I Have a Joke for You and It Starts with Hillary Clinton

Posted on August 25, 2016 in Religious Freedom by

ClintonHere’s a joke for you: Hillary Clinton says she is a defender of religious freedom!

I’ll admit that’s not a very good joke. It’s a joke nonetheless. Somehow Clinton manages to say silly things like that with a straight face. Even more strange is the cheers she receives from people when she makes those statements. It staggers the imagination to think how Clinton can publicly make such statements and not immediately be rebuked when you consider her other statements and actual works.

Clinton said:

“I’ve been fighting to defend religious freedom for years. As secretary of state, I made it a cornerstone of our foreign policy to protect the rights of religious minorities around the world — from Coptic Christians in Egypt to Buddhists in Tibet.”

Hmm, too bad Clinton has done absolutely nothing to defend religious freedom in America. In fact, she has been front and center in helping to erode religious liberty for American Christians. Responding to Clinton’s claims, an article at The National Review chides Clinton for her audacity: Continue reading

Islamic Leader Calls for “Right” of Polygamy to Be Recognized

Posted on August 24, 2016 in Marriage, Public Policy by

polyamoryWhat moral or legal ground could a government stand on to refuse to legalize polygamy?

As same-sex “marriage” became a cultural obsession in our country, polygamy advocates quietly stood in the shadows, waiting. They were waiting to see what the courts would do as they planned to take action in light of their decision. When the Supreme Court of the United States decided to create a constitutional right to same-sex “marriage” and legalize it, polygamy advocates rejoiced.

If the government decides that two men or two women have the right to be married, what possible legal or moral ground is there for the government to fall back on in refusing to legalize polygamy? That is the question that will soon be asked, and need to be answered.

The question is already being asked abroad.

In Italy, where same-sex “marriage” is legal, an Islamic leader is asking why the Italian government is refusing to acknowledge the “civil right” Muslims have to be in polygamous relationships. And he is using the very same arguments gay rights advocates used to seek the legalization of same-sex “marriage.” Continue reading

Hillary Clinton Thinks “Religious Beliefs Have to be Changed” to Support Abortion

Posted on August 23, 2016 in Life by

Before you vote for Hillary Clinton, consider remarks she made in a speech saying that “religious beliefs” need to change in order to more fully encourage abortion in our culture.

A video, posted below, shares several clips of Clinton’s remarks on abortion which include her desire to see Planned Parenthood get more money, that unborn children don’t have any Constitutional rights, and that Roe v. Wade is settled law. One of the most disturbing comments she made though was that “religious beliefs…have to be changed.”

Just to be clear, Hillary Clinton supports abortion to such a radical degree that she wants those opposed to it based on their religious convictions to change their convictions. This shows how little Clinton knows about religious convictions, the Bible, and the theology that leads to being pro-life.

Clinton is under the impression that those with a theological, Biblical opposition to abortion (religious conviction) are making it up; that such people have just determined on their own to be pro-life. She has no understanding that we have understood the Bible to be pro-life and has called us to be pro-life in adherence to God’s Word. It’s God’s Word, His immutable, holy, eternal Word that asks us to respect every human life.

It is also the Bible that explains that life begins at conception. And the Bible says taking an innocent human life is murder. Therefore, taking the life of an unborn child (a human life) is murder. So the conviction that Christians adhere to is not one we made up, not one we can take or leave; it is the clear teaching of the Bible and we have no other recourse but to joyfully obey God’s Word.

Take a look at the video and see Clinton’s comments for yourself. Before you make the decision to vote for her consider if you can support her position on abortion. It is as critical and central an issue as any.

School Tells Girl She Can’t Use Boys Bathroom – Court Agrees. For Now.

Posted on August 18, 2016 in Public Policy, Sexuality by

Gavin GrimmA potential landmark case is brewing in Virginia where a transgender student has been told to use the bathroom of her biological gender, not her gender identity.

In 2014 a Virginia high school student began using the boys bathroom. Not a big deal until you realize that Gavin Grimm was born female and now identifies as male. The fact that Grimm started using the boys bathroom caused a stir in Gloucester County Virginia and a legal battle soon began.

The ACLU says that Grimm is being “stigmatized and isolated from the rest of his peers just because he is transgender.” Of course the ACLU was also disappointed with the recent court decision that will keep Grimm out of the boys bathroom.

What I find interesting is that the case came to light when parents of several kids at the school complained about Grimm using the boys bathroom. I can’t help but wonder how and why those parents learned of what was going on and decided to complain. Did their kids tell them what going on? Were they having conversations about a transgender person using the “wrong bathroom” with their kids? Were the kids uncomfortable with the situation? Continue reading

This Might Be the Worst Election Advice I’ve Ever Seen

Posted on August 17, 2016 in Life, Public Policy by

Rachel-Held-EvansThe upcoming election is going to be a tough decision for Christians. The last thing anyone needs is advice on who to vote for like the advice given by a Christian blogger.

One of the key issues in the upcoming election is the issue of abortion. Trump has declared himself to be pro-life, a declaration that remains to be seen. But there is absolutely no doubt that Hillary Clinton is one of the most extreme pro-abortion candidates since…President Obama.

Clinton is so radical in her support of abortion that even democrat supporters are having a hard time supporting her. When your own party, people that support abortion, are having a hard time supporting your election campaign because of your radical abortion policies, you know you are as radical on the issue of abortion as one can get.

So how radical is Hillary Clinton on the issue of abortion?

