I’ve been not publishing a number of comments these past few days, as they violate the little rule I keep here at the blog. It’s a simple rule based on a passage from St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians,
No foul language should come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for needed edification, that it may impart grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, with which you were sealed for the day of redemption. All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling must be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.

I will admit to you that I signed the petition immediately. [Read more...]
Perhaps the doomed, quixotic, movement to confront tyranny, and help Hobby Lobby this coming Saturday, isn’t so doomed after all. The politician, public speaker, commentator, and Baptist pastor, just posted this message on his Facebook wall. [Read more...]
It’s time for some more bubbly. Were the courts in session yesterday, or what? Though I was on vacation, see, the answer to that question is “yes,” even if they got down to business quick, and closed down early for New Years Eve. First, we heard of Kort & Luitjohan’s good news, then an injunction handed to Tom Monaghan’s company, and now there’s another reason for a toast.
Perhaps the Administration will scuttle this ridiculous rule out of embarrassment alone. I mean, the phony war on women trope worked well enough to secure reelection, but in reality, it isn’t holding up. Perhaps a miracle, much like the pending deal on the fiscal cliff, is imminent.
Here are the details from the Thomas More Law Center, [Read more...]
