Religion is at war with the state in America. Zealously, sectarian organizations have breached our historic separation between church and state, upsetting the delicate balance that is a founding, constitutional principle of the nation. And, for too...
Little else illustrates the "real choice" that voters will be asked to make in this year's presidential election than the Obama campaign's juvenile Web ad, "The Life of Julia." Julia, we're supposed to believe, is today's everywoman, a cartoon...
