Why do so many liberals despise Christianity?

Oct 10, 2014 by

by Damon Linker, The Week: Liberals increasingly want to enforce a comprehensive, uniformly secular vision of the human good. And they see alternative visions of the good as increasingly intolerable. Liberalism seems to have an irrational animus against Christianity. Consider these two storieshighlighted in the last week by conservative Christian blogger Rod Dreher.

European “Humanists”: embarrassment or silent sympathy with Dawkins’ attack on disabled persons?...

Sep 5, 2014 by

By J C von Krempach, JD, Turtle Bay & Beyond: Following the world-wide astonishment and outrage over British “humanist” Richard Dawkins’ rant that mothers giving birth to children who have been diagnosed with Down Syndrome are acting “immorally”, we are surprised to find that neither the British Humanist Association (BHA), nor the European Humanist Federation (EHF), nor the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) have found it necessary to clarify whether they agree or disagree...

It’s not monotheism that’s the problem. It’s Matthew Parris

Jun 28, 2014 by

On the other, Ofsted say they discovered in some schools evidence of...
