A Jew and a Catholic walk into a primary…

Jesus in politics. It does seem kinda’ weird. His mission here on earth was not at all political, but personal. He came to change and to save people, not a system of government.… Continue reading

Probably all I’ll ever say about immigration

That’s what I thought when I wrote this a few years ago. I was mistaken, because I’m going to say a little more when I imagine how President Jesus might handle the immigration… Continue reading

President Jesus…Pro-life or Pro-choice?

Philo-less Sophia

I think Caroline is a pretty name and I like owning it. My parents named me after my father’s mother who died giving birth to him, so that makes it extra-special to me.… Continue reading

I find it ironic that those who are the most passionate about certain “rights” and freedoms…to marry someone of the same-sex, determine your own gender, take the life of your child in the… Continue reading
