Ask the Female Rugby Players If Biological Sex Is the Same as Perceived Gender
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   10.16.19
You knew it had to happen sooner or later. It’s bad enough that biological males are beating biological females in races, both in high school and college. It’s bad enough when biological males are beating biological females in weightlifting contests, setting new world records in the process. But it’s even worse when the men are injuring the women in full contact sports.
The Religion of Climate Change and the New Doomsday Scenario
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   10.05.19
When I came to faith as a 16-year-old, drug-using, hippie rock drummer, I was told that Jesus was returning very soon. The end of the world was near. Very near. Today, there is a new religious narrative, especially among young people, with a new “end of the world” scenario. But this one is depressing and grim, with nothing redemptive about it.
Donald Trump: The Champion of Religious Freedom
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.27.19
In June, 2016, when candidate Trump promised a large gathering of evangelical Christian leaders that he was committed to defending our liberties, I was skeptical. Was he just trying to get our votes? Did he really care about our freedoms?...
Killing the Unborn, Confessing to Plants
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.24.19
I’m all for environmental stewardship, and there’s something to be said for a biblically-based ecology. But I find it beyond ironic that a staunchly liberal seminary which supports a woman’s “right” to abortion held a special chapel service to confess to plants. So, it’s fine to take the lives of unborn babies in the womb, but we must confess our sins to the plants. May God help us.
Planned Parenthood Lives Up to Its Bloodthirsty and Racist Reputation
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.25.19
When an organization makes billions of dollars killing babies in the womb, it is clearly a bloodthirsty organization. And when a disproportionate number of those babies are black and Hispanic, it is clearly a racist organization. All this is self-evident...
Get Outraged and Stay Outraged
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   06.28.19
There are some things so wrong that we cannot allow ourselves to get used to them. We must always be outraged over them. Always grieved over them. We can never accept them as the new status quo. The drag queen assault on our children is one of those things.
How to Fight Back Against Leftist Censorship
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   06.19.19
We all know about the leftist leanings of the so-called masters of the universe, the internet giants. We all know about the discriminatory treatment that many of us on the right are experiencing. The question is: How do we respond?...
The Divided States of America
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   06.08.19
I recently wrote about the coming civil war over the issue of abortion, and day by day, state by state, the divide is getting more pronounced and more extreme. Let’s take a look at a map of America to see...
Did President Trump Make False Claims About Infanticide?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   05.03.19
As expected, pundits on the left are in an uproar at the president’s claims that a doctor conspires with parents as to whether to execute their newborn baby. In Trump’s words, “The baby is born, the mother meets with the doctor, they take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully. Then the doctor and mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.”
The Boy Scouts Scandal Is Shocking But Not Surprising
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   04.27.19
The open secret is no secret anymore. The tragedy is being uncovered for the world to see. As headlines now announce, “Sexual abuse scandal rocks the Boy Scouts of America as it is revealed ‘more than 12,000 members were victims...
The Rise and Fall of the Southern Poverty Law Center
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.25.19
There was a time when the “Southern Poverty Law Center” (SPLC) was widely respected for its courageous work. Oppressive hate groups like the KKK had no greater enemy than the SPLC. The SPLC stood for justice, for righteousness, for the ...
Amazon Crosses a Very Dangerous Censorship Line
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.07.19
With the news last week that Amazon has banned Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, co-authored by British activist Tommy Robinson and Peter McLoughlin, Amazon has crossed a very dangerous and precarious line. Two immediate questions come to mind. First, why ban a book critiquing Islam when a host of other books critiquing – no, harshly attacking – other religious faiths are available on Amazon? Second, why ban this book and not other books that critique Islam? Why draw the line here?
The Absence of God Is the Big Issue
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   01.10.19
There’s a reason that the first openly bisexual senator did not take her oath on the Bible. There’s a reason that an atheist website rebuked me for “misgendering” someone. Simply stated, to embrace the God of the Bible means to...
Speak Up and Speak Out in 2019
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   01.05.19
May I propose a New Year’s resolution for 2019? Let’s determine to speak up and to speak out, to raise our voices with clarity and compassion, to refuse to hold back regardless of cost or consequence. Will you join me?...
It’s the Courts, Stupid
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   11.13.18
When Bill Clinton was running for president in 1992, his campaign strategist James Carville gave him the formula for success: Focus on the economy. In Carville’s famous words, “It’s the economy, stupid.” Today, President Donald Trump could easily campaign with...
