Idols of Our Destruction
People, regardless of demographic, are into idols. We have cults of personality, standards by which we judge all comers, issues (not principles) on which we will not compromise, and the ideal of the nation itself. Not all are idols, but all can be idols. In political seasons, we make idols of our candidates — they are flawless, pure, and indestructible. That is until they are | Read More »
Obama Fetishism – The Hollow Evil of Tactical Adoration
I’ll bet the people who voted for Obama never realized how utterly cool they had become. They too get to have something in common with Tom Cruise! Like Tom Cruise they’ve been brainwashed, duped out of their money and will ultimately be betrayed by a nut-job cult. No, voting for Barack Obama doesn’t quite automatically enroll you in the Church of Scientology, but when Time Magazine describes the 2nd Term of any US President as The Second Coming, I tend to think we’ve crossed a dangerous border between admiration and idolatry. Here’s how Newsweek Magazine serves up a dose of blasphemy in honor of our Dominus et Deus, Barack I.

Hail To The Chief (And I Do Mean HAIL)
There was a time, not that long ago, when the president of the United States would, on occasion, lead the nation in a public prayer to—God forbid—well, God Almighty. Am I referring to Ronald Reagan? George Herbert Walker Bush? The evangelical W? No, I’m referring to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. I know it sounds surreal, a progressive Democrat humbly beseeching the Lord’s favor and blessing.

Beelzebubba Bears False Witness Against The Bright and Shining Won.
Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
HT: (M. Jagger/K. Richards)
Its official, Ladies and Germs: I’ve gone and done it! Never in my sordid and mediocre life have I fallen any lower. I have blogged the Obama Healthcare plan and I’ve born false witness. Yeah, that’s the ticket! I’ve born false witness. Being that I’m white, Southern, Conservative and strongly opposed to this piece of legislation, I guess that brands me as Beelzebubba.

Idolatry of the Bible – Whence Comes Your Salvation?
RedStaters, this is a letter I wrote this afternoon to a couple of friends of mine who had a question about an idolatry I identified: Idolatry of the Bible. We were discussing starting a Bible study locally and I wanted to make clear that my intention would be to focus any study of the Bible on its relationship to Jesus. I ended up with a | Read More »
King Of Fraudi Obamania
Considering the fast and awful demise and decay into socialism of the late, great United States, sometimes you just freeze up from the overwhelming choices on what to write. A quick glance at late breaking news on the web is usually enough to get me going but today The Drudge Report had a very odd juxtaposition of pictures which gave me real pause. The first | Read More »
