Black Lives Matter from Conception Until Natural Death

Hillary Clinton, speaking in a Baptist church in Columbia, South Carolina on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, courted black voters as she sympathized with five black mothers whose children had died by gun violence.  Does Clinton really think that too many blacks have died violently?  How then is it that in receiving the Margaret Sanger award […] Read More

In the 2012-2013 fiscal year Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, reported that it had received $540.6 million dollars in taxpayer funded government grants.

Why the Hatred? Brief History of Jews and Muslims

I watched a video the other day where a Muslim student at a California college sneered at a Jewish speaker and stated that she was for Hezbollah’s declaration that ‘Jews must be exterminated,’ and I wondered, what is the cause of this hatred between Muslims and Jews? The answer I used to give people was […] Read More
