The Hypocrisy of Prosecuting Homeschoolers

Texas is prosecuting homeschoolers — two parents — but the outcome of the case will determine the fate of everyone. This seems to be a perfect storm. Allegations against the parents include a form of last-days madness which meant they didn’t think their children needed to learn anything because of “the rapture.” The parents on the other hand were involved in a dispute with a business partner who made the accusations against them. According to the Associated Press: The El Paso school Read more […]

The Stronger the Family, The Stronger the Economy

Research shows that there is a solid correlation between strong families and strong economies.  A report produced by the American Enterprise Institute posits 4 basic  points showing how family life affects a society’s economic structure. Higher levels of marriage, and especially higher levels of married-parent families, are strongly associated with more economic growth, more economic mobility, less child poverty, and higher median family income at the state level in the United States. When Read more […]

Population Control Policy Backfires–China’s One-Child Policy Comes to an End

The news of China stopping its one-child policy seems a cause for celebration to anyone who is pro-life.  The policy of population control has been in place for nearly 40 years and has killed millions of children.  It has left a nation bereft of a generation to take their people into the future, and now they are scrambling to recreate their loss of human resources. God has stopped this atrocity, and that is truly a reason to celebrate.  However, the motives and facts behind the change is mind Read more […]

Planned Parenthood Thinks Very Highly of Itself

Right at the start, there are two things wrong with this situation.  I am sure there are more, but we will just consider the two for the sake of time. First, there is this statement as written by Kevin McGill for ap.org: “Planned Parenthood had challenged the state’s right to end the funding for cancer screenings, gynecology exams and other health services.” Mr. McGill wrote a fine sentence, it is the content of it that is the problem.  Why does Planned Parenthood get to challenge the state’s Read more […]

Tolerance Takes a Holiday

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 […]

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

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 […]

NJ Court: Only Real Harm Constitutes Child Neglect

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 […]

The God-Ordained Family Government

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 […]

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

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 […]

The Police State Campaign to Terrorize Poor People Continues

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 […]

Here Comes the Birth Control “Implant Your Daughter” Crusade

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 […]

Add a Bit of Homosexuality to Make Polygamy PC

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 politico.com, and a threesome in Montana is pushing for it, and Reason.com 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 […]
