The Mourning After

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

About 10 minutes after the US Senate passed the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" late yesterday afternoon, the New York Times published this:

"The Senate passed landmark legislation on Tuesday to mandate federal recognition for same-sex marriages, as a lame-duck Congress mustered a notable moment of bipartisanship before Democrats were to lose their unified control of Capitol Hill."

As I watched the live coverage of the vote on C-SPAN, I was reminded of  the allegory in Plato's "Republic" about a ship with a dysfunctional crew, which represents the problems of governance in a political system not based on expert knowledge or absolute "Truth."

The crew is known as a "Ship of Fools."

While the fools are congratulating themselves this morning on their bi-partisan victory, half the nation is in mourning for a nation that once truly respected and honored traditional marriage---an institution God Himself instituted.

America is being "weighed in the balances" and yesterday we were found wanting.

A pill cannot fix this mourning after.

A majority of our elected leadership has been deceived.

Faith and Freedom Under Fire

Conservatives and faith leaders have been sounding the alarm about a bill making its way through the lame-duck session of Congress – a controversial measure that would codify same-sex civil marriage in federal law.

As of publishing time for this column, the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" had not yet been passed by the Senate, although it appears they have the votes.

Nor had the amendment that would protect conservatives and biblical Christians from being legally targeted by homosexual activists.

I'll be talking about the bill and its status on our live radio program this morning.

This is an overview of HR 8404. If passed it will be very consequential.

"World's Population Fulfills Biblical Mandate"

New data that shows the world’s population passed 8 billion people in November should be celebrated by the Christian community as a fulfillment of a biblical mandate, says a well-known Christian apologist. 

The new data also challenges Darwin's old Theory of Evolution, he says.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and gratitude---specifically, gratitude to God for his goodness and mercy.

Our nation has a rich history of being thankful to God.

I'll be taking a couple of days off from this column, returning Monday.

These are a few of the comments our presidents have made over the years as our nation paused to give thanks.

Be Blessed. Be Thankful.

2022 Election's Strange Coincidences In Arizona--and Elsewhere

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

The Democrats, mainstream media, and RINOs are complaining about voters’ concerns over election fraud, saying “we need to move on,” “quit living in the past,” and “no one cares about it as an issue, you’re hurting the Republican Party to continue focusing on it.”

There may be a grain of truth in all of that, but it’s outweighed by the fact that we may never get another Republican president into office and more states will turn blue if we don’t stop the fraud. 

Now the Arizona Attorney General is demanding answers from Maricopa County election officials after a number of voters were unable to cast their ballots on election day.

I'm not much into conspiracy theories, but good grief, this is beyond conspiracy and theory.

And it isn't only Arizona.
