Don’t Turn to Pharaoh. Turn to God.


I always think it sounds crazy to say stuff like this, but here goes — I was on the treadmill yesterday and just distinctly and overwhelmingly had the need, not just urge, to read Exodus 5. That is the most random thing ever, I realize. Of all the bits and pieces in the Bible, I am doing 7 mph on a treadmill and suddenly overcome with the unshakable conviction I must slow down the...

The Glorious Impossible


Nine years ago this past week my wife was given six months to live. On the same day that we received that diagnosis, I lost my job. I spent the afternoon exhausted, sitting in mud, cradling my one year old in the rain, while I cried. Having left the hospital to get my child from day care, I was too exhausted to get up and go inside. It was a Christmas to remember. My wife and I sat in her...

The Angels’ Sound


“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!’” Luke 2:13-14 (ESV) Have you ever wondered what that angel song sounded like? Were the angels singing the sound of Beethoven’s Ninth with booming drums and crescendo surrounded by deep bass voices elevated by...

Hey Look! Turns Out Willing Officials Can Make Compromises


The Democratic Party, as it has gotten more and more secular, is unwilling to do the things necessary for people who disagree to peacefully coexist. It should have been an easy thing to keep Kim Davis out of jail in Kentucky. But Democrats refused to do anything. The Governor would not issue an executive order. He would not convene the state legislature. He demanded Kim Davis violate her faith...

Remember: Tolerance Is Just a Word They Use, But Do Not Mean


Houston voters decisively rejected the gay mafia’s attempt to force their world view on voters — a world view that would have let men into women’s restrooms. Houston voters decided, instead, to stick with a few thousand years of the status quo. It is also a status quo that exists in most of the rest of the country. So, having lost democratically, the gay mafia will now attempt...

The Stupidest Thing Ever Written About Pope Francis and Kim Davis


Gabriel Malor is a Republican gay rights activist who spends about as much time on twitter advocating for Republicans as he does trying to convince the world that his favorite sin is no sin at all. Thus we arrive at Malor’s take on Pope Francis having a private meeting with Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis. Just read this: Been asked about this in DM and, having written more than 140...

Have We Not More Faith Than This?


“We cannot compartmentalize our faith. We cannot say I’m a Christian, but this is separate. We cannot tribalize Christianity” One of my favorite emails after the Trump situation at the RedState Gathering was this piece of hate mail, which I present to you in its entirety from email address to email signature line, lightly edited. From: heavenbound****@****.com Subject: What...

ESPN Punishes Curt Schilling for Taking on Radical Islam


This is really outrageous. Curt Schilling pointed out how few people in Nazi Germany really identified with the Nazi Party to point out that even though so few people identify with radical Islam there is a problem. His point was sound. But it outrageously outraged ESPN, a network that has put political correctness ahead of truth and news. So they’ve yanked him from a little league broadcast...

Are We This Cruel A People?


“The tapes were heavily edited,” claim supporters of Planned Parenthood. So the unedited tapes were released. “But they were edited,” claim the Planned Parenthood supporters. Never mind that the Center for Medical Progress has released their videos in raw, unedited form. I am writing, of course, about the series of videos taken undercover at Planned Parenthood facilities around the country. In a...

Killing Them


“The sick irony of President Barack Obama’s administration is that he often compares himself to Abraham Lincoln. But he is perfectly happy to let Planned Parenthood sell off black children in bits and pieces as property.” We have passed the point where Nazi comparisons are inappropriate. In the latest video about Planned Parenthood, if you want to watch it, you will see an...
