.@SallyKohn is a dishonest lackwit
The key issue over the Indiana RFRA and the similar bill in Arkansas (as well as the bills currently in effect in about 30 other states) is pretty simple. Can someone use the force of law to compel you to either violate your religious beliefs or be punished. For all observant Christians, homosexual acts — not the sexual attraction per se — are sinful.

Obama convinces scientists to support Iran nuclear surrender
As part of its breathless cheerleading for the Iran nuclear deal, POLITICO ran a story titled White House looks to scientists to sell Iran deal. The White House is calling in the geek squad to sell its Iran deal. The president’s top nerd, MIT-nuclear-physicist-turned-Energy-Secretary Ernest Moniz, who has been chosen to lead the effort brought his expertise to the White House briefing room Monday, explaining | Read More »
The unbridled hysteria over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was also directed toward places like the falsely reported “anti-gay” pizzeria, would not, I believe, have occurred ten years ago. Nonsense has always existed, but outrageous cries of discrimination have become mass-produced, are set off at the slightest inconvenience, and are fueled by omnipresent social media. Even though this is true: “…the words ‘gay,’ ‘lesbian,’ | Read More »
It’s time for #WMATA reform.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or WMATA, is an organization created by interstate compact. It runs the DC Metrorail system (America’s second-largest subway) in the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland, and is governed by the compact between those jurisdictions and the US Government. It’s broken, and it’s constantly being found to be broken in new and disappointing ways. It’s time for meaningful fixes | Read More »
And on this Day, America Returned
It has been a long, cold winter. Over the last five months, we have braved unusually bitter temperatures, unusually bitter disappointments with our government, discord in the world at large, and the emergence of Meghan Trainor as a thing. But today, as we emerge from yet another unusually late brutal national cold snap, people all across America will begin a ritual. They will wake | Read More »
Reporters, In Particular, Should Read This
Ross Douthat interviewed himself on religious liberty. Note that he writes at the New York Times and no reporter there bothered to interview him on these issues. They should have.
Pillars of Eternity: The radicals re-victimize a fictional victim
The game Pillars of Eternity, funded by users on Kickstarter, offered some of its backers at the $1,000 level the option to create an non-player character in the game. One backer told a joke, and the violent fringe left pounced.
Iran: US agreed to immediate lift of sanctions
Earlier this week, Barack Obama committed the United States to a disastrous course of action that ensures the terrorist state of Iran will be allowed, with Western assistance, to build a nuclear weapon. I outlined how Obama lied to the nation about the deal and how the Iranians, themselves, accused Obama of lying about the deal. A translation of the Iranian version of the agreement | Read More »
Build Not Walls, But Communities
The events of last week were the subject of much conversation in churches yesterday. The rapid shift in society not just away from the church, but the growing hostility to the church and often with voices claiming to be of the church, leave many Christians disoriented. Christians who believe in the doctrine of vocation — that their work is a mission field — suddenly find | Read More »
CNN: “Will Schumer bring on new Democratic era?”
CNN is visibly hoping that Chuck Schumer takes back the Senate. How… droll.

Spare Us Your Outrage
Rolling Stone has finally admitted its rape story about the University of Virginia was made up. They are doing precisely nothing about it. The journalistic community of America is outraged. Spare us please. The same circle of jerks outraged by Rolling Stone were perfectly fine pushing a false story that RFRA laws legalize discrimination. The same circle of jerks outraged by Rolling Stone were perfectly | Read More »
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they | Read More »
