Question to Trump: "Have You No Sense of Decency, Sir?"

Bernie Shine | November 28, 2015 | Entertainment

Do Words Kill? Is Political Rhetoric Inciting Christians to Violence?

BJ Gallagher | November 28, 2015 | Politics
In the aftermath of the recent shooting at Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, it's time we examine the role of words in our politics and in our society.

Peter Jan Honigsberg | November 28, 2015 | Politics
As we face a terrorist threat from a new source, now is the time for the American people to remind both President Obama and all the candidates for the next election to reject Guantanamo as an answer.

IMO, Person of the Year in Cuba

Yoani Sanchez | November 28, 2015 | World
Over the last 12 months Cuba was visited by a pope, a secretary of state and even by Mick Jagger. However, the person who takes all the palms is not a politician, a religious leader or a rocker. It is a mobile application with a short name and a profound impact on our reality: IMO.

William S. Becker | November 28, 2015 | Green
As President Obama flies to Paris for the latest international negotiation on climate change, diplomats on both sides of the Atlantic appear confused about what his position will be. Will he champion legally binding commitments by all nations to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions? Or will he agree only to deal with no legal force?
