The Power of Making Someone Feel Despicable.. Picture a world where violent, armed bank robbery was so much a part of the social landscape that some hard left cities actually created “sanctuary” provision for it. This, of course, would represent even greater chaos than we now endure: capital would disappear, banking operations would assume combat..
Thinking out loud. Probably nothing, but I was wondering what it is that ties together unlikely bedfellows like gay activists, jihadists, socialists and radical environmentalists. Why, for example, do you find the defenders of a fluid sexuality that would get you thrown off buildings in Iran ridiculing any objection to Sharia law in the west?..
We need a Pharisee Purge, in the church, and the public square Picture a man—let’s call him Jeff—who toils, cleaning up after the abortion industry, clearing away its human carnage. Jeff makes a fortune quietly disposing of babies, or selling their parts. His human resources department profiles employees who can sweep up arms, legs, and..
Women Do Lie, Folks.. Shortly after the birth of my first child, I became passionately and adamantly pro-life. For me this meant I was passionately anti-abortion as well.

When Cortés’ lieutenant, Pedro de Alvarado learned that this festival would climax in..
A Collective Repentance In “The Reader” (2008) Kate Winslet plays a German woman facing trial for her small part in the Nazi extermination regime, but for the first 30 minutes of the story you would be tempted to conclude it was all bound to be a story about an older woman sexually initiating a younger..
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.
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..
I’m losing patience with people like the troubled freak on the right harassing my daughter– and it’s not for the obvious reasons.
