Freedom to Go 'n Grow Together in Christ
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Proverbs 1:8 (NIV)
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV)
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Romans 13:8-10 (NIV)

(12/24/2016) Christmas on Campus Week in Higher Education. There is a great "Save the Snowflakes" video, and we certainly wouldn't want to have our precious college snowflakes melt at this time of year.
(12/11/2016) Microsoft Holiday Ad Celebrates Left-Wing Causes. It seems that for those on the Left, "bringing people together" means to indoctrinate them in left-wing causes. Here is more on this: Microsoft Goes Left.
(11/12/2016) The Coddled Generation That Wasn’t Taught to Grow Up. It used to be that people went to college so that, in addition to academic pursuits, they would learn to live on their own and be responsible; it other words, to grow up and mature. Colleges seem determined to make their students regress, instead.
(11/02/2016) Pew: Donald Trump Voters Are Tolerant, Hillary Clinton Voters are Intolerant. To be more sepcific, Trump voters are much less likely to disrespect Hillary voters than vice versa. 40% of Trump voters have a "hard time" respecting Hillary voters, 58% of Hillary voters have a hard time respecting Trump voters. Kind of ironic since Hillary supporters are the ones waving "Love Trumps Hate" signs.
(10/25/2016) Feminists complain Wonder Woman's costume too revealing. Let me make sure I have this straight: Wonder Woman's outfit is deemed too revealing by the same people who sponsor "slut walks." While I am a fan of modesty, I am amused by the thought that if Baptists had complained about Wonder Woman's outfit before the feminists did, those same feminists would have attacked us for our "Puritanical" attitudes!
(10/21/2016) Nice People Really Do Have More Fun. Selfish nastiness is all the rage, but research shows that pleasant behavior leads to more success and happiness in life. The article requires a WSJ subscription. But the teaser confirms what most of us (hopefully) already knew. Let your niceness flow!
(10/18/2016) A Blizzard of Snowflakes. We have an increase in "anxiety counseling" on college campuses.
(10/18/2016) Social Justice Warriors: Purge Teddy Roosevelt, Columbus from History. I keep repeating myself, but when the USSR did this kind of stuff we laughed at how ridiculous they were. Now we are doing it and it has made significant inroads into our schools where we are already teaching politically correct US history; history that emphasizes the bad and ignores the good. In particular, it ignores the details of our founding as well as the uniqueness of the American experience. In short, it leaves out why America is exceptional and why America is great. Is it any wonder that our younger generation no longer believes in these things?
(10/17/2016) Walmart: “All Lives Matter” Bumper Sticker is Offensive. Walmart has subsequently reversed themselves. But we need to keep in mind that the progressives in this country are ready, willing and able to try to impose their values on the rest of us. And that includes complaining to companies like Walmart about the "offensiveness" of certain products. We need to be ready, willing and able to fight back. We may have won this little skirmish - a skirmish that never should have even taken place - but far too often, we lose because we did not fight back.
(10/15/2016) Duke U.: Combating “Toxic Masculinity.” Instead of fighting "privilege" and trying to drag some people down, we should focus on teaching people how to earn their own "privilege."
(10/06/2016) Sailor In Trouble For Not Standing During National Anthem. It would be nice if our elected officials were held to the same standards as our military.
