Why I love the Commercialization of Christmas

Every year about this time there are complaints about the commercialization of Christmas.  I think even my hero, C.S. Lewis had some cynical things to say about it.  No doubt, it is ironic and even scandalous that the ‘reason for the season’ is often only a pretext for people and businesses to make a load …

The Coming Nightmare of the Trump Presidency

This is one of the least pleasant pieces I have ever sat down to write.  I am forcing myself to do it.   I feel the warning must be issued, although my sense is that those who would heed it, need it least. Many people are encouraged by the election of Donald J. Trump.  To them, …

“After the Ball” Reflections: Actually, homosexuality IS a Choice?!?!?!?

I’ve been spending a fair bit of time acquiring and analyzing books that advocate for manipulating people.  Not, as you might be thinking, so I can manipulate people, but because I find manipulation to be disgusting, vile behavior.  It is prima facie evidence of that the manipulator is a bad actor.  Bad actors should be …

Putting Hysterics Into Proportion: The Alleged Threat of the Rise of White Racism

I have many other things I’d rather be writing about, but the ‘left-wing’ hysterics about so called white nationalists on the rise thanks to Trump is something that I feel is necessary to talk about.  Necessary, because if these hysterics are not shown definitively to be discredited, there is no doubt in my mind that …

Review: Richard Weikart’s “The Death of Humanity and the Case for Life”

In a recent post, I argued that one of the tell-tale signs of whether or not a viewpoint does not correspond with reality is whether or not it results in death; one’s own death, or the death of another, or many others.  Supposedly, humans these days are smarter than any humans that have ever existed.  …

The National Popular Vote is Meaningless

I’m amazed–but not really–at the continued fixation on the disparity between the popular vote and the electoral count.  Not really, because I have spent the better part of the last decade studying the ‘left.’  The Democrats thrive on mob movements, so losing the election while winning the mob is perceived by them (accurately, perhaps) as …

Recap: Defending the Faith by Defending the Family

A couple of months ago, I began organizing my thoughts for some presentations I gave at a pastor’s conference.  The overall theme was ‘the need for apologetics in our culture’ which I took as an opportunity to offer an expanded understanding of the idea of ‘apologetics.’  This was borne from my observations and my research …

Discredited for Collusion: A Blacklist of Members of the Media Complicit with the Democrat Party

There is an awful lot of bad press out there for Donald Trump.  An awful lot.  Some of it he deserved, but a lot of it was contrived and even outright lies.  His statements about Mexicans and the assertion that he mocked disabled people were grossly distorted, for example.  Such things can be added to …

Reflections on a Trump Presidency and its Significance

Without radically scaling back the reach of the Federal government and facilitating the adoption of small government principles right down to the local level, the Trump victory is a mere bump on the road towards full-blown statism. But a ‘bump’ is better than nothing.

Why this Christian is Voting for Donald Trump

A Trump presidency would only delay the rise of the fascist state, but that’s better than nothing.

An Apology for Apologetics: Coming to Grips With Hard Truths (Part 6)

The first five parts of this series are important for following the reasoning of this.  Read them, here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. At the end of part five, I quoted from the prophet Malachi, chapter 2: You cover the Lord‘s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering …

An Apology for Apologetics: ‘Good Soil’ for ‘Good News.’

I am four parts into a series organizing my thoughts in advance of an event I’ll be speaking at.  The other parts are important.  You should read them.  (1, 2, 3, 4). In the context of the rise of ‘religious nones,’ in the last part I highlighted the fact that the Church cannot compete against …
