The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District wants to add “gender expression” to its list of classifications that are protected from “harassment.” On March 3, the school board will be presented with initial information on whether it should prohibit harassment in the form of “any verbal, nonverbal, written, or physical conduct, or electronic communication” related to “gender expression,” which refers to a person’s “behavior, mannerisms, interests, and appearance that are associated with gender in a...

In 1978, the Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA), otherwise known as the Hatch Amendment was passed after parents were shocked and outraged to learn that trusted teachers were using the classroom for therapy instead of education. Teachers pried into the private lives of students and their family by asking sensitive information about political, religious and personal beliefs. Little did parents realize that teachers would overstep their bounds once again by asking questions of a sexual nature...

As Alaskans join Americans across the country in setting aside a day to honor the work and vision of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is important to remember that he was a pastor formed and motivated by deep Judeo-Christian beliefs. King’s first principles were not found in the material, social or political realms. His vision came from a fundamental view that God has created mankind, and that we are most at peace when we...

Almost 40 years ago, when beginning involvement with the prolife movement, I recalled what a national leader said: “The only way to overturn a Supreme Court decision is with a constitutional amendment.” He was a physician, not an historian nor constitutional scholar. It says reams about the ignorance of basic citizenship regarding the Constitution, and our history, that such statements could pass with unquestioned acceptance then – as it did with me – and are...

For Alaskans who wish to do more home improvements in 2020 without funneling money to a massive corporation that supports abortion and same-sex “marriage,” there are options. According to 2ndVote, a national watchdog group that monitors the philanthropy of major corporations, Home Depot scores poorly when it comes issues like abortion, same-sex “marriage” and religious liberty. Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that performs poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and...

In part I of this series on Roe v Wade we explored the false notion that the supreme court – on either the federal or state level – has the constitutional power to negate or cancel statutory laws that are passed by the legislature and signed into law by the executive branch. While the courts might have an opinion, the executive possesses the power of enforcement, and is not obliged, according to his own constitutional discretion,...

Benjamin Franklin, wrote that “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government: When this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved.” Last night, I had the pleasure of watching “No Safe Spaces,” a wonderfully enlightening and chilling documentary by comedian and podcast king Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager. It’s a movie that opens your eyes about how our voices are being shut. And it...

The University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) was named the top LGBTQ-friendly college for Alaska by the Campus Pride Index. In partnership with Campus Pride, BestColleges.com released its rankings earlier this year to help students of various sexual and gender identities find institutions that back the LGBTQ political and cultural agendas. According to a press release, the ranking is based on several criteria, including housing and residential life resources, “like roommate matching so students can find...

While we enjoy our holiday season, celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, let’s remember the disaster that hit us in Fairbanks last year. It really brings to mind the need to pray for our state and communities, and the need to be involved in electing conservative candidates at the local level. At last year’s first City Council meeting in December, with little fanfare, the Fairbanks City Council brought forth a Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity...

This is the first in a series looking at how Alaska’s more prominent university campuses deal with controversial social issues on campus. The University of Alaska, Southeast (UAS) in Juneau is part of the University of Alaska system which includes campuses across the state. ABORTION & SEX ADVICE The Juneau campus strongly supports abortion services for all students. The school clinic provides students with access to contraceptives, including abortifacients which end the life of an...
