Op-Ed: Coronavirus Cured My Germophobia
October 29, 2020 09:15 Posted in: Culture, Policy - People laugh when I tell them my husband, rather a practical joker, calls me "Monk." After I've shaken someone's hand at a gathering after they're right out of earshot, he'll take the opportunity to lean over and whisper, "Wipe! Wipe!" All my life, I've been deeply afraid of germs. In fact, I am a germophobic person from a long line… Continue Reading
Loosey Goosey Evangelicals Misuse, Misinterpret, and Mangle Bible to Defend Open Borders
October 28, 2020 09:26 Posted in: Culture, Policy - Joe Biden said, "I respect no borders!" Well, neither do thieves, thugs, tyrants, and totalitarians. Nor do border-crossing drug lords, terrorists, pedophiles, disease carriers, and job seekers. Thinking Americans know that there must be order in everything. Without borders, there are no nations, but then, that's what leftists want. Protestors chant, "No borders, no walls, no USA at all!" Their… Continue Reading
Sunday Thought: The Morality of Allowing Bad Things to Happen
October 25, 2020 11:10 Posted in: Culture - You probably have heard this story before - my 4-year-old little girl was just diagnosed with cancer, and I am devastated by this news. I find it hard to pray. I feel angry, and I don’t understand why God would allow this to happen. People say God has a plan, and he is looking out for us, but how are… Continue Reading

October 22, 2020 08:38 Posted in: Culture, Elections, Trump - Persons suffering from mental health disturbances often develop intricate coping skills to mask the severity of imbalances.

Op-Ed: Is Adultery Required for Being a U.S. Presidential Candidate?
October 21, 2020 08:50 Posted in: Culture, Elections - Adulterers have served as U.S. President almost since our beginning. Our present leader is an admitted adulterer; however, he’s all we have. And he has kept his promises and has had unusual success in domestic and foreign affairs, the economy, COVID-19, and there is no reason to think he would stop keeping his word. As to any sexual affairs in… Continue Reading
Sunday Thought: Why Does Marina Abramovic Need to Tell Us She is NOT a Satanist?
October 18, 2020 07:29 Posted in: Culture - Marina Abramović, "I'm an artist, not a Satanist!" screams a recent article in the Guardian about Marina Abramović. So far, I haven't seen much reaction to that. For some reason, don't ask me why I keep seeing Bill Clinton, in my mind, when he said, "I did not have sex with that woman!." But anyway ... any guesses as to… Continue Reading
Will Voters Resist Repeating the Errors of History?
October 17, 2020 09:32 Posted in: Culture, Economy, Featured, Policy - We all have heard the cliches about history repeating itself - and understanding the past is the key to understanding the future.

Alexander Tytler was a Scottish advocate, judge, writer, and historian who served as Professor of Universal History and… Continue Reading
Op-Ed: Government Has No Authority to Control a Church
October 16, 2020 08:12 Posted in: Culture, Policy - Well, that’s not precisely true because if a church receives tax dollars, it is obligated to give an account for the use of that money and slavishly obey the government’s demands. If a church takes its currency, they must accept state control. With nickels go nooses. What the government funds it runs. And finally, with shekels come shackles—always. That is… Continue Reading
Leftwing Evangelicals for Biden Have Lost Their Moral Compass
October 15, 2020 08:50 Posted in: Culture, Elections - Evangelical Christians voting for Biden is as strange as a five-hundred-pound girl doing a backflip or an orangutan doing a tap dance. But then Evangelicals have been leaning left for decades since they made their break with biblical reliability. And a rule of life is, one always falls the way one leans. It seems they fell to the left and… Continue Reading
If Sports Are Redeemable, Why Isn’t Society?
October 14, 2020 08:45 Posted in: Culture - There is a vocal legion of Democrats that America's history of slavery and racism precludes it ever from being truly redeemed. Black Lives Matter and Antifa torch innocent cities and attack innocent bystanders (here, here, here, here, here, here, here - seriously, how many videos does one need to be convinced Trump isn't the enemy?) while demanding the whole white… Continue Reading
