Matt Clark: Why Christians need to evaluate secular philosophies like Marxism & CRT

I’m taking a break in this piece from my usual op-eds about law because we need to discuss something much deeper. As the great Montesquieu observed centuries ago: public policy is based on the people’s values, and the people’s values are based on their religion. Thus, religion ultimately drives what society looks like.

Joey Clark: Why the Ninth Amendment is essential to the Bill of Rights

A Post-Event Messaging Strategy

I attended Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit this past weekend in Tampa. It was delightful to see so many young conservative patriots (over 5,000) in attendance - willing to stand up for our God-given freedoms and rights - the values our founders established for our country, which are secured by the U.S. Constitution.

Amie Beth Shaver: What are we doing to our kids?

Schools today chase the latest ideology. And because we can't see the damage or we choose to ignore it, the idea seems to be, what's the harm in letting a kid express themselves? Who cares if they dress up as a furry?

Guest Editorial: Alabama's Big 10 Mayors support Aniah’s Law

Under current Alabama law, judges have limited authority to deny bail to violent offenders unless the suspect is charged with a capital offense or poses a flight risk. That means that dangerous criminals are being released back onto the streets, even when its likely they will commit more violent crimes as soon as they make bail.

Think about it. In recent days President Biden himself has said that the pain at the pump right now is a “necessary part of the transition.” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said that it is well known that the current electrical grid infrastructure cannot sustain the push to reach Biden’s electric vehicle goals of 50% total usage by 2030.

Readers' React: To 'furries,' boldness and voter rolls in Alabama

Stephanie, I agree with your article 100%. When we believe that the Church is a place for worship, evangelism, and missions instead of politics and division and condemning to hell, then the boldest way and the only way the church can speak is through evangelism and missions, salt and light in government education and in the marketplace of institutions. Jesus went to the Samaritan woman at the well.  The politicians and church leaders nailed Him on the cross for doing that.

I stop at a little seafood joint. The place is surrounded by marshland grass, a wide-open sky, scattered live oaks, and roughly 8 million Chrysler Pacifica minivans. The place looks like a tourist trap on crack. But it’s getting late, so I go inside and order a beer.

Richard Simmons: Love and marriage

Modern people seem to be driven by their feelings and no doubt Hollywood has had something to do with that, particularly when it comes to our feelings and romantic love. It is as if we can abdicate our responsibilities in marriage if we lose our feelings toward our spouse.

Justin Bogie: Did the World Games live up to the promises made to taxpayers?

When Birmingham won its bid to host the 2021 World Games in 2015, it was expected to be a major boom for the area. At the time, organizers projected that the economic impact would be $256.5 million against a projected cost of $75 million. But now that the World Games have come and gone, was it worth the price? Did expectations live up to reality?
