    In praise of worship

    God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Ephesians 3:10-11, NLT) Jon Gabriel has a post up about modern evangelical churches and in particular contemporary Christian music. In his post, | Read More »

    Pushing back the gay rights goalposts

    In my last post, I discussed the issue of marriage as a civil right versus the Constitutional right of freedom of religion. Essentially, the secular view of marriage as being between two people who love each other joining to form a single household is completely incompatible with the Judeo-Christian view of marriage, that being that a union is between a man, a woman and God. | Read More »

    Irreconcilable Differences

    With the Supreme Court taking on two different same sex marriage cases, two seemingly related yet in this case opposing American concepts are clashing: The right to free association and individual liberty, and the right to practice one’s religion. The Supreme Court will take on the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8, which bans same sex marriage in California. However, the | Read More »

    Keep cool conservatives, the media is watching

    Jonathan Krohn was confronted by several young conservatives at CPAC 2013, according to Yahoo! News. Krohn was once a young conservative celebrity, but has since renounced his previous views, taking what he calls says is a more independent stance. Several activists cornered Krohn, who was there as a journalist to cover the event. The author of the Yahoo! News article specifically mentions Katie Pavlich and | Read More »

    The Day of Good

    I’m still reeling from  the events of this day. 28 people, most of them children, are dead because a man filled himself with evil and hate and malice and decided to destroy lives. It’s horrifying. It’s despicable. It’s incomprehensible. Erick made an excellent point today: Evil is not the opposite of good; rather it is the absence of good. People who live without good in | Read More »

    Occupy gets evicted

    Protesters from the “Occupy” movement moved a family of four into an empty foreclosed home in southwest Atlanta last week. They were evicted by local authorities yesterday. From WSB: Atlanta police arrested Occupy Atlanta protesters who stood firm at a foreclosed home that group members had taken over. Channel 2’s Sophia Choi was with the group last week when Reneka Wheeler and Michelene Meusa moved | Read More »

    On bayonets and battleships

    Already, much has been made of the President’s comment about “horses and bayonets” during the foreign policy debate. The President was responding to Mitt Romney’s comment that the United States Navy is as small as it has been since our entry into the First World War. The President responded with the following (from the Washington Post): “Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets,” | Read More »

    No tax break to move jobs overseas

    I’m tired of hearing that companies get a “tax break” for moving jobs overseas. The President repeated this a couple of times during his dabate with Mitt Romney. I’ll buy dinner up to $500 for the first person to show me the section in the tax code that does this. Don’t bother, it doesn’t exist. Here’s what they’re really talking about (very simplified): It’s 1992. | Read More »

    Sean Bielat aims to turn MA-04 from blue to red

    There are several second-time Congressional candidates vying for a chance to help increase the GOP’s hold on the House. Among them Sean Bielat is attempting to make sure Joseph Kennedy III doesn’t take over MA-04, the seat being vacated by Barney Frank. Bielat’s campaign admits the fight won’t be easy. Assuming he wins Tuesday’s primary (which seems more than likely), he’ll face an inexperienced Democrat | Read More »

    Why I’m supporting Sandy Adams (R-Cand, FL-07 PRI)

    UPDATE: Sandy Adams’ campaign is getting moneybombed. Click to support her here. UPDATE: The moneybomb is over. In one day, the campaign raised over $29k. You can still support Sandy with the link at the bottom of this post. In 2010, Americans and specifically conservatives rejected the “old way” of crony politics. We sent 87 freshman congressmen to Washington and took over state houses, governorships | Read More »
