Full disclosure: As goes election 2016, Im decidedly not in the Donald Trump camp. To compare Trump to Ronald Reagan, as some have done, is like comparing a Hostess Ding Dong to a seven course meal at Osteria Francescana. Though each may please the palate, the latter offers both substance and sustenance, while the former, a quick endorphin fix and empty calories.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts.
For the first time in American history a woman has been imprisoned by the government for merely exercising her Christian faith.
To vocal opponents of judicial activism, this comes as little surprise. The U.S. Supreme Court has suffered a major credibility blow in the wake of its politically motivated 5-4 Obergefell v. Hodges gay marriage opinion.
Here is a fact: Adultery is sin.
Its never fun to be proven right when warning of some impending wrong. Many in the pro-family movement have long stressed that the cultural Marxist lefts belligerent push for the judicial fiction that is gay marriage was never about gaining equal access to this biologically exclusive male-female institution, as they profess, but, rather, is, and has always been, about control.
I had an interesting heart-to-heart with my dad the other day. We were discussing my son, his grandson, who was spending time with my folks in Colorado over the summer.
Nazi monster Dr. Josef Mengele is known to have ordered the murder of over 400,000 Jews at Auschwitz from 1943 to 1945.
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.
