The Culture vs Biblical Morality (Culture Wins at Least for Now)

with 4 comments

Disney’s long-awaited live-action remake of the fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” broke records on its opening weekend despite the news that, for the first time, the studio is featuring an openly gay character in a film aimed at children.

Disney has been promoting the gay agenda for some time but never crossed this all-important line.  It’s executives have reason to celebrate.  Despite this controversial content that flies in the face of Biblical morality, the film broke the record for best March opening, Best PG rated all-time opening, and scored the 7th biggest launch of all time for any movie.   It pulled in $174.8 million in the U.S. where 70.6 percent of our population identify as Christians and another 1.4 percent adhered to Judaism.

Both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible condemn homosexuality in the strongest terms, as do all the major religions.  However, only one theater in the United States, a drive-in in DeKalb County, Alabama, refused to show the movie.   Read the rest of this entry »

Hillary Clinton Hypocrisy on the Wage Gap (The Democrats Political Unicorn)

with 4 comments

I was having brunch with some new, very accomplished, female friends when the subject of the presidential race came up.  One of these friends announced that she was a Democrat because she believes in equality.

Women now control 51 percent of all wealth in the U.S.  They hold 52 percent of management and professional positions.  They earn more degrees of higher learning and own 30 percent of all private businesses.  Still, one of the key myths promoted every election cycle is the wag gap.  It’s the  political unicorn used to persuade millions of women that they are victims of inequality and they need Democrats like Hillary Clinton to save them.   Like the legendary horse from classical antiquity, it doesn’t exist.   Read the rest of this entry »

Why Women Are Easy Prey for Liberal Democrats

with one comment

With President Obama as welcome on the campaign trail as brownies at a meeting of Weight Watchers, and his policies as popular as Bach at a bowling alley, Democrats can be forgiven for rolling out the old “war on women” thing.  After all, it’s their ace in the hole, a proven winner when it comes to stirring up the electorate and getting out the vote.

“Those mean old Republicans want to take away your birth control, keep your wages below that of your male counterparts,” and did I hear, “deny your right to vote”?  Surely that must be in there somewhere.

Can’t blame them because they have been sewing these bad seeds for so long, it’s little wonder they are hoping that some still will bear fruit.

You really can’t blame women for falling for this gambit.  It’s not that women are dumb or that few take the time to research these charges that are thrown about like so much confetti before every election.  It’s just that most women are simply doing their best to survive in what is fast becoming a socialist, feminist utopia.

A Seven-Year-Old Looks at the Office of President

with 3 comments

On Friday, my seven-year-old granddaughter came home from school with a long face.  “Grandmother,” she said, “is there any way a kid like me could talk to someone who could get the president to change a law?”

“The president can’t change laws, honey,” I replied.  “Only Congress can do that.”

“Well, who could I talk to about changing a bad law?”

“What law is that?” I enquired.

“The one that won’t let kids vote for president.”

“If you could vote, how would you go about deciding who would make the best president?” I asked.   Read the rest of this entry »

The “Core” Problem in Education

with one comment

One of the biggest mistakes of President Ronald Reagan was his failure to deliver on a promise to abolish the federal Department of Education.  

When you hear someone mention that today, he or she is regarded as a complete nincompoop, who has little regard for children. 

Most people don’t remember life before the federal Department of Education.  It was created in 1979 by Jimmy Carter and we did quite well without it. Read the rest of this entry »
