The Sexual Utilitarian Philosophy Your Kids Learn

For many teenagers, pornography is their primary source of sex education.  This is because the sex education they are getting at home and/or in school is inadequate.  They may learn about puberty, conception and birth, contraception and sexually transmitted diseases, but they learn nothing about God’s plan for sexuality and healthy relationship...

Senator Ben Sasse on How to Overcome Our Parenting Crisis

The goal of parenthood is to raise our children into adults. And as you might have noticed, we are failing miserably at this task. Senator Ben Sasse reflects on the urgency of addressing this crisis in his book, The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis—and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance (St. Martin’s, 2017). He states h...

Do You Want to be Educated?

Mr. Brian Jones There will be many of them soon, and only a few, in retrospect, will be worth listening to or reading. Of course, I am speaking of the college commencement address. Commencement speeches are delivered by individuals that a university has decided best imitates the school’s various missions. Only in rare instances does a commence...

The Ultimate Answer

“What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything?” If you have read Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe, the answer should be humorously memorable.  The ultimate answer is 42.  Yes, this number is the key to life, the universe and everything.

Wise Men, The Nothingness of Eastern Religions, and the Somethingness of Christianity

A brilliant and valiant teacher named John Senior is continuing to be discovered by those startled by today’s shadowy darkness, especially through a newly published biography. Interestingly, Senior could be described as an apostle of shadows, not because shadows are not real but because they point to the fact that things are real. How else could ...

Purpose. Meaning. Destiny.

My conversion to the Catholic faith came about largely through the witness of one of my (public) high school teachers. He is a man of God who understands profoundly that the knowledge of Truth is the end goal of all education. There were many things my teacher said that stood out to me and remain in my memory to this day. Few of them stand out as m...

Too Good to Be True? A Historical Look at The Gospels.

At the core of Christianity is the historical reality of the Incarnation, the fact that the infinite God took on a human nature.  However, as any historian can tell you, a historical narrative is only as trustworthy as the sources from which we learn about it.  The last several centuries have seen a wave of anti-Christian historians who hold that...

The Transgender Movement Is Especially Dangerous for Boys

It is a bit ironic that the “bathroom wars” began in Charlotte, NC, my home state.[1] While we war over whether or not a man is a man, or just seems that way, North Carolina’s motto remains engraved in stones around the state: Esse quam videri, which is Latin for “to be, rather than to seem”. Like I said – ironic. Of course, I th...

8 Ways to Put the Fear of God in Your Children

The concept a man has of God guides his whole life.  If he considers God a far-off being with no concern for mankind, he will return the favor and have no concern for God.  If Jesus is a softie who advocates a spineless resignation that he calls “love,” a man will never stand up to defend the truth of the faith.  If he perceives God to be a ...

Political Form and Modern Liberalism

Mr. Brian Jones In reflecting upon the goodness of early American New England townships, the French political writer Alexis de Tocqueville wrote the following: “The inhabitant of New England is attached to his township because it is strong and independent; he is interested in it because he cooperates in directing it; he loves it...he places...
