 I Love Ann Coulter (January 06, 2010 at 5:57 PM )
Ann Coulter is my favorite syndicated columnist. No matter how much criticism she takes, she provides a weekly column about liberal actions, or reactions, about current events with her own unique mix of facts and sarcasm. I just took a...

 Email about Abortion and Scripture (September 16, 2009 at 4:10 PM )
Quixote responds to an email about what the Bible says about abortion.

 Knee-Jerk Censorship against Intelligent Design (September 16, 2009 at 3:54 PM )
Recently, David Klinghoffer had a great post on how Darwinists pressured people to remove an interview with Michael Behe, the brilliant author of Darwin's Black Box. Fortunately, saner heads prevailed. I can understand why Darwinists are afraid to let people...

 Moral Hazard (October 15, 2008 at 7:32 AM )
Moral hazard is a concept that shows that people who are sheltered from the consequences of foolhardy actions may be more likely to repeat them than people who feel the pain of their actions. In other words, if you spend...

I have waited over two weeks to post about President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers for several reasons. I was disappointed that Bush did not pick someone with an established constitutionalist view, I was not familiar with Miers, and my...

 In Case of Insult (August 05, 2005 at 2:08 PM )
Email debates can be fun if the people with whom you debate actually understand you and your position. However, sometimes people show you that they really don't understand you at all. I try to be a civil debater, but so...

 What is Science? (December 10, 2004 at 4:04 PM )
We have been having an interesting discussion about science, the scientific method, theory-driven science and data-driven science as a small part of a larger discussion on intelligent design and evolution (macro- and micro-). The comments cover so much ground that...

 God and Stem Cells (November 29, 2004 at 3:59 PM )
As a social conservative, I oppose researching embryonic stem cells. Since I am also very pro-science, most of my colleagues do not understand my perspective on this. I think science, which is simply testing what you think might be true...

The following is from one of my readers and is posted with her blessing. While I disagree with most of her assumptions, I appreciate the opportunity to present an alternative view along with my comments. I want to encourage people...

 Jewish Religious Law and Abortion (September 12, 2004 at 11:41 AM )
I've previously spoken on what the Scriptures say about abortion and even wrote a white paper on the subject. In an age when people debate the meaning of the word "is", you are not going to find 100% agreement on...

 The Roe Effect & Abortion (March 04, 2004 at 5:17 PM )
On January 17, 2003, James Taranto opined that one of the long-term effects of abortion was to make the country more conservative. It's almost a truism that women who have abortions are more pro-choice than those who carry their pregnancies...

 Reader Feedback on Abortion (February 16, 2004 at 9:44 PM )
One of my Canadian readers, MRH, had some comments on my abortion paper What do the Scriptures Say about Abortion?. To the best of my knowledge, MRH is currently an agnostic, but has been studying the Bible in order to...

 Civilized Discourse with Clashing World Views (February 16, 2004 at 7:58 PM )
I have been posting less than usual recently. In part this has been due to real-life constraints, but I have also been engaged in an exchange of worldviews elsewhere on the net. One of my readers asked me to comment...

 Another Right to Life Bill (February 11, 2004 at 9:47 PM )
The media must really despise how the internet has reduced their monopoly on power. When I was vainly searching for a media report on Hunter's Right to Life Bill, I found a post by the evangelical outpost. The legislature of...

 Right to Life Bill, Part II (February 11, 2004 at 9:28 PM )
I asked several legal bloggers to comment on the Right to Life Act. Many responded, but the subject was outside the expertise of most of those I contacted. Fortunately, Glenn Reynolds and Eugene Volokh were kind enough to respond. Neither...

 Thoughts on DOMA (February 10, 2004 at 7:59 PM )
Clayton Cramer poses a conundrum. In a recent AP poll, 42% of Americans favored a constitutional Defense of Marriage Amendment, 49% opposed, and presumably 19% were undecided (the AP article did not say). The same poll stated that 60% of...

