How Do People Know that Antonin Scalia is Wrong about God?

Here’s the Associated Press headline: “Scalia says God is “very good” to US because US honors him, dismisses religious neutrality.” There are a couple of different issues entangled in the headline. The story  brings up some others that just confuse the issue. It tells us that Antonin Scalia is “controversial,” as if this implies something is wrong with his view. Worse, right at the end it tells readers of “comments he made during an affirmative action case, questioning whether some black students Read more […]

Lawsuit Claims Graveyard Cross is a Microaggression

In  our culture the story of Jesus dying on the cross has become representative of self-sacrifice. Lots of people don’t believe in Jesus’ deity, his resurrection, or the power of his death to have any role in God’s forgiving sins. But they do see his death as a willing martyrdom. Lots of Christians have wanted to be buried, and have buried fellow Christians, in places with the symbol of the cross. Some of these Christians have fought and died defending the United States. These people have been Read more […]

Would-be Teacher Admits He Approves Adult-Child Sex. How Many Others?

The Associated Press reports, “Federal appeals court: Hawaii man can’t be teacher because of his views on sex with minors.” This was absolutely the right decision, though I expect the precedent will be used against Christians (see below). The University of Hawaii didn’t violate First Amendment rights when it denied a teaching certificate for a Caltech-educated aspiring high school teacher who expressed views condoning adults having sex with minors, a panel of federal appeals court judges ruled Read more […]

Christmas Banned in Bethlehem

The town is Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Gotta love the irony. The Daily Caller reports, The town named after the birthplace of Jesus Christ has banned signs celebrating the holidays at an intersection in the town that has become a local battleground for the War on Christmas. Officials from Bethlehem, New York had a “Happy Hanukkah” sign and a “Merry Christmas” sign removed from a busy intersection and have refused to put up any new holiday signs out of fear the signs would be breaking Read more […]

Police Told to Change Their Behavior!

I remember more than once being outraged over the way Christian chaplains were ordered to hide their crosses while stationed in an Islamic country, or at the military burning Bibles. We’ve come quite far since then. From the Independent Sentinel: “Texas Politicians to Police: No Reading the Bible at Lunch and No Displaying the National Motto Either.” What do you think of a politician telling you what you cannot read at lunch? How about politicians banning the National Motto? A group of police Read more […]

Free Speech for Real

Sometimes, I wonder if free speech is even a thing any more.  It seems that students on college campuses no longer protest because their right to free speech is being infringed upon; rather they are upset when people are allowed to speak their minds freely.  They are actually asking “the man” to intervene and regulate speech. What’s up with that? A recent story of a court battle in the trademark arena has given me hope, though.  The courts ruled that the Asian rock group, the Slants, cannot Read more […]

The Political Significance of Christmas

In their effort to make a point, those who discuss law and government and politics for a living often miss the most crucial – the most critical point of all. So, as we celebrate Christmas, this is a good time to take a deep breath and revisit first principles. We should remember the political significance of Christmas. Now don’t get distracted by arguments that early Christians latched onto a pre-existing pagan holiday to establish the date of Christmas. That may be true, but it is a distraction Read more […]

Judge Doesn’t Have a Problem with Harvesting Baby Parts

If you haven’t yet realized our country is ruled by bloodthirsty psychopaths, here’s another piece of evidence. An Associated Press story ran with the tagline, “Judge: No evidence of crimes in recordings of abortion group.” Recordings secretly made by an anti-abortion group at meetings of abortion providers do not show criminal activity and could put the providers at risk, a federal judge said Friday, citing the recent shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic. U.S. District Judge William Read more […]

Law School Professor Wants to End Free Speech because ISIS

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, the whole world made a big deal about free speech. It was mostly hypocritical posturing in France, and Liberals who contribute to Slate.com are just as bad. Eric Posner, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, is also the author of a book called The Twilight of International Human Rights Law. I wonder if he noticed the irony, as he wrote, Never before in our history have enemies outside the United States been able to propagate genuinely Read more […]

Woman Ordered to Abort

My body, my right! We’ve heard the slogan time and again. People pretend that because a baby is within a woman’s body that the baby is part of her body. It’s a lie but it is an abortion-rights advocate’s creed. Notice, this has nothing to do with the genetic connection. The husband who contributes half the genetic material to the baby has no say in the decision. According to the slogan, “Abortion is a decision between a woman and her doctor,” a doctor–even a male doctor–is more important Read more […]

Censorship is OK When Liberals Call For It

Remember times when Christians called for the banning of books that promote homosexuality or immoral sexual lifestyles?  How about when Christians tried to stop the placement of the Harry Potter books in local libraries?  Whether you agree with banning such books or not, the fact is, all Christians were lumped into the “ignorant hick” class by the liberal intelligentsia of the day. Fast forward to today in Philadelphia.  Last week, Friends’ Country School in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, Read more […]

Cincinnati will Cancel First Amendment for Sake of LGBT ‘Rights’

It is important to remember, when reading this story, that Republican Presidential candidates agree with this enforcement of LGBT dogma. We are facing a real revolution–not just a sexual revolution but an overturning of freedom with a regime that uses force to ensure ideological conformity. And just like ISIS conquering territory, the civil war is waged city by city. Thus, the headline: “Cincinnati to consider ban on reparative therapy for LGBT youth.” City Council Member Chris Seelbach said Read more […]
