  • Better a Competent Turk?

    I’ve heard more than one Christian friend say he or she was not going to vote for president this time around because both major candidates were so unworthy, in one way or another. I understand those feelings. But I’m also recalling what Chuck Colson—who, remember, worked in the White House for a president who will always be known for a certain amount of corruption—said about this.

    To Chuck, staying home on Election Day was not an option. In this BreakPoint commentary from 1998, Chuck said, “In the Old Testament, God appointed leaders. But in modern democracies, we elect them.”
  • Why I Love Atheists

    Last week I wrote a post Three Reasons I am Not an Atheist. For this post I am going to take a different route: rather than critique atheism as a worldview, I am going to discuss why I love atheists as people. So, I am shifting from talking about the idea of atheism to the people who embrace it.

  • From 'Gender Trouble' to Gender-Neutral Cats

    For anyone who wants to understand where modern ideas about gender fluidity came from, and how they got to be so popular, this New York Magazine interview with Judith Butler is important reading. Butler teaches at Berkeley and is the author of "Gender Trouble," the book that revolutionized thinking on gender. Interviewer Molly Fischer writes:
  • 'Don't Call Them That'

    In a day and age in which we obsess over making sure every group and sub-group gets exactly the names, labels, nicknames, and pronouns it wants, it's very interesting that leftists insist on denying pro-lifers the name we've chosen for ourselves.READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • 22 Too Many

    My friend Keri Jacobs co-founded a ministry called 22 Too Many. The ministry’s name serves as a reminder that, tragically, every day, 22 military veterans take their own lives.

    As Keri noted on the group's Facebook page, yesterday was Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Day. This week, please remember to pray, not only for the safety of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines serving around the world, but also for their safety when they get home, suffering from PTSD. You can read some of their stories, and find out more in general, at the group's website.READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • ADF on Supreme Court Decision in Stormans v. Wiesman

    I posted earlier about the Supreme Court deciding against taking up the case on pharmicists' conscience rights. Alliance Defending Freedom now has more material on their site about the decision. Senior Counsel Kristen Waggoner says: "All Americans should be free to peacefully live and work consistent with their faith without fear of unjust punishment, and no one should be forced to participate in the taking of human life. We had hoped that the U.S. Supreme Court would take this opportunity to reaffirm these long-held principles. The state of Washington allows pharmacists to refer customers for just about any reason—except reasons of conscience. Singling out people of faith and denying them the same freedom to refer is a violation of federal law." READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • Snopes and the Politicization of Facts

    Online "fact-checkers" are notoriously slanted. Most of us don't take their claims to objectivity that seriously. But reading on controversial political topics is irresistably funny. Confronted with a demonstrable fact that's inconvenient for the far left, Snopes will reluctantly rate it "mostly true," or "mixed," and then follow up with an editorial on why that fact doesn't mean what you think it does.

    By way of example, the Snopes entry on Orlando shooter Omar Mateen's political affiliation rates the claim that "Mateen was a registered Democrat" as a "mixture" of truth and falsehood. How, you ask, can a simple "yes" or "no" question ("was Mateen registered as a Democrat?") possibly yield a "mixed" answer? That's where the magic comes in, baby.
  • Breaking: Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Abortion Law

    The Court ruled 5-3 that the law, which required that Texas abortion clinics be held to stricter medical standards, would make it too difficult to obtain an abortion. The Stream has the story.

    Somehow this decision to lower standards is supposed to be good for women's health. Don't ask me how.READ FULL ARTICLE »
