The Consequence Of Being A Christian

If you support traditional marriage, how often have you heard, "how will allowing same-sex marriage affect you?"  And if you support same-sex marriage, how often have you said this?  The thing is that the act of men marrying men or women marrying women doesn't have much of an effect.  It's the … [Read more...]

This is why I detest same-sex marriage activists

Below is a video taken via cell phone.  This man waits in line for some time for his free water just to harass whomever it is that has the unfortunate pleasure of being at the drive-thru window of Chick-Fil-A.  You can see the woman is exceedingly pleasant (I have never been greeted so warmly) … [Read more...]

Bigotry and Chick-Fil-A

It never ceases to amaze me the frequency with which those who claim to be victims of religious oppression react by calling the kettle black.  The latest example is the Chick-Fil-A non-shocker.  The president of restaurant was asked his stance on the marriage issue.  Of course the media and … [Read more...]

Does Jesus Love LGBT People?

I am always on the lookout for new topics to write about.  And some of the most fertile places are venues which espouse views different from my own.  One of the best places for conservative Christians to scout for new ideas is the Huffington Post religion section.  The Huffington Post is always in … [Read more...]

Which philosophy do you use?

I had previously posed this question in a poll: Which philosophy is better: Your religious views should inform your political views; your political views should inform your religious views; or, both should be compartmentalized and neither should inform the other? I would like to know where my … [Read more...]

Embracing Homosexuality: America’s Litmus Test

Chick-Fil-A has announced its support for traditional marriage and it should come as no surprise that they have caught some flack for it.  What is surprising though is where it's coming from.  The Mayor of Boston has announced that he will use his power to prevent the fast food chain from opening in … [Read more...]

Eagle Scout Renounces Award Over BSA Policy

News that the Boy Scouts of America upheld their policy prohibiting homosexuals to serve as scout masters has prompted protest from supporters of what some deem a matter of gay rights.  This protest should be expected given the attention same-sex marriage brings to the fore.  But one Eagle Scout has … [Read more...]

What do you have to say?

Simply put I'd like to hear from people who read my blog. I want to know what you the reader like about my writing, and what you don't like. What you'd like to see more of and less of. What brought you here in the first place and what keeps you here. … [Read more...]

Week In Review

Liberal policies failing before our very eyes: (Inverster's Business Daily) -- More workers joined the federal government's disability program in June than got new jobs, according to two new government reports, a clear indicator of how bleak the nation's jobs picture is after three full years of … [Read more...]

Changing Sexual Orientation Is Easy

One of the more contentious obstacles in the same-sex marriage debate is what makes someone homosexual.  Whether sexual attraction is an immutable genetic trait, a product of environment, or a mixture of the two.  There are examples of men and women who self-identified as gay at one point in their … [Read more...]

Polling Discrepancies

Any time the hot-button issue of same-sex marriage makes headlines for what ever reason, media outlets and activists tout polls which claim the number of Americans who support same-sex marriage is either on the rise -- which I don't dispute with some qualifications -- or that it is the majority … [Read more...]

Now you’re a racist AND a homophobe

Since President Obama's "evolution" in his position on same-sex marriage, the media has been beside itself with praise for his "leadership" on this issue.  It doesn't really come as a surprise to me, he seems to support every liberal cause imaginable.  Unfortunately the left has not played fair when … [Read more...]

What makes all human beings equal?

This seems like a rather mundane question to some, but one everyone needs to have an answer to. It has profound implications politically, sociologically, and religiously. I think it is fair to say that the great majority of us believe all human beings are equal -- not necessarily in social status, … [Read more...]

This Is A Democracy, Not A Theocracy!

This is a democracy, not a theocracy! is something I have heard more than once from both liberals and secularists, who are likely to be one in the same.  Non-religious Americans are nearly twice as likely to be Democrat or Democrat leaning, and in my experience both more likely to be hostile and … [Read more...]

Can’t Hardly Wait

There are many reasons women offer as to why they seek or have sought abortion.  In my opinion, none are good enough to justify taking the life of the developing baby within her with the exception of saving the life of the mother.  I admit when I characterize the reasons given for abortion, it … [Read more...]

All It Takes Is One?

Anyone apart of the Facebook world has likely seen a video of Zach Wahls petitioning the Iowa State House of Representatives opposing the proposed ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions.  Wahls describes a storybook rendering of his childhood as he recounts being raised by a lesbian … [Read more...]

Are You A Real Christian? (This Is Not A Test)

As I spend more and more time on the internet discussing religion, I realize there are many impressions people hold of what others should believe in order to rightly claim affiliation with any particular faith system.  Specifically when it comes to Christianity, a good many people believe they can … [Read more...]

Out Of Sight, Out Of (Your) Mind

Dailymail.co.uk -- Chaz Bono is the son of Cher and Sonny Bono. While growing up, he says he always felt uncomfortable and, after years of feeling out of place, he realised he was not Chastity but Chaz.  And so he came out as transgendered and initiated the transition from female to male. I think … [Read more...]

What Is Marriage?

I ask those proponents of same-sex marriage (S-SM) this question: what is marriage?  This is not some glib rhetorical question.  The responses from the previous commentaries have me scratching my head and wondering what it is S-SM advocates believe marriage's purpose is.  I must ask because there … [Read more...]

Authorized Personnel Only

In the last commentary I responded to an op-ed piece from Rich Benjamin on NYTimes.com in which he made his case for boycotting the weddings of his heterosexual family and friends.  I argued that his reasons for his protest are empty in content, since what he suggested the homosexual community … [Read more...]
