    Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in America, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017, surpassing the record set in 2016 by more than 200,000, CDC scientists reported Tuesday. Experts say many factors have contributed to the rapid rise, though the biggest one may be less frequent condom use. It’s less clear whether dating apps, like Tinder, have contributed in some way to the spread of STDs, though some researchers think they have. “We have seen...
  • When the President's Behavior Is Reprehensible

    The news about the president is shocking. Behavior that would get most people fired has taken place, and something must be done. Are we, as a nation, not up in arms when a president: --Is repeatedly and humiliatingly unfaithful to his wife? --Engages in sexually exploitative conduct with young women working for him? --Is credibly accused of sexual misconduct by more than one woman? --Uses racial slurs to describe African-Americans, in the crudest possible terms? --Lies to the American public repeatedly? --Spies on journalists and denies them access to the White House? --Interferes with investigations into foreign nationals suspected of...
  • Solzhenitsyn's 1978 Prophetic Warning to America

    By: Pastor Bill Randles ”“Wisdom cries out loud in the streets, she raises her voice in the squares…” Proverbs 1:20Harvard’s motto is “Veritas”. Many of you have already found out, and others will find out in the course of their lives, that truth eludes us if we do not concentrate our attention totally on its pursuit. But even while it eludes us, the illusion of knowing it still lingers and leads to many misunderstandings. (From Solzhenitsyn’s 1978 Harvard address “A World Split Apart”)Alexander Solzhenitsyn, a Nobel Prize winning author, Soviet dissident and a survivor of an eight year sentence in...
  • Being Moral Is Not The Same As Being Holy...eschatology 9

    Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.(Romans 2:1)Being disgusted by the squalid effects of the morally ruined, spiritually bankrupt, reprobate world we have created for ourselves and our unfortunate children and grandchildren can be deceiving. It is normal and healthy to feel moral repugnance at the twisted,perverse ,obscene media culture of today, but that does not equate to being Righteous ourselves. That is the point Paul is making in the first 11 verses of Romans 2.To paraphrase verse 1, ‘Of...

    John Stossel’s recent column, “Dads Needed,” contains some timely, important, but well-known—at least within the Christian conservative community—truths. Much of the column focuses on the work of author, speaker, and former feminist, Warren Ferrell—especially Ferrell’s new book "The Boy Crisis"… Along with his recent column, “Stossel on Reason” recently interviewed Dr. Ferrell. Here Ferrell notes, “Men and boys started falling behind when government began subsidizing single mothers.” He later adds, “It doesn’t make a difference whether she [a single mother] needs a man, it makes a difference that her children need a father.” Farrell also notes that children without fathers...

    Public Eroticism and the Collapse of Judeo-Christian Morality Unsuspecting individuals and parents along with their children around the world are being unwittingly and shockingly exposed to the growing number of highly-publicized events such as World Naked Bike Rides (WNBR), in which participants flout their nudity as a form of “political protest” to promote a “more body-positive world.” Casting all modesty aside, to draw attention to themselves the riders use bullhorns, boomboxes, musical instruments and other forms of public address systems to ensure that their exhibitionism does not go unnoticed. The party often continues at local parks and other public venues,...

    Washington (CNN) - Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Saturday called for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be replaced with an agency that reflects America's morality and "that works," joining the growing chorus of Democrats who have called for the agency to be scrapped. "The President's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious -- we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works," Warren said at an immigration protest against family separations in Boston, Massachusetts, which was among hundreds of marches, protests and rallies taking...

    ...Instead of its pasta, Red Hen restaurants are now famous for partisanship—and, like most every liberal these days, “panic, ignorance, and malice.” Instead of angry politics, the Virginia location that turned away Sarah Sanders claimed they were doing so based on “moral convictions.” How absurd. Of course, as most now well know, the “moral convictions” of modern liberalism allow for the killing of the most innocent and helpless among us, the legal redefinition of the oldest institution in the history of humanity, the attempted redefinition of gender, the embracing of virtually every sexual perversion imaginable, and so on. In other...

