The Falwell-Gay Alliance

Falwell, extending an "olive branch" to about two hundred homosexuals who attended the meeting (together with some two hundred "straight" denominationalists), insisted he has not altered his basic view that homosexual conduct is sinful. Rather, he is only calling for a more charitable view, he says, toward the "gay" community. Cal Thomas, a syndicated conservative columnist, has commended Mr. Falwell, ... read more »

DISgrace Institute: A Religious Disconnect

When it comes to religion, some folks have a real "disconnect." By that I mean they are strong in arguing for a particular doctrinal platform, but they see no relationship between their theological peculiarities and their conduct of life. The ancient Pharisees were of this sort. They adhered to the "strict manner of the law" (Acts 22:3). In fact, they ... read more »

A New Torah: “Tree of Death”

The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, which purportedly represents some 1.5 million "conservative Jews" in the U.S., issued a new edition of the "Torah." The term "Torah" has an elastic meaning in modern Judaism. In its narrowest sense, it alludes to the first five books of the Old Testament.

The Erosion of Marriage

According to a 2004 census, some 5,080,000 American couples are living together without the benefit of marriage.

America—A Nation Out of Control

An optimist views everything in the most favorable light possible. On the other hand, a pessimist sees things rather negatively. The optimist sees a silver lining in every cloud; the pessimist believes a dark cloud obscures every silver lining. The realist is somewhere between these extremes. Most of us would like to think that we are realists, and, if anything, ... read more »
