One of the untold stories of Western Civilization… …is the curious way in which England raffled off its Christian literary heritage to… Wheaton College!

I think I’ll go all Fox News on Amy She’s stolen two good ideas before I had time to get around to blogging them myself. Therefore her right to free speech must be crushed underfoot like a young scorpion by a hypersensitive person who can’t stand it when others are more clever than he. I’m [Read More...]

The Massive Gay Offensive Continues As a reader said, you’d think half the country was gay judging from the massive news coverage being given all things gay.

Proof that Conservatives Can Also Be Thin-Skinned Despots Bent on Crushing Free Speech I spat upon Clintonoid efforts to use legal connivances to shut down Limbaugh and I spit on this bit of connivance from FoxNews too. It’s satire. It’s a free country. Get over it, O’Reilly and Co. [Read more...]

Professional Handwringers at ADL See Passion, Don’t Like It Well, what did you expect? The ADL’s function is to see anti-semitism everywhere. Otherwise, what’s the point of their existence as an organization? Sensible Jews often roll their eyes at their alarums. [Read more...]

World Wide Rant is puzzled… …about why people whose faith is not based on the holiness of bishops, but on the person and promises of Jesus Christ don’t act more like people whose faith is based on the holiness of bishops.

Speaking of which, Mars is closer now than it has been for 60,000 years But, just to kill your enthusiasm, I should also point out that it all ends in the cold and the dark. Some atheists do the bold Promethean gig in the face of that since they’ve put all their eggs in the [Read More...]

The Perseid Shower is coming our way! I love stargazing and I especially love meteor showers. It reminds me of how amazingly sheltered this fragile little world is. Our Father takes good care of us. There’s something astounding about this little park we’ve been placed in amid a universe of unthinkable forces, any one of [Read More...]