    I had lunch recently with a colleague of mine named Allan. He’s a retired professor who once taught at a university in New York and now teaches inside prisons. Allan was talking in despairing tones about America and wanted to know my thoughts on the matter. When I asked him to be more specific, he was taken aback at the idea that further clarification was needed. He couldn’t understand my failure to see the utter hopelessness of the society all around me. Allan is 68 years old and a self-proclaimed Marxist. Both of his parents were surgeons from New York,...

    The best prediction of a successful marriage is being able to live together and that's especially the case when in a small space. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, however, are already well on their way to passing that test. The future newlyweds are currently living in just 1,300 square feet at Kensington Palace.

    In Frank Herbert's "Dune" series (my favorite-science fiction books), he made a bold writerly decision. In a genre famous for robots and computers (particularly in the 1960s), Herbert imagined a futuristic universe with neither. In his telling, some 10,000 years prior to the story of the book, there was galactic revolt called the Butlerian Jihad. This is where I first learned the word "Jihad" -- the Arabic term for Islamic holy war. It can all get fairly nerdy, but the gist is that artificially intelligent computers and androids were banned. In one explanation, the Butlerian Jihad was named after a...

    On March 14, high school students from Parkland, Florida, led a school walkout in favor of gun control. The media have already appointed student witnesses of the horror at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School untouchable moral authorities; their opinions are not to be questioned. But now, the left has found even more sympathetic faces for its agenda: kindergarteners. According to The Wall Street Journal, "Schools are grappling with how to address the event with children as young as 5 years old and with finding ways for children who are too little to be told about school shootings to take part."...

    "Permit the children to come to me; do not hinder them; for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." - Jesus in Mark 10:14 Throughout the world by God's design - and apart from mankind's fallen and sinful nature - there is nothing more universal than the love of parents for their children and the desire to protect them. It is incumbent upon parents and all citizens to do whatever they can to protect America’s children, teachers and staff in our schools.

    Before we discuss violence with guns, I'd like to run a couple of questions by you. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every day nearly 30 Americans die in motor vehicle crashes that involve drunk driving. What kind of restrictions should be placed on automobile ownership? Should there be federal background checks in order for people to obtain a driver's license or purchase a car? The FBI's 2015 Uniform Crime Report shows that nearly three times more people were stabbed or hacked to death than were killed with shotguns and rifles combined. The number of shotgun and...

    While Americans try to cope with the losses in Florida, they're saying goodbye to someone else: America's pastor, Billy Graham. Never has our nation so desperately needed to hear the message of hope and healing that the 99-year-old spent his life sharing. So surely, it's no earthly coincidence that even in Reverend Graham's death, he's forcing us to look in the one place where the answers to this heartbreak lie: up.Torn apart by grief and rage, Americans are frantic to know why our nation is unraveling in one act of violence after another. "We're done with thoughts and prayers!" an...

    This past academic year we have seen a number of examples of political correctness “gone mad” on college campuses. We have seen many conservative speakers having to cancel their talks, we have seen Ivy League students becoming hysterical about some benign comments about Halloween costumes, and we have seen Emory students freaking out and protesting to the university president because someone scrawled Trump 2016 in chalk on the campus grounds. ...I certainly am not someone who dismisses “political correctness” in its entirety. We should indeed be attentive to issues of power and privilege approach these issues with reflection. However, over...

    Tuesday on Politico's "Off Message" podcast, referring to President Donald Trump’s alleged "shithole" comments, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said Trump was the "antithesis of moral leadership." Perez said, "On a basic level, this president is the antithesis of Martin Luther King. And more than that, Dr. King once said, 'To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.' So the most recent remarks of the president should come as a surprise to no one." He continued, "When you are referring to people by their race that is the definition of racism." When asked if Trump is a...

    2018 has barely finished dawning, and already, the pharmaceutical industry once more has egg on its face from outrageous price hikes. This time, the culprit is pharmaceutical startup NextSource, which apparently has taken a 40-year-old cancer drug known as lomustine, and ruthlessly hiked its price from $50/pill in 2013, to $768/pill now. In other words, they’ve raised the price of the drug by over 1400% over the past five years. NextSource’s defense for why this has happened has to be read to be believed. CBS News reports that the company’s CEO, Robert DiCrisci, claims that the company set the price based on the...
