Welfare, Tax Rules Keep Working-Class Americans From Marrying, Experts Say
New report shows 'marriage penalties' fall hardest on the poor.
These disincentives are likely part of the widening “marriage gap,” the increasing disparity in marriage rates between more and less affluent Americans. Research released Wednesday by the Institute for Family Studies found that 42 percent of “lower income” Americans ages 25-50 had never married, compared with 23 percent of “higher income” Americans. That gap has widened precipitously... Continue Reading
Why Sex Education has so Successfully Increased Promiscuity, STDs, Abortion
Sex education, in essence, proceeds directly out of that assumption that children are entirely incapable of abstaining from sex outside marriage.
The nationalizing of childhood — a chilling idea that makes much sense. Give to the State and its education system the task of teaching children what to believe and which values to hold, and you’ve essentially co-opted the family structure. September 8, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — How did we get modern sex education — and... Continue Reading
The Dead-end of Research Justice
In “Cynical Theories,” the authors demonstrate that modern Critical Theory is essentially applied post-modernism.
Critical Theory values epistemic diversity—as if spiritism or superstition are just as valid as rational and evidentiary forms of knowing. But we must insist that reason and evidence are universal values, not white ones. They are universal because they are gifts from God to be used for his glory, not to be discarded as racist...

More than 500 Ethiopian Christians Killed In Targeted Attacks Since June
At least 500 Christians in Ethiopia have been murdered in the last two months by Islamists, according to a report by the Barnabas Fund.
Violence in Oromo has been ongoing since June 30, when popular Oromo singer and celebrity Hachallu Hundessa was shot dead in the capital. His murder revived long-standing tensions between Amhara and Oromo elites – the two largest people groups in the country. In the days following his death, 239 people were killed and more than...

How Everything Became About Race, Gender, and Identity
I think “Cynical Theories” will prove an important resource and rallying point for those who refuse to bow the knee to the ideology of race, gender, and identity.
Yet I am still convinced that Cynical Theories can and will prove an invaluable resource in better understanding the world as it is right now and in helping us understand why Social Justice cannot and will not provide justice and equality for everyone. For that reason it receives my recommendation. You can’t read the... Continue Reading
Gov. Newsom Signs Controversial Bill Into Law Reducing Penalties For Sexual Relations With Minors
California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a controversial new law regarding judges' discretion on whether or not to add individuals to the state’s sex offender registry who have committed sodomy with minors.
Many have criticized the bill, arguing that sex between a teenager and someone 10 years older is never consensual and should always warrant being placed on the sex offender registry. “I cannot in my mind as a mother understand how sex between a 24-year-old and a 14-year-old could ever be consensual, how it could ever...

No Justice, No Peace?
While justice may come before peace in the order of being, peace comes before justice in the order of politics.
Peace and order are possible without justice. Personal experience and human history alike prove that it is so. The order may be vicious—on a football team, in a barracks, in a banana republic. It may well be unjust insofar as it does not render to each what is due to him. But it is only... Continue Reading
National Study Shows Numerous Lost Opportunities For Charity And Religion On Social Media
Most American social media users are not connected with a non-profit or charity on any social media platform; most also are not connected with a religious congregation or their leaders.
“With nearly one out of every four non-donors connected with a charity on social media, that’s a great chance to grow the donor base. But as pervasive as charities are in this society, more than six out of ten Americans still have no social media connection to any charitable organization, and that includes about half...

Judge Bars Defiant Los Angeles Megachurch From Holding Indoor Services
Grace Community Church has defied Los Angeles County’s pandemic health orders must stop holding Sunday worship services indoors, under a judge’s ruling Thursday [09/10/2020].
“While the court is mindful that there is no substitute for indoor worship in the ‘spiritual refuge’ of a sanctuary, the court cannot ignore the County Health Order does not dictate a ban on worship,” Beckloff wrote in his decision granting the county’s request for a preliminary injunction. The order remains in effect until the... Continue Reading
Trump Ends ‘Critical Race Theory’ Training For Federal Employees, Calls It A ‘Sickness’
Trump said the training 'cannot be allowed to continue.'
“It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date “training” government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda,” Vought wrote in the memo to heads of federal agencies and offices. Vought cited reports of executive branch employees being taught in the classes — designed to educate employees about “white... Continue Reading
