Mental Laziness & Sexual Abusers

There are very few things that feel as good as being proven right. For years and years, I have been saying that morality matters. That character matters. That principles matter. Now suddenly the mainstream Left has decided that it is hip and fashionable to believe that morality actually matters in some way. This has been the position of the Right for ever. That’s just the way things were. The Right consistently ran what many derisively called “old-fashioned, bible-thumping” candidates who believed in this crazy notion of morals. While most often, the Left would run “progressive, forward-thinking, modern candidates”, unbound...

Islam – The Solution to Sexual Abuse?

Sexual abuse scandals continue to flood the news. Their almost as common as cockroaches in government buildings apparently. As the scions of politics, news, and entertainments continue to fall, one by one, many of us have taken a step back and asked – how do we solve this problem?

A weight, right there in your gut. You Know What’s Coming. Anyone who’s ever told a lie knows the feeling I’m talking about. It’s when you have something to hide. Something to lose if your secret is discovered. If we’re being brutally honest, we’ve all been there at one time or another. Whether it was telling your parents you’d brushed your teeth when you hadn’t, or cheating...

#EndTruckViolenceNow

This week, New York suffered an act of terrorism. A follower of the Islamic State, using a rented truck, murdered 8 people in cold blood and injured 11 others in New York City. Let me begin by saying that our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and the families of those affected by this evil act of terrorism. While the scale of this attack is far different, one can’t help but notice the difference of coverage & reaction regarding the New York City attack when compared to the Vegas attack in September. After the Vegas attack, that...
