It’s Time to Bury the ‘Executioner’ Lenin for Good

 

Next month, April 22, marks the birthday of the architect of that cataclysmic “proletarian” revolution, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov — known to the world as Lenin. These century-old events continue to dominate the news in modern-day Russia, where leaders grapple with how to deal with one tangible legacy of the Marxist past: After his death in […]

The Lord’s Day, Meet Darwin Day… and Shudder

 

February 12 is Darwin Day, and this year the international celebration falls on a Sunday. Look for theistic Darwinists to reassure churches that Charles Darwin believed in God, or at least that his theory of evolution harmonizes beautifully with Christian theology. The reality is more complex. In The Origin of Species, Darwin suggested the idea […]

Useful Idiots No More

 

“Tell him you are a Muslim, tell him you are a Muslim,” Nancy Pelosi instructed Congressman Andre Carson at an anti-Trump rally on Monday, moments after she had just introduced him as a “Muslim member of Congress.” She apparently felt that the crowd hadn’t sufficiently gotten the point.

Jihad in the Cathedral

 

On January 6th, St. Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, Scotland, hosted a guest reader for this Scottish Episcopal Church’s Feast of the Epiphany worship service.

Nebraska Law’s Advice to a Teaching Sister: ’Lose the Veil’

 

About a century ago, the Ku Klux Klan spearheaded a coalition of anti-Catholic organizations in Nebraska to lobby the state legislature to pass a law that would ban public school teachers from wearing religious insignia or garb in the classroom. And in 1919 the legislators obliged. But let’s not beat up on Nebraska — around […]

The Shame of Religious Persecution

 

Religious differences run deep in our pluralistic world. It may come as no surprise that such disagreements sometimes end up in violence. Yet that rarely is the case in what might be called Christendom. Indeed, in large part, there is little discrimination let alone persecution against spiritual minorities in majority Christian nations. The exceptions tend […]

Will Palestinian Christians Survive Another Christmas?

 

Christmas is supposed to be a happy time of rejoicing and being together with the ones you love. But in the city where it all began, it is coming dangerously close to being celebrated for the last time.
