A Majority of Americans Not Comfortable with the Moral Direction of Their Country

morality Not just Republicans but half of minorities and even more women think the moral direction that the United States has traveled is wrong. I have already mentioned David French’s report at the National Review of how a majority of Americans think that what is happening to the country since the Supreme Court invented same sex “marriage” has moved us in the wrong moral direction. It is notable that even the Washington Post is admitting to this fact: “Liberals have won a series of victories Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Road to Moral Anarchy

crown The only way to pull us back from moral anarchy is to preach that Jesus is Lord. This past week our family has enjoyed berry picking. The wild raspberry harvest came in this week and they are delicious. When the sun strikes them they look like ruby jewels hanging in groups from the raspberry bushes. You can tell from the colors which are the ripest, a deep burgundy instead of candy apple red. Some of the fruit is so ripe when you simply touch it; it falls into your hand. Sometimes they are Read more [...] Continue reading →

Same-Sex Marriage and the Supreme Court? Follow Obama’s Abortion Example!

obamacare symbol The Supreme Court gave businesses relief from Obamacare's abortion mandate, but HHS is enforcing the rule anyway. Whenever you hear someone claim that the Supreme Court has ruled and that it is now Federal law, ask yourself, when they make such statements, if they ever follow their own principles. Right now, states are ignoring Federal marijuana laws. Do liberals accuse such states of treason? Do they claim they must obey the Federal government? The Supreme Court granted Hobby Lobby relief Read more [...] Continue reading →

Same Sex "Marriage" Is the Dismissing of the Old Civil Rights

gayMarriage A judge with a long civil rights record is being attacked by homosexuals for not complying with their demands. When it comes to homosexuals, pretentiousness is a constant aggressive strategy. Awhile back we were treated to media tributes to Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, pretending to be an oppressed minority as a male homosexual and claiming to have deep understanding into other minorities. What do you think happens when someone from a real minority with a long history in the civil rights movement Read more [...] Continue reading →

Democrats Want to Eliminate Words of Hate, like "Husband" and "Wife"

political correctness The new order of same-sex marriage demands we eliminate words that make spouses sex-specific. Since George Orwell wrote 1984, we have been warned that a sign of totalitarianism is the manufacture and restriction of language. If your government wants to eliminate words it is trying to dominate you. And now the Democrats are pushing to do just that. As the Washington Examiner reports, "Dems declare war on words 'husband,' 'wife'" More than two dozen Democrats have proposed legislation that would Read more [...] Continue reading →

Candace Cameron Bure Defends the First Amendment on the View

Bure v Raven Full House actress Candace Cameron Bure tells people that Americans are supposed to have religious freedom. In the clip above you will see Raven Symone introduce the topic as she is quoted by E! Online: "The Oregon law bars businesses from discriminating against sexual orientation, race, disability, age or religion," Symone argued, "and to me, it's the same exact thing that they did back in the day saying that black people couldn't do certain things because it's my 'religious belief.'" First Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hispanic Privilege: They Don’t Believe in Same-Sex Marriage

Obama_privilege In a painful self-flagellating article on white privilege, the writer shows the people he pities are more privileged than he is. I am tempted to say a lot of things about this rather silly piece at the Washington Post: “I tried to escape my privilege with low-wage work. Instead I came face to face with it.” And it has a teaser line: “The advantages of race and class are not easily shed, even in a falafel shop.” But they weren’t advantages of race at all, and advantage is not identical Read more [...] Continue reading →

Seceding From Sodom

GayWeddingCake Do we need marriage licenses from Sodom? This past weekend, we attended my nephew’s wedding in the mountains west of Wenatchee, Washington. It was a beautiful mountain setting but that outside ceremony was intensely hot. As we departed and descended the mountain, I could smell smoke. I didn’t see any fire burning, but for mile after mile I smelled the smoke. I commented to Cherelyn several times about the pervasive smell of smoke, not like one single campfire, but a different odor of Read more [...] Continue reading →

Judge Says No to Lesbian Couple Wanting to “Marry” Each Other

lesbian wedding cake A lesbian couple asked a judge to “marry” them and he refused on the basis of his Christian Faith. I suspect the government is going to do something damaging to the judge. I’m proud of him for standing on the word of God. Melanie Hunter writes at CNS News, “Toledo Judge Refuses to Marry Same-Sex Couple, Citing Christian Beliefs.” “On Monday, July 6, I declined to marry a non-traditional couple during my duties assignment. The declination was based upon my personal and Christian Read more [...] Continue reading →

Another Domino Falls after Obergefell: Church Liability Insurance

burning Christian church Getting the Supreme Court to dogmatize on same sex “marriage” may succeed in ending church liability insurance. Even without a First Amendment legal revolution in place yet, the mere threat of lawsuits might already be stripping the church of normal legal protections. David French writes at the National Review, “For Churches That Won’t Perform Same-Sex Weddings, Insurance Begins to Look Iffy.” Churches, like virtually every functioning corporation, protect against liability risks and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Having Their Cake and Eating the First Amendment, Too

Gay marriage Aaron and Melissa Klein, the Christian bakers who refused to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding in Oregon, are continuing to learn what happens when you cross the gay mafia. As the rest of the country was preparing to celebrate its independence from a tyrannical government, the Kleins were being ordered by Brad Avakian, Oregon’s Bureau of Labor & Industries Commissioner, to pay $135,000 in damages to Rachel Cryer-Bowman and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, the lesbians who didn't get their cake. As Read more [...] Continue reading →

Mitch McConnell Claims Congress Helpless before Supreme Court

mitch mcconnell Has Mitch McConnell read the Constitution? Here’s a headline from The Hill: “McConnell: Congress can't roll back gay marriage decision.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) said there's little lawmakers can do to overturn a Supreme Court ruling allowing same-sex marriages in every state, suggesting any further action will rest largely with the courts.  "I don't think so. I think the courts have pretty well spoken. We'll be taking a look at whether or not religious liberty needs Read more [...] Continue reading →
