Some of you might need a drink… When a celebrity couple splits up, or their lives go awry in some spectacular way, we aren’t surprised.

Fellow believer, let me tell you something: If you voted for Obama, or for 96% of those Democratic senators, you helped make the continued killing of children by Planned Parenthood possible.
“Do the right thing.” ..Thus admonished Morgan Freeman’s character, a New York judge, in Bonfire of the Vanities, as he faced down a mob of social justice vigilantes, bent on crucifying a wall street trader for a hit and run traffic accident. Morgan’s judge made the pronouncement as though the nature of that mandate were as..
I got in a war of words with a prominent reformed pastor the other day. I’ll call him “Junior,” because my fight is not so much with him, but the error he represents. Through the miracle of of Facebook, we went head to head. There’s no fight quite like a theological fight, and this one..

Mel Gibson had this part right.. In the wake of this week’s narrow victory for homosexual rights, get ready for a lot of half-truth solutions: we need to be kinder, less judgmental, more free with Christian charity. Preach the sinner’s prayer and then everything will sorta just fix itself, right? Well, the entire gospel includes..
In Defense of Empire Rand Paul and his pops, should be applauded for defending the Constitution, but thoroughly scolded for lamenting a better way.
