Joe Biden’s Twisted View Of Sin

Written by Gabriel Syme 

In a recent interview on “The Daily Show” President Joe Biden said that the legislature in Florida was both “cruel” and “close to sinful” for not allowing people to indoctrinate and groom young children in sexual perversion. The proposed Senate Bill 254 in Florida protects children from gender mutilation, and prohibits the use of public funds for such procedures. The President is adamantly against this Bill.

Biden said, “It’s not like a kid wakes up one morning and says, ‘You know, I decided I wanted to become a man or want to become a woman or I want to change.’… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: A Conversation With Stephanie Trussell

Written by Alyssa Sonnenburg

Stephanie Trussell is a mother, grandmother, entrepreneur, board member for the Illinois Family Institute & Good Soil Good Seed Foundation, and former candidate for Illinois Lieutenant Governor. In this special episode of Spotlight, Monte, David and Stephanie revisit the 2022 campaign and the events that led up to it.

They discussed how Illinois Republican voter turnout can be improved. Startlingly, only 45 percent of Republicans turned out to vote. Stephanie implores that conservatives must unite, not tear each other up for small differences in beliefs, and overcome a defeatist attitude when it comes to Illinois elections.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: The Black Conservative Summit in Illinois

Written by Alyssa Sonnenburg

“Every Republican who lives in Illinois
who really wants to see the strength of the party grow

Dr. Eric Wallace, the founder and executive director of the Freedom Journal Institute, is hosting a very important event this month that every conservative should endeavor to attend. He is hosting The Black Conservative Summit on the weekend of March 24th & 25th at the Tinley Park Convention Center in the southwest suburbs.… Continue Reading

Nation of Narcissists

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

When your source of truth
goes no further than what you see in the mirror.

“The problem with you conservatives is that you’re arrogant. You think you’re always right.” This is a challenge I recently received from a millennial who fancies himself my intellectual superior as well as that of all other orthodox believers. How should we respond?

Well, first, we need to remember the obvious. The difference between conservatives and progressives is not that conservatives think they’re right and progressives don’t.… Continue Reading

Perverting and Despoiling What God Has Created

Written by Robert Knight

In our materialistic modern age, we sometimes need reminders that Lucifer is real and up to no good. And that God is infinitely more powerful.

Years ago, LGBTQ activists picketed a church in Anchorage, Alaska, because the church opposed a gay rights ordinance. The protesters noticed a guy dressed in a devil suit with a pitchfork marching beside them. When they asked what he was doing, he said, “Oh, the pastor sent me out here.… Continue Reading

Consequences of Deceit And Deception: When People Lie, People Die

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Approximately 2,000 years ago, St. Paul warned first-century Christians of the dangers of lying. In fact, he admonished the church in Rome that the consequences of deceit can be deadly.

“Those who suppress the truth,” he said, “become futile in their thinking” and are “given over to a debased mind.” As a result, they are filled with “all manner of evil” such as “envy, strife, arrogance … and murder.” Paul then lowered the hammer on his argument: When people lie, people die.… Continue Reading

Authoritarian COVID-19 Powers Difficult to Claw Back

Written by Robert Knight

Some things are hard to give up.

Take the extra-constitutional powers governments have exerted because of COVID-19. Officials in otherwise self-governing republics got a zesty taste of what it would be like to operate under an authoritarian regime.

As the Wuhan virus morphs into multiple variations that appear to be less dangerous than the original strain, some authorities don’t want to let go of vaccine or mask mandates. Authority, once granted, can be difficult to claw back.… Continue Reading

Integrating Politics and Science—By First Separating Them

Written by Dr. Lucian Gideon Conway III

Freedom inherently involves risks. If you want your children to roam free at the local playground, they might injure themselves on the big slide. If you want the freedom to watch baseball, someone might get hit in the head by a stray line drive. All decisions about restricting freedom thus require a cost/benefit analysis that weighs the benefits of freedom against the potential risks.

In practice, this analysis requires two very different sets of considerations.… Continue Reading

Spoiled Adults Who Will Not work In Biden’s America Will Never Be Free

Written by Everett Piper

This past week, the Committee to Unleash Prosperity issued a report highlighting the following: Current unemployment benefits combined with pandemic and health care subsidies can now add up to $160,000 annually in certain parts of the country. The report cites the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ most recent data, showing America’s current potential workforce is participating at a woeful 62%. This is 1.5% below pre-COVID levels, which means that, by some estimates, we now have at least 400,000 fewer people engaged in gainful employment than we did before 2020.… Continue Reading

American Culture’s Sacrifice of Children For Perverted Wokeness

Written by Robert Knight

When I was young and foolish, I went to see a horror movie one afternoon.

It was George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead,” a black-and-white 1968 classic that is still quite terrifying.

The low-budget ($150,000) film is set in western Pennsylvania. It’s about some strangers who flee a growing mob of zombies and hole up in a farmhouse. The scariest scene is when a wounded woman, prone on a table, quietly turns into a zombie herself and attacks the people who had thought they were safe.… Continue Reading
