With all the public discussion about whether values voters would vote in the 2006 election or stay home, the underlying and still unanswered question is, what is the role of government in defining our culture?

A year after attempting to capitalize on the Terri Schiavo case, Response Unlimited's Philip Zodhiates has taken to peddling anti-Semitic mail lists to conservative groups.

Same-sex marriage is not the only goal of the gay rights movement. It's becoming clear that another goal is the suppression of Americans' First Amendment right to criticize the gay agenda. The gay lobby tried a broadside attempt to censor criticism by passing a national "hate crimes" law.

No one told Salamatou Adamou about the “birth dearth.” A midwife and widow in the drought-stricken African country of Niger, she had already given birth to 12 children by the age of 37. “I am exhausted,” she said as she struggled through labor with child number 13. Her large family is not all that unusual in Niger, which has the highest birth rate in the world--eight children for every woman.            As E – The Environmental ... [full story]

Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber’s new book,“The Best War Ever, exposes failed propaganda efforts by the Bush Administration In a recent speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld declared that, "The enemy is so much better at communicating. I wish we were better at countering that because the constant drumbeat of things they say -- all of which are not true -- is harmful."During a question-and-answer session at Fallon Naval Air ...

Jay Hein, an experienced conservative think tanker, will also be deputy assistant to the president The appointment of Jay Hein, a relatively unknown right-wing think tanker, to head the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives may be a sign that the George W. Bush administration has just about thrown in the towel on promoting what was supposed to be -- when announced in January 2001 -- the centerpiece of the president's domestic policy ... [full story]

If you've never been addicted, this may surprise you: Getting into treatment for an alcohol, drug or gambling addiction is often a frightening experience. You're afraid of change, scared to live without your habit, questioning whether you deserve success because people have beaten you down about your failings.

College students returning to campus find a familiar scene:  closet-size dorm rooms, frat parties, and questionable food in the school cafeteria.  But on some campuses something is missing this year: men’s sports teams. Students returning to Rutgers University will find that over the summer the university cut six teams:  men’s heavyweight and lightweight crew, men’s and women’s fencing, men’s swimming and men’s tennis.  Why did men’s athletics take the brunt of what university officials characterize ...
