    Difficulty

    Does God really call us to an easy life? Does the God who can do anything with a simple word from His mouth not preserve us to happiness? Why is there such difficulty in our lives even when we surrender to God?

    Obama Bids Farewell to the “Loyal Opposition”

    Obama Bids Farewell to the "Loyal Opposition"

    Since the end of the American Civil War, America has been admired around the world for its ability to remain more-or-less unified in its diversity.  But lately I’ve noticed signs of that unity breaking, in what I would call the end of the “loyal opposition.” In parliamentary governments, there’s a ruling party or coalition which gets to form the government, appoint ministers, and generally run | Read More »

    ISIS, the Confederate Flag, and Charleston: Soon and Very Soon

    ISIS, the Confederate Flag, and Charleston: Soon and Very Soon

    If seeing the new and diabolically repulsive ways the Islamic State commits murder with movie-studio quality production values doesn’t erode your sense of humanity as a basically “good” species, then you either don’t know what “good” is, or you’re hopelessly callow. I feel as if we’re living in the age of Tomás de Torquemada, where there is no Christopher Columbus to discover new worlds to | Read More »

    UN Travesty Paints Israel as Child-Abusers but Israeli Children Suffered Too

    UN Travesty Paints Israel as Child-Abusers but Israeli Children Suffered Too

    The United Nations Human Rights Council has once again leveled violations of international law against Israel, this time for its incursion into Gaza during “Operation Protective Edge” in July 2014. The report paints Israel as child-abusers for terrorizing Palestinian children. They have the story right but, they’ve got the offenders reversed. Since its inception in 2006, the UNHRC has obsessed over Israel, criticizing it 27 times–far | Read More »

    Charleston #hatewontwin How I Sold My Soul for 30 Pieces of Silver

    Image source: Getty Images Today I feel like I sold my soul to the devil for 30 pieces of silver. This morning, I wrote a simple piece for my part-time writing job at BPR, which shook me to the core. “Hate Won’t Win” Very few things have ever touched me this deeply writing about it.

    Charleston’s Dead Were Victims of Victimhood

    Charleston's Dead Were Victims of Victimhood

    Image source: CBS News I have been accused of blaming the victim in my post on Thursday arguing that if Rev. Clementa Pinckney supported legislation to legalize firearms carry at churches in South Carolina his life may have been saved from Dylann Roof’s bullets. This is not mere speculation. I don’t blame the victims of Wednesday night’s massacre. They did nothing to deserve | Read More »

    The Senseless Death in a Charleston Church Could Have Been Prevented

    The Senseless Death in a Charleston Church Could Have Been Prevented

    Every time an American community suffers a tragedy involving a firearm, the anti-gun crowd unveils itself in full tribal dress. Wednesday night, a 21-year-old sandy blonde-haired white man with blue jeans and Timberland boots walked into a historically black church in Charleston, S.C. and killed 9 people.  That’s a horrible, murderous act, made worse by the fact that the man is still at large.

    Obamacare in Crisis- the GOP's Plan to Save Health Care - Part 2

    Obamacare is in peril, and many think that’s a good thing. Last week, I had a conversation with Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA) 81%, the co-chair of the Republican Study Committee’s Heath Care Task Force, who helped lead the effort to draft a Republican answer to our failing government attempts to regulate health care for Americans. This is part 2 of a 2-part | Read More »

    Obamacare in Crisis: the GOP's Plan to Save Health Care - Part 1

    I had a conversation with Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA) 81% last Friday about the new Republican proposed health care legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare. The legislation is so sweeping that there were really too many topics to cover in one interview, but I believe we hit the important parts. Obamacare is potentially in trouble, with the Supreme Court set to announce | Read More »

    The Associated Press won the Astroglide prize for stroke headline of the year when they went with this headline for Hillary Clinton’s “official” campaign kickoff.
