The political activists which are the most astute when it comes to history today are conservatives. This is why we are the ones concerned about government overreach, the breakdown of the family and the moral bankruptcy of our nation. By studying the past, we’ve come to understand the inevitable consequences of these courses of action. We realize that excessive government involvement leads to tyranny, and that the disintegration of the family unit is sure to produce a disoriented and emotionally unhealthy citizenry. We know that the searing of a society’s collective conscience is a sure road to chaos, and...Read More

Gay rights were abridged in California earlier this week when the California Senate passed a bill which would make it a crime for a mental health professional to conduct sexual orientation change efforts with a consensual minor.

A little perusal of the web results in a smorgasbord of takes concerning the debacle of Julia from conservative bloggers and columnists. The most prominent...Read More
Tweet “The only way to make a thing lovable is to wildly love it.” –Ann Voskamp A few weeks ago, I took on social conservatives in a majorly controversial piece about underage dating.
