America–Home of the Brave

Thursday, May 19th, 2022

On April 19, 1995 Timothy McVeigh attacked the United States of America.  He murdered 168 Americans. Ten children were among the dead. At the time of his arrest, McVeigh had excerpts from the Turner Diaries in his car.  This 1978 novel by William Luther Pierce depicts a coming race war.  White supremacists attacked the United […]

It’s the Market Stupid

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022

One year and 4 months after Donald Trump took occupancy of the White House, gas price averages rose from $2.46 to $2.99 per gallon.  Two years later, in May 2020, the average price per gallon had fallen to $1.96. What causes these wild swings?  What had Donald done in office? Nothing. Oil companies, not the […]

Addiction

Saturday, April 30th, 2022

Addictive behavior can destroy the addict as well as those around them.  Addicts find it harder and harder to distinguish reality from imagination.  They tell themselves lies and demand others accept the lies as truth. Dealing with an addict can be very exhausting.  Addicts respond to the truth with false allegations and threats.  Their paranoia […]

Put Loyalty to America First

Friday, February 11th, 2022

Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell couldn’t have been any clearer about January 6.  “It was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election. … That’s what it was.” McConnell made this statement in response to the Republican National Committee endorsing the insurrection.  The […]

Poisoned Fields

In Matthew Chapter 13, Jesus told a parable about a sower. Since farming was a common occupation, it wasn’t hard to understand.  Seeds, like words, require fertile soil to grow. Teachers can only do so much. Anyone familiar with growing plants knows, however, that with a little work, a farmer can prepare the soil.  Adding […]

Which Side Are You On?

Thursday, January 6th, 2022

On January 6, 2021, Fox News host Laura Ingram texted Mark Meadows, Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff.  Ingram begged, “Mark, the president needs to tell people in the Capitol to go home. This is hurting all of us. He is destroying his legacy.”  Everyone in the White House and on Fox News knew who was […]

Rebellious Lies

Wednesday, December 15th, 2021

Why have Republicans embraced the lie? If they can lie about something we all watched, they can lie about anything. Ohh wait….Tax cuts don’t pay for themselves. Diversity really is a strength for America. We can trust women in their doctors’ offices. Christianity is founded on compassion for the poor, not the idolatry of power […]

Don’t Bear False Witness

Thursday, October 14th, 2021

Justice requires the truth.  As Americans we require anyone testifying to do it under oath.  Oath breakers face penalties for perjury. The truth is no less important in other aspects of life.  Both Civil Law and the Bible made bearing false witness a crime.  Civil law calls it liable.  Psalm 6 calls bearing false witness […]

Covid: Think Globally, Active Locally

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

I don’t know about you, but I started off my summer with hope.  Together—united as one nation–we had turned the corner on Covid 19.  The experts were right.  Masks and physical distancing saved lives and bought time for many of us to get vaccinated. In June, however, conservative politicians decided it was time to surrender.  […]
