It strikes one as an episode of the Twilight Zone to think that in the present moral climate, as The Washington Post reports, the Department of Justice would argue in defense of a Christian baker’s right to not bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding.” The enthusiasm to promote same-sex relations and “gay marriage” has […]


Donald Trump is often mocked for his mantra “fake news,” not because he is wrong but because the two-syllable sound-bite is inarticulate and leaves itself wide open for pedantic criticism.
