The latest example comes courtesy of Marxist and feminist Naomi Wolf. The thesis of her latest book is that Occidental Culture has a history of violently censoring differing forms of love in order to preserve the supposedly oppressive patriarchy. (When reading differing forms of love, understand that this is feminist double-speak, meaning fornication, adultery, homosexuality and other forms of sexual deviancy.) There’s just one problem: it’s all based on a gross misreading of history.Continue reading
The simple answer is an emphatic “No”. However, in an age where simpletons have been indoctrinated to ignore evidence, substance and context, the answer requires elucidation.
Unless the reader has been living in complete isolation during the last few days, he has become aware of the mass hysteria centered on President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. According to the legacy media and many other subversives within and without government, Trump’s meeting with Putin and his subsequent remarks during Monday’s press conference are proof positive that he is a traitor, a reincarnation of Benedict Arnold.

It was reported a few days ago that more than 50 “pillars of evangelicalism” had been invited to a private gathering at Wheaton College. When asked what the intention of the event was, Doug Birdsall, an organizer of the exclusive meeting, answered somewhat candidly:
“When you Google evangelicals, you get Trump…When people say what does it mean to be an evangelical, people don’t say evangelism or the Gospel. There’s a grotesque caricature of what it means to be an evangelical.”
Another organizer of the assemblage, Darrell Bock (director of “cultural engagement” at Dallas Theological Seminary), described the get-together using much more intentionally ambiguous terminology:
“It is an attempt to try and show how we should be thinking in such a way that our theology is what is the central concern versus our political commitments…We have some people who are going to be doing some presentations about how they see the current situation and we are going to talk about it…The concern is with the church expressing itself clearly about its theological commitment and its theological character in the midst of the environment we are in. Part of the point of the meeting is to have a conversation to see where we are and if there is agreement on how to proceed.” [Emphasis mine.] Continue reading
Has the reader ever heard the following declarations or their variants?
“A seventeen-year-old criminal cannot be judged as an adult because his brain isn’t fully developed yet.”
“The child has ADHD. He’s too active.”
”This ethnic group’s IQ levels are below the national average. Hence, it’s to be expected that, generally speaking, they will conduct themselves in such an illogical and barbarous manner.”
“Free will is an illusion ingrained in us all by evolution.”
“Mental disorders are neurological in nature. Chemical imbalances are the cause of behavior deficiencies.”
These and similar notions are different faces of the same pernicious idea – materialism. This concept is demeaning and rejects the ultimate reality of the human essence because it reduces all activity to purely physical processes, including thoughts, emotions and character. The creed’s main goal is to dismiss the Biblical God as the Principal Cause of all and discount His revelation about our origins and makeup.
The public boycotts have been mounting, justifiably and encouragingly so, against organizations that insist on supporting immoral thought and behavior either directly or indirectly.
First it was Target, after they announced that their bathrooms and fitting rooms would be open to “transgender” persons. Then it was Shakespeare in the Park, depicting what a Trump assassination would look like if interpreted along the lines of Julius Caesar. It has culminated with the NFL and its insistence that players be allowed to disrespect our national anthem and Old Glory. Continue reading
Black Lives Matter co-founder and race-baiting huckster Patrisse Cullors is out and about, taking advantage of favorable press coverage to talk about “hate speech” not being protected under the U.S. Constitution. Continue reading
I do not consider it an overstatement or presumptuous to assume that the reader has encountered their share of venomous sinners once and again. You’re familiar with the type: One tries to convince them that a certain immoral thought process or behavior is contrary to God’s Word and therefore perilous. The reply is mostly always the same: either a look of condescension or belittling words which unmistakably inform you that an insane asylum is missing a resident lunatic – and you are that lunatic!
