As the new year arrived, I started to reflect on the past few years and came up with a new term that describes what’s happening in our nation – ‘Selective Allowable Discrimination’ (SAD). I would define it as the practice of allowing discrimination of a selective group while banning discrimination of opposite groups. Let me …

My wife and I spent New Year’s Eve with friends. While we were enjoying our own festivities, I was watching one of the over-rated end-of-the-year celebrations on the Mac that was sitting on the mantle so we could keep track of the countdown. And what did I see? Admitted bi-sexual Jessie J singing John Lennon’s classic overrated atheist …

The Bible says that God took a rib from Adam’s side and created Eve. The process is never explained just like the process of creation itself is never explained. Now there’s a new theory: “A professor of the Bible in California has posed the theory that the Adam and Eve narrative in the book of …

Though we don’t have the Oscar nominations yet, I labeled this as one of my 2015 Oscar Watch commentaries because after seeing it, I am confident of two things: 1. The Revenant will receive an Oscar nomination for best picture and best director, and 2. Leonardo DiCaprio will win best actor for his gut wrenching …

One of the more depressing reminders of how short we fall of our potential as a country or even as a species is the odd phenomenon of post-holiday “flash mobs.” In a rash of criminal activity, mobs of young people in at least three states rioted through local malls on the night after Christmas, forcing …

While the legal case will continue to work its way through the courts, the bottom line is this: Kim Davis has won. The homofascists have lost. Last Tuesday, Kentucky’s new governor, Matt Bevin, issued an executive order that eliminates the names of all county clerks from marriage licenses and protects the unalienable constitutional rights and …

If Jesus had never been born, to borrow a phrase from C. S. Lewis, it would be “always winter, but never Christmas.” But some Christians, even today, think of the celebration of Christmas as a pagan holiday. When the Pilgrims and the Puritans had the opportunity to assert their influence, they did not celebrate Christmas. …

If you travel around the world, you discover so many differences, unique ideas and strange customs that make one people distinct from another. And yet, the birth of one child in a land few of us have visited can be the catalyst for bringing together widely separated cultures. Enjoy this small collection of different takes …

In today’s secular world, a growing number of theologians have been questioning the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. They have fallen into the trap of thinking secularly instead of thinking biblically and claiming that it was impossible for Mary to have conceived without having sexual intercourse with a man. Many of these liberal theologians ignore …

I heard someone say that they think about Christmas and the public school system, Scrooge, bah humbug and the Grinch comes to mind. I told him that there is one big difference, Scrooge and the Grinch realized the errors of their ways and changed for the better. The public school system refuses to change and …

I remember when I was in elementary school, we started each day with prayer and students were allowed to pray over their lunches in the cafeteria. In some classes we read from the Bible and openly talked about God, Jesus, the Bible and Christianity. In the mid 1960s, several Supreme Court cases banned school led …

It’s unusual to find a public official with the guts to stand up to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, one of the premier anti-Christian hate groups in the country. The litigious FFRF, which often uses threats of legal action to get its way and to suppress public displays of Christianity or Judaism, probably thought it had …
