As Alaskans join Americans across the country in setting aside a day to honor the work and vision of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is important to remember that he was a pastor formed and motivated by deep Judeo-Christian beliefs. King’s first principles were not found in the material, social or political realms. His vision came from a fundamental view that God has created mankind, and that we are most at peace when we...

The gatherings are not about shouting down an opponent or brandishing rhetorical swords. Rather, the goal is to foster...

Since then, more than 65 million unborn babies have been legally killed in the U.S. Planned Parenthood, which provides...

While many elected officials are preparing for the pivotal challenge of Alaska Legislature to address the state’s mounting fiscal crisis, Sen. Elvi Gray-Jackson, an Anchorage Democrat, wants to set aside time to convince colleagues that celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month is an integral part of being an Alaskan. Her Senate Bill 147 would permanently establish June as LGBTQ Pride Month. Prefiled on Jan. 17, the legislation looks to celebrate Alaska’s “vibrant cultural diversity” and to “dismiss...

For Alaskans who wish to do more home improvements in 2020 without funneling money to a massive corporation that supports abortion and same-sex “marriage,” there are options. According to 2ndVote, a national watchdog group that monitors the philanthropy of major corporations, Home Depot scores poorly when it comes issues like abortion, same-sex “marriage” and religious liberty. Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that performs poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and...

Abortion activists in Juneau are hosting their annual LunaFest film festival in an effort to raise funds to promote abortion across Alaska. The event also aims to celebrate the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion across the nation – leading to more than 61 million deaths of unborn babies over the past 46 years. The annual event is hosted by the Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition, an activist group that tries to...

Alaska’s population dropped by an estimated 3,594 people last year according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s estimates released on Dec. 31. Alaska’s declining population comes from a combination of fewer births, increasing deaths and net migration losses. This trend is playing out all across the country. Between 2018 and 2019 Alaska saw an estimated 10,031 births, 4,819 deaths and a loss of 8,823 people due to migration. Alaska’s total population is now estimated at 731,545....

After 46 years, countless laws and vigilant prayers, abortion is still performed in Alaska and across most of the United States. On Thursday, Jan. 9, former U.S. Senate candidate and past president of Alaska Right to Life – Bob Bird – will deliver a presentation on “The Proper Constitutional Understandings of Abortion at both State & Federal Levels.” Bird will look at why abortion is still considered the law of the land – both in...
