Online school: Is it homeschooling?

Kate Patrick,  Homeschooling has been around for centuries, but online school is a comparatively recent innovation. In the last decade, all kinds of online education options have popped up, providing homeschooling parents with more options than there are curriculum stands at a homeschool convention. From Christian online academies to state online schools to post-secondary classes, […] Read More →


By John J Kirkwood, “Being a Christian is less about cautiously avoiding sin than about courageously and actively doing God’s will.”  It is testimony to just how far Metaxas has come that a quote of his own from his biography of Bonhoeffer is commonly mistaken as Bonhoeffer’s quote.   Eric Metaxas is the American Bonhoeffer.  With […] Read More →

Republicans rallying behind ‘religious liberty’

 Prospective Republican presidential candidates are expected to promote “religious liberty” at home and abroad at a gathering of religious conservatives, rebuking an unpopular President Barack Obama while skirting divisive social issues that have tripped up the GOP. The annual Values Voter Summit opens Friday in Washington with speeches from several potential presidential candidates, including Kentucky […] Read More →

Rand Paul rips Obama’s Syria plan

McCain, Kerry, Hillary, interventionists, anti-war hypocrites, you name it. Knowing you guys as I do, it’s the attack on Maverick that you really want to see. Skip to 41:00 or so. He doesn’t mention him by name, of course, but I think we’re all on the same page when we hear the term “moss-covered.” Damn: […] Read More →

The Challenge: Living Under Imperfect Law & Leadership

Rebecca Hagelin Editor’s note: this piece was coauthored by Hagelin’s daughter, Kristin Carey.   The US Constitution begins with the words, “We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union…” Our founding fathers acknowledged the imperfection inherent in all societies. Their goal was not the unrealistic one of forming a perfect, or utopian union. […] Read More →

Liberals Eagerly Put Women At Risk Because Of Politics

Kurt Schlichter, I got called “vile” on Twitter the other day, which in itself is nothing new – my fiercely pro-American, pro-freedom, anti-moron agenda is a constant source of outrage for the online world’s liberal fascist contingent. What was significant was the reason. I had shamelessly observed that young women who preferred not to have […] Read More →

Our Freedoms Are Slowly Slipping Away

Ken Blackwell,  As Americans celebrated Labor Day and the freedom to provide for their families, let’s hope they didn’t spoil the holiday yesterday by pausing to consider whether government today is making their lives easier or more difficult. To wit, the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom, published by the Wall Street Journal and the Heritage […] Read More →

Unschooling: the Future of Education?

Gracy Olmstead,  Ben Hewitt doesn’t send his boys to school—he doesn’t even own a curriculum. He’s an “unschooling” parent. Though the method has grown in popularity since educator John Holt introduced it in his books and theory, many Americans are still largely unaware of the term’s meaning or methodology. Hewitt explains and introduces the concept at Outside […] Read More →

Dr. Ben Carson: Forgetting the Meaning of Freedom

 Many people in this country were shocked when the U.S. Navy recently announced the removal of all Bibles from military hotels under their control. This was in response to pressure from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a well-known atheist group. The surprise is not the hypocritical stance of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, but rather […] Read More →
