I presume not. His word says: "there is no one righteous, not even one" - Romans 3:10. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23.

Willie is the real deal. He's speaking tonight (8/23) at a fund-raiser in Houston on behalf of the Arms of Hope children's home in Medina, TX.

There is no Equal Protection aguement to be made here. Homosexuals have always had exactly the same right to marry as heterosexuals. The law simply requires that both parties be of legal age, not already married, of mind sound enough to consent to being married and be of opposite sex. Homosexuals that meet those requirements are, as they have always been, as free to marry as heterosexuals.

Extend your logic. "If people choose to be a murderer, they have that right. It's a free country."

Heritage Foundation vs. Paul Krugman

How incredibly naive. The government takes a dollar from your pocket, filters it through the red-tape machine and a government employee returns to your business to "give" you back 57 cents. It's charitable to call that "non-productive". We're potentially going to have a recovery (whether robust or not remains to be seen) because of the sequester, not in spite of it. Sequester the Affordable Care Act and just about guarentee a robust recovery.

What Happened to Just Quitting?

According to Galen: "The CIA is spying on people because that's what we pay them to do." We don't pay them to spy on American citizens.
I'm not so naive as to believe that some in big government would like to have the ability to shut down the internet, but there's not way it can happen. Nearly all businesses would come to a grinding halt and the entire economy would crash. Although I'm sure the Democrats believe they could manage a centralized economy from Washington DC - see GM, Citi, AIG, Fannie, Obamacare, etc. there's no way they could operate the entire economy - especially without the internet. Having said that, let's not give them the chance to get their sticky mitts on any other part of the private economy.

Churches: Time to Fight!

Just one small correction. You have confused the United Church of Christ with Churches of Christ. The United Church of Christ, which was the denomination that President Obama belonged to in Chicago, may support gay marriage, but the Churches of Christ, which are independent congregations and have no national orgainzation or single 'denominational voice' do not.

Financial Planning 101: Required Course

Mostly good suggestions. Here's some alternate advice: use your credit cards for ONLY small purchases - and pay them off every month. For major purchases - if you can't pay cash for it (or still use the credit card and still pay it off every month), you don't buy it now.

Wolfe Cries Fox

On the surface this appears to be a victory for academic freedom, but seriously, if you were a student in this professor's class, would you write a paper and cite Fox News as a source? I'm guessing, that notwithstanding the university's censure of the professor, you've just automatically lowered your grade at least 1 letter. And lots of luck trying to prove that it was the citation to Fox that caused the reduced grade.
