Where Does Identity Preference End and Mental Illness Begin?

    This is not an easy article to write without inevitably hurting the feelings of some people.  It is not my intention to do so.  My objective is to instead have an honest conversation about where we are headed as a society.  I do not pretend to understand the great struggle that those who deal with gender identity conflicts deal with, nor do I in any | Read More »

    Marita Noon: It is a bad time to be in the renewable energy industry

    About a decade ago, when more than half of the states enacted strict Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), Oklahoma, and a few other states, agreed to voluntary targets. Now, nearly one-third of those states are reconsidering the legislation that sounded so good in a different energy era. Back then, it was widely believed that there was an energy shortage and “dealing with global warming” was a higher public priority.

    So who will start a GoFundMe for Christians?

    Recently, a GoFundMe account was shut down by “Social Justice Warriors” that was taking donations for a Christian bakery, Sweet Cakes. They have been hit with a perposterous $135,000 fine for not making a wedding cake for a homsexual couple’s “wedding”! Last I checked, before the account was closed by GoFundMe, they had about $110,000 that would have gone towards the fine.
