The Associated Press has an interesting article on the (routine) decision by the United States to vote against a UN resolution calling on nations to ban pro-Nazi language and organizations. (Efforts have been made to remind people this isn’t new under President Trump; the US has voted against this annual resolution for years.)
In what seems like a rare moment of clarity, the government is defending exactly what Americans claim they value: free speech, even if it is offensive speech. The government is not acting to silence Read more
I think we’re getting quite comfortable in our society limiting ideas and exposure to ideas. And maybe that’s a symptom of it. I don’t know.
But I don’t think its good for the next generation…I learned a tremendous amount in the Carnegie Library simply being exposed to a range of ideas.

Activists for military homosexual groups have filed amicus briefs opposing the Masterpiece Cakeshop in its appeal to the US Supreme Court. The bakery was accused of violating state law when it declined to create a cake for a same-sex “wedding” (see records of the case).
Apparently fearing a victory for Masterpiece Cakeshop would inhibit homosexuals’ rights within the military, Ashley Broadway — a self-described homosexual “devout Christian” — of the American Military Partner Association said (with authority):
A business that is open to the public should be open to public — period. LGBT service members and their families sacrifice so much around the world for our country, and the last thing they deserve is to be denied service here at home simply because of who they are.

Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, asked last week if the US military was creating its own problems by sending “mixed signals on morality”. Speaking on the recent firing of an Army General who had sent “flirty” messages to another man’s wife, Perkins said:
It is wrong because its immoral. It violates the moral law of the Creator.
But this is what happens when society thinks it can give a green light to some forms of immoral behavior while red lighting others. You end up with moral confusion…

US Army Chief of Staff Gen Mark Milley made headlines recently when he told his commanders the Army must “pray for peace, but prepare for war.”
As soldiers, as America’s sentinels of freedom, we will pray for peace every day. But at the same time, the U.S. Army will prepare for war.
The highest ranking US Read more
President Trump, as the first sitting President to speak at the Values Voter Summit:
We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values.
We know that it’s the family and the church, not government officials, that know best how to create strong and loving communities.
And above all else, we know this: In America, we don’t worship government — we worship God. Inspired by that conviction, we are returning moral clarity to our view of the world and the many grave challenges we face.
America is a nation of believers, and together Read more
The website over at SOFREP claims to have access to one-of-a-kind photographs from the early days of the US Army’s Delta Team via George E. Hand IV, a SOFREP and one time Delta operator. The photograph above is from 1980 — when a then-unknown Army officer led 100 unknown Delta Force operators in prayer prior to a major operation.
