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?

Children are the Path to Successful Tyranny

Michael Peroutka

You can't subjugate a Christian people. They won't stand for it! A Christian culture will recognize and reject tyranny before tyranny can get a foothold. This is because a Biblically-literate and devoted people will not allow their civil government to tyrannically usurp the jurisdictions of self-government, family government, and church government.

Teach Your Children Well

David Whitney

Good fire building techniques are essential not only at the start but throughout the burn cycle. Unless you add fuel to the fire when necessary the fire will go out. It takes constant maintenance to have a fire which continues through the night. Jesus taught us that this was true of the Christian faith; unless we go forth and make disciples the Christian faith would die out on earth.

Raising Children of Light in a Culture of Darkness

J. Matt Barber

In a culture that slaughters the unborn, mocks purity, celebrates sexual sin and makes a joke out of the institution of marriage by imagining sin-based counterfeits, it remains a daunting task for Christian parents to raise children with both the courage and conviction to stand unashamed for God’s truth. From an earthly standpoint, it seems counterintuitive to both welcome and find joy in being hated by the world. Even more, for young people who might prefer popularity over principle – at least for now – the prospect of being “hated by everyone” lacks a certain level of appeal.

Your Safe, Moral Boy Scouts Alternative Is …

J. Matt Barber

It was Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 6, 2013. The huge hall was overflowing, the convention sold out. Over 1,200 attendees, with many spilling out into the foyer, eagerly awaited the announcement. What would this safe, moral and non-sexualized alternative to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) look like? With a stirring introductory video came the answer: “Trail Life USA” would now endeavor to “be the premier national character development organization for young men, which produces godly and responsible husbands, fathers and citizens.”

‘Gay’ Lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll Take Your Children’

J. Matt Barber

Few people doubt that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hopes to become president in 2016. Unfortunately for him, he may have just signed away any chance of that. Last week, Christie signed A3371, a draconian piece of legislation that bars licensed therapists from helping children overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior or identity even when – as is so often the case – those same-sex attractions arise from childhood sexual abuse by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky.

Common Core Makes for Common Crud

Bob Ellis

South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard may think Common Core standards are just dandy, but in addition to a number of reasons we should be cautious about embracing these nationwide standards, the crud and moral rot included on the Common Core reading list for 11th graders should disturb parents who value the innocence of their children.

Homosexual Parenting is Harmful to Children

Bob Ellis

Homosexual activists would have us believe, despite thousands of years of experience to the contrary and decades of statistics to the contrary--that it is not necessary to raise a child with their mother and father. Yet adult children raised by homosexuals often tell a different story. Such is the case with Robert Oscar Lopez, who adds his voice to those who recognize the folly of counterfeit marriage and raising children in a homosexual home. He should know: he was raised by two lesbians.

The Four Walls of Godly Jurisdiction

Michael Peroutka

In the America View of law and government, we recognize that the Law of Nature and of Nature's God is a fixed, unchanging standard. And "jurisdiction" – the authority to speak and to enforce the law – is given, by God, to four separate governments.

Unshakable Hope

David Whitney

If you go to the stores these days you’re in for sticker shock as the price of everything heads to the ceiling, but there is one item that is going down in price. In fact, it’s so cheap that quite often it’s simply free for the taking. It is so abundantly available that the supply far outstrips any level of demand. What is that item?

Are You a ‘Settler’ In Your Own Land?

Victor Sharpe

Jewish communities, (villages and towns) do not consist of “settlers.” The Jewish population of Judea and Samaria (the so-called West Bank) consists of the descendants of the native and indigenous Jewish people who are now inhabiting and redeeming their own ancient land. This people are not “settlers” in what is already theirs by virtue of millennial physical and spiritual attachment.

The Environmental Impact of Environmentalism

The environmental orgy known as Earth Day has come and gone. In all the celebration, the one thing that is seemingly never asked is whether or not environmentalist policies by the government are actually helping the environment?

"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
