In May of 2004, the NAACP held a gathering to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the court decision that struck down Plessy v.

Something Hard To Swallow

John Murray heard a soft knock on his front door. Looking out a window, he saw his neighbor, ten-year-old Amy Lawton, standing on the porch. She was as cute as the proverbial button, and John often joked with Amy’s dad Bob that he should keep her locked in the basement until she is twenty-five because […]

Political Correctness In The Huddle

Highly successful former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy created a firestorm recently when he was asked by a reporter if, were he still a head coach, he would have drafted Michael Sam, the first openly homosexual player taken in the NFL draft.

An Inevitable Conclusion

Well, it happened again. This time a federal judge has overturned the homosexual marriage ban in Wisconsin. For those who are proponents of such “marriages” and, thus, the entire homosexual lifestyle, they must be feeling pretty good about themselves. What they were not capable of getting through the legislative process, they have achieved through the […]

A Scandal Within A Scandal

When Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was secretly recorded making racist remarks, the National Basketball Association recognized immediately that it had a crisis on its hands.

Francis and the Media: A Doomed Romance

The Lenten season is an excellent time for confessions, so here goes: Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. On April 13, I actually watched a segment of 60 Minutes. I hadn’t planned to do it, but as I was eating my dinner and surfing through the TV channels, I heard the name of Pope […]

I have a quiz for you. Ready? Identify the following athletes: Mitch McKee, Tyler Carron, Nikko Landeros, Jen Lee, Andy Yohe, Steve Cash. Brady Roybal, Declair Farmer, and Alexi Salamoni.

Rewriting History

Pretend for a moment that it’s 1973, and I am a Supreme Court justice.  In Roe v. Wade, seven of my colleagues have concluded that a woman has an unfettered “right” to abort her child.  The justification for this right found by my fellow justices is that the unborn child is not a person under […]
