One of my all-time favorite HBO series is ROME, starring Kevin McKidd and Ray Stevenson. Borrowing on a theme similar to Forrest Gump, the series follows the journey of two men in Julius Caesar’s Roman legion who seem to find themselves making history…Continue

I'm sorry I have been harping on things folks don't want to hear lately, but I think it my duty to say what I think is the truth. I applaud the determination some show, but it's really long past time to recognize some fundamental truths. Even if the United States could be saved, which it can't, conservatives need to get this idea that the United States is somehow sacred out of their heads. It's very near blasphemy, and beyond that, it's a self destructive…Continue
Popular culture has made murder, rape, mayhem, hatred, and violence "cool"

The recent massacre at an elementary school in Connecticut (the ironically named Sandy Hook - it’s been a bad year for anything named Sandy) has, predictably, brought a chorus of calls for gun control and to double down on Progressive social reform schemes.
It appears no tragedy, no matter how horrendous, is to be allowed to “go to waste” as Rahm Emmanuel would say.…

More than you might think and for entirely different reasons than you might think.
Have I gone MAD?
Maybe but…Allow me to connect a few unlikely dots and then you can be the judge.
Hang on, this might be a little tricky.

Will you vote against Obama’s war on The Soul of America and its religious freedom Tuesday, November 6th? In President Barack Obama's first term he took advantage of the 340,000 social conservative who did not show up at the polls in 2008’s presidential election. Armed with this free…Continue

It doesn’t take long to hear outcries for “separation of church and state” when any mention of God is uttered or displayed on public property. In response, there is an outcry from the other side for “freedom of religion.” I wonder how many people to realize that both sides of this argument lean upon the same Constitutional foundation? It is the first amendment that guarantees both “separation” and “free exercise” with regard to religion. It stands to reason then that a proper…Continue

Well…Sort of common theme.
Let’s say that the title of the theme was the same and leave it at that since that is where similarities ended.
That theme was…”The American Dream.”
Both parties talked about it. Both said they were for…Continue

While we listened to a song on the radio, my younger sister, the “kid” still in her fifties, asked me this week if I ever imagined myself actually being sixty four when the Beatles released “When I’m Sixty Four” in 1967. This November I will actually turn sixty-four and as I was all of about 19 when I first heard the song, the answer to the question she asked is “no, I could not then imagine being sixty…Continue

You’re upset over the inclusion of the Ground Zero Cross in the Memorial Museum. You’re suing over it.
Well, too bad.

Many states are pushing forward legislation to remove restrictions on the use of government funding for religious based activities or institutions. The argument in favor of such legislation claims preventing or restricting government money to religious organizations is an expression of religious bigotry and discrimination. That argument is a dangerous falsehood. Florida currently has this issue on their November ballot. Florida’s Amendment 8, titled “Religious Freedom”, is a misnomer to…Continue
Freedom from Religion found at http://ffrf.org/ interestingly uses “We the People” graphics the Tea Party uses to entice people into believing that separation of church and state means something more than what the Founders intended. Here’s my view on Freedom from Religion and its danger to America.
What I realized was quite stunning. According to…Continue

“Can we legislate morality?” This is a very relevant question that deserves a serious answer. But what is really meant by this question? The idea of “legislating morality” often gives people the impression that we can create a moral society through the creation of laws. Fact is - we cannot. As a prosecutor I became acutely aware of the apparently widely held view that the criminal justice system will “reform” people. We could save ourselves a lot of heartache and a lot…Continue

“George Stephanopoulos kept hounding Romney on contraception. It had not come up, nobody had said anything about it, and we were all confused, as was Romney, what the deal was. Well, it is Dick Morris' theorem that that was a setup that led to what happened last week…”

An understanding of history is the only thing that can illuminate our understanding of religious liberty. Our ignorance of history (not to mention a dangerous level of apathy) is allowing a tyrant to erode the liberty that people of faith have enjoyed for over two centuries. We believe that we have moved beyond the days of kings and serfs, yet here we are, repeating the very history our forefathers attempted to prevent us from repeating. It is exactly the same show that was played out…Continue
Glenn Beck had an interesting and powerful discussion on GBTV yesterday ( Monday 1-30-12 ).
Guests included Catholic League president Bill Donohue, Rabbi Daniel Lapin of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians, and Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Texas. A Catholic, a Protestant, a Mormon and a Jew, now all standing together against the growing and…Continue
THESE are words to celebrate the joy of being American as we remember that, 235 years ago, The Republic of the United States of America was created the 4th of July 1776.
Receiving a magnificent country as America is a precious gift and a privilege that no American should take for…
It’s shocking how many problems we as a nation have in our absolute “ignorance” believing that the world is as us. How many times must we be shown that our concepts of culture, our governance, and even our foundation of Christian belief are not the norms of the world?
Is there not a more interesting example than our absolute inability to understand and deal with the dementia of islamism? Who in the culture of our nation could even be enticed into the…Continue
