Cancel Culture has become Cancer Culture

Cancel Culture has become Cancer Culture

Every day seems to bring new examples in the news of our cancel culture. Cancel culture is a cancer to our culture. The examples border on the ridiculous: • Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller “Psycho” is sexist. • The Muppets require a disclaimer from Disney. • Dr. Seuss, the famous children’s author, becomes radioactive for reportedly having engaged in racist drawings. • Mr. Potato Head is sexist. • Di [...]

Will California Mandate Pagan Worship in Schools?

Will California Mandate Pagan Worship in Schools?

In California schools, it would seem that Jesus is out, but worshiping human-sacrifice-requiring Aztec deities may soon be in. In a 1996 book I wrote with D. James Kennedy, The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail, which dealt with today’s anti-Christian bias, we noted the following: “San Jose, California. City officials built a statue of the Aztec god, Quetzalcoatl, costing taxpayers half a million do [...]

Has the National Motto Changed?

Has the National Motto Changed?

Is recognition of God in the public arena today just a meaningless construct? It reminds me of politicians swearing in on a Holy Bible but not having the slightest clue what the Good Book says. If you asked the average American today, “What is the national motto of America?” I doubt that many of them would answer correctly. Of course, the answer is, “In God We Trust.” And it has been as such since [...]

Spending our Grandchildren's Future

Spending our Grandchildren's Future

Ronald Reagan once observed, “Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.” I thought of that quote when I read some of the details of the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill that is touted as “COVID relief.” Critics, like Congressman Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana), say that it’s a “liberal wish list.” Scalise is not alone. Many Re [...]

George Washington Warned Us

George Washington Warned Us

Maybe it’s just me, but I am starting to come to the conclusion that Nancy Pelosi just doesn’t like former President Donald Trump. She seems to have been the driving force behind Trump Impeachment II. Jeff Charles of Red State calls it “the Democrats’ new production of ‘An Impeachment Story Part II: Maybe It’ll Work This Time.’” Impeachment is a Constitutional provision potentially to remove a sit [...]

Dictator-in-Chief: Biden's Excessive Executive Orders

Dictator-in-Chief: Biden's Excessive Executive Orders

Within his first two weeks in office, President Biden has signed an unprecedented number of executive orders—47. Writing for Quartz, Amanda Shendruk notes, “ Joe Biden has been US president for less than two weeks and has already issued nearly as many executive actions as Trump and Obama did in the same period, combined.” [Emphasis hers] These include: • “Memorandum on Protecting Women’s Health a [...]

Won't Know Much about History

Won't Know Much about History

The old song said, “Don’t Know Much About History.” But if Joe Biden gets his way, we could revise the title to “Won’t Know Much About History.” One of the last things outgoing-President Trump did was to sign an executive order on the 1776 Commission. It is geared toward teaching American school children about America’s true source of greatness. Yet one of the first things incoming-President Biden [...]

You Can't Apply What You Don't Know

You Can't Apply What You Don't Know

Apparently fewer Americans are reading the Bible daily. A Barna study on behalf of the American Bible Society came out a few months ago (during the time of COVID-19) that showed a drop in the number of Americans who claim to read the Bible every day—from 14 percent to 9 percent. That seems strange since you would think that during the pandemic, when we have been forced to spend more time indoors, [...]

Always Winter but Never Christmas in Woke America

Always Winter but Never Christmas in Woke America

In C. S. Lewis’s book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, he describes a beautiful place (Narnia) under the spell of an evil character (the White Witch)—who symbolizes the Devil. Lewis writes of her that it was she who has made it “always winter, but never Christmas.” “Always winter, but never Christmas”—what a great phrase to describe this world, without the loving, powerful, and positive inf [...]

Religious Freedom at Risk

Religious Freedom at Risk

400 years ago this month, a weary band of Christians from England came ashore in New England after a grueling 66-day voyage aboard the Mayflower. The Pilgrims came for one purpose, which they spelled out in writing: “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” It was all about religious freedom. They wanted to worship Jesus in the purity of the Gospel. 150 years after the Pil [...]

