Christian schools poised for persecution

The Association of Christian Schools International just surveyed 730 faith-based facilities about their COVID-19 responses and found that "the vast majority of Christian schools delivered on their promise to reopen in person [this fall] and to do so safely and comprehensively."

Virginia COVID-19 shutdown is a total farce

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam just issued new coronavirus-tied restrictions that include curfews, tighter mask mandates and more restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings -- supposedly because science tells him this is the right thing to do for citizens' safety.

In America, the default is individual freedom, not government dole-outs

The government, on COVID-19, has gone amok; on that, there is no question. But a question that does arise is this: Who's in charge here, anyway? It's supposed to be the people. COVID-19 has made it the government. And American citizens need to fight, fight, fight on this point or forever cede the notion of rights coming from God. Published December 8, 2020

This country is rapidly being split into believers versus non-believers.
