Big Brother is Watching

At Shawnee State University in Ohio, a public university, a biological male student complained because Nicholas Merriweather, a university professor, refused to address him/her as Ms.  The transgender student said he now considers himself/herself to be a female and believed that the professor should address him as such.  The professor professed himself to be a […]

At the Gates

Wake up, you defenders of liberty.  The enemy is at the gates. I discovered this article on the internet, but I do not know who wrote it and from what source I extracted it.  I have tried in vain to locate it again.  It is so good that I decided to print it verbatim.  My […]

The Assault Continues

The war on traditional cultural norms never ceases.  In previous posts I wrote about “LGBT Issues” (Nov 6, 2018) and “The Real War’ (Oct 29, 2019).  Recently, the Democrat controlled House of Representatives put the so-called Equality Act high on its list of priorities, and its effect could be devastating to Christians in America.  In […]

Nature vs Nurture

The nature vs nurture debate rages on.  Nowhere is it more evident than in  changes in people’s attitudes about homosexuality and their reaction to recent challenges to  traditional  definitions of gender.  It is a muddled world out there.  The fundamental question is the extent to what particular aspects of our behavior are a product of […]

LGBT Activism

This post contains thoughts that I have expressed in previous articles. The LGBT community is relatively small but extremely active.  Regarding the modern era, until the latter half of the 20th Century it had only existed in the shadows of Western society. Now it is in the open.  It has strong support from the entertainment […]

The Real War

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness.”  This is a long post, but I believe it is an important one.  I hope you will take time to read it. As a young man I was taught by my parents and my church to […]

Name Calling or Solution Seeking

Ogden Nash once remarked, “We’ve made a lot of progress lately.  I’m not certain that it is always in the right direction.” I often think of that remark when I consider the so-called liberal-progressive movement in the United States. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Benjamin Carson recently visited California as the Federal government considers […]

Buttigieg vs Pence

The recent war of words between Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Vice President Mike Pence is an excellent illustration of one of the fundamental differences between liberal/progressive and conservative thinking. Buttigieg was the one who started the war.  In an evident attempt to distinguish himself from his rivals for the Democratic presidential […]

Who is the Bigot?

Bigotry is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “having and expressing strong, unreasonable beliefs and disliking other people who have different beliefs or a different way of life.”  Merriam-Webster describes a bigot as “a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices — especially one who regards or […]
