Tomorrow, we red-blooded Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving. We admittedly have many holidays celebrating our national identity: Memorial Day for fallen patriots, Veterans’ Day for those who gave their youths to freedom, and the Fourth of July to celebrate our independence. However, Thanksgiving is special because it arguably centers on gratitude for one particular constitutional right: the freedom of religion. While images of a sumptuous autumnal feast between Pilgrims and Squanto’s men may be more fable than fact, that does not diminish the importance of the holiday. From Catholics disembarking the Ark and Dove in Maryland to the prolific Massachusetts Puritans,
Many of us are familiar with 1 Corinthians 13, a passage of Scripture that talks about love: “Love is patient, love is kind…” Now, a department at the University of Oklahoma would add another item to the list: “Love is ensuring abortion access.” The University of Oklahoma’s Department of Women’s and Gender Studies is co-sponsoring an event titled, “Fighting for Abortion Access is Love.” Other co-sponsors are the department’s Center for Social Justice and a nonprofit group, Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice. A description of the event states: We fight because we know that without the ability to control our
Still reeling from a holiday celebrating that genocidal maniac, Christopher Columbus, schools in Seattle are about to dole out another heaping spoonful of how white men, colonization, and all things related to Western Civilization are bad. Very, very bad. Not only did white men and the growth of Western Civilization result in disease, pestilence, slavery, and all manner of human suffering, it also ruined math. Yes, math. But fear not: the Seattle school district is on top of it and intends to rectify past wrongdoings by “re-humanizing” K-12 math classes, mixing in an ethnic studies approach to multiplication tables. According to an
Last Friday, an activist interrupted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) town hall event, provoking mixed feelings of amusement and horror across the internet. Channeling the Bronx congresswoman’s penchant for generating controversy with eccentric claims about climate change — such as her suggestions that prehistoric viruses will inundate the face of the earth as glaciers melt and that Miami will soon become a latter-day Atlantis — the disruptor proclaimed that Americans need to begin eating human infants to prevent a climate catastrophe. Lately, climate-frenzied youths have formed a movement they call “#NoFutureNoChildren.” Spurred on by overpopulation conspiracies and raging pubescent eco-nihilism, Generation Z-ers
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
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is many things. The Democratic primary candidate is fluent in Norwegian and a former Rhodes Scholar. He’s also embroiled in a racially tinged controversy involving the South Bend police department. However, there is one thing Buttigieg certainly isn’t: a theologian. Time and time again, the 2020 candidate has attempted to claim Christianity for the Left, with puff-pieces in left-leaning Christian periodicals, like the Jesuit journal America, praising his name. Yet Buttigieg has continually left the impression that he is poorly informed about doctrine at best (or perhaps even operating in bad faith).
Walmart used to be a major target for Democrats. They would pillory the retail giant for paying low wages to their employees and wiping out small businesses. Republicans would often rush to Walmart’s defense as a free market success story. Now the tables have turned as Walmart is using its might to push a left-wing political agenda. As the company expands into more urban areas, it is hoping to attract a more left-leaning clientele while gambling that it won’t drive its existing customer base away. Walmart announced this week that it would cease selling handgun ammunition and certain kinds of
Politicizing and propagandizing in U.S. public schools is at an all-time high. Not only has the far left agenda sucked education into a black hole of safe spaces, hurt feelings, and post-truth America-bashing, but now the progressive elites want to teach kids everything there is to know about sex. Not just the-birds-and-the-bees sex. The kind of sex and sex acts and sexual proclivities that should be causing heads to turn nationwide. More and more school districts are adopting curriculum based on Comprehensive Sexuality Education — heavy on sexuality, taking the sex talk to all new extremes. Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), was created
