  • I get sick and tired of people on conservative radio and television who bitch and moan about those who hold Mitt Romney’s Mormonism against him. You know, the last time I checked, as an American I have every right to hold anything I want against a political candidate who wants […]

    I get sick and tired of people on conservative radio and television who bitch and moan about those who hold Mitt Romney’s Mormonism against him. You know, the last time I checked, as an American I have every right to hold anything I want against a political candidate who wants […]

  • Have you heard of the latest attempt to destroy Christianity? Apparently some people have decided to make a big deal over an ossuary that supposedly held the remains of Jesus and His family. Books have now come out, and James Cameron of Titanic and Terminator fame has a new documentary […]

  • In today’s world, there doesn’t seem to really be many shining examples of leadership. I don’t personally believe we’ve had a credible leader since Ronald Reagan graced the nation by sitting in the Oval Office, and in the years since the end of his last term there have been very […]

  • I was listening to Laura Ingraham’s show this afternoon…which, if you’re a listener, I can explain it as a weird oddity of the local talk station: one hour comes on at 9 and the other at 2 after Limbaugh. The show featured an exchange between Wolf Blitzer and Vice President […]

    Committing to What’s Right

  • I don’t understand why people hate it when others take stands for something they feel is important. While browsing the internet with the TV on, I overheard a story about how conservative Judaism will now allow openly gay rabbis. While it really isn’t much to me, as I’m not a […]

    What’s wrong with taking a stand? Everything, apparently.

  • The following is a collation of an essay read by Paul Harvey some years back. There was a version read over the air that differed and added to written copies I’ve read before, so I took it, combined the two in a manner that seemed best to me, and submitted […]

    “If I Were the Devil”

  • From time to time, I’m asked what I truly believe with regards to faith and religion. I’ve made it clear by a history of posts on the subject of faith, but these aren’t always easy to find for folks with whom I’ve had little history. My church recently ratified a […]

    Ever wonder what it is I believe?

  • I’ve griped to friends and family at length over the past few months about these international dorks who abuse their diplomatic leeway, specifically in the realms of free speech allowed, in order to tear down and say things I would evict them from the country for uttering on American soil. […]

  • Okay, Democratic controlled Congress is forthcoming in January. The sun will rise every day next year just like it did this year. I may pay more in taxes, but that’s nothing new. We’ll all survive. Sure, it’s not the most optimal of circumstances, but they haven’t been optimal since….ever. So, […]

  • There’s a lot being said about this lately.  Democrats say we should put down the Republican leadership because they knew of it.  Republicans say they didn’t know and Dems are using it for political gain.  Now a Catholic priest is said to have swam naked with him as a child, […]
