Bad News from Evangelical Christianity

statism A recent poll conducted among 1500 adults confirms what we have long suspected: even Evangelical Christians support statism. The polling group—Public Religion Research Institute—determined that social issues, like abortion, are proving to be less important to Evangelical voters when compared with economic issues like unemployment. Apparently the economy trumps infanticide even among those who have been historically pro-life. This shouldn’t come as too great of a surprise to any readers of Read more [...] Continue reading →

National Atheist Party Convention Canceled Due to Lack of Funding

Broke Atheists The National Atheist Party was poised for its big break into the public consciousness. The Primordial Punch was brewed. The Darwinian Pigs-in-a-Blanket were all cooked. The Religion-Free Party Favors were all snuggled into their agnostically-sealed swag bags. The party was about to become a political force through their secular summit. And then the whole thing got canceled because of a lack of funding. Too bad. I don’t know if that faith repellant they ordered is returnable. Comments from the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Do Conservative Films Predict GOP Victory in November?

Conservative Movies_cropped Films have always been viewed as barometers of the mood of a nation. This was especially true during times of war. Compare films about the Second World War with films made about the Vietnam War. The contrasts are striking — from Mrs. Miniver (1942) to The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) to The Deer Hunter (1978) and Coming Home (1978). Does this year’s crop of successful films tell us anything about what to expect in November? Dr. Ted Baehr of Movieguide® offers some interesting statistics about Read more [...] Continue reading →

Liberals Spend Other People’s Money and Call it ‘Caring’

Larceny_Drawing From 1986 to 1990, ALF aired on NBC. The title character is a friendly but opinionated extraterrestrial nicknamed ALF (an acronym for Alien Life Form), who crash lands in the garage of the suburban middle-class Tanner family. At one time I thought the voice for ALF sounded a lot like Rush Limbaugh. Some of the things ALF said reminded me of a number of Limbaughisms. In an early scene from the 1986 episode “I’m Your Puppet,” ALF had ordered a ventriloquist dummy, but used Willie Tanner’s Read more [...] Continue reading →

‘Agenda 21’ and Why is the GOP Now Opposed to It?

agenda21_cover_cropped One of the new additions to the Republican Party platform is opposition to Agenda 21. In its section on leadership in international organizations, the platform now reads, “We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty, and we oppose any form of U.N. Global Tax.” I’m glad they added this language to the platform, but I wonder how many people who voted in favor of this addition know what Agenda 21 is. Agenda 21 is a plan put forth by the United Nations that seeks Read more [...] Continue reading →

Obama Movie Killing it Despite Negative Press

2016a Dinesh D’Souza’s new film, 2016: Obama’s America, has far surpassed industry “insider” predictions (read: hopes) that the movie would tank at the box office. Aside from being the top grossing movie last weekend, D’Souza has announced that he is expanding the number of theaters showing it, from 1091 to 1600 screens. Apparently there is more interest out there in a political documentary than even the “experts” believe. The film purports to show the “real” Obama, along the same Read more [...] Continue reading →

Christians Believed in Natural Selection Before Darwin was a Single-Cell Life Form

Charles Darwin Haeckl Embryo This whole article is a response to Bill Nye’s meddling, and the fact that, as a student of the philosophy of science with my degree in the field, I get really annoyed with how much anti-Christian “science” bullying goes on all the time. I especially can’t stand preclusive and arbitrary definitions about what is and isn’t science. So. Here goes. Before Darwin was a single-cell life form (you know… a zygote), Christians believed in natural selection. Let me tell you a little story you’ve Read more [...] Continue reading →

War-Hating Liberals Seem to Love War

obama-libya-war A strong statement to make, I know, but let's look at it: The U.S. had about 38,000 troops in Iraq and 36,000 in Afghanistan at the end of George W. Bush's second term. Liberals hated him for it. Why, he was a war criminal, don't you know, and he was a warmonger, and he was a Nazi and a child-killer! Not a day went by that the media wouldn't report how many U.S. troops were killed that day. Two years later, under Barack Obama, there were an additional 10,000 troops in Iraq (48,000 total) and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Fired Atlanta School Teacher Said Her Students were “Dumb as Hell”

Dumb as Hell Teacher Fifth grade teacher Shayla Smith was one of many who were implicated in the Atlanta cheating scandal that was uncovered last year. Earlier this week, the fourth grade teacher who worked across the hall from Smith testified before a tribunal that she overheard Smith saying that she had to give her students the answers because they were “dumb as hell.” They probably were. That’s the nature of government education. It makes kids dumb. The back story into why so many Atlanta teachers and principals Read more [...] Continue reading →

I’m Tired of Paying for People Who Live Below Sea Level

Flooding Another Hurricane has swept over the lowlands of Louisiana . . . again. The levees are being tested  . . . again. More than $14 billion was spent on repairing them after the devastating effects of Katrina in 2005. After the floods that destroyed thousands of homes, people moved back to the below sea level area. Government insurance has made it easier for people to take risks with other people’s money. For example, standard homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover losses due to floods. Read more [...] Continue reading →

GOP Convention Goes to Bat for Akin

gop Yesterday, the GOP Convention voted in favor of a party platform that supported banning abortion. This came on the heels of a CNN poll released late last week that showed that the vast majority of Americans favored either very limited legality or complete illegality of abortion. For once, the GOP seems to be making a statement and sticking to it. What is particularly interesting about this decision is that the GOP has essentially taken Todd Akin’s position and not Mitt Romney’s. However ineloquently Read more [...] Continue reading →

Atheism the Most Annoying Religion of All

08292012Creation I'm getting a little tired of these Atheists who are trying to cram their religion down America's throat. Just in recent weeks, we've had the group American Atheists posting anti-Christian and anti-Mormon billboards, Richard Dawkins telling Playboy magazine that Jesus is "barking mad," and now Bill Nye the science guy telling parents that not believing in evolution is holding back the world. Talk about a bunch of drama queens. For people who try to couch their criticisms of other religions, Read more [...] Continue reading →
