The Monster Is in the Classroom
Schools indoctrinate children as young as eight in race and gender essentialism.
Public institutions funded with public dollars do not exist to groom activists for particular causes, shame children for their immutable traits, or deny them their agency or their childhood. We are talking about eight- and nine-year-old kids who believe in Santa Claus, hide their lost teeth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, and curl... Continue Reading
The Suicide of the Church & the West
The substitution of our feelings and our preferences in the place of God is the suicide of the church.
Burnham perceived the problem with contemporary American Christianity already in the early 1960s—people compartmentalized their faith. Thus, the problem of guilt lingers. Since everyone feels guilty and nobody accepts God’s forgiveness for actual sins, man finds other means of dealing with guilt. Naturally, people search for reasons they feel guilty. Wealth inequality is one area... Continue Reading
America’s Gender Warriors In A Deal With The Devil
The biblical Satan tormented Job by taking away what he needed, while the modern devil torments Faust by offering him whatever he wants.
The biblical Satan tormented Job by taking away what he needed, while the modern devil torments Faust by offering him whatever he wants. Goethe’s protagonist rejects the devil’s blandishments, eschewing the “gold that runs through my fingers like quicksilver, a game that no-one wins, a girl who ogles my neighbor while I embrace her, honor...

Three Cheers for Cultural Christianity
Cultural Christianity would provide us with a theological-moral, socio-political vocabulary and framework without which no cooperation could be possible...
That cultural Christianity in Middletown, Ohio, however poorly practiced and (likely) heterodox, influenced Vance (decades later) to take his faith more seriously is a good outcome, and one that contradicts the mood and narrative of Ortlundism. Among other things, Vance’s testimony discusses how his newfound Catholicism is spurring him on to be a committed, loving... Continue Reading
From Best Friends to Platonic Spouses
Some people are taking their friendships to the next level by saying “I do” to marriages without sex.
In the United States, where marriage is incentivized with tax breaks and other couple privileges, getting married to someone with whom you are not romantically attached affords multiple benefits, she said. “A platonic marriage is more than a passing year with a roommate who has different ideas about kitchen cleanliness,” Ms. Conger said. “A platonic...

New Evidence that Porn Use Destroys Your Ability to Have Real, Loving Relationships
Their findings are not ground-breaking, but once again confirm an enormous body of research detailing how porn use destroys real relationships.
In short: If you use porn, you are destroying your ability to have a healthy, happy relationship with a real person. I could tell you dozens of personal stories that illustrate this point; I’m sure most of you could, too. Again, for anyone who wants to quit porn, visit Covenant Eyes. For anyone who wants more...

A Review of Cancel Culture. Edited by Kevin Donnelly
This new volume on cancerous cancel culture is essential reading:
Those who should be speaking out against all this are not, for various reasons. But it is imperative that they do. As Peta says, “This is a war that needs to be fought. If Australia is to flourish, all of us must be confident that, on balance, we can be proud of our country’s history... Continue Reading
Richard Dawkins Blindsided by The Sexual Spaghetti Monster
And now, the man for so long the hero of the anti-religious and the hard atheists, has been cancelled by the AHA for – wait for it – ““demean[ing] marginalised groups using the guise of scientific discourse”.
In other words, just as he has done much of his adult life, Dawkins pulled the lever on some of the excesses of religious groups, this times the trans movement, especially its insistence that a man who calls himself a woman is actually a woman, and not a man after all. That’s the guts of... Continue Reading
My Response To Ambrose University
They didn’t want to make it known that when they say they are allies with black people—they’re lying.
Ambrose wanted me to speak on what they believe black people are supposed to say about racism. They didn’t want me to speak on what the Bible says about racism. They wanted me to preach critical race theory—they didn’t want me to preach Christ. That’s why they’re offended. I don’t deny that my talk is offensive.... Continue Reading
Don’t Reclaim Your Life
The very fact that everything spiraled out of our control is proof that we never had control to begin with.
God may bring you to a time of great peace in which you can once again freely travel the world and pursue your every passion. But he may instead bring you a time of great suffering that is far beyond anything you experienced in 2020. Instead of wearing a mask you may wear chains, instead... Continue Reading
