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.

By focusing on sex, gender and feminism, and as you will soon see, this young progressive means to say that she spends her days rationalizing each and every conceivable form of sexual deviancy, as well as trying to otherwise deconstruct that which she and her fellow feminist travelers view as an artificially constructed culture of heteronormativity the sinister brainchild of the evil-man-led global patriarchy (for those interested, we meet Tuesdays at noon at the Golden Corral on Wards Road). Along with a growing numberof secular leftists, Kutners latest sexual taboo for de-stigmatization is incest.
Offend a Christian and he is obliged to pray for your salvation. Offend a Muslim and he is obliged to murder you. So observed conservative journalist Robert Stacy McCain in the wake of this weeks horrific Charlie Hebdo massacre in France.
