The Interview: Paine’s Christianity, Part 2

The Interview: Paine’s Christianity, Part 2

BY STEVE FARRELL Thomas Paine Was founder Thomas Paine ever a Christian, and ever anything other than a man who shouted the Bible down as "Fraud!" Most of Paine's backers and critics enthusiastically cry "No!" To hear it from them, Paine was at once, a Deist, a Theosophist, a Secular Humanist, an Infidel, an Atheist, a Positive Atheist, [...]

Paine’s Christianity

BY STEVE FARRELL Paine's Christianity: Part 1 Of all the attempts to affix to the Founding Father's the faithless brand, "non-Christian secularist," the only Founder who appears to deserve such a burning indictment is Thomas Paine. After all, Tom Paine was responsible for that infamous shadowboxing match with the Bible called The Age of [...]

What Dickens’ “Scrooge” Should Teach Us

What Dickens’ “Scrooge” Should Teach Us

BY STEVE FARRELL A cynical conservative magazine I used to subscribe to did the most irritating thing come every Christmas. They would go out of their way to destroy – no, annihilate – my family’s and perhaps your family’s favorite Christmas story, Charles Dickens’ classic work, “A Christmas Carol.” When Dickens’ Scrooge [...]

Author of Liberty or Not?

Author of Liberty or Not?

LIBERTY LETTERS WITH STEVE FARRELL Is God the author of liberty, or not? A valid, and need I say, vital question. But in this age of secularism, humanism, and socialism, just try mixing God and government in the same breath and get ready for the snickers, sneers, hisses, and guffaws for daring to exercise one’s free speech as regards [...]

God and Washington

God and Washington

THEY WERE BELIEVERS WITH STEVE FARRELL George Washington, perhaps more than any other Founder, saw the hand of God everywhere. It never fails. Write a column in defense of the religious foundations of the United States (my article "Paine's Prophetic Dream Interpreted") and out of the woodwork come all manner of denunciations. One letter, [...]

Great Pillars of American Liberty

Great Pillars of American Liberty

LIBERTY LETTERS WITH STEVE FARRELL Not long ago, I watched a noted atheist - an ACLU member - venomously attacked American Christians for daring to stand up for what they called the right of their children to have access to the truth in the classroom about America's unique founding, a founding centered not just on the triumph of reason, as some [...]

John Adams: Party of One—Man of God

LIBERTY LETTERS WITH STEVE FARRELL Editor's Note: This book review was previously published in 2005 at NewsMax.com and elsewhere on the Net. It wasn't too many months ago when David McCullough won a Pulitzer for his biography on John Adams. And so maybe it wasn't the best of timing that on McCullough's prize winning heels – hot off the [...]
