    ISIS Fighters Stricken with Serious Skin Disease.  Judgment of God?

    At first I thought this story was one of those far-fetched tales in WorldNetDaily or a parody from The Onion.  But it’s real. There’s a disease called leishmaniasis which is endemic to the Levant, meaning Israel, Jordan, Syria, Iraq.  It just so happens that ISIS inhabits the same area as this serious skin disease, which is spread by sand flies. I kid you not.  If | Read More »

    Progressives: Puritans with a Different God

    Progressives: Puritans with a Different God

    Indiana has gone from becoming a standard-bearer in the battle for religious liberty, to a routed coward who unhands the ensign, careful not to trip over the pole on the way to the rear. State versions of the federal RFRA are a red herring, which in no way inform legislative or social policy, except in very specific situations (such as a city council passing a | Read More »

    Fools!  He Had His Hour

    The division of the world was accomplished in seven days. The division was planned for eternity, and the instrument was prepared for 33 years, but the act itself happened in the span of a mere week. A week ago was Palm Sunday: the remembrance of the Lord Jesus Christ’s entry into Jerusalem, as a King. Zechariah lived 586 years before Christ’s birth, and prophesied the | Read More »

    Good Friday: Sunday's Coming!

    It’s Good Friday.  Why is it good?  Because Sunday’s coming!  Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.  Behold the King of the Jews, dying for the salvation of all! Matthew 27:1-57 Jesus Handed Over to Pontius Pilate 1 When morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death. 2 And | Read More »

    Response to a Young Gay Man, and Being Made to Care

    Response to a Young Gay Man, and Being Made to Care

    To the young gay man who shared so openly and clearly on RedState:  thank you.  It’s refreshing to see someone willing to engage in real debate without invective, accusations, and straw men.  That’s a rare event these days, and it deserves recognition and encouragement. That being said, beyond encouragement, such a heartfelt diary deserves a response.  And the response must be just as clear, open, | Read More »

    The New Yorker Calls GOP ‘Opportunistic’, ‘Fear-Mongering’ Over Iran Opposition

    The New Yorker Calls GOP 'Opportunistic', 'Fear-Mongering' Over Iran Opposition

    The Obama-worshipping sycophantic media always presumes his motives are pure and conservatives are crass and evil.  And they just keep proving it over and over again. The New Yorker penned this piece titled “A Calculated Risk” which lays the blame for Iran’s nuclear ambitions on Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft.   No kidding. Ford’s talks failed, as did negotiations undertaken by the Carter Administration. In | Read More »

    Obama's Iran Deal Makes Israel Into a Ghetto

    The deadline for a political agreement with Iran regarding its nuclear program has come—and gone, and yet we’re still negotiating. “We’ve made enough progress in the last days to merit staying until Wednesday. There are several difficult issues still remaining,” spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement. An Iranian negotiator, meanwhile, said his team could stay “as long as necessary” to clear the remaining hurdles. | Read More »

    Did Harry Reid Lie About His Injuries?  Maybe.  Is It Irrelevant?

    There’s No Doubt Which Side Obama is on, And It’s Not America’s (Hint: it’s Iran)

    If there was any remaining doubt at all about who’s side Obama is on, this should eliminate it.  An Iranian journalist who previously managed Hassan Rouhani’s public relations defected to the West during the nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland.

    Sister Apple, Sister Pig:  An Abortion-Indoctrination Children's Book

    Art imitates life, then life imitates art, but “artist” Mary Walling Blackburn has written a children’s book so ghoulish as to inspire the worst dystopian nightmares our society has ever dreamed. The book is called “Sister Apple, Sister Pig,” it’s published by e-flux, and available as an e-book, for free.  The book tackles a topic not usually discussed with small children:  abortion.
