It Helps To Read The Bible Before You Write About What’s In The Bible

It Helps To Read The Bible Before You Write About What’s In The Bible

I’d like to offer Robert Wright of the New York Times a little helpful advice. Robert, when you want to appear smart by offering one of those little quizzes wherein the deluded masses believe the answer is one thing but you, by dint of your superior intellect, know the real answer, you should make every […]

I’m not prepared to call this Jake Tapper piece journalism. It reads like a tiny bit of uninspired propaganda, like Tapper felt obliged to write the post and swing a stick desultorily on the President’s behalf. A new poll from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life indicates that the number of Americans who erroneously […]

Nancy Pelosi, Over the Edge.

Nancy Pelosi, Over the Edge.

| August 18, 2010 | 1 Reply

I do believe Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind. The pressure of mentally inhabiting one dimension while existing physically in another has broken the poor lady’s psyche. I can’t think of any other reason to explain her current level of megalomaniacal paranoia. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday said she supports an investigation into groups […]

Can anyone tell me what the President’s POV on the Ground Zero Mosque is after his comments on Friday night, his walkback on Saturday, and the White House’s walkback of his walkback later in the day? As best I can tell, the President believes that the Muslims behind the Cordoba Project have the Constitutional right […]

At Least They Noted He Was a “Christian”

Dan Collins has unearthed a story of a Christian man’s sacrifice that truly humbles me. There are some twists to the story that make it truly special (and a couple of Dan’s observations demonstrate just how jaded some of us have gotten to the strength of faith and sacrifice). Hit his link and watch the video. It’ll […]

Carter: Blame Worldwide Abuse of Women on the Baptists and Catholics

Carter: Blame Worldwide Abuse of Women on the Baptists and Catholics

I”m pretty sure it’s okay to be embarrassed that we ever elected Jimmy Carter as our President. Would four years of Gerald Ford really been all that horrible? At the very least, we wouldn’t have a former President running around doing this. Carter singled out the Southern Baptist Convention and Roman Catholic Church, claiming that […]

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is known, mainly, for two things. First, she spent a few years as a mostly-invisible Lieutenant Governor of Maryland who was added to the ticket so her running mate Paris Glendening, could tap into the vast Kennedy moneybins. Second, she’s a member of the Kennedy clan, the closest thing to a royal […]

Why is the MSM Misreporting the Notre Dame Controversy?

| May 15, 2009 | 5 Replies

My latest post at The Greenroom delves into the woeful media coverage of the controversy at Notre Dame. My conclusion, such as it is, doesn’t look kindly on the media. So why focus on the speech and not the degree? Well, that’s where you start to see some grey creeping into things. I suppose some […]

I imagine a few folks are going to get excited about the news that Hawaii has officially designated an Islam Day to celebrate “the rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions” of Islam. To be perfectly honest, I could care less what Hawaii does. I live in Maryland. If they want to kowtow to Islam, […]
