Left Wing Writer Wants to Limit Freedom of Speech

freedom-of-speech

Those of us who observe and criticize ideologies of all kinds observe that ideologues invariably fall into the most wild of hypocrisies. So the left wing–who have always been advocates of free speech–defenders of protesters, defenders of pornography, defenders of attacks on Christianity, defenders of attacks on the family–all in the name of freedom of [Read More...]

Is Religious Enquiry Reasonable?

faith-and-reason

Benjamin Franklin wrote, “The way to see by faith is to close the eye of reason.” What a shallow lie that is, but it is understandable given his deistic, rationalism. The idea that faith and reason are incompatible is a commonplace among both rationalists and religionists. Very often along with a highly subjective and emotional [Read More...]

Resurrection or Re-Incarnation?

empty tomb

Christians believe in the resurrection of the body. This means that in some sort of way, at the last day, we will have a ‘resurrection body’. What does this mean and how can this be? Is God going to gather up every last particle of me and put me back together again? What about the [Read More...]

If You Died Tonight Are You 100% Sure….

preacher

…you’d go to heaven? That is the question Evangelicals love to ask people. It’s one of religion’s easiest sells and the conversation goes like this: “If you died tonight do you know if you would go to heaven?” The majority of people would shrug and say, “Not sure.” The Evangelical says, “Would you like to [Read More...]

Are Catholics Just as Divided as Anglicans?

Decaying Church

A comment on the recent announcement that global Evangelical Anglicans are starting up their own “parallel church” has brought the observation that “Catholics are just as divided as Anglicans although they have maintained authoritarian “unity”.

Hillary Nixon

More and more Americans are beginning to connect the dots and realize that the corruption and sleaze of the Clinton clan makes Richard Nixon look squeaky clean.

The Underdog Myth that Hillary Has to Overcome

hillary and marco

When I was living in England I remember how the English hated George Bush Jr. The mocked him for seeming like a small town hick. What they didn’t understand was that George Bush Jr’s move to Texas to live on a ranch and marry the town librarian was the smartest political move he could have made. Bush [Read More...]

Hillary’s Truth Problem

Hilary Pilate

What I find amazing is that Hillary Clinton is able to acknowledge openly that she has not only used her personal server for State Department business (thus circumventing all record keeping) but that in the face of requests for the emails necessary for Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation she admits that she deleted them. Doesn’t anybody [Read More...]

Of the Resurrection of the Body, Cannibals, Crocodiles and Corpses

English Papers Are Best for US Election News

The American papers are propaganda outlets. You won’t get hard hitting, investigative reporting from American news outlets.
