The Formal End to Judeo-Christian America

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on the redefinition of marriage seals the end of America as the Founders envisioned it.

From well before 1776 until the second half of the 20th century, the moral values of the United States were rooted in the Bible and its God.

Unlike Europe, which defined itself as exclusively Christian, America became the ...Read more

Religious Talk: Blacks Should Forgive America

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

In an expression of extraordinary magnanimity, relatives of the black church members murdered in Charleston, S.C., arose one after the other to tell Dylann Roof, the murderer of their loved ones, that they forgive him.

That I do not agree with what they did in no way diminishes my ability to be moved by their gesture.

But I do not agree with ...Read more

More Ways the Right is Better Than the Left

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Here's a difference between Left and Right that is rarely noted despite the fact that it is at least as important as any other and even explains many of the other differences.

At the core of left-wing thought is a rejection of painful realities, the rejection of what the French call les faits de la vie : the facts of life. Conservatives...Read more

The Practical Right vs. The Touchy-Feely Left

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

A fundamental difference between the left and right concerns how each assesses public policies. The right asks, "Does it do good?" The left asks a different question.

One example is the minimum wage. In 1987, The New York Times editorialized against any minimum wage. The title of the editorial said it all -- "The Right Minimum Wage: $0.00."

The Virtuous Right vs. The Namby-Pamby Left

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The difference between Right and Left addressed in this column concerns a fundamentally different method that each utilizes in order to improve society.

Conservatives believe that the way to a better world is almost always through moral improvement of the individual -- by each person doing battle with his own moral defects. It is true that in ...Read more

Why The Right Is Morally Superior to The Left

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Most Americans hold either liberal or conservative positions on most matters. In many instances, however, they would be hard pressed to explain their position or the position they oppose.

But if you can't explain both sides, how do you know you're right?

At the very least, you need to understand both the liberal and conservative positions in ...Read more

Why Pamela Geller Is Hated

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Pamela Geller -- the woman whose group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, organized the Muhammad cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas -- may be the most hated person in America right now. She is certainly the left's chief villain. And, sad to say, though few conservatives hate her, more than a few have condemned her.

The question ...Read more

Justifying the Use of The 'T' Word

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Two months ago, The New York Times published an op-ed piece by a professor of philosophy titled, "Why Our Children Don't Think There Are Moral Facts."

This is how the professor began his piece:

"What would you say if you found out that our public schools were teaching children that it is not true that it's wrong to kill people for fun or cheat...Read more

Why Is Pakistan More Legitimate than Israel?

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Whenever I have received a call from a listener to my radio show challenging Israel's legitimacy, I have asked these people if they ever called a radio show to challenge any other country's legitimacy. In particular, I ask, have they ever questioned the legitimacy of Pakistan?

The answer, of course, is always "no." In fact, no caller ever ...Read more

Black Murderers Matter

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The "Black Lives Matter" campaign is based on as big a lie as the "campus rape culture" lie; the Rolling Stone magazine gang rape at the University of Virginia fraternity lie; the gang rape by the Duke University lacrosse team lie; the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" Ferguson lie; and all the other lies that animate leftist hysterias.

Hillary Fanatics Little Concerned With Her Mendacity

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Hillary Clinton has announced that she is running for president of the United States. What her likely nomination says about the Democratic Party and tens of millions of Americans is depressing.

Other than Barack Obama -- whose resume consisted of being a charismatic black -- it is hard to come up with a less accomplished individual who has run ...Read more

Without Christianity, America's Decay Is Speeding Up

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

As one who loves America -- not only because I am American, but even more so because I know (not believe, know) that the American experiment in forming a decent society has been the most successful in history -- I write the following words in sadness: With few exceptions, every aspect of American life is in decline.

"Decay" is the word.
