    What We’re Learning from the Pledge Kids

    The American Humanist Association’s Don’t Say the Pledge campaign, which encourages a boycott of the Pledge of Allegiance until the “under God” wording is removed, has revealed a troubling phenomenon in American public schools, a common occurrence that would seem to reflect a dangerous tendency in the culture at-large.

    A Pastor Preached Too Loudly, and Neighbors Complained. Were His Rights Violated?

    Pastor Johnnie Clark was released from jail last Sunday morning, after serving nine days of his original fourteen-day sentence. His offence? Preaching in his own Christian church.
