The Death of Social Media As We Know It

Someone I am close to recently deleted their Facebook; and despite having recently started an account on MeWe, it would appear they deleted that account also. This is not an isolated incident, though. Conservative Americans now feel entirely alien and unwelcome online. Years of being maligned, manipulated, and censored on the biggest platforms have suddenly…More

Being Good Stewards Now

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into office today. I confess, it was a glum day for me personally as I considered the implications of that in the short and mid-term. Yet even so, it is critically important that we not become discouraged or despairing. The question we need to be asking ourselves, one…More

If We Have Another Civil War

These days, it feels like the United States of America is on its way to becoming the Divided States of America in the near-term. Each half of the country possesses a collective distrust and even contempt for the other, and diplomatic negotiations seem to have broken down. I want to lay out a couple of…More

Why They Impeached Trump Twice

The United States House of Representatives voted 232-197 yesterday to impeach President Trump.  The reason why has more to do with deflection and spite than the actions of the president. For one thing, no American president has ever been impeached twice. And the ambition is now for that to be Trump’s legacy. For another thing,…More

The Biblical Case For Free Speech

What is freedom of speech, and is there a biblical principle supporting what we commonly refer to as our right to free speech? Unless we are dumb in the literal sense, we have the ability. We also have the responsibility. Yet freedom is not without reasonable constraint or consequence. And all things being permissible does…More

Buckle Up For Big Tech Censorship

Buckle up, friends. It’s about to get bumpy.  Twitter and Facebook last week permanently banned President Trump from their platforms on the claim he incited protesters to violently assault the Capitol building last week during a joint-session of Congress. Google and Apple have both made moves to remove the free speech social media network Parler…More

Where We Go From Here

President Trump today all but conceded the 2020 election, saying that the objective now is a peaceful transition to a new administration at the end of the month. American conservatives spent the day denouncing and condemning the storming of the Capitol building in Washington DC by protesters. Where do we go from here? The simple…More

The Upside of Stress and The Sound of Music

Looking back on 2020, I realize just how much stress there was. So it seemed good to me to add an audiobook to my queue: The Upside of Stress: Why Stress Is Good for You, and How to Get Good at It, by Kelly McGonigal, PhD.  I also recently watched The Sound of Music with…More

Not Just The Amen… But The A-Women and A-Children

Chris Enloe at The Blaze reports ‘House Democrat ends prayer with ‘amen and a-woman,’ gets destroyed when Ben Shapiro explains the meaning of ‘amen’. Spoiler alert: the root word of ‘amen’ is not ‘men.’  Also, what is behind Hollywood releasing a spate of awfully feminist movies?   Wonder Woman 1984, The Croods: A New Age,…More
