My Response to a Christian Who Believes Fighting the Moral Decay of Society is Useless

I was recently scanning my Facebook feed, and I saw that a friend had posted an article about the same-sex marriage ruling. My friend was pleased with the article, and said it was one of the best pieces he’d seen written on the issue. I clicked the link, and was appalled by what I read. The piece, by Ed Cyzewski, which currently has over 84,000 Facebook shares, claims that the same-sex marriage ruling isn’t where our focus should be as Christians. To truly obey Christ, he claims, we must focus Read more […]

Rape Culture Offends Men Too!

Rape culture isn’t just offensive to women; it’s offensive to men. The Merriam-Webster definition of “Rape” is “to force (someone) to have sex with you by using violence or the threat of violence.” Rape, by its very nature, is an act of aggression; it is an act in which one party aggressively steals power from another by sexual means. The victim of such an act of violence is never at fault, given the circumstances of the crime. It is the perpetrator who initiates the action, or without permission, Read more […]

Love, Tolerance, and Parenting a Duke University Pornstar

The biggest news story in America (this week) is that of the female Duke student who pays for her tuition by acting in porn videos using the name Belle Knox. Her father recently came back from a tour in Afghanistan as a doctor in the US Army and discovered the wonderful surprise that his daughter is a whore. Miss Knox’s sister-in-law (her brother’s wife) got in on the media action and said that Knox’s father and mother were devastated and disappointed, but that they still supported their daughter Read more […]

The FDA Is Paralyzed About Antibiotics And Conservatism Will Resurge

There were a bunch of big headlines yesterday alleging that the FDA was “doing something” about the impending antibiotics crisis. As Beth Hoffman observes at Forbes, the new “guidelines” probably won’t change much about how farms use antibiotics. But sadly, the new FDA “rules” announced Wednesday regarding antibiotic use on farm are a bit of a bait and switch. While the recommendations may “restrict antibiotic use” there is not much hope they will actually limit the quantity of Read more […]

Huffington Post Makes Case for “Morally Good” Abortions

Donna Schaper is the senior minister at Judson Memorial Church in New York. She wrote an article in Huff Post’s “Religion” section about the so-called moral argument for abortion. I’m sure Margaret Sanger would be in complete agreement with it. Of course, so would Stalin. Murderous tyrants always had their “moral arguments” for what they did to appease their consciences. Schaper kept referring to abortion as a medical procedure. She stated:  “Medical choices, like terminating a Read more […]

L.A. Teachers Have To Wear “Pro-Gay” Badges

Tolerance isn’t good enough for liberals anymore. Maybe it never was. If all you are is tolerant towards those whose lifestyles you find repulsive, that’s the same as being an outspoken bigot. In order for the liberals to be satisfied, you have to openly accept everyone else’s behavior that you may find objectionable. You have to, quite literally, wear it on your sleeve that you are one of their “allies.” This is what a Los Angeles school district is telling their teachers to do. Read more […]

A Lesson From Firefly: Abstinence Ethics Do Not Harm Rape Victims

With the escape of the three woman (and rape daughter) in Cleveland, Ohio, Elizabeth Smart has been back in the news and is being used to try to frame “traditional morality” with helping women get raped. Smart was also a woman who was abducted, held captive, and raped continuously. She has testified that abstinence education made her too ashamed to want to escape. She says that the instruction compared promiscuity to sharing chewing gum. “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m that chewed up piece of Read more […]

Planned Parenthood NYC Turf War: Are Promiscuous Teens Helped By Baby Scare Tactics?

Like a war between crime families, Planned Parenthood of New York City has launched an attack on the New York City Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services because of their teen pregnancy prevention campaign. Planned Parenthood’s motives aren’t hard to discern from the CNN story: “The city’s money would be better spent helping teens access health care, birth control, and high-quality sexual and reproductive health education, not on an ad campaign intended to create shock Read more […]

Voting To Steal Someone’s Money Highlights Evils Of Democracy

“I don’t care what the majority voted to do, they don’t have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it.” Thus spoke Peter Schiff on CNBC in a debate three weeks ago on raising taxes on only the wealthy. And if time is fair, this quote will become very famous the world over for its assertive though seemingly contrary moral stance and its appeal to our common sense. People who read that quote or heard Schiff say it will understand that social change through popular vote is Read more […]

Liberty and Morality Are At War and It’s Costing Conservatives Elections

In the past, I have had many conversations with members of the so called right wing conservative movement called the Tea Party. As much as I agree with what they support, I have come to the conclusion that they all missed a golden opportunity to participate in the larger battles being waged in American society during the election; the moral battles that shape our national conscience and draw distinct lines between conservative ideology and liberty’s accommodation. Our nation has been divided Read more […]
