Some Good News —For a Change

Parents Getting Some Help

Parents are coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic with a new awareness of the deficiencies of the government schools. It awoke the "momma bear" when she looked over the shoulder of her student studying at home and saw all the “woke” propaganda and gender confusion.

When she went to the school board meetings and began to read the filth that was in the school libraries, board members had to turn off the live streams. Parents have organized a groundswell that is replacing school board members, electing new governors and lawmakers, and putting many alternative methods of education on steroids.

Home schoolers have doubled, new charter schools are springing up, and now the parents are demanding their money back. A few places had dabbled with school vouchers for some time, but now are widely looked at along with Education Savings Accounts (ESAs), scholarship programs, and tax credits.

These parents have proven that, working together, we don’t have to put up with Satan’s steamroller of lies that has polluted our culture.

Buyer’s Remorse for Transgender Transitioners

Satan’s dream of total acceptance of homosexuality is getting a wake-up call. The more horrific effects of hormone therapies, puberty blockers and surgical genital mutilation are being exposed by vocal de-transitioners. The teenage girls that were railroaded into this life-altering lifestyle are emerging into womanhood with unbelievable horror stories.

One articulate 18-year-old from California farm country named Chloe Cole is making the circuits describing her life after puberty blockers probably left her sterile and with no breasts to nurse any future children.

She describes in detail how a dysfunctional family left her vulnerable. Images on Instagram seduced her to believe that her boyish body would never measure up to Hollywood’s voluptuous standard. Therefore, this must mean that she was in the wrong body. Eager adults capitalized on her youthful obliviousness and cheered her into full transition. Remembering the dismay she had when removing the bandages, she weeps even today.

Abigail Shrier is a Wall Street Journal columnist. When the de-transitioners began to emerge, her news nose smelled a story. She wrote an article that had a huge response and she went looking for the facts.

What she found was a generation of young girls caught in the same trap with Chloe. She could find no one who had spoken up about this and her research turned into a book, “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters”.

Understandably, booksellers, such as Amazon, have been caught between those violently opposed to her message, and other influencers who see it as a valid exposure of a modern social tragedy. Shrier has also weathered the usual violent harassment anyone receives who dares walk into this minefield.

At the end of a video interview with Jordan B. Peterson, Shrier summed it up: “The lies have to stop!” But to stop the lies, the truth must be told, widely. Gospel tracts that contain the words of God are a perfect medium to do that.

The Motto Still Stands

“In God We Trust” as the U.S. motto was signed into law by Dwight D. Eisenhower July 30, 1956, two years after the phrase “under God” was added to the Pledge of Allegiance.

Now, several states have agreed that the motto needs more exposure. West Virginia lawmakers are considering making it mandatory that the motto be displayed in a “conspicuous place” in all the government buildings including public schools. Similar laws have already been passed in several other states.

May this small step be given an outsized impact by the God in whom we must trust for all things good and beautiful.
