Should Your Past Sins Disqualify You Today?

Supreme Court nominee Brent Kavanaugh has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman more than 35 years ago, a charge which he "categorically and unequivocally" denies. Also implicated in the charge was Kavanaugh's teen friend at that time, Mark Judge, who also denies the accusation. But what if the charges are true? Do they disqualify Kavanaugh today?

If Bob Woodward Is Right How Should We Vote?

If Bob Woodward's Trump-bashing, mega-bestseller is true, how should conservatives vote in the midterms? If the White House is in chaos, led by an unqualified and out of control president, what course should we take on November 6?

The Left's Hatred of Mike Pence Undermines Its Hatred of Donald Trump

We know why President Trump is so hated. We've heard it time and again. The man is out of control. He's a threat to national security. He has damaged our international standing. He's unstable. He's volatile. But I don't believe for a minute that these are the real reasons the left wants to get rid of President Trump. I say that because many on the left fear Vice President Pence even more, pledging to get rid of him once they get rid of Trump.

Was Serena Williams Treated Unfairly Because She Is a Woman?

Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes of this generation, male or female. What is in dispute is whether a tennis official treated her unfairly because of her sex. Are women sometimes treated unfairly or held to a different standard, be it in sports or the larger society? Without a doubt.

Enough With All the Anonymity

It's one thing if you're writing anonymously as a covert agent working within North Korea or an embedded spy in an ISIS enclave. In that case, it makes perfect sense to hide your identity. But to write an op-ed for the New York Times as a senior White House official working to "thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations" – that goes entirely beyond the pale.

Does the Younger Generation Want to Burn Us at the Stake?

In response to our Bible-based video "Can You Be Gay and Christian?" someone posted, "My dude you can't say this stuff in 2018 my fellow generation is coming to burn you at the stake and I won't join in but you bet imma just sit back and watch." That's right. It's 2018. Bigoted views like this can no longer be tolerated. It's time to burn the antiquated heretics at the stake.

This Is Not Satire. An Open Pedophile Is Running for Congress

A man who wants to legalize incest is running for public office and is not ashamed. This should not surprise us in the least. We have been heading in this direction for decades now. Some have called for sympathy and understanding for pedophiles. After all, we are reminded, they did not choose their feelings, and they are people like everyone else.

Do Christians Really Want Pablum?

I'm aware, of course, that there are mega-churches famous for failing to preach against sin. And I'm aware that far too many leaders avoid addressing cultural issues like the plague. And to the extent that these ministries see "success," this would indicate that there is always a large audience for a non-confrontational, baby food gospel. But there are plenty of Christians who have no interest in pablum.

The Real Reason for the Left's Double Standard on Hate Speech

Why is it that organizations like the SPLC can designate conservative Christians as hate groups while ignoring radical leftists like Antifa? Why is that Facebook and Google and YouTube and Twitter appear to punish conservatives disproportionately for alleged violations of community guidelines? The answer is as disturbing as it is simple.