 Right to Life Act (February 07, 2004 at 3:02 PM )
Despite being given the silent treatment from the media, 23 members of Congress are cosponsoring the Right to Life Act which has the potential to overturn Roe v Wade.

 Soft Judgments Result in Death (February 06, 2004 at 4:38 PM )
The AP reported that a long-time drug offender, who continually violated parole, is the primary suspect in the murder of a young girl. Police said Joseph P. Smith told a witness that he had kidnapped and killed Carlie Brucia, and...

 Faking Mental Illness (February 06, 2004 at 8:48 AM )
In 1972, a psychologist named David Rosenhan convinced some of his friends to fake their way into psychiatric wards across the US. The pseudopatients were to present themselves and say words along these lines: "I am hearing a voice. It...

 Abortion and Politics (February 04, 2004 at 2:16 PM )
The political implications of abortion are fascinating and are starting to receive more media attention.

 Defending the Rights of Smokers (January 13, 2004 at 12:33 AM )
I dislike smoking - I'm not a rabid anti-smoker, but think it is a filthy and foolish habit. My maternal granddad picked up the habit in WWII, managed to survived four years of hazardous duty, and then died from lung...

 Macs and "Fundies" (November 26, 2003 at 4:29 PM )
This week’s Carnival of the Vanities is up. As always, it is an interesting mixture of blogs. However, I was especially struck by one of the posts. Last week, Bryan of Argues with Signs posted a rant condemning a Christian...

 Thoughts on the Death Penalty (November 19, 2003 at 12:36 AM )
Several bloggers have been mulling over their feelings about the death penalty given recent events. Specifically, some of those who oppose the death penalty are fighting their natural inclination to hope that sniper Lee Malvo gets the death penalty. As...

 Sportsmanship Lives (November 14, 2003 at 11:11 AM )
Imagine you are a successful high school quarterback. It is the last game of your high school career. The other team is obviously going to win, but you still have a chance to set the conference record for the most...

 Morality - Action vs. Thought (May 27, 2003 at 11:33 AM )
Paul responded to my post on morality. I am glad he did, because it made it clear that a significant portion of our disagreement came from a misunderstanding of what morality means. Since many of Paul's points are based upon...

 Legislating Morality and Follow-Up (May 24, 2003 at 9:10 AM )
Last week I wrote a post that incorporated several of my core beliefs. From my readings on history, my business experience, and my own moral beliefs, I discussed how human life is valuable, how abortion is wrong, and how countries...

 Politically Incorrect Murder (April 21, 2003 at 2:25 PM )
According to the Parsippany Daily Record (hat tip to the Wall Street Journal's Best of the Web) the NOW thinks it is OK for anyone, not just abortionists, to kill babies before they are born.The head of the National Organization...

 Making Abortion "Safe" (April 16, 2003 at 2:50 PM )
One of the nasty things about abortion - besides the fact it kills children - is that abortion clinics are the most unregulated source of surgery in America. Even veterinarians must meet higher standards than abortionists. I would think even...

 Teenage Pregnancy Rate (April 15, 2003 at 2:18 PM )
A new study has been released about teenage sexuality. Unlike many studies I have seen, this one was actually peer reviewed. It was published in the current edition of Adolescent and Family Health. I don't know much about this outfit...

 The Wild Monk is on a Roll (March 31, 2003 at 11:13 AM )
And he has posted a comprehensive article on Europe and the Post-Modern Left. Warning, it is not light reading and could serve a graduate report on the subject. It is quite interesting if you enjoy philosophy and has some interesting...

 Welcome Wildmonk (January 23, 2003 at 2:42 AM )
Yours truly just learned (hat tip to Joe Katzman) about another new blog with a political personality test. I took the test and received an 81. According to Wildmonk, this makes me a "Realist" according to the right and a...

 30th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade (January 22, 2003 at 2:40 PM )
Under the U.S. Constitution, slavery was legal for almost a century. Many scholars compare the Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision – where the “Justices” said States had no right to prohibit slavery to the Roe v. Wade decision where other...
