Some Crucial Questions for Proponents and Opponents of CRT
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   11.08.21
In America today, when it comes to the question of Critical Race Theory (CRT), we are like ships – really, like battleships – passing each other in the night. One side shouts, “We’ve got to get CRT out of our schools! It is hurting our children!” The other side responds, “CRT is not being taught in our children’s schools! This is just a racist dog whistle!” Is there any way to bridge the divide?
No, Juan Williams. ‘Parents’ Rights’ Is Not a Code for White Race Politics
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   11.03.21
In his November 1 op-ed for The Hill, Fox News Analyst Juan Williams claimed that the “parents’ rights’ mantra in the Virginia gubernatorial elections is simply “a code for white race politics.” To the contrary, this really is about parents’ rights and about what is best for all children. To inject charges of white supremacy and racism is to miss the whole point of why so many parents are so upset. In all candor and with due respect, I would have expected better from Mr. Williams.
Why the Heavy-Handed Mandate Bullying?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   10.25.21
I am not an anti-vaxxer, and plenty of my friends and colleagues have been vaccinated. And, from the perspective of those who believe that the COVID-19 vaccinations are safe and effective and even life-saving, I can understand the desire to see everyone vaccinated. But what I cannot possibly understand is the threatening, vindictive, heavy-handed bullying in conjunction with the mandates. Not only are these unfair and even cruel, but they give fuel to the fire of those who view the mandates as nothing less than dangerous governmental overreach.
When Parents Became the Enemy
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   10.11.21
With all the ominous things taking place in America – and there are certainly quite a few – perhaps none is more ominous than this: Parents are being demonized. Moms and dads have become he enemy. It is now the government (or the education system) vs. those entrusted with raising the next generation. How on earth did this happen? We have certainly come a long way from the days of Father Knows Best – a very long way.
When the Larger Culture Abandons God and Biblical Values
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.17.21
For the last several decades, it has been common to hear America described as a “post-Christian nation.” This does not mean that America can never turn back to some of its very Christian roots. Rather, it means that what used to be Christian-based, cultural norms are no longer norms today.

The implications of this are massive, representing a seismic cultural shift. It is imperative that we respond rightly.
An Open Letter to Women Say ‘My Body, My Choice’
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.04.21
If you are a woman who believes that it is your moral right to have an abortion, you are likely quite angry or frightened over the enactment of the Texas Heartbeat Bill. All the more is the case if you live in Texas. And you likely think that people like me, conservative, male, pro-life Christians who are glad to see the bill enacted, are heartless, controlling, misogynistic monsters.
We Were Here When Medical Science Lost Its Mind
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.04.21
One day, when sanity returns to the world, we will be able to tell a future generation, “We were here when science lost touch with reality. We were here when the medical profession lost its mind. We were here when feelings displaced biology.” 
The Incredible Incoherence of Ben & Jerry’s Capitulation to the BDS Movement
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.24.21
The iconic, famously woke ice cream company, Ben & Jerry’s, announced on Monday that it will no longer sell its product in “Occupied Palestinian Territory.” As the company explained, “We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).” However, they added, “Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement.”
Radical Transgender Activism Is Proof Positive that We Have Lost Our Corporate Minds
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.16.21
Just think of the upside down world in which we live today. Women and girls are relaxing in a California spa when a man walks in, naked and fully exposed, in full view of these mothers and daughters. Yet when a complaint is issued, the spa, along with the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times editorial board, defend the man. Do we need any more proof that we have lost our corporate minds?
This Is the Dangerous LGBTQ+ Trajectory That We Have Been Warning About
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.08.21
I recently explained that, as much as I am sympathetic to the goals of gay Americans who feel that they are simply fighting for equality and freedom, I cannot support those goals for two reasons. The first is biblical: same-sex relationships and endless gender variations violate God’s best plan for humanity. The second is social: when we look at the trajectory of LGBTQ+ activism, we see that it ends up going in a very dangerous and destructive direction.
A Sobering Moment in the Midst of June’s Endless Flood of LGBTQ Pride
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   06.23.21
It’s all but impossible to miss. LGBTQ pride is being pushed on us from every angle and on an endless array of websites.
The Cultural Tide Is Turning
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   05.26.21
In the midst of our dangerous, steady descent into cultural madness, there are signs of encouragement as well. The morally-based, rationally-grounded resistance is rising. More and more people are saying enough is enough. Even the liberal media is giving voice to this dissent.

But this is what many of us have been expecting for years, knowing that the cultural radicals would overplay their hand. A push-back has been inevitable, as witnessed by these recent examples.
The Sword of ‘Fear Sells’ Cuts Both Ways
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   04.15.21
Have you seen the Project Veritas, undercover video footage exposing CNN’s extreme anti-Trump animus? Have you seen the candid comments about their intentional misrepresentations of both Trump (negatively) and Biden (positively)? Have you heard the unashamed admission that “fear sells”?
The Bigoted Call to Ban ORU from the NCAA
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.26.21
The founding of higher education in America was almost entirely Christian, to the point that, even by 1881, “80 percent of the colleges in the United States were church related and private.” As one Christian author pointed out, “106 of...
Agnostics, Orthodox Jews, Catholics and Evangelicals Agree: ‘Equality Act’ is Dangerous to Human Rights
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.09.21
The Newsweek article by Natasha Chart and Rabbi Yaakov Menken begins with these words: “It would be hard to accuse an Orthodox Jewish rabbi and an agnostic feminist leader of walking in lockstep.” All the more would this be true if you added Catholics to the mix, then threw in some evangelicals. What cause could bring such disparate people together, all united as one?
