Are Charter Schools in Kentucky a Threat?
September 18, 2018 by Staff
An interesting question was recently posed in a major publication: "How would you respond if you stumbled across a headline that asked, 'How much do farmers markets cost Walmart?"  It presupposes that the customer belongs to Walmart; and any time customers shop elsewhere, they're “robbing” the grocery giant. The context was in response to the introduction o...
Religious Freedom Crackdown in China
September 17, 2018 by Staff
Police in riot gear barricaded the front doors of the Christian school and arrested the pastor who led the school. It was eventually shut down the other week. Crosses have been torn from churches and persecution of religious sects have intensified—not in the U.S. but in China.

The Things That Bind Us Together
September 13, 2018 by Staff
America seems as divided as ever before. Between Nike's controversial ad with Colin Kaepernick and the Supreme Court hearings over Brett Kavanaugh, we're a nation divided.

The Constitu...

Believe in Something
September 11, 2018 by Staff
Nike's major deal with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is creating a backlash. In 2016, the star quarterback decided to kneel during the national anthem as a protest to racial injustice. Nike's new ad campaign begins with a still shot of Kaepernick's face and underneath are the words: "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything." In response t...
Obstructing Kavanaugh

September 7, 2018 by Staff
There is much talk of tolerance and respect these days but news out of New York again reminds us that tolerance is too often a one-way street. The Catholic Charities of Buffalo was forced to close their adoption and foster care services because the state is mandating that they place children in same-sex parented households which goes against their religious teaching.  Monica Mahaffey, a...
