Wilmington, Delaware – ICBTS News At a small press conference in a long time family residence, former Vice President Joe Biden wiped away a tear as he took in the sight of a long hallway full of bronze wildlife statuary. “It’s been a lifetime of commissioning these beauties,” Biden said. “I had to find the..

High School Juniors There’s a sad day in a parent’s life when he comes to understand that his teenage child has the world figured out, and that mom and dad–once heroes–are hopelessly compromised. The child, now an adolescent, is seeking a much better world for himself, but he’s got at least seven or eight years..
Agents of Wrath As I’ve tried to explore recently, most of us have not gouged out our eyes and cut off our hands. I know Christians who have sold houses and fields and lands, but it’s usually to buy another set of houses and fields, with a little something extra for that mission trip to..
PC isn’t just annoying. It’s Dangerous. With the possible exception of gun owners and white guys over 40, we are not allowed to “generalize” or “profile” or “stereotype” in our culture, and I think all reasonable people understand why: if, say, God forbid, your wife were sexually assaulted by a Catholic, you would not be..
The United States Of America No Longer Exists? It’s a good thing Matt Walsh wasn’t there at the battle of Trenton. He certainly wasn’t there during the battle of Hillary. When George Washington’s army had dwindled to a mere 2,000 soldiers, down from 25,000 during the summer of 1776, it looked as though the American..
Early on in my married life, I was introduced to a Greek Orthodox tradition that involved showing up at the church with cups of a dish made (I think) from rice, cinnamon, and raisins and serving it to the congregants as they left the church. The ritual had something to do with remembering the dead..
I desperately cling to the idea of America because, over the course of my life, I’ve known too many immigrants who saw us (yes, us, with all of our problems) as the last best hope. My mother had a friend who escaped the Armenian genocide. As a boy, he saw a woman’s baby cut from..
Decent Folks Correct Their Children As I’ve written before, I firmly believe that racism is officially over in the United States, but that only applies to reasonably normal people. There is, in fact, an approved, coddled and utterly “unchained” kind of racism out there, and it flows at fire-hydrant volume from people who have been..
In a stunning theological development, pastor and “Desiring God” teacher John Piper has come to the conclusion that God is just not “big enough” to solve race problems. Employing his usual amorphous, affable and directionless prose, and employing the phrase ‘I don’t know’ for earnest emphasis three separate times, Piper admitted that race is just..
Mountain View, CA ICBTS News Thousands of left-leaning social network accounts have been frozen over the last two weeks due to an unintended side-effect associated with content-policing. It appears that the drive to de-monetize conservative blogs and block politically incorrect social network accounts has actually had a reverse effect. The anti-cliché component of the policing software..