So far she has endorsed repealing both the Hyde and Helms Amendments. In case you aren’t familiar with these two bi-partisan amendments that have been broadly supported for many years, a recent article explains: Continue reading

Olympic Volleyball Star and Mother of Three Makes Feminists Mad by Saying…

Posted on August 16, 2016 in Family, Marriage by

Kerri Walsh Jennings Gold MedalIf you want to know how out of touch some liberal feminists are, take a look at how some responded to pro volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings’ recent comments about motherhood.

Walsh-Jennings is competing in the Rio Olympic games this week. She was recently interviewed and asked about her life as a mother and pro athlete. It was just four years ago that Walsh-Jennings won the gold medal in London while pregnant, an act that captured the hearts of many. This time around she is competing as the mother of three and says that her kids gave her the perspective she needed. She said:

“Before I had more kids, I was like, this feels trivial. I’d been playing for so long, and I was like I need balance. All my eggs are in this one basket and it’s very self-centered and self-focused. They gave me that perspective and balance I thought I was missing. It took my game and my desire and my passion for life to the next level. I am hugely indebted to my children.”

Walsh-Jennings went on to say, “I feel like I was born to have babies and play volleyball.” Continue reading

My Facebook Conversation About Christians and Alcohol Was Helpful

Posted on August 10, 2016 in Religious Freedom, Theology by

Christian drink alcoholI recently posted a blog about whether or not Christians should drink alcohol. (You can see it here). The ensuing conversation with a pastor-friend that I have known nearly all of my life was helpful as I think through this issue.

First we have to admit that the issue of alcohol for Christians has become both important and controversial. For years the standard talking point was that Christians didn’t drink. The churches I grew up in had that principle so ingrained in their culture that we didn’t even have sermons or lessons on the issue; not even a conversation. It was simply understood that Christians did not drink.

In my youth groups growing up we were told that it was wrong to drink. Given the fact that we were underage that was an easy talking point to repeat. But no one ever prepared me for the day when I was legally allowed to drink alcohol and needed to make the choice, biblically, of whether or not I would. Because, again, it was simply understood that Christians did not drink.

When I recently posted an article about whether or not Christians should drink alcohol I got a Facebook message from a pastor-friend that had some thoughts for me. Now, you might be thinking that a “Facebook friend” sent me a harassing message telling me how wrong I was for my views and “encouraging” me to repent. But you’d be wrong. Continue reading

VIDEO: If You’re a Christian Voting Democrat – You Need to See This

Posted on August 9, 2016 in Life by

Benham-BrothersThe following video is one that should be considered very carefully by anyone voting in the upcoming election. The message of this video is at the heart of what is at stake during this election cycle.

Often, anyone that focuses on a single issue during an election will be called myopic, or a “single issue voter.” This is never considered a good thing and people are often told to look beyond that single issue. But, in the case of the sanctity of life it is hard to “look past” a candidate as rabidly in support of abortion as Hillary Clinton.

The video, shot by David Benham, one half of the famed Benham Brothers, reminds Christians that a vote for the Democratic party (Hillary Clinton) is a vote for a radical abortion agenda. Benham states:

“Yes, they are pro-choice, but here’s what they are doing now: They have actually increased what they want to do against the unborn…They have increased the violence against the unborn…If you call yourself a Christian, and you’re voting Democrat, here’s what you’re voting for: The Democratic National Platform wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits my tax dollars from directly paying for abortion. They want to force your money and my money to directly pay for abortion.” Continue reading

VICTORY: Creator of Undercover Planned Parenthood Videos Acquitted of All Charges

Posted on August 4, 2016 in Life by

David Daleiden

A much-needed victory for life against Planned Parenthood happened just as Planned Parenthood CEO Cecil Richards was preparing to speak at the Democratic National Convention.

All charges against David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress have been dropped. Daleiden is the man primarily responsible for the damaging undercover videos of various Planned Parenthood executives explaining how they buy and sell aborted baby body parts. The reason this is a big deal is that trafficking aborted baby body parts is a federal crime.

Daleiden and a partner secretly taped the videos, released over the last year, as they conversed with a number of Planned Parenthood executives directly responsible for obtaining and selling the body parts. As they were released to the public a great outcry ensued. Planned Parenthood (PP) CEO Cecile Richards immediately went into damage control mode as she tried to convince the American people that PP did nothing wrong.

Richards and the PP media machine went into overdrive to discredit the videos, saying they were doctored. Daleiden responded by releasing the unedited footage. So Richards went on a media tour explaining that there was no profit from the sale of the body parts. Again, Daleiden released footage to the contrary. At every turn the videos undermined what PP said and showed that the abortion merchant is a criminal organization.

The response? Continue reading

The NBA Moving the 2017 All-Star Game is Really Irritating. But Not for the Reason You Think

Posted on August 3, 2016 in Public Policy, Sexuality by

nba-all-star-game-movesThe NBA has decided to move the 2017 all-star game because it doesn’t like a state law requiring people to use the bathroom that corresponds with their biological gender! Can’t make this up.

Last week the NBA announced that it would be moving the 2017 all-star game from Charlotte, NC in light of the state’s recently passed bill requiring people to use the bathroom that corresponds with their biological gender. That is an irritating turn of events for several reasons.

The NBA’s statement on the issue is chock-full of silly and hypocritical statements. Take a look:

“Our week-long schedule of All-Star events and activities is intended to be a global celebration of basketball, our league, and the values for which we stand, and to bring together all members of the NBA community. [W]hile we recognize that the NBA cannot choose the law in every city, state and country in which we do business, we do not believe we can successfully host our All -Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2.”

Did you spot the absurdity? Don’t miss it because some of those statements are so silly that you have to feel sorry for…er…umm…whoever decided to write that nonsense. Let me show you. Continue reading
