Just Say “Merry Christmas”
Before we even put a dent into the Thanksgiving leftovers, we leap wholeheartedly into “the most wonderful time of the year!” But, when the décor switches from gold and orange to red and green, do you find yourself wondering if you can use the “C word” when you interact with a cashier, co-worker, or barista? You know the word I mean . . . Christmas. Should you abstain on the chance you might offend someone or seem non-inclusive? Dennis Prager,...

Porn Fan & “Shame” Foe: Another Wolf in the Church
Publicity-hound in sheep’s clothing, Nadia Bolz-Weber, former pastor of a fake church in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) denomination, is in the news again. Last August, Bolz-Weber made the news by proclaiming that “consumption of pornography” shouldn’t be shamed. In her view, there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with watching “ethically sourced” porn as long as people consume it in moderation.

Knowing the Prince of Peace
Suicide and drug overdose rates continued to rise in 2017, helping drive the number of U.S. deaths to the highest total in more than 100 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a series of reports on mortality released last week.

Baloney Served Up by Pretend-Woman to Coerce Mis-Sexing Language
The New York Times has published an opinion piece by another young man who seeks to pass as a woman. In his essay, Manhattan, Illinois native Parker Marie Molloy tries futilely to mask the incoherence of his argument, which is that banning words passers don’t like from social media platforms is necessary to protect freedom of speech. His argument is composed of two dubious contentions: 1.) If language issues make passers feel really bad, they will choose not to speak,...

Oh No, Science Might Actually Point to That?
There is an interesting new scientific study with findings that are unsettling for those with a secular worldview. Senior Research Associates, Mark Stoeckle and David Thaler of the University of Basel, Switzerland, told the media that “the conclusion is very surprising,” and that they “fought very hard against it, as hard as they could.” The reason why the scientists probably did not like their findings is because it has a rather obvious Biblical connection. The UK Daily Mail story, below,...

Social Justice Warriors and Their Anti-Life Work
Do you want to know what motivates and animates our “Social Justice Warriors”? Well, I know you know it’s not really justice—one of the buzzwords often blathered by our warriors—because justice depends on absolute standards by which to determine the parameters and constitutive features of justice. While claiming to promote justice, these battlers steadfastly stand against virtue and truth. In other words, they Oppose Righteousness Continuously. They’re ORCs. (Any resemblance to fictional goblins is purely coincidental). One ORC, cross-dressing lesbian...

Is Capitalism Immoral?
Bernie Sanders, a socialist and U.S. Senator from Vermont, doesn’t like capitalist economics. Visiting the Pope in 2016, he made some serious accusations. I told him [the Pope] that I was incredibly appreciative of the incredible role that he is playing in this planet in discussing issues about the need for an economy based on morality, not greed…[i] Doubling down, Bernie went even farther: At an economic conference held at the Vatican, Bernie Sanders found occasion to denounce capitalism. “At...
