Tuesday Open Thread

Last night I gave a speech at our leadership institute entitled “Civility in Uncivil Times” the gist of which is that we are not necessarily more uncivil than other times in our past (as the above cartoon printed by Andrew Jackson supporters in 1828 attests — ditto JQA’s followers hounding Mrs. Jackson to her […]

An Unsafe Enterprise

Scott Ott wrote this shortly after the church shooting at Sutherland Springs, Texas. It is beautifully written and, in my mind, goes right to the heart of why the Christian faith is not for the feint of heart.

Here’s the transcript:

Churches cannot be made safe. We can station armed guards, and members of […]

Better late than gone forever

Thank God for patience and perserverence. More should-be bombshells at the full LawNewz story.

How To Succeed In Tech Without Really Trying

One of the feminist Left’s favorite pet issues is the gender gap in the tech sector. The gap exists, all right – women comprise only 24% of the tech industry and are expected to be even less in the future. The question is, why? The liberal narrative is as follows: there is widespread bias […]
