GOP staffer Elizabeth Lauten recently came under fire for criticizing the Obama girls over the Thanksgiving holiday. The criticism came about when the girls, Sasha, 13, and Malia, 16, made an appearance at the 67th annual pardoning of the turkey. The pardoning is an annual presidential tradition in which two turkeys’ lives are spared from a “terrible and delicious fate.” According to Lauten, Sasha and Malia were lacking in class and respect of both themselves and their position as daughters of the president. She made the following statement in a Facebook post: Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re...Read More

The Oneness doctrine, the doctrine in which I am rooted, differs significantly from that of the Trinitarian doctrine. As a result of this, I would naturally have some fundamental issues with Pope Francis, his theology, and Catholicism in its entirety.

Breastfeeding has been an integral part of civilization since the beginning of time. Only in America, which has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the developed world, is breastfeeding still considered a controversial topic. Our hyper-sexualized, highly immodest society has a media which celebrates celebrities of Hollywood who compete against one another to arrive at award programs with the least amount of clothing. American women parade beaches and boardwalks in bikinis that are essentially bras and panties, and attend weddings, funerals, and even their jobs in thigh-high dresses and skirts topped with low-cut, breast-exposing blouses. Case in point: consider the...Read More
The premise of the abortion argument in today’s society is that the unborn are non-living, and therefore the host of the pregnancy has the prerogative to decide whether it lives or dies. However, if those who are so-called pro-choice have any interest in biology, they would know that the unborn meet the criteria for the definition of life. So, which characteristics do the unborn contain and exhibit? The answer is all eight of them. But first, what is pregnancy? Pregnancy is the development of human life, which takes place in the uterus. Structure dictates function, and each sect of...Read More
In an effort to boost Guam’s bird population and prevent further damage to electrical equipment on the Andersen Air Force Base believed to be caused by snakes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently spent $8 million to have 2,000 mice sent on a covert mission to Guam. Given snakes’ sensitivity to acetaminophen (Tylenol), the objective was to pump 2,000 mice full of the drug and have them transferred by helicopter where they were to parachute into Guam. The hope, worth $8 million, was that 2,000 toxic mice would put a dent in the island’s snake population, which is at an...Read More
