    Insinuations Candidate Slate Not Sufficiently Religious

    Those that express a Christian Reconstructionist or Dominionist perspective are in an uproar that it is imperative that Christians only vote for other Christians. Some holding to this perspective even contend that only confirmed Christians should be allowed to run for public office and if you vote for someone that isn’t, even if none are running, your soul could very well be in danger of | Read More »

    Lessons In Apologetics #8: Atheism

    If the Christian has no assurance that God will triumph from the way the world appears to be going, one would be better off hedging one’s bets by siding with the Devil or sitting the whole thing out all together. There are those that attempt to do just that. Atheism is the worldview that believes that God does not exist. Those embracing this perspective tend | Read More »

    Headline Potpourri #22: Oslo Shooter, Tea Party Hobbits & Federal Pecker Patrol

    An associate watching a home repair show informed of an episode where an owner could not get the permit to remodel unless he promised not to remove poison ivy on the property since it is classified as a “non-invasive species”. If the Oslo tragedy will be invoked to justify how guns and those questioning immigration are a threat to social order, can’t it also be | Read More »

    Shining The Light On Laser Pointer Penalties

    The Federal Aviation Administration has announced plans to impose fines as high as $11,000 upon those caught shining laser pointers into airplane cockpits. Exposure to the beam emitted by such a device can result in temporary blindness, thus theoretically resulting in a major air catastrophe if a flight crew were unexpectedly incapacitated. In a sense, such a regulation is all good and called for. However, | Read More »

    Leftists Plot Materialistic Afterlife

    Futurist Ray Kurzweil, Former Vice President Al Gore, and Bill Maher are scheduled to take part in an all-star panel discussion titled “Transcendent Man” broadcast to select theaters across America. The forum will in part discuss the merging of man and machine for the purposes of indefinitely extending the human lifespan. No doubt listening to Al Gore drone on and on will definitely make it | Read More »

    The Halperin Hullabaloo

    An MSNBC analyst called Obama a BLEEP. As spineless as the President is, one shouldn’t be so sure he should be categorized as anything so distinctively male. In the sex-dominated culture of the leftist media, wouldn’t calling Obama a BLEEP actually be the highest possible compliment? Calling Obama a male appendage is no worse than calling anyone else that. The President is owed no more | Read More »

    Headline Potpourri #21: NYT Phrenologists, Mr. Turtle Shackled, & Rampaging Huffington

    A New York Times correspondent insists that Americans living in the middle of the country have sloping foreheads. Weren’t the Nazis also obsessed with equating cranial shape with intelligence? The Washington Post labeled Glenn Beck as a “creature” in regards to his pending rally in Israel. I thought bastions of tolerance such as the Post use to warm that such linguistic dehumanization was the first | Read More »

    Lessons In Apologetics #7: Panentheism

    The next worldview examined by Geisler in “Christian Apologetics” is Panentheism. Whereas Deism postulated a God detached from His creation for the sake of transcendence and Pantheism claims that God and the world are coterminous for the sake of immanence, Panentheism attempts to conceptualize a God that is distinct from yet part of the world. To the Panentheist, God is to the world what mind | Read More »

    Food Fascism Lays Groundwork For Additional Control

    Wonder what the food fascists advocating dietary asceticism scarfed down as children. As anyone that has sat through an evangelistic missionary testimonial knows, those griping the loudest about your errant ways are usually the ones that could make a sailor blush before they came to religion. A Chicago school’s policy of controlling what students eat is an example of the threat posed to human liberty | Read More »

    What Does Christian Education Only Really Mean?

    When someone makes a statement like “The only education we should be interested in is Christian education”, it might earn brownie points with certain fanatics. However, it really needs to be clarified before the wider scope of the Church can endorse it. For example, does the person making the statement include the entire breadth of human knowledge derived from reflection upon the creation and applications | Read More »
