Jun 15, 2021 by

by Megan Basham, Daily Wire: There’s growing evidence that Nickelodeon’s hard push to promote the LGBTQ agenda to children is having a negative impact on the network’s ratings. In the last two weeks, both Nickelodeon and its preschool-targeted network, Nick Jr., have released videos championing “trans,” “queer,” and “pansexual” inclusion.

Holy Innocents: why are we putting 12-year-olds in solitary confinement for 23½ hours a day?

Dec 28, 2020 by

by Martin Sewell, Archbishop Cranmer: Herod then with fear was filled: “A prince,” he said, “in Jewry!” And all the little boys he killed At Bethl’hem in his fury.
