Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, y’all. See ya next year!

Jesus wept

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the story in John 11:1-44: Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when He heard that [Lazarus] was sick…He said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.” …Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that […]

Is it alive, dead or an inanimate object?

Wow, just got this video from Ash123. Ilana Goldman, president of Women’s Campaign Forum (WCF), is a major proponent of forcing taxpayers to fund abortion, but she is unwilling to answer the simple question of whether the fetus is living, dead or an inanimate object–not from a moral perspective, but from a purely scientific perspective. […]

Problem with comment form

Filed under Blogging

The comment form has apparently not been saving information. I’ve also had problems with the admin page not remembering my login details. I searched the WordPress forums, and I think I found the solution. Unfortunately, it means that everyone’s cookies will now be expired and you’ll have to enter your information again. Hopefully this time […]

Shhhh! Don’t say the “C” word!

Here’s the first story I’ve seen this season: For as long as anyone can remember, Christmas trees adorned with lights and ornaments have greeted holiday season visitors to UNC Chapel Hill’s two main libraries.

Walter E. Williams puts forth a good argument in his latest article: Imagine there’s an elderly widow down the street from you. She has neither the strength to mow her lawn nor enough money to hire someone to do it. Here’s my question to you, and I’m almost afraid for the answer: Would you support […]

Socialized healthcare is not without its problems

Filed under Politics

I’m no expert on healthcare systems, but I think we better look before we leap. I believe the problems in our own system are fixable, and I’m afraid many people are unaware of the problems of other types of systems. Take Japan, for example. It seems like almost every month I hear a new story […]

Mourning the death of the American idea

I’ve been really busy lately with work and probably will be for the next several days, so my posts will be few and far between. I did, however, want to share this article by Mark Steyn. I disagree with my fellow conservatives who think the Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Frank liberal behemoth will so obviously screw up that they’ll […]

Praying for Obama

HT: Kansas Bob Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson publishing, encourages Christians to make these four commitments to our new president: I will pray for him and our country. I will assume his motives are good, giving him the benefit of the doubt. I will not speak ill of him, even if I don’t always […]
