No one grows up with aspirations of government dependency. Social issues give Conservatives the perfect opportunity to prove they're the big brothers to Americans and not the bullies. Can you imagine what America might look like today if the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, had not taken on the social issues of his day, slavery and polygamy?
Imagine being the parents of Sandra Fluke as you observe your child beg for subsidized condoms on national television during the 2012 DNC. How disappointing. No father tells his son "work hard, go to college and get on food stamps as soon as possible." No little girl wearing a princess dress and a blinged out plastic tiara dreams of marrying her prince charming then aborting her firstborn. Leftist are transforming our men into boys, our women into usable goods, and their favorite targets are minorities.
According to BlackGenocide.org, 78 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority communities. Who's going to fight against the existential threat that's being perpetrated against my people due to the Left's social policies? Republicans used to be the definitive answer. more >>
A recent Pew study made headlines last week, revealing, "as values, economics, and gender patterns change . . . the share of American adults that have never been married is at an historic high." According to the report "adults are marrying later in life, and the shares of adults cohabiting and raising children outside of marriage have increased significantly. . . . In addition, shifting public attitudes, hard economic times and changing demographic patterns may all be contributing to the rising share of never-married adults."
The report also reveals that the American people are about evenly split in their opinion about whether or not this trend is harmful to society, but given the mountains of anecdotal and statistical evidence demonstrating the unequivocal societal benefits of marriage, it seems safe to say that this trend has ominous implications for society, regardless of the divided public opinion on the matter.
As disappointing as this trend away from marriage is, it's not really surprising. It is no secret that American society has always venerated the ideal of self-determination. Americans blaze their own trails; we are risk takers and barrier breakers, etc. We have never been satisfied with doing things the way they've always been done, simply because they've always been done that way. more >>

NEW YORK — The issue of domestic violence took center stage earlier this month when video emerged of NFL player Ray Rice punching wife Janay Rice inside of an Atlantic City elevator. The ugly event prompted numerous discussions, including introspective ones among Christians about how church leadership handles, or mishandles cases of domestic abuse. According to one survivor, biblical illiteracy among church leaders actually enabled her abuser.
Autumn Miles, founder of The Blush Network and author of the Appointed: Your Future Starts Now, spoke with The Christian Post about her own past as a domestic abuse victim and how growing up as a preacher's kid in a conservative church actually enabled her abuser.
According to a LifeWay Research survey published in June, pastors seldom preach about domestic violence, although a majority of these leaders consider domestic violence to be a pro-life issue. more >>
