You Will Be Made to Care
Vanderbilt University has decided student groups on campus cannot determine their own leadership. Consequently, a muslim can run the Christian group, a global warming skeptic can run the Earth First group, a Republican can run the College Democrats, etc. You get the idea. The rule came in part because, as you will not be surprised to learn, a Christian fraternity “had expelled several students for | Read More »
You will be “Made to Care” – about what?
The right of enjoying and defending our lives and liberties is found throughout our founding documents, as you can see “lives” born and unborn is placed first, and it is placed first and foremost for a reason. Its when these founding values become subjective, perverted and distorted we will have stepped on the slippery slope downward, we have already allowed our selves to step on | Read More »
Not Yet Made to Care
Nine months ago, I wrote a diary that received a lot more attention than I anticipated. Erick’s response to my post has since become something of a catch-phrase here on RedState, and has since made its way into the broader conservative blogosphere. “You will be made to care.” Thanks to a photographer named Elaine Huguenin, a cake maker named Jack Phillips, and a duck-call manufacturer named Phil Robertson (do I really need a link to | Read More »
Ultimately There Will Be No Option for Silence or the Sidelines. You Will Be Made To Care.
I have told you people again and again. You will be made to care. Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then it seeks to silence good. Phil Robertson, patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan, honestly answered questions during an GQ interview. He spoke openly of his Christian faith. Because he offended a secular left at war with orthodox Christianity, he must be punished. | Read More »
The Political Corollary to You Will Be Made to Care
Many of you are convinced you can sit on the sidelines or quietly take the side of the Republican Establishment in the upcoming primary season. Many of you are convinced it does not matter. Many of you are convinced that the GOP will do the right thing once they have control. Many of you will be made to care by a Republican Party intent on | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care
A Christian baker in Colorado refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding. A judge is now ordering him to do so or face financial penalties. Surely there are plenty of bakers who would bake a cake for David Mullins and Charlie Craig, the gay men who wanted the cake. But they went to Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, CO. When Phillips | Read More »
You Will be Made to Care About Governmental Social Engineering
Yesterday, the Democrat supermajority in the Senate passed the preposterous transgendered lawsuit bill with 64 votes. The most consequential outcome of ENDA (were it to pass the House) is that sexual illnesses and subjective (“perceived”) gender preferences would now be required by the federal government to be treated as mainstream in schools and the workforce. Moreover, they would be considered a protected class, forcing private | Read More »
You will be made to care
At some point, those of you on the right who have completely ceded the field to the Democrats on so-called social issues will need to confront an uncomfortable reality. There is no floor to the licentiousness of the statist social-engineering agenda. We will not have a liberty-driven prosperous country built upon the ruins of the civil society. We can only go so far with government-sanctioned | Read More »
Yes, You Will Be Made to Care
You will be made to care about gay marriage. You may think it does not affect you or will not affect you or you can support it and leave well enough alone, but you cannot. The secular left and aggressive gay rights activists will not allow you to. You must either fully embrace it or be shunned. You may think it does not affect your | Read More »
You Will Be Made to Care
Much has been said about this post, including a good bit of heat toward me for putting on the front.There is much that could be said. I disagree with a lot of the theology.In particular, I disagree with this: Is Homosexuality a Sin? I. Do. Not. Care. Luke 10 tells the story of a legal expert who queried Jesus about what was required to inherit | Read More »
Boundless Grace Within the Bounds of Penitent Souls
These are two great quotes, thoughts from which might make it into my Sunday School lesson this Sunday. Walker Percy wrote this one a few decades ago. The Church can indeed change, has changed, might now or in the future change in its encounter with a particular culture, my own included. But I need not warn you, I am sure, of the dangers of overacculturation. | Read More »
Even casual viewers and fans of the zombie genre will be made to care. Apparently, it is a big deal that Daryl Dixon may or may not be gay. For those who do not know, The Walking Dead is a show about zombies, among other things, and is filmed here in Georgia. Why we need to know someone’s sexual preference while they are trying to | Read More »
Will church leaders in U.S. seize this opportunity?
The foundations of every institution that make America a stable society are being shaken—hard. Nothing is being spared. The family in America is under attack like never before. The church in America has lost its courage and boldness on certain issues in the light of a new Barna Group study that reveals most pastors avoid the “controversial issues.” And Americans have a growing and deep | Read More »
Obama to non-profits: celebrate LGBT or else
If you are involved with a religious charity that accepts any kind of federal money, get ready. Overt persecution is about to become the norm.
As Erick has said many times, you will be made to care.Read More »
