Time to crack down on the Christian Fundamentalists!

I checked the news right away this morning because I had heard about the Norway atrocity and had been following it somewhat.  Lo and behold, we are told that the gunman, Anders Breivik, is a ‘Christian fundamentalist with right-wing connections.’   I thought that was pretty interesting, because when we had our Fort Hood shooting in Texas by Nidal Hasan, it took the media several days to report the fact that he was a Muslim and the president of the United States himself came out of the woodwork to caution us all against leaping to conclusions connecting the man’s … continue reading...

Soviet Show Trials Right Here in America

I am deeply disturbed by the Obama administration’s decision to try the 9-11 terrorists in civilian courts, whether in New York City or anywhere else.

My jaw dropped when Holder and Obama began offering their justifications.  They clearly thought that they were being reassuring but they made it much worse.  For example, in response to the argument that going through the civilian courts… you know, giving the terrorists status under the Constitution of the United States… meant leaving open such possibilities that these terrorists could get parole or even declared innocent, it was replied, essentially, “Not to worry, there is … continue reading...

Auto Execs Drive not fly, Global Warming Advocates keep flying

I wasn’t really going to say anything about the whole ‘the auto execs flew on their private jets while begging for money’ thing, as absurd as the coverage was, but when I saw today that the automobile CEOs are driving to DC in their hybrids instead of flying this time I just burned inside with the lunacy of it and had to tell someone what I think.  Since there is no one around, you, my faithful readers, must endure.

This is just stupid.  I am getting tired of these media generated firestorms.  As a case in point, the same media … continue reading...

Today’s Notes: Moral Equivalency on 9-11, Qualification: Did not have an Abortion, Pro-life Blogs

Yesterday I was approved to be on the pro-life blogsite, www.prolifeblogs.com.  Welcome to anyone arriving on my site from there.  I invite you to see what I am about and my somewhat unique approach to the abortion issue.

The South Carolina chairwoman of the Democrat party said yesterday that Sarah Palin’s “primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”  This has apparently inspired a firestorm but this is an observation that was made in the conservative camp already from the reverse:  that in the liberal (feminist) mind, Sarah’s primary disqualification was that she hasn’t had an … continue reading...

The Growth of the Early Church: A Testimony Believed. Martyrs for what they saw not what they believed.

The Growth of the Early Church: A Testimony Believed.

This essay was written in response to challenges to demonstrate that the early Christians died because of their testimony, and their unwillingness to reject their testimony. In other words, they believed that they had actually seen certain events, and chose to die rather than deny what they had seen. Contrast with an event like 9-11, where we talk about 19 Muslims flying into the towers ‘because of their beliefs.’ I will contend in this essay that the early martyrs were driven on by what they witnessed with their own eyes- externally- continue reading...
