Shocking: Brandeis Feminist Faculty Led Petition Against Aayan Hirsi Ali

The wretched cowardice of Brandeis University in rescinding an honorary degree for human rights activist Aayan Hirsi Ali surprised a lot of people. A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), Ali was the target of terroristic threats in the Netherlands for speaking out against Islamic oppression of women. The question was asked, “Where’s the feminist […]

For Which He Cannot Be Forgiven

The sordid details of the Doug Phillips sex scandal have so disturbed me that I am tempted to say some very un-Christian things. You might want to go read this article at World Magazine — be sure to read all four pages — which references the fact that last month, Phillips had the effrontery to […]

‘Repeated Requests for Phillips to Stop Masturbating and Ejaculating on Her’

Doug Phillips and his wife Beall (left); Lourdes Torres (right) “This kind of behavior is so bizarre — no matter which version of the story you believe, even if you take Doug’s own version of the story — it’s so bizarre and inappropriate that he needs to get his life in order and not be […]

Professor Herf Gets It Right

Earlier this week, we noted Brandeis University’s cowardly surrender to the forces of political correctness (or perhaps, creeping Sharia). The president of Brandeis gets an earful from Jeffrey Herf, a University of Maryland history professor with a Ph.D. from Brandeis: That the president of a university founded by Jews in the immediate aftermath of the […]

Why Damon Linker Is Wrong To Say That Christianity Demands Pacifism

by Smitty Now, as a retired veteran, I’ll come under accusation of rationalizing my actions. Fair enough. But there is a simple explanation for why, according to Linker’s subtitle, “In the teachings of Christ, there is no endorsement of a just war”: Christianity is about the individual; war is about nations. Thus, what we have […]

Something For The Evangelical Atheists To Contemplate

– by Wombat-socho One of the most annoying things about the new crop of evangelical atheists – the people who not only don’t believe in God but are insistent that you shouldn’t either – is their ingrained belief that no intelligent person could possibly believe in God, and therefore anybody who does is stupid. This […]

How Can @KirstenPowers10 Ever Abandon Her Idolatry of Equality?

Betsy Childs at First Things: In a column called “Conservative Christians Selectively Apply Biblical Teachings in the Same-Sex Marriage Debate,” Kirsten Powers and Jonathan Merritt accuse Christians who refuse to provide goods and services for gay weddings of being hypocritical cherry pickers. According to their argument, consistency dictates that vendors who refuse to bake cakes for gay weddings should […]

Does #LGBT Care About a Religious Extremist Burning a Gay Bar?

Apparently not, if the religious extremist is named Musab Musmari, who police say “poured gasoline on a carpeted stairway and set it ablaze” inside Seattle’s “popular gay nightclub” Neighbours on New Year’s Eve, when 750 people were inside the club. The gay-rights movement in America is entirely owned by the Democrat Party, and is therefore […]

Miracles Still Happen

Perhaps my method — relentless sarcasm — is not ideal, but somebody’s got to be Andy Sipowicz. Jesus gets to be the “Good Cop”: As a professor of English and women’s studies, on the track to becoming a tenured radical, I cared about morality, justice, and compassion. Fervent for the worldviews of Freud, Hegel, Marx, […]

Islam’s Terrorist African Caliphate

Will America stand idle while this happens? Islamist militants stormed a village in remote northeast Nigeria on Monday, torching houses and spraying them with bullets in an attack that killed 18 people, witnesses said. The latest Boko Haram assault, on Sunday night, came hours before Nigeria’s four top military chiefs handed over to fresh commanders […]

This Was Probably Predictable

Ace of Spades: American troops spilled their guts fighting Al Qaeda in Fallujah in 2004. And now, AQ has driven out all representatives of the Iraqi government and raised its flag over government buildings. Like nature, Islamic extremism abhors a vacuum: Black-clad Sunni militants of Al Qaeda destroyed the Falluja Police Headquarters and mayor’s office, […]

‘U.S. Hate Preacher’?

When I saw that phrase in a headline, I at first thought they were talking about Phil Robertson, but no, it refers to Harlem-born Islamic extremist Khalid Yasin, whose hateful doctrine inspired Michael Adebowale, one of the perpetrators of the Woolwich Massacre. The article points out that Khalid Yasin preaches hatred toward homosexuals, in addition […]
