Tolerance Takes a Holiday

eat-more-chicken I love me some Chick-fil-A! In our city, Chick-fil-A has slowly been adding more stores, and with each one, I feel a little more thankful for a family-friendly fast food chain that has some pretty healthy choices on its menus. They also serve up freindliness, courtesy, and smiles. I guess I am not the only one who likes the overall atmosphere of Chick-fil-A. Some customers at one of the newest and largest branches of the chain are feeling pretty good about it, too. According to writer Ginia Bellafante in Read more [...] Continue reading →

Tennessee Bill Forbids Enforcement of Supreme Court Opinion on Same-Sex Marriage

we the people constitution The Tennessee Constitution does not recognize same-sex marriage and the state is not obligated to agree with opinions held by Supreme Court Justices. As we all know, five Supreme Court Justices have recently claimed that there is such a thing as same-sex marriage and that homosexuals have a right to be married. This is a false claim. But, apart from that, it is obviously outside the Supreme Court’s, or any federal court’s, jurisdiction. The Constitution does not define marriage and the legislation Read more [...] Continue reading →

NJ Court: Only Real Harm Constitutes Child Neglect

gavel on white background Parents get some much-needed relief in one state regarding prosecution for child neglect. Pray that common sense spreads to other states. In addition to many stories about children being grabbed by police from public parks, and parents being prosecuted for letting children out of their sight, Mark Horne once even posted about a supervised child who was still being “neglected” according to the police. In that case, the car was running with the air conditioning and an adult was watching the Read more [...] Continue reading →

The God-Ordained Family Government

romeike_family_2 I had the privilege this week of graduating a class of homeschooling students that I taught in our summer school at IOTC. I taught them the Biblical view of Law and Government and our founder’s understanding of the founding documents. What an encouragement it was to see young students from 5th grade and up, eager to learn these essential principles of liberty. I believe one of the few bright spots on the horizon in our land today is the homeschool and Christian school movement. There are Read more [...] Continue reading →

No Soda for Your 6th-Grade Daughter, but School Can Insert an IUD without Telling You

School buses The Seattle school’s no soda rule puts their IUD policy in perspective. Mark Horne wrote about the fact that the Seattle schools are allowed to insert IUDs into eleven-year-old girls without telling their parents, but I want to revisit the issue and point out the seeming insanity. I write “seeming insanity,” because even though there is real moral insanity involved, there is also a clear agenda with rational planning. As the cliché goes, there is a method to their madness. When Mark Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Police State Campaign to Terrorize Poor People Continues

laura browder When you take their children away on a ludicrous charge we can safely deduce that you are working to terrorize poor people. Didn’t Mark Horne already post this story? Nope, that was about a woman who let her child play “hours at a time” at a popular public park with her own mobile phone while the mother worked at McDonald’s. In this new story, a woman got arrested for allowing her children to play thirty feet from her while she attempted to interview for a job. According to Raw Read more [...] Continue reading →

Here Comes the Birth Control "Implant Your Daughter" Crusade

birth control implant The media is pumping up results of using a birth control implant or IUD on teen girls as government policy. They claim it reduced abortions. I love fewer homicides. But there are more civilized ways to reduce abortions. Protecting life from the point of its beginning, offering women help, holding fathers responsible, and raising people into adulthood so that they don’t have sex outside of marriage are not strategies that secular bureaucrats appreciate. The plan we are seeing unfold as an Read more [...] Continue reading →

Add a Bit of Homosexuality to Make Polygamy PC

polyamory San Francisco newspaper site sings praises to polygamy, probably because it started as a Lesbian couple. This story is a bit dated. But since we are seeing this pushed in, and a threesome in Montana is pushing for it, and is quite excited by the prospect, I think it would be good to review how the media promotes perversion and makes it normal. The site is associated with the San Francisco Chronicle. I don’t know if it was ever an actual news story in its print edition Read more [...] Continue reading →

Montana Polygamy and Reason Magazine’s Social Nihilism

polygamyGay Libertarians who act like Montana polygamy is something to celebrate are showing they have an agenda and ideology that goes far beyond their stated political theory. I think people should be free from political coercion to smoke tobacco if they want to do so. I think people should be free to own and possess firearms. That doesn’t mean I would post news of an increase in lung cancer as great news that more people are using their freedom. If there were more guns accidentally fired in homes Read more [...] Continue reading →

Man Files for License to Marry a Second Wife

polygamy It only took five days after the Supreme Court created a constitutional right to homosexual "marriage" for a Montana man to file for a license to marry his second wife. This is not a divorce case. He's still married to the first wife, but he's looking to start a collection. Nathan Collier of Billings said he was inspired by Friday's ruling. That would be the same ruling that the Left had promised could never lead to polygamous marriages. Yellowstone County Courthouse officials initially Read more [...] Continue reading →

Natural Law Won’t Help You, Christian

queen-james-gay-bible Trying to use natural law so that you won’t be accused of reasoning from the Bible is a fool’s mission. It has been pretty common for some Christians and Christian traditions to insist that we should reason about matters of public justice and the social order from “natural law.” Supposedly, natural law is a realm of moral principles that are evident to all reasonable people whether or not they are Christians. Can we please let the Supreme Court’s latest offense end that myth? Look, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Good News for the Future: More Babies!

pregnant tees Women are having more babies, finally. But is it enough? Reading this story at USA Today, you would think that the main point of women having more babies is that it shows the recession has really ended. Here's another sign that the economy is rebounding: More people are having babies. The rate of births among women ages 15 to 44 ticked up 1% from 2013 to 2014. That's the first increase since 2007, the beginning of the recession, according to a study released Wednesday by theNational Center for Read more [...] Continue reading →
