The BBC has unleashed a flagship of ideological imperialism on the schools of England. By a series of videos intended to indoctrinate teachers and students alike in the vagaries of gender ideology, citizens are being coerced to believe that there are 100 genders and that to disagree may land you in prison. This tyrannical episode gives new dimensions to the fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Instead of mere swindling weavers coming to weave an invisible set of clothes, we have swindling gods coming to create a new reality. Instead of being found stupid and unfit for your station if you
On July 4th, 1776, our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence! Thomas Jefferson penned the first draft and then a committee made up of Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston made revisions. The subsequent draft was edited by the whole Congress and afterward signed by 56 of its members. For his contributions, Jefferson credited Locke, Montesquieu, the Scottish Enlightenment and English efforts for civil liberties. We would be wise to harken back to those days to rediscover our roots. Our Founders rightfully declared this land to be a sovereign nation, independent from England. The first
Earlier this month, Democratic front runner Joe Biden reportedly declared that when it comes to his run for the presidency, the “Equality Act would be his top legislative priority, an effort to enshrine LGBTQ protections into the nation’s labor and civil rights laws.” Biden’s announcement brings up a very important question: Is our society strengthened or weakened by the advancement of such “equality” legislation? Certainly Biden and most public institutions think so. However, for those who know the Natural Law and the teaching of the ancients concerning law and language, a very different conclusion emerges. A law, according to Thomas
Earlier this month, the BBC’s Andrew Neil interviewed Ben Shapiro to discuss Shapiro’s new book, “The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great.” The interview began with a series of questions about Trump, Breitbart, abortion and other hot button issues. However, as the interview goes on, the predominant question emerges about whether or not Shapiro is partly responsible for coarsening public discourse over the years. Although Neil was abrasive in his exposition of Shapiro, the question is one worth discussing in depth. Early in the interview, Shapiro got hung up on Neil’s harsh characterization
Nicole Russell, writing for the Washington Examiner, reports on a stunning ruling in favor of religious liberty from an Iowa federal court which ordered the University of Iowa to cease discriminating against religious student groups. There are over 500 student groups on the University of Iowa’s campus, among them a club called Business Leaders in Christ (BLinC) which requires its leadership to believe in Christian values. It was this rule that got them kicked off of the university’s campus last year. The original offense was taken because a gay student tried to obtain a leadership position in BLinC and was rejected.
There has been an incredible push in recent years to propagate “gay marriage” as a civil right. Arguments severed from nature and reason have multiplied as what is really a moral problem has been reduced to a political problem. Furthermore, the softened heads and hardened hearts in our American culture have acquiesced to the agenda, for the energy required to take a stand against this aspect of the sexual revolution is increasingly debilitating. However, as Dr. Susan Berry informs us at Breitbart, despite the tremendous momentum behind the same-sex marriage movement, “according to a report in the Economist, the number
Kimberly Leonard, writing for the Washington Examiner, describes the clash between religious liberty and LGBT rights as it expands to include the issue of adoption. The issue is emotional and increasingly difficult to see clearly. In changing the definitions of marriage and family, the responsibility of raising children has been subordinated to the false notion that people have certain rights to have children. What has been obscured is the well-being of the children themselves, not to mention the rights of religious organizations to act in good conscience as they attempt to find safe and healthy homes for children in need.
Mississippi has been in the news lately thanks to HB 1523, the “Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act.” By enacting this sane law, the state has taken a heroic stance on morality that holds the potential to restore the rightly ordered foundation of civilization, the family. Although this truth been obscured by the rising tide of the sexual revolution, the well-ordered family is a vitally necessary building block for the good society. However, the supporters of this important law are under attack. The opponents to this good bill are legion and a most formidable foe of the family
