Humility: the forgotten Christian value this Election Year

The United States needs some humility, but God help us if we don’t find it by God’s grace. Humility will come to any people because God loves us, but there is a pleasant way to learn a lesson and a less pleasant way. God help us to find the pleasant way: humbling ourselves before Almighty [Read More…]

Trumpism: How am I responsible?

A person I respect challenged me the other day over “Trumpism.” Why have so many people in my party gotten things so wrong? Why have so many religious people been attracted to Trumpism? Maybe people like I am have been doing it wrong. Where is the rot present in my own life?  It is easy [Read More…]

The Exposure of Racism in the Mainstream

Write about race and there is nothing right to say. You cannot gain virtue by writing. All you can do is witness to the truth. We continue to have a problem with race in America. Forget for a moment how to solve the problem. Personally, I find most of the solutions proposed on the “left” [Read More…]

God save the Republic from Demagogues and Rioters

My social media is suddenly full of white nationalists crowing over a coming race war.Why? Facing protests, Donald J. Trump with a history of racial problems, has had to cancel a speech in Chicago. Protesters and Trump supporters began to fight on the floor of the hall. Video from the event shows both sides engaging [Read More…]

Miami Heat: The Republican Debate

This is the weekend before the Tuesday that will determine if there will be a “brokered” convention. Let’s be simple: If Trump wins Ohio and Florida, he will be the nominee. I will not vote for him and the Party will split. If Trump wins Ohio or Florida, he might be the nominee, but he [Read More…]

If Trump fans are right, we should not vote for Trump: We Do Not Know Donald Trump

Talking to people who love Donald J. Trump is helpful. Leave out the Twitter-bot White nationalists (please!) and the crazy sycophants all candidates have who are not John Kasich. Talk to regular Republicans. My unscientific sample of Trump friends has them arguing three things about Donald J. Trump. First, they think Trump is an “outsider” [Read More…]

Tuesday Night at the Election: Live Blog

Here we go . . . again. Together we will watch the returns to answer three questions: Does strategic voting continue? If so, this will be a rough night for Marco Rubio. Can Trump break 40% in two states he should carry easily? Or was Louisiana a foretaste of glory infernal for the businessman? Does [Read More…]

So Help Me God: Not Donald Trump

It happened twice. The speaker asked the people gathered to raise their right hand and swear an oath: I do solemnly swear that I, no matter how I feel, no matter what the conditions, if there are hurricanes or whatever, will vote on or before the 12th for Donald J. Trump for President.” No Christian [Read More…]

Nancy: the Strength of Subordination

Nancy Reagan is dead. She is not the last of her era, George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush remain with a few other senior hands, but the Party she knew is dead. Bob Dole was complaining on the news that he was a conservative, but that Kansas had become extreme. Whatever was good or bad [Read More…]

Sometimes We Are All Chockers: Peter, Lincoln, and The Rest of Us

This is not really about politics. The other day Donald Trump said that “Little Marco” was a “chocker.” By this he meant choker, and Trump said, “a choker is always a choker.” Fortunately for the Donald after his loss in Iowa (big time chocking), this is not true. Scott Norwood missed a game winning field [Read More…]
