Why Susan Pevensie Has Defenders

Like every other good evangelical child, I grew up reading the Chronicles of Narnia, by C. S. Lewis. I was so fascinated with the books that my siblings and I made green and yellow rings and used them to travel through the pools in the wood between the worlds and explore imaginary worlds.

He didn’t decide that He wanted to rule the kingdoms of the world in order to force His will on everyone. He didn’t desire political power in order to establish the Kingdom of God on earth. He didn’t bow to His human desires for power, prestige, efficiency or comfort. He basically told Satan to fuck off. … [Read more...]

Kris Kobach, Kansas' secretary of state, is widely known to be working with Trump to develop a plan for registering Muslims from "high-risk areas" of the globe. An Associated Press photographer captured a high-resolution photo of Trump and Kobach, who was holding a binder and a stack of papers in his left hand that appears to be his “strategic plan for [the] first 365 days” of his run atop DHS, should Trump tap him to lead the agency.The first section of the partially obscured document highl … [Read more...]
