Current pack of Democratic candidates seem downright Orwellian

Jonah Goldberg's recent piece, titled "Who Cares About National Unity?" (April 26, 2019, National Review) is the required reading of the week. In fact, dare I suggest, it should be a required reading of the year. Or at least required of every registered voter in the United States before he is allowed to cast his ballot in the next election. This truly is the kind of stuff that every adult who fancies himself a remotely informed voter must read, consider, digest and take to heart if we have any hope of continuing to be a free nation and a free people.

If Democrats can make up definitions, so can everyone else

In the April 23, 2019, edition of the NPR Update, Tom Gjelten posted a column he titled "How Would Jesus Vote?" In that column, Mr. Gjelten presents the South Bend, Indiana mayor, Pete Buttigieg, as a new kind of "Christian" politician a "married" homosexual who favors the eisegesis of inclusion, acceptance and tolerance rather than the exegesis of doctrine, dogma and clear definitions.

The original ‘trans-community’ is the story of Easter

Trans-gendered. Trans-abled. Trans-species. Trans-identity. It is hard to spend more than five minutes reading the daily news without being bombarded by stories about those who tell us of "transitioning" — stories of what has come to be called the "trans-community." Published April 21, 2019

Progressive tolerance and millennial love

It is time we face the facts. My industry — our country's educational establishment — has produced a nation of intellectual infants who are incapable of crawling out of their emotional cribs. Published April 7, 2019

Democratic Party politicians stand for nothing but themselves

If you had any doubt, you can clearly set it aside. It's now set in stone. The Democratic Party has officially become the anti-Constitution, anti-child, anti-capitalism, anti-Semitic, anti-black, anti-Hispanic, anti-Asian, anti-woman and anti-Christian party of American politics.

Words have definition, and definition matters

It has been said over and over again: Words mean something. They have definition and definition matters. As Aristotle chided, "How many a dispute could have been deflated into a single paragraph if the disputants had dared to define their terms." If we don't understand our words, their meaning can be manipulated and we often end up arguing for things that may be the exact opposite of our words' original intent. Published December 23, 2018

How evangelical capitulation equals the loss of religious freedom

This past week, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), two of the nation's foremost evangelical organizations, publicly announced they now support adding "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" as officially protected minority classifications to the ranks of federal nondiscrimination law.

Nebraska without Christmas

The Christmas season is upon us and once again, the headlines in the mainstream news are replete with stories of secular intolerance of Christ's mass. Leading this year's Festivus parade is Jennifer Sinclair, the principal of Nebraska's Manchester Elementary School who sent out a memo earlier this week to her faculty, staff, students and parents telling them that Santa Claus, Christmas trees, reindeer, the colors green and red, and even candy canes were considered offensive and would, therefore, be prohibited at her school.
