Our Collective Consciences are Seared

Over the last few weeks, I have forced myself to watch every single one of the Center for Medical Progress videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of fetal body parts to StemExpress. I was shocked by the cavalier conversations about “tissue” and “procurement.” The most recent video was the most horrifying of all: a fully intact male […]

Black activists feel abused by the Democrats

Have you seen this? The Democrats have had a stranglehold on black voters for years, which doesn’t make a lot of sense since the Entitlement state has done so much damage to black families and communities. This result was inevitable. In 2008, Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, with the most liberal […]

Glenn Beck and the Political Gospel

Great Post today from Dr. Russell Moore about Glenn Beck’s rally in Washington, DC. Read the whole thing here. A few gems… Too often, and for too long, American “Christianity” has been a political agenda in search of a gospel useful enough to accommodate it. There is a liberation theology of the Left, and there […]

We Don’t Deserve Safety, Prosperity or Greatness

A powerful quote regarding abortion from Tony Woodlief in World Magazine: But I’ve come to believe that a nation that tolerates destruction of innocents deserves neither safety nor prosperity nor greatness. We’ve descended into barbarism, and it poisons how we treat the elderly, the incapacitated, even ourselves. We shouldn’t be surprised, having made life a […]

Choose Your False god

One of the most refreshingly honest and penetrating albums for Christian consumption in recent memory is Derek Webb’s Mockingbird. This album was marketed using the increasingly popular give-it-to-me-for-free-and-I’ll-pay-what-I-think-its-worth strategy. This was a good move, since most Christian bookstores wouldn’t stock it anyway because it contains such incendiary language as “sex” and “whore” and he dares […]

The State of Black America – According to Bill Cosby

Barack Obama’s candidacy and his speech on race in America have brought America’s original sin and subsequent racial issues back to the front of our collective conscience. This is good and healthy for America. Too many white Americans (myself included) have little idea of what is going on in the African American community, while assuming […]

Obama’s Extreme Position on Abortion

Justin Taylor gives an overall summary of Barack Obama’s position on abortion, particularly noting the charge making the rounds that he supports infanticide. Jeremy Pierce also weighs in. By God’s grace may the day come when abortion is considered as unthinkable as slavery or racism or the halocaust. But if or when that day comes, […]

Democrats Dump Hillary–many thanks!

Bill Kristol offers a sincere word of thanks to the Iowan Democrats who successfully labored to put an end to the Clinton era of politics. I’m no liberal. But one thing that matters to me, more than necessarily a listing of policy preferences, is character. Yesterday, I posted a link to an MSNBC interactive tool […]
