Ms. Dupuy’s question already answered - Larry Wayne McNorton

Homosexuality, according to God, is not natural and, therefore, cannot be innate in man. Man is not an evolved animal, but a special creation of God in His own image; created a little lower than the angels, and was crowned by God with glory and honor.

ROBINSON: Bookends of a presidency

The speech Obama gave in Cairo in 2009 and the address he gave at the United Nations on Wednesday can be seen as bookends. In the heady months after his election, Obama hoped to be remembered as the president who forged a new peace between the Western and Islamic worlds. Now, while not completely abandoning that hope, Obama says there first must be war against jihadist “killers” who understand no language but “the language of force.”

THOMAS: What Jack Ma can re-teach America

Jack Ma is the founder of the Chinese Internet retailer Alibaba. According to The New York Times, Alibaba is “the world’s largest Internet commerce company, with 231 million active buyers using its site, 11.3 billion annual orders and $296 billion in annual merchandise sales.”

ROBINSON: Obama may have to send troops

President Obama is adamant that the war against the Islamic State will not escalate to the use of U.S. ground troops. But the more I see and hear of his strategy, the more I fear that “mission creep” — even if the president resists it — is baked in from the start.

THOMAS: With Hillary, where is the substance?

Prior to his annual steak fry, retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) said this about Hillary Clinton to Dan Balz of The Washington Post: “…she is much more progressive in her thoughts and her inclination than most people may think.”

KRAUTHAMMER: Obama sounds uncertain trumpet once again

In his Islamic State speech, President Obama said many of the right things. Most importantly, he finally got the mission right: degrade and destroy the enemy. This alone will probably get him a bump in the polls, which have dropped to historic lows. But his strategic problem remains: the disconnect between (proclaimed) ends and means.

ROBINSON: What if Obama’s plan to take out ISIS doesn’t work?

President Obama has committed the United States to another open-ended Middle East war in which the potential for doing harm rivals the possibility of doing good.

THOMAS: The McDonnell verdict

The soap opera that played out in Richmond these last weeks and ended with the convictions of former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, on multiple counts of fraud and conspiracy charges is a tragedy for them, their children and the voters of Virginia.

ROBINSON: Our challenge with Islam

Political Islam cannot be bombed away. If it is not somehow allowed constructive expression, it will make itself heard, and felt, in more tragic ways.

THOMAS: ‘Finding Your Roots’ with Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.

A common humanity is what separates us from plants and animals. It should not separate us from each other.

THOMAS: Theater of the Absurd in Ferguson

It was in a college theater class that I learned about a genre called “Theater of the Absurd.” These were plays written mostly by European playwrights between the 1940s and 1960s, as well as a certain style that flowed from their work. What reminded me of this is now “playing” in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

ROBINSON: Our selective outrage

The killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown has rightly provoked widespread outrage, drawing international media attention and prompting a comment from President Obama. The same should be true — but tragically is not — of the killing of 3-year-old Knijah Amore Bibb.

THOMAS: Confronting ISIS: 'It takes an army to defeat an army'

When liberal Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and the conservative former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich agree on something, attention should be paid.

Reader encourages education on human trafficking issue

I read your article, “Putting brakes on human trafficking,” and wanted to contact you to thank you for writing it.

ROBINSON: What ‘war on whites’?

If there really were a “war on whites,” as a Republican congressman from Alabama ludicrously claims, it wouldn’t be going very well for the anti-white side.

THOMAS: People, not politicians improve world economies

After years of debt (90.6 percent of GDP in 2013) and deficit spending, Britain’s ruling Conservative Party is crowing about the latest economic figures that show the country has outpaced the developed world in its economic recovery. Reuters reports that the International Monetary Fund recently upgraded Britain’s projected economic growth this year to 3.2 percent, leading “the world’s big rich economies.”
