Are You That Stupid Woman Who Thinks the Government Won't Let You Say "Merry Christmas"?

Are You That Stupid Woman Who Thinks the Government Won't Let You Say "Merry Christmas"?
This so-called “War on Christmas” is one of many contrived threats to America that has Christians circling the manger. I’m here to tell you that the only threat to Christmas is spoiled Eggnog. Donald Trump can put a thousand Christmas trees on his stage and a flashing “Merry Christmas” sign on his podium, but that... Read more »

When you're listening to AC/DC's "Who Made Who," do you ever wonder who made God?

When you're listening to AC/DC's "Who Made Who," do you ever wonder who made God?
Faith seems to require one of two things.  It requires either a lot of inward contemplation, or it requires no serious consideration whatsoever. It may be that lacking the capacity for any kind of serious consideration is the key to a strong faith, but that is an over simplification.  In truth, there are plenty of... Read more »

Christmas: A time for hatred, bigotry and intolerance?

Christmas: A time for hatred, bigotry and intolerance?
Christmas can be a time of peace and good tidings, but not always.  Not all greetings are ho-ho-ho.  The Christmas holiday may give some people too much free time. I was heading to the gym on Thursday-Christmas Eve-when someone swerved into my lane without signaling, causing me to jam on my brakes. This usually means... Read more »

Mike Huckabee is a greater danger to America than ISIS

Mike Huckabee is a greater danger to America than ISIS
Mike Huckabee kicked off his presidential campaign with a fiery speech filled with biblical references, including, “We will deal with jihadis just as we would deal with deadly snakes.” The snake thing is an interesting metaphor, but the real snake in the grass might be  Mike Huckabee.  At least with jihadis, know what you get. ...

Mike Huckabee is the new head of the American Taliban

Mike Huckabee is the new head of the American Taliban
Mike Huckabee, a man who wants to take the presidential oath, swearing on a bible to defend the Constitution has declared that he “will not acquiesce to an imperial court.”  He was referring, of course to the Supreme Court’s latest ruling that states can not deny marriage to anyone. I’m not entirely sure what Huckabee... Read more »

Same sex marriage and the queers in black robes - Part II

Same sex marriage and the queers in black robes - Part II
If you read my last piece on gay marriage , you may wonder why Part II here refers to it as same sex marriage.  I’m wondering the same thing myself. I don’t know if one is more acceptable or less politically incorrect than the other.  I’m not even sure I know the difference between Oriental... Read more »

Gay marriage and the queers in black robes

Gay marriage and the queers in black robes
Gay marriage was a hot topic at the Supreme Court last month with oral arguments presented by both sides.  If you’ve asked yourself why there are ANY sides to the idea of two people getting married, you may not be alone. Isn’t it enough that a couple has to hold their breath when the officiant... Read more »

Francis Cardinal George said that it was impossible for two homosexuals to consumate a marriage

Francis Cardinal George said that it was impossible for two homosexuals to consumate a marriage
Cardinal George’s sister, Margaret said that she was surprised that her brother went so quickly.  She said that he, himself thought that he would last longer. Apparently, that wasn’t God’s plan. As civilized folk, we’re loathe to speak ill of the dead.  Instead, we lionize, deify and extoll them. If I’m being pressed for the... Read more »

Religious freedom, voter fraud and the destruction of the American family

Religious freedom, voter fraud and the destruction of the American family
If I was Andy Rooney-I’d be dead.  But if I were him when he was still alive, I  might ask, “Did you ever notice how much time certain people spend fixing problems that don’t exist?” Voter fraud in national elections is virtually non-existent.  It either doesn’t exist or it is so meaningless that it should...

NBC's Today show proves that prayer really works
With Passover and Easter barreling down on us, NBC’s Today show is running daily segments under the header, “Do you believe?”  This is not going to be a survey, so, for the purpose of this piece we are going to treat that particular question as if it were rhetorical. On Monday, segment host, Jenna Bush... Read more »
