  • RC's Traveling Historic Scroll makes International News

    In February of 2016, a generous benefactor bequeathed an Old Testament Scroll from circa 1750 to Ratio Christi. Our Vice President of Operations Michael Bossman travels to churches and universities with this portion of the Hebrew Torah as an example of historical evidence for Biblical accuracy. With an upcoming scroll appearance at the University of Mobile in Alabama in September 2016, the school's news digest published an article about the scroll. 

    This news was then picked up and covered in an article at Breaking Israel News, an online news magazine all the way in Israel which writes from a perspective complimentary to both Christian and Jewish worldviews. The scroll is described, including photos, and Bossman is quoted in both pieces.

  • Interview with RC President appears in Canadian Blog

    RC President Corey Miller and apologist/pastor Stephen Bedard talked apologetics together in May 2016. Bedard, who is the pastor at Queen St. Baptist Church in St. Catherines, Ontario, runs Hope's Reason Apologetics Blog and Hope's Reason Journal. Their discussion resulted in Bedard's Hope's Reason blog post, "The Need for Apologetics on the Secular College Campus," where Miller highlights the reasons for the importance of an apologetics ministry on campuses where there is intense opposition to the Christian worldview. Ratio Christi's outreach in Canada is growing thanks to partnering with people like Bedard who want to see apologetics thrive as a movement across church as well as campus, both in Canada and the U.S. 

  • RC Student at UC Berkeley Challenges Campus Liberals in School Newspaper

    Ratio Christi chapter member Hannah Rouley at the University of California - Berkeley wrote a challenge to campus liberals about today's academic intolerance toward the Christian worldview. "What It's Like to Identify as Conservative at UC Berkeley" was published by the school's newspaper, The Tab in April, 2016. The state of California and its two university systems, UC and Cal State U with their various campuses, can be considered the most liberal and secular-minded in the United States. Rouley calls attention to the lack of respect and shutting down of biblical and conservative viewpoints that ironically occurs in an environment that is supposed to be tolerant and diverse. Rouley has since published two other articles for the school paper handling delicate issues. 

  • RC International Director Op-Ed featured in 'One News Now' Online Magazine

    Executive Director of Ratio Christi International, John Stewart who is also an allied attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, discussed President Obama's Supreme Court nomination (following the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia) in a March 2016 op-ed for One News Now. Stewart's article, "Evangelicals MIA on Supreme Court," explored the concern that nominee Merrick Garland, if confirmed, would be the fourth Jewish justice on the bench with five Roman Catholics. Despite the large percentage of Protestants in the U.S. population, there would be no Protestant justice and thus a lack of presence of "evangelicals" on the highest court in the country. Stewart contends this demonstrates little concern on the part of the president for what "diversity" means outside of the current administration's liberal headset. 

  • RC President and College Prep Director Interviewed by National Personality Janet Mefferd

    RC's President/CEO Corey Miller, PhD, and our Director of College Prep Michael C. Sherrard, were each interviewed by nationally syndicated talk show host Janet Mefferd in early 2016. Mefferd's daily conservative program is heard on over 100 radio stations and streams on the internet. She often centers on the Christian faith as it intersects with politics and culture. Sherrard was interviewed on 1/20/16 about his book Relational Apologetics - a great starter book on how to use apologetics in conversations. Miller spoke with Mefferd about discrimination against Christian values and speech on campus due to the largely secular influence, and our newest outreach to professors, "RC Prof" which came out of his own discrimination experience as a professor. Both archived podcasts can be heard at "Janet Mefferd Today" by scrolling to the perspective dates. Sherrard is featured on the entire 1/20 program. Miller comes onto the 2/1 discussion at approximately the 25 minute mark.

  • Rutgers School Newspaper Interviews Ratio Christi-Trained Alumnus, Now Congressional Staffer

    The Rutgers University newspaper, Rutgers Today, ran a February 2016 "Success Story" interview catching up with one of their alumni, Isaac Wooward.

  • RC President Discusses Problem of College Campus "Microaggression" on Mickelson In the Morning

    What does the newly coined term "Microaggression" mean on college campuses? It is the administration-approved concept that students can complain about anything they think "offends" them at the expense of people who didn't intend to say or do anything truly "offensive." This can be the mere statement of an opinion that the "offended" student doesn't agree with, resulting in a knee-jerk reaction of punishment for the "offender" without proof of intent. RC President Corey Miller and guest host John Stewart speak to this on the streaming radio program, Mickelson in the Morning. Stewart begins this topic just after the 50-minute mark in this program. The link may require a minute to load.

  • RC Chapter at South Dakota State U is featured in School Newspaper

    Our RC chapter at South Dakota State University was featured in a very positive light in the school newspaper, The Collegian. The December 2, 2015 article accentuates RC's effort to reach all students on campus for discussions in our meetings on worldviews and to come to the truth about faith. This would draw more students toward the truth of Christ through the study of apologetics.The group's academic advisor, Dennis Helder, and student secretary are quoted in the article.
