Love Comes Softly, chapter 3 This chapter starts with Marty waking up in Clark’s house and having a moment of confusion about where she is before suddenly remembering. It’s the evening of the day Clark proposed this bargain. A lot has happened in just one day. Marty freshens up and leaves the bedroom; Clark looks up from the kitchen and motions her to the table.  Marty sat down and Clark came from the stove with a plate of pancakes and another… Read more

Those who oppose abortion also tend to hold traditional gender ideals. They see the home and children as the natural sphere for women. They see women in the workforce as a bad thing. When this is the perspective a person is coming from, abortion is suspect even if it isn’t murder. Abortion, after all, takes women from her natural sphere of motherhood and the home.  Click through to read more! Read more

A reader sent me an article titled Our Daughter’s Nightly Struggle; in it, the author narrates her effort to curb her teenage daughter’s smartphone usage. Needless to say, it didn’t go well—until she started actually listening to her daughter. When she did, she learned something. Funny how that works. My daughter is 16 and like all teens deals with social drama and ups and downs.  I want her to have a cell phone for safety, but last year I began… Read more

Have you heard about “bond buster” Paul Dorr? He works to defeat school bond increases in communities around the Midwest. He lives in Iowa, but people in communities around the Midwest hire him as a “consultant” to help them defeat ballot proposals intended to raise more tax money for cash-strapped schools.

If all three of these men—Governor Ralph Northam, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, and Attorney General Mark Herring—were to resign or be ousted, the governorship of the state of Virginia would go to Republican state House Speaker Kirk Cox. This seems odd—that the state’s voters could choose a Democratic governor and then end up with a Republican governor without holding a new election. Click through to read more! Read more

One of the mysteries about this book—for me at least—is how Clark managed to set himself up so successfully. Life on the frontier was hard. His cabin, by the way, has a kitchen, a sitting room, and a bedroom, each distinct from the other. This is not the first cabin those on the frontier tended to construct. Cattle, horses, pigs, chickens—this is a lot. Pa Wilder was never this successful.  Click through to read more! Read more

These claims are fascinating in part because they were not necessary. Anti-pornography crusaders could have argued simply that pornography is immoral, or that it creates moral decline, absent claims that it makes populations ripe for oppression and political upheaval. But then, it was the 1980s. Perhaps tying by tying concern about pornography to Cold War fears, anti-porn crusaders were able to more effectively bring it to national attention. Then again, such claims may have worked only with their base, who most shared their Cold War anxiety, while making their anti-pornography campaign sound like deprived ranting to others.  Click through to read more! Read more
