They Cannot Destroy Our Firm Foundation

The COVID-19 pandemic, cancel culture, BLM, Antifia, nation-wide riots and impeachment have dominated the headlines one after the other for months. To say this year has been strange, is perhaps, an understatement of a lifetime.

However true that may be, partisan conflicts, fear, violence, and anger should not distract us from upholding and defending our first freedom, the foundation on which America was built and in which it thrived.

Imagining a Vain Thing

We don't have to imagine what life would be like without laws to secure life, civil rights and property, or faith in God. It's been in front of us ever since protests of George Floyd's killing in late May morphed into a violent revolution.

Hope in Dark Times

It’s easy to look around at everything taking place in our nation today and get discouraged. The coronavirus and related economic impact are lingering into the summer. Some states are experiencing record numbers of new cases, suggesting the fight could continue for some time. The George Floyd killing and its aftermath have brought racial issues in America to the foreground once again. Although America has done a lot to move beyond the problems of our past in relation to race, there’s undoubtedly more that can be done. But we’ve also seen the unfortunate truth that some elements in our society will exploit such tragedies for their own purposes.

In Times Of Crisis, Elected Officials Must Be Held to One Consistent Standard – The U.S. Constitution

When those entrusted with power to protect the God given rights of the people do so selectively, arbitrarily picking and choosing which freedoms are worthy of protection and to what extent, then we are no longer a nation governed by the rule of law but by the whims of men.

Nauseating Performative Acts by Celebrity Racists

I had awarded Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey the award for Most Cringeworthy Performative Act/photo op of 2020 for his fake body-wracking sobbing while kneeling at George Floyd’s casket. Frey’s performative act/photo op topped even that of the genuflecting congressional thespians adorned in culturally appropriated African kente-clothe scarves led by prayer warrior Nancy Pelosi.

America Is Not Racist

I am really torn about what to say about the upheaval going on in our nation. I have spent a lot of time reading, researching, and listening to various sermons, presentations, and articles on things like the social justice movement, intersectionality, racism, cultural Marxism and virtue signaling in our culture and in our churches…

I recently had a “discussion” with someone that almost instantly turned into my having to prove I am not racist . . .  as defined, of course, by his perceptions, not my heart, or my statements, or my actions.

I love America and I love the …

Drew Brees, the Mob, and the Poisonous Doctrine of Collective Guilt

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, a committed Christian, and, before last week, deeply admired and liked by people of all colors and no color, committed an almost unforgivable sin. He said this in response to a specific question about athletes kneeling during the national anthem:

4 Reasons the Race Riots Do Far More Harm Than Good

As city after city in America is under assault, with buildings on fire and bloodied bodies laying in the streets, we need to unite in our condemnation of these violent riots. There is nothing righteous about looting. Or bashing someone over the head with a skateboard and pelting him with stones. Or vandalizing the store of a black business owner.