Why I Am a One-Issue Voter

Why I Am a One-Issue Voter

The issue of abortion has barely come up in the debates of Election 2020. But for many of us, it is still the issue that matters most. I am a one issue voter, without apology, and that issue is abortion. I’m against it. If a politician thinks it is acceptable—whatever the rhetoric—to deliberately kill a living, developing human being in the womb, that politician is wrong. And he or she [...]

The Threat of Court-Packing

The Threat of Court-Packing

One of the most substantial issues of Election 2020 is the Left’s pledge to pack the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) if they win—a scheme neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris will disavow. Most people don’t realize how seriously this could undermine our entire democratic republic. In one fell swoop, they could undermine the United States, which President Lincoln labeled the “the last best hope of mank [...]

We've Substituted the True God with a False God

We've Substituted the True God with a False God

It’s a cliché to say that this is the most important election in our lifetime. But I feel strongly that this is the most important election in our lifetime. There is so much at stake. Above all is the question of whether we will continue as one nation under God. Will we embrace America as founded or will we completely jettison all pretense of our national motto—In God we Trust? [...]

Scapegoating “White Christians” for Climate Change

Scapegoating “White Christians” for Climate Change

California, Oregon, and Washington State are burning—and it’s all the fault of “white Christians.” So says a professor at Oregon State University because “white Christians” are “science-deniers” who don’t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming. CampusReform.com reports (10/2/20) that Susan Shaw, professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies at Oregon State University claims (as do man [...]

The Dogma of the anti-Christian Bigots

The Dogma of the anti-Christian Bigots

Should being an active Christian bar you from public service? Yes, say many pundits today. It would seem that the left wants to impose a religious test to bar anyone who truly believes in Jesus from serving in government. The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg left a vacancy on the Supreme Court. In the days following her death, all of the candidates on President Trump’s shortlist to repla [...]

Good Riddance to the "Summer of Love"

Good Riddance to the "Summer of Love"

When I was a kid, I loved summer and dreaded the fall, returning to school with playtime over. But this year I am glad to see summer is over. Phew. There are some parts of this country that I don’t even recognize anymore—that changed this summer. Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Kenosha, New York City. The Marxists in the streets have turned some parts of America into the wild, wild West. The [...]

The Dangers of “Sexxx Ed”

The Dangers of “Sexxx Ed”

Because of the virus, there is a current debate between opening up the schools or only using online instruction. Online instruction allows parents to hear what is being taught to their children. But that has some liberals up at arms because they want to teach a more radical curriculum than most parents would wish.  Perhaps the largest bone of contention in this respect is in the realm of sex educa [...]

The Irony of Bible-Burning on Behalf of BLM

The Irony of Bible-Burning on Behalf of BLM

If the Bible had been followed, we never would have had chattel slavery in the United States: “He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death” (Ex. 21:16; also 1 Tim. 1:19; Rev. 18:13). Bible-burning on the streets of Portland may be old news by now, but there is an irony lost to many in burning the Scriptures. [...]

The Attack on Christ in Modern America

The Attack on Christ in Modern America

With violence in the streets of many of our most prominent cities, there is an underlying subtheme that is also troubling. Christophobia, which attacks anything Christian, is surely on the march. Perhaps the latest example is the burning of Bibles in recent Portland protests. On 8/2/20, Washington Examiner noted, “Portland protesters were filmed burning Bibles and the American flag as protests con [...]

The Church of the Woke

The Church of the Woke

During these days of COVID-19, when many churches remain closed by government mandate to keep the virus from spreading, a new religion has arisen in the country…and it’s all based on a myth. Citizens Free Press (7/25/20) posts a video in Portland, Oregon, where you can see worshipers of the “Church of the Woke,” participating in an outdoor religious service. This consists of hundreds, perhaps thou [...]
