By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   06.14.18
It starts with one outraged person. Then, the outrage gets reported. Next, it becomes a story. Then it becomes a cause. It’s happening today, right in front of our eyes. Earlier this week I reported how YouTube had come under...

By David E. Smith   |   06.13.18

I’m No Murphy Brown
By Pat Hickey   |   06.08.18
I hated being a single parent. Still do. I am sure my grown children agree that being raised by Homer Simpson was horrible. They are all healthy and productive members of society, despite being raised by an ogre, in no...
I’m Glad My Parents Were Boring
By Jonathan Lewis   |   05.31.18
Today my wife and I are celebrating our seventh anniversary. I know seven years isn’t very long compared to many couples, but it’s certainly been long enough for us to experience our share of life changes, special moments, and challenging times. Our culture has become increasingly mixed up in its portrayal of marriage.
The Myth of the Boring, Unhappy, Long Term Marriage
By Micah Clark   |   05.26.18

By Robert Knight   |   05.18.18
It’s official. The Mormons have finally figured out that they can’t do business with the devil. Bully for them. More specifically, the Salt Lake City-based denomination is flipping off the demonic forces assigned by Beelzebub to wage war on God’s...
Where Corporations Stand on the Issues? There’s an App for That
By Andrew Willis   |   05.17.18

Torching Marriage
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.07.18
Let’s try a little thought experiment: Let’s imagine that now, after legally recognizing intrinsically non-marital same-sex unions as “marriages,” we notice that there remains a unique type of relationship that is identified by the following features: it is composed of two people of major age who are not closely related by blood, are of opposite sexes, and engage in the only kind of sexual act that is naturally procreative. We decide that as language-users there must be a term to identify this particular, commonplace, and cross-cultural type of relationship. Let’s call it “huwelijk.”

Worldview Work Isn’t Optional
By John Stonestreet   |   04.25.18

Guns or Family Dysfunction Cause of Mass Killings?
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.20.18
With each horrific mass killing, “progressives” preach against guns. Again and again, when a man mows down innocent people, liberals put gun-ownership in their sights, which is like looking at the problem of teens who cut themselves and angrily proclaiming...

By Micah Clark   |   03.29.18
The nation is in the midst of a debate over gun control and to a lesser extent, mental health issues, stemming from another school shooting. Not to diminish those two issues, researcher Bradford Wilcox points out that nearly every shooting...
