From ‘Lassie to ‘Game of Thrones’: What Has Become of America?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.15.17
America was very far from perfect in the early 1960s. In much of the nation segregation was the law of the land and women certainly had far less opportunities than men, just to mention two of society’s inequities.

By John Biver   |   06.16.17
A recent Barna Survey said church attendance has been declining nationwide over the past 10 years. While the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose area ranked as America's most de-churched, eight of the top 10 "post-Christian" cities in America are all in the Northeastern United States. In Illinois, Chicago came in at number 19, the Quad-cities area at 50 and Champaign-Springfield-Decatur in the center of the state came in at 55 on this ominous list.
