And this we will do if God permits." (Hebrews 6:…

Earth Day and Mother Earth [Last week] marked the 35th anniversary of the founding of "Earth Day" by former Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson. It [was] also V.I.

The result of this devolution has been an…

Prayer Punishment The ACLU has asked a federal judge to punish school officials for allowing a pre-game prayer at a high school baseball game.
