SCOTUS Rules for Integrity of Voter Rolls
June 22, 2018 by Staff
The Supreme Court issued a ruling that allows states to update its voter rolls. But some are saying that it will disenfranchise voters. At issue is an Ohio law intended to make sure that their voter rolls are updated. It's a six year process where if a voter hasn't voted or signed a petition in two years, the secretary of state mails a notice to the voter to ask if they are still liv...
Answering the Objections to Churches Engaging Culture & Government
June 22, 2018 by Staff
The two topics to avoid in polite company are religion and politics, and pastors shouldn't speak about the latter. At least that's what we're told. But is it possible for pastors and churches to take seriously the Great Commission of discipling the nations without teaching about man's relationship to government, politics and public policy? This brief addresses common objectio...
LGBTQ Intolerance
June 21, 2018 by Staff
The CEO of Twitter got a taste of what shaming is like on social media. Last week Jack Dorsey tweeted that he was at Chick-fil-A and shared a screenshot of the savings by using their mobile app. The criticism was fast and furious.  Dorsey quickly issued an apology and said “You’re right. Completely forgot about their background”. So what's Chick-fil-A's backgro...

June 20, 2018 by Staff
If you're a college student and planning to attend the University of Kentucky this year, be ready to dig a little deeper into your pocket to pay the bill. Tuition is increasing by 2.5 percent bringing annual tuition to $12,000 a year. This doesn't include room and board either. Tuition at UK has increased over 100 percent since 2005. The runaway increases are making college unafforda...
Trump Brokers Deal
June 19, 2018 by Staff
President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un met in a historic summit last week where Kim signed a pledge committing to “complete denuclearization”. Trump said “We are prepared to start a new history and … to write a new chapter between our nations”. The meeting seemed improbable just a few months ago when we seemed on the brink of war. It's a signific...
The Poor People's Campaign
June 18, 2018 by Staff
The Poor People's Campaign was back in Frankfort last week. This time their protest was over Capitol police's refusal to allow them to protest inside the Capitol building without a permit. This was because the last time they were there they broke the law. They blocked the roadway behind the Capitol and left chalk messages on the grounds of the Governor's Mansion. About 100 protes...
Father's Day
June 15, 2018 by Staff
This Sunday is Father's Day. It's a time we celebrate dads and what they mean to us.  But if an Australian academic got her way, she'd rename it ‘Special Person’s Day.' Last year, Australian activist Dr. Red Ruby Scarlet launched a campaign for the name change. Scarlett believes that calling it Special Person's Day instead of Father's Day will help ki...
Miss America Scraps Swimsuit Competition
June 14, 2018 by Staff
The Miss America pageant is saying goodbye to one of its most iconic features— its swimsuit competition. The pageant has been around since 1921 but the new remake will focus less on outward physical beauty and more on the inner qualities of contestants.   But the move also tells us much about our cultural moment—the #MeToo era where women are fighting against objectific...
