Can Federal Judges Run Public Schools?

gavel scales law books Judicial tyranny, specifically in our American court system, has usurped legislative jurisdiction, and I am so bold as to add Divine jurisdiction, in our Constitutional Republic. We saw its egregious head again this past weekend after a Mississippi school district canceled Brandon High School’s marching band playing of the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” during halftime at Friday night’s football season opener. The reason? It was decided that singing a hymn was too similar Read more [...] Continue reading →

Being Part of a Religious Organization Improves your Mental Health?

environment religion A study shows that a religious organization can make a noticeable difference in your life that even secularists see as positive. As a Christian, I am not completely on board with this study, reported by the Oregonian. I don’t believe that joining a mosque, a synagogue, and a Christian church can convey the same benefits. I would like to see the data broken down by religion and by theological commitment (i.e. theologically liberal “Chrisitans” versus Christians who affirm the basic tenets Read more [...] Continue reading →

No ISIS link? Try Islam!

tea party terrorists The headlines are saying that officials are finding no ISIS link in the case of the murders committed by Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez. Really? I realize that lots of Muslims don’t commit acts of violence. Claiming a substantial link between Islam and terrorism or violence does not, in any way, imply that all Muslims are guilty. But it is still blind and dangerous to refuse to actually deal with Islam as an increased risk. Statistics are not lying. It is especially hypocritical when there is Read more [...] Continue reading →

Obama Gushes as He Celebrates Muslim Holiday; Calls 4 Murders by Muslim Immigrant 'Heartbreaking Circumstance'

MohammedAbdulazeez A 24-year-old Muslim immigrant murdered four Marines on Thursday, then was killed himself, in an attack on a Chattanooga, Tennessee, recruitment center and another military facility. While that was happening, President Obama and the White House staff were sending out warm holiday wishes to all the Muslims across the world celebrating the end of Ramadan. The holiday wishes were glowing and extensive (almost as if Obama were a Muslim himself). The White House sent a tweet that read, "From my Read more [...] Continue reading →

Michelle Obama’s Disney World of Native American Stereotypes

Drones_02 Michelle Obama unloaded all her Native American stereotypes in a speech that must have been inspired by the Disney cartoon, Pocahontas. Apparently, as long as they are aimed at flattery, Native American stereotypes are just fine. CNS News reports, “ First Lady Michelle Obama said on Thursday at a tribal youth gathering at the White House that the United States is “finally” embracing the wisdom of Native Americans on conservation and climate change, and claimed that America’s founders 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 →

ACLU Switches Sides on Religious Freedom because “Gay Marriage”

rainbow flag Religious freedom is no longer of value to the ACLU because they have a political war to wage against Christians. I saw this story over the weekend, when it first broke, but didn’t have time to write about it. I was gratified yesterday to see the Libertarian publication Reason put this headline on it: “The ACLU Now Opposes Religious Freedom Because Christians Need It.” And they added this tagline: “The Sometimes Civil Liberties Union.” I was relieved because Reason has an unhealthy Read more [...] Continue reading →

Atheist Gaia Believer Advises Pope on Climate

globalWarming Like I said, the pope's been listening to some bad advice. His recent encyclical preaching fear of global warming and promoting distribution of wealth and decreased use of energy as the "cure" is just a tragedy for the world. This is not just some guy shouting like Chicken Little from the rooftops; this is the pope saying the sky is falling. People -- hundreds of millions of people -- are going to trust he knows what he's talking about and follow him down the road of environmental terror in Read more [...] Continue reading →

President Barack Obama Attacked Speech as if It Is Violence

liberal-tolerance-tolerance-politics-1314580225 In a speech that claimed to be about “tolerance” Obama attacked speech that “targets” people. The President is certainly entitled to express his opinion on what kind of messages are true or kind of helpful. But the way he handled differing views lead me to conclude that Barack Obama attacked speech as it is protected in the First Amendment. I conclude this from the way The Hill reported on his speech. Here are the opening lines of the article: President Obama stressed religious tolerance Read more [...] Continue reading →

Politicians and Voters Both Live in Make-Believe World

Pope on Subway Pope Francis has become a propagandist for the make-believe world of the EU and the US ruling regime. Here is a rousing commentary on the foolishness of both Pope Francis and the Eurocrats: “The Pope joins the EU in a sad world of make-believe.” What has a Papal Encyclical calling on the world to end its use of fossil fuels and to pray to God for the success of the global “climate summit” in December got in common with the Greek euro crisis, the ominous rift between the West and Russia, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Why Transgender Claims are Cowardly

bruce jenner wheaties detail The purpose of transgender claims is to deny and hide from reality. That is never brave. John Steigerwald asks at the Daily Caller, “Is What Bruce Jenner Did Courageous.” I think a better question would be, “Is there any purpose to ESPN or national sports in general other than to serve as regime propaganda?” Steigerwald doesn’t think Jenner was courageous compared to other athletes and I agree. But perhaps some will claim that what Jenner has done took more courage than competing Read more [...] Continue reading →

School Girl Learns She Lives under Atheist Regime

censored If you are conditioned to not talk about God in public, even in institutions you are forced to attend, you live under an atheist regime. Parents can, with reasonable freedom, pull their kids out of public school and either use private school or home school, if they can afford the double hit of continuing to be taxed for the school while having to pay for an alternative education. But the fact remains that government taxation laws and truancy laws coerce parents into sending their children to a Read more [...] Continue reading →
