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 [...]

The War on Western Civilization

The War on Western Civilization

During one of the darkest periods of World War II, Winston Churchill asked aloud, “Will Britain surrender too?” Never. At the time, in the summer and fall of 1940, the great leader of the U.K. declared, “I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization.” Churchill, the great lion of the 20th century, understood that if the Nazis [...]

The Antidote to Cancel Culture

The Antidote to Cancel Culture

Each week brings more bad news on “cancel culture”—primarily individuals losing their jobs for one alleged offensive statement. Cancel culture is about shutting people down based on passing, momentary ideological fads.  The communications director of Boeing was forced to abruptly resign because someone complained about an article he wrote in 1988 arguing against women serving in combat. J.K. Rowli [...]

Atheists Won't Like the Author of the Black National Anthem

Atheists Won't Like the Author of the Black National Anthem

America is undergoing its cultural revolution right now, obliterating as much of the past as possible. We saw over the weekend, “social justice warriors” in Rochester, NY, tearing down a statue of Frederick Douglas—even though he was black, an escaped slave, and an ardent abolitionist. ((Maybe the statue was toppled because Douglas was not radical enough: “When radical abolitionists, under t [...]

Is America a “Failed” Experiment?

Is America a “Failed” Experiment?

The barbarians are at the gates. Actually, the barbarians are inside the gates and on the streets. They are tearing down statues left and right. As we celebrate our national birthday this week, the Fourth of July, it doesn’t feel like a celebration. Harvard professor Dr. Cornel West says that America is basically a failure. After the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis policeman, W [...]

The Catastrophe of Fatherless America

The Catastrophe of Fatherless America

Much of the mayhem we see today is linked to fatherlessness. Around this time we celebrate Father’s Day. But fathers in our culture have not recently appeared very important—at least according to Hollywood and other culture-shapers. We used to have programs like “Father Knows Best” or “Leave It to Beaver” with a respectable father figure. Then we devolved to Archie Bunker on “All in the Family.” H [...]

Actress Falsely Puts a Bible in Hitler’s Hand

Actress Falsely Puts a Bible in Hitler’s Hand

Last week, during some of the race-related protests, President Trump famously held up a Bible in one hand outside of an historic D.C. church that rioters had set afire. Actress Debra Messing (Will and Grace) then sent out a tweet, in which she showed Trump with the Bible and next to it she juxtaposed a picture of Hitler supposedly holding a Bible. She had the caption: “A dog whistle to white natio [...]

How Politically Diverse are US Universities? Consider Yale.

Colleges like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton were once bastions of Christian orthodoxy. Consider the following: Harvard’s earliest motto was In Christi Gloriam, “For the Glory of Christ.” One of Harvard’s early seals (1692) contained the Latin phrase Veritas (Truth) Christo (for Christ) Et Ecclesiae (and the Church). A group of ministers, who viewed Harvard as increasingly liberal, found [...]

Revolutionary War Silhouettes Cause Freakout

The English poet Steve Turner once observed, “History repeats itself. It has to. No one is listening.” I think this applies very well to American history. The average American today is grossly ignorant of our history and we fall prey too often to those cutting us off from that history—for whatever reason. Here is a case in point. In an obscure display in the state of Washington, liberals are melti [...]
