Saving Our National Hyde

Saving Our National Hyde

Watch out whenever a politician says, “I’m a devout Catholic, but…” Whatever follows the “but” shows where their true allegiance lies. So it is with President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who are out of step with their Church’s teaching. Both have expressed a desire to see abortion rights extended, even up to the moment of birth—which is infanticide. Now they even want to repeal the H [...]

Apologists for Communists

Apologists for Communists

As the Cuban crisis unfolds, we are seeing an unprecedented number of protesters. Some of these dissidents could lose their lives for their bravery. A friend of mine from church is from Cuba. Carlos was a political prisoner for 18 months in his home country. His crime? Trying to escape Cuba. Eventually, he did get to escape. I asked him about today’s protests. He said, “62 years later—this i [...]

The Time for School Choice Is Past Due

The Time for School Choice Is Past Due

The following article is a good start in identifying the problem and calling for a solution. While school choice is far better than what we have today, most of the schools that parents would choose are still controlled by the government. The best school choice is to choose not to send your children to any government school. Schools run by churches that are empty six days a week, private schools ru [...]

Fatherlessness Can Be Fatal

Fatherlessness Can Be Fatal

There were more shootings in Chicago over the weekend. The irony of these shootings, in which 52 were shot and 5 died (Chicago Sun-Times Wire, 6/21/21), is the weekend itself….Father’s Day weekend. Some sociologists note that what we’re seeing in large part are quite often the results of fatherlessness in America. Mark J. Perry, a scholar with American Enterprise Institute, put out a chart on Marc [...]

One Nation Under Allah?

One Nation Under Allah?

Recently, a student at Justice High School in Fairfax, Virginia, led the graduation ceremony in the Pledge of Allegiance. In this public school setting, when she got to the part about “one nation under God,” she said, instead, “one nation under Allah.” This was apparently without any permission from school officials. The idea of “one nation under Allah” is a natural outgrowth of the idea of “multi [...]

NYC Needs a Reformation of Morals

NYC Needs a Reformation of Morals

When our first president under the Constitution was sworn in on April 30, 1789, it was in New York City. Back then it was our capital city. Today it is often called the cultural capital of the country. George Washington took the oath of office in the common way it was done in his Anglican Church, by saying, “So help me, God.” He took the oath with his hand on an open Bible. [...]

Progressivism Is a Rival Religion

Progressivism Is a Rival Religion

“[T]he state is necessarily hostile to Christianity due to it being not only a rival pole of power in society, but because the state itself promotes its own religion in the form of progressivism.” — Zachary Yost It has been said that he who frames the debate wins the debate. I think the “progressives” were brilliant to coin this term. But in reality, it’s one big lie. Progress is a good thing, bu [...]

Marxism in the Military

Marxism in the Military

Can anybody name a square inch spot on the planet anywhere where Marxism has brought anything good? Anywhere? Certainly not in • China, • Russia, • Cambodia, • Vietnam, • Cuba, • Venezuela. And now, Marxism is allegedly making inroads into the U.S. military at present? So says a whistleblower, who just got fired from the military. Critical Race Theory, which is now being taught in many schools and [...]

Teaching Kids That America Was Always Racist

Teaching Kids That America Was Always Racist

If there are riots now in America, what will it be like 20 years from now if the New York Times gets its way? The New York Times sponsored the 1619 Project, which postulates that America’s real beginnings as a nation are when the first African slaves were brought to Jamestown in 1619. Many historians note that this is a distortion of our nation’s roots. Worse, it makes young people turn against th [...]

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 [...]
