Glen Beck, the libertarian hoist of a popular show on the Fox News Channel, said on his show last week that social conservatives in the Republican Party want to stick their noses into what Americans do in their bedroom.
Someone should enlighten Mr. Beck that this is a liberal, libertarian lie that has no foundation in truth.
In the first place, the opposition of social conservatives to abortion is a matter of life and death. Stopping abortions has nothing to do with what people do in their bedroom.
Secondly, the concern that social conservatives have regarding sexual issues such as adultery, premarital sex and homosexuality has to do with what occurs in the public square of America's cities, towns and suburb...
Planned Parenthood's annual report for 2007-2008 shows it claimed the lives of more than 300,000 unborn babies in the United States but referred fewer than 5,000 females to adoption agencies.
Also, the organization generated more than $1 billion, including about $350 million in taxpayer money.
These figures show that a lack of Christian faith leads to mass murder. Americans need to rise up and demand an end to this cycle of death, which is supported by many heartless judges and mindless politicians.

There is much to enjoy about NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: BATTLE OF THE SMITHSONIAN, which concerns the adventures of Larry Daley (Ben Stiller).
In this sequel, Stiller is no longer a financially struggling security guard at the Museum of Natural History, but has become an American success story due to his off beat inventions. But playing on the "Is that all there is?" theme, Stiller's character returns to his old haunt. There, he is informed that several of his old wax figure friends are being shipped off to storage at The Smithsonian in Washington DC. Various adventures ensue. Yet, with all the buildings that encompass The Smithsonian, understandably the filmmakers are like those over stimulated k...
Dr. Ralph Winter, founder of US Center for World Mission, passed away this week from complications of cancer at 84.
Dr. Winter was the foremost thinker in missions in the twentieth century, most notably leading the movement to reach communities with no existing Christian witness, the "unreached people groups."
"Ralph was a longtime supporter, encourager and very close friend of Movieguide, attending our events and telling us to keep on with our ministry," notes Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®.
In addition to the US Center for World Mission, Dr. Winter founded the William Carey International University and his 1974 address to the Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization became a paradigm shift in missions thinking th...

Christianity created Western Civilization. With its biblical principles of love thy neighbor as thyself and the belief all men should have equal opportunity, Christianity not only transformed the brutal, misogynist pagan culture of Rome, it also transformed the barbarian cultures wherever missionaries went. This fact has been pointed out by many of the best historians, including such disparate scholars as Christopher Dawson (RELIGION AND THE RISE OF WESTERN CULTURE), Mircea Eliade, Walter Burkert, and Alvin J. Schmidt (HOW CHRISTIANITY CHANGED THE WORLD).
Recently, a Muslim scholar, Ibrahim Al-Buleihi1, caused an uproar in Islamic circles when he correctly pointed out that all the achievements of modern civiliz...

James Dobson of Focus on the Family has condemned new "hate crimes" legislation in Congress that could give special protection to pedophiles and same-sex marriage.
There is "utter evil" coming from Congress these days, Dobson said, adding:
"The radical left controls the executive branch through the president, and the Congress where the Democrats have control of both the House and the Senate."
The new bill pending in the U.S. Senate, S. 909, would "create penalties against ‘victims' who [are] chosen based on an ‘actual or perceived. . . sexual orientation, gender identity'" writes reporter Bob Unruh of WorldNetDaily.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said the bill not only could protect pedophiles but also impose same-sex marriage on the st...
Another study - this time a longitudinal tracking children from age 6 to 18 - shows that "the younger children are exposed to content intended for adults in television and movies, the earlier they become sexually active during adolescence."
The study looked at 754 children, 389 females and 365 males, during two stages of life, during childhood and five years later when they were 12 to 18.
