Today we’re off to Pike’s Peak Our grueling trek through the hellish depths of rest and relaxation continues. I don’t know how much more of God’s beautiful world, sufficient sleep, leisure to chat with old friends, and time to just read a book I can stand. Pray for me. [Read more...]

It takes a white leader to stand up and explain to my people about why our culture is superior. Now, if you are normal, you probably would detect just the teensiest whiff of racism in that statement. But if you are a Lefty and Howard Dean says, “It takes a white leader to stand up [Read More...]

Remember what I said about Gladiator games on pay per view? Consider this sort of stuff a dress rehearsal. Now, remember, all you champions of American culture as infinitely superior to the Catholic-Church-that-oppresses-women-and-holds-backward-views-of-the-place-of-woman-in-society: your TV is your god, your TV is your god, your TV is your god.

Colson on Gibson It is a happy side effect of the Culture War that an Evangelical can spring to the defense of a hard-core Catholic (perhaps more hardcore than the Pope) versus the bigots who manufacture American culture.
