God Help Us To Be People of Truth
11.20.19
I don’t write very often because, frankly, I find it difficult. As a witness to the events of our day, I am often overwhelmed by their significance and stymied by my own inability to put into words any analysis that seems to do justice to the magnitude of moral, spiritual and intellectual disintegration taking place all around us.

TERF War
By Laurie Higgins   |   10.25.19
Adults who impersonate the opposite sex have created the derogatory acronym “TERF,” which stands for “trans-exclusionary radical feminists,” to insult and marginalize those feminists who don’t want men in women’s private spaces. "Gender critical" feminists, many of whom are lesbians, have been at the forefront of a growing schism in the LGB/T alliance, a schism of which many remain unaware.

MENstruating Men
By Laurie Higgins   |   10.17.19
A freakish new world where inclusivity erases sex.

Ask the Female Rugby Players If Biological Sex Is the Same as Perceived Gender
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   10.16.19
You knew it had to happen sooner or later. It’s bad enough that biological males are beating biological females in races, both in high school and college. It’s bad enough when biological males are beating biological females in weightlifting contests, setting new world records in the process. But it’s even worse when the men are injuring the women in full contact sports.

By David E. Smith   |   10.14.19
In this presentation Dr. Michelle Cretella addresses the distinction between the scientific, biological reality of sex vs. the manmade, social construct of gender. She also details the wide-ranging, disastrous consequences that will result if conservatives and Christians remain passive in the face of the erroneous transgender ideology that is embraced and promoted in many pediatricians’ offices, our children’s classrooms, and in the media – especially media targeted to children and youth under the age of 18.
Trans Deception Scam
By Laurie Higgins   |   10.11.19
Given the fallen nature of humans, absolute, unquestioning trust is due no human, institution, or organization—not elected leaders, not the CIA, not the FBI, not the press, and not professional medical and mental health organizations. No organization or institution, however, is free from the corrosive effects of money and bias. When the bias is driven by that most powerful of human appetites—sex—it becomes all the more important to ferret out truth.

Trans Wreck
By Laurie Higgins   |   10.09.19
Anyone born before 1990 likely remembers the "tomboys" they grew up with. Well, that was then. This is now. Today those girls are told they're boys trapped in girls' bodies, acquiring new names and invented pronouns, cross-dressing, and having their natural puberty treated as an endocrine disorder.
