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.

Conservative Speech Be Banned!

Paul Joseph Watson, one of the leading contributors to Infowars, raised his voice in protest and warning: "Facebook has permanently BANNED Infowars. For unspecified 'hate speech.'" Let me share with you some recent examples of Facebook and Twitter and YouTube coming against conservative speech. You can draw your own conclusions.

3 Reasons Why So Many Millennials Love Socialism

It's true that socialist Bernie Sanders is anything but a millennial. And it's true that socialism was popular long before any millennials were born. But there's no doubt that socialism is becoming increasingly popular among young people today. Why?

Israel's Looming Civil War

There is a civil war looming in Israel, but very few are talking about it. I'm not referring to the potential of a civil war between Israelis and Palestinians.

To My Fellow-Christian Conservatives: This Is No Time for a Pity Party

It is true that an ugly anti-Bible tide is rising in America. It is true that many conservative believers – in particular Christian – have been discriminated against, be it by the IRS or by the social media giants. And it is true that there is a growing hostility against our beliefs on university campuses and in places of business. But let's not wallow and complain as if we are helpless and defeated.

7 Reasons Why the Transgender Revolution Will Fail

I earnestly hope and pray that every child and adult struggling with gender identity issues will find wholeness, peace, and happiness from the inside out. At the same time, I wholeheartedly oppose the transgender revolution and predict that, ultimately, it will fail. Here's why.

Musings on the President, the Religious Right, Democrats, and the Supreme Court

The major reason we voted for Trump in large numbers was because we hoped he would keep his word about Supreme Court nominees. And we voted for him because we were voting against Hillary, which leads us to reflect on this stark reality: Had Hillary been elected, President Obama would probably have been able to get his pick for the Court, namely, Merrick Garland, while Hillary would be making her first pick now. The implications for America's future – at least for the next 30-40 years – are massive.

I'm Not Playing the New Game of 'Deny Trump to Prove Your Love for Jesus'

We hear this on a daily, if not hourly basis. Evangelicals have hurt their witness by voting for Trump. Evangelicals have lost their credibility by supporting Trump. Evangelicals can no longer be taken seriously because they're in bed with Trump. And on and on it goes. This has almost become the new orthodoxy: Prove your allegiance to Jesus by denouncing Trump.

President Buhari, Please Stop the Muslim Slaughter of Nigerian Christians

Babies are being hacked to death. Children kidnapped. Women raped and savaged. Young and old burned alive. Houses destroyed, livestock plundered. Muslim herdsmen are massacring their Christian neighbors while the Nigerian media misreports and the Nigerian government refuses to act. Some even claim the government is complicit in these attacks.
