Urge Gov. Pritzker to Let Kids Play

On July 29th, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced new COVID-19 restrictions on youth sports statewide for the upcoming school year. Starting August 15, only “low-risk” sports like tennis, baseball, cross country, swimming and golf will be allowed, but “medium” and “high” risk sports, including football, wrestling, soccer and competitive cheering will not be allowed. The governor’s office released a list of sports ranked in terms of their risk for COVID-19 transmittal.

During his coronavirus update last Wednesday, Gov. Pritzker explained,

This isn’t news that anyone wants to hear. But this virus remains dangerous to kids and parents and grandparents, teachers

The Health Hazards of Homosexuality: An Important New Book from MassResistance (Part 1)

Charles Dickens famously opened his novel A Tale of Two Cities with the words, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Those words came to my mind as I clawed my way through the new book by MassResistance, The Health Hazards of Homosexuality. The book is as important as it is difficult to get through. It is the best resource I’ve seen on one of the worst topics in the modern public square.

Here is the book’s subtitle: “What the Medical and Psychological Research Reveals.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the organization MassResistance, you …

The Entire ‘LGBT’ Narrative Just Unraveled

If your daughter, sister, mother or friend “identified” as a fat person trapped in a perilously emaciated body – if she truly believed she was obese, but, in reality, suffered from anorexia – would you affirm her “fatness” and get her liposuction, or would you go to the ends of the earth to help her bring her subjective (and mistaken) identity into alignment with objective reality? When someone is engaged in demonstrably self-destructive behavior, it is not loving, but hateful, to encourage persistence.

It was, ironically, lesbian activist and writer Dorothy Allison who once wrote, “Things come apart so easily …

Things That Make You Say, “Huh?”

According to a recent study in the American Public Health Journal, kids who identify as “LGBTQ” are not only getting pregnant, even though they claim to identify with sexual behaviors which are non-procreative same-sex interactions, they are getting pregnant at MORE THAN TWICE the rate of their heterosexual peers!

The study comes out of New York. Liberals have been quick to blame abstinence education. However, according the Guttmacher Institute, New York doesn’t even require abstinence as a part of their sex education, nor are parents required to give consent regarding their child’s sex education instruction.

Ironically, the Centers for …

A Major Public Health Crisis

Last week the Centers for Disease Control released some frightening new numbers revealing that America is reaping what we have sown with our licentious culture and our war on values.  One in three Americans now have a sexually transmitted disease.  (The ratio is much closer to one out of two if you include only sexually active age groups.) 
 
We now have 20 million new sexually transmitted infections a year. Half of all new infections occur among those aged 15 to 24.  Today, 110 million Americans have a venereal disease, which costs the nation about $16 billion a year.  …

CDC Reports Show Increase in Abstinence

By Leigh Jones, World Magazine

Sexual activity and pregnancy among teens is declining

Two reports recently released by the Centers for Disease Control show teens are embracing abstinence, despite the prevalence of promiscuity portrayed in music, movies and on television.

Abstinence advocates say the new statistics on sexual activity and birth rates among teens are an encouraging sign that young people understand the risks associated with having sex, even though most of them have been taught that taking the right precautions makes it safe. The new numbers also disprove one of the main arguments used by advocates of sex education, …
