What Happened to Justices of Roe v. Wade When they Met their Maker?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hy_0CeIyq5s This Friday will mark the anniversary of one of the darkest days in the history of our land. It will mark the 43 anniversary of the horrific opinion in which the Court claimed it was legal for a woman to hire a contract killer to murder the baby residing in her womb. Justices Burger, Douglas, and Stewart filed concurring opinions along side Blackmun who wrote the majority opinion and was joined by Marshall, Brennan and Powell. It was Murder they wrote Read more […]

New Gun Restrictions for a New Year

It wouldn’t be a new year without a new set of laws aimed at making liberals feel less angsty about those scary guns the rest of America has. As per usual, every single one of the new gun laws was passed under the flag of “never again,” based on some media-hyped shooting, and as per usual, not a single one of the new laws would have stopped the incident that was its rallying cry. The big gun grab will be in California, where police will now be allowed to confiscate anybody’s guns for 21 days Read more […]

The Dilemma of Joseph and Christmas

One of the many blessings of teaching the Biblical view of law and government across this great land is the wonderful people who become fast friends. One couple in northern California who’ve become friends wrote this week thanking me for the work I had the privilege of beginning in their community. They conclude, “Wishing you all the best in these turbulent times. Merry Christmas.” Indeed, these are turbulent and troubling times. That got me to thinking about the very first Christmas.

Animal Control

What the Bible tells us about animal control illustrates God’s view of human responsibility and justice. We saw last week in Micah 6:8 that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God. One particularly thorny aspect of justice is the question of unintended consequences. When someone intentionally commits a crime whether that is premeditated or not we can see how justice is served, but what about when someone acts without an intention Read more […]

Your Work Matters to God: The Ten Commandments Sets the Standard

Many years ago a man who lived on Long Island was able one day to satisfy a lifelong ambition by purchasing for himself a very fine barometer. When the instrument arrived at his home, he was extremely disappointed to find that the indicating needle appeared to be stuck, pointing to the sector marked “HURRICANE.”  After shaking the barometer very vigorously several times, its new owner sat down and wrote a scorching letter to the store from which he had purchased the instrument. The following morning Read more […]

Sharia Court Shut Down in Texas

The City of Irving, Texas, was the setting for a recent Sharia Islamic Court, and the mayor took a stand against it.  Mayor Beth Van Duyne publicly stated that she backs the new Texas law which prohibits any kind of foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.   The Conservative Tribune reported: There were a multitude of illegal activities taking place behind the attempted formation of the Sharia court, including the fact that all four of the “voluntary” Sharia lawyers were Read more […]

Law Enforcement Overstepping Bounds

Government servants are stealing from innocent people, again. The fact that it is legal to seize people’s belongings before they are convicted, or, even before a case has been built against them or charges brought, is egregious  indeed.  In Tennessee, lawmakers want to reduce police agencies’ ability to seize cash and vehicles without actual criminal convictions. Those in law enforcement are up in arms about this move to protect the rights of the people. From The Times Free Press A 2010 Read more […]

Evangelicals: A House Divided on Capital Punishment

Officially, the National Association of Evangelicals, an organization that represents Evangelical Christians of many different denominations, always stood in support of capital punishment.  Christianity Today reports: Since the early 1970s, the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) has stood in favor of the death penalty. It reasoned that capital punishment was an ethical stance for Christians because it works as a deterrent and lends appropriate gravitas to heinous crimes. “If no crime Read more […]

Researchers Demagnetize God Right Out of Your Head

A group of researchers have made the headline-grabbing claim that they can reduce belief in God with the application of magnetic coils to a patient’s skull. Researchers at the University of York in York, England, say they used a technique used to treat depression, called transcranial magnetic stimulation, to alter Christians’ beliefs in God and, oddly, opinions about immigration. The media being the way they are — mostly anti-Christian — it’s the claim about God beliefs that are getting Read more […]

Show Us the Law or Free Kim Davis

This past Saturday, I had the great privilege of addressing a rally in support of Kim Davis. Kim Davis is the elected clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, and she has been jailed by a federal judge for disobeying his order to her to issue marriage licenses to people of the same sex. She refuses to do so. Other speakers at the rally addressed the moral argument against her confinement.  That argument rests on the idea that our rights come from God and that no government can grant a right Read more […]

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

“This is a vision of love,” claims a statement from the group Black Lives Matter. Meanwhile, group members have rioted, committed assault, torched and destroyed. “Love won! Love won!” shouted pro-homosexual demonstrators outside a Kentucky courthouse where Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was thrown in jail for practicing her Christian beliefs and not issuing homosexual marriage certificates. The Left will tell you these two movements are about love because they are fighting for equality. But the Read more […]

Another Cost of Immigration: Court Interpreters

It is toxic that we are only permitted to discuss immigration as a human rights issue and not acknowledge the cost of immigration. I am not against immigration. But the present environment in which immigration is discussed is completely toxic. The Democrat amnesty objective is obviously aimed at harvesting new Democrat voters. The way the laws have been systematically broken rather than legally changed is an outrage. The Republican Establishment has not given us any better discussion about Read more […]
