Left-Wing Publications Quoting Bible Verses

I always find it fascinating when liberal or progressive individuals or organizations quote Bible verses to support causes or candidates or issues evangelical Christians oppose, or to make points evangelical Christians disagree with. The Bible has a lot of very different types of material in it, and it can be read in many different ways. If this were not true, we wouldn't have thousands of different Christian denominations and sects, but we do. This one, though? This one takes the cake---and e … [Read more...]

Republicans Fan the Flames of Big Government Regulations

By now you have probably heard that Texas health officials are moving to require that fetal remains be buried or cremated. Texas is following the lead of Indiana, which imposed a similar requirement last year.According to the Washington Post: Abortion providers generally use third-party special waste services to dispose of fetal remains. Previous rules [in Texas] allowed fetal remains, along with other medical tissue, to be ground up and discharged into a sewer system, incinerated, or handl … [Read more...]

The Mountain at the Foot of Donald Trump

A Guest Post by xCCCWhen Satan took Jesus up to the highest mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world and offered them in return for worship, let’s talk about what Jesus didn’t do. 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...]

Not Your Founding Fathers’ Electoral College

Today, the electoral college has become a subject of much discussion. And it's not surprising---for the first time in history, a presidential candidate has won the popular vote by nearly two million votes and yet lost the electoral college. We've had presidential candidates win the popular vote but lose the electoral college before, but never so dramatically. Conservatives have rushed to defend the electoral college---perhaps not surprising, given that their candidate won. Progressives, for … [Read more...]

My Evangelical Upbringing Had Ties to White Nationalism

Last week, NPR interviewed Richard Spencer, a "white nationalist" who wants to see the creation of a white ethno state. People were shocked at this interview---so shocked NPR had to explain why they aired it: Some of you have asked why we would air the views of someone who wants to create a “white ethno-state.” The short answer is that Donald Trump drew some of his support from people with such views. We want listeners to understand what the alt-right, and people such as Richard Spencer, beli … [Read more...]

This Isn’t New

There's been a lot of talk about an uptick in white supremacist graffiti, vandalism, and attacks in the days and weeks since Donald Trump's election. I've read about incidents that occurred in areas I've lived, and I've heard from friends who have experienced them first-hand. The stories about Hispanic children targeted and bullied in schools are some of the worst---and the Nazi graffiti is chilling. But I want to make sure something isn't lost in the shuffle---this isn't new. Oh, certainly, the … [Read more...]

Is Donald Trump Going to Deport Christian Homeschoolers?

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...]
