  • Calling Out the Real Bullies (June 15, 2016)


    After the bill protecting the liberty rights of professional counselors passed, some opponents of the bill called for “boycotts” of Tennessee, but a recent editorial against the bill criticized the boycott efforts because they “empower the bullies.”

    What? The alleged bullies the editorialist was referring to were the legislators who supported the counselor’s right of conscience. Wouldn’t a “bully” in this case be someone who wanted to try to force counselors to violate their conscience or face financial harm? Of course! And that is precisely what the author and the boycotters were advocating for.

    In a verbal “sleight of hand” the real bullies are trying to pin the bully label on those who actually resisted their efforts to bully counselors and the legislators who supported them. It is time we recognized just who are the real bullies.

  • The Ironic Result of Redefining Title IX (June 8, 2016)

    Title IX was designed to ensure equal opportunities in education for women, but its entire purpose may have been nullified by the recent federal court decision which held that the word “sex” in Title IX may also be read to encompass biological males who identify as females. 

    If the legal status of protected classes like race and sex are now based on an identity and not one’s actual race or sex, then it is reasonable to question the need or efficacy of all anti-discrimination laws. 

    The legal system is at a tipping point, is it going to address objective realities or will it become subject to the whims of judges deciding whether someone’s identity trumps another’s anatomy.  The practical result is that vital anti-discrimination laws may be rendered useless by the ironic efforts of those preaching “inclusion” and “tolerance.”

  • The Power of Redefining Words (June 1, 2016)

    The liberal movement, to their credit, has been masterful when it comes to redefining words and how they are to be understood by society.  For example, the term “homosexual,” which once referred to a limited group of people,   has given way to the concept of “sexual orientation” which is now applies to everyone.  The idea being that if everyone has a sexual orientation, then behavior in accordance with one’s “orientation” is natural and acceptable.  If the term “gender identity” takes the same path and receives legal protections, giving everyone a “gender identity” just like they have a “sexual orientation,” we will have effectively eliminated any male and female designation in society.  From privacy in locker rooms to the extinction of women’s-only sports teams, the power of those allowed to redefine words and their meanings will change society.

  • Will The State Defend Our Local Schools From Obama (May 25, 2016)

    After the Department of Education issued its “guidance letter” reinterpreting “sex” in Title IX to mean “gender identity,” the ACLU, predictably, filed a complaint asking the federal Office of Civil Rights to investigate Sumner County, Tennessee’s school system because it won’t allow a boy who thinks he’s a girl to use the girl’s bathroom.  Even then the Governor and Attorney General did not send a strong message to Tennessee’s schools that the state would engage and defend them. So legislators began to talk seriously about a special session to address the issue.

    Whether because of the legislature’s threat of action or an awakening to the reality of the threat our local schools faced, it now appears that the Attorney General is going to assert the state’s interest in the Sumner County investigation.

    Now let’s see if he does.

  • Pushed Toward a Tipping Point (May 18, 2016)

    With the recent lawsuits against the federal government challenging their redefinition of the word ‘sex’ from its biological definition to gender identity, the Court system is reaching a legal tipping point that will either restore the rule of law and the Constitution or destroy them both.

    If they uphold the ability of the federal government to simply issue a guidance letter that supersedes enacted laws and regulations, then the court effectively becomes a legislative body enforcing the desired policy of the Obama administration and disregarding established law and the principles of federalism and state sovereignty.

    The court has already overruled centuries of precedent to redefine marriage. If they ignore federal law and rules and redefine what it means to be male and female, will that finally push Americans to their ‘tipping point’ to demand Congress do something about it?
