You have a job, Christian. Indoctrinate your children, raise them in the faith. Sending them to be raised by the world for 30+ hours a week and thinking that you can counter all the world’s indoctrination is stupidity. This is your job. If you don’t do it, someone else will. They are more than willing.

Sharks Are Lurking

We were at a local beach with our kids a few weeks ago. A weekend out, away from the stress of the world. My daughter, ever the friendly one, was playing with a young boy when I got a sick, deep in my stomach feeling. I approached the lad and asked, “Bud, what’s your name?” He responded, “My name is Ivy and I’m a girl. I can prove it, I have seven Barbies at home.”

Let us be clear, girls do not talk this way and Ivy was not a girl.

Not having encountered this kind of situation yet, I pulled my daughter aside and told her that she cannot call him a girl as this is a lie, but could call the young man Ivy. I allowed my daughter to continue playing with him, but we stayed close. All the interactions were strained and weird.

What I learned at home shook me to my core. My daughter told my wife that she was playing with the young boy and a group of children. They split up boys and girls to play a game. The boy then yelled at my daughter, demanding that she call him a girl or he wouldn’t play with her. He kept scolding her until she caved and said, “fine, you’re a girl!”

Parents. I failed. My gut said to get her away, to protect her, but my heart assumed that this boy wasn’t going to do anything while I was close. Unfortunately he had already done it before I realized what was happening. And I am furious.

This child was taught to manipulate other children. His mother was close by. My daughter felt violated, didn’t know how to tell us there. Didn’t understand why this boy was yelling at her.

This is the insidious part of transgenderism. It would be one thing if they lived their lives and let us live ours. But that isn’t how it works. They must force us to participate in their charade. But to participate is to bear false witness. To lie. My daughter knew this boy wasn’t a girl, but she wanted to play. That’s why we were at the beach. To have fun, to decompress. But this young child decided to prey on her, to force her to lie. And all she wanted was to play so he took advantage of that to force her.

Let me speak clearly, we have learned a lesson in my house. My guard is sharpened.

Parents, this is what is lurking below the waves. Be vigilant. They want you to speak their lies. To deny truth. And they dance in the streets chanting that they are coming for your children. Trust them when they say that. They are.

Why Do We Despise Children?

Why do the children of modernity hate children so much? Why do we pump our women full of synthetic-hormone-cocktails, a chemical “No Trespassing” sign? We celebrate chemically barren wombs like our great-grandparents celebrated fruitful wombs. We haven’t managed an elixir to castrate the men quite so efficiently as of yet, but most of them are quite tame already, virtual geldings.

And when some hapless child slips through our poison gauntlet, we take great care to chop her up and vacuum her out, limb by tiny limb—don’t worry, it’s just a medical procedure. We’re highly advanced like that.

Why do we despise children?

Calling Their Apocalyptic Bluff by Brian Sauvé

I’m tired. I saw a tweet yesterday, from an account that has since gone private, that said that you cannot be pro-life while the foster care system still exists. The arguments the gal made in the replies was clear: you cannot oppose abortion if you haven’t adopted all the children. Put differently, we should be supporting the killing of children unless we are willing to adopt all those that are without parents.

Our culture hates children.

And our culture hates parents that parent. Their argument is simple. Get out of the way and let us raise your kids. Anything else is abusive.

How dare Matt Walsh keep his children off the Internet! How dare Matt Walsh homeschool his children! How dare Matt Walsh control what they watch! How dare Matt Walsh parent. Christian, you are no more a bad parent for preventing your children from surfing YouTube than you are for not tossing them in with the lions at the zoo.

Let me give you a theological answer: There is a great and chasmic antithesis yawning in the hearts of fallen man—a hatred of God that goes down to the bone. We hate our little ones because we hate the God in whose image they are knit together. This is why ours is a world where some of the very people crying out to save the whales and protect the sacred migrational corridors of arboreal squirrels also advocate for the murder of children in the womb; the babies bear God’s image—the whales don’t.

If you hate God, you will hate him every place you see him. […] It’s why we slaughter babies in the name of preventing climate change, like Aztecs ripping out hearts to ensure the rising of the Sun the next day.

Culture. The word comes from the Latin word for worship. Same word we get cult from. The modern culture is a cult of death.

Christian, you are to go forth, be fruitful, and multiply. You are to raise your children in the Word. You are to protect them. And it is a tiring job, especially today as the lions get restless. But keep up the good fight.

Show the unbelieving world that what they believe are resource-suckers are actually resources. Show the world that our kids aren’t thieves, but weapons—and teach the enemy to fear.

May your daughters be mothers of ten-thousands. May your sons possess the gates of their enemies.

Taking Parenting Advice From Dragons

Scorpions strike, vipers bite, and dragons burn cities.

Washington State just passed a law that allows the government to take your child away if your child wants to be sterilized and you say “no, you are a child”. These arguments are being made by demon-possessed people that slaughter their own children at the altar of Molech and have the audacity to ask Christians if they are sure they want more minorities born as that is what will happen when we outlaw the murder of babies. These slithering serpents now complain that the upright are having too many children while they make eunuchs of themselves in some grotesque cosplay.

