Please, James White, in trying to sympathize with Al Mohler’s constituency problems (video link, apx: 33:00) it doesn’t do any good to lament his problems with “buildings named after slaveholders.” George Washington was a slaveholder. George Whitefield owned slaves. We can celebrate the end of slavery without detracting from the achievements of those caught up..

This sort of Thing.. Honestly, this is one of the things that frosts me the most about a Facebook jailing. It’s not just that you can’t post content, although that’s bad. You aren’t even given the courtesy of communicating with your friends, either on Facebook, or off it. There’s no — “would you like to..
The Government Will Buy Your Chalkboard.. ..As Long As You Forfeit The Bill of Rights Wrong. Our lawsuit against Claremont School district, (background here) filed by Thomas Eastmond’s Firm, has prevailed in its first big test. A federal judge has ruled today that.. “..the Court finds Riley has standing to pursue his claims.” “..the private..
..Including Moderation This might be an odd time to discuss this, (my current Facebook jailing for 7 days), but I actually do understand why social media platforms need to be moderated. If you have ever spent any time among the sort of folks who have absolutely no filter at all, you understand how ugly things..
Prepping for the Huckabee Show A funny, blessed day: yesterday morning, after a little online banking and email correspondence for the farm, I surfed Facebook a little, pondered a few bold points to make with Governor Huckabee on the show that night, and I registered some little micro-chunk of pepper or sesame seed (it couldn’t..
The Director of MOO (Ministry of Outcomes) Congressional Testimony Opening Statement (Sometime in the not too distant future) Members of Congress thank you for allowing me this time to address what has become an embarrassing reality for the 15,000 federal employees who have given their lives to MOO. As you know, Congress established MOO, the..
“It’s not the same when we do it” On modern American race relations, I have come to realize I have been too innocent, linear and naïve. I always thought it was a straightforward reality: never judge an individual and certainly never discriminate against an individual based on their broader associations – race, religion, ethnic group,..
Easter, Roundabout In a few weeks, Lord willing, my wife and I will take a first class vacation across the country in celebration of being married thirty years. I look forward to this, inordinately, in much the same way I looked forward to school starting in the fifth grade, and the yearly ritual of new..
The Content of Our Character? I find this startling: polite company, these days, apparently allows you to make sweeping, racist commentary about white men over fifty. A few years ago, I thought this was just the shrew-cackle of some far left feminists with daddy issues, engaging in the sort of edgy racism that would go..
You can ask, I guess.. Against my better judgment, I engaged a young “walk-out” correspondent on Facebook. I couldn’t help noticing a striking similarity to a conversation I had with an “Occupy” couple a few years ago. In both cases, the young, earnest protesters were unapologetic for having no idea what they were talking about. ..
