Dennis Prager discusses the New York Times profile on PragerU, and while not a hit piece, it does bring even more exposure to PragerU to the Left, who waste no time ripping into Prager in the comment section. The comments about the PragerU profile are most illuminating. The anger, disdain and disgust expressed toward Dennis and PragerU tell a lot about the Left. Not all the comments were negative, though. Some were eloquent in PragerU’s defense.Read More »
“Federal judge nullifies conscience rule backed by Trump White House.”
That was a recent headline in the New York Times, reporting on the new rule—now vacated—where the Trump administration sought to extend additional conscience protections, especially for medical practitioners and medical institutions.
What we’re seeing today is an alarming willingness to sacrifice conscience on the altar of abortion and the transgender revolution.
Of course, many of the hospitals where there is conscientious objection are Catholic or Protestant or Jewish.
The attitude today is very revealing. It comes down to essentially this:
“We are thankful that you established all these schools and these hospitals, but we will take them now because we’re going to operate them by entirely secular norms in keeping with the LGBTQ revolution and the demand for abortion and all the rest. Just give us the keys, thank you very much.”
Now, more than ever, we must defend these rights of conscience.Read More »

Facebook has removed seven people identified as “extremists.”
The New York Times reported it this way:
After years of wavering about how to handle the extreme voices populating its platform, Facebook … evicted seven of its most controversial users, many of whom are conservatives, immediately inflaming the debate about the power and accountability of large technology companies.
But the Times made a point of identifying them as “conservative.”
Are we looking at a more ominous threat?
The question is: Is this the beginning of excising all unwanted speech from Facebook?
We don’t have any assurances that this is not the case.
And we know well the political and cultural climate at Facebook. When you consider the fact that 2.4 billion people on the planet use Facebook, we have every reason to be concerned.Read More »
