On Monday, reason prevailed as Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s president, Dr. Michael Driscol, announced that senior Lake Ingle would be allowed to return to his religious studies class needed for graduation.
Ingle was kicked out of that class by Professor Allison Downie and accused of violating the schools Academic Integrity Code. What was Ingle’s crime? He dared to question the premise that there are more than two genders.
For the uninitiated, discussions on college campuses and most public schools have turned into politically correct indoctrinations where no contrary facts or opinions are allowed. If one dares to question one’s teacher or professor, the student is often “shamed” into silence. Hardly a healthy environment for learning! Continue reading “Sex or Gender? (At One University Reason Prevailed)”
If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. Mark 9:42
It’s little wonder that children in public schools from religious households are likely to dabble with all manner of sexual activity before they graduate. In many, if not most, school districts they are constantly being told that anything-goes-as-long-as-it-goes-with-a-condom and that one lifestyle is just as good as another. It’s a constant drumbeat from kindergarten through high school.
Our young people are being pushed to experiment with both sexes to find out if they are straight or gay. Then, they are told that bisexuality may be their true nature. If none of that works, why not try identifying with the opposite gender? Now, the Department of Education has informed schools that they must let students use the restroom or locker room of their choice in order to conduct these experiments or simply sneak a peek at the opposite sex.
It’s little wonder that many Christians have given up on the nation’s public schools. Others feel trapped and simply try to combat the the anything-goes hedonistic message their children receive at school with a strong moral message at home. It’s an uphill battle. Children are in school or involved in school activities some 40 hours a week. If you subtract the hours they spend sleeping and doing homework, you can readily see the imbalance.

We now know that Omar Mateen, the mass murderer who shot up that gay night club in Orlando, had experimented with homosexuality, visited gay dating sites and was a regular at Pulse.
I would not pretend to know what was going on inside the mind of a man who would do such a thing. However, we do know that his life was in conflict, born into a strict Muslim family and educated in our public schools which are now training grounds for this kind of sexual activity.
If you are not aware of this fact, than you simply don’t know what is going on in your local school. Continue reading “How to Get the Fed out of Our Public Schools”
Much has been written about the power of one. One person can literally change the world. Most of us look at such individuals as exceptional people, those blessed with a great talent or skill. We tell ourselves, “Certainly, this doesn’t apply to people like me.”
We’re full of excuses like I’m too young or too old or too busy. Perhaps we hesitate because our perspective is simply too large. What if we didn’t set out to change the world, just the world around us.
Recently, I was moved by reports from two individuals, one who could be classified too young, the other too old. Continue reading “The Power of One”
