VIDEO: Looking Back on 41 Years Since Roe v. Wade

Today, pro-life advocates will be participating in the 41st annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

Returning to a Culture of Life

It’s hard to think back to a time when the majority of the culture was as acutely aware of life inside the womb as it is now. Think about it this way: thanks to ultrasound technology, it’s commonplace to see pictures of preborn babies.

Marriage Still the Best Hope to Combat Poverty

Focus on the Family has long promoted an important truth: men, women and children do better when they are part of a family knit together by marriage.

Did You Know This About Seahawks’ Derrick Coleman?

Here in Colorado all eyes will be on Sunday’s AFC Championship game between our hometown Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots. But following that contest is another marquee matchup.

Sexual Purity in Men

Fred Stoeker was in the fifth grade when he saw his mom try to kill his dad. She stood behind him, scissors raised, ready to stab her husband – a serial adulterer – in the back. Fred’s dad was also addicted to pornography. And although Fred swore he’d never treat women the way his own father treated them … he eventually did.

3 Revealing Things About “Atheist Churches”

You might have seen some of the media coverage of so-called “atheist churches.” The concept started with two British comedians, Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans. Jones told the AP, “If you think about church, there's very little that's bad.
