Dr. Kerwick provides an analysis of Republicans' reaction to Todd Akin's remarks on rape and abortion.
The contest between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama for the presidency will end with a decisive, and possibly even a landslide, victory for Romney in November. Obama's endorsement of homosexual "marriage" has angered many of the blacks who previously supported him; his ObamaCare contraception mandate has alienated a great bloc of the Catholics who voted for him in 2008; and many of his previous adherents are disenchanted because the economy has gone from bad to worse under his leadership.
A Fox News poll taken between August 5 and August 7 purports to show that if the presidential election were held today, President Obama would defeat Republican challenger Mitt Romney by nine percentage points, but it likely doesn't represent the views of voters.
When Ann Romney told CBS News that Barack Obama’s campaign against her husband amounted to nothing more than an all-out plan to “kill Mitt Romney,” she wasn’t lying. Obama’s team has dealt Romney a series of low blows, but his running mate’s latest comments struck a “new low,” according to Romney’s campaign.
By way of comparing Superman with Christ, I show how, his critics assertion to the contrary aside, Superman's selfless use of his awesome power enhances his humanity and makes him that much more worthy a moral exemplar.
It would seem that all of the optimistic talk of “hope” and “change” that marked President Obama’s campaign of four years ago is now ancient history. This election season, as the Obama administration forecasted prior to the completion of the GOP primaries, would be full of nit and grit. As the most recent Obama super PAC ad makes abundantly clear, the president is making good on his word.
On August 1, legions of Americans from across the country came out in defense of Chick-fil-A, the fabulously successful fast food chain that became the object of left-wing hostility when its owner and CEO, Dan Cathy, expressed his opposition to same-sex marriage.
However, not everyone who sought out the nearest Chick-fil-A restaurant intended to support it.
In Tuscon, Arizona, a man named Adam Smith videotaped himself berating a 26-year-old Chick-fil-A female employee named “Rachel.”
With the issue of gay "marriage" assuming national significance, we would be well served to familiarize ourselves with the arguments of 19th-century conservative theorist Louis de Bonald against divorce as we rethink the nature and purpose of marriage.
When Dan Cathy, CEO of the fabulously successful fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, told Online Baptist Press that he supports the “traditional” family, he ignited a firestorm of controversy. For this, he was vilified by left-leaning ideologues, including the mayors of several of America’s largest cities.
In response to what many perceived to be a blatant violation of Cathy’s First Amendment rights on the part of these elected officials, former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate, Fox News television host Mike Huckabee, came to Cathy’s defense by declaring Wednesday, August 1, “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”
On Wednesday, legions of Americans from all across the country came out in support of Chick-fil-A.
Today homosexual activists are planning a “National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A.” The “kiss in” will consist of same-sex couples either photographing or videoing themselves as they kiss inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant.
