The Top International Stories Overlooked in 2013
While the United States and the rest of the world were worrying about the use of chemical weapons in Syria and Iranian nuclear aspirations in 2013- the two international stories that dominated the news along with a leftover from 2012 (Benghazi)- five stories went largely overlooked by the media. Four of these were recently highlighted on Realclearpolitics. I added an overlooked fifth. 1. The story: | Read More »
An Eleventh Hour Blow to ObamaCare’s Abortion-Pill Mandate
At the eleventh hour, literally, the Supreme Court dealt a significant blow to ObamaCare’s HHS Mandate.
The mandate was set to force a group of Catholic nuns to pay for abortion pills. If that’s not an unbelievably obtrusive abuse of executive power and a trampling of religious liberty, I don’t know what is.

Islam, NASA, Christian Prince Charles and climate change
Soon after insisting that his 2009 Stimulus bill be quickly passed by Congress lest unemployment ever rise above 8%, President Barack Hussein Obama’s first foreign policy trip was an Apology Tour to the Middle East. The message: the Islamic world had nothing to fear from this son of a Muslim, non-Bush-cowboy. President Obama went on abandon surge-fought-for-gains in Iraq, leaving no American footprint; promise date-certain | Read More »
Lying Waitstaff and The Media Who Love Them
When I was in middle school, a very smart teacher (who I’m sure now was probably conservative) gave us a small project. We were to bring in a newspaper page and look for the words that might indicate opinion. Sprinkled throughout stories written as “news reports” were hints at the author’s opinion on the matter; and if you didn’t read carefully, a reporter could lead | Read More »

Pastor Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen serving an 8-year sentence in Iran for his Christian faith, faces a new kind of lions’ den, Rajai Shahr, where lions appear in the form of prisoners who routinely murder other prisoners.

President Obama, Christian Persecution in Egypt is No Laughing Matter
The rampant persecution of Christians in Egypt by radical Islamists is devastatingly undeniable – nuns paraded through the streets, churches burned to the ground, Christians being murdered.
Yet, the White House has thus far been nearly silent. Then yesterday the White House was directly asked about this disturbing situation: “With people being killed, Christians in particular being targeted, churches being destroyed, what’s the President’s red line in Egypt?”
The White House’s official response was “Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today.”

Egypt’s Christians Brutally Attacked – Do We Care?
The news coming out of Egypt is overwhelming. Radical Islamists are targeting Christians.
There are reports that Muslim Brotherhood supporters marked the doors of Christian homes to know which ones to attack during riots. Christian nuns have been paraded through the streets like prisoners of war – a public degradation of humanity. Churches have been indiscriminately burned to the ground – one had to cancel its first service in over 1,600 years. The number of churches attacked in the recent radical Islamic rampage has risen to at least 60 and by some estimates over 100. Christians are being targeted and killed as the world watches in near silence.
Do we care?

Pain Increases for Imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini
The Iranian family of American Pastor Saeed Abedini was once again able to visit him in Evin prison in Iran. Despite previous threats from Iranian authorities that they would cut off Pastor Saeed’s visitation, he was able to spend some brief time with his family in Iran earlier today.
Unfortunately, we have learned that Pastor Saeed’s internal injuries are causing him increased pain. Pastor Saeed has been suffering from internal bleeding – the results of intense beatings he has sustained in prison for his faith.

Iran Attempting to Root Out Christianity Pastor by Pastor
We see it in the case of American Pastor Saeed Abedini, but he is not the only Christian in chains for his faith. In the Islamic Republic of Iran alone there are countless Christians imprisoned, facing charges or convictions for one crime, apostasy (essentially becoming a Christian in a radical Islamic nation). Suspicious disappearances, beatings, torture, death threats, and murder have become astonishingly commonplace for these Christians.

Terrorism in America – Fighting an Enemy Whose Name Cannot Be Spoken
While the U.S. was still reeling from the devastation caused by the Boston bombing and before it was known who was responsible for the act, there were those on the left who assumed, even hoped, that it was an act of right-wing terrorism. When their hopes were dashed, they took a detour from grieving for the victims and began instead to focus on, as they | Read More »

Government, Culture and Freedom
At the very dawn of our republic, John Adams uttered a prophetic phrase that rings through time to the present age. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Often we who love small government forget that culture, that is, “We the People” are the one’s who shape our government first, not | Read More »

Banning Gays From The Prom
While anti-discrimination laws prevent gay students from being excluded from school activities, a group of students, parents and a teacher are hoping to do just that. According to Paige Preusse of NBC 2, At Sullivan High School, in Sullivan, Indiana, the group will be creating a separate prom that will ban gay students from attending. As if the idea of excluding certain students from the | Read More »
Smarter Than Jesus – What an Unwise Conservative Might Believe About Our Leadership
While I must admit I am a Christian and Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior, I am just overwhelmingly proud to be a Republican and conservative in America these days. Republican and conservative leadership including all the pundits, journalists, bloggers, consultants and us rank-and-file conservatives have all demonstrated that collectively we must be smarter than Jesus. That’s an audacious thing for someone like me | Read More »

Where is the Christian outrage?
Dr. Mary L. King, Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard University, claims to have discovered a papyrus fragment which provides “evidence” that Jesus was married. Dr. King has a long history of claiming that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. This theory flies in the face of orthodox Christianity and is unsupported by Scriptural authority. She has previously cited claims from the gnostic “Gospel of | Read More »
