Mom told to cover-up takes different approach. (Facebook/Carol Lockwood) This won’t win me any friends but I agree with Orlando Sentinel’s David Whitley‘s view on women breastfeeding without covering up (at all). He gently thinks out loud about his own discomfort. “Breastfeeding is normal, nurturing and nobody should be shamed for doing it. On top of that, […]

This is an interesting yet ambiguous Supreme Court ruling. It’s not a clear win for social conservatives or the LGBTQ community. A baker in Colorado refused to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding citing religious objections. He says he has no problem selling a gay customer baked goods. But he refuses to bake […]

Written by Sam Cook The internet as we know it is nearly 30 years old. Sure, the web is a bit more complicated — and more intricately connected — than it was 30 years ago, but it’s no less of a modern Wild West today than it was in the 90s (although you may need […]

When I say confused I’m not saying anything is wrong with the spectrum and fluidity of gender identity; I’m saying I don’t understand how someone can feel like a man one day, female the next or at any given moment, somewhere in-between or entirely genderless? But to quote my 19 year-old daughter, “Mom you don’t […]

  Excerpted from “God Is Also Inside Planned Parenthood” They were last night as I walked in to a Planned Parenthood discussion on “A Celebration of Faith and Reproductive Health.” They’re always there, the voices to protect the unborn. A few protesters waved graphic images of bloody broken babies and held “Planned Parenthood = Murder” […]

I’ve long been horrified by Westboro Baptist. On the continuum of LGBT haters, they spew the worst anti LGBT post tragedy bile imaginable with such Godly views as: they deserved it. WB is apparently “Orlando Bound” to protest, as they often do, at local funerals of victims of the Pulse tragedy. It goes without saying […]

It’s not easy to criticize the coolest Pope, ever. Pope Francis smiles for selfies, Tweets, says yes! to the Big Bang and evolution, waves from his popemobile and against tradition, washes (oh the horror!) the feet of women on Holy Thursday. I’m not Catholic but when this Pope speaks, I listen. I don’t expect to agree […]

I had to do some serious deep breathing after I read this letter to the Orlando Sentinel. Diane wrote against women in combat, against women going against their “natural roles” in society: “However, feminists have shrilly begged for “equality” for so long, and now they have it; or do they? Not all women want it; nor […]

I sickened myself as I cheered, celebrating this Christian being thrown to the lions. I watched the one minute coverage below and rooted the mob who piled on in front of Kim Davis’s desk, a woman who three-times divorced with two kids out-of-wedlock (not judging pointing out hypocrisy) refuses to grant marriage certificates to same-sex […]

Confederate flag’s half-century at S.C. Capitol ends – CNN.com Yes it’s true, taking the Confederate flag down won’t end racism as banning the swastika in Germany didn’t stop Neo-Nazis from bleeding white supremacy. But why would anyone willing to face the Confederate flag’s history want to add insult to injury? “The Confederate flag, we are […]
