(Faith & Freedom) Shakespeare asked, "What`s in a name?"

His question demonstrates the nature of the ongoing Great War on the Culture of 2016---where words, or the lack of them, are the weapons of destruction.

The Withering of Vice and the Sexual Revolution

(Albert Mohler) The question remains, how did all this happen? As already noted, the sexual revolution did not emerge in a vacuum. Modern societies created a context for moral revolution that had never been available in intellectual terms before. In other words, certain cultural conditions had to prevail in order for the revolution to get the traction it needed to succeed. One of the things we need to note is that we are looking at an explicitly cosmopolitan revolution.  (Read More)
