War on Christians Redux

Over at HotAir.com, they've assembled their "Quotes of the Day" with a focus on the Houston pastor subpoena fiasco. Skimming the briefs, this one from Slate.com, caught my eye. But I’m not particularly interested in defending the Houston lawyers’ actions, because, frankly, they were incredibly stupid, instantly regrettable, and utterly unnecessary. Yes, Houston’s anti-LGBT coalition […]

War on Christians

If there's a culture war going on in America today, Christians aren't the aggressors. Last week, the openly lesbian mayor of Houston applauded (then backpedaled and threw her lawyers under the bus) a series of subpoenas issued to five area pastors demanding the contents of their sermons and any communications they may have had with […]

Feeling decidely un-Christian tonight

Last night, amid much media attention, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced that she had vetoed S.B. 1062, an anti-gay bill that would have quickly meant that gays in Arizona would be forced to sit at the back of the bus, be banned from Woolworth's lunch counters, prevented from attending state colleges, be harassed and probably […]

War on Christian conscience

Last week, Fox News talking head and columnist Kirsten Powers wrote a column for USA Today that accused legislators in Kansas of creating a new system of "Jim Crow" laws with their efforts to protect religious believers from being forced to violate their consciences by providing services to gay nuptials. Four days later, she published another piece, […]

Deja vu all over again

As my time in journalism school at Cal Poly continues to retreat into the dim corners of my memory, there are still handful of in-class incidents that I remember from those halcyon days of the early '90s. This morning on "Fox News Sunday," host Chris Wallace made a statement that triggered on of those memories. […]

Completely missing the point

The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto tweeted a link to this story on the CNN belief blog that literally (a la Joe Biden—which means figuratively) blew my mind. I was raised as an evangelical Christian in America, and any discussion of Christian-Jewish-Muslim relations around the world must include the phenomenon of American Islamophobia, for which […]

God's economics

Reading this bit of stupidity today made my blood boil. Americans often tell pollsters they yearn for a return to the Christian principles on which the U.S. was founded. If so, they should take a closer look at the Romney-Ryan ticket. Jesus’s teachings regarding wealth are nowhere to be found in Paul Ryan’s budget proposals. […]

Uphold and defend what?

HHS Secretary and former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius swore an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. Since then, it’s apparently been out of sight, out of mind. Wow, just wow. It’s the final portion of this exchange that’s the most telling. When deciding to mandate that religious employers and institutions violate their consciences when […]

You know, it's one thing for the average rube to buy into the Barack Obama as messiah complex with the idea that he'll make their house payments for them and buy them their gas. But you'd think that someone as sophisticated as his Harvard Law-trained wife would be a little more inured to the whole […]

Willfully dishonest

Late last month The Washington Post decided to make a cause célèbre out of the case of a woman who was denied communion [PDF format] at her mother’s funeral. At the bottom of the front page was a sympathetic story of how heart-broken Johnson was. Oh, by the way, Johnson had talked to the priest […]

When watching a MLB game and it goes extra innings and a runner goes to second base I have to turn the tv off because it’s no longer a MLB game

You have to be clinically insane to want to put the federal government in charge of your healthcare. The most incompetent people on the planet making life and death decisions for you and your family. Hard pass. https://twitter.com/allahpundit/status/1382117696653889547
