At what point do we raise the alarms about the mental stability of the man currently sitting in the Oval Office? At what point will officials in the position to do something stop thinking about politics and start demanding checks on the occupant of the highest seat of power in the nation? My fear is that will come only after we’ve reached or even breached some critical red line of national import. What we know about Donald Trump, after nearly... Read more

Matthew 24:4-5 (AMP) – 4 Jesus answered, “Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error]. 5 For many will come in My name [misusing it, and appropriating the strength of the name which belongs to Me], saying, ‘I am the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed),’ and they will mislead many. Mislead many. I don’t like to automatically ascribe doomsday scenarios to every ludicrous, stupid thing said by politicians – especially not the current reprobate-in-chief – but given the fervent cult-vibe of Trumpism, Wednesday’s... Read more

Where are the strong Christian voices, standing on what is biblically right, rather than politically expedient? That’s a question the church in the United States needs to be asking herself. When did our witness to the world become secondary to political gain? This is a theme that I’ve visited often in my work. Anyone who has read my writing for any length of time can affirm this. I hit on this because it is simply that important, and I didn’t... Read more

His name was Otto Warmbier. I feel the need to keep putting this out there. In fact, it currently serves as my Twitter handle. Otto Warmbier isn’t the focus of this particular piece, however. I mention him only as a reminder of just one of the brutal atrocities that can be attributed to North Korea. I would also remind my readers – particularly any Trump-supporting Christians – that our president is still carrying on a passionate love affair with the... Read more

The wheels of justice often move slow, but they DO move. On Saturday, it appears New York stepped in to clean up the miscarriage of justice carried out in Florida over a decade ago. Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire pal to Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and attorney Alan Dershowitz (to name just a few), got a sweetheart deal in Florida from then-U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta (currently serving as Trump’s Labor Secretary). Even as evidence of multiple accounts of sexual molestation and exploitation... Read more

Three cheers for Justin Amash! Amash chose today, Independence Day, to make another bold stand for principle – something woefully lacking in current day politics. In an op-ed with the Washington Post, the Michigan congressman announced he was leaving the party of Trump. “Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party,” Amash wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Thursday morning. “No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that... Read more

Art of the deal? I remember when then-President Barack Obama made the horrendous deal with Iran near the end of his presidency. He would hand over pallets of cash to the regime, in return for what amounted to nothing – curtailed nuclear ambitions, and guidelines that basically allowed for them to police themselves. Right wing pundits and politicians howled in disbelief and disgust! I know they did this because I did the same thing. How could we trust Iran? Are... Read more

Once again, I find myself steeped in embarrassment, as I explain that I am an alumna of Liberty University. It’s not that it wasn’t a great school. It was. I enjoyed my fellow students, as well as the professors. The education I received there was top notch. That being said, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr is a disgrace. He has shamed the name of his father, deceased televangelist and Liberty founder, Jerry Falwell, as well as the reputation of... Read more

He’s got a point. George Conway, attorney, frequent Trump critic, and husband of Trump counselor, Kellyanne Conway, is calling out the president in another op-ed with The Washington Post. Conway isn’t just calling out the president, however. He’s also calling out the hypocrisy of a GOP establishment that has become far too accustomed to turning a blind eye to things done by Trump that they would never let fly with a Democrat. So let’s talk about sexual assault. Last week,... Read more

I recently wrote a piece for The Bulwark titled “How Franklin Graham Is Perverting His Father’s Legacy.” The column focused on Graham’s call to deem June 2, 2019 as a day of prayer for President Donald Trump. More specifically, it focused on how Graham has taken the good will earned through his father, the late evangelist Billy Graham’s work, and is using it to ingratiate himself with the Trump administration. Reverend Graham, in his long and storied ministry, did not... Read more
