Colorado Springs Father Takes Down CRT
By Micah Clark   |   08.25.21
There is a powerful 2-minute testimony from Derrick Wilburn speaking before a school board in Colorado Springs, CO that is making the rounds on the internet.  Mr. Wilburn’s talk is widely credited with the school board’s vote to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory in his school district.
A Significant Change in Education Demographics
By Micah Clark   |   07.29.21
The number of kids who home school is slightly lower as my two head off to college in a few weeks. However, this is certainly no dent in home education. A new report finds that even though many public schools will soon reopen for in-person instruction, the percentage of parents who are choosing to educate their children has jumped dramatically.
Tear Down this Statue, But Don’t Look Over There
By Micah Clark   |   07.06.21
I recently read a very interesting, and brave, editorial from Bill Donohue of the Catholic League. It appeared on AFA’s national news service - One News Now. He points out the contradiction in the efforts to remove statues all across America because of how the culture now views the words or actions of certain individuals which can often cloud how they are remembered today for their larger contributions.
Government Solutions – Paying More for Less
By Micah Clark   |   06.24.21
Last week many news story headlines made it sound as if the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. In reality, this moderate court again avoided taking a strong stand on a politically charged issue, and simply ruled that the Plaintiffs had no standing to bring the case.
The Decline of U.S. Birth Rates Raises a Question
By Micah Clark   |   06.19.21
The United States has been drifting away from the God of the Bible for decades now. Our laws, policies and values reflect this drift. Recent data show declining fertility rates is just another indicator of this decline. We are now recording the lowest number of births since 1979.
Are Public Schools Modern Religious Institutions?
By Micah Clark   |   06.11.21
Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr gave an outstanding speech a couple of weeks ago covering several key points on education and religious freedom. Barr raises the thought-provoking question asking if today’s public schools have become religious schools promoting the orthodoxy of secularism.
Has the World Overtaken the Church?
By Micah Clark   |   05.05.21
There was a troubling recent story in Christianity Today that reveals many churches are failing the call to be in the world, but not of the world. It seems that most young Evangelical Christians now embrace cohabitation, living together before marriage. Most Evangelicals under the age of 45 have cohabited, or plan to do so in the future, or are open to the possibility.
Defining Deviancy Down
By Micah Clark   |   04.15.21
The title is a reference to a concept espoused decades ago by U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY). The idea was not original to Moynihan, but the phrase meant that as bad behavior becomes more pervasive a limit is crossed...
Forgetting the Command to Not Be Conformed to the World
By Micah Clark   |   10.08.20
Think about how Satan can desensitize people and compromise values through humor, whether it be TV sitcoms or shows that are funny, but advance lifestyles or agendas that conflict with a Christian worldview. If you recognize this, then you probably understand what The Babylon Bee does so well by making people think, through humor and satire.
A Major Problem that Explains a lot in Society
By Micah Clark   |   09.30.20
In the last two weeks I have met with two legislators who separately made the same observation as we discussed various cultural problems and issues of the day.  They both said this all goes back to the breakdown of the...
Higher Education and Liberal Indoctrination
By Micah Clark   |   09.10.20
There is an interesting article about liberal views on college campuses seeking to address the question, “Does college make students more liberal?”   It is written by several college professors, funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation, and promoted by Ohio State and North Carolina State Universities.
Perspective Should Make Us Thankful Americans
By Micah Clark   |   08.13.20
There is a lot of talk of oppression, privilege and struggles in America right now. Unfortunately, the vast majority of this dialogue is in the negative sense, very often as a smear against our system of governance.  Americans have a tendency to look through a lens that clouds not only our history, but it also limits our views to an Ameri-centric perspective.
The Intolerance of the Tolerance Culture
By Micah Clark   |   07.31.20
After two decades of hearing the virtues of tolerance and diversity, American society has become increasingly intolerant, and because of that, less diverse when it comes to the ability to offer opinions in public and private discourse.
Cancel Culture is Upon Us
By Micah Clark   |   07.02.20
Democrats in California have passed a resolution to tear down a statue of John Wayne and to remove his name from the airport where it stands. The reason they say that they are doing this stems from a 1971 interview...
A Powerful Slogan Hides Core Issues
By Micah Clark   |   06.18.20
If you have logged on to Netflix, Amazon, and other places recently, you have probably seen some of corporate America’s virtue signaling through banners in support of Black Lives Matter.  By itself, it is a powerful slogan which no one can disagree with, even if you’d prefer to say all lives matter.  However, there’s more to this than just a slogan.
