You ‘Must be Made’ to Obey- May 17, 2015
While actions speak louder than words, words often predict future actions. Secular progressives’ words and actions rarely align. This is because the pseudo-utopian, wholly dystopian perch from which they view the world is so detached from reality that, from a cultural and public policy standpoint, they must disguise their intended actions in flowery and euphemistic language, or face near universal rejection.
Battling Anti-Christian ‘Stink Bugs’ at Graduation- May 10, 2015
Graduation season is upon us. Be it middle school, high school, college or graduate school, now is a time of joy and celebration for millions.
A Prayer for Marriage- May 3, 2015
Will Christians be Fitted with Yellow Crosses?- Apr 27, 2015
Amid the cross-country race to election 2016, the secular left’s utter disdain for both our Creator Christ and His faithful followers is fast approaching critical mass. Self-styled “progressives” – that is, America’s cultural Marxist agents of ruin – typically disguise their designs on despotism in the flowery and euphemistic language of “reproductive health,” “anti-discrimination” and “multiculturalism.”
Bake Your Own Damn Cake- Apr 12, 2015
Liberals overplay their hand. It’s part of the deficiency. Whether real or perceived, if the pagan left can rationalize a sense of “progress” on some freedom-killing cause du jour, then it’ll push, push, push until it falls flat on its face.
Gays’ and the Muslims Who Kill Them- Mar 15, 2015
We recently had a guest contributor at BarbWire.com link to an article that, to our disgust, calls for the “lawful execution” of homosexuals. It went unnoticed by our editors and was removed once discovered.
AFA’s anti-Christian-bigotry map- Mar 1, 2015
In 2007, and with that same nauseating arrogance that has come to define him, then presidential candidate Barack Obama duplicitously quipped, “I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are just so ‘90s. Their days are growing dark.”
Bigger Liars than Brian Williams- Feb 15, 2015
This gem from John Nolte came across my Twitter feed the other day: “Met Brian Williams once in DC. Starting to wonder about that story he told me about saving all those hostages at Nakotami Plaza. Barefoot.”
Treason: Obama Aids the Enemy- Feb 1, 2015
Well, that didn’t take long. This summer after Barack Obama inexplicably (and illegally) freed five of the Taliban’s most deadly terrorists in exchange for army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, I asked a burning question – a question that remains unanswered: “What will it take for our spineless U.S. Congress to impeach this tyrant? This is way beyond partisan politics. This is about justice. This is about the safety of the American people. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s biggest threat to national security. He is ‘an enemy within.’”
Incest: The Next Frontier in ‘Reproductive Freedom’- Jan 18, 2015
Like a plastic Piggly Wiggly bag fluttering about in the alley, those untethered from God’s natural law are violently tossed to and fro by the gusting winds of moral relativism. Jenny Kutner is one such Piggly Wiggly bag. A 20-something assistant editor at Salon.com, she describes herself as “focusing on sex, gender and feminism.”
Fanning the flames of left-wing violence- Aug 19, 2012
To borrow from President Obama’s Black Nationalist mentor, Jeremiah Wright, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate-baiting chickens “have come home to roost.” The hard-left group has become everything it presumes to expose.
Christians, silence is not an option- Aug 12, 2012
With the exception of one column previously penned, I pray this becomes my most widely read to date.
Liberal Tyranny and the Cluck Heard ‘Round the World- Aug 5, 2012
Writer Sinclair Lewis is credited with saying, “When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and waving a cross.”
Obama, NAACP Pervert Civil Rights- Jul 16, 2012
As his re-election hopes dim, the mainstream “progressive” media continue to run interference for Barack Obama. It’s predictable. They no longer even try to hide it. They persist in slobbering on their over-hyped, under-capable would-be savior as his campaign collapses around them. The sycophancy is embarrassing and the desperation palpable.

The Fourth Reich: Abortion Holocaust- Jul 9, 2012
I recently finished reading “Bonhoeffer” by Eric Metaxas. The book, a nearly 600-page biography of German pastor and influential theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, was simply life-changing. Throughout his page-turning treatise, Metaxas brilliantly illustrates how Bonhoeffer lived and died by Christ’s admonition, “faith without works is dead” (James 2:20).
