  • How Jesus of Nazareth Transformed the World: Women and Children

    As Christians around the world enter the holiest weekend of the year, non-Christians as well should be grateful for the life of Jesus of Nazareth.  As I show in my book, Christianity and the World: Essays Philosophical, Historical, and Cultural (Stairway Press 2017), there isn’t a facet of 21st century human life, particularly life in Western civilization, that doesn’t bear the impress of the religion that has informed the collective consciousness of European peoples for the last two millennia. As the Reverend D. James Kennedy puts it, Jesus of Nazareth is “the greatest man who ever lived” and “has changed virtually every...

    Finally, our children can't refuse to associate with sexual deviants because that's now considered schoolyard bullying About a week ago, a local TV station aired a newscast titled Schoolyard Bullying. In the story, a woman said that her son, who identified as a female and liked to wear dresses and makeup, was the victim of bullying by other students. In her words, they shunned him and some even made fun of him. She said her son had been bullied because of his gender identity, and she thought public schools should make an effort to better educate children about sexual diversity...

    April 10, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) As a Canadian father fights to stop court-ordered testosterone treatments for his 14-year-old daughter, U.S. experts warn theres an increasing danger that more and more American parents will find themselves in a similar heartrending predicament. Yes, it is really that bad, Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatrics, told LifeSiteNews. Parents are losing their right to protect their children from this dangerous medical experiment, and extended family members fare no better, she told LifeSiteNews. The general rule that individuals under age 18 cannot consent to medical treatment is being tossed out the window...

    WASHINGTON Medical doctors and a mom of a trans-identifying child are urging the government to shut down medical operations that are harming children. Their efforts to resist the medicalization of gender has led them to discover that government-funded research now allows wrong sex hormones such as testosterone to be given to girls as young as 8. At a Thursday panel at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, Dr. Michael Laidlaw addressed the medical harms of hormonal treatments and surgical interventions being performed on young people who believe they are the opposite sex. Doctors administering these treatments are advocating...

  • The Swedish Church Creates LGBTQ View of the Bible for Children, Identifies Jesus as 'Queer'

    The Diocese of Vsters, a division of the Church of Sweden, is now giving away an LGBTQ guide for "Christian queer kids." Bible-believing Christians may be stunned to hear that this extreme guide describes Jesus as "queer" and Joseph as transvestite. No, this isn't just some radical college course about the Bible. This is coming from the actual Church of Sweden. The church, which identifies as Protestant, has created what it calls a "survival guide" for LGBTQ youth. A Swedish news site, Nya DagBladet, states the church's guide contains definitions and concepts, a bit about the Bible and LGBTQ, as...

    Shortened title. Full title: Over Parent Objections, Public School Teaches 6-Year-Olds About Transgender Ravens And Gender Fluidity Despite parent attempts to opt children as young as five out of presentations telling them traditional gender roles are evil and people can be whatever sex they feel like, a Colorado school district showed the material anyway. Should a six-year-old be taught to use transgendered pronouns and believe in so-called gender fluidity? The leaders of Superior Elementary School in Boulder Valley School District, Colorado, think so. Last November, the school showed children from kindergarten to fifth grade videos from Queer Kid Stuff and...

    We dont credit the so-called mainstream media much these days when it comes to coverage of the Trump administration, but thats because its been so skewed, so biased, and so filled with fake news. But we have to take our hats off to ABC News for capturing some of the most heartbreaking, yet revealing, video to date regarding the true-blue national emergency and humanitarian disaster taking place along our southwestern border with Mexico. We are, however, left wondering why it took months to release it. Just days ago, the network tweeted video showing migrants mostly from Central America ...

    Two Islamic extremists have been arrested by police in Paris after allegedly plotting to massacre a kindergarten full of children. The two men, both 20 years old, were arrested on March 25th in Seine-et-Marne with the Paris prosecutor charging them over plotting to kill children and police officers, broadcaster RTL reports. One of the men involved is said to have been known to the General Directorate of Homeland Security (DGSI), Frances internal intelligence agency. The man, who investigators consider the mastermind of the plot, admitted after his arrest that he wanted to enter the kindergarten, attack the children, and then...

    On Saturday morning, IDF troops apprehended two children near the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip. The children were carrying a knife. Following an initial inquiry by IDF troops in the field, the children explained that they had intended to infiltrate into Israel with a knife so that they would be apprehended and sent to prison. IDF troops gave the children water and then returned them to Gaza through the Erez Crossing. Last year, Hamas sent a seven-year-old girl into Israel, to face the IDF forces stationed along the border fence with Gaza. The IDF confirmed that the suspected...

    What in the world has happened to us? Once upon a time, America had the greatest system of education on the entire planet, and our people were sharp, capable and extremely well informed. Sadly, none of those things are true anymore. In 2006, Mike Judge made a movie entitled Idiocracy in which an individual of below average intelligence wakes up after being asleep for 500 years thanks to a military hibernation experiment. When he wakes up, he quickly realizes that he is now the smartest man in America, and that is not a good thing. The film became an instant...

    You did what?! Parents across Santa Ana couldnt believe it. In one house after another, the answer to How was school today? was nothing like they expected. Moms and dads listened in disbelief as their middle schoolers talked about going to an LGBT Fair that no one bothered to ask their permission for. There were even people in drag, their 11-year-olds said, giving makeup lessonsright there in school. Townhalls Kira Davis listened as one mom fumed about not knowing about the fair until after it happened. There wasnt even an opportunity to opt out, she complained at last Tuesdays school...

    Last spring, a judge ruled that incompetent scumbag Scott Lloyd and his [expletive] Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) could no longer prevent underage refugees from legally seeking abortions. However, new documents suggest after the ruling, he continued to track pregnancies in order to do just that. MSNBCs Rachel Maddow revealed documents unearthed by American Bridge, a liberal super PAC, that seem to indicate Lloyd and the ORR were tracking the periods and pregnancies of refugees ages 12-17 as recently as June 2018. The 28-page document was in spreadsheet format, with columns recording deeply personal information such as whether the pregnancy...

    Last August, when she began her climate strike outside the Swedish parliament, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg was all alone. I tried to bring people along to join me, Thunberg recently told Rolling Stone, but no one was really interested, and so I had to do it by myself. But around the world, children and teenagers worried about their future and exasperated by adults overwhelming failure to address climate change soon took notice. Thousands joined Thunberg, now a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, on Friday, gathering at some 1,600 strike locations in more than 100 countries around the world...

According to records, his victim was a child under the age of 14 years old. The library said appropriate action is being...

    Recently, I noticed my friend Leila Miller repeating online that she does not insist that people remain living with an abusive spouse. My inclination was to say, Stop! You dont need to say it again! Around the same time, I noticed that I was about to repeat myself on a seemingly unrelated topic. I started thinking, What exactly is going on here? My answer: We are dealing with weaponized self-pity, not a good-faith question. Miller is the author of Primal Loss: The Now-Adult Children of Divorce Speak. She gives voice to the adult children whose lives were disrupted by their...
