“Social Justice.” What is it? What does it mean? Modern Woke warriors think they invented it to describe their goals and ideologies. Alas, like most things in this world, it is not new, nor particularly inventive, clever, or brilliantly conceived by the Woke world. Ecclesiastes 1:9 tells us that “What has been will be again, […]

Let’s start out with a simple decision most of us have to make at one time or another. I don’t know about you, but if I am flying or having surgery, I want someone qualified by training and ability to handle the cockpit or the scalpel. I certainly don’t want someone who is there because […]

Pope Francis is not the first apologist of the Roman Catholic Church to bend the knee before American indigenous peoples in such a dramatic fashion as we saw on his visit recently.

If you still don’t know what a “gringo” is, that’s what we Americans are called in Latin America. It’s a common term in the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world […]

White Racists, 2022 Update Over the past several years, the University of Alabama’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion vigorously denied it teaches white racism is inevitable, endemic, and cannot be changed.

What Were You Doing in 1965? Over the past few months, I have read a lot of newspaper articles—most on the front pages—about the marches from Selma to Montgomery in 1965.
