JFK’s ‘Speech on Faith’ – The Conscience: False Dichotomy Part II – Truth and Charity Forum

Perhaps the most notorious and oft-quoted example of Senator Kennedy’s miscomprehension of a well-formed conscience and the proper disposition of a person of faith from his “Ministerial Association Speech” is the following statement: “I believe in a president whose religious views are his own private affair, neither imposed by him upon the nation, or imposed by the nation upon him as a condition to holding that office.” In stating that it is neither the right of the Continue Reading →

THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Taking the Fight “Forward”

( It was less than a week before the election when I received the news that President Obama would be holding a rally on campus. The College Democrats were ecstatic. Flyers announcing his visit were posted everywhere. Students rushed to get their tickets. The university’s honors program sent out a special email inviting their top students to reserve seats on the stage as a way of representing the university. (All this was done, of course, Continue Reading →

THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Thought Control and the Scientific Hypocrisy of the Left

Leftwing media pundits were aghast this month. GQ magazine, that journal of serious political discourse, conducted an interview with Republican Senator Marco Rubio. In case you decided to check out from politics after Election Day (and I don’t blame you if you did), Rubio is one of the front-runners for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. GQ used the opportunity to ask a very relevant and important question burning on the minds of millions of Continue Reading →

For Fourth Straight Year, Obama’s Thanksgiving Message Doesn’t Thank God

Yet again, President Obama’s Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding. This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Continue Reading →

When Culture Abandons Reason (and Faith) | Crisis Magazine

For reasons that are both unfathomable as well as perplexing, the vast majority of young Canadians are champions of Barack Obama. I was informed that when a certain teacher asked her students who preferred Obama to Romney, all hands shot up. The entire class expressed unhesitating enthusiasm for the now re-elected President. Yet, no student, when asked, could give a single reason for holding the President in such high esteem. This phenomenon offers a good Continue Reading →

What President Obama Did Not Say – Truth and Charity Forum

In his re-election speech, President Obama, amidst enthusiastic cheers, made the following declaration to his audience and to all America: I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or Continue Reading →

Thomas Sowell: The Need to Explain

The most successful Republican presidential candidate of the past half century— Ronald Reagan, who was elected and reelected with landslide victories— bore little resemblance to the moderate candidates that Republican conventional wisdom depicts as the key to victory, even though most of these moderate candidates have in fact gone down to defeat. One of the biggest differences between Reagan and these latter-day losers was that Reagan paid great attention to explaining his policies and values. Continue Reading →
