In 1999, Hagee was quoted in the Washington Times (“End-times believers hedge apocalypse bets; Dramatic forecasts now hard to find,” Larry Witham, 12/9/99) as saying that “we are obviously in the last days.” In his high-selling 1999 book [...]

Are Women Men’s Transferrable Property? Tradition Says Yes.

Do you yearn for a return to “traditional values”? Consider this essay from the Chalcedon Foundation:

I’ve been Daddy’s girl from Day One. My first word was “Dada.” I’ve always wanted to do what Daddy was doing, go where Daddy was going, read what Daddy was reading, say what Daddy was saying…. Little wonder people [...]

Not the Voice of God You’re Hearing? Sound Check!

A friend who participates in a Facebook group called the “Christian Left” shared this image with me the other day. I wonder if my friend has read the Bible lately. Consider the acts of God and the commands by the voice of God in these books of the Bible:

Genesis Exodus Leviticus Numbers Deuteronomy [...]

This morning, I encountered stacks and stacks of the following “currency” stuffed all over the place in Central Maine:

I cannot for the life of me figure this out. Can you help me understand what…

… the Confederate flag … Jewish Stars of David … Christian demands that you accept Jesus and be born [...]

American Family Association: If You Don’t Talk About Christmas, You Hate Christmas

The American Family Association is at it again.

Sending a new set of ratings to its diminishing band of followers, [...]

Back in 2009, Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas decided he’d had enough of Americans galavanting about, exhibiting the religion of their choice or no religion at all, willy-nilly, hither and thither, all around the town just as they saw fit. To correct this disturbing trend of religious pluralism. Rep. Gohmert introduced the Congressional Hope for [...]
