Grab a gun, young lady

Conscription is a form of enslavement and I’m thankful that national opinion currently opposes a military draft. I’m also thankful there isn’t the type of mandatory “national service” to Caesar that is in place elsewhere. However, a national emergency is … Continue reading

Another mediocre Star Wars film

The last, and only, good Star Wars film came out in 1977. Before George Lucas got cute, that film was simply called “Star Wars.” It generated deserved excitement at the theater. It was audacious, it was original, and yet it … Continue reading

Clouds, misdirection, and euphemisms

Although I think both parties are part of the abortion problem rather than the solution since they both support the entire entitlement state that undergirds it, this just takes the cake. Our evil emperor strikes again… For more than an … Continue reading

Demotivational speaking

Few things are as demotivating as motivational speakers. Today in Columbus, we had this event. Among all the shining luminaries — Laura Bush! Terry Bradshaw! Lola Heatherton and Dr. Tongue! — guess who was the keynote speaker? Yes, the same … Continue reading

Pastor Timmons and Paul Young

Pastor Timmons had a conversation with Paul Young, author of The Shack. It’s a worthwhile read. Charm. Check. Pragmatism. Check. Gnostic speculation. Check. Denial of hierarchy. Check. Fudging. Check.

The politics of opposing abortion

The documentary First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women is well worth viewing. It confronts feminism in a friendly but uncompromising fashion. One day, perhaps I’ll blog on it more fully, but one of many points … Continue reading

Dump Ron for Mitt– why?

It’s baffling to see how much conservatives direct fire at Ron Paul on abortion. Ron Paul has been pro-life his entire career. Consistent with his views on federal power, he wants to overturn Roe and send it back to the … Continue reading

Man and person

There is this commercial running almost non-stop during the Olympics entitled “The World’s Greatest Spokesperson… in the world.” It’s supposed to be funny, but all I hear is that one word: spokesperson. The great columnist, Joseph Sobran, noted how egalitarian … Continue reading

The Shack

I’m out of the loop with popular culture, but apparently a book called The Shack is very popular. There are many articles and podcasts dissecting its errors. For example, here and here and here. I first heard of The Shack … Continue reading

The other side of the “choice” coin

This article hits it on the head. Hollywood always treats abortion with plenty of dishonesty and euphemism. Usually the woman is raped or abused, or at worst she’s a teen who commits a youthful “indiscretion.” She earnestly ponders her situation, … Continue reading

A descent slowed by dollars

It seems like The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and other mainline denominations have been debating sodomy forever. While some ELCA pastors are correctly saying that the debate is about the authority of the Word, that ship sailed long … Continue reading

Where no one has gone before

I think it was Benny Hill who once did a skit where he slowly plays a G chord from top to bottom. When he comes to the final string where where you expect to hear that familiar high G note, … Continue reading

Get practical

Returning from a wonderfully pleasant Thanksgiving gathering, my lovely wife and I discussed something Peter Schiff wrote in his The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets. Namely, the basic uselessness of most college degrees. Liberal arts degrees are … Continue reading

Why the focus on partial birth abortion?

Nikolai Yezhov and Lavrenti Beria remain notorious. Yezhov was a crazed, alcoholic, bisexual dwarf who enthusiastically oversaw Stalin’s Great Terror. Beria, his successor, was a sadistic killer and rapist. Neither, particularly Beria, was averse to getting blood on his shirt. … Continue reading

Zena the Warrior Princess meets Prince Caspian

Doesn’t this get you pumped up about the latest Narnia film? (Yes, I know, the movie has been out for weeks and this is late… but fashionably late). Yawn. The feminist hits keep-a-comin’ with this series; we heard this routine … Continue reading

An opponent gets it

In the recent newsletter of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio, a reader chastises the Rev. William Gartig for approving of sodomy and denying the “clear teaching of the church for thousands of years.” Gartig responds: If you start from … Continue reading

The third sex

An old witticism notes that there are three sexes: male, female, and clergy. For those of you not laughing, the comment alludes to a certain “softness” among some clergymen. I trust most of you who’ve been amid Catholic or mainline … Continue reading

Ring the bells now or wring your hands later

Baylyblog is stirring the waters again with Carolyn Custis “two last names” James. Pastor Gleason has followed suit. Why all this whining about pastorettes and deaconesses? Moody would’ve asked us to focus on winning souls. Today’s leaders might ask us … Continue reading

The small pleasures of love

Even mushy evangelicals aren’t enamored of feminist harpies. You know, the wild hairs who march around with coat hangers. But I find “Christian egalitarians” far more offensive. They deny things that no one seriously denied for two thousand years. They … Continue reading

A New Year’s Thought

As Chrsitians, we believe that God has revealed Himself in His word. The Bible is a revelation of what we need to know. It doesn’t tell us everything about everything, but it tells us, in the words of the Westminster … Continue reading

Feminism’s enablers

Law and Grace are not opponents; they are teammates working together for the salvation of God’s people. The law leads to grace, which is only to be found in Christ. This is what Paul demonstrated as he answered the question: … Continue reading

Not trained for warfare?

I have often recommended the Reformation Study Bible. Its notes are very helpful, but occasionally there is an oddity. Nahum predicts the downfall of Assyria, and verse 3:12 uses this allusion to the disintegration of its armies: Behold, your troops … Continue reading

Subtle men do the most harm

Reading another excellent post on creeping egalitarianism by the Bayly brothers reminded me of this Martyn LLoyd-Jones passage: [The] process of change is never a sudden one. It is always a subtle and slow process.. Perhaps the clearest demonstration of … Continue reading

Nailing jello to a wall

I occasionally read the newsletter of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio. Now, the Episcopal church long ago entered the realm of absurdity. Hints of idolatry and disobedience abound in the newsletter, always couched in phony virtue. For example, Bishopess … Continue reading
