What Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood Really Believes

Cecile-Richards-President-Planned-Parenthood

Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards made a couple of remarkable comments in an interview a couple of weeks ago with Jorge Ramos of Fusion TV. We talked about it on Saturday’s Caffeinated Thoughts Radio show already, but it’s still on my mind and I wanted to write a little about it. The first comment of note was […]

Wedding Cakes, Wheaton College, and the Word of God

At_the_Seattle_Bridal_Show2

It’s in the news almost constantly now, and I’ve grown weary of it: Gay marriage, gay divorce, gay adoption, gay politicians, gay athletes, gay entertainers, and legislation dealing with all things gay. I’d much rather be writing about something else, like Obamacare’s stranglehold on job creation for instance. Or maybe the truly stunning fact that […]

The following book review is by Dr. James Wanliss, Associate Professor of Physics, Presbyterian College, Clinton, SC. Introduction: Maslow at the Beach One of the founders of the school of humanistic psychology, Abraham Maslow, is often given credit for the learning theory of the four stages of competence. The first is unconscious incompetence – you don’t know […]

Hey Evangelicals: Support The Truth Phil Robertson Told

kirsten

When I first saw the news about the suspension of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson by the A&E network over his remarks about gays, I knew it would be a pretty controversial thing. As usual, however, I didn’t anticipate some of the twists and turns that the debate would take, even among those in the evangelical […]

Phil Robertson Suspended Indefinitely Following Gay Remarks

I once heard Alistair Begg say something along the lines of how our culture will tolerate nearly anything, but there were two things that would not be tolerated: You cannot make exclusive claims to truth about God, and you cannot make exclusive claims to truth about human sexuality. Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson did both, and […]

Harold Camping, Family Radio, and a Troubling Legacy

Harold Camping, Founder and President of Family Radio, passed away on Sunday, December 15, 2013.  A statement from Family Radio reads as follows: Harold Camping – Home with the Lord! “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.” Psalm 116:15 Yesterday, Sunday, December 15th, at around 5:30 p.m., Harold Camping […]

The Obamacare Debacle Awakens The Media?

When you are a Democrat President of the United States and you begin to lose the mainstream media, which has carried your water and covered your backside from day one, you might be in real trouble. The latest piece from Ron Fournier of National Journal is a particularly good example of sharp criticism that President […]

Maureen Dowd, Another Delusional Journalist in Leftist World

Maureen_Dowd

I am becoming more convinced day by day that Leftists live in a parallel world where the things they imagine are reality, and reality itself is simply ignored as if it is someone else’s imagination. A Leftist journalist is a special inhabitant of this parallel world. It’s his or her job to promote the delusion, […]

Branstad and Reynolds Just Need to Apologize

speeding

Let’s start with some full disclosure: As much as he annoys me on occasion, I like Governor Branstad. I especially like Lt. Governor Reynolds. So it’s a little hard for me to be critical of them over an issue that is something of a tempest in a teapot. Nonetheless, I think they’ve handled this speeding […]

Christianity, Homosexuality, and “Gay Therapy”

same sex marriage

It’s been all over the news the last few days: Exodus International, a “global outreach to churches, individuals and families offering a biblical message about same-sex attraction”, has announced its closure. Furthermore, Alan Chambers, Exodus International’s President, issued an apology for the “shame” and “trauma” that the organization had caused. Chambers stopped short of renouncing […]

Targeting CO2 Emissions: “A Futile Project”

CO2

I’ve been meaning to write a comprehensive piece on “Climate Change” for quite awhile, and while this post will certainly not be that comprehensive piece I had envisioned, it will briefly touch on an extremely important part and that is this: Even if we believe in what is known as Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), it […]

Jay Carney: A National Treasure

Jay Carney

“I dismiss the premise, the idea that these are scandals,” Carney said flatly, calling the controversy over Benghazi a “total concoction by Republicans,” and the IRS scandal merely “inappropriate behavior” by the IRS. Jay Carney has become absolutely breathtaking in his willingness to spout unmitigated crap to the American people. I don’t remember anyone even […]

We NEED “Sequestration” And We Need It Now

Graphic from the Cato Institute

We’ve all heard the stories by now: On March 1st, if the government doesn’t act to prevent it, the dreaded “sequestration” will happen. On March 2nd, babies will be thrown in the snow. Old people will die of spontaneous combustion. The rest of us be will be fighting over the odd can of dog food […]

Benghazi Questions Will Never Be Answered

Hillary-Clintons-Outrage.jpg

We learned five things at Hillary Clinton’s testimony on Capitol Hill last week regarding the Benghazi attack: 1. She takes responsibility for the matter. 2. She gets a lot of communications via cable (over a million per year), and she can’t possibly read them all. 3. Congress won’t give her the funding she needs. 4. If […]
