painting - a man in his kitchen
By: G.K. Chesterton – laphamsquarterly.org – 1910 Of all the modern notions generated by mere wealth, the worst is this: the notion that domesticity is dull and tame.

Bartholet’s interview is a smorgasbord of selective outrage and red herrings. She points to isolated instances of neglect by homeschooling parents...

wedding rings on Bible page
By: John Stonestreet – breakpoint.org – December 12, 2019 Between 2014 and 2017, the divorce rate in Jacksonville, Florida, and surrounding Duval County fell 24 percent.

cross on Bible on US flag
By: Denis Prager – townhall.com – February 4, 2020 If you want to understand a human being or the human condition, what is the single most important question you should ask? Most religious people would probably ask, “Do you believe in God?” The most important question most secular people, especially progressives, could imagine asking is probably a policy question. Today...

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley
By: Michael Brendan Dougherty – nationalreview.com – November 20, 2019 Missouri senator Josh Hawley might be the most interesting thinker the U.S. Senate has seen since Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Or at least, he’s the senator today who most resembles Moynihan as a sweeping and adventurous social critic. Last night, at a dinner held by the American Principles Project Foundation, Hawley gave...

Mom working from home
By: Erica Komisar – wsj.com – September 20, 2019 Women’s empowerment is usually equated with paid work outside the home. That’s a mistake. Assuming that women who choose to stay home and nurture their young children are powerless or unenlightened is not only insulting but dangerous. A woman’s value isn’t only a matter of how much she can earn, and women’s...
