Truth and the Ability to Speak It Under Direct Attack

Truth and the Ability to Speak It Under Direct Attack

The common complaint that “free speech” should be protected, even when it’s ugly, implicitly accepts the Left’s argument that we are trying to protect the First Amendment rights of Nazis, White Supremacists, and others with a bad smell. But it really isn’t about protecting free speech. The Left and their Muslim allies can and do say anything they want, no matter how malodorous, obscene, dishonest, misleading or defamatory, and get away with it every day. It is about truth vs a totalitarian agenda, and the despots want to shut us up. By James Simpson | Center for Security Policy The attack that claimed fifty lives at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand brought immediate, predictable responses from Democrat politicians, the media, the organized Left and Muslim groups. Commenters from CNN to New York Mayor Bill De Blasio blamed “intolerance, “an epidemic of hatred and fear,” and other shibboleths.[1] Presidential hopeful Cory Booker blamed “The rising tide of white supremacy and Islamophobia…”[2] Virtually all placed some blame on Trump. Nihad Awad, director of The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), blamed President Trump directly, “We hold you responsible for this growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the country and in Europe…”[3] The timing of the attack couldn’t have been better. A real cynic might even suspect it was part of the plan.[4] Rush Limbaugh speculated on his show the day after the attack, “You can’t immediately discount this. The left is this insane, they are this crazy.”[5] Read More

This is Your Place in the Battle Against Abortion

This is Your Place in the Battle Against Abortion

Wesley Wildmon | The StandVice-President of Outreach When it comes to the moral climate of a nation, two forces should work in harmony to promote righteousness: the church and the government. In these times of moral relativity, it is important that we – the church of Jesus Christ – influence the government in every major issue of our culture, whether it is religious liberty, marriage, or freedom of speech. Even more importantly, we need to be doing all we can to influence the government to protect all lives from murder – regardless of age, ability, or geographic location. Abortion has been an evil running rampant in the United States for a long time, and the time has come for the church and the government to put an end to it. The Government’s Role – law, passion, and courage Read More

Destroying the Seed

Destroying the Seed

Laura Perry | The Standformer Transgender and Contributing Blogger  While transgenderism was nearly unknown in the majority of households a decade ago, suddenly it seems as though it is breathing down our necks and seeping into our homes and families like cancer. I don’t recall, at least in my lifetime or in recent history, an ideology that has so quickly transformed a culture. In fact, the trend of teenage girls suddenly claiming a desire to become a boy is so rampant that this new phenomenon has been coined: Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria. Read More
