Mr. Potato Head Is in Trouble

Not too long ago Mr. Potato Head was in trouble. In a day when even a sitting Supreme Court justice claims not to know how to define a woman, the hubris of calling any toy “Mr.” is just too much for our present culture. Even Piers Morgan was upset about this tempest-in-a-teapot because the “Mr.”Continue reading “Mr. Potato Head Is in Trouble”

A Watershed Moment

Apparently, the U.K. has decided to shift its loyalties from courageously defying tyranny in the 20th century to embracing it in the 21st. Last week, a “conservative”-led British Parliament made George Orwell’s fictional accounts of “thought crime” a reality. After establishing censorship zones around abortion clinics in England and Wales, the MPs voted 299-116 toContinue reading “A Watershed Moment”

Why We Are Losing the Culture Wars

“Why are we on defense,” one frustrated culture warrior asked me, referring to some religious freedom issue, “when we should be on offense?” As I’ve written elsewhere, I find this metaphor telling.

Here are some striking, recent examples. Jack Montgomery reported that, “Women and ‘non-binary’ people with breasts willContinue reading “Forgive My Sarcasm”

The Secularization of America

About six months ago, Americans’ belief in God hit an all-time low. According to a 2022 Gallup survey, the percentage of people who believe in God has dropped from 98% in the 1950s to 81% today; among Americans under 30, it is down to an unprecedented 68%. Up close, the trend looks even more dramatic.Continue reading “The Secularization of America”

We Have Harmed Women’s Sports

Approximately 60% of American voters believe that allowing biological men to compete in women’s sports has had a harmful impact, according to a poll by and McLaughlin and Associates. Nearly one-fifth of Americans say the administration’s changes to Title IX, permitting biological males to compete on women’s sports teams has been “helpful” to collegeContinue reading “We Have Harmed Women’s Sports”

Everyone Wants to Be an Influencer

One hears a lot in recent times about “influencers”. They get a fair bit of press lately. The other day I saw a few headlines – out of many: “Revealed: Victoria’s top 100 Instagram Influencers.” And this: “From celebrities to relatable mums, cleaning trick gurus to fashion models, these are Victoria’s top Instagram influencers. SeeContinue reading “Everyone Wants to Be an Influencer”
