The Origins of the Christian Fish Symbol

By: Brandon T. Ward

The Senate gave final approval by unanimous consent late last night to the measure that authorizes — but doesn’t require — providing lethal assistance to Ukraine’s military as well as sweeping sanctions on Russia’s energy sector. Those steps go beyond what the White House and European Union have been willing to do so far.
