exemption

The fat is now in the fire. A group has taken the Catholic Church into Federal court to protest its tax exemption. The reason? The Church has taken a public stand against abortion. The abortion issue is political, and therefore involves legislation, the plaintiffs assert. The Internal Revenue Code says that tax-exempt organizations that are […]

In 1992, the stories about Bill Clinton’s dalliances, coercion, and general disrespect for women were public news. They were all over the pre-Internet media. One of his senior staffers coined the phrase, “bimbo eruptions.” She got her own Wikipedia article because of this. The news had zero effect on his candidacy. Hillary shrugged it off. […]

Does the Bible have answers for the challenges of Keynesianism, socialism, liberation theology, and Jim Wallis? Yes. Desperate cries for liberation sound around the globe.

In every person’s life there are key turning points. I believe this is also true of nations and civilizations. These turning points have meaning only in reference to long, uneventful periods of conventional day-to-day activities. That is the whole meaning of a turning point. It turns us into a new path after years of stability. […]

Written by Gary North on January 23, 2016

George Orwell was correct in 1946 when he wrote the following: “To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” I would add this insight: “If you don’t know what you’re doing, ask for help.” The problem is: the vast majority of people don’t know that they don’t know what they’re […]
