Supreme Court Go-Round

Radical leftist groups are tying themselves in knots again.  They want freedom of expression, yet they seek to silence any speech, be it written, televised, or spoken, with which they do not agree.

Leftist groups want to be free to demonstrate on behalf of their causes.  Yet they confront demonstrators with whom they disagree with threats and even physical violence.   Leftist groups claim they want everyone to be free to do anything he, she or the “unassigned,” wish to do or not do.  However, they are intent on beating up on Jack Phillips, the baker in Lakewood, Colorado, who was the victor in the Supreme Court case Masterpiece Bakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission handed down on June 4, 2018.

In case you have been living under a rock and may be unfamiliar with this case,  Phillips, a deeply religious Christian man, refused to create a cake especially for a gay wedding.   However,  he offered to sell the couple any cake that was readily available in his shop.  In short, he did not discriminate, by refusing to serve the couple, he simply refused to create something that violated his core beliefs.

Supreme Court Guilty of Dereliction of Duty

In sports, a tie is said to be like kissing your sister.

The Supreme Court decision Masterpiece Bakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a case where a baker was punished for refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding, was something like that.  It was unrewarding for both sides.

The 7-2 decision ruled in favor of the baker, saying the state commission did not treat him fairly when it disparaged his religious beliefs.   Also, the Court found the commission showed an obvious bias against this baker because it had upheld the right of other bakers to refuse to bake cakes with anti-gay themes.  Unfortunately, the Court did not rule on the underlying issues in this case.  Continue reading “Supreme Court Guilty of Dereliction of Duty”

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

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.   Continue reading “The Culture vs Biblical Morality (Culture Wins at Least for Now)”

Trump Ties Himself in Knots on “60 Minutes”

In the third presidential debate I found myself screaming at Donald Trump when he addressed Chris Wallace’s questions regarding his Supreme Court appointments.

Trump, I assumed, fell into the litmus test trap when he answered Wallace’s first question on gun rights.  Trump said, “We are going to appoint justices that will feel very strongly about the Second Amendment.”

Trump threw out a another litmus test when Wallace then asked, “Do you want the court, including the justices that you will name, to overturn Roe v. Wade, which includes, in fact, states a woman’s right to abortion?” Continue reading “Trump Ties Himself in Knots on “60 Minutes””

Public Schools: How We Lost Them

If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.  Mark 9:42

It’s little wonder that children in public schools from religious households are likely to dabble with all manner of sexual activity before they graduate.  In many, if not most, school districts they are constantly being told that anything-goes-as-long-as-it-goes-with-a-condom and that one lifestyle is just as good as another.  It’s a constant drumbeat from kindergarten through high school.

Our young people are being pushed to experiment with both sexes to find out if they are straight or gay.  Then, they are told that bisexuality may be their true nature.  If none of that works, why not try identifying with the opposite gender?   Now, the Department of Education has informed schools that they must let students use the restroom or locker room of their choice in order to conduct these experiments or simply sneak a peek at the opposite sex.

It’s little wonder that many Christians have given up on the nation’s public schools.   Others feel trapped and simply try to combat the the anything-goes hedonistic message their children receive at school with a strong moral message at home.  It’s an uphill battle.  Children are in school or involved in school activities some 40 hours a week.  If you subtract the hours they spend sleeping and doing homework, you can readily see the imbalance.   Continue reading “Public Schools: How We Lost Them”

How to Get the Fed out of Our Public Schools

We now know that Omar Mateen, the mass murderer who shot up that gay night club in Orlando, had experimented with homosexuality, visited gay dating sites and was a regular at Pulse.

I would not pretend to know what was going on inside the mind of a man who would do such a thing.  However, we do know that his life was in conflict, born into a strict Muslim family and educated in our public schools which are now training grounds for this kind of sexual activity.

If you are not aware of this fact, than you simply don’t know what is going on in your local school.   Continue reading “How to Get the Fed out of Our Public Schools”

GA Governor Feeds Faith-Based Organizations to Gay Activist Lions

On Monday, Nathan Deal, the Republican governor of Georgia,  threw his faith and principles aside in order to feed the radical gay rights activists lions who were baring their teeth and threatening his state.

This move has far-reaching implications for the rest of the nation because it empowers these bullies and the powerful corporations who support them.

Let’s be clear:  The bill Deal vetoed was one of the weakest attempts to restore the religious protections afforded by the First Amendment by any state.  In fact, it did nothing to protect the freedom that should be available to ever person of faith.  It only addressed religious institutions.
