A major new study shows that masks don't stop the spread of COVID. Will the mandaters apologize?

'Feminist Fecundity' won't work unless it's also 'Familist Fecundity'

In the early 2010s, liberal feminists in major newspapers attacked mothers and fathers who had too many children for their “smug fecundity.” Subsequently, amid a historic baby bust, liberal feminists in major newspapers are in full reverse, peddling the idea of "Feminist Fecundity.” → Read More

Neutrality is a myth: Public schools have always been religious

From New York to D.C. to L.A., with lots of Loudoun Counties in between, large school districts are openly embracing a very specific and very radical religion. George Soros-influenced school boards and untethered left-wing teachers trained at far-left teachers' colleges have abandoned the pretense of neutrality and are explicitly proselytizing their worldview and ideology. → Read More

Climate change is a real problem. So is depopulation. Conservative columnist Ross Douthat makes the case in the New York Times that one is worse than the other. → Read More

Empty pews, full morgues

In the 1990s, media elites feared America’s apparently ascendant religiosity, particularly the “evangelicals.” In the 2000s, they cheered the decline of religiosity and the spread of secularism. In the 2010s, the cheers quieted a bit when the more astute began to see what a less religious America looked like. → Read More

Fear is the tone of the day. → Read More

Halal's well that ends well

“Ritual sacrifice” and “throat slitting,” in the political context, are typically used in a metaphorical sense. When animal welfare, food safety, and free exercise of religion intersect, however, we start using them literally. → Read More

Larry Hogan is betting on a Reaganite revival

ANNAPOLIS — Walking into Maryland’s State House is stepping out of time. The brick Georgian-style building, trimmed with marble and topped with a wooden dome, is the oldest continuously operating legislative building in the nation. → Read More

Don’t be fooled — environmentalists and regulators are trying to ban gas stoves

It can be dizzying to follow any policy debate that touches on party politics and culture. On one day, major left-leaning news outlets were reporting on proposals to ban gas stoves, and liberal politicians and commentators were applauding the move. → Read More
