Free Speech: Use It or Lose It
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   04.20.18
For many years I’ve said that, when it comes to America, I’m more concerned with the absence of light than with the presence of darkness. In the same way, I’m more concerned with our failure to speak freely than with those who are trying to silence us.
When a Man Set the Record for the Fastest Marathon Run by a Woman
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   04.11.18
If our world survives a few more generations, historians will doubtless look back at our current era and ask, “Was there something in the water? Something in the air? How is it that an entire society went mad at the...
Are People Born Transgender?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.21.18
Two recent headlines proclaim, “Transgender people are born that way, a new study has found,” and “Scientists uncover 20 genes linked to being transgender – supporting claims the condition has a physical basis.” What are we to make of this?...
The Left Really Is Trying to Silence Us
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.05.18
Maybe you once thought that the left wanted tolerance and diversity, but in reality, tolerance and diversity have never been the goals of the left, especially the radical left. Instead, it wants to suppress and silence opposing views, and the...
What’s the Difference Between Transgender, Transabled, Transracial, Transspecies and Transage?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   02.03.18
If it is far from ideal to mutilate healthy body parts to accommodate someone who identifies as transabled, then it is far from ideal to do the same for someone who identifies as transgender.
Why the Masterpiece Cake Case Matters to All Americans
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   12.04.17
Should a gay baker be required by law to design a cake with the message, “God hates fags”? Should an African American t-shirt maker be required by law to design a t-shirt saying, “Long live the KKK?” Should a Muslim caterer be required by law to provide pork for a secular event? Should a Jewish photographer be required to shoot a wedding on the Sabbath? The answer to all these questions is: Of course not. Why, then, should a Christian baker be required by law to design a cake celebrating the “wedding” of two women (or men)?
Pushing Back Against Transanity in the Sports World
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   10.23.17
Every so often, there is a moment of sanity that pushes back against transgender activism in the sports world, although the reaction to the sane decision is often anything but sane. And so it happened in Australia, where, “A male-female...
No, God Did Not Prescribe the Use of Cannabis in the Bible
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   09.26.17
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, a pastor calls your radio show asking how to respond to a congregant who claims that cannabis was sanctioned by God in the Torah. That’s right, sanctioned by the Lord Himself, not...
The Media’s Glaring Double Standards on Violence and Hate
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.21.17
When protestors pulled down a Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina, NPR reported that they were chanting, "No KKK, No Fascist USA." Actually, they were chanting, "No cops, no KKK, no fascist USA!" Why did NPR omit "No cops"?
From ‘Lassie to ‘Game of Thrones’: What Has Become of America?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.15.17
America was very far from perfect in the early 1960s. In much of the nation segregation was the law of the land and women certainly had far less opportunities than men, just to mention two of society’s inequities. And I’m quite aware the first issue of Playboy, featuring Marilyn Monroe in the nude, was published in 1953. At the same time, there’s no denying that America back then was a far more innocent, family friendly country than it is today.
Ben and Jerry’s Proves Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Is Not Marriage
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   05.31.17
The famous, specialty ice cream company, Ben and Jerry’s, has unintentionally given us further evidence that same-sex “marriage” is not marriage. How so?
A Question for Leftists and Progressives: Is This What You Mean by ‘Equality’?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   04.17.17
I did not intend to write about this story, but when I saw a picture of the teenager in question, I had to. He is 15-years-old, clearly a biological male. Look at his picture for yourself, mustache and all. As...
Vimeo Declares War on Gospel Transformation
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   04.03.17
If Jesus has changed your life and set you free from homosexual practice, your testimony is not welcome on Vimeo – not now, not ever. And if you see homosexuality as another aspect of sexual brokenness, something for which Jesus...
How is it Fair When a Male Weightlifter Competes Against Women?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.24.17
The performance was stunning, as New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard absolutely smoked the competition, beating her nearest competitor, a Samoan woman, by nearly 20 kilograms. The only problem is that Laurel is a biological male, born Gavin, which is why...
Shame on the Silent Christian Leaders Who Refuse to Stand Against Government Tyranny
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   02.17.17
There is only one thing more appalling than the Washington Supreme Court’s 9-0 ruling against religious liberty [on Thursday]. It is the silence of Christian leaders across America, leaders who choose convenience over confrontation, leaders who would rather be popular...
