Marco Rubio’s criticism of President Obama for speaking at a mosque is far from Christian

I am a Bible-believing Christian. As such, I believe that Islam is fundamentally and profoundly wrong in its theological teachings. But, because I am a Bible-believing Christian, I also believe that Americans must treat the Muslims among us with the same respect, dignity, and acceptance we want for ourselves. President Obama goes to a mosque… Read More »

Trey Gowdy Violated the Golden Rule in the Clinton Benghazi Hearing

Watching Rep. Trey Gowdy chair the Hillary Clinton Benghazi hearing left me wondering. What I saw and heard on television during that hearing, and what Mr. Gowdy has said on other occasions just didn’t seem to match up. I’m wondering where the disconnect is. Trey Gowdy is a Christian, a Southern Baptist. In June, speaking… Read More »

Dennis Hastert: Be Sure Your Sin Will Find You Out

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is now receiving the kind of notoriety he never sought or achieved during his political career. He has been indicted for lying to federal authorities about cash withdrawals that were allegedly used as hush money in an attempt to hide sexual misconduct in his past.

Hobby Lobby case shows liberals can be as ideologically intolerant as conservatives

Reactions to the recent Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision that affirmed the right of closely held corporations to refuse to offer abortion and birth control services to their employees because of the religious convictions of the owners, were very revealing. Unsurprisingly conservatives hailed the decision as a victory for religious freedom. On the left, however,… Read More »

Do recent anti-immigration protests reflect God’s heart?

This post is not about the politics of immigration policy. But it is about some of the protests that have taken place over the past several weeks against the huge influx of children who have crossed our borders seeking asylum. The pictures we have seen on TV are, to my mind, absolutely appalling. Men and… Read More »

Political lies are still lies!

A lie is a lie, even when it’s a political lie. Politicians who believe themselves to be people of character somehow seem to think that lies told to support a political agenda are permissible in a way that other lies are not. The latest example of this is former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s comment… Read More »
