    Too Soon to Go Full Totalitarian

    The gay rights movement has tended to be a well-choreographed stage production over the last number of decades. Over time, behind the scenes, they pushed hard for gay characters in film and television. They pushed gay actors out of the closet and encouraged celebrations of diversity. A population that, according to the census, makes up less than 10 percent of the nation, gives the impression | Read More »

    A Bit Ashamed of Us All

    I have read few people over the past week more eloquently cover the end of the Civil War than my friend Streiff here at RedState. Yesterday, he was one of the few to write about the end of the Civil War, 150 years ago yesterday. I highly encourage you to read it. I think we should all be ashamed of ourselves, just a bit. 150 | Read More »

    My Friend Lucy

    You will have to humor me in this as I take up the front page of RedState for a personal post and some language that does not normally appear here at RedState. I was supposed to be in Washington last night for a party. But we had a family matter come up, then I got put in a cast for daring to walk barefoot over | Read More »

    The Rattlesnake

    Though not yet announcing a Presidential campaign, Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas is coming out pretty forcefully on dealing with national security and Islamic terrorism. He has a piece here at RedState this morning on the very issue. He’s also out with a new video on the subject — one that I think resonates. As someone who hates snakes, I’ll have nightmares from the video, | Read More »

Rand Paul93%Senate Republican Average29See Full Scorecard93% is going to announce his campaign for President of the United States.

    Big Business Targets Conservatives

    While we’ve been distracted by pizza restaurants in Indiana, you need to pay attention to what big business is doing.

    Reporters, In Particular, Should Read This

    Ross Douthat interviewed himself on religious liberty. Note that he writes at the New York Times and no reporter there bothered to interview him on these issues. They should have.

    Build Not Walls, But Communities

    The events of last week were the subject of much conversation in churches yesterday. The rapid shift in society not just away from the church, but the growing hostility to the church and often with voices claiming to be of the church, leave many Christians disoriented. Christians who believe in the doctrine of vocation — that their work is a mission field — suddenly find | Read More »

    Spare Us Your Outrage

    Rolling Stone has finally admitted its rape story about the University of Virginia was made up. They are doing precisely nothing about it. The journalistic community of America is outraged. Spare us please. The same circle of jerks outraged by Rolling Stone were perfectly fine pushing a false story that RFRA laws legalize discrimination.

    Happy Easter

    But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they | Read More »

    And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.  And sitting down they watched him there;  And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
