I suppose its a bit more of an anecdote than a commentary. Twenty-two years ago and it seems like last week.
Its by design. As I, and others, have repeatedly warned, the establishment of so-called gay marriage as a newfangled federal right, and the free exercise of religion as guaranteed by the First Amendment simply cannot coexist in harmony.
Ever notice how the secular left conveniently omits the fact that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a devout Christian minister?
The push back has begun. Christian business owners, lawyers, parents, judges, county clerks, organizations, universities, hospitals, adoption agencies and other individuals and groups have been given an ultimatum by five unelected, unaccountable liberals in Washington, D.C.: You must now obey us and disobey God. You must pretend, with us, that sin-based same-sex marriage is an actual thing.
Well, that was predictable. On Friday, with its majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, five judicial imperialists perched high atop the U.S. Supreme Court bench called the Supreme Being a liar.
This is it. Im coming out. I want the world to know. Im a black, lesbian platypus trapped in a white, straight guys body.
I love this quote by illustrious NASA scientist Dr. Robert Jastrow (1925-2008): For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream.
First, some basic housekeeping the obvious. Bruce Jenner remains a man in every cell of his body and every corner of his soul.
I appreciate it when leftists get off script, dispatch with the propagandist talking points and say whats really on their minds.
I said it was coming. Many of us did.
While actions speak louder than words, words often predict future actions. Secular progressives words and actions rarely align.
Graduation season is upon us. Be it middle school, high school, college or graduate school, now is a time of joy and celebration for millions. From coast to coast, graduates, faculty, family and friends are gathering, or soon will, to celebrate academic achievement and years of scholastic seed sowing. Its a time of reflection and hopeful anticipation as those who have earned the distinction alumni prepare to reap hard works harvest and traverse the winding path ahead.
Come now, Holy Spirit, and speak through Your humble servant. Let this prayer be Your prayer truth in love, salt and light.
Amid the cross-country race to election 2016, the secular lefts utter disdain for both our Creator Christ and His faithful followers is fast approaching critical mass.
The very notion of gay marriage is an artificial construct. Its the aberrant byproduct of the sexual revolution, which, itself, was largely instigated by bug doctor turned sexologist, Alfred Kinsey.
Liberals overplay their hand. Its part of the deficiency. Whether real or perceived, if the pagan left can rationalize a sense of progress on some freedom-killing cause du jour, then itll push, push, push until it falls flat on its face.
Recently, while announcing his 2016 presidential bid in front of 13,000 onlookers at central Virginias Liberty University, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz garnered tremendous applause, saying, I believe God isnt done with America yet.
Admittedly, there is no easy answer. A major roadblock in unifying behind a singular candidate, observes CNN, is the deep, personal relationships that social conservative activists and leaders have developed with individual candidates over the years. As one activist noted, You bleed with them in battle. There are alliances, friendships people who worked hard for you. You dont want to burn them.
Espresso makes you hyper. When youre hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it.
Of course, Christians, as does the Christ to whom we belong, desire nothing of the sort. We want nothing short of eternal life for all humanity, including homosexuals. We are not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance (see 2 Peter 3:9). Now, Muslims, on the other hand
