Washington Post Admits Margaret Sanger was a Eugenicist but Pretends They Are Denying It

planned parenthood flag Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist and championed the movement; she didn’t merely use it to promote birth control. As I just posted, the Washington Post seems to be realizing false denials of Ben Carson’s accusations against Planned Parenthood are not credible. So now they are trying to admit some of the truth and still spin the issues in a Liberal direction. In addition to conceding  Carson’s claim that abortions outnumber the (next?) leading causes for death for both African Americans and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Jefferson and Jackson Exiled from Democrat Party in the Name of Inclusiveness

Democrats Praying Is the Democrat Party showing it is inclusive or that it wants to pretend that it has no questionable past? Our ancestors sinned. Duh. I don’t mean the ones who were losers and whom history has forgotten. Even our great forefathers who built us a legacy that we enjoy committed serious sins. Does that mean we should reject them and claim they contributed nothing to us? Or does that mean we should forget them and pretend they never existed? I ask because the Democrat Party has decided Read more [...] Continue reading →

A Stupid Way for Republicans to Attack a Democrat: IRS Troubles

little house on the prairie IRS troubles could possibly indicate a character flaw, but not necessarily. Attacking someone for being behind in their taxes is not going to work well. As you may have heard, Melissa Gilbert is running for the House of Representatives to represent a district in Michigan. Gilbert was the actress who in her younger days played Laura Ingalls Wilder in the TV series, “The Little House on the Prairie.” The TV series was based on a book series by the real Laura Ingalls Wilder with a lot of editorial Read more [...] Continue reading →

Will Smithsonian Listen to Black Pastors Petitioning against Margaret Sanger?

planned parenthood flag If the Confederate Flag is so racially offensive a statue in honor of Margaret Sanger should be at least as offensive. Slavery was evil. Racism was evil. Combined they were worse. But it wasn’t as horrible as mass extermination combined with racism. That is what happened during the Holocaust. Between the horror of the holocaust and the horror of antebellum American slavery sits Margaret Sanger, who wanted to weed out the “unfit” racial minorities and whose organization is now a major Read more [...] Continue reading →

Is Congress Crossing the Line into Purging History to “Fight Racism”?

confederate race reconciliation Purging history isn’t going to do anything to spread tolerance or end bigotry because such actions constitute intolerant bigotry. As I said before, it is completely appropriate for voters in a state (through their representatives or by some direct referendum depending on how the system is set up) to remove a Confederate flag from state property or to stop allowing a Confederate flag as a license plate option. The Confederate battle flag does represent racism in the minds of many citizens and Read more [...] Continue reading →

The ACLU Finally Finds a Chief Executive Who Should Obey the Law

obamaPen Perhaps the ACLU might try to show us some commitment to principle? Or is that not possible? The ACLU is mad at the Oklahoma governor. According to Tulsa World, “Gov. Mary Fallin, monument unmoved by Supreme Court's Ten Commandments ruling.” Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday said the Ten Commandments monument will stay at the Capitol despite a court ruling that said it violated the state Constitution and must be removed. Fallin said Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Read more [...] Continue reading →

Is Islam a Threat to America?

09122012Islam We recently moved to the beautiful state of North Carolina – one of the fastest growing states in the nation. My family attended one of the local churches and a guest preacher was speaking about the church’s outreach to the ever-growing populace from all over the nation, and the world. The preacher explained that North Carolina has changed from a small town feel where everyone assumed his or her neighbor attended a church in the Christian faith. Now, people of many faiths, or no faith at Read more [...] Continue reading →

A Meditation on the Fourth of July

Declaration of Independence This was written the day before the Fourth of July but it is still worth reflecting upon after the holiday weekend is over. We are nearing the 4th of July. It is a time of joy and celebration. And we hope to satiate our hunger tomorrow with good drinks, good food, and good friends. But beyond all the fireworks, parades, and the good and healthy national festivities, we will also remember that in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies Read more [...] Continue reading →

Happy Presbyterian Rebellion Day!

declaration of Independence_02 Yes, many observers have described the movement we celebrate on July 4 as a Presbyterian rebellion. Looking for someone to blame for the demise of freedom in America? Perhaps you need look no further than your local Presbyterian elder who has completely neglected the application of God's truth for the civil realm. "John Calvin was the virtual founder of America" -- influential German historian, Leopold Von Ranke (1795-1886) Don't like taking the word of an historian? Then consider the statement Read more [...] Continue reading →

A Lesbian Academic on Homosexual Orthodoxy

camille paglia Not all "gays" or Lesbians buy into the irrational homosexual orthodoxy that is popular in the media and with the Supreme Court. Back in the nineties I really appreciated Camille Paglia’s Sexual Personae and her first book of essays. But I missed her second book. While researching on homosexuality I stumbled on this web page of quotations from an essay in her book Vamps and Tramps. Even though this is from the nineties I think her observations are still quite relevant today. So I’m reproducing Read more [...] Continue reading →

Apple CEO Tim Cook is a Full Brownshirt Fascist

ultimate general gettysberg Apple has removed a Civil War computer game from their store because a Confederate battle flag is displayed in it. I thought Warner Brothers’ termination of “Dukes of Hazard” toys was insane (and it is!) but this is even worse. It showed up in my twitter feed and I assumed (or hoped) TouchArcade.com was some new satire site. If you've been watching the news recently, you'll know of the huge debate in the U.S over the role of the Confederate flag in contemporary America. Many see it as Read more [...] Continue reading →

God’s Education Plan

school bus stop One of the unanswered questions with the riots in Baltimore is who was behind the aggressive social media campaign to organize a “purge” that would start at the Mondawmin Mall at precisely 3 PM on a Monday afternoon? The spark that ignited that Monday’s pandemonium it appears started with high school students on social media, who were discussing a “purge” — a reference to a film in which laws are suspended for a specific period of time. Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby told Read more [...] Continue reading →
