As Veteran’s Day is now upon us, it’s only fitting that I talk about our veterans and our active military. But is the respect we are supposed to feel for our veterans on this holiday really meaningful anymore? Do you remember when letting the flag touch the ground was a sign of disrespect? I can almost hear my eighth grade homeroom teacher now as she emphasized the hours of detention to be endured if that flag touched the ground. Fast forward eight years, and I see a larger-than-acceptable segment of America that refuses to revere the symbolism of our flag. In this year alone, national headlines have...Read More

Sunday night brought hundreds of supporters to New York City’s Hilton Midtown in honor of Hillary Clinton’s 68th birthday. While Amy Schumer, John Legend, and Demi Lovato were just a few of the A-listers who attended the lavish event, Katy Perry was seen boasting on social media about Hillary hours prior to the celebration–where she performed at a Clinton rally in Iowa. Is it coincidence that this elaborate, star-studded party came just days after the much-anticipated Benghazi hearing, which many have said left Clinton “unscathed“? I don’t think so. The hashtag #imwithher has frequently been used to rally Clinton supporters on social media, but Sunday night #imwithher praise...Read More
Whether it be for his stance on gun-control, his lack of political experience, his Judeo-Christian faith, or his view on an Islamic President, everything that Dr. Ben Carson says seems to be picked and prodded with a fine-tooth comb.

He is a very public, very popular anomaly, and that scares people. Unlike many of the other Presidential candidates, Dr. Carson has done nothing to warrant this kind of media abuse. This whole media...Read More
This past Saturday marked the 3rd anniversary of Pastor Saeed Abedini’s imprisonment in Iran. Prayer vigils were held on Facebook in an effort to unite believers worldwide in prayer for his release. Pastor Saeed Abedini is a husband, a father of two beautiful children, and faithful Christian who has been held captive in Iran for 3 years due to his renouncing of the Islamic faith. He is very literally being persecuted and tortured in the name of Jesus Christ. Prior to being arrested, Pastor Saeed’s only purpose for being in Iran was to establish a government-approved orphanage for children who have no safe place to live. During that...Read More
In 21st century America, some of our greatest foreign controversies stem from topics that surround the Islamic faith. Whether it is the expansion of the Muslim religion and the extremists that vow “death to America”, the Syrian refugee crisis, or the a war on terror that seems to never end, we have been fighting against the Middle East for more than a decade. Post 9/11, America’s sole purpose for engaging in the war against the Middle East was to keep our nation’s enemies off of American soil. So, what happens when Islamic indoctrination finds its way into our middle school curriculum? This week we found out....Read More
