Never one to be bothered by the majority if it’s one of his pet projects, Obama has vowed to continue to push for gun control in spite of the recent failure of Congress to do what he wanted them to do. Unfortunately for him, Obama is not really a dictator. He just portrays one on TV when he’s deigning to talk down to all of us, using his index finger as if it was a gun as he peppers listeners and viewers with apoplectic finger stabs to underscore his points.

It has been suggested that it is a tragedy for Evangelicals to pray and fast regarding the new pope as called for by Rick Warren. While it might not be an issue worthy of fasting over as it doesn’t look like most of the top contenders to the papal throne have themselves missed too many [...]
In this era of hyperterrorism where every Tom, Dick, and Abdul with a grudge against society because of a rotten childhood blows up a bus or shoots up a post office, many are not too concerned about the activities of other outcasts striving to save the spotted owl or kangaroo rat with methods outside accepted [...]
Geraldo announced on The O’Reilly Factor that he is a Republican ahead of his possible announcement to run for a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey. I wonder how long he has held that conviction. These are the kinds of milksop candidates you are going to end up with when ethnicity is placed before ideology. [...]
In one classic science fiction plot, antagonists attempt to gain control of the future by attempting to alter the past. Though it might not be as exciting as a Dalorian speeding at 88 miles per hour, maniacal forces in our own reality are attempting to accomplish nearly the same thing by drastically reconceptualizing our understanding [...]
For decades, Santa Monica churches erected nativity scenes on municipal park land there in celebration of the Christmas season. However, the onward march to abolish the assorted foundations upon which America was built continues unabated and is now even seeming to accelerate as evidenced by increasing numbers of the able bodied voting for demagogues promising [...]
Upon leaving the confines of the Earth’s atmosphere and entering the vastness of space, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin is alleged to have remarked, “Where is God?” This was said out of a sense of mockery that the Lord of the universe could not be found in the final frontier rather than an honest inquiry from [...]
Often in their attempt to engineer our lives whether we want them to or not, contemporary liberals have a tendency to hand down any number of psychosocial laws or principles since most of them view us as little more than animals to herd into a corral. It seems that their behavior is often just as [...]
A Maryland county is enacting a law that would equip school buses with cameras to document motorists violating assorted traffic laws in the vicinity of these educational transport vehicles. All well and good. But will there also be cameras recording these public servants driving like bats out of Ghenna? Shouldn’t one’s respect for the Constitution [...]
It sounds like a ludicrous claim. But the 80’s cartoon G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero might just be the Rosetta Stone to understanding early 21st century culture and politics. In the series, the troops of the terrorist organization determined to take over the world are referred to as “vipers”. It seems those using that [...]
Francis Schaeffer has been characterized as an Elijah to the late twentieth century. Though not as inspired in the same direct sense as his Biblical forebears, Francis Schaeffer did articulate a vision of the future remarkable in its accuracy and a message startling in its relevancy. Schaeffer was able to accomplish this by extrapolating from [...]
The Avengers was a good film. However, it was not the greatest superhero movie of all time as has been suggested. And believe me, I have seen some superhero movies. Not much thought went into Hawkeye’s costume. It hardly resembled his ensemble from the comics. The aliens were less than impressive and, along with the [...]
Though at one time barely considered worthy of the appellation of literature, scholars of popular culture have today established the thesis that comic books and other forms of media expression derived from these illustrated periodicals serve as a snapshot of the perspectives and assumptions prevalent at particular points in American history Certain characters and series [...]
Religious leftists will no doubt work themselves up into an outrage that most Southerners still don’t cotton up to the notion of interracial marriage. It is claimed there is nothing in Scripture forbidding the individual from believing in interracial marriage. But neither is there anything in the Bible saying that you are required to believe in it.
For obvious and justifiable reasons, a number of Evangelical leaders often cast a suspicious gaze at Mormon figures in American public life. After all, though the two systems of belief share a similar vocabulary at certain points and often both hold to traditionalist assumptions regarding social morality, these perspectives differ considerably regarding the nature of God as well as the origins and destiny of man.
Anyone that has subscribed to the History Channel or A&E before both networks went nearly all alien autopsy and rummage sales has no doubt seen Crossan. He is a talking head that use to get dragged out around Christmas and Easter time for those specials that posture as giving viewers the latest dirt on the events of the Bible being bantered about in the halls of respectable academia.
