The Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court is a victory for religious freedom, yet the abortion lovers of the left continue to make the claim that it was an assault on a women’s right to “reproductive health”—which is PC-speak word for “pro-abortion.” Yet, if you listen to Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz—the “D” in her name stands for “dingbat“—women will be “den(ied) access to certain health care benefits based on their personal beliefs.” As we see in this guest commentary from Lauren Briggs, these claims are nothing but political hyperbole meant to reinforce the phony war on women meme the Democrats use whenever they don’t have…

bonhoeffer silence is evil

In Eric Metaxas’ New York Times best-selling book, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, Timothy J. Keller (best-selling author of The Reason For God) provided the following forward concerning the condition of faith during the rise of Nazi Germany: It’s impossible to understand . . . without becoming acquainted with the shocking capitulation of the German church to Hitler in the 1930s. How could the “church of Luther” . . . ever come to such a place? The answer is that the true gospel, summed up by Bonhoeffer as “costly grace,” had been lost. On the one hand, the church had become marked…

It’s Easter! Time for jihad!

The Strident Conservative, along with many others, took a lot of heat in 2012 for a story about Rick Warren’s embrace of Chrislam theology as a means to reach out to the Muslim community. Specifically, there were indications at the time that Warren had embraced the belief that Christians and Muslims worshipped the same god. While he later denied it—questionably in my opinion—it brought national attention to a growing trend of this theologically incorrect movement. Now comes a recent story in the Columbus Dispatch, where Rev. Deborah Lindsay of the First Community Church in Marble Cliff, Ohio is interviewed for her work in “blending” Christianity and Islam,…

Eric Holder finally defends religious freedom . . . almost

During his confirmation hearing in 2009, Eric Holder made this commitment to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the American people: “The attempt to politicize the department will not be tolerated should I become attorney general of the United States.” “I will work to restore the credibility of a department badly shaken by allegations of improper political interference….” Yet, beginning with one of his first actions as the new Attorney General, when he dropped charges against members of the New Black Panther Party for violating the rights of white voters in a Philadelphia precinct during the 2008 elections, Mr. Holder has established a track record as…

Jan Brewer sells religious freedom to the highest bidder

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed Senate Bill 1062, a bill that would have  allowed businesses, such as wedding photographers and wedding cake bakers, to  assert their religious beliefs in rejecting participation in same-sex wedding events. While she claims to have lamented over how the bill “could divide Arizona in ways we cannot even imagine and no one would ever want,” her true motivation really boiled down to simple dollars and cents. This bill was never about discrimination; it was about religious freedom. Due to her pathetically weak “leadership” on the issue, Brewer allowed the the pro-homosexual lobby to turn this into an “anti-gay” discussion.…
