The Horror of Sexual Exploitation

On September 28, I attended an important event at the United Nations entitled “The Trade in Minors in the Digital Age: Waking up the World to the Dire Need to Stop Trafficking in Children, Child Sexual Exploitation and Child Pornography”.

Human Rights Failure at Fordham Law School

The United Nations General Assembly has been holding its annual session, with this year’s theme being “Focusing on People: Striving for peace and a decent life on a sustainable planet.” The notion of “focusing on people” naturally brings to mind the struggle to protect the fundamental human rights of everyone on our planet.

The recipients of DACA are frequently called “dreamers” after the Dream Act, a bill that would have established the program by statute, but whichContinue reading “Betraying the Dream”

Liberated by the Truth

I recently was asked to give a class on gender ideology. I’ve written about this┬ámany times before, but I was once again struck by how nonsensical gender theory is. It is a soup of very strange ideas — my biological sex is irrelevant to my self-determined “gender identity”, the “male/female binary” is oppressive and mustContinue reading “Liberated by the Truth”
