By Nancy Valko   |   04.30.18
An April 13, 2018 USA Today op-ed titled “Make an End-of-life plan or Lose your Money and Choices in your Dying Days” begins with the statement “End-of-life care can bankrupt your family and rob you of choices. End the denial about dying. Make a plan in case you end up seriously ill and frail.” Ms. Bryant is very upfront about using the economic argument about aging and the enormous toll it can take financially and personally on the family as well as medical costs.

Defying Hollywood, ‘I Can Only Imagine’ Soars at the Box Office, Resonates with Viewers
By Tami Jackson   |   03.23.18

Aborting Down Syndrome People and the Monster That is Us
By Pat Hickey   |   03.12.18
I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to do the testing for Down syndrome. Back then, it was amniocentesis, performed after 15 weeks; now, chorionic villus sampling can provide a...
Lunacy On The Left
By Rev. Thorin Anderson   |   03.10.18

The Left Really Is Trying to Silence Us
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.05.18

Virtue-Signalling from Leftists on Arming Teachers
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.01.18

Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour
02.02.18
Last Saturday I dropped off my two oldest sons and their friend at the theatre. I planned to kill a couple of hours at the bookstore, on my laptop, at a coffee shop, whatever. When I got out of the car the balmy two-degree temperature in Pittsburgh prompted second thoughts. Instead, I strolled into the theater complex, looked around, and saw a poster for “Darkest Hour.” I vaguely knew it was a movie about Winston Churchill. I bought a ticket and went in.

By John Biver   |   01.22.18
Last year brought a flurry of news reports about how Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have been actively working to suppress the conservative message.

By Robert Knight   |   01.11.18
As we stand on the threshold of a new year, a phrase from Simon and Garfunkel’s song “The Boxer” sums up why America’s division into two warring worldviews seems to be widening. “A man hears what he wants to hear...
Asinine Idea to Protect Christian Vendors from Lawsuits
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.30.17
Legal affairs columnist at The Daily Beast, Jay Michaelson, has offered the dumbest idea yet to solve the problem of homosexual couples trying to force Christians to provide goods and services for their faux-weddings. Michaelson, who writes on “law, religion, and sexuality,” is a graduate of Columbia University and Yale Law School, which provides clear evidence that intelligence and prestigious educations provide no bulwark against foolishness.
