I have personally grown deeply tired of the same lie being repeated over and over again by apologists for Islam and the Islamic world: That Islam is a religion of peace. Not only is this a lie but it is an absurdity as vast as the claim that the earth is flat or that the sun orbits the earth. How can anyone with a straight face assert that Islam is a “religion of peace”? One need only look at the current global situation to see otherwise.

There is a pattern one finds in the growth of religions that is unmistakable and it goes like this: at some point a man comes along (it’s always a man, women who have serious work to do...
Yesterday I met with Governor Sam Brownback of Kansas. Well… Adam Brown, Cole Morgan, Fred Heeren, Michaelyn Everhart and I. We met at my apartment complex and piled into Adam’s car and headed for Topeka, KS. We were all a bit nervous and were trying to figure out what to say, how to say it, and whether or not certain issues should even be raised. We decided on Abortion, Science Education, and giving atheists a seat “at the table”.
