Hail to Pope Francis for Attacking Us Global Warmers

Pope Francis issued his first encyclical today.  Papal encyclicals are letters issued by the Roman Catholic pope to the Church's leadership, especially the bishops, but sometimes restricted only to the bishops of a particular nation or diocese. This ambitious encyclical, entitled Laudato Si, meaning "Praise Be To You," is a 184-page tome calling on the world to reduce what Pope Francis regards mostly as human-induced global warming.Like many non-Catholic Christians, I have serious … [Read more...]

Christian-filled Golden State Wins!

I"m an NBA fan. Tuesday night, Golden State won the 2015 NBA Finals and thus the Championship, defeating the NBA sensation Lebron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers. There are some interesting stories about this NBA Finals and these two teams.Lebron James had started his NBA career at Cleveland, Ohio, located up the road from his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The Cavaliers went to the NBA finals once in James seven years there. But the 6', 8", 280 pound guard who can ply multiple positions then … [Read more...]

Pope Francis Will Sign a Treaty with the Palestinian State

YES! Pope Francis, on behalf of the Vatican, is going to sign a treaty with the Palestinian State, that is, the Palestinian Authority, thus verifying the existence of a Palestinina state and further endorsing it.Wake up United States of America, which is against this! Smell the roses. My country's government has always been on the wrong side of history regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. What do I mean?Although the U.S. has always been Israel's chief ally, which I fully endorse … [Read more...]

Two Jihadist Muslims from Phoenix Are Dead

I live in metro-Phoenix, USA. The two young Muslim men who were shot and killed in Garland, Texas, Sunday evening were from Phoenix. They shared an apartment here. Texans are known for protecting their liberty and independence. I know; I lived in metro-Houston for nearly 40 years. But I think hosting such an exhibit was foolish and just invited trouble. And it caused two even more foolish men to forfeit their lives.Nadir Sooti (34) and Elton Simpson (30) drove a car into theMuhammed Art … [Read more...]

The Death Penalty for Intentional Homicide is Right

Pope Francis is being hailed widely as a breath of fresh air for the Roman Catholic Church. There are a lot of things I like about him. But his view of capital punishment for intentional homicide is not one of them. He calls for the end of it. Many Christians agree. The European Union has outlawed it. European lawmakers want to inflict harm on the U.S. and many of its state governments for their laws about first degree murder that require the death penalty. I think anyone who professes to be a … [Read more...]

Joe Klein Has It Right About Israel

Joe Klein is a Jewish, American, political journalist who has his own column in Time magazine. I like to read him. His column in Time magazine, March 30, 2015, is entitled "Disgrace in Victory." It is about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu winning the Israel election last week in a disgraceful manner. I blogged about it last week.I didn't mention in the blog post that Netanyahu used a scare tactic by saying Israeli Arabs were voting in droves like never before. Well, they had always … [Read more...]

Netanyahu Wins and Israel Loses

Israel held elections Tuesday, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won his fourth term in a surprising, last-minute turn of events. Friday polls showed that Hertzog and his Zionist Union party were leading among voters and therefore poised to win an upset victory. But the crafty Netanyahu stooped to low-down politics in the last hours of the campaign by announcing that there would be no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during his watch if he remained prime minister. This … [Read more...]

Is the USA a Christian Nation?

That depends on who you ask. How you define what a Christian nation is? How are you going to get people on the same page with that one? You aren't. Definitions will be all over the map!Last Tuesday, Idaho state Senator Sheryl Nuxoll and two other fellow Republican senators refused to attend an Idaho Senate session because Hindu cleric Rajan Zed of Reno, Nevada, opened it with a Hindu prayer. Senator Nuxoll defended their absence by saying the U.S. "is a Christian nation based on Christian … [Read more...]
