Scriptures make it clear that nations can morally forfeit the right to maintain sovereign control over their own territory through savagery, superstition, and sexual debauchery. When a nation indulges in such practices long enough, God intervenes in judgment, usually by bringing stronger nations in to transfer control of the land through conquest.

After betraying the party’s platform twice this week, Congressional Republicans had the audacity to wildly celebrate a pyrrhic victory, proving we are a party of principle no longer. In 1984, as a 13-year-old boy, I fell in love with the message of Ronald Reagan. He spoke to my heart about liberty, limited government, and personal responsibility. […]

It’s time for conservative lawmakers – at the state and federal level – to not just talk conservatively in order to be elected, but to govern conservatively.
