The Love of Theory is the Root of all Evil

The Love of Theory is the Root of all Evil

Bill Whittle has an interesting take on the nature and behavior of liberals. Consider this statement: “The love of theory is the root of all evil.” Then let Whittle explain it to you.

Calling a Catholic a Catholic & a Pelosi a Pelosi or Even a Sebelius

Calling a Catholic a Catholic & a Pelosi a Pelosi or Even a Sebelius

It isn’t my place to decide whether Nancy Pelosi remains a Catholic in good standing with the Church itself (or even with God), but it is very difficult not to take note of her very defiant attitude and willingness to show the world how she thinks “she” can pick and choose who speaks for the Church and who defines the rules. Does she perhaps think she has some specially authority to by-pass and denounce the Church’s teachings, when they are an inconvenience to her agenda and in the way of the goals set forth by her and her pals?

Fitting to Acknowledge Almighty God’s Protection

Fitting to Acknowledge Almighty God’s Protection

Forced to resign from the Army for excessive drinking, he failed as a farmer and a businessman. Not until he volunteered for the Civil War did things change. He was promoted to brigadier general, captured Fort Henry and Vicksburg, and won Union control of the Mississippi. Lincoln placed him over the entire Army and within a year he forced Lee to surrender. His name was Ulysses S. Grant, born APRIL 27, 1822.

Bureaucrats Seek to Regulate Family Farm Work

Bureaucrats Seek to Regulate Family Farm Work

Is it that the Left simply has a war on everything good and normal? Or is it just an irresistable impuse liberals have to meddle in everthing that normal people recognize should be left up to individuals to manage? Such are the questions when we hear that the Department of Labor wants to regulate farm work, and children helping out with the family farm.

EPA Administrator Admits: I Want to Crucify Oil Companies

EPA Administrator Admits: I Want to Crucify Oil Companies

Given that we’ve known since before the 2008 election that Barack Obama loathes the American free market economy and the energy of our economic engine so much that he wants to “bankrupt them,” it should come as no surprise to us to learn that one of his fellow Leftists, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, has admitted that he wants to “crucify” oil companies.

Racism, or Plain Old Hate?

Racism, or Plain Old Hate?

On one hand, the Obama Administration’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment (aka the “mainstream” media) stirs up hysteria over the killing of Trayvon Martin in a shooting that at the very least bears a strong resemblance to a self-defense shooting. The issue? Martin was black and the man who shot him was (in the words of the Ministry of Public Enlightenment) a “white” Hispanic. On the other hand, we only hear the crickets humming from the Obama Administration’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment (aka the “mainstream” media) when black people kill whites.

Who Will Stop the Power-Mad Man in the White House?

Who Will Stop the Power-Mad Man in the White House?

Barack Obama has chosen not to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act and has also directed the Environmental Protection Agency to do an end-run around Congress by mandating a curb on “greenhouse gas” emissions. Obama has no authority to do any of these things. He has no authority to refuse to defend the laws of the United States. It seems Obama has “determined” that the Constitution is unconstitutional.

Democratic Folly Could Make Us See Red

Democratic Folly Could Make Us See Red

The Democrat Party has officially attached their seal of approval to what most would agree is an Administration which is actually “fundamentally transforming America” into a Socialist enclave. This election showdown is now in play for the simple reason that while it may be premature, the usurpers of freedom believe that their numbers spell victory. However, if our enemy is correct, one day this may be viewed as a peaceful overthrow, a revolution from the Stars and Stripes to the “Red Flag.”

No Laws Against the Christian Faith

On APRIL 26, 1607, English settlers landed at the site of Cape Henry, named for Prince Henry of Wales. Their first act was to erect a wooden cross and commence a prayer meeting. They ascended the James River, named for King James, and settled Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in America.

Have Christians Assumed a ‘Slacktivist’ Approach to Their Faith?

Have Christians Assumed a ‘Slacktivist’ Approach to Their Faith?

Slacktivism, a term coined in the mid 1990s, refers to the increasingly popular phenomenon of casual activism that is so easily accommodated by the Internet. Critics argue that slacktivists will eagerly click “like” on an issue or cause on Facebook and passionately promote it but do little or nothing in terms of meaningful activity that actually makes a difference. Friends, it isn’t enough to “like” God or “friend” Jesus.
