On Being a Stay at Home Dad: Reflections on Todd and Sarah Palin

The nomination of Sarah Palin raised all sorts of interesting issues and one that I found interesting was the role of her husband, Todd.  There are some similarities between he and I.  He had five kids, we have four.  His wife works, as does mine.  Our youngest child has special needs just like theirs is.  It sounds like they’ve got a bit more flexibility than we have got and it sounds like Todd has a seasonal job, too.  Still, as I watched this family I felt that they reflected reality as I experience it and as more and more people … continue reading...

Democrats Deprived of Historical Moment, McCain Wins Christian Conservatives, McCain wins ME

By now I’m sure everyone has heard that McCain has selected Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, to be his vice-presidential candidate.  The strategic victory that this represents is clear to most, especially when compared to the Obama campaign.  The Obama campaign was about ‘change’ and a ‘moment of history’ but when the chips were down picked a VP that was old school.  Not that I blame him for not picking Hillary to be his running mate, but not doing so certainly watered down the mission for ‘change.’  With the Palin pick, conservatives are able to provide something ‘historic’ in … continue reading...

Welkome WND readers!

If you are here after reading my debut on Worldnetdaily.com and would like to comment on the column, this post would be the place.

My column on Worldnetdaily: “Apologetics the Cure for Social Ills?”

The evidence of societal decay is all around us. The California Supreme Court decision is not an isolated event. Despite eight years with a Republican president, much of that with a Republican-controlled legislature, abortion is still legal and rampant, and Roe v. Wade the “law” of the land. The cure, it would seem, is better legislative efforts and more efficient grass-roots campaigning for wholesome … continue reading...

Christianity, Christian Apologetics and Politics and World Affairs, Staff Writing for Laigle’s Forum

As tends to happen on occasion, complaints or concerns are raised that I, as a Christian apologist would weigh in on political affairs.  I’m also a citizen of this country and a normal human being and there is nothing about this blog or my site or my ministry that indicates that I plan on compartmentalizing myself.  Clearly, my main focus is apologetics as that is where my main passion is.

On the other hand, since I firmly believe that ideas have consequences and nonChristian ideas often have very bad consequences, in my quest to reach out to individual souls I … continue reading...

John McCain Wins South Carolina, Lays Groundwork for Run As an Independent

With John McCain taking South Carolina I think the Presidential campaign is finally going to get interesting.    Most conservative minded people I know and talk to are not really happy with any of the choices being offered on the GOP side.    This includes a general dissatisfaction with John McCain as well.   In fact, most of the conservative people I interact with or read are actually deeply opposed to McCain.  They would vote for him against Clinton and Obama, no doubt, but they wouldn’t be happy about it.

The two victories for McCain here I think will be a wake-up call … continue reading...

The Train Wreck that was Ron Paul at the GOP Debate Sponsored by Fox News

I don’t put much weight on political debates.   When I see one I don’t expect my position or views to change and I am always surprised to hear that other people’s views are effected.  I think the debate format has limited value.  There is usually no way you can elucidate your position in a short span of time, the moreso when you are talking about complex and complicated issues such as illegal immigration, foreign policy, and economics.  It is hard enough in the written format I prefer (www.sntjohnny.com/smf).  In fact, if you take the time to lay out your position … continue reading...
