Homosexual War on Christianity Continues to Rage

Homosexual War on Christianity Continues to Rage

There are many people, including some supposed “conservatives,” who scoff at those of us who warn of the dangers of the radical homosexual agenda. Yet each week brings new evidence that what is at stake is nothing short of the loss of our constitutionally protected freedoms of speech and religion.

Rory’s Story Coming Soon

My wife, the beautiful and illustrious Konnie Ellis, has written a book that will be officially released on Jan. 24, but is available at Amazon.com and other locations including the publisher Tate’s website for pre-order already. The book is called “Rory’s Story” and it’s about her brother Rory who is a musical dynamo. He’s been playing the guitar since before he was old enough to get hand around the neck, and today can play more than a dozen instruments. As if this wasn’t amazing enough, when you consider that he’s been blind since birth, his story is even more astounding.

Legislation for Drug Testing of Welfare Recipients

Weak Republicans Help Obama

One by one, Republicans have ceded issue after issue to the Obama Administration — and it will likely have big implications on the outcome of the 2012 election. Defeat will come in one of two ways. Either the GOP will fail to capture the White House and make gains in Congress. That would be the conventional definition of “defeat.” Or, they will fail — even with the White House and Congressional majorities — to turn back the assaults on liberty that have become the hallmark of the Obama regime. Either way, America loses.
