Largest Illinois High School District Opposes Single-Sex Locker Rooms
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.13.19
Just when you thought civilized first-world countries had deposited mythology and science-denying irrationality in the dustbin of history, the “trans” cult emerged seeking to force science-loving Americans to embrace the solipsistic, “trans”-centric worldview in which biological sex has neither reality...
Can Homosexuality Spread Via Culture?
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.10.19
Much of what the homosexual community (i.e., those who choose to place their unchosen homoerotic desires at the center of their identity) claims is false, and increasingly they’re being forced to admit their claims are false. Some of these claims...
Transgenderism: The Consequences
By David E. Smith   |   09.09.19

Tucker, Steyn and Leftist Language Fascists
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.24.19
Several days ago, I took Tucker Carlson—a self-identifying Christian—to my teeny tiny virtual woodshed for congratulating homosexual Democratic strategist Richard Goodstein on his God-mocking, soul-destroying pseudo-marriage. Well, now I’m offering Carlson a hearty virtual pat on the back for Thursday...
The Effeminacy of Silence
By Douglas Wilson   |   08.23.19
We have had multiple stories we could use to illustrate how this works, three a day on average, but let me just pick one of the gaudier ones—drag queens in the kids’ section of our libraries. There are three basic kinds of characters in these stories. First, we have the drag queens grooming the little kids, and the lesbian librarians who set it all up. Second, we have a goodly number of Joe Six-packs, watching the news about this latest travesty as it comes on the 48 television sets at their favorite sports bar, with all of them saying, “What the hell?!” or the rough equivalent. And then third, we have the effeminacy of silence everywhere else.

By Timothy J. Dailey   |   08.22.19

Look What’s in Store for Public School Students in Illinois–YIKES!
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.15.19
Illinoisans shouldn’t need a reminder of how committed Illinois politicians are to using tax dollars and government schools to indoctrinate other people’s children, but Governor J.B. Pritzker just gave them one last Friday when he signed the “LGBTQ” school indoctrination bill into law. This law, which takes effect in July 2020, requires that all children ages 5-18 in public schools be taught about the deviant sexual proclivities of men and women who have made some significant cultural contributions. Well, not all deviant sexual proclivities are included. Only the deviant sexual proclivities currently and publicly approved by homosexuals and cross-sex pretenders will be included—for now.
Illinois Human Rights Commission Mandates Co-Ed Locker Rooms in Public Schools
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.10.19
The ideological and moral idiocy of “woke” Americans has not yet reached its nadir, but it’s getting close. A complaint was filed with the Illinois Human Rights Commission by a female minor who pretends to be a boy and her parents, Tracy and Michael Yates. She alleged that she was discriminated against based on her “gender identity” when Lake High School District 108 in Roselle, Illinois required her to...
Uncorking Hate for Pink and Blue Parties

Stonestreet: The Sexual Revolution: Its Ideas and Its Victims
By David E. Smith   |   08.05.19
What grounds human dignity? Without the answers that the Christian ideas of inherent dignity and equality provide, the culture turns to sex. In the first session at the 2019 IFI Worldview Conference, John Stonestreet spoke on what it means to...

Forget Street Feces, Liberals Take On Sexist Words Like “Manhole”
07.26.19
It may just be my own personal observation, but for years I’ve felt that conservatives and liberals have two very different, but equally debilitating challenges.  Who wins at the ballot box almost unfailingly hinges upon which can overcome their respective dilemma.
