No Sam Killay – you’re reinforcing why people think atheists suck

Claremont atheist threatens satanic display if city nativity, menorah not removed “As an atheist, Killay said seeing religious symbols on city property is offensive“ Militant Atheists – they say believe in “no religion” and have no beliefs but they do.  They hate we who do and their main doctrinal statement is this: anyone who is …

Christian? It’s a private thing. Gay? Tell the whole world! What’s that say about our culture?

Is the culture, led by the MSM and other cultural “elites”, anti-Christian?  Seems to be, when one reviews how denigrated Tebow has become these last couple of years – simply for being a man of faith, giving credit to a higher power than himself, professing a traditional sense of faith, and sticking to set of …

He has risen, indeed

Today is Easter – in my mind, the most solemn, yet joyous day in the Christian calender. It is the culmination of the Old and New Testament – God’s love for us.  In His absolute holiness, our sin (from the free expression of will) is anathema – holiness cannot accept any blemish of that holiness. …

Jan Schmidt – Democrat candidate for NH State House from Nashua, hates religion. That includes Muslims, so it seems.

Tesha has a habit of saying things in such a way that I’d be censoring her a lot (here’s a screen cap): “The Catholic Church in a powerful force in Maine so when the men in dresses who f*** little altar boys told their parishoners[sic] that gay marriage was wrong and a sin, the rubes …

Do You Get Tim Tebow?

I’m listening to Michael Graham on the way home last night.  It is at most a 15 minute drive so there isn’t much exposure to the program and I frequently tune in in the middle of some topic.  Last night I caught part of a segment on Tim Tebow,  the sudden attention he has attracted, …

The Liberal Darkness

Nothing they say today will matter tomorrow. And this applies to their policies as well. We see this in the bald faced contradictions of their own words and ideas; their disregard for anything that slows their accumulation of power. And they will do and say anything to hold power because they are spiritually empty, disconnected–hoping power will somehow complete them.

Out On A Lim

I can’t count the number of self declared “regular churchgoers” that I know who have no idea what it actually means to be Christian, or take away any meaningful lessons from the experience. I see them struggle with life as if completely unequipped to handle even the simplest challenges. Every new book, idea, plan, or program that comes along is the next path to understanding and happiness. And for a few weeks or even months they think they have found it until it collapses under its own weight.

“Never go to a gunfight without a gun and…never go to a religious war without religion. You’ll lose.”

I reflected on the above idea about a year ago in a posting on my old blog, "Confessions of a Bouncing Porcupine." In reviewing it today, I find it stands up well. It’s still topical too. The baseline message is this: What we call "Faith" is a sword. A weapon. This fact is ignored at our peril…especially in these days …

Separation Of State…from Church.

Yesterday I came across a series of poorly worded essay questions—my second sons homework–the worst of which was this; What part of Article VI of the US constitution supports the idea of separation of church and state? Explain. (Go ahead and roll your eyes or make a grunting noise, or whatever it is you do when confronted with such nonsense.)
