By Micah Clark   |   11.16.17
I was given a booklet from Haggai International Ministries called “What in the World is Going On?” It presents the changing demographics of faith around the globe.  Here are some interesting findings:

‘This is Not Your Father’s Culture War’
By John Biver   |   11.10.17
Months before I started alternating between Identity Politics and Paraphilias, incest was featured in one of my articles. At the end of it was this question: “How will society respond when those who practice incest start self-identifying as such and begin clamoring for their ‘rights’?” “Rights” in this context means, among other things, the right to get married, complete tolerance and acceptance by society and for their incestual relationships to be viewed as completely normal.
Leftists Are Making False Claims About the ERA
11.07.17
We have been successful in fighting the ERA in Illinois for many years due in part to the truth of our claims about the problems with the ERA.  When I met with legislators recently, I learned that the supporters of the ERA are trying to blunt our claims by telling the legislators that the ERA will not have any impact on abortion.  You and I know that is simply not true.  State ERA's have already been used in state courts to expand Medicaid funding for elective abortions.
The Equal Rights Amendment and Abortion

10 Reasons to Reject the Equal Rights Amendment
By Kathy Valente   |   10.28.17
In an attempt to advance the “War on Woman” narrative, the pink-hat crowd wants to resurrect the 40-year battle to amend the U.S. Constitution and eliminate all sex distinctions. It is absolutely vital that we convince center-right lawmakers that this legislation requires a NO vote. State lawmakers will be back in Springfield for the veto session November 7-9, and it may come up for a vote during that time.

Where Were Conservatives on Monday Night?

Following a contemptible Facebook post by the now nationally infamous School District U-46 school board member Traci O’Neal Ellis in which she asserted that the American flag means no more to her than toilet paper, Monday’s board meeting saw a...
U.S. House Passes Legislation to Ban Late-Term Abortions
By David E. Smith   |   10.04.17
With a vote of 237 to 189, the U.S. House voted yesterday to pass H.R. 36, the 20-week ban on abortion.  The official title of this important legislation is the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," which restricts most abortions after 20 weeks of gestation, with limited exceptions.  It also specifies that any baby born alive in the process of an abortion should be given the same care as a baby born prematurely.
Hugh Hefner Leaves Behind a Legacy of Sexual Exploitation
By David E. Smith   |   09.28.17
Hugh Hefner helped to usher in an era of sexual deviance, porn addiction, objectification of women, and broken relationships between men and women. Hefner, the bachelor hedonist who brought us female exploitation and sex clubs, was a big part of the sexual revolution of the 50's and 60's. Hefner passed away Wednesday at the age of 91.

Pres. Trump Restores Sanity for Military Personnel
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.26.17
At 5:55 (CDT) this morning, President Donald Trump tweeted the following: After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.
Massive Tax Bill Rejected by Governor Rauner; Back to the House
By David E. Smith   |   07.05.17
Yesterday, the Illinois Senate took up the misguided proposal to massively increase the income taxes of citizens and corporations in Illinois. It is ironic that the General Assembly voted to impose oppressive government taxes on Illinoisans during Independence Day weekend.
