Born in the USA. Educated, lacking for nothing — so what possibly went wrong? How did these American Muslims come to “misunderstand” Islam in the exact same way as millions of other devout Muslims across the world? Downright mystifying. It’s a brain twister, all right. “Judge imposes maximum 15-year prison sentences for Alabama-hatched terrorism p…

In his new book, ”A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Funeral or a Future?” Driscoll says we live in a “post-Christian culture — a culture fundamentally at odds with faith in Jesus.” Driscoll believes that culture is changing and church attendance has dropped due to the lack of social benefits that the church offers, leading him to question the future of Christianity.

Would You Believe the U.S. State Dept Is Ready to Let Russia Build These on American Soil?

The CIA and Pentagon have been trying to halt a State Department plan to let Russia’s space agency (Roscosmos) construct within the United States a handful of monitor stations, according to American officials, the New York Times reported.

That was just the parting zinger, though. Clinton had plenty more to say at #CAP10, and she managed to fit it in 10 minutes.

Student destroys 9/11 memorial ‘to start a dialogue about American imperialism’

A lot of angry people are wondering exactly who was among the group that pulled nearly 3,000 American flags from the ground on the campus of Middlebury College in Vermont Wednesday.

This photo, posted to Facebook by Young Americans for Freedom, reportedly shows a student and accomplices stuffing the uprooted flags into plastic trash bags.
