Freedom of Speech? Not When You Speak of Islam

The very first amendment to our Constitution was to protect our rights as citizens to be free to speak our minds and to have our say about various issues.  We have the right of free speech but if we are careless in our speech the courts have said that the freedom of speech may cost […]

Muslim President?

Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson caused quite a stir the other day when he suggested that a Muslim could not be president because he could not live by the Constitution in his governance of our country.  Immediately he was criticized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) who faked being insulted by Dr. Carson’s […]

TARGET Goes Gender Neutral

“Well, I never heard it before”, said the Mock Turtle, “but it sounds uncommon nonsense.” (Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll)  Target is taking down the signs that identify boys and girls clothing so no one will be offended if a girl wants to buy boys clothes.  They are going ‘gender neutral’.  According to Webster’s […]

Cry for Cecil, Ignore Dismembering of Babies

Can you believe the public outcry over the death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.  The dentist who shot the beloved lion has had to close his practice, go into hiding because of death threats and could face extradition to Zimbabwe.  Even Jimmy Kimmel was crying over the death of Cecil. Yet, crickets, when the […]

Do Black Lives Really Matter?

Will Destroying a Flag Solve Our Problems?

It’s Late, But Not Too Late

I have been concerned for the last several years with the direction of our country as well as the direction of the church.  By all outward appearances we are ‘going to hell in a hand basket.’  Suddenly  we find ourselves in a society that calls evil good, and good evil. That includes many of our […]

A Picture Worth a $1,000.00 fine?

We have now been contacted by our third ministry concerning their contact by a company indicating a copyright violation by the ministry using a picture on their website without a license.  A fine of $1,000.00 was requested and a demand to delete the picture from the website. Many churches and ministries add pictures to their […]

Let Us Reason Together

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech he stated “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream…’  That speech was […]

False ‘Rocket Man’ Theology

A few days ago Elton John gave an interview with Sky News in which he spoke about Jesus’s position on same-sex marriage.  In his view, “If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that he was, saying this (same-sex marriage) could not happen.  He was all about love and […]
