Friedman: America’s Problems are Ethical in Nature

China and India have been catching up to America not only via cheap labor and currencies. They are catching us because they now have free markets like we do, education like we do, access to capital and technology like we do, but, most importantly, values like our Greatest Generation had. That is, a willingness to postpone gratification, invest for the future, work harder than the next guy and hold their kids to the highest expectations.

New Gay Army: Top General Calls Christian Soldiers ‘Bigots’

Next week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is expected to begin floor debate on a defense authorization bill that would repeal the Clinton-era "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and allow homosexuals to serve openly in the armed forces. Last month, a top military official offered a glimpse of how the military might look should the new policy take effect: Those serving who oppose the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) agenda are no longer welcome.

‘Values Voters’ Tell Republicans: You Still Need Us

n the midst of an election year dominated by fiscal issues, a group of social conservative activists and politicians gathered in Washington to send an unmistakable message to both the media and their own party: we won’t take a back seat. From the ballroom podium to the corridors of the Omni Shoreham, the conservative Christians who attended the Family Research Council’s Values Voter summit this weekend said even though concerns over spending may be fueling activists on the right at the moment , the country and the GOP coalition still depended on cultural conservatives.

FDA to Consider Approval of Genetically Modified Salmon

Tinker with the genetics of salmon and maybe you create a revolutionary new food source that could help the environment and feed the hungry. Or maybe you're creating what some say is an untested "frankenfish" that could cause unknown allergic reactions and the eventual decimation of the wild salmon population.

Stephen Hawking Is Wrong

What Hawking appears to have done is to confuse law with agency. His call on us to choose between God and physics is a bit like someone demanding that we choose between aeronautical engineer Sir Frank Whittle and the laws of physics to explain the jet engine.

So-called Gay “Marriage” and the Battle for Words

Chuck Colson makes the case that "gay marriage" is an oxymoron. Marriage is a conjugal union of one man and one woman, so how can marriage be between two people of the same sex. Are so-called "gay marriage" advocates winning the battle for words? Watch this week's Two-Minute Warning, where Chuck Colson makes a profound, counter-cultural pledge.

From Kant to Kevorkian:  All Things Examined

From 1990 to 1998, Jack Kevorkian assisted in the suicides of more than 130 people. Although a number of those cases involved the terminally ill, the majority did not; and in five instances, autopsies showed no evidence of disease or illness. In a recent interview Kervorkian stunned an interviewer by saying that the worst moment in his life was the moment he was born. While it can be tempting to dismiss Jack Kevorkian as a misanthropic quack, the philosophy from which his actions can be traced goes back more than two centuries.

Welcome to the University

Most faculty members do not regularly attend church, synagogue, or yoga studios, but for some reason they are very concerned with Muslim rights. Possibly because Muslims -- at least a significant majority of them -- are very anti-Western.

What’s responsible for the breakdown of a Christian view of marriage? In a series of articles on courtship and marriage in Boundless, Dr. Leon Kass, University of Chicago, writes that the deepest and most intractable obstacle to courtship and marriage today is “a set of cultural attitudes and sensibilities that obscure and even deny the fundamental difference between youth and adulthood.?

Medical Research and Human Dignity Defending a Good Law

Ever since 1996, the law has been clear: The federal government may not pay for research in which existing human embryos are “destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death.? That is, the federal government may not fund embryonic stem cell (or ESC) research beyond existing lines of stem cells. So while billions of dollars of private and state money flow in to embryo-destructive research, federal tax dollars have not supported this morally compromised science. That is, until recently.

God, the Gospel, and Glenn Beck

Fox News commentator Glenn Beck, of course, is that Mormon at the center of all this. Beck isn’t the problem. He’s an entrepreneur, he’s brilliant, and, hats off to him, he knows his market. Latter-day Saints have every right to speak, with full religious liberty, in the public square. I’m quite willing to work with Mormons on various issues, as citizens working for the common good. What concerns me here is not what this says about Beck or the “Tea Party? or any other entertainment or political figure. What concerns me is about what this says about the Christian churches in the United States.

Which God Should We Turn To? The Restoring Honor Rally

Glenn Beck is stepping into a leadership vacuum, and for that I applaud him. But folks, that means it’s time for Christians to become leaders ourselves. 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells God’s people to humble themselves, pray, seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways. This is the biblically prescribed way for transforming societies.
