Are Conservative Christians Becoming Too Political?

Are Conservative Christians Becoming Too Political?

As a university president (i.e. an educator) I believe it is my obligation to educate. The historic role of the college president is to teach not only his students but also his community what it means to be a thoughtful and engaged life long learner.

In Wake of Trump, Democrats Suddenly Discover Freedom of Association

After years of telling religious people that they had a moral and legal obligation to throw out their religion and serve same-sex weddings, provide contraception, and fund abortion, the left now realizes that the ability to pick and choose those to whom you give your […]

God, Churchill, and Christian Civilization

God, Churchill, and Christian Civilization

The United States — and the whole West — stands at a critical point. Will Western Civilization continue to enjoy the fruit of the worldview arising from Judeo-Christian belief, or will it go from twilight to darkness in our lifetimes?
