James Madison and Religious Freedom

James Madison and Religious Freedom

James Madison’s defense of religious freedom began when he stood with his father outside a jail in the village of Orange and heard Baptists preach from their cell windows. Their crime? Preaching without a license from the government.

The High Priest of the Abortion Sacrament

The High Priest of the Abortion Sacrament

Many years ago, the god Molech demanded people sacrifice their children in his fiery embrace in exchange for prosperity.  He has a different name today, but children continue to be sacrificed to the god of prosperity and convenience. There is no doubt in the mind of countless American’s that President Obama is the High Priest of Abortion and he will do all in his power to protect, promote and to preserve this violent and horrific evil.

Your Tax Dollars, Up in Smoke

Your Tax Dollars, Up in Smoke

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration found that government owned General Motors’ showcase electric vehicle, the Chevy Volt does not have a problem with catching on fire in spite of two test vehicles becoming engulfed in flames weeks after being subjected to test crashes.  With 8000 Volts out there, and at least one mysterious fire in garages of these owners to go along with the NHTSA fires, one has to wonder if the findings have more to do with the Obama Administration’s desire to promote the Volt rather than a real concern about consumer safety.

Opiate of the Masses?

Opiate of the Masses?

Ever since Karl Marx penned his denunciatory statement on religion in 1843, secularists, social progressives, and other opponents of religion have worked to convince us that religious faith is an outdated relic of the past. But a growing body of evidence indicates that perhaps the growing indifference to religion in America is not so much the product of enlightenment as it is the result of ignorance that is so easily facilitated by vain pursuits, intellectual indifference and mindless amusement.

A Long Fall From a Short Height

A Long Fall From a Short Height

I read something recently that made me very sad. It was the blog of a man who I’d heard of in the past presenting himself as a strongly evangelistic Christian, but who now emphatically considered himself an agnostic. In reading about this transition, I realized he hadn’t really fallen from a great height, because he never had dwelt in the high place of real Christianity.

How Dumb Do They Think We Are?

How Dumb Do They Think We Are?

There is one good thing about people who insult our intelligence; they’re probably misunderestimating the true level of our understanding. We may not be demonstrating in the streets.  We may not be organizing boycotts.  We may not be united behind one candidate.  However, we are awake.  We are educating ourselves.  We are determined that this great experiment in human freedom shall not perish from the face of the earth.  Vote for the Constitution.  Vote for personal liberty.  Vote for economic freedom.  If we all do what we can do we will accomplish what must be done.

Debt, Uncertainty and Volatility in 2011

Debt, Uncertainty and Volatility in 2011

The world markets groaned as the burden of the rising American debt and the European deficit weighed down more productive countries. European authorities sought to avert a Greek default on their watch without promising to engage the same heroics for Italy. And in the United States, politicians kicked the can down the road, blaming everything except excessive spending.
