Albert Mohler: God Made Us in His Image, Male and Female

A recent article in the New York Times demands our attention. The headline: “Sex Does Not Mean Gender. Equating Them Erases Trans Lives.”

The author argues that sex should not be equated with gender—because gender is a socially-constructed reality that does not have anything to do with biological sex.

But basic reality is indeed tied integrally and inseparably from biology. In sex—as male and female—we are looking at basic reality, part of the created order.

The author goes on to state: “In fact, stop using sex-based words to refer to people at all. They’re words for bodies, not for people with hearts and souls and minds.”

But keep this in mind—we are created as individuals who are a unity— body and soul.

We are who we are, including our bodies, because God made us this way and He made us in His image.

Michael Medved: Let’s Debate Virtues, Not Vices

The New York Times seizes every opportunity to impute racist motives to Donald Trump, even when reacting to positive announcements that shouldn’t be controversial.

After his Independence Day Eve speech at Mt. Rushmore, one Times headline read: “President Orders National Garden of Heroes, With List Mostly of White Men.” Actually,  Trump went out of his way to feature females and people of color, who comprised 12 names on his 30-person list.

That’s 40 percent—from Colonial flag-maker Betsy Ross, to Dr. King, to the ill-fated teacher-astronaut Christa McAuliffe. No honest history of America would devote more than 40 percent of its space to female and black leaders; for our first 200 years, white males—for better or worse—utterly dominated every field of endeavor.

Arguments over the “Garden of Heroes” bring one welcome feature: focusing on the virtues of candidates for new memorials, rather than stressing vices of those whose statues we seek to destroy.

Hugh Hewitt: Trump at Mount Rushmore

On Friday night last week, the president gave a stirring and patriotic 4th of July speech at Mount Rushmore.

But the reaction from critics and today’s elite media is more telling even than any criticism I could give of the left.

From the Los Angeles Times: “At Mount Rushmore, Trump uses 4th of July celebration to stoke a culture war.”

And the New York Times: “Trump uses Mount Rushmore speech to deliver divisive culture war message.”

And the Associated Press: “Trump pushes racial division, flouts virus rules at Rushmore.”

And I could go on and on.

When you’ve got the left saying up is down and blue is red, then you’ve got obviously an inversion of truth and objectivity in the media.

The need for alternative voices—like mine—and alternative outlets—like the one you’re listening to right now—has never been greater.

Simply put: President Trump’s speech was one of his best.
