Words Matter
By Robert Knight   |   09.03.20
One of the most effective ways that Marxists advance their agenda is to change how we talk about things. When clever rewordings replace the truth, it’s easier to fool people. For example, the Washington Post this past week said a transgender plaintiff “was designated female at birth, but identifies as male.”

In the blink of an eye, a biological fact – that someone was born a girl – is brushed aside and replaced with a term that implies that male or female sex is assigned, not a natural phenomenon.

By Robert Knight   |   08.22.20
An important new book by historian Paul Kengor sheds considerable light on Karl Marx and by implication the madness and mob violence that has descended on the country.

By Robert Knight   |   07.08.20
We don't have to imagine what life would be like without laws to secure life, civil rights and property, or faith in God. It's been in front of us ever since protests of George Floyd's killing in late May morphed into a violent revolution.

Socialism Violates All Ten Commandments
By Robert Knight   |   07.03.19

When ‘Equality’ Means Anything but Reality
By Robert Knight   |   06.29.19
The conceit of our age is that we can alter reality at a whim. We’re really that smart and powerful. We not only can control the planet’s weather, but we can defy God’s essential design for life, reflected in nature...

Having a Merry Pagan Christmas
By Robert Knight   |   12.19.18
New York Times columnist Ross Douthat says the culture war in America may not be so much about secularism or atheism replacing Christianity but the rise of an old Christian foe – paganism. This ancient religion differs from atheism in...
The Sensation Nation
By Robert Knight   |   11.26.18
A common refrain when people lament violence, sex and f-bombs in movies, goes: “How did we get from the golden days of Hollywood to this?” Actually, Hollywood, with many notable exceptions, has been at war with decency and American values since its inception. It just wasn’t as starkly apparent.

By Robert Knight   |   07.14.18
Looking at the current political and cultural climate in Washington, D.C., you might get the idea that the ruling class is in the midst of a conniption.  Even the walls of the National Cathedral are vibrating with weirdness – more...
Mormon Exodus from Scouting Is Good for Boys
By Robert Knight   |   05.18.18
It’s official. The Mormons have finally figured out that they can’t do business with the devil. Bully for them. More specifically, the Salt Lake City-based denomination is flipping off the demonic forces assigned by Beelzebub to wage war on God’s...
A Black-Robed Counterrevolution
By Robert Knight   |   04.18.18
