Chicago: 3 out of 4 Blacks Born out of Wedlock

Regarding the news of four black teens in Chicago livestreaming their kidnapping and torturing of a white, special-needs youth, CNN’s Don Lemon argued that it wasn’t evil, but rather “bad parenting”. While I vehemently disagree with Don regarding...

No, Don, this was Evil

By now, most of the country has learned about the kidnapping and torture of a white, special-needs teenager by four, young blacks in Chicago. The reason we all know about it? Because one of the four perpetrators decided to live-stream their actions...

Terrifying Beauty Makes no Sense

In our post-modern world, beauty is often said to be in the eye of the beholder. And, yet, I have little doubt that one could pull together Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Buddhists, and others to view a sunset and all who viewed it would agree in...

Why Thanksgiving is on the Last Thursday in November

From the beginning, America has proclaimed national days of thanksgiving. In November of 1783, Congress proclaimed: “[S]et apart the second Thursday in December next, as a day of public thanksgiving, that all the people may then assemble to...

The Last Hurrah of Old, White America?

I've been told that once an approaching tsunami is sensed, many animals move inland to escape destruction. Maybe it's true, maybe it's not. What is true is that old, white America - the America that remembers apple pie and Jesus Christ - senses its...

Christianity Needs to Clean Up its Own House

Comments that one reads or hears from many Christians often revolve around the term “truth”. The “truth” is generally presented as synonymous with Christianity and is used as a way to push back against modern relativism. But what is forgotten is...
