An Interview On NBC's Today Show

At the beginning of the piece, Today Show host Scott Simon framed the issue this way: "Measure 9 would prohibit the state from facilitating or encouraging freedom of sexual preference."

ACLU's Agenda for Churches

The ACLU likes to come across as representing the interests of public citizens whose rights are supposedly violated when government or schools allow prayer, Bible reading or other free exercise of religion on their premises.

Training Our Children

The fact is that our children will not stand up and resist this tide unless they become men and women of character, courage and spiritual vitality. We are to pass on to them the baton that was handed us by a previous generation of Christians.

When Public Prayer Is Made Illegal

On Thursday May 7, 1992, I joined about 500 other citizens and taxpayers to pray on the lawn at City Hall in the city of Gresham, Oregon. It was the national day of prayer, declared so by our president. Organizers had gone through the right hoops, and the mayor of Gresham had granted permission for us to be there.

Two Sources of Self-Esteem: Secular & Christian

Everywhere in the secular media I’ve been hearing and reading about the critical problem of poor self-esteem among our young people. A bad self-image is being cited as the cause of teen suicide, drug abuse, crime and violence. Educators and community leaders are trying to find ways to help children bolster their self-esteem.
