By Thomas Hampson | 02.07.23During the mid-90’s international condemnation was directed at the practice of female circumcision, a euphemism for female genital mutilation. Did you know that The Female Genital Mutilation Act of 1996, which outlawed the procedure in all 50 States and it made it a crime to take a child to another country for that purpose as well, passed with substantial bipartisan support?
By Israel Wayne | 01.27.23I just read an op-ed from a feminist author, published by CNN, who I will leave unnamed (no need to give her career free publicity), attacking the concept of parental rights... The irony is she believes schoolteachers, physicians and politicians SHOULD have the right to facilitate major life-changes for these impressionable young people.
By Laurie Higgins | 01.11.23There’s a grand act of un-creation taking place all across this nation. Leftists are busy with this ugly business of un-creating decency, order, justice, compassion, and beauty, and children play a central role in this ugly business. To leftists, children...
By David E. Smith | 01.09.23In late May of 2021, the Illinois General Assembly jammed through SB 818, a bill to require so-called "comprehensive sex-education" to be taught in public schools, starting in kindergarten through 12th grade. It was signed by Governor JB Pritzker and became law on August 20, 2021, despite the hue and cry of parents and grandparents throughout the state. Public schools that taught health and safety classes would have to now teach left-wing sexuality classes to our impressionable young students.
By Laurie Higgins | 01.06.23Leftists have redefined “hate.” To them hatred refers to ideas and moral beliefs that they think harm others. So, using that definition, how do leftists hate people? Let's count the ways. Well, not all the ways. That would suck dry the wellsprings of hope from which we draw at the beginning of each New Year and which are granted to us by a gracious God who has jobs for us to do—with joy.
By Laurie Higgins | 12.22.22Haven’t leftists sanctimoniously proclaimed that no “trans”-identifying man would ever harm women in women’s private spaces?
Haven’t leftists bristled with faux-umbrage at the suggestion that allowing objectively male persons in women’s private spaces will result in predators pretending to be women to easily access their victims?
By Laurie Higgins | 12.13.22Biden’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition, the notoriously creepy Sam Brinton, is in the news again and again for all the wrong reasons. Correction: Brinton finally lost his job on Monday after not one but two luggage thefts at two airports: one in Las Vegas and one in Minneapolis. His luggage of choice is women’s luggage where can be found women’s jewelry, undergarments, and clothing.
By Laurie Higgins | 12.06.22On Monday, December 5, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court began hearing 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, another case that pits the purported rights of same-sex couples to force Christian business-owners to create products (or provide services) that express messages related...

By Laurie Higgins | 11.26.22By now many have heard that the high-end fashion company Balenciaga was forced by public pressure to pull and apologize for its recent ad campaign featuring preschool children holding teddy bears wearing what looks to average Americans like bondage paraphernalia.
By Laurie Higgins | 11.20.22Pastor Derek Buikema asks professor, theologian, and author Dr. Carl Trueman to explain a bit about “expressive individualism,” the subject of Dr. Trueman’s important book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual Revolution.
By Laurie Higgins | 11.20.22In another brief excerpt from IFI’s interview with Dr. Carl Trueman, author of two books that touch on “trans”-cultic beliefs including Strange New World: How Thinkers and Activists Redefined Identity and Sparked the Sexual Revolution, Pastor Derek Buikema asks about the responsibility of Christians in regard to the harm being done to children by “trans”-cultic beliefs.
By Ecce Verum | 11.09.22Our culture wasn't filled with sexually deviant ideologies overnight. The sorry shape in which we see our culture—and especially our schools—is the culmination of decades of granting evil "just a little more room." Now that many schools are in the grip of twisted curricula and policies bowing the knee to the idol of sexual insanity, we may be finally beginning to wake up.
By Laurie Higgins | 11.02.22Halloween: the favorite holiday of men who cross-dress, wear woman-face, and like to hang around young children. And in San Diego they did just that. The San Diego Union-Tribune (U-T) reported on the “first-ever Boo Bash,” which included, “candy, a kid’s costume contest,” and, fittingly, “a Disney-villain themed drag queen performance.” Drag queens are villainous—that is, depraved—and Disney is now America’s premier purveyor of depravity to children.
