Articles:

Start using ‘Allah’ instead of God? - Kathleen Parker

It was bound to happen — and it seems fitting that a cleric named Tiny would think of it.  Read more...

Sunny Portraits - John R. Dunlap

During the first six weeks of the summer break, I teach a course in general linguistics, an annual routine ordinarily performed in one of the older campus buildings. This year the routine was broken by an unusual classroom assignment.  Read more...

Supreme Court Supplants Parents - Daniel Cere

With this month's ruling, the judges of the Supreme Court of Canada placed themselves between parents and their children and sided with those pressing for the inclusion of gay-parenting literature. The decision clearly signaled that the role of parents as primary moral guides for their children's education is now "subject to judicial review" by our nine lords of the law.  Read more...

Ten Conservative Principles - Russell Kirk

It is not possible to draw up a neat catalogue of conservatives' convictions; nevertheless, I offer you, summarily, ten general principles; it seems safe to say that most conservatives would subscribe to most of these maxims.  Read more...

Ten suggestions - David Warren

Because I am a bit of an anomaly in the Canadian "mainstream media" -- because I am, to put no finer point upon it, not only rather conservative in my political outlook, but what is called a "social conservative"; and as one of my critics once patiently explained, "not just conservative, but Christian; and not just Christian, but Catholic" -- because of this I get many e-mails.  Read more...

Thank God America Isn't Like Europe — Yet - Charles Murray

Do we want the United States to be like Europe?  Read more...

Thanksgiving - Father Kenneth Baker, S.J.

Thanksgiving Day, on the fourth Thursday in November, is a major event in American culture and life.    Read more...

The angry atheist - Rex Murphy

When atheists wail for a chaplain, when they lament their status vis-á-vis Buddhists, Muslims, Jews and Christians, we have a group athirst for what they otherwise proclaim they despise.  Read more...

The Awkwardness of Advent - Father George W. Rutler

The star that Jean-Paul Sartre once was, doyen of his day's incompletely educated intellectuals, has not quietly faded the way splashy names often do in the generation after they die.   Read more...

The banality of evil - Father George W. Rutler

"The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil."  Read more...

The Barbarians at the Gates of Paris - Theodore Dalrymple

Everyone knows la douce France: the France of wonderful food and wine, beautiful landscapes, splendid châteaux and cathedrals. More tourists (60 million a year) visit France than any country in the world by far.  Read more...

The Barbarians Inside Britain's Gates - Theodore Dalrymple

The youth of Britain have long placed a de facto curfew on the old, who in most places would no more think of venturing forth after dark than would peasants in Bram Stoker's Transylvania.   Read more...

The Big Rock Candy Nation - Anthony Esolen

As I write, several thousand young people are squatting near Wall Street, insisting upon some kind of change or other.   Read more...

The bomb is just the beginning - George Jonas

A friend once asked George Faludy how terror worked.   Read more...

The Book of James - Joseph Loconte

A century ago, the psychologist, philosopher, and agnostic William James delivered the prestigious Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh. His 20 addresses were published in 1902 as The Varieties of Religious Experience, which soon became one of the most widely read works on religious belief by an American.  Read more...

The Boston bombings and their aftermath - Archbishop Charles J. Chaput

We shouldn’t waste time being shocked or baffled by the evil in the world. It has familiar roots. It begins in the little crevices of each human heart — especially our own.  Read more...

The Challenge Of Secularism - Christopher Dawson

It is no accident that the introduction of universal compulsory state education has coincided in time and place with the secularization of modern culture.  Read more...

The Challenge of Secularism - Christopher Dawson

We are still living internally on the capital of the past and externally on the existence of a vague atmosphere of religious tolerance which has already lost its justification in contemporary secular ideology. It is a precarious situation, which cannot be expected to endure indefinitely and we ought to make the most of it while it lasts.  Read more...

The Church as Culture - Robert Louis Wilken

If Christ is culture, let the sidewalks be lit with fire on Easter Eve, let traffic stop for a column of Christians waving palm branches on a spring morning, let streets be blocked off as the faithful gather for a Corpus Christi procession. Then will others know that there is another city in their midst, another commonwealth, one that has its face, like the faces of angels, turned toward the face of God.  Read more...

The Clash - Fouad Ajami

It would have been unlike Samuel P. Huntington to say “I told you so” after 9/11.   Read more...

The Conservative Convert - Eric Scheske

Terse Kirk. That’s one way to describe Russell Kirk, the literary critic and father of modern conservatism. He was the author of over thirty books and hundreds of articles, the founder of two quarterlies, and a busy speaker. But he was laconic when it came to his religion.  Read more...

The Corrosive Power of Euphemisms - C. Ben Mitchell

Words are powerful tools. They can be used as a shield or a weapon. They have incited revolutions, shaped nations, and thrilled readers. They are the stuff of which most human communication is made. Nowhere is this more evident than in the latest development in human cloning and embryonic stem-cell research.  Read more...

The Cruelty of Hedonism - Anthony Esolen

A hectic competition lies at the heart of the hedonist’s life.   Read more...

The Culture of Charity - Arthur C. Brooks

Approximately three-quarters of Americans give their time and money to various charities, churches, and causes; the other quarter of the population does not. Why has America split into two nations: givers and non-givers? Arthur Brooks has spent years researching this trend, and even he was surprised by what he found.  Read more...

The danger of self-indulgence - David Warren

Let us start as grimly as possible in the present: with my conviction that things do not look very promising for our civilization.   Read more...
