GLARING OMISSION AT NYT

October 7, 2010

There have been many reports this week about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear a case involving the Westboro Baptist Church.

CULTURAL IMPLOSION

June 23, 2010

Another example of our cultural implosion is the decision of New Haven high schools to offer diplomas without the phrase “in the year of our Lord.” Bill Donohue offered this thoughts on the matter as follows: “The United States was founded by Christians, and approximately 80 percent of Americans remain Christian today.
