Mea culpa. I have to come clean. Try to learn something from my mistakes. I am hard on some of you #NeverTrumpers, but I was once something like you — a dedicated, self-satisfied, high conscience loser, waiting for America to catch up with my standards. It goes way back to 1972, when my mom had..

I wrote about the strange martyrdom of #NeverTrump crowd the other day. They could be thrashing and screaming in the Niagra River, approaching the falls, hearing the thunder in the distance, and if Donald Trump was piloting a lavish, gold-canopied Trump cocktail cruiser and throwing out a life-preserver, they would look around for another option..
I’m pretty sure I know who you #NeverTrump people are. You are people of some faith, most likely. You are trying to make a living, and you are annoyed that a growing class of people don’t even care about making a living–and you make those coasting privileges possible. You couldn’t believe the America you love..
When a small, veiled woman never spoke, as her husband attacked Trump’s sacrifice and Constitutional literacy, Donald’s response only expressed what we were all thinking.. It shouldn’t be that startling an idea, but apparently people need reminding: different cultures produce different outcomes. If your family honor depends on scholarship, you’re bound to have a few..
People wonder why I attend a house church. Isn’t it obvious? Blogger Matt Walsh is upset with Christians in South Carolina, for voting Donald Trump in big numbers, but we should all ask ourselves the question: why would we expect anything else?

Islam has to answer for itself–or face the consequences. I don’t think I know an evangelical Christian who doesn’t have big plans for world missions. Christians..
We’re enduring, in America, another populist love affair with socialism, or “democratic Socialism,” as Bernie Sanders defines it, where the old fella seems to admit the government may not be able to manufacture working dishwashers, but it can, somehow, guarantee the lifestyle of the middle class. Hillary Clinton joined in the chorus and declared that..
Leave Style Issues to Lindsay Graham, please. We’re talking about the Leadership of the Free World Okay, I didn’t catch it all, but I did watch the warm-up show with Petaki, Graham, Jindal and Santorum, 3PM Pacific on CNN. (The air time alone would make me feel like the only adult playing in the little..
When Baptist Academics Look Like Perfume Ladies.. I have high standards for Christians. I expect them to be able to think their way through the consequences of their actions, employing a Biblical world view. I expect a Christian college to be a kind of “city on a hill,” and that means, that when repugnant ideas..
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.
