Your Computer May Be Hijacked

'I'm Crushed by Abortion Guilt'

Undeniable Evidence of Miracles

The present issue is miracles, and the physical traces of miracles, what science can explain, what science in the (near?) future may be able to explain about "mind over matter" and about the staggering potential of human healing. None of which should in any way undercut one's belief in God.

Europe’s Christian Comeback

The West is awash with fear of the Islamization of Europe. The rise of Islam, many warn, could transform the continent into “Eurabia,” a term popularized by Harvard historian Niall Ferguson and other pundits ... Such grim prophecies may sell books, but they ignore reality. For all we hear about Islam, Europe remains a stronger Christian fortress than people realize. What’s more, it is showing little sign of giving ground to Islam or any other faith for that matter.

Declining Christian Population in Arab Societies

Christians have been a traditional bridge between the mainly Muslim Middle East and the largely Christian West, transcending religion and emphasizing the similarities between cultures. Among the most highly educated in the region, they were often its moderates and negotiators with the outside world. Without them, says Nina Shea, director of the Washington-based Center for Religious Freedom, "we'll see greater Islamization of the people who stay behind."

The Dark Side of Vaccines

Because there are real dangers to vaccines, we owe it to our children, to ourselves and to God to become informed, and then make our decisions based on what is truly right for us, not on other people's notions of what they think serves the collective good. They might well be wrong. Remember, despite the medical establishment's paramount concern over "herd immunity," we are not cattle.

Pentagon Sought to Build 'Gay Bomb'

United Church of Canada Dying on the Vine

The United Church of Canada has baptized apostasy as legitimate theology. It is pro-choice. It is pro-homosexual practice. It is pro-everything liberal. It is anti-Scripture as divine revelation. Many clergy do not regard Christ as divine. Likewise, many discount biblical teachings regarding hell, Satan and sin. In other words, the United Church of Canada has joined the other religious conclaves that have turned their backs on God for the pagan dogmas.

Why England Is Rotting (And We Will Be, Too)

W.F. Deedes ... has participated in public life for over 70 years ... "I have never known a time when government exercised more control over every aspect of our lives," he says, pointing to the sheer size of the state and the inroads it has made into "personal liberty, fiscal responsibility and personal responsibility."
