Not All Play is Created Equal

Jenni Stahlmann and Jody Hagaman

When we were kids, most of what we did would be called “open play.” According to Tim Holliday, owner of Children’s World toy store in Sarasota, Florida, open play means, “You take [a toy] out of the box, and it’s up to the child to figure out what to do with it.”

Honoring Father and Mother

Dave Daubenmire

Have you heard of the Canary in the coal mine? You know it is that allusion to caged canaries that miners would carry down into the mineshafts with them. If dangerous gases such as methane or carbon monoxide leaked into that shaft, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners. The death of the canary provided a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. Is there a canary in the coalmine for a country or for a society?

McHugh is the former psychiatrist-in-chief and the current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry for John Hopkins. He recently wrote in the Wall Street Journal that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

How We Told Our Kids About Sex

J. Matt Barber

Rocker Marilyn Manson, while certainly no role model for children, is, nonetheless, an intelligent chap. He at least calls it how he sees it. “This is the culture you’re raising your kids in,” he once warned of today’s godless, secularized America – one that he helped make so. “Don’t be surprised if it blows up in your face.” And blow up it will.

The Hyper-Sexualization of America

A.J. Castellitto

All Rachel Pepe wanted was to be treated like one of the girls. There is one major problem however. She’s a boy. Gender identity and sexual preference is a huge issue in America today. If you’re like me, your natural reaction may be, “TMI!”

‘Justina’s Law’ Introduced in Wake of Pelletier Nightmare

J. Matt Barber

This is the story of a child, Justina Pelletier, who faced 16 long months of child abuse and incarceration at the hands of both Massachusetts government officials and callous medical personnel at Boston Children’s Hospital. Thankfully, due to the actions of Liberty Counsel, a Christian civil rights law firm, powerful media voices like Glenn Beck and tens of thousands of outraged and outspoken Americans, 16-year-old Justina is now home.

Where is the Godly Father on Father’s Day?

David Pepe

The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation. It is a strong family unit that rests and abides on the moral absolutes of time that will keep and preserve a society from decadence violence and social break down.

Motherhood: Women and Wages

Robert Romano

“[T]here is the issue of marriage and children. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that single women who have never married earned 96 percent of men’s earnings in 2012.The supposed pay gap appears when marriage and children enter the picture," said American Enterprise Institute’s Mark J. Perry and Andrew G. Biggs. It is stating the obvious. Women have babies, and when they do, a significant percentage of them leave the labor force.

Abortion, Parenthood and Responsibility: The Double Standard

Bob Ellis

There is a double standard men face when it comes to abortion, parenthood and responsibility. Don't pro-aborts tell us that a woman shouldn't be forced to become a mother if she doesn't want to? Is the same true of a man? Should a man be forced to become a father if he doesn't want to?

Enriching the Bad Guys

Bob Ellis

President Obama's decision to bail out the Marxist thugs in Cuba has me thinking again. Thinking again, as I have thought since at least the 90s (when congress normalized trade relations with the communist regime in China...who are still a bunch of oppressive communist thugs, 20 years later) about why in the world a self-respecting, freedom-loving nation should EVER want anything whatsoever to do with an oppressive Marxist regime.

I agree with Whoopi Goldberg!

Woodrow Wilcox

On “The View” TV program on December 17, 2014, Whoopi Goldberg said that our prayers go to the families in Pakistan who lost their children and others in the attack on a school in Pakistan by the Taliban. She added that Americans who want to support or help the Taliban or ISIS should realize that those groups support such acts of terror. Whoopi ended the comment by telling the audience that people in the U.S. who like the Taliban or ISIS should leave because we don’t need them in this country.

I’m White, and a Victim of Racism

Bob Ellis

Hot Air examines a goofy People interview that Barack and Michelle Obama gave in which they cited examples of the horrible racism to which they've been subjected. I'm a victim, just like Michelle Obama.

Senator Cruz: Why I tried to block Obama’s amnesty

Guest Author

Amnesty is wrong, and it is unfair. It’s unfair to millions of legal immigrants, to the 92 million Americans who are currently not in the labor force, and to minority communities across the nation struggling with record unemployment. Even more troubling was how the amnesty was decreed: by executive fiat, directly contrary to federal immigration law and to the Constitution.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
