I was impressed by the child's response to being elbowed out of the way -- she immediately resumed her previous position right next to Pelosi. I'm here. Get used to it.

The number of Americans who believe in God has taken a big dive, according to the results of a new poll from Gallup.

"Among conservatives and married adults, there has been essentially no change."

A new Pew survey revealed that the vast majority (70%) of evangelicals believe that the land of Israel was given to the Jews in the Biblical covenant with Abraham. Shockingly, this is more than twice the number of Jews (32%) who believe so. One rabbi believes that this symbolizes that pro-Israel Jews and Christians have more in common than they do with their less-Biblically oriented co-religionists.

If you believe the text of the Old Testament, there is no doubt that the land of Israel was promised to the descendants of Abraham, a promise fulfilled in the time of Joshua. However, it was also taken from them when they indulged in the same sins that had gotten it taken away from its previous inhabitants.

Whether Jews still have any claim to Israel beyond that they hold it militarily remains debatable. Part of the problem is that much of modern Israel is intentionally secular, which seems a poor foundation for seeking God's blessing on their holding of that land.

Personally, I'm content to leave the matter up to God, and wish the U.S. would stop trying to make all the problems of the World ours to solve. We can't afford that, and trying will only speed our own destruction as a nation.

A reader points out the fallout from the war between the pews and the converged pastors of Big Evangelical who hated – and still hate – President Trump and the nascent anti-Babelism in their churches. This is an important article because the blowback from the pews is now reaching places like First Things. The major […]

Any "Evangelical" whose solution to every social problem is "Vote Democrat" is misguided at best.

The model, 29, stripped off a Christian Dior red double-breasted jacket to unveil her bare chest and gold painted body while posing outside of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Aren't they supposed to be at the same height?

#11. Get older. When I was 13, I thought about sex several times an hour. Sixty years later, I go days or weeks between such thoughts, even though still happily married and still sexually active in marriage.

A Christian college in the United Kingdom has announced it is cutting off support – canceling future cooperation – with the famed Operation Christmas Child run by Franklin Graham's Samaritan's Purse ministry, because of a single complaint from a "humanist."

Another so-called Christian institution that won't survive even the slightest opposition self-identifies.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday said the only way to reduce inflation caused by Joe Biden and the Democrats is to raise taxes on Americans. Senators Schumer and Manchin discussed a new tax hike and deficit reduction bill as a way to combat inflation. Bloomberg reported: Key holdout Senator Joe Manchin said…

He's not completely wrong. If Congress raised taxes without increasing government spending, that would help slow inflation. Too bad there's little to no chance of Schumer actually doing that.

Ex-US National Security Advisor John Bolton has called for Taiwan to openly host American troops

Um, no! It's beginning to look like the current U.S. government WANTS to die in nuclear fire by picking a fight with every other possible nuclear-armed nation simultaneously.

Sir Geoffrey Nice QC believes that removing Russia from the UN Security Council or stripping it of its veto powers is a way to correct and make the current system 'more effective.'

Empty threat. WIthout a veto and permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council, neither the U.S. nor the U.S.S.R. would ever have joined the U.N. in the first place.
