The Crucifixion of Ted Cruz & the New Republican Political Correctness

What would most likely get me the most accolades from my conservative friends is to write a blog piece criticizing this week’s Democratic National Convention. After all, we are routinely told by pseudo-conservatives that we all need to rally behind the Republican Nominee, unify the party, and defeat Hillary Clinton in November. She is the personification of all evil, as the new Dinesh D’Souza movie Hillary’s America appropriately and accurately argues. However, the Democrats and their predictably outrageous behavior this week is not the real story here. The Democrats kicked conservatism (and authentic Christianity for that matter) out of their party a long time ago. Criticizing the Democratic Party is too easy of a target. Finding a conservative Democrat today, such as the late Robert Casey or Zel Miller, is like trying to find an animal on the endangered species list. However, the real story here, for anybody who actually desires to see the evidence, is how the Republican Party, at least at the national level, is now also going very clearly in the direction of the Democratic Party in terms of purging and ostracizing conservatism from its ranks. In order to validate the statement, one need look no further than how the Republican Party treated Ted Cruz at last week’s Republican National Convention. When all the facts are considered, the Republican Party establishment last week engaged in nothing less than a true smear job against Ted Cruz.

My Vote for Trump: Earned Rather than Automatic (Part 2 of 2)

In last week’s post, I explained why Donald Trump is virtually no different than Hillary Clinton on virtually every issue. The Republican Party has, this time around, finally reached the bottom of the barrel and is now on the precipice of nominating someone that is virtually indistinguishable from the Democratic front runner.

My Vote for Trump: Earned Rather than Automatic (Part 1 of 2)

If you were (or are) a Ted Cruz supporter, by now you have no doubt been given “the lecture.” It is the same lecture we conservatives consistently receive every four years around this time. The lecture, usually delivered by a sanctimonious and self-appointed fellow “conservative” Republican goes something like this: “Gee, I am really sorry […]

The Bible and Voting

Can you slow down the progress of evil? I believe we can do that, simply by being the salt and light that God called us to be, and being good stewards over the many things He’s given us to be stewards over. One of the things that the Christian evangelical church has not been a good steward over is the ballot box. The statistics on this are really depressing.

The Republican Party now has the first opportunity it has had since Ronald Reagan, of nominating a true conservative as its Presidential candidate.

America Under A Strong Delusion

I had originally intended to write a series of posts explaining why Republican voters should select Ted Cruz in the upcoming primaries and reject Donald Trump. My working title for the series was going to be “Why We Must Choose Cruz and Dump Trump.” However, after a conversation with my wife the other evening, I […]

The Call to Discernment: Seeing Through Bible Spouting Politicians

Now, before you tell me why you like or […]

The Syrian Refugee Crisis and the Biblical Morality of Border Enforcement (Part 4)

Our Highly Charged Political Environment Americans are talking about immigration! The recent terrorist attack in Paris is largely believed to have been instigated by at least some unvetted Syrian War refugees that had crossed the national border.1 Similarly, “Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that […]

Why Believe in Christ’s Virgin Birth?

Now that we are well into the Christmas season, I would like to take a momentary break from the cultural and political wars that are currently consuming our nation to instead reflect upon the ultimate political ruler who made His way into our world a little over two millennia ago. I call Him the ultimate […]
