Satanic Group Wants Display in Florida Capitol

The anti-Christians are at it again. A group calling itself the Satanic Temple wants to put up a “holidays” display in the Florida State Capitol, after a similar display was rejected last year. Helping to push the effort is Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which sent a threatening legal letter to the Florida Department of Management Services over its refusal to allow the Satanists to set up in the Capitol. The letter contained the usual claptrap about the “wall of separation” Read more […]

Freedom Without Responsibility

To whom much is given, of him much is expected. Or as that famous philosopher Spider-Man put it, with great power comes great responsibility. Both statements are just ways of saying that actions have consequences, which means we are morally responsible for what we do. In our modern world, it seems that we often don’t look any farther than the tips of our own noses to see what our own actions can bring about, what we would be responsible for. This thought occurred to me while reading a Read more […]

Obama Bans Contract Chaplains From Performing Services

Remember when one Park Service Employee stated that they received orders to make things as difficult for people as possible?  Now the Obama administration is using the government shutdown to deny our military service men and women their constitutional rights of freedom of religion. According to the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Service, USA, priests that are under contract or general schedule with the military have been banned from performing Mass, weddings, baptisms or Read more […]

Washington Post Writer Wrong about Religion, America, and the Constitution

Charles C. Hayne has written “Dispelling the myth of a ‘Christian nation’” for the Washington Post. The article begins: “Culture warriors, pseudo historians and opportunistic politicians have spent the last several decades peddling the myth that America was founded as a ‘Christian nation.’ “The propaganda appears to be working. “A majority of the American people (51 percent) believes that the U.S. Constitution establishes a Christian nation, according to the State of the First Read more […]

Blacks are Willing Democrat Mistresses

Brenda Lenard is the most outspoken Senate candidate you have never heard of… yet. Guns and Patriots, a division of Human Events, recently interviewed Brenda about guns, racism, and the Bible. On gun control, Lenard said: “It historically begins with blacks who were forbidden from owning guns. It was very easy for slave owners to keep and control blacks with gun control. The same thing is happening today. It is a slow process of gun confiscation.” One of her best answers in the entire interview Read more […]

Student’s First Amendment Rights Violated by School Says U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

The Pocono Mountain School District believes elementary school students should have their First Amendment rights greatly limited. In December 2010, a fifth grade girl at Barrett Elementary Center in Cresco, Pennsylvania went to school carrying flyers for a Christmas party at her church.  Although other students have passed out flyers and invitations to other out-of-school events like scouting and various clubs, school officials stopped the girl from handing out her flyers because it contained Read more […]

Religion, Politics, and Dinner Parties

It is often said that polite dinner conversations should not include religion or politics. Perhaps it is because dinner hosts prefer peace to hostility, or because both topics are prone to individual monologuing. Either way it is a surefire way to raise the collective blood pressure of your dinner guests. I would suggest that in addition to maintaining peace and limiting long-winded diatribes, another reason to not talk about religion or politics at the table is because they are so closely related. Read more […]

Primitive Man Wore No Clothes?

G.K. Chesterton was a gifted writer and thinker. Although he was Roman Catholic in his religious convictions, his writings were often directed toward the tension between Christianity and non-Christianity, not the doctrinal differences between Protestants and Catholics. A journalist by trade, Chesterton had a knack for communicating with the common folk of early 20th Century England because he understood them. He was pointing out the hypocrisy of the materialistic, scientific community long before Read more […]

Romney gets Graham approval

On Thursday, October 11, Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, met with Rev. Billy Graham in his mountaintop home in Asheville, North Carolina. In so doing, Romney was able to check a crucial public relations event off his campaign agenda. For the last fifty years or more, acquiring an audience—and an endorsement—from Billy Graham has been a nearly mandatory step for any candidate hoping to court evangelicals for their votes. In an interesting twist of the intermingling of church Read more […]

Liberal Believes Government Not God Grants Rights

Near the end of his speech at the Republican National Convention, Paul Ryan told the audience that “sometimes, even presidents need reminding, that our rights come from nature and God, not from government.” I’m not sure what Ryan meant by adding “nature” to “God,” since appealing to nature to establish rights has a sinister history. For example, there was a time that blacks and women were considered to be inferior “by nature.” Aristotle believed in the reasonableness and “natural Read more […]

Atheist Gestapo Bullies Another City into Removing Crosses

It is becoming a familiar refrain: the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has utilized its vast amount of time and resources to force a community—in this case, Steubenville, Ohio—to alter its new logo due to the fact that a cross was prominently displayed as a part of it. The horror! Atheists nationwide can rest easy knowing that little old Steubenville is once again open to all citizens, not only the Christian ones. The FFRF has been on a tear, sanitizing everything they can find of Read more […]
