The Struggle

These days, it can be a real challenge to live above the darkness that seems to be descending upon the whole world. Right is wrong in our world, and bad is good. Christians are being hated and attacked for our beliefs. Of course, hatred of Christians has been the norm in many places for centuries, but it is a rather new thing to American Christians. Maybe Christians were teased, perhaps made fun of … Continue reading

Joe Bidens’ and Nancy Pelosi’s Church Is Firmly Against Same-Sex Marriage

[Trigger warning: statements that might qualify in some minds as offensive hate-speech will be quoted in this post. Heck, I might even throw in a few of my own!] You know Joe. He’s the VP whose favorability ratings go up every time he puts on Ray-Bans. And you know Nancy: the 76-year-old former (first female) Speaker of the House to whose face the years, and allegedly plastic surgeons, have been kind. Okay, then. You certainly … Continue reading

Middle America Speaks

Whose Moral Compass?

Speaking at a women’s conference in 2015, Hillary Clinton asserted that “…deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed…” The fact that she would dare to challenge American’s cherished religious freedom was both profound and shocking to many. Religious views have to be changed? What? What right does the Federal Government or any politician have to dictate moral views and religious teachings? More recently, she made clear that human rights are … Continue reading

The Art of Manipulation

Why do you believe what you believe? Why do you behave the way you behave? Peer pressure has a dramatic impact on social conformity. Human beings are quite susceptible to “group behavior,” and have an almost overwhelming desire to imitate the group they are a part of without even questioning why. As I watched the above video this week, I was reminded through this demonstration of the great power of conformity. A young woman … Continue reading
