The Real Reason for the Left’s Double Standard on Hate Speech
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.15.18
Why is it that organizations like the SPLC can designate conservative Christians as hate groups while ignoring radical leftists like Antifa? Why is it that Facebook and Google and YouTube and Twitter appear to punish conservatives disproportionately for alleged violations of community guidelines? The answer is as disturbing as it is simple. The left believes it is so morally and intellectually superior to the right that it can see nothing wrong with its extreme positions and hostile words. Is it wrong to be intolerant of bigots? Is it wrong to hate (or even punch) a Nazi?

Why is it considered "liberal" to compel others to say or fund things they don't believe? That's a question raised by three Supreme Court decisions this year.

SCOTUS Allows Lower Court to Ban prayer from Public Square
07.03.18
In case you thought that the potential to flip Justice Kennedy’s seat alone will bring us back to the constitutional promised land, think again. So long as the lower courts are not restrained, we will never return to the Constitution and the principles of the Declaration of Independence.

By Dr. Joey Krol   |   06.05.18
In the last several years, we’ve seen a strong movement towards unrighteous in our country.  A look at the headlines, news stories, social media and other forms of media, reminds us that this world is not our home.  However, while this world is not our home, we still need to live, work and be an ambassador for Christ.
