Disregard for truth leaves us weak and vulnerable

I have a simple solution to the problem of Islamic terrorists…actually of any kind of terrorist. Simple, but not easy. Yet it is a lasting solution, and considering what’s at stake, well worth… Continue reading

Letting men be men

  Last week I saw the 60th anniversary showing of “Oklahoma!” at the cinema, and fell in love with Curly all over again…a handsome singing cowboy armed and ready to defend the woman… Continue reading

Our future environmental climate is less important than the future religious one

Prognostication is an uncertain business. When screenwriter Bob Gale and others involved in producing the Back to the Future trilogy depicted 2015 in Part 2, they came pretty close with a lot of… Continue reading

Rogue mothers have no decency

The third infant in three months was thrown to her death from a New York City apartment building yesterday. Well, why not? Six months old, 1 month old, 1 hour old….plus nine months.… Continue reading

It takes a village? Only if we hand them over.

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

What’s at the bottom of the slide?

What is a religious belief? Many who deny the existence of God would claim not to have any but that’s certainly false. Though religion can be defined as, “a pursuit or interest to… Continue reading

Danger ahead

I sometimes wonder how others see the world…in particular those who are ideologically and politically on the opposite side of the spectrum from me. Are they as concerned as I am about the… Continue reading

In the debate over same-sex marriage and homosexuality, just as in other issues about which people disagree, the answer to one question will mostly determine which side one will support: Or perhaps more… Continue reading

The tell-tale evil heart

I’m sure I’m not the only the one to see the irony. A Utah woman gets 30 years to life for killing her six newborns fresh out of the womb, when if she… Continue reading

You’re free to practice your religion…as long as you don’t bring God into it.

That’s the message we Christians have been getting lately. Our First Amendment guarantee of “free exercise” is conditional on submission to government-sanctioned ideology…not God. If in obeying him we end up offending someone,… Continue reading

Talk about discrimination…

If a person, business, or state government refuses to do business with or in the state of Indiana solely because of its recently signed Religious Freedom Restoration Act, are they not engaging in… Continue reading

Confidence, courage, and convictions

  Please consider something with me: Do you suppose that the stench that is ISIS, or Al-qaeda, or any Islamic terrorist group for that matter, would have had the same level of success… Continue reading

Intelligence does not guarantee truth

Isn’t it interesting how two equally intelligent and reasonable people can look at the same evidence and come to vastly different conclusions? What else is going on? As I’ve presented arguments for theism… Continue reading

Inconsistency is not insincerity

So yesterday Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Democrats in Washington are “going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation.” (Which, of course, wasn’t legislation but a Supreme Court ruling.) Does… Continue reading

What’s in your well?

When I was a young girl of 12 and 13, back in the day, I was a victim of some relatively mild middle-school harassment from a few girls in my class…knocking my coat… Continue reading
