Freedom is best way to help low-income students

Freedom is best way to help low-income students

Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas and Congressman Luke Messer of Indiana have introduced a bill that could produce positive, badly needed change in American K-12 education. The bill allows for Title 1 education funds “to follow low-income students to any public or private school of their choice.”

Mercy Will Prevail

Mercy Will Prevail

Sometimes it feels as if we Christians are being scapegoated and ultimately driven unto the fringes of society. I am of no greater worth than my neighbor – no matter how he identifies himself. This trumped-up emphasis on sexual identity is way overblown. We are not what we desire, but rather, we are what we embrace.

Will No One Blow the Trumpet?

America was once known as “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. Today, we are neither. Oh for the good old days when men were brave and America was free. Has there ever been a time in American history when moral leadership was so lacking?

Who Owns the Land

What we are witnessing is a war of worldviews. On the one hand we have the Biblical worldview, recognizing that God has authority over human government. On the other side of the worldview war is the atheist, humanist, progressive who claims they are the source of law, they are the elite who essentially are gods.

The President Undercuts Stay-at-Home Parents

The President Undercuts Stay-at-Home Parents

What do we want our homes to be like? Is it good for our parenting years to be consumed with work and kids to the exclusion of much of our leisure and to the detriment of our recommended sleep? Are we writing off the effect of having a parent “always around” when our children are growing up (especially in their earliest years)? And what does outsourcing our parenting for 6-10 hours per day do to our ability to raise them as we see fit from a religious and cultural perspective?

Zero Tolerance

Zero Tolerance

The nones are in no way novel or unique in their rebellion. These nones merely reflect our natural propensity and complete denial of greater spiritual realities. For them, and a growing majority of secular society, to even promote the idea that we are sinners is considered “hate speech.” The foundational doctrine of original sin has become just another casualty of our religiously intolerant “progressive culture.”

SOS: Speaking of Seniors – Hospital Ignored Medicare Ruling

On January 28, 2015, I wrote a letter to a hospital to stop its attempt to collect $120.40 from a senior citizen client. I can show you the body of the letter without disclosing the details. Here is the body of the letter that I wrote to the hospital.

Pop-Culturized History Channel

I am grateful that the History Channel is bringing up the topic of our Founders, but I wonder – how accurate is it? For instance, the show inaccurately portrays Samuel Adams as a poor, bar-hopping, 30-year-old on probation. When in truth he inherited money and a business from his father, had a wife and children, was a political leader in Boston, had an abiding Christian faith, and was 43 years old when the events occurred. There is no evidence to support the “dramatic” depiction of Samuel Adams as a bar crawling, womanizing, street thug on probation.

Daily Beast Lies: American Family Association is ‘Hate Group’

Daily Beast Lies: American Family Association is ‘Hate Group’

I stumbled on a column from the Daily Beast website in which the writer, Dean Obeidallah, hurled such lunatic accusations at the American Family Association (AFA) that you would think no one would give his thoughts a second glance. Sadly, that’s not the case, because his kind of twisted thinking is what is being spread and amplified across all “mainstream” media outlets in our nation, and it’s what is widely accepted as “truth” among the deluded minds of the low-information Left.

This Coming Season of Persuasions

This Coming Season of Persuasions

Lately, what the Associated Press produces, at their usual daily pace, has become expected doses of slanted and even unfounded presentations. Since the last election, the thought of both Houses being in Republican hands has infuriated the AP’s cadre to the point of approaching the trash bin of governmental propaganda. As such, this unprofessionalism deserves a proper review. Especially so since their slick innuendos will continue and increase as 2016 nears.
