Even as reporters who had been caught up in the BuzzFeed fake news fiasco were concluding that journalists need to take more time to verify the facts before reporting and rushing to judgment, the news media was already attacking a group of high school boys from a Catholic school in Covington, Kentucky based upon a viral video clip selectively ripped from nearly two hours of footage….

THE FAKE NEWS EPIDEMIC IS GROWING

The Fake News Epidemic is Growing

In the waning hours of the anniversary of the president’s 2018 fake news awards, we were reminded that the problem of fake news persists today.

ARE BORDER WALLS IMMORAL?

Are Border Walls Immoral

Congress is not a place known for its moral convictions, yet in this new year, our new Speaker of the House has taken upon herself the mantle of preaching morality. According to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and some of her colleagues, we cannot end what has become nearly the longest government shutdown in history by providing partial funding for a national border wall because our nation’s values and morality are at stake….

IS THERE A SPIRITUAL ISSUE BEHIND THE NATIONAL DEBT?

Is there a Spiritual Issue Behind the National Debt?

It appears that our economy is far more precarious than we realize. As a nation, we are drowning in a sea of debt.

WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM KAVANAUGH VS. FORD?

When Did We Learn from Kavanaugh vs Ford?

Far too often we find ourselves whipped into a national frenzy because of some narrative dominating the news cycle, only to set it aside weeks later and nearly forget about it. Whether it be the separation of families at the border, the opioid epidemic, net neutrality, tensions with North Korea, voter fraud, or any number of other examples, it seems as if there is always some new “national crisis” that demands our full attention, prompting us to forget about the previous emergency. And since one crisis is immediately followed by another, we never seem to stop and process what we should have learned through these nationally shared experiences…

ARE OUR CULTURAL ROLE MODELS ADVOCATING VIOLENCE?

It seems political rhetoric is becoming increasingly violent. Particularly troubling is how many of our cultural role models, celebrities, and entertainers are publicly advocating violence against President Trump, his family, those in his administration, and those who support him. Rather than face criticism for such rhetoric, they are frequently rewarded with laughter and applause or are granted a pass because their frustration is rooted in politically correct causes.

IS TRUMP PROTECTING US FROM NATIONAL JUDGMENT? (PART 2)

We now have a president who is actively striving to turn our nation away from sinful practices that invoke God’s judgment. We’ve already considered how President Trump is confronting a culture of lies, endeavoring to stop the shedding of innocent blood, and is providing aid to those who are oppressed, helpless, and poor. However, there are more areas where President Trump—whether he realizes it or not—is working to stave off calamity by resisting the very things that invoke God’s judgment.
