Welcome to the Arena, Senator Paul
Today, in Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 80% is going to announce his campaign for President of the United States. In 2010, when I backed Senator Paul in the primary, I got an enormous amount of grief from many conservatives and Republicans who did not like Senator Paul’s father and assumed that Senator Paul would be a clone of his father. I | Read More »
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. With the blessing of Republican leaders, they have begun systematically targeting conservative members of Congress. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) 100%, Barry Loudermilk, Jody Hice, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) 100%, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) 94%, and others | Read More »
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. The same circle of jerks outraged by Rolling Stone were perfectly | Read More »
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 »
The Good Friday Show
Here it is, in its entirety.
The Good Friday Show Starts NOW
Every year I do a special show on Good Friday. Tonight’s starts now. Listen live here and consider this an open thread.
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. Now from the sixth hour there | Read More »
The Weekend That Changed the World
Approximately 1,982 years ago, a man died. In fact, many men died that day. We know for sure of three men. Two were tied to crosses and crucified. One was nailed to the cross. Had that been the end of it, it would have just been like so many other Roman crucifixions. But, unbeknownst to most anyone at the time, the first Easter weekend would | Read More »
Grant Starrett for Congress
My good friend Grant Starrett is getting into the race for Congress in Tennessee against Congressman Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) 100%, and I strongly endorse him for the seat. I first met Grant when he was in law school working for Senator Jim DeMint, and I’ve subsequently gotten to know him at various conservative conferences and also in Atlanta and Nashville. Here’s | Read More »
Attack of the “Fact Checkers”: Liberals Are Unhappy With My Tweet.
Seriously. Sometimes a tweet is just a tweet. Hi there, I’m a reporter with PunditFact. I want to let Erick know about a fact-check I’m working on about his RedState piece that starts: “Tim Cook and the left are happy to do business in countries that stone to death or otherwise jail gay people, but will not do business with Indiana.” (There was a parenthetical | Read More »
Mike Pence, Stand Strong
A remarkable thing is occurring in Indiana. Having passed a Religious Freedom Restoration Act that merely puts the “free exercise” clause on the same legal footing as the “free speech” clause, Indiana Republicans are now rushing to add protected classes of citizens who we are seeing this week do not need the state’s protection, but will use that protection to harass and bully others. Not | Read More »
Get 110% of your Membership Cost Back from Angie’s List
Since Angie’s List does not want your business, you should cancel your membership like I did. After I cancelled, I found out that Angie’s List has a membership Bill of Rights. You can get back 110% of what you paid if you are dissatisfied with your membership. Considering Angie’s List’s CEO does not want Christians’ business and has contempt for people of faith, I’d suggest | Read More »
Having Killed RFRA, Georgia Republicans Are Now Launching a Direct Assault on Churches
First Georgia Republicans cut a deal with Democrats. They would kill Georgia’s RFRA legislation in exchange for Democrats supporting roughly a billion dollar tax increase. Not content to deprive Christians of religious protection, Georgia Republicans have decided to go after churches and other non-profits directly. They’re going to do it via “definitions” in a new piece of legislation. It is extremely common in churches around | Read More »
