States rights, same-sex marriage, and the end of the road

For some reason, I made my way to PoliticsUSA.com the other day and I came across a headline that made me question whether or not people actually read. Oklahoma’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that the state must remove its Ten Commandments monument at the state Capitol because it violates the state Constitution. Article 2, section 5 of the Oklahoma Constitution says, “No public money or property shall ever be appropriated, applied, donated, or used, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, or system of religion, or for the use, benefit, or support of any priest, preacher, minister, or other religious teacher or dignitary, or sectarian institution as such.” Now, states are free to decide these types of issues among themselves. However, those who oppose this truth always seem to point back to the establishment clause in the First Amendment of the Constitution, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” Merely having a 10 Commandments statue on the capitol is not an establishment of religion, especially if it is privately funded. If Oklahoma had been arresting and throwing their citizens in jail because they didn’t believe in the 10 Commandments, […]

Jesus never taught “tolerance” – A second look after the same-sex marriage ruling

It was just a little over two years ago that Jason Collins, a washed-up NBA player nearing the end of his career and looking for some cheap publicity, announced to the world in a Sports Illustrated interview that he was “a 34-year-old NBA center” who was “black” and “gay.” In the interview, as he tried to justify his sexually deviant lifestyle, he reflected on the “Christian” lessons he learned from his parents, particularly the teachings of Jesus Christ: I’m from a close-knit family. My parents instilled Christian values in me. They taught Sunday school, and I enjoyed lending a hand. I take the teachings of Jesus seriously, particularly the ones that touch on tolerance and understanding. (emphasis mine) Of course, I documented how wrong Mr. Collins was about the teachings of Christ, particularly when it came to how the Son of God doesn’t “tolerate” our sin and the choices we make. I invite you to check it out. So, why am I revisiting this story? Because I believe that in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Obergefell v. Hodges case, which fabricated a constitutional basis to legalize “marriage” between two people of the same gender, we will begin to […]

Gay Mafia snuffs out another enemy of the family

When Indiana passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act–a law protecting religious freedom–the Gay Mafia objected. As a result, the Republican cowards in the Hoosier State reversed themselves, granting special rights to the homosexual community and criminalizing Christians and other people of faith who choose to exercise their Constitutional right. The fallout from these extortion tactics have since led to other states caving to the homosexual mob, and have emboldened some pro-homosexual politicians at the state level–because every mob owns a politician or two–to call for Nazi-styled branding of businesses who choose to exercise their rights. Even the politicians working for them in Washington have joined the mob in calls for voiding the religious rights of those who object to the homosexual movement and the Gay Mafia. Interestingly enough, it has also led to a bizarro-world type of situation, where businesses are discriminating against Christians who are suffering the negative consequences of allegedly discriminating against homosexuals. Well, they have struck again, this time in Grimes, Iowa, where the owners of a Christian family run business is being forced to shut their doors after being charged with discrimination against a homosexual couple. Betty Odgaard and her husband, Richard, have been the owners […]

Obama’s military: Great for homosexuals but not Christians

For nearly two decades, the U.S. Army has provided an honor guard for the Independence Day celebration at Abilene Baptist Church in Augusta, GA, a church that predates the founding of America. Sadly, that tradition has been brought to an end. Officials at Fort Gordon have decided they will not send an honor guard to the July 5th services at the church because it would be a violation of military policy. In a lame attempt to justify the decision, Public Affairs Officer J.C. Mathews stated that officials at Fort Gordon and the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate reviewed the church’s request and determined that the event was “a religious service.” Here’s how he explained it: “While there are conditions under which the Army can participate in events conducted at a house of worship, we cannot participate in the context of a religious service.” Oh the horror! A religious service in a church? So I guess J.C. Mathews–interesting initials under the circumstances–is saying is that it’s OK for the Army to go to an event held at a church as long as you don’t pray, mention Jesus or read the Bible. For the record, this isn’t just any church. Abilene […]

Why it Matters that the United States Is (Supposed to Be) a Republic, not a Democracy

If you want to go to a Presbyterian church instead of a Baptist church, should the government be able to interfere with that choice? Even if, for some bizarre reason, 95 percent of the population doesn’t like Presbyterians? If you want to march up and down the sidewalk in front of City Hall with a […]

TSA and the Republican-led Congress: a picture of ineptitude

Over the past few months there have been several alarming reports about the Transportation Safety Administration–the word “safety” is apparently a relative word–more commonly referred to as the TSA. Some of the recent revelations in a Townhall.com story included: Documents detailing alleged sexual assaults by TSA agents at airports across the country. Thousands of missing TSA uniforms and security badges. Failure by the TSA to prevent potential terror attacks, detect explosives and other weapons in 96% of undercover tests. Failure to screen dozens of airport workers who ended up having ties to terrorism. Americans are outraged, and lawmakers claim to be angry about it too, but what is Congress actually doing about it? Well, if you’re a big spending, big government Democrat or RINO, you cry for more money because the $7 billion a year we are currently spending just isn’t quite enough to get the job done. And if you’re Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI)–chairman of the committee in charge of the TSA and candidate for re-election in 2016–there are three things you do. You go on national television to demonstrate your incredible stupidity by confirming the public perception that the TSA is nothing more than “security theater” because it […]
