  • The ACA Should Practice What it Preaches (May 5, 2016)


    Tennessee recently passed a commonsense bill to protect the religious liberty rights of counselors.  The bill was portrayed by some as controversial, but in reality, all it did was restore the American Counseling Association’s ethics guidelines to where they had been for decades up until 2014. 

    The ACA did not agree with the bill so in response, they are now contemplating a location change for their 2017 conference, already scheduled to be in Nashville. 

    It is ironic that the ACA, which requires counselors to bracket or set aside their personal goals in order to serve a client, is not willing to apply to its organization the same rules it requires of it counselors.  And it says that counselors must continue a counseling relationship even if there’s a philosophical disagreement. 

    It seems the ACA needs to start practicing what it preaches.

  • The Bill Conservatives Overlooked (April 27, 2016)

    With the media focused on social conservative legislation, few conservatives noticed a bill on administrative procedures that may have a significant impact on controlling the growth of government in Tennessee. 

    House bill 2068 limits the ability of government agencies to issue rules and regulations, which is important because liberals increasingly use bureaucrats to push their agenda through regulations. 

    For example, the U.S. Department of Education is attempting to reinterpret Title IX to say that “sex” doesn’t mean” sex” but means “gender identity” for purposes of school bathrooms and locker rooms.

    Tennessee’s bureaucratic agencies must now prove by convincing evidence that a rule is necessary and essential to better serve the people, not the government.  The Legislature asserting more control over these agencies is a good step toward restoring power to its rightful place—the people and their elected representatives.

  • The Times That Try Men’s Souls (April 20, 2016)

    The Human Rights Campaign has gathered a gang of out-of-state big business bullies to intimidate Tennessee legislators in an effort to kill the so-called “bathroom bill.” Their threats are causing some to cower.

    And it was into a similar situation to encourage George Washington’s dispirited troops that Thomas Paine wrote the famous phrase “these are the times that try men’s souls.”

    While that quote is familiar and applicable today, what followed that line in Paine’s pamphlet is also applicable: “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this occasion with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”

    Unfortunately, the House Representative sponsoring the bill decided not to ask for a vote on the bill this year. Perhaps the needed courage will be there next year and triumph then will be even sweeter.

  • Which Bathroom Will You Choose? (April 13, 2016)

    Some Tennessee politicians are not happy about being putting in a tough spot by the so-called “bathroom bill.” The ACLU and its allies want students to be able to pick a bathroom or locker room based on what sex they think they are. Most Tennesseans want students to use the bathroom or locker room designated for use based on their biological sex.

    Legislators and the Governor must decide whether sex is a biological reality or a psychological construct and then base the law on how their worldview answers that question.

    However, some are looking for a “third way.” But there is no third way. That’s not how God made the world — we must make choices between one thing and its opposite. If politicians are not happy, then perhaps their discontent is really with God for making them choose.

  • The New War Between the States (April 6, 2016)

    A new “War Between the States” has emerged, and like the first one, this War also focuses on state sovereignty and an important moral issue – whether to allow men into women’s bathrooms. 

    Recently, the Governors of New York and Connecticut banned all non-essential travel to North Carolina because of their law that requires men and women to use bathroom facilities of their biological sex.  While this new War does not need to end like the first one, maybe the other issue of that War – state sovereignty – will provide the reasonable solution intended by our Founders.  Those that like the policy of New York can stay there, and those who have the common sense to keep men out of women’s restrooms can migrate South. 

    Maybe that is how the South will win this new “War Between the States.”
