Canada's ruling political party has introduced a bill that would ban anti-transgender speech, including both gender identity and gender expression, with up to 2 years in prison for violators.

The bill is an incremental extension of their existing "Hate Speech" laws.

How they got to this point should be as alarming as the new expanded "hate speech" law itself.

And yes, far left progressives in the US are communicating with far Left progressives in Canada.

A new Barna Group Poll asked Americans whether capitalism or socialism align better with the teachings of Jesus.

A little more than 24% say Jesus aligns more with socialism, while 14% say He doesn't---the rest responded with "neither" or "not sure."

When asked which presidential candidate's policies was most closely aligned with Jesus' teaching, a majority said "Bernie."

The religious Left have been casting Jesus as closely aligned with the Left and their social justice for some time, but was Jesus really a socialist?

Adrift In A Moral Fog-- As WH Straightens Out Bathroom Controversy

As the news continues to be dominated by Obama's bathroom policies---and America's strong dissent of those policies---the White House came out, so to speak, yesterday and straightened things out.

Obama's spokesman Josh Earnest, after embracing the notion that gender is as much mental as it is physical, he said, "This is a confrontation that Republicans have sought out rather cynically because they are seeking political advantage."

Translation: If you are unwilling to compromise common sense and the safety of women and young girls, you are irresponsible, cynical and politically motivated.

We are adrift in a moral fog.

Amid their self-inflicted financial pain, Target is making some changes at the top.

They have hired ex-Nordstrom executive Mark Tritton to help fix their lingering problem.

Since many Christians and conservatives have decided to skip shopping at Target because of their anti-female bathroom and changing room policies, stockholders are feeling the pain, while Target executives seem to be in denial.

Sales and stock market value are down, as Target boasts about its so-called Corporate Equality Index rating.

Yesterday afternoon, Donald Trump released a list of potential Supreme Court nominees should he be elected president.

President Obama angered millions of Americans last week when he threatened to withhold federal funds from schools that did not submit to his decree regarding bathrooms and gender confusion.

Some governors and state legislatures are pushing back---but the "millions of people" are now wondering, "What can I personally do to make a difference?"

How can I, too, push back on this and other immoral doctrines of this administration?

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told students and graduates at Hillsdale College Saturday how to make a difference in the culture.

Some thoughts on the Christian art of pushing back---and becoming "a stone in the shoe."
