Thoughts on Zimmerman and Deen (Certainly Not a Classic Rock Duo)

June 29, 2013

Just a few thoughts on George Zimmerman and Paula Deen, as I am a bit disappointed at some the reaction to these stories on both sides. On the Zimmerman story, I do not like the race-baiters who see this thing entirely from the perspective of race. Who knows what is in the heart of Zimmerman, […]

The LGBT Movement and the Pursuit of Ends

June 26, 2013

The problem, in my view, with the LGBT movement is not that they have a particular view they are advocating for, but the manner in which they pursue it. Regardless of whether I agree with their ends, which I don’t, I could at least respect them if they didn’t have to demonize the church or […]

What the LGBT Lobby Hath Wrought in California

May 27, 2013

Here in California, Assembly Bill 640 is making its way through the legislative process, authored by openly homosexual Tom Ammiano (D–San Francisco). AB 640 would require group health plan contracts to cover infertility treatments for same-sex couples, who by definition cannot procreate together. This bill would force insurance carriers and, by extension, policy holders, to […]

Lessons Learned from Jason Collins

May 5, 2013

I think we actually learned some things from the interesting case of NBA player Jason Collins. I can’t think of anything good that we learned, but it was hardly surprising the way things are going. And just to think, a President who could not recollect simple facts eight months later about a terrorist attack and […]

To the Liberal Media: We Don’t Care About Jason Collins Sex Life

April 29, 2013

So today NBA basketball player Jason Collins became the first active male player in American professional sports to come out as gay. Media people were tripping over themselves calling his move courageous, strong, and some identified him as a leader. Some are even calling it historical. Well it’s not courageous, it doesn’t make him a […]

Society and The Gosnell Trial: Degradation vs. Dignity

April 21, 2013

The Wall Street Journal had an insightful editorial this weekend by Sohrab Ahmari titled Leon Kass: The Meaning of the Gosnell Trial. What Kass has brilliantly put his finger on is the degradation in our culture that has become disrespectful of dignity and indifferent to degradation. Just think about what you see on the major networks […]

Rebutting the WSJ Article “A Conservative Case for Gay Marriage”

April 13, 2013

I read, with great interest, Bret Stephens’ recent article “A Conservative Case for Gay Marriage.” With all due respect to Mr. Stephens, I think this represents the laziest, sloppiest thinking today that somehow passes for journalism, particularly “conservative” journalism. In truth, there is no “conservative” case for gay marriage. A conservative might make a case […]

Can Christians Support Same-Sex Marriage?

April 7, 2013

Here I am writing another post defending marriage. There is so much more to be said because the debate over same-sex marriage has practically no intellectual weight to it on either side. The side for same-sex marriage is purely emotional, and will answer any pressing question with an insult that the person opposed is a […]

It is Better to Be Thought a Fool…

March 29, 2013

I recently read a Huffington Post article titled 6 Things Christians Should Stop Saying, written by the self-described “Author, Speaker, Thought Leader, and Spiritual Teacher,” Steve McSwain. I must say that for someone with so many titles I am completely underwhelmed. How someone who is supposedly so learned can be so ignorant of Christianity is quite […]

Was Jesus Accepting of Homosexuality? (Part 2)

February 23, 2013

This is a follow up post to my last post asking if Jesus was accepting of homosexuality, where I argued in the negative. But of course, that does not mean Jesus did not love homosexuals. The issue has always been with sin, whether it be homosexual sin or any other type of sin, and that […]
