[Pictured: A statue of Roger Sherman of Connecticut, who’s referenced in this article.] There are plans afoot, including by politicians in Connecticut, to effectively abolish the Electoral College. It’s a plan for liberals to hitherto control the presidency. Author Tara Ross has written a couple of books on the Electoral College, such as “The Indispensable Electoral College: How the Founders’ Plan Saves Our Country from Mob Rule.” She also hosts […]

Jesus said the meek shall inherit the earth. But today, could it be that the “geeks” of Silicon Valley are instead trying to inherit the earth? Brent Bozell, head of the Media Research Center (MRC), just released a blockbuster report on the problem of censorship by big tech Silicon Valley companies, like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Google. The report is called “CENSORED! How Online Media Companies Are Suppressing Conservative Speech.” […]

About twenty years ago, I produced a story for D. James Kennedy Ministries on the subject of a school prayer case in Santa Fe, Texas. On the one hand, many parents and ministers were eager to promote godly influence in the school district. On the other hand, the judge ruled against such influence and did so with great hostility. Here we are twenty years later, and the tragedy of the […]

[Picture of Longfellow, quoted here] Is America shaking its collective fist at God through the wholesale slaughter of the unborn? Some people virtually celebrate abortion. Cecil Richards, president of Planned Parenthood for a dozen years, is leaving her position as a virtual celebrity. Her “legacy” includes 3.5 million abortions by Planned Parenthood during her tenure. Some of the signs seen at January’s pro-abortion-rights march, such as “Abortion on Demand & […]

I can’t believe the depth of ignorance of many modern people in the West. Mass murderer Joseph Stalin, ruthless dictator of the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953, appears to be making a comeback, at least among some. During a time of willful ignorance toward what Stalin had been doing to his own people, he was often called “Uncle Joe”—with affection, in the West. Walter Duranty, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist […]

Throughout the centuries, the Christian church has been involved in health care. Jesus healed the sick, showed compassion to the needy, and told us to go and do likewise. The church created the phenomenon of hospitals. Even today, all over the world, many hospitals and many medical clinics in out of the way places do what they do because they were ultimately inspired by the love of Christ. But what […]

From time to time, someone objects to the need to attend church regularly. They say they can be good Christians without participating in church. I don’t agree. The Bible encourages church attendance. The letter to the Hebrews states:  “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one […]

One of the most interesting videos I have seen lately shows broadcasters from the Sinclair network all reading the same script about the threat of “false news,” and how fake news threatens our “democracy.” The video can be seen here. My favorite part is the last section where anchor after anchor (15 of them by my count) declares with great conviction—as if they just thought of this profound statement, “This […]

In the late 1800s, Horace and Daeida Wilcox, decided to create a nice, quaint Christian community in southern California. It would serve no booze, and it would even give free land to churches (at least Protestant ones), so that righteousness could be proclaimed. By 1903, the bustling little city had enough voters—166 men—to officially incorporate. It was called Hollywood. Meanwhile, movies were first being created over on the east coast. […]

What are Good Friday and Easter all about? In a sentence: Jesus was rejected that we might be accepted. When I was a child, I attended a parochial grade school where there was an in group, and there was an out group. I was always in the out-group. Sports were the end-all-be-all. And I was lousy in sports. I hated it during gym class, where they would choose two people […]
