Twitter Enlists ‘Gay’ Thought Police
By Matt Barber   |   02.15.16
This cannot be good for free speech and the open exchange of ideas. Not for Christians and conservatives anyway. Twitter announced on Wednesday that it has assembled a new “Twitter Trust & Safety Council” to “ensure that people feel safe...
Johnny Cash: The Unsung Disciple
By Matt Barber   |   02.08.16
On the 26th of this month, legendary singer/song-writer and iced-cool customer Johnny Cash would have celebrated his 85th birthday. Even as I write, his live version of “Folsom Prison Blues” click-clacks through my earbuds like a Southern Pacific boxcar over...
Myth Busted: ‘Separation of Church and State’
By Matt Barber   |   02.01.16
The American church has a problem. It’s one part fear, one part confusion and one part apathy. Pastors, priests and rabbis have long swallowed the false notion that all things religious and all things political are somehow mutually exclusive –...
Shaming Indeed
By Matt Barber   |   01.27.16
Abortion and promiscuity. Planned Parenthood and “slut shaming.” I was reminded on this, the 43rd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s disgraceful Roe v. Wade abortion-on-demand opinion, how inexorably linked are America’s abortion death culture and her ongoing sexual revolution....
Every Muslim Will Bow Before Jesus
By Matt Barber   |   01.11.16
My goal here is not to offend. Neither is it to persuade. In matters of the spirit, there is but One capable of opening the eyes of the heart. Rather, my objective is to sow seeds of Truth so that...
Myth of the ‘Moderate Muslim’
By Matt Barber   |   01.06.16
When it comes to the global scourge of orthodox Islam, the Western world, which Islamists expressly seek to “destroy from within,” is an upside-down realm wherein objective facts, logic and reason must yield to multiculturalist make-believe, “progressive” propaganda and political correctness run amok. Faithful Muslims want to kill you, and faithless progressives seem all too happy to help them along. Look at the ongoing Muslim invasion of Europe. This progressive paradise, a burgeoning multicultural dystopia, is beginning to look an awful lot like hell on earth.
The Gift of Religious Freedom
By Matt Barber   |   12.28.15
While the legal case will continue to work its way through the courts, the bottom line is this: Kim Davis has won. The homofascists have lost. Last Tuesday, Kentucky’s new governor, Matt Bevin, issued an executive order that eliminates the...
‘Christian Terrorists’ Don’t Exist
By Matt Barber   |   12.10.15
Workplace violence strikes again. “Allahu Akbar!” evidently means, “I quit,” and pipe bombs are the new resignation letter. Southern Baptist redneck Syed Rizwan Farook and his Irish Catholic wife, Tashfeen Malik, are reported to have been inexplicably in touch with ambiguously international, not-at-all-Islam-related terrorists under investigation by the FBI prior to mowing down 35 white-privileged American citizens at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.
‘Emmaus Code’ Shows Jesus is the Messiah
By Matt Barber   |   12.01.15
One of my favorite C.S. Lewis quotes points out, as only Lewis could, that Jesus was either the Messiah (and the Son of God) as prophesied in the ancient Jewish scriptures, or He was a liar, a lunatic, or, worse,...
A Christian Response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis
By Matt Barber   |   11.23.15
What was President Obama’s immediate and instinctive response to this month’s Islamic terror attacks in Paris? Did he offer prayers for the families of the slaughtered and vow to wipe out the global cancer that is Islamic Jihad? Did he pledge to come alongside France and work with our wounded European ally until every last Islamic State barbarian is wiped from the face of the earth?
America’s Collegiate Shop of Horrors
By Matt Barber   |   11.16.15
If you’re outraged and don’t know why, but, since your BFFs are, you are too, then this column is for you. Trigger warning: If you’re one of those precious little snowflakes who #StandWithMizzou and support the #MillionStudentMarch, be warned: the...
It’s War!  Real Women vs. Dudes in Skirts
By Matt Barber   |   11.02.15
How’s this for a sign of the times? Glamour Magazine has now confirmed that it plans to award a man its highly coveted (or not so much) “Woman of the Year” award. While explaining this, er, groundbreaking decision, Glamour’s editor-in-chief,...
‘Snapping of the American Mind:’ Good Medicine
By Matt Barber   |   10.26.15
No, you haven’t lost your mind. Yes, America has. If someone just 20 years ago had said, for starters, that we’d someday elect an anti-American president who would intentionally flood our borders with millions of illegal immigrants and Islamist “refugees,”...
The Facts About Pope’s Meeting With Kim Davis
By Matt Barber   |   10.07.15
Big news this week as “progressives” worldwide learned, to their utter shock and mournful consternation, that the pope is Catholic. Rumors are they will next examine wild bears, the woods and certain mysteries therein. On Wednesday the Vatican confirmed what...
‘Burn Kim Davis Alive!’
By Matt Barber   |   09.14.15
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts.” He was partly right. Liberty of conscience is indeed sacred. There is, however, a higher...
