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...

By Laurie Higgins   |   07.30.19
Illinois Family Institute is urging our readers to watch and share this critically important conversation between Pastor Doug Wilson and Pastor Derek Buikema on the science-denying, anti-Christian “trans”-ideology. Doug Wilson is the pastor of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho; theologian;...
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.
Pritzker’s Plans to “Trans” Schools
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.24.19
Former Illinois state senator Daniel Biss recently guest-hosted a culturally regressive radio program titled “Live, Local & Progressive” in which he sought to draw attention to yet another God-forsaken executive order (2019-11) from Illinois’ morally bankrupt governor, J.B....
A Mythological Woman & His Hirsute Dojigger
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.20.19
The "trans" cult argues that biological sex is unimportant and always in every context and activity subordinate to "gender identity," which is constituted by subjective, internal feelings about one's "maleness" or "femaleness." In the "trans" mythology, "gender identity" has nothing to do with biological sex. Therefore, a human with XY chromosomes and a natal penis can be a woman if he so conceives himself to be. If he dreams it, he is she. No need to get rid of any appendages...
Planned Parenthood and the “Trans” Cult
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.18.19
As many have heard, Planned Feticide (known euphemistically as Planned Parenthood) just gave the heave-ho to Dr. Leana Wen as its president. One of the reasons for the unceremonious dumping of Wen after only 8 months on the job is reportedly that she was disinclined to use politically correct language for people who pretend to be the sex they are not and never can be. Perhaps recently elected member of the Planned Parenthood National Board of Directors "Meghan" Stabler—who was elected six months after Wen’s appointment—had a little sumpin' sumpin' to do with that.

‘Elite’ Pedophiles Panicking after Jeffrey Epstein Arrest
By Timothy J. Dailey   |   07.10.19
Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein socialized with the rich and powerful, harboring a sordid hidden life that came to light in 2008, landing him in prison for the solicitation of underage girls for sex.  Epstein was infamous for his private Boeing 727 airliner nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” which ferried guests including Bill Clinton and a bevy of young girls allegedly pressed into prostitution at his Caribbean estate dubbed “Orgy Island.”
Klein v. Oregon: Religious Liberty & Freedom of Speech vs. Gay Rights
07.09.19
Among recent actions by the U.S. Supreme Court, a four-sentence order may set the stage for the court to eventually address the collision between free speech and religious freedom on one hand and gay rights on the other. The order voided a judgment by the state of Oregon that had imposed a $135,000 fine on Portland-area bakery owners—the Kleins—for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. Oregon maintained that its anti-discrimination law condemned such a rebuff even when the bakery owners’ religious convictions run counter to participating in a same-sex wedding.
In Quest to Normalize Polyamory American Psychological Association Loses All Credibility
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.08.19
No one with an iota of integrity, a morsel of morality, or a pittance of professionalism should ever cite the American Psychological Association (APA) again. Why not, you may be wondering. Well, the APA has a special area called Division 44 (kind of like Nevada’s Area 51). Division 44 is also called “The Society for the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (SPSOGD).” Division 44 was founded “in 1985 by a group of pioneering LGB psychologists and their allies,” and one of its primary purposes is to “promote the development and delivery of affirmative psychological services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender and gender nonconforming and queer people.” In the service of this purpose, last year Division 44...
Celibate but Compromised “Gay Christianity” Pushes into Conservative Churches
By Wendy Wilson   |   07.06.19
The more you look into the “gay but celibate” movement advancing rapidly into once theologically orthodox Christian churches, the more disheartened you become by church leaders who have been slow to counter it, or worse, are embracing it. The conservative...
Bigot Bezos and Amazon Ban Book on Reparative Therapy
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.05.19
You’ve probably heard homosexual activists and “trans”-cultists mock the idea that Christians in First World countries are or ever will be persecuted. Well, here’s a news item direct from the expanding “That is NOT persecution” file: Catholic clinical psychologist Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Sr.’s books on reparative therapy for those who experience unwanted same-sex attraction are now banned from Amazon.
Harming Children from Toddlerhood to Adulthood
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.02.19
Did you know it’s no longer culturally acceptable for girls to say they want to date only boys? And did you know it’s no longer acceptable for young men to say they want to marry only young women? Believing that the biological sex as revealed in anatomy of one’s romantic/sexual partners matters is now deemed hatefully “transphobic.” The ravenous, pro-“trans” behemoth smells the blood of children in our murky cultural waters and is hurtling toward them with blinding speed aided by the ignorance (perhaps willful) and cowardice of decent people—people who prefer not to hear about the grotesqueries the “trans” cult has in store for our little ones.
When ‘Equality’ Means Anything but Reality
By Robert Knight   |   06.29.19
The conceit of our age is that we can alter reality at a whim. We’re really that smart and powerful. We not only can control the planet’s weather, but we can defy God’s essential design for life, reflected in nature...
