Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and society

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was celebrated last month and I'm reliably informed that he was some sort of racially insensitive bigot who just wanted black Americans to act more white. I get into these "discussions" on Facebook and I should know better. I've had people I know touting "social justice" and I'll point […]

Cancel Culture and the Teaching Profession

Unlike some on the right, I'm not a big fan of cancel culture regardless of its origin. There's this story out of Arkansas about a high school history teacher who got fired over an email he sent to state lawmakers over a bill they were considering prohibiting use of the fraudulent 1619 Project curriculum and […]

Antifa's assault on freedom

In Berkeley, Calif., this past weekend, the masked, jack-booted thugs of Antifa again demonstrated their more fascist tendencies when they attacked Trump-supporters, beating at least five of them. I will be appearing on local talk radio host Dave Congalton's show for an hour Tuesday to talk about Antifa and the violence that is the norm […]

An Open Letter to a "Small Church" Pastor

Dear Peter, Do you prefer Peter, or is Pete OK? I read your open letter to Franklin Graham, and I have mixed feelings about it. First, let me say that I wholeheartedly agree with you that the embrace of Donald Trump by many Christian pastors was unseemly at best and a serious blow to their […]

Reality is inconvenient

It was predictable, really. It didn't take but a few moments after I published the rest of my weekend column that the SLO Tribune wouldn't publish for a feminist to decide that reality is inconvenient. Seeing my warning for young women to refrain from getting inebriated, and if they do, stay close to female friends, a […]

What the Tribune won't publish

For those of you reading my column in this morning's paper, it might seem oddly short. I didn't get lazy and simply choose to not use my allotted number of words; the Tribune editors refused to publish the majority of my column. While my liberal counterpart Tom Fulks can, with almost disturbing regularity, lash out at […]

Discrimination and the Orlando Shooting

My most recent column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune is about Cal Poly student Mick Bruckner's Title IX complaint against instructor Michael Winn. In short, Bruckner, a homosexual, has alleged that Winn discriminated against him for little more than voicing orthodox Christian beliefs about homosexuality in a private discussion. A couple of notes on the timeline. […]

For those who haven't been following it, Kim Davis is a Democratic County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky who is refusing to issue marriage certificates because she considers gay marriage a sin. She's been sued and repeatedly lost. Today, a judge ordered her jailed for contempt of court for refusing to issue the marriage certificates. […]

On Same-Sex Marriage

It's a week late, but I figured that I'd weigh in on same-sex marriage and ensure that I never get a job in journalism or other media again. As BuzzFeed's Ben Smith reminds us all, on the gay marriage issue, there aren't two sides. Christian response First, from the standpoint of a Christ-follower, this article […]

Red Cross Failure

ProPublica reported this week that despite raising about $500 million for relief efforts in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, the Red Cross was able to convert that money into the construction of only six homes. Six. The Red Cross says it has provided homes to more than 130,000 people. But the actual number of permanent homes the group […]

1 2 3 9

I was reading a garbage St. Louis P-D editorial on firearms and it linked to this 3-year-old USA Today article on "gun violence" by state. I put the numbers in an Excel doc and isolated homicides from suicides and the rankings change a bit. 🤔
