From Leaning Left to Having Left: A Tragic Trajectory

At the outset of this piece, let me say that I know I will be accused of “slippery slope” argumentation. So let me explain my thought process this way: suppose that several students in a school came down with a vicious stomach bug – vomiting, diarrhea, the whole nine yards. And suppose that you observed…

Repenting of Our Sins to Big Brother

I feel I should begin this post by saying that I do not watch the steaming sewage pipeline that is Big Brother Brazil, one of Brazilian TV’s most popular programs. I have much better things to do with my time. Like getting a root canal, for example. For those unfamiliar with the Big Brother TV…

Play Pagan Games, Win Pagan Prizes

I’ve long contended that God has a biting sense of humor.

The Three-Headed Monster that Killed Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is dead. For all practical purposes, as a time when society as a whole pauses to thank God for His manifold blessings, it does not exist. And it didn’t die of natural causes either. It was brutally murdered by a three-headed beast which, by the way, is also killing society as a whole. Thanksgiving…

Missionary Max…Racist?

The other day it occurred to me that it had been a while since I checked for new reviews for the Missionary Max books on Amazon. Turns out, there was indeed a new one for Missionary Max and the Lost City, and it’s…well…um…take a look: How is this written in this century let alone this…
