OJ was Guilty: Let’s not Repeat the Mistakes that Set Him Free

OJ Simpson and his murders are back in the media. I recently reviewed the worthwhile miniseries for World Magazine and as part of my preparation read The Run of His Life by Jeffery Toobin and How I Helped OJ Get Away with Murder by Mike Gilbert. If read it, you will not acquit. I was [Read More...]

A Wee Little Man

When I was a little boy, the only thing I knew about this man was that he was small. Later I realized that he was a tax collector and nobody has to tell someone from West Virginia the government is bad and the tax collectors are the worst of the worst. Later when I was [Read More...]

Caught by Jesus

The greatest manhunt in history ended in failure when the Romans and the Jewish leaders could not find the body of Jesus. The greatest manhunt in my history was when Jesus used best reason and experience to bring me to Himself. I grew up in the Church. I had a great childhood with parents who [Read More...]

LinLin the Dog: When Love Goes Awry

Walking down the hallway of a hotel, I saw a terrifying sight: a painting of LinLin the Dog. LinLin must have lived no later than 1907 given the date of the building, the virtues that made his owner paint him are forgotten, but ugly is forever. LinLin has become an object of terror. LinLin lives [Read More...]

Tyranny Demands Mediocrity

Mao recognized that the Chinese Communist Party was making huge blunders because it was closed off from criticism. As a result, he invited criticism. People were hesitant to talk to the government for good reason. Thousands had already died for daring to speak their minds. Finally, the people began, ever so cautiously to speak up. [Read More...]

Evidence is Extraordinary

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. This is a true as far as it goes, except extraordinary things happen all the time. It is extraordinary (in one sense of the term) that you are reading something I am writing. What are the odds? The moment one asks for the definition of terms like “extraordinary” and “evidence,” [Read More...]

Vision with Integrity: What We Need in Education

I have known leaders with vision, but without integrity. This is Gary Hart: a man of genius who ends up alone. I have known leaders with integrity, but no vision. This is George HW Bush: a man of rectitude who did not know what to do with power. I have known a few leaders with [Read More...]

Proud to Have Learned Some New York Values

At heart, though I was born in Illinois, and spent only seven years there, I will always be a West Virginian. After hundreds of years of ancestors living and dying in western Virginia, I called it home decades after I had lived longer in New York or California.

Love and Loyalty: Intense Romance

Today I saw the marriage between two people who know the meaning of community: loving people. Every law, rule, and idea is in service to God, the ultimate person, and then to His children, humankind. Loving friendships between people are fundamental to all the good that we do. There is only one relationship where making [Read More...]

My Experience of God

What should we say or do when we are pressed for reasons to believe? Orthodox apologetics is not about winning arguments, but saving our minds from deception. The battle is primarily spiritual, but does include an intellectual component. Arguments supporting the existence of God are rarely why we believe in God, but reassurance that our [Read More...]
