Boys Without Dads: A Cruel and Volatile Calculus

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Angry Kids 2The rioting in Baltimore is disturbing to all Americans, as the unresolved cause of Freddie Gray’s death[baltimoresun.com] while in police custody should be, as well.

It is right that political and religious leaders, community groups, business organizations, and law enforcement officials are commenting about all the causes and effects of the riots.  But one thing seems missing from the discussion, a factor whose omission is unacceptable.  It’s called fatherhood.

Another Dred Scott Ruling?

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Black FamilyAs the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider whether to overturn the marriage laws of all the states—as some activist federal judges have already done in some of the states–conservatives are naturally calling for judicial restraint. We must warn the court against another exercise of “raw judicial power” like that handed down with its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. That cruel and unjust ruling is viewed as illegitimate by tens of millions of Americans. Young people, especially, are turning against abortion-on-demand. We see this in every pro-life march. And this public outcry is being translated into a bumper crop of pro-life legislation bubbling up in state legislatures.

The Third Gender

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Cross Dressing“He created them male and female and blessed them and called them mankind in the day they were created.”
–Genesis 5:2

This passage of scripture has defined the obvious truth in all nations among all peoples of all creeds since the beginning of humankind. However thanks to the Obama administration – that was then, this is now. We used to have two genders, male and female, but now in an astounding assault on nature itself the policy agenda of this administration is morphing our gender assignments into three; male, female, and “what I identify as.”

“Marriage Should Not Exist,” Says Masha the Marriage-ender

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Black family on porchWhen a panel of judges from the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals pulled the nation back from the brink this week, they provided a rare glimpse of common sense in the debate over ending marriage. The majority opinion asks us to:

How We Told Our Kids About Sex

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Black Family two kidsIt was the summer of 2011. We were visiting friends in North Carolina one weekend for a lovely wedding on the beach. Our strong-willed, opinionated and hyper-inquisitive children, a boy and two girls, were, at the time, 10, 7 and 6 respectively. My gorgeous, though Chicago-tough and Sicilian-sassy, wife and I were at lunch with the kids at a little seaside café the following day. A late morning ocean breeze puffed through the eatery’s open bay windows, filling our nostrils with that salty pong of damp sand and faint sea life, forecasting a beautiful day ahead.

Flash: Christians Actually Far Less Likely to Divorce

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

BrideThis is a game-changer. Talk about   “an old wives’ tale.” You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-believers.

Bob Dylan: A Prophet in Blue Jeans?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Bob DylanIn 1964 Bob Dylan wrote the amazing classic tune, “The times they are a changing”.  Some of the words went like this:

“The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast…

Rapidly fadin’

And the first one now

Will later be last

For the times they are a-changin’.”

Kevin Durant and The Absent Father

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Angry Kids 2About two weeks ago Oklahoma Thunder power forward Kevin Durant became the recipient of the National Basketball Association’ “Most Valuable Player” award for the 2013/14 NBA season. His graceful and gracious acceptance speech was seen live by millions and has been viewed on the internet multiple millions of times since. K.D.’s speech was emotional –at times heart wrenching- as he freely gave credit for his award away to fans, coaches and teammates. It was a class act by a seemingly class guy.
