Four Dumb Reasons for Not Voting for Ted Cruz (Part 1)

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

The Syrian Refugee Crisis and the Biblical Morality of Border Enforcement (Part 3)

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 […]

The New Intolerance (Part 7)

Freedom on the Altar: American Religious Freedom in the Wake of the Supreme Court’s Recent Same-Sex Ruling   Judges Inventing Rights In writing this week’s post, I feel a little like Job, when he said, “For what I fear comes upon me, and what I dread befalls me” (Job 3:25).

The New Intolerance (Part 6)

A May 13th Houston Chronicle editorial accused and characterized those who oppose Mayor Annise Parker’s recent attempt to expand civil rights protection for “gays, homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals” as mere haters and “hateful.” In fact the subtitle of the article reads, “There is little value in spreading hatred about the transgender community.”1 Now that […]

The BIG Lie: “Separation of Church and State” (Part 14)

In the last thirteen posts, we have presented a series on the “separation between church and state” supposedly found in the First Amendment.
