Losing Patience with Frank Schaeffer

It’s hard living in the shadow of a famous father. Some sons have done well (John Quincy Adams), while other sons have done very badly (Joe DiMaggio, Jr.). Hank Williams, Jr. was typecast as a “Hank Williams clone” of his famous father.

Alleged Muslim Terrorists Presumed Guilty

One of the arguments being used to justify bringing the 9/11 terrorists to New York City to be tried is to show the Muslim world how just our courts are. The Muslim world will see how we treat people accused of crimes and thereby Muslim radicals won’t want to kill us anymore. In a rational […]

Avoiding Doomsday Hype and Hysteria

The doomsday film 2012 had a mega-weekend at the box office. It took in $225 million over a period of five days, a combination of $65 million domestically and $160 million internationally Wednesday through Sunday (Nov. 11-16, 2009). In anticipation of the hype and hysteria of the Mayan Calendar end-of-the-world scenario, Christians had their books ready for an answer.

Jane Fonda, Stalin, Hitler, and Ceausescu

Jane Fonda has had a varied and somewhat controversial career. She was photographed seated on an anti-aircraft battery in North Vietnam in 1972. Since then she has been known as “Hanoi Jane.” She’s had a successful acting career (two Academy Awards), turned out a series of fitness videos from 1982 through 1995, married media mogul Ted Turner, is working on her fourth marriage to a younger man (he’s 67, she’s 71), and continues to say and do stupid things. Although claiming to be a Christian, Fonda is an outspoken advocate of abortion rights. On March 29, 2005, Planned Parenthood honored Fonda with the Margaret Sanger Award, named for the organization’s pro-abortion and eugenicist founder.

Pre-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Baloney

I grew up in the Vietnam era where the draft was still operating and deferments were easy to get. Colleges were filled with young men who attended for no other reason than to avoid the draft. Then the draft lottery was instituted in 1969. The days of the year, represented by the numbers from 1 […]

Never Give Up. Never Surrender.

4 Sheets of Parchment v. 2032 Pages of Government Control

Will America Follow England into Oblivion?

The British government is in the process of deChristianizing this once Christian nation. While they are doing this, they are opening the door to Muslim extremists in the name of religious tolerance. By capitulating to the homosexual lobby and undermining the Christian foundation of England, in time Islam will gain the ascendancy and will wipe […]

Tearing a Page from the Bible

Ian McKellen of Lord of the Rings (Gandalf) and X-Men (Magneto) fame is an admitted homosexual. He is in the habit of tearing out the Bible passage that condemns homosexuality, specifically Leviticus 18:22 which reads, “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.” He does this […]

Predicting Obama in 1983

I used to love to read Popular Mechanics magazine and the stories that were published about what the future will be like. The article “Miracles You’ll See in the Next 50 Years,” published February 1950, showed a picture of a woman hosing off her sofa that carried this caption: “Because everything in her home is waterproof, the housewife of 2000 can do her daily cleaning with a hose.” My wife is still waiting for that one to come true.

It’s Not Daylight Savings Time

Each and every year we spring forward moving our clocks ahead an hour in the Spring and fall back moving our clocks back and hour in the Fall. Not every state complies with these yearly rituals. There was a time when Daylight Saving Time was not observed in most of the Eastern Time Zone portion […]