The dragons smell, tongue flitting at the sulfuric air, their demise and know that what is coming is the upright outnumbering them. The demographic studies make clear that outside the religious, population is in decline. If we raise our children in the faith, prepare them to push the dragons back, the dragons see that we will win. Their “progress” is about to be rewound.

The whispers are getting louder.

The Accuser is saying that we are targeting children, that we are committing genocide, that we are bringing death, all while his unholy acolytes sacrifice their own at his throne and mutilate themselves to end their lineages.

Who is leading them to slaughter and who is trying to prevent it?

Word of advice, Christian parents, don’t let those that call evil good and good evil give you parenting advice. Don’t let those that are sterilizing the children they have and murdering those they don’t want tell you that you are a bad parent.

Stay the course. Raise your children in the Word. Prepare them to take up their cross daily. Dragons prowl near. Prepare them to push back the dragons for the good of the Kingdom.

But for all your words, O man
all your clever follies, and
Your babels piercing clouds
You’re just dust and potter’s clay
Kiss the son, lest in his way
He dash you to the ground

Such Clever Follies by Brian Sauvé

School choice is not really about freedom. Freedom, of course, is a bedrock American value. But the kind of “freedom” associated with the flight away from integration and toward racial isolation will never lead to a more truly free United States.


As a father, I want what is best for my daughter. As I’ve seen schools become more and more liberal, push liberal political doctrine, and sexual ethics— such as Illinois passing a few years back a new sexual education program that included teaching kindergarteners about masturbation— I’ve very much moved towards either homeschooling or private schooling my daughter.

Not once has it crossed my mind to do so to keep her from “children of color”. Not once has it been to keep her from other children at all. And I know many homeschool mothers and private school fathers out there that have never once thought this way. It has only ever been about her education.

This is a prime example of race-baiting. I want a better education for my daughter, so I’m a racist.

It’s tempting to imagine this means that the first humans called their parents mama and dada, and that those two warm, hearty words have survived the slings and arrows of human history to remain in use today. But the notion is too good to be true. Over time in language, sounds smush along their way to becoming new ones, and even the meanings people assign to a word drift all over the place.


The answer lies with babies and how they start to talk. The pioneering linguist Roman Jakobson figured it out. If you’re a baby making a random sound, the easiest vowel is ah because you can make it without doing anything with your tongue or lips. Then, if you are going to vary things at all, the first impulse is to break up the stream of ahhh by closing your lips for a spell, especially since you’ve been doing that to nurse. Hence, mmmm, such that you get a string of mahs as you keep the sound going while breaking it up at intervals.


Papa and dada happened for a similar pan-human reason. After babies begin making m with their lips, they pick up making a sound that involves a little more than just putting their lips together—namely, putting them together, holding them that way for a second, and then blowing out a puff of air. That’s p—or, depending on your mood, b. Alternatively, babies also start playing with their mouths a little further back from the lips—on that ridge behind the upper teeth that we burn inconveniently by sipping soup when it’s too hot. That’s where we make a t or a d. The order in which babies learn to make sounds explains why the next closest usual caretaker to mom is so often called papa or baba (or tata or dada).

The Atlantic

Yes, it is tempting to imagine that the first humans called their parents mama and dada. You can believe that evolution made babies start with two sound groups and emotions immediately tie them to people, or you can believe that God designed us to know what to call our parents from the get go. Simplest answer is likely correct.

Upgraded my Infant to the Toddler beta tonight. Between a few sessions, we logged a dozen steps on the pedometer. Still pretty buggy, with a few crashes within minutes of each other.

French child psychiatrists, on the other hand, view ADHD as a medical condition that has psycho-social and situational causes. Instead of treating children’s focusing and behavioral problems with drugs, French doctors prefer to look for the underlying issue that is causing the child distress—not in the child’s brain but in the child’s social context. They then choose to treat the underlying social context problem with psychotherapy or family counseling. This is a very different way of seeing things from the American tendency to attribute all symptoms to a biological dysfunction such as a chemical imbalance in the child’s brain.

Love this view. Great article and something anyone with children should be looking at. My wife, for one, was prescribed ADHD medicine before her teenage years and they never had an end date on that prescription. The amount that a person changes in their teens and twenties is huge. Instead of a child learning to deal with their circumstances, their social context, and their body, we dull it with medicine. A bandaid, if you may. My wife came off her meds a couple years ago and has been doing great ever since.

Think before you take meds to solve a problem, as it may just be fixing a symptom of a greater problem.

Here’s the thing. We all have a sin problem. Often times we make mistakes that directly affect others. While sexual sins are often considered the worst, we must recognize that as Christ has forgiven our sins, so must we forgive others. If things are the way they appear to have been, 14-year-old Josh Duggar made some bad choices. Instead of taking this public and ruining his life, the family dealt with it in a biblical manner, seeking wise council and help from the Church. Forgiveness was sought and given. This was now 10 years ago.

As a church, we should applaud the way that this was dealt with– if this proves to be accurate— and see this as a model way of running our families when sin rears it’s ugly head.

We should also, as a church, pray for this family in this hard time. The world loves to drag out our sins and call us hypocrites. It makes it all the more important for Christians to publicly declare that we are not perfect, sinless, Jesus freaks. No, we are broken, weary men and women that have recognized our need of a savior. We need to pray for our fellow brothers and sisters that they stay strong under this attack and show what Christ would want.
