Sandra Fluke, fascist

I’ve been stewing this past week over Sandra Fluke’s insistence that people who are morally opposed to abortion, birth control or sterilization pay for it. That’s what this is about. It isn’t about “women’s health.” It’s about imposing her views on those who oppose it. In a sideshow before Democrats in Congress, Fluke complained that […]

What's your religious freedom worth?

According to dumb-as-a-box California Sen. Barbara Boxer and Osama bin Laden is popular because he provides daycare Washington Sen. Patty Murray, your religious freedom is worth something less than $50 a month. Why the Birth-Control Mandate Makes Sense It can cost $600 a year for prescription contraceptives. That’s a lot of money. So, your freedom […]

We here at Hoystory are all about answering the big questions. So, God: Democrat or Republican? This would tend to provide evidence that it’s the latter.

Obama’s war on religion and conscience

President Obama and his administration haven’t been particularly understanding of religious beliefs—especially if they are in any way Christian and depart from any tenet of modern-day liberalism. The first evidence of this was the case of Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The case involved a private school teacher whom […]

So, it looks like Iran is continuing its stellar human-rights record by planning on executing a Christian for apostasy. As early as this week, the British-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports, Iran may execute Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani for refusing to recant his Christian faith. As my colleague Paul Marshall recently wrote, evangelical Pastor Nadarkhani was sentenced […]

Timothy Dalrymple over at Patheos has an excellent post on the political/religious debate over government spending and the role of religious faith in public policy. One of the great difficulties of this issue, for Christians, is that the morality of spending and debt has been so thoroughly demagogued that it’s impossible to advocate cuts in […]

Same sex marriage vs. religious freedom

The same-sex “marriage” debate is not about equal rights for homosexuals, it’s about an anti-religion crusade designed to eventually treat believers in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions as pariahs, their beliefs not respected and certainly not allowed in polite society. It’s a point I’ve been making for years. In the wake of New York’s […]

Fisking militant atheism

John Weidner over at Random Jottings has an excellent takedown of a piece in Sunday’s Washington Post lamenting the fact that in-your-face atheists aren’t exactly popular in America. Read it.

Yes, it makes your butt look big

There’s an interesting series of posts over at The Public Discourse on Lila Rose’s Live Action undercover stings of Planned Parenthood clinics in New York, New Jersey and Virginia. Professor Christopher O. Tollefson makes the case that Live Action was wrong because they deceived Planned Parenthood employees in that they weren’t actually keeping 13- and […]

Hoystory goes to the theatre

Just got back from the Cal Poly Performing Arts Center and saw the traveling version of the Tony Award-winning musical “Spring Awakening.” The musical is based on the 1891 play by Frank Wedekind—which was understandably banned in Germany at the time. Based upon the musical, I’d be a little surprised if the play was performed […]
