Socialism kills

Tue, Sep 2, 2003

In a period of two weeks during August, more than 11,000 elderly French men and women died of heat stroke. It is important to note that this is not nearly the scandal in France that it would be in America. In fact, upon hearing the news, French president Jacque Chirac decided to stay on vacation in Quebec. Why has this happened? In large measure...

If we can argue with God, our children can argue with us

Tue, Aug 26, 2003

The vast majority of people were raised with the ideal of unquestioning obedience to their parents. “Don’t argue with your father (or mother),” “Don’t talk back” and “You’ll do as I tell you” have been universal mottos of child rearing. A lifetime of studying and teaching the Bible,...

What makes a liberal? Part II

Tue, Aug 19, 2003

In the first part of “What Makes a Liberal?” among the points I made — but could not develop in the space of a column — was that “liberal” and “left” have become indistinguishable. This is new. And it is a tragedy for the nation and the world. When I grew up (I became a teenager in the early 1960s),...

What makes a liberal?

Tue, Aug 12, 2003

Why do people hold liberal-left positions? (Liberal and left were once very different, but not anymore.) This question has plagued me because I have long believed that most people, liberal or conservative, mean well. Very few people wake up in the morning planning to harm society. Yet, many liberal positions — I emphasize liberal positions...

A grand victory at the grand canyon

On July 14, 2003, the following news item appeared: “PHOENIX (Reuters) — After more than three decades at the Grand Canyon, three bronze plaques inscribed with biblical passages have been removed by U.S. park officials. . . . “Officials said they had no choice but to remove the plaques from three popular spots at the majestic...

Vanessa Bryant deserves admiration, not contempt

Tue, Jul 29, 2003

Vanessa Bryant, wife of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, has publicly defended her husband, who is charged with raping a 19-year-old woman. At a press conference she held her husband’s hand and defended him as a good man who had erred by committing adultery, but was not a rapist. She has received a great deal of contempt from the media and...

Tony, you’re killing us

Tue, Jul 22, 2003

Democrats may have applauded British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s speech to the joint session of Congress. But in their hearts, they and the entire left must have loathed his speech. To understand why, let us enter the minds of leftists and observe their thoughts on comments made by Mr. Blair. “Thank you, Mr. President, for your...

Would you rather your teenager smoke or cheat?

Tue, Jul 15, 2003

Decades of lecturing around America and of speaking with parents on my radio show have led me to an incredible conclusion: More American parents would be upset with their teenage children if they smoked a cigarette than if they cheated on a test. How has this come about? This is, after all, an entirely new phenomenon. Almost no member of my...

Bill Bennett and the charge of hypocrisy

Tue, Jul 8, 2003

The preoccupation with Bill Bennett’s gambling has reaffirmed something I long ago realized: Only conservatives can be hypocrites. Can you think of one prominent liberal ever labeled a hypocrite in the mainstream press? President Bill Clinton was labeled many things for his extramarital affairs and his lying, but never a hypocrite. But when...

Liberal damage to black America is enormous

Tue, Jul 1, 2003

One of the most dangerous myths in our lifetime has been that liberalism and the Democratic Party are black America’s best friends. For all of us who desperately want African-Americans to prosper, the destruction of this myth may be the single most important step to that end. The recent Supreme Court decision affirming the centerpiece of...
