Bill O'Reilly believes that "traditional" America is dead. Maybe he's right. Maybe the positions taken by Obama supporters this election season aren't "traditional positions." But here's a question, Bill: Just how far back do you want to set the clock to "traditional" America?
Our theology is both a faith statement and a process of reflection. Our faith teaches us that we can expect to continue to be inspired, to learn from one another, and to seek out that spiritual growth.
The Zionist experiment has emerged -- quietly and vibrantly -- as a clear demonstration of the power of progressive values. Let's stand with those who continue to uphold our deepest principles, even in the face of the most belligerent anti-liberal provocations.
As President Obama signaled renewed interest this week in a "diplomatic resolution to the problem" with Iran, liberal advocates of soft regime change are again coming out of the woodwork to profess their support for engaging Tehran.
There is an oft-repeated cry from certain corners of the creative community lamenting the lack of political theater on our stages. Yet I seriously doubt that the Republican Theater Festival is what they had in mind.
