Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

NEA and God: A Partnership In Denial

NEA and God: A Partnership In Denial

BY STEVE FARRELL Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 12 A little secret is out. Maybe you’ve heard? The enter stage left ‘let’s kick God and morality out of the classroom’ National Education Association was once a ‘wee’ bit more in God’s camp then they’d ever admit today. Witness the NEA’s 406 page, 1941, American [...]

God & Country in 1941: An NEA Coming Out Party

BY STEVE FARRELL Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 11 When I think of organizations that have worked long and hard to undermine the religious heritage of this great nation of ours – especially in the minds of our children – few can match the collective record of the National Education Association and the American Civil [...]

Is Grief an Evil?

Is Grief an Evil?

BY STEVE FARRELL Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 10 Is grief an evil? More to the point, is there something fundamentally wrong with you or me, or a family member, or the neighbor down the road, or the poor fellow across the ocean having an absolutely devastating day, week, month, year, decade or, perhaps, lifetime – as some of [...]

Tough Love—Farrell

Tough Love—Farrell

Steve Farrell BY STEVE FARRELL Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 9 A close friend of mine suffers from a common human malady – the inability to give tough love. Tough love, as most of us understand it, is having wisdom enough to withhold expected or demanded help from a friend or family member not because you fail to love them, [...]

Farrell: Men or Cattle?

Farrell: Men or Cattle?

Steve Farrell By Steve Farrell Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 8 There are basically two takes on homosexuality which have become the ruling dogma of the national political ‘churches’ left and right; they are: 1. We must have freedom of choice in matters of human sexuality, and 2. They (homosexuals) have no choice — God [...]

Red Eye On Marriage

Red Eye On Marriage

By Steve Farrell Missing the Mark with Religion, Part 7 As a child growing up in New York, I was attracted to the opposite sex. When I saw a pretty little girl flash a smile, my heart fluttered, my cheeks blushed, I shuffled my feet and shyly looked the other way. I always liked girls. No one had to tell me that I should. I just [...]

Moral License—Friend or Foe to Liberty?

Steve Farrell By Steve Farrell Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 6 Liberty and license are not synonymous. Parents know better. Too many of them have had the unfortunate dilemma of dealing with the “I am free to do as I please” child who routinely, or upon occasion, exercises that egocentric proclamation to reckless extremes.

Self-worship: The God of Democracy

By Steve Farrell Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 5 Not far removed from Marx’s elitist man-as-God theory (meaning, more particularly, Marx, or the ruling class, or the State, as God), of all the popular takes on religion in law in America that miss the mark none is more pervasive, none strike closer to the root, than the worship of [...]

Marx and the Worship of Man

Marx and the Worship of Man

Steve Farrell By Steve Farrell Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 4 Again I pose the same question, but with slight variation: Do religion and morality have a place in public policy, public law, and public education – or are they to be scorned, shunned, and silenced? Finding the answer to that question in lieu of the hot battle [...]

Not So Compassionate, Not So Conservative, Compassionate Conservatism

Not So Compassionate, Not So Conservative, Compassionate Conservatism

Steve Farrell by Steve Farrell Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 3 Things are not always as they seem. Marxism’s war on religion presents evidence-a-plenty that this notion is true. From both the left, in the name of Social Democracy, and from the right, in the name of Secular Government, Marx’s Atheistic teammates have [...]
