The Disillusion of Millennial Evangelicals

BreakPoint

Though Gen Z-ers have all but replaced Millennials as the dazzling object of scrutiny and cultural analysis, it’s not because Millennials are no longer struggling. Rates of addiction, depression, burnout, and loneliness are all disproportionately high among the demographic born between 1981 and 1996. Since 2013, in fact, Millennials have seen a 47 percent increase in major depression diagnoses...

Biden’s Weakening of America

I usually hate to beat a dead horse as the saying goes but the Biden Administrations UTTER FAILURE in the withdrawal from Afghanistan leaves me no choice but to post more of these articles.


Barronelle Stutzman’s Long Obedience and the Failure of the Court

I am not an attorney so I have no clue how SCOTUS decides which cases it will hear and which ones it will turn away. One would have thought this case was a clear-cut violation of the owner’s rights. Maybe they deemed they had already settled the argument in MASTERPIECE CAKESHOP, LTD., ET AL. v. COLORADO CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION ET AL. But we all know the state of Colorado is still going after Mr. Phillips.

This is an excellent article on the matter.

On Friday, in an act of what can only be described as dereliction, the Supreme Court of the United States refused to hear the case of Arlene’s Flowers, Inc. vs. Washington. In refusing to hear this case, the Court has failed to bring clarity to a situation it ultimately created.

Why Defend Freedom for Everyone, Everywhere, All the Time?

The greatest enemy of freedom can be freedom.

One of the most important observations that I gleaned from one of Os Guinness’s books is that celebrating the acquisition of liberty and freedom (what we celebrate this weekend is our acquisition of freedom) is typical in the world’s history. But what is really unusual is sustaining freedom…

When Inclusivity Becomes Incoherence

Like his Democratic predecessor, President Biden has prioritized LGBTQ rights in both the domestic and foreign policies of the United States. The administration’s priorities were made most obvious in early June when an enormous rainbow flag was hung outside the U.S. embassy to the Vatican. While “trolling” the Roman Catholic Church isn’t usually a diplomatic priority, officials made their intentions clear by tweeting: “The U.S. Embassy to the Holy See celebrates #PrideMonth with the Pride flag on display during the month of June. The United States respects the dignity and equality of LGBTQI+ people”…

Is China’s Next Leap Forced Procreation?

BP Email Header-01

China’s next great leap forward could be forced procreation, and it’s animated by the same ideas that energize so much of the West. In 1957, Chinese dictator Mao Zedong told a Yugoslav official that his nation did not fear a nuclear attack: “What if they killed 300 million of us?” he said. “We would still have many people left.”…

How Dads Change with Fatherhood

In the 1987 flick starring Tom Selleck, Three Men and a Baby, a trio of bachelors share a New York apartment and they take turns bringing home one-night stands. All seems to be going according to this hedonistic plan until one of their one-night stands leaves a baby at their doorstep…

Loving Our Neighbors by Refusing to Lie

BreakPoint Daily

When John McCain was running for President in 2008, Saturday Night Live ran a recurring skit about his running-mate, then-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Tina Fey, playing Gov. Palin in her trademark red suit, delivered the memorable line, “I can see Russia from my house!”

It was pretty funny. It also wasn’t real. Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house. Today, however, a surprising number of people believe she did. This is a testimony to the power of lies…

Does Trevor Lawrence Have Too Much Character to be the NFL’s #1 Pick?

FYI, I have not watched a game of Pro-(US) Football since the Kaepernick incident. In fact, I have pretty much given up on all pro sports since their wokeism has taken center stage. Here is a story of one young man who seems to be above the hoopla.

BreakPoint Daily

Most people (at least those paying attention) expect quarterback Trevor Lawrence to be the first player selected in this year’s NFL Draft. Frankly, his draft stock has been a foregone conclusion since his heralded arrival at Clemson in 2018, and it was only strengthened after he led the Tigers to the National Championship as only a freshman. He’s a team leader who can read a defense and flat-out throw the ball.

In fact, the only doubts that exist about Lawrence’s potential in the NFL have nothing to do with talent or poise but concern his character. That is, some pundits worry Lawrence has too much character.
