Regarding racial reconciliation, it was said in a sermon that the church must consist of a variety of political opinions in order to provide hope to the world. So just how much compromise must a congregation exhibit in this regard? Is it enough for a church to admit that some will vote for Trump because they have concluded that he is the best option available among a limited selection and that some will not vote for him because his personal shortcomings are too profound? ...

At the Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, attendees were allowed to decide for themselves whether or not they would wear a mask. Medical establishment functionaries (many of which no one elected to office or not even employed as part of the civil service) issued numerous pronouncements decreeing that those deciding not to conceal their countenances in the proscribed manner were threatening the lives of those with compromised immune systems. But unlike a supermarket, one does not poss...

There is one thing that Americans will agree on and that is that the country is in a mess. The socio-economic situation totters on the brink of collapse with deficits and debts poised to consume in wholesale the total value of the nation's wealth. Upon hearing of trial verdicts or police actions not to their liking, like clockwork certain predictable segments of the population no longer simply utilize their constitutional rights to articulate their disagreement but instead like invading hordes l...

Jeroslav Pelikan is quoted as saying, “Apocalypticism ... was the mother of all Christian theology.

A Berkley academic that no doubt fancies himself an advocate of diversity, multiculturalism and moral relativism has proposed altering a variety of policies aimed at making the lives of those that dwell in rural areas uncomfortable. This is apparently punishment for individuals daring to exhibit the audacity to make life decisions other than his. His argument is that it is not efficient to extend the conveniences of twenty-first century existence to those living beyond the confines of conc...

  The Holy Roman Empire is almost forgotten today, however, it's influence, in may ways, can still be felt. After reconquering Africa and Italy around 530 AD Emperor Justinian codified a set of laws that is considered the base of Western Civilization. After this accomplishment, laws, and not petty dictators and violence, more often then not, controlled civilization.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has condemned the bestowing of the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Rush Limbaugh on the grounds that he is a “violent racist”. Limbaugh, even if some of the things he has said over the decades were of questionable taste, has never advocated acts of violence. That is more than can be said of those that Ocasio-Cortez associates herself with such as Black Lives Matter, Al Sharpton, and Ilhan Omar who dismissed 9/11 as some people just doing something. ...
