Every once in a while, the Biden administration likes to pretend that it's listening to reason. Don't buy it. That's the message from conservatives, who are trying to keep parents from falling for the White House's line that it's backing away from critical race theory in the classroom. That's the impression Education Secretary Miguel Cardona was going for when he said that the department made an "error" promoting a radical group's CRT theories. Some people cheered, thinking the White House had finally seen the light. But if it sounds too good to be true, experts warn, that's because it is.

The nation's eyes are on critical race theory, but just as critical is what's happening with sex ed. While parents everywhere rise up over the flood of woke curriculum, they're also getting a good look behind the curtain at what their children are hearing about sex. And it's just as shocking -- if not worse. It's so graphic, one Minnesota state representative told a reporter, that her colleagues didn't even want to look at the examples on the House floor. "We couldn't show this on the 10 [o'clock] news," she said, but "we want our fourth-grade children to be looking at it?"

Hemphill Award Brashier 2021 print

Recognizing the life work of a mentor to pastors, North Greenville University (NGU) recently presented the 2021 Paula and Ken Hemphill Award for Denominational Service to the late Dr. T. Walter Brashier, Sr. The honor was bestowed posthumously to the noted real estate developer who died March 24, 2021, at the age of 86, after battling several health issues in recent years.

“Many do not realize that Dr. Brashier was also an evangelist,” said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. “He preached over 1,000 revivals across the Carolinas, and he was a mentor to pastors all over the place.”

The Hemphill Award was presented on June 15 in Nashville, TN, at NGU’s Alumni and Friends Dinner during the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting. More than 90 people were in attendance at the dinner in the Aquarium Restaurant.
