A Gender-Neutral Army? An Army Neutralized by Gender?

| May 23, 2013

It’s not what most people imagine that gender neutral means and it’s not what it is supposed to mean because Congress defined gender-neutral as being “evaluated on the basis of common, relevant performance standards, without differential standards of evaluation on the basis of gender.” But by leaving “relevant” in there, the door was open for […]

Group urges parents to keep kids home for Harvey Milk Day

| May 23, 2013

Some parents in California say they will be keeping their kids home from school Wednesday because teachers plan to commemorate Harvey Milk Day. Harvey Milk was the first openly gay person elected to public office in California. Milk was elected to the San Francisco County Board of Supervisors in 1978. He is seen as a […]

Judith Grossman: A Mother, a Feminist, Aghast

| April 18, 2013

At least one feminist realizes her movement has pushed the pendulum way, way too far in the opposite direction: I am a feminist. I have marched at the barricades, subscribed to Ms. magazine, and knocked on many a door in support of progressive candidates committed to women’s rights. Until a month ago, I would have […]

Poor Excuses for a Butcher: Gosnell is the Typical Abortionist

| April 17, 2013

First there was a complete media blackout on the Gosnell case (except in pro-life circles), and now that liberal outlets have been forced to comment on this case, they blame the pro-life movement for “creating” abortionists like Gosnell. This is so dumbfoundingly illogical and without any basis in fact. Easy access to abortion begets more […]

Pro-Gay Theology: Does the Bible Approve of Homosexuality? by Steve Golden

| April 4, 2013

One of the most pervasive issues of our time has been the movement to embrace homosexual behavior, same-sex “marriage,” and the marred versions of masculinity and femininity that accompany this lifestyle. References sympathetic to the homosexual lifestyle appear now in books, on television, in films, and in video games and graphic novels. Even the popular […]

Gay Marriage as a Civil Right – Are Wrongs Rights? – R. Albert Mohler Jr.

| March 28, 2013

We should have seen it coming. Back in 1989 two young activists pushing for the normalization of homosexuality coauthored a book intended to serve as a political strategy manual and public relations guide for their movement. In After the Ball: How America Will Conquer its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s, authors Marshall […]

Testimony of Col. John W. Ripley to the Presidential Commission on the Assignment of Women in the Armed Forces

| February 2, 2013

This testimony is nearly 20 years old but so relevant right now: I feel I have a basis upon which to comment, and I would like to read this statement: First of all, this subject should not be argued from the standpoint of gender differences. It should not be argued from the standpoint of female […]

Why men fight

| January 30, 2013

Another excellent piece from Mercatornet: Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, proclaimed that, “The time has come to rescind the direct combat exclusion rule for women and eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service,” Why is this necessary? How did such a “time” arrive upon us? According to theWall Street […]

Co-ed Combat and Cultural Cowardice

| January 26, 2013

Thank God for bold John Piper: If I were the last man on the planet to think so, I would want the honor of saying no woman should go before me into combat to defend my country. A man who endorses women in combat is not pro-woman; he’s a wimp. He should be ashamed. For […]

The Need to Breed

| January 9, 2013

Here is a great post from Get Along Home that bluntly states an obvious truth that our short sighted, “me centered” modern society seems to be oblivious to: We don’t seem to understand (and by “we”, I mean “not me”) that children are a literal investment. You have to put in the work to get […]

No Shades of Grey: A Black and White Seduction of the Mind

| July 15, 2012

Sexual sin hurts. It mangles and poisons. It attacks the potential beauty and closeness of one of God’s most mysterious gifts: The one flesh relationship of sexual intimacy. In addition to defrauding our neighbor, when we engage in fornication or adultery we are in a real way self-destructing (Rom. 1:24-27). While most Christians understand the […]

From Feminism to Gay ‘Marriage’

| May 11, 2012

In an article I wrote for the Colson Center, titled “How Gay ‘Marriage’ Became Plausible”, I explored some of the issues that are upstream of the same-sex marriage debate. What are the plausibility structures that have led to a state of affairs whereby people are even willing to discuss something as absurd as changing the […]

Should Churches Push Contraception?

| May 6, 2012

From Boundless.org: Young evangelical leaders at the recent Q conference in DC were asked, as part of a panel on reducing abortions, this question:  “Do you believe that churches should advocate contraception for their single 20-somethings?” The “yes” crowd was 66 percent large. Only 34 percent said no. Wow! What does one make of this? What’s remarkable […]

More Proof That Birth Control May Be Bad News for Breast Cancer

| April 9, 2012

These stats continue to pile up: [R]esearch has gone and found another lovely side effect of the birth control shot: A 50 percent higher risk of breast cancer. Women who used the shot of synthetic hormones for at least a year had double the risk of getting breast cancer, according to the study published in […]

Put No Confidence in Princes

| April 4, 2012

Puff, puff, puff … just one more step, just one more house! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. I felt like the Little Engine that Could as I trudged up and down my neighborhood streets with five children in tow, pushing the baby in the stroller. It was 1992, […]
