Constantine not Benedict?

Constantine wanted a strong, united Roman Empire and at that time as did every  other civilized human being. My ancestors were painting themselves blue and sweeping across Britannia in waves destroying most of the good things of life that the Romans had built over centuries. The world was better off when Emperor and prelates struck [Read More...]

VE Day: Thank You

Men like my Uncle were heroes, but they did not brag about it. They stormed Normandy, jumped out of planes a bridge too far, served in POW camps, and then prepared to ship to the Pacific. Sometimes the same man did all of those things in the same War. Because of these men and millions [Read More...]

Grace Lee: She Taught Me To See

Grace Lee Whitney, actor and Star Trek star, is dead. She was eighty-five . . . older than my Mom and older than my Dad. I did not know her, but I hear she had a hard life. The ugly side of the industry that breaks the laws of God in order to commoditize sex [Read More...]

Why One Should Never Compare Anyone to the Nazi Party

A lot of people get called “Nazis,” but very few of us know what the insult means.

On Hating IS and Loving People

I hate IS (the Islamic State): a true perversion of Islam, monotheism, and humanity. I hate everything for which IS stands: terror, rapine, and violence. I hate it with a holy hatred because God hates IS. I love and pray for mercy toward the people who are part of IS because the eternal God loves [Read More...]

Let Goods and Kindred Go

Here is an obvious truth of the Christian faith: you cannot serve money and God. Money is a tool for humanity, but a particularly tricky one to use. Few get a hammer and then become so enamored with hammers that they collect more than they will ever need to pound nails. Money is entrancing because [Read More...]

Stuck in Montgomery: a Tale of Joy

There is the problem of evil, but counterbalancing the petty evils are the unexpected joys of life. Sherlock Holmes saw hope for Providence in the flowers, I found it today in the Montgomery Airport If you do not know Montgomery, Alabama,  and Faulkner University, you should. Faulkner University is a soul sister to HBU in [Read More...]

Hallelujah! This is Not A Christmas Post

I have seen the future and it is good. I can be jolly even though this is not Christmas. In fact, it is about as not Christmas as it can be. The Holiday is far enough in the past that we have ceased to think about it, but not close at all. In fact, thinking [Read More...]
