Throwing in the Towel on Bathroom Bills

Throwing in the Towel on Bathroom Bills

This week in Starkville, Mississippi, members of the city council voted 5-2 to rescind a special rights ordinance. In Fayetteville, it took a groundswell of voters to undo what the liberal council had done. But ultimately, those voters prevailed, voiding a measure by a 52-48 margin that, among other things, would have allowed men to use the girls’ public showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms.

Conscience Counts

Conscience Counts

America has always been a nation with great respect for the right of conscience. As a people, we like the idea that a person should follow their heart, go with their gut, do what feels right. Our laws have traditionally followed this course by according deference to individual conscience on a whole host of matters.

Christians, Stand Your Ground Against Homofascism

As Christians, we are called to stand our ground, in love, against all wickedness. We do so not because we are righteous – we are not – but because of Christ’s righteousness in us. As Christ followers, we are to follow Christ. We are to stand for His truths. When we do, and while we may face persecution, He will ultimately honor our faithfulness for His own glory and purpose.

Why Nativity Scenes Matter in the Public Square

When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he explained that our freedoms come from God. “All men are created equal,” he says, and “they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” A nativity display on government property reminds us that all humans have unalienable rights- rights which cannot legitimately be taken away- because these rights come from God.

EEOC has become the problem, not the solution

EEOC has become the problem, not the solution

In 2011 the EEOC included “sex stereotyping” of lesbian, gay, and bi-sexual individuals as a form of sex discrimination. In 2012, the definition of discrimination warranting protection was again expanded to include transgender status and gender identity. Once we decide that right and wrong is a political problem rather than a religious/moral problem, our lives get turned over to politicians and bureaucrats.

Don’t Call It A Comeback! The Rise of Communism (in America?)

Don’t Call It A Comeback! The Rise of Communism (in America?)

“There is absolutely nothing new or unique that I’ve seen about the Ferguson protests with respect to communist activity. Communists have played a prominent role in many large protests and demonstrations. Along with anarchists, I think we tend to make up the most visible of anti-war, anti-corporate, and anti-state force protest participants.”

Church and State: Cohorts or Combatants?

Church and State: Cohorts or Combatants?

We’ve all heard the protests: “Separation of church and State! You can’t post the 10 Commandments in a courthouse! You can’t have Jesus in a Christmas play in a public school! That would violate the First Amendment!” Really? Have any of the people making such proclamations read the First Amendment, or what any of the founders said in regard to the relationship between the church and the state? Time for a dose of truth by way of a brief history lesson.

Lesbian Extremist Mayor Must Go — Now

Lesbian Extremist Mayor Must Go — Now

Houston Mayor Annise Parker has disqualified herself from the privilege of serving the people of south Texas. She must either resign, effective immediately, or Houstonians should begin, without delay, the process of recalling her from office. Strike while the iron’s hot, I say, and right now it’s glowing cultural Marxist red.

You Can’t Tame God

You Can’t Tame God

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Protecting Religious Freedom is not ‘Extremism’

Protecting Religious Freedom is not ‘Extremism’

This is my letter to the editor, printed in the Rapid City Journal today, defending South Dakota Senator Phil Jensen against the extremism of a so-called “Republican” who obviously is a better fit in the Godless Democrat Party.
