Trump’s Message of Patriotism May Be What’s Most Appealing to Voters 

I am one of that small but significant group of Americans who voted for Obama in 2008 and Trump in 2016.    Now granted, I’m probably even a bit of an outlier in this group as I’m not exactly a rust-belt blue-collar worker whose core political concerns boil down to job security and the economy...

The Declaration of Independence and Secular Revisionist History

I grew up believing that the United States was a paradise for social and political liberals who didn’t want the big, mean church to tell them what to do.     Freedom of religion, I was taught, was state-enforced freedom from religion. I bought the oft-repeated lie that the First Amendment protected the state from...

You’re Not Afraid to Speak the Truth Online. But Are You Sharing the Gospel?

I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest stumbling blocks over the last five years or so has been other people’s stupidity on the internet.   OK, so just calling other image-bearers of God “stupid” is probably a pretty good demonstration as to how social media can bring out the worst in me....

Encouraging Traditional Womanhood Is A Good Thing, But Encouraging Biblical Womanhood Is Better

As long as I’ve been a believer, I’ve been an adamant supporter of biblical, submissive womanhood.   I have always been home with my children, and I take great pleasure in cooking and cleaning for my family.   I follow #tradwife and #tradlife hashtags on Instagram and enthusiastically support the neo-housewife movement that has gained...

Black Families Matter

There is something that those who profess to care the most about the black community never seem to remember to mention.   The nuclear family.   The family unit is the backbone of any strong, moral civilization, and yet not only to progressives who profess to desire advancement within the black community fail to mention...

Do You Worship God, or the State? How to Achieve True Justice and Equality

If you’re a Christian, then you believe that every member of humanity was made in the image of God. Our Founding Fathers also believed this, and formed a nation very uniquely founded on the recognition of this fact and the natural rights endowed to us by our Creator.   If you are a Christian and...

Community-Based Policing Is More, Not Less Likely to Violate Citizens’ Civil Rights

As the nation continues to grapple with the continued fallout of George Floyd’s death, a growing number of activists and elected officials alike are having earnest conversations about defunding and abolishing police departments in their communities.   The proposal is to replace the traditional police departments with what is being called “community-based” policing, something that...

Progressives Would Rather Silence Their Intellectual Opponents Than Simply Debate Them

Last week, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton (R) penned an op-ed for The New York Times in which he argued in favor of using the troops to control the widespread unrest which have gripped several major American cities since the death of George Floyd.   It was a simple, well-reasoned argument explaining that the Insurrection Act,...

Our Nation Cannot Survive Without the Shared Morality It Was Founded Upon

When our Founding Fathers built the philosophical framework for what would become this great nation of ours, it was based on several major presuppositions that have since been dismantled by the anarchistic wasteland of postmodern philosophy and critical theory.   One of these presuppositions was that there is a common, objective definition of right and...

If We’re Going To Listen to Black Voices, Let’s Listen to ALL Black Voices

(Image above is from December 13, 2014: Protesters march against police shootings and racism during a rally in Washington, DC)   I don’t know who needs to hear this, but the color of your skin does not determine your ideology or your ability to form your own opinions.   If there’s one lesson I hope...
