Unfair and Unbalanced..

If Fox News, self-purported to be “fair and balanced” while not being either fair or balanced, didn’t have such a large viewership/readership, I’d give their journalistic efforts no credibility and lump them in with World Net Daily and the other nutty news sources infesting the internet and radio waves.  However, they do have viewers, listeners, and readers, which means there is an unfortunately large number of Americans who believe this network actually produces real news  and … [Read more...]

2_22_450_todd

Fox News columnist Todd Starnes is at it again. Determined to see an anti-Christian bias in the military where none exists, he published this in a post from July 8th, 2013: There is a clear and present danger to religious liberty within the military, says a coalition of groups who believe the Obama Administration is pushing a secular, anti-religious culture on the nation's armed forces."Christians who choose to live out their faith find themselves incompatible with the secular view of … [Read more...]

Navy veteran sacrificed his life to save another in Aurora

The Associated Press just put out a blast profiling many of the victims of Friday's massacre in Aurora, CO. One of the first things I noticed in the initial reporting was that two Air Force personnel were accounted for, but one Navy service member was still missing. I kept hoping for this to be clarified as a misunderstanding. As the commotion died down, such a statement did not come. Reports started trickling in of Navy veteran Jonathan Blunk's death by Saturday. From the AP: AURORA, … [Read more...]

Follow up to Apostolic Truth Tabernacle

Interesting developments... I attempted to contact Apostolic Truth Tabernacle and their pastor Reverend Jeff Sangl to no avail today. I called but the voicemail was full.

It does not excuse acts of the past however and in an attempt to reach out I have created a video asking Rev. Sangl to answer some questions for … [Read more...]

Support for gay veteran with PTSD who had ‘lifestyle of sin’ diagnosis

I'd just like to say thank you to all the people who signed the petition in support of Esther Garatie. In just two days, it went from 6,000 signatures to around 12,000 signatures - each one generating real email traffic to government officials. Quick recap Esther Garatie went to the Dallas VA Hospital with severe depression, and even mentioned suicidal thoughts. She was injured in the line of duty while deployed. Her injuries were severe enough to force a medical separation. She also … [Read more...]
