The Court Next Term: Three More Potential Blockbusters- Part 2
Making their way to the US Supreme Court are three cases that have the potential to become blockbuster cases. It is difficult to see the Court denying them. They involve Guantanamo detainees, the potential fate of Obamacare, and gay marriage. Recently, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc (but with only seven justices) ruled that the convictions of three Guantanamo detainees were invalid. | Read More »

The PCUSA has weakened America with its terrible decisions
In one single meeting, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has managed to withdraw itself from the concentric circles of Biblical authority, cultural impact, effectiveness in spreading the Gospel, and furtherance of God’s enjoinder to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” It’s really quite an accomplishment, in the negative sense, and it adds to the widening split in the American church.
The Bible says “where there is no vision, the people perish” (Prov 29:18). The PCUSA has made America a little more blind with their terrible decisions.

How the Media and the Courts Collude on Same-Sex Marriage
According to the mainstream media, same-sex “marriage” is on the rise in America. A survey published earlier this year by the Public Religion Research Institute found a majority of Americans support the concept, and other polls show similar results.

Orrin Hatch Speaks for the French Republicans
I’m sure Senator Orrin Hatch would have had the courage to make the following statement in 2012 during his contentious primary challenge: Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch says it’s obvious that gay marriage will become legal across the country sooner or later. Hatch said people who can’t see what’s happening aren’t living in the real world.

The Intolerant Agents of Tolerance
I have for many years now had a loathing for people who preach “tolerance” as they seem to do so as a means of advancing their own brand of intolerance. Earlier today, the CEO of Mozilla was essentially forced to resign because he contributed in support of California’s PROP 8. The contributor list was illegally provided to the “Human Rights Campaign” by someone at the | Read More »
Openly Gay Speaker of Rhode Island House Resigns After FBI Raid

Should the GOP or our side in general de-emphasize social issues?
A question first. What the hell is a social issue exactly? As best I can make it out, something having to do with culture and society of some sorts. Issues we most think of are marriage and abortion. To my subject I recently read a column from PJ Media co-founder Roger L. Simon on his take of social issues. In it he made the point | Read More »

Gay Marriage and the Generational Divide
Currently, twenty states allow gay marriage. This represents 123 million people, or 39.2% of the United States population.

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.
