Nazis Used Romans 13 to Neutralize Christians

Recent events have called into question the issue of obeying the government in all ways—even in all circumstances. In the 13th chapter of Romans, Paul says that God has given us the government as a minister of righteousness. It is our duty to obey it. But we also see in Scripture that on occasion, when […]

American Flag No Longer Welcome in America

Starting with the flag flown on New England ships in 1775 that was white with a Liberty Tree and words ‘An Appeal to Heaven,” millions of American colonists and citizens have given their lives to protect the American flag and the right to fly it. One of my prized possessions is a 48 star American […]

Angelina Jolie Tells a Broken Story of Louis Zamperini

I have rarely looked forward to a movie release more than I did Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, the film adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s book of the same name. Zamperini is a hero, a national treasure, and happens to share two things near and dear to my heart: A faith in the one, true God, and the fight on spirit […]

What the Film ‘Unbroken’ Leaves out of Louis Zamperini’s Life

Unbroken opens Christmas day in major theaters across the United States. It’s about the life of Louis Zamperini. According to some, it’s only about some of Louis Zamperini’s life. It’s based on the book of the same name written by Laura Hillenbrand. Hillenbrand delighted audiences with her book Seabiscuit that was also turned into a […]

Plaque Controversy: I Say Let the Democrats Have Abraham Lincoln

A plaque on Northeastern Illinois University’s Frank Lloyd Wright building reads “This building is dedicated to public service honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln — Democrat.” I first saw this story on Facebook. It’s now getting wider attention. The controversy is over identifying Lincoln as a “Democrat.” In reality, he was our nation’s first Republican […]

Feds Barricade WWII Memorial But Some Lawmakers Removed Barricades For Veterans

Back in March the federal government was hit with President Obama’s sequestration budget cutting plan.  He had used it as a form of blackmail against Republicans, but the GOP called his bluff, leaving it to Obama to sign the sequestration into law or not.  When he did, the Obama administration did everything possible to make […]

It’s ‘Daylight Saving Time’ not ‘Daylight Savings Time’

Each and every year we spring forward, moving our clocks ahead an hour in the Spring, and fall back, moving our clocks back and hour in the Fall. This year, Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins this Sunday, March 10, 2013. Not every state complies with this yearly ritual. Daylight Saving Time is not observed in […]

Obama Praises Himself During Eulogy for Sen. Daniel Inouye

If blacks think they had it bad, what about Japanese Americans in Hawaii after the attack on Pearl Harbor?  Many were interred in what amounted to prison camps until they were deemed to be unconstitutional. One young Japanese American, Daniel Inouye, was a studying pre-med at the University of Hawaii during the beginning of World […]

Tribute to World War II Veterans Sets Guinness World Record

The United States’ involvement in World War II ran from December 7, 1941 to August 15, 1945 with the surrender of Japan.  The war started nearly 71 years ago, which means that the men and women that served during that time are now in the late 80s and older. My dad, joined the U.S. Navy […]

Does Anyone Respect The American Flag Anymore?

When I was in grade school, I was taught proper flag etiquette.  Among the rules that dealt with the American flag was one that I was told was among the most important and that was to NEVER let the flag touch the ground.  I remember an older boy in our school that was getting ready […]

Secretary of Education Pushes to De-Value College Degrees

No matter what the item, product, or service is, the more people that have it, the less valuable it becomes individually. Collectibles are only really valuable when there is a limited quantity of them.  Some years back, baseball trading cards and Beanie Babies were all the rage, but once the market got flooded with them, […]
