A Berkeley academic that no doubt fancies himself an advocate of diversity, multiculturalism, and moral relativism has proposed altering a variety of policies aimed at making the lives of those that dwell in rural areas uncomfortable. This is apparently punishment for individuals daring to exhibit the audacity to make life decisions on their own without first consulting ruling elites.
A pastor praised news of church members confessing sins to one another. So how does this work: “Just…Continue

In an episode of his podcast, Russell Moore interviewed Senator Ben Sasse regarding how perpetual adolescence hurts the church.
One might immediately snap what's so wrong with that?
Nothing if by that one is referring to 25 year olds still on their parents' health insurance as authorized under Obamacare or having never worked a day in their lives by the same…Continue

On the 1/10/21 edition of America's News Headquarters on Fox News, pundit Jessica Tarlov decreed that, if you said that the election was fraudulent, you are complicit with what transpired at the Capitol during the Electoral College vote confirmation.
The only ones guilty of the shocking vandalism are those that perpetrated such acts of violence.
Does Miss Tarlov really…Continue

A public service announcement part of the New York Tough propaganda campaign insists that one does not wear a mask because it is the LAW but because it is the law of nature.
So what if the only reason an individual wears one is to avoid confrontation with the Barney Fife’s of law enforcement and retail security?
If the issue is not about obeying the law but rather…Continue
It might be one thing for a church to remove an American flag from its sanctuary on the grounds that nowhere in Scripture are congregations commanded to put on display in the house of the Lord a symbol of their earthly political or cultural loyalty.
So if national identity is something to be downplayed in an ecclesiastical environment in order to emphasize the unity of believers in Christ, don't turn around and…Continue

Representative Marjory Greene has been removed from her committee assignments in the House of Representatives not so much for anything that she has done but rather because of what she believed.
It was claimed that the so-called conspiracy theories she is accused of professing cannot be countenanced because of the “festering malignancy” of such ideas. Nothing similar was done to punish Raphael Warnock for questionable…Continue
Utopians, especially of the…Continue

Barriers at least seven feet high and said to be unscalable (walls if you will) have been erected around what allegedly objective journalists keep reminding viewers is “our beloved Capitol and symbol of democracy”.
This step was taken following the kerfuffle that though profoundly serious still resulted in less damage to property and human life than the other civil disturbances that have gone on nearly nonstop since about Memorial Day 2020.
If such security measures are…Continue
Across America, governments are invoking the power to essentially suspend civil society when hospitals are occupied at a predetermined numerical threshold.
So why does the same sort of emergency intervention not apply in other situations where human life is at stake?
For example, if there are a certain number of auto accidents for a particular period should most forms of…Continue
Former President George W. Bush composed a powerful statement in condemnation of the Capitol Incursion.
Too bad he was not as swift and decisive in regards to the pillaging at the hands of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Of that he said it was not the time to lecture but rather to instead listen.
So why not extend the same…Continue

A meme of a woman on a stretcher being put into an ambulance is captioned “Are You Taking Me To The Hospital?” “No ma'am. You need top medical experts. We're taking you to the comments section”.
But neither should these "experts" be allowed to run roughshod over the rights of individuals.
Also, if the non-medical laymen is to refrain from remarking on medical…Continue
In “The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis, one of the hardships Narnia suffers under is that it is always winter but never Christmas. Imposed upon the realm by the White Witch, the plot point serves as a powerful symbol of the extent to which despots are willing to suppress the basic joys of existence for the purposes of advancing their own agendas at the expense of those that they conspire to rule over.…Continue

If Trump is compelled by election results to relinquish the Oval Office, the moment he steps out of the White House he should commence tweeting and podcasting in opposition to the shortcomings of the looming Biden regime.
For there will no doubt be many.
There should be none of this “a former President remains quiet for a year” hooey.…Continue
It could be argued that the United States of America holds an unique position in the world in that for the most part the nation's sociopolitical system attempts to balance the competing needs of both the group and the individual. This impressive feat is accomplished in part as a result of distinctive foundations such as a constitutional framework of government and the underlying moral assumptions shared by various interpretations of the Judeo-Christian…Continue

Apparently women that don’t cook from scratch are failures for violating Biblical admonitions regarding taking care of their families because processed foods and preservatives are not mentioned in Scripture. Utilizing such logic, does that make one a failure as a man if you cannot get his woman to comply with this objective? More importantly, aren’t you a failure if you propagate your decree by any method other than the sort of parchments upon which the…Continue
At the Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, attendees were allowed to decide for themselves whether or not they would wear a mask.
Medical establishment functionaries (many of which no one elected to office or not even employed as part of the civil service) issued numerous pronouncements decreeing that those deciding not to conceal their countenances in the proscribed manner were threatening the lives of those…Continue

There is one thing that Americans will agree on and that is that the country is in a mess. The socio-economic situation totters on the brink of collapse with deficits and debts poised to consume in wholesale the total value of the nation's wealth. Upon hearing of trial verdicts or police actions not to their liking, like clockwork certain predictable segments of the population no longer simply utilize their constitutional rights to articulate their disagreement but instead like invading…Continue

Jeroslav Pelikan is quoted as saying, “Apocalypticism ... was the mother of all Christian theology. (Kyle 32).” With technological explanations provided in the attempt to understand many of the obtuse symbols detailed in the eschatological portions of Scripture, it can be easy to assume that preoccupation with the End Times and the return of Christ are new phenomena some might describe as afflicting contemporary believers. However, this sense of anticipation has been a part of Christianity…Continue

In the column titled “White Nationalist Terrorism and the Gospel”, Southern Baptist ideologue Russell Moore condemns White nationalism as “the way of the flesh” and “as the tribal identity cult”. So when does he intend to publish a column similarly condemnatory of Black Lives Matter, La Raza, or even Antifa? Rather in numerous essays and public statements, Moore has admonished Whites as to why they must strive to comprehend the anger of minorities that results in looted businesses and…Continue
Deep within their hearts and minds, a significant number sense that the world is careening towards something that is both catastrophic yet wondrous all at the same time. Not exactly sure of what that is, many attempt to get a handle on this feeling of apprehensive expectation by conceptually referring to the stimuli and data provoking this emotional response as “the End Times”. With advances in technology just as likely to make our lives more complicated as…Continue
