Correcting the Rev. William Barber

Watching the Republican and Democrat Nation Conventions this past two weeks have been awesome. A great spectacle of American politics, and surely, a sincere exhibition of the divide not only in American politics, but in America period. America in an a bombastic period of unrest. Social issues lead the day, and racial tensions are higher than we have seen since the 1960’s. We have become a nation of radicals, where screaming “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon”, and “what do we want? DEAD COPS!, When do we want them? NOW!” have become the battle cry of ‘equality’ in...

A Mother’s Advice

A mother’s job is (in part) to raise her children in such a manner that they are a well rounded, productive citizen that is prepared mentally, physically and emotionally to take on/deal with our world. Of course in the manner in which God has designed the family structure, the mother has help. The father is there to provide for her and assist as best he can in raising the child.

As long as you wear a mortal body you will suffer weariness and heaviness of heart. You...

The last two days have proven that the system of government established by our Founding Fathers, has been abandoned. After fighting a war that took 8 years and 4,400 killed in action, the United States won its independence from England by the blood of her sons. The survivors of that war, long since venerated in the halls of liberty and freedom world-wide, took their time to frame a network of laws under our Constitution that gave liberty and justice the members of its union. They held up the rights of the individuals, gave specific rights to the States, and excluded...

Beware: “The Experts” Are Not Always Experts

With every event, action, blog post or tweet that comes out from anyone or about anything even remotely notable, reactions are fast and plentiful. The news could be about a commuter plane shot down in the Ukraine, a new political scandal for the President, a shooting in Missouri, the Episcopal Church making the decision to ordain Gays and marry same sex couples, or a piece of toast that has burn marks on it that vaguely resemble the image of the Virgin Mary – it doesn’t matter. With the world of the 24 hour news cycle being what it is, and...
