The show features a homosexual couple and "their" young child. Of course it is not their child: children cannot come into the world through two men. But the thrust of the show -- like so many others -- is to convince the gullible masses that family can mean whatever we want it to, and no family structure is any better than any other.Read more
It is a complement to Western society that the majority of us have certainly navigated past the first four levels. As we are more healthy and wealthy than ever before, most of us no longer need to focus on our basic survival needs. We have the time and freedom to create the upper level of need - to self-actualise, fulfil our potential and create a better society.Read more
In terms of religion, the 554 athletes of Team USA are a cross-section of the nation they represent, with Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, Buddhist and Muslim members, among others. It also has members who -- like 23 percent of Americans -- are unaffiliated with any religion and who, perhaps like 7 percent of Americans, say they do not believe in God or are agnostic.
But Boudia's and Johnson's remarks raise a question: Does religious faith give an athlete any sort of edge?Read more
As a father who has watched his son go to war three times I cannot fathom the pain if he had not come home. But I know exploitation when I see it. I also learned a long time ago that whenever a public stance is taken there will be others who think differently and will quickly make their displeasure known. In the vernacular don't give what you are unwilling to take.Read more
It took an obscure order issued on the last day of the recent term for Justice Samuel Alito to drive home the point.

All Muslims are exhorted to the greater jihad, to strive against the flesh and persevere in the purposes of Allah, but not all jihad is holy war. All Muslims are not Islamists, but Muslims are becoming terrorists. It is futile, patronising and dangerous to deny it. Islamists are extremists who kill the innocent; Muslims who are moderate and enlightened seek to worship in peace. Islam is not all about oppressing, torturing, murdering and slaughtering. It just seems like it.Read more
'Twas Self that moved my heart to sing
And Self my dream to be lived;
How I boosted my self-esteeming
The hour I first believed
When we've been here for billions of years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing Self's praise
Than when we've first begun
The reason for the attack seems perfectly clear -- an attack on Christians at mass by Muslim jihadists hardly needs parsing, does it? -- as indeed the French prime minister, Manuel Valls, observed when he said on Twitter that the 'barbaric' attack was a blow to Catholics and the whole of France. 'We will stand together,' he said. How, exactly?Read more
When German writer and public speaker Gabriele Kuby talks about the effects of the West’s student revolution of 1968 she knows her stuff. She was there, at the Free University of Berlin, studying sociology and gung-ho with the anti-authoritarianism of the era.Read more
