But social justice activists on the Left reject this. They want to silence opposing viewpoints, and now, […]

Is there censorship against conservative content going on in major outlets on the Internet, such as with YouTube or Google or Facebook? If so, HOW do the censors decide which content to approve or disapprove? In an article at dailysignal.com, Jarrett Stepman of the Heritage Foundation writes: “Silicon Valley has enormous power over the flow of information that reaches people around the globe.

One of the most interesting videos I have seen lately shows broadcasters from the Sinclair network all reading the same script about the threat of “false news,” and how fake news threatens our “democracy.” The video can be seen here. My favorite part is the last section where anchor after anchor (15 of them by my count) declares with great conviction—as if they just thought of this profound statement, “This […]

Paul Broun, M.D., served in the US Congress from the 10th district of Georgia from 2007-2015. The recent tragedy in Parkland also has another angle often overlooked. God and godly principles have been systematically removed from our schools and our public square. And so “every man does that which is right in his own eyes.” Furthermore, Dr. Broun notes that this “naked public square” phenomenon is all based a misreading […]

Many factors led to the recent school shooting in Parkland. Emilie Kao of the Heritage Foundation wrote an article that highlighted an often overlooked point. Most of the school shooters were fatherless. In her article, Kao writes, “Among the 25 most-cited school shooters since Columbine, 75 percent were reared in broken homes. Psychologist Dr. Peter Langman, a pre-eminent expert on school shooters, found that most came from incredibly broken homes […]

There are about a dozen Christian mission groups that are working together  for the third annual International Day for the Unreached on Pentecost Sunday, May 20, 2018. They note that about: 2.5 billion people have never even had the chance to hear about Jesus. 70,000 people die each day without the Gospel. And, less than 1% of church budgets go toward reaching the unreached with the Gospel. Greg Kelly is […]

In the late 1800s, Horace and Daeida Wilcox, decided to create a nice, quaint Christian community in southern California. It would serve no booze, and it would even give free land to churches (at least Protestant ones), so that righteousness could be proclaimed. By 1903, the bustling little city had enough voters—166 men—to officially incorporate. It was called Hollywood. Meanwhile, movies were first being created over on the east coast. […]
