A History of Sinners

Lately, barely a day goes by that doesn’t have a news story about the removal or destruction of a Civil War historical monument or the unearthing of the graves of Confederate soldiers. The destruction extends to historical figures such as Christopher Columbus as well. Who knows what historical monuments will be the next to fall into disfavor? There seems to be a feeling among those so engaged that the monuments themselves have the power to … Continue reading

Civility is not Dead Yet

I’m in love with this picture. On the left but only in terms of the photo is Robert George, professor at Princeton University. On the right (and that’s the only way you will hear this phrase attached to him) is Cornel West is a professor at Harvard. The two men could not be more opposite in terms of politics. George is a Catholic Conservative who argued against same sex marriage and for Hobby Lobby’s right … Continue reading

Schadenfreude Ain’t a Town in Germany

There are a whole lot of people right now that are very happy. They are happy because the tide of the culture war seems to have shifted. The President nominated a sane and fair man for the Supreme court. The department of Education won’t declare war on homeschooling. The good guys are in power and the bad guys are all a bunch of crybabies who throw fits when they don’t get their way and start … Continue reading

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 New American Fascism

I don’t know if Bill Whittle is a Christian or not, but he is a clear thinker and able communicator. In this short video (about 7 minutes), he demonstrates how Progressives today are simply following the roadmap and tactics of fascists in pre-WW2 Germany, Mao Tse-tung’s China, and Joseph Stalin’s Russia. Many Progressives, perhaps especially the young who have been highly propagandized (programmed?) at their Universities, are determined to silence free speech and suppress the … Continue reading

Moral Clarity and the Good Wife

The characters on CBS’s ”The Good Wife are often, to be kind, morally challenged. The characters are lawyers, so the fact that they are portrayed as liars who will do or say anything to win their case, may reflect what CBS thinks of lawyers in general, but of course that does not make it morally right. Likewise, in their personal lives, they live completely according to their own whims, sexual and otherwise, with no regard … Continue reading
