When a politician in America describes themselves as “a person of faith”, what are they telling us about themselves? Nothing. Nothing good, anyway. Everyone has faith and everyone is a person, so claiming to be a “person of faith” literally says tells us nothing about the person making the claim. As we all know (or […]
I’m only in my forties, but it seems very old of me to remember a day back when American conservatives actually seemed to want small government. I say “seemed” because I now realize that they never wanted small civil government. At least not for as long (and far longer) than I’ve been alive. What American […]
Here we are not even four months into Trumptopia and things are already so bad and so disappointing on so many levels that even Ann Coulter is noticing…and admitting that she’s noticing. Here’s how The Daily Caller addressed Coulter’s semi-awakening in an article posted yesterday: “Conservative author Ann Coulter was one of the most vocal […]
As we’ve chronicled again and again and again, American “conservatism” has become quite smitten with the LGBTQRSTD movement. Pagan conservatism is getting more gay by the minute. So much so that a raging, raunch-peddling, cross-dressing senior editor at Breitbart (you know, that “conservative” website) by the name of Milo Yiannopoulos has become the darling of millions of […]
As we collectively lurch like a zombie toward the coronation of either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump as this cycle’s system-selected counterfeit savior, people are losing their minds. They’re just going nuts out there. Panic and hysteria abound. Fear is everywhere. Which is just the way they like it; with “they” being those who are […]
“Show your pride and your support for Trump with this exclusive equality tee.” That’s the tagline posted for a neat new “LGBTQ for TRUMP” shirt posted at the Trump campaign’s online shop (pictured below): I wonder how many Veep wannabe Mike Pence has ordered? Whatever the answer to that one, other answers are, by the grace of […]
We’re not electing a pastor…so feel free to ignore everything the Bible says about character, wisdom, wickedness, virtue, vice, truth, judgment, success, and the wrath of God (via wicked leaders).
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. ~ Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. ~ Proverbs 9:10 . . . look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who […]
What if Hitler and Stalin (literal clones, mere ideological replicas or whatever) were somehow in the Trump/Clinton slots on the ballot? (Some would argue that they are, but that’s not the point here.) What if Hitler had won the nomination of one of America’s two major political parties and Stalin had won the other? What would […]
For whatever my thoughts on such things are worth (which is probably somewhere between very little and absolutely nothing), I’ve been suspecting for a while now that Trump is probably gonna win this thing pretty big in November. If pressed for a guesstimate, I’d say The Donald will likely have the biggest blowout win since the […]
For all of my adult life, and much of my pre-adult life, I’ve been very interested in politics. For most of my Christian adult life, I was a proud member of what I’d now describe as the Rush Limbaugh conservative camp and an ardent adherent of “lesser of two evils” political philosophy. Then, by the grace […]
Can overtly unbiblical power be seized and reliably used for good? Or must it be destroyed? Can the intrusion of civil government into realms and areas of life beyond its very narrow, very small, God-ordained jurisdiction ever be expected to yield more help than damage or more good than evil in the culture upon which it […]
Is more money what we need to save us? Maybe better corporate jobs? Or more corporate jobs? Or more corporate jobs paying more Federal Reserve-printed Monopoly money? Or better State-run Temples of anti-Christian children’s education? Or maybe a bigger military and a more empowered police state to “keep us safe”? Are these the things that we need to “Make […]
How long has paganized “conservatism”, often as wielded by the Republican Party in America, been actively escorting the culture to hell as the Left’s wingman? How long has secular “conservatism” been conceding point after point after point while marching its followers into the tyranny of American statism? At least for 150 years. Oh sure, the […]
Please pray that Donald Trump will be saved from the evangelical leaders who are sacrificing him for political gain.
Is Donald Trump playing America’s politically obsessed and thoroughly paganized evangelicals like a bunch of cheap fiddles, just like pretty much every GOP nominee before him? Oh yeah. Sure thing. No doubt about it. No surprise either. But could it be that these evangelicals – particularly the leaders of American evangelicalism – are actually playing Trump? […]
If Batman vs. Superman was bad (and it definitely was), then how should we categorize the ongoing barrage of teaser trailers for Clinton vs. Trump? How concerned should we be that fellow Christians seem to be once again falling right into the “Must Support The Lesser Evil” line? How alarmed should we be that American Christians seem to […]
While we may be tempted to feel all dirty, discouraged and downright icky at the prospect of America (led by American evangelicals) choosing Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as this cycle’s left and right halves of the two-headed dragon that’s dragging what’s left of the culture to hell, it’s important to remember that there is much good that will – and […]
Yes “Christian” Trump supporters, your daughters notice your hypocrisy…and are stripping accordingly.
What do you call a person (other than Donald Trump himself) who’s well known for their criticism of Bill Clinton’s open infidelity and abuse of women, Hillary Clinton’s power-mad enabling of that abuse, and Barack Obama’s proud assault upon the institutions of marriage and family, all while somehow managing to dismiss and ignore Donald Trump’s […]
Thank God for Donald Trump! Yes, really. In The Donald’s ascendancy we are being graced with so much more clarity than we could ever have expected where our pride, unrepentance, and desperate condition as a people are concerned. God is indeed doing something “absolutely amazing” through Trump. So as we wade through the wails and […]
With the fear-driven American political puppet show drama about to hit its primary season peak (right on schedule), we’re well served to resist the relentless promotion of emotion-driven anxiety pitched by countless (and often “conservative Christian”) media mouthpieces and take a moment to calmly (you know, as if King Jesus is actually on His throne) assess just […]
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” If only. Now “what happens in Vegas” is running for President…and winning. Or at least leading in the polls so far, anyway. The Republican polls. With truckloads of support from “evangelical conservative Christians”, to boot. “Conservative Christian” leader Jerry Falwell Jr., President of Liberty University, made news recently […]
So American evangelicals have found their strip club owner! They’ve found the one strip club owner capable of saving the culture. They’ve found the one strip club owner able to “Make America Great Again!” At least that’s the proclamation of one Jerry Falwell Jr., who, according to various reports published today, has decided that Donald […]
Have you ever had a friendly (or at least friendly-ish) debate or discussion with someone who was kind, intelligent, and generally courteous, yet they just couldn’t conceive of, much less embrace the notion that after carefully listening to and considering their position, you both A) understood it accurately, and B) disagreed with it reasonably? No matter how many […]
Lamar Alexander. He’s folksy. He’s polite. He’s “successful”. And he’s a Republican. So he’s gotta be good then, right? Well… He’s also for adding new taxes, against eliminating Cabinet departments, for raising existing tax rates, for increasing the so-called “debt limit”, for expanding Food Stamps, for “Cash for Clunkers”, against defunding the “Bridge to […]
Confessions of a Stupid Elephant (Sample Chapter from “Stupid Elephant Tricks – The Other Progressive Party’s War on Christianity”)
Is my vote honoring to my God?
Corpseman Obama has a plan. And it’s working. (In the progressive sense of “working”.)
Sure, he may not be the brightest bulb in the pack, but he’s still The One and can at least usually read accurately from a teleprompter. When he does, his message is clear:
He’s all about expanding the slave state in America.
What a difference a day makes. A day when somewhere around two million strong decide to march on the nation’s capitol, that is.
As the masses mobilized, the Statist media went into a tizzy and liberal activist from coast to coast scurried about trying to tag the millions of liberty-loving American protesters as everything from unenlightened and reactionary to hateful and (of course) racist.
