Drafting Women: Long-term Cultural Consequences

Lost in the latest egalitarian nonsense about drafting women to serve in the military are two concerns I have about the long-term impact on us as a culture. Aside from the scientific arguments about weakening our fighting force, valid though they are, and the complete collapse of principles by so many on what used to be the ideological right, two glaring concerns remain with drafting women to serve in the military:Our society needs mothers who are not trained killers.

Missouri: The Latest Religious Liberty Battleground

Georgia isn't the only state where religious freedom is under attack these days. As we warn in You Will Be Made to Care, the Left is just getting started. In Missouri, Democratic senators filibustered a bill that would permit the people of Missouri to vote to amend their Constitution to give clear protection to those who object on moral grounds to redefining the institution of marriage. Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal and other Democratic lawmakers filibustered to block the bill they … [Read more...]

They declared us as sinners to be analogous to ISIS jihadists, and compared Jesus to the innocent victims of their attacks.

Comment 2: Did Jesus keep the legions of angels at bay in t … [Read more...]
