Lego Wars: Let boys build, let girls nurture.

The belief that men and women are unequal because they are different is an erroneous, yet all too commonplace, conclusion and it can lead to some really unconscionable actions. Here’s an example what can happen when such flawed thinking is unleashed in a classroom just a short ferry ride from my home: Kindergarten teacher bans boys from using legos…

Bruce Jenner takes off his cross- and hands it to his children

The whole world has turned their attention to Bruce Jenner, whose transition has been the number one trending story for two days. Big Media, cultural elites, and even the White House are falling all over themselves to swoon over Mister Bruce Jenner and his “transition” to womanhood.  Some of the adjectives bandied about describing his coming out include “Brave” and “Courageous.”…

OH BOY! You’re a girl?

“Transgender toddler”. These words don’t belong in the same sentence.

The media does a good job of presenting the portrait of a youth struggling to make sense of his identity and same-sex attractions,…

War on men? Yup.

Suzanne Venkner’s Fox News opinion piece “The War on Men” is garnering great attention in the blogosphere.  I agree with, and cultural trends seem to affirm, many of her conclusions.  The climax of her article is this statement.  “But what if the dearth of good men, and ongoing battle of the sexes, is – hold on to…

Why The Good Samaritan Wasn’t Gay

I was writing a blog post called “The Gay Samaritan.”  I wrote it under the premise that Jesus used the Samaritan in His iconic parable for maximum shock value.  He was trying to stun His audience into understanding that they were to love everyone and there were now no barriers within His kingdom when it…
