Why I’m Voting for Marco Rubio in Georgia

Tomorrow is the first time in my adult life that my primary vote will actually mean something.Having lived in Ohio for nearly four decades prior to moving to Georgia, the primary season was always all but over by the time the vote got to Ohio (which only moved up in the primary schedule this year).This year I will cast a vote to help decide the nominee for the Republican party.And I choose Marco Rubio.The truth is that I could flip a coin to choose between Ted Cruz and Marco … [Read more...]

Chik-fil-A Banned from Nebraska College Campus

If you give the Left a chicken sandwich....The University of Nebraska Kearney has gained media attention after reversing a vote of the student body and banning Chik-fil-A from campus.The controversy originated last January when students were polled to decide a new dining option for the student union. The students could choose from a list of fast food providers. The majority, 722 of 1,222 respondents, chose Chick-fil-A as their top restaurant choice over A&W, Johnny Rockets, Panda … [Read more...]

John Kasich Delivers Blow to Religious Liberty

In what was one of the most disturbing moments of last night's GOP debate in Houston, John Kasich declared war on religious liberty.He ridiculed those who refuse to endorse behavior they believe to be sinful.The same guy who said he would lock private business owners (Apple) in a room with the FBI until they agreed to give access to their phones, said Christians should just accept the travesty of Obergefell and accept the abolition of marriage.I presume he believes the same about Roe … [Read more...]

Because we don't welcome refugees from Syria into America with open arms when we know ISIS is using them as cover to infiltrate Western nations and kill us.ISIS is creating a crisis -- made worse by our own fecklessness -- and then leveraging it to their advantage.And we are being pressured to let them get away with it by our "compassionate" leaders who lack the courage to act in the face of evil.It is easier to bully us than to bully Islamic … [Read more...]

ISIS Needs the Gospel — and a Good Bombing

The safe thing for Christians to say in response to the ISIS attacks in Paris (not to mention the Beirut massacre and the downing of the Russian airliner) is that we need to love everyone -- the victims, their families, and the misguided souls who comprise ISIS.And who can argue with that? Saying we should love everyone is the equivalent of wearing pink to support breast cancer research -- it's the fundraiser no one can take issue with (which may explain why we see it … [Read more...]
