Not-So-Satanic Values

Joseph Laycock in an op-ed wonders if Satanists can affect political change in society. Things just keep getting stranger and stranger. The Temple of Satan has made its fame by taking advantage of religious freedom laws to pass out Satanist coloring books and erect a giant statue glorifying Satan along side the 10 commandments. Laycock investigated the Temple of Satan: Since its founding, TST has waged a highly active campaign to demand greater separation between … Continue reading

The New American Fascism

I don’t know if Bill Whittle is a Christian or not, but he is a clear thinker and able communicator. In this short video (about 7 minutes), he demonstrates how Progressives today are simply following the roadmap and tactics of fascists in pre-WW2 Germany, Mao Tse-tung’s China, and Joseph Stalin’s Russia.

A Big Plan for a Small Planet: The Humbug Manifesto 2000

(This originally appeared in the Winter 2000 edition of the MCOI Journal) By Sarah Flashing & Joy A. Veinot Many people faced the new Millennium with a sense of dread and apprehension. What would happen to the world in our new century? War? Famine? Economic collapse? Armageddon? We have now survived Y2K, so perhaps millennial fever will cool down for a time.

Creation vs. Evolution: The War of the Worldviews

by Dave Johnson (This originally appeared in the November/December 1998 edition of the MCOI Journal, starting on page 6) There are those who think that the debate over origins is just so much petty bickering among academics. They could not be more wrong. The creation/ evolution controversy is, in reality, a war between two fundamentally different and opposing worldviews.
