening future for America: emaciated in military power, weakened financially, with diminished allies such as Israel in a world increasingly dangerous and threatening.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a magical film about a miracle. It truly highlights the importance of family and familial love. It celebrates the wonderful support system that married couple Jim and Cindy have provided for one another, and the unconditional love of parents for their children.
Everything you ever wanted to know about teen depression is on the Internet. Just type in the words “teen depression,” and it’s all there. In a website entitled Teen Depression, I found the following: "Depression is the most common mental health disorder in the United States among teens and adults, and can have a serious impact on the lives of the many teens who suffer from depression." The fact that neither parents, therapists, nor educators will even admit that removing God from education can produce depression is a sign of how spiritually perverse our society has become.
When the presidential campaign gets down to the wire every four years, it seems that voters are stuck with an unappealing “choice” between two major-party candidates who differ little on core issues — their rhetoric notwithstanding. This year's choice between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama is no different.
This has not happened by accident.
The two killers at Columbine High School, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, were excellent readers and writers. They were intelligent, clever, and self-motivated. Yet, lacking a foundation in biblical studies, or moral ethics of any kind, the moral absolutes of the Bible had no meaning for them.
Paul Ryan may be the conservative’s conservative, but understand what that means: He’s out to save the welfare/warfare state from its own intrinsic unsustainability. He’s no small-government man.
By way of comparing Superman with Christ, I show how, his critics assertion to the contrary aside, Superman's selfless use of his awesome power enhances his humanity and makes him that much more worthy a moral exemplar.
Books about the history of Harlem have long fascinated me — my favorite being When Harlem Was in Vogue by David Levering Lewis. However, a more recent book, titled simply Harlem by Jonathan Gill, presents a more comprehensive history — going all the way back to the time when the Dutch were the first settlers of New York, and named that area for the city of Haarlem in the Netherlands.
What a mistake the gay and lesbian agitators made when they decided to attack Chick-fil-A and its outspoken president, Dan Cathy! It was a mistake that several prominent politicians promptly compounded, with some of the most absurd threats ever uttered by a city official. It was also an incredible blown opportunity for the Republicans’ candidate for president. Sorry, Mitt, but you got some lousy advice on this one.
Preschool teaching in America is a horrible mess. Most of the products on the market are of the Mickey Mouse variety that view children as brainless idiots who have to be taught by cute little animals who are more intelligent than the children. Their main teaching tool is pictures. The more pictures the better. The bigger and more colorful the pictures the better. No one in preschool or primary education seems to know how children actually learn.
