New Trier High School’s Fight Against Diversity Becomes National Story
The controversy over a mandatory all-school, all-day Leftist seminar on “racial civil rights” at New Trier High School on Chicago’s North Shore continues to intensify. It has now become a national story with Peter Berkowitz, senior fellow with Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, publishing an editorial in the Wall Street Journal in which he accurately describes the event: What passes for education at many American public schools is too often closer to indoctrination.

Shame on the Silent Christian Leaders Who Refuse to Stand Against Government Tyranny
There is only one thing more appalling than the Washington Supreme Court’s 9-0 ruling against religious liberty [on Thursday]. It is the silence of Christian leaders across America, leaders who choose convenience over confrontation, leaders who would rather be popular than prophetic, leaders who prefer the favor of people over the favor of the God. Shame on these silent leaders. Today is a day to stand. There are, of course, the handful of expected Christian voices protesting the court’s outrageous...

Trump’s Executive Order on Refugees — Separating Fact from Hysteria
The liberal news media, which is ever more resembling a communications arm of the Democratic Party, has been determined to portray President Donald Trump’s immigration Executive Order as over-reach, inhumane, and anti-Muslim. It is not new that American consumers of the news media should be wary of the daily narrative, but the need for it increases daily as nearly every step taken by the Trump Administration is going to be picked apart and pilloried on a daily basis.

Hypocrisy of Leftists on Religious Tolerance
On Monday, I wrote about World Hijab Day during which non-Muslim teachers in public schools adopted the religious practice of hijab, wearing the head covering that some Muslim women wear voluntarily and some are coerced into wearing. Hijab is a controversial practice even among Muslims, many of whom see it as a symbol of a form of political Islam called Islamism that oppresses women.

Identity Politics and Paraphilias: Transgenderism a Choice or Disorder?
Last time we introduced transgenderism, the next letter on the LGB…T march into the new world. There is way too much to cover in just one more post but I’ll do my best. If you’re like me, you’re pretty tired of this topic after the past couple of years.

Should Public School Teachers Participate in World Hijab Day
February 1, 2013 marked the first annual World Hijab Day, which was started by Nazma Khan, who emigrated from Bangladesh to the U.S. when she was 11-years-old....
