Last week, four young blacks -- two males, both 18 years old; and two females, 18 and 24 years-old -- kidnapped a mentally disabled 18-year-old white boy and tortured him for 24 hours. Among other things, they kicked him, beat him, cut his scalp, made him drink from the toilet and made him kiss the floor while saying he loves black people. ...Read more
Where I live (near Los Angeles) you can drive for blocks without seeing a single home with Christmas lights, let alone a manger scene or some other religious decoration. And you can drive miles and see fewer than a dozen.
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in an area where most residents were either Italian or Jewish. So many homes had ...Read more
My last column was titled "Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?" After reading reactions throughout the internet, I realize how important it is to elaborate on the subject of how men view women.
One of the proofs that higher education makes those who attend college more foolish, more naive and often even more ignorant about life than those who never ...Read more

A highly respected American rabbi named Dr. Irving "Yitz" Greenberg used to tell American Jewish audiences, whether Reform, Conservative Orthodox, "I don't care what denomination you're a member of, as long as you're ashamed of it."

The Hidden Puzzle in MarriageSamuel Adjeipong
This book provides the original details of the intent and thoughts of the Almighty God as He set out in the Garden of Eden to initiate His concept of marriage. It captures the various steps He took and delves into these steps to reveal how it relates to marriage.
It is very hard to publicly affirm a position for nearly a year and to then, at the last minute, change one's mind.
Nevertheless, even as late as Election Day itself, I wish to address those conservatives and Republicans who have declared themselves Never-Trumpers.
