Pope Stumps for Environment, Using Poor as the Excuse

I tried to like this pope when he was selected. I think most of the world wanted to love or at least respect him. But his American tour has shown beyond any doubt that instead of a man of God, he is a man of the Left. And while he uses the poor continually as a prop in his speeches, a la “do this because the poor are suffering,” he is pushing the same tired leftist rhetoric about economic equality, social justice and environmental welfare that you can get from your run-of-the-mill Marxist college Read more […]

Democrats Show Schizophrenia on ‘Muslim Question’

So let me get this straight. Last week, thinking that somebody could be Muslim was such an insult that Donald Trump was called upon by liberals to apologize for a statement made by a questioner in the audience of one of his campaign appearances about President Obama. This week, Muslims are so innocuous and unquestionably all-American that Dr. Ben Carson is being called upon to apologize for saying he would not support a Muslim for president because Shariah law is incompatible with the Constitution. Have 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 […]

Can Federal Judges Run Public Schools?

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 […]

Being Part of a Religious Organization Improves your Mental Health?

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 […]

No ISIS link? Try Islam!

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 […]

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

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 […]

Michelle Obama’s Disney World of Native American Stereotypes

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 […]

Having Their Cake and Eating the First Amendment, Too

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 […]

ACLU Switches Sides on Religious Freedom because “Gay Marriage”

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 […]

Atheist Gaia Believer Advises Pope on Climate

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 […]

President Barack Obama Attacked Speech as if It Is Violence

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 […]
