A Huge Step Backwards

Mike Pence

But I’m not writing this article to give you a brief amateur lesson in Constitutional Law but to give you a basis for understanding this….The Constitution protects our right to be idiots plain and simple and past history has born that statement as a “truism” more times than I can count. So why was I surprised when Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed into law a bill that would allow business to discriminate using religion as an excuse. The “Religious Freedom Act” would allow business to deny service to anyone if the owner feels providing that service would conflict with his religious beliefs. I guess Pence forgot about a much high law, the Constitution. You see you can’t protect one person’s Constitutional rights at the cost of another.

Christians v. Muslims

February 23, 2015
Christians v. Muslims

This is not “lone wolfs hijacking a religion.” It is radical suppression by oppression of the “moderates” who will not fight back. Too many self-proclaimed “moderates” surrender to and embrace radical extreme Islamism out of fear for their lives. This is the explanation; research the PEW Polls on this issue. It can never be a justification.”

The Folly of “Fundamentalism”

January 12, 2015
Fundamentalism

Juan Cole, in a particularly dopey moment, compared Sarah Palin, of all people, to the sort of people who just carried out a mass murder in Paris. “The values of [John McCain’s] handpicked running mate, Sarah Palin, more resemble those of Muslim fundamentalists than they do those of the Founding Fathers,” he wrote. “What’s the difference between Palin and a Muslim fundamentalist? Lipstick.”

Christmas 2014

Reagan always had the ability to communicate complicated issues and concepts to the general public in the most simple terms. In this address, Reagan reminds everyone of the origins of Christmas and how it is celebrated by different members of the American populace. Then, he goes on to relate Christmas to those who find it the most special: The children.

Even the most powerful leader in the Western world, one who describes himself as a Christian, decided that the Christians hunted by ISIS and starving on Mount Sinjar were not of sufficient numbers to warrant America’s military assistance. Yes, Obama did mention his shock and disgust at the You Tube video showing the beheading of an American journalist under the literal sword of an ISIS terrorist who some suspect to be traveling on a British passport. The President was shocked, shocked. But then he headed off to the first tee and continued his golf game.

Easter Weekend at the Movies

April 21, 2014
Faith Based Film

There appears to be a growing trend in theatrical releases in the United States of faith based film. In fact, since the beginning of the year, there have been no less than four major releases which fit this category. However, one of them was actually attacked vigorously by the faith based market, “Noah,” for violating themes set forth in the biblical story of Noah and the Ark. This attack proved successful as the film collapsed after a strong opening weekend. The other three have over performed and may be opening the door for more faith based films in the future.

I’m Christian – I think ‘Noah’ deserves four stars

March 31, 2014
Noah

Noah is a major Hollywood blockbuster, made by an atheist director best known for his previous flick where a mentally disturbed lesbian ballerina goes insane and bleeds to death on stage. Already, a critical person might be slightly concerned about his handling of the Bible, considering what he just did to the ballet.

These concerns grew from suspicion to reality before it was even released, when the man himself came out publicly and professed Noah to be both an environmentalist propaganda piece, and the “least Biblical” Bible film ever made.
