On the Roy Moore & Al Franken Charade

I’ve resisted commenting on the controversy surrounding Roy Moore out of Christian duty to judge according to righteous judgment and not according to appearances, waiting for all of the pertinent facts to appear. (John 7:24) That being said, I’m breaking my silence due to the glaring hypocrisies and sanctimonies that are begin left unchallenged. I ask the reader to patiently and carefully read the ensuing lines, as there is plenty of nuance to discuss.

It was recently propagated by “sportscaster” Leeann Tweeden that Senator Al Franken groped and violently kissed her during a USO Tour in 2006. The vulgar details, including photographic proof, are readily available online. Immediately after the “news” broke, Franken, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the leftist mainstream media and even Imbecilewood (my new name for Hollywood) celebrities undertook “damage control mode”.

Some who are well aware of the developments will question and challenge my description of what transpired. They’ll state that authentic outrage is what has mostly been on display. Not so – and I’ll prove it! Continue reading

Can Christianity and Traditionalism Mix?

I’ve been hearing an awful lot lately about “Traditionalism”. It’s a movement, particularly prominent among Millennials, that rejects Cultural Marxism in all of its manifestations (including Feminism and militant sexualism) and embraces orthodox Western norms, such as heterosexual marriage and traditional gender roles.

Although the growing sentiment and adherence to the creed is certainly encouraging (especially when one considers that it is mostly being promoted by younger folk), I for one am still troubled to see that many insist on separating traditional principles from its root – Christianity.

The Curious Case of High-Profile Conservatives Against Boycotts

The public boycotts have been mounting, justifiably and encouragingly so, against organizations that insist on supporting immoral thought and behavior either directly or indirectly.

First it was Target, after they announced that their bathrooms and fitting rooms would be open to “transgender” persons. Then it was Shakespeare in the Park, depicting what a Trump assassination would look like if interpreted along the lines of Julius Caesar. It has culminated with the NFL and its insistence that players be allowed to disrespect our national anthem and Old Glory. Continue reading

5 Ways to Use Your Time Wisely

So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.Psalms 90:12

In an increasingly fragmented, delusional, illusory, disorderly and promiscuous era, it is important for the Biblical Christian to resist the secular tide and behave in a manner consistent with the true faith. This means acting and thinking in a manner that is contrary to the secular age. (Rom. 12:1-2)

This is a primary reason why I write about and criticize dangerous ideas that are popularized throughout the worldly culture. It is my hope that in doing so the reader will see the dogma for what it is and avoid it altogether, in keeping with the advice dispensed by Paul to the Thessalonians (1 Thess. 5:21-22):

“Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” Continue reading

Trump’s Right. Boycott the NFL.

Trump is craftier than most people are willing to admit. Behind the veneer of feeble language – which some misjudge as evidence that he is an imbecile – he demonstrates a proclivity for playing both sides of the political spectrum. Yet, even with that astuteness, he often manages to proclaim the truth which many wish to omit or cowardly desist from speaking out loud. It is in this vein that Trump has effectively given voice to what many are thinking about professional sports, their ignorant athletes and their sanctimonious and ignorant public stances.

During a campaign rally for incumbent senator Luther Strange in Alabama, Trump deviated off-script (as he often does) to loquaciously appeal to the attendees’ patriotism by denouncing the NFL’s tolerance for its players kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner. (Do remember that this entire charade was commenced by Colin Kaepernick, the now unemployed quarterback who latched on to the racist Black Lives Matter motif in an attempt to self-servingly salvage his career.)

It Has Become Us Versus Them

When the CEOs of abusive corporations decide to moralize to the rest of the country, you know you’ve got an irony problem. When reprobates who perform insignificant tasks for obscene amounts of money, such as professional athletes, actors and musicians, condescendingly sermonize and harp on about their supposed virtue, you know you’ve got an irony problem.

This hypocritical puffery is what most Americans have been increasingly exposed to throughout the past 50 years. It’s probably hit its peak, proven by how brazen those that lecture us have become about what they lecture us on and how.

Case and point and the latest examples: Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Hollywood elites during the Emmys and Colin Kaepernick. Continue reading

How to Debate False Teachers Pt.2

Some time ago I published the beginnings of an exchange between myself and a local pastor who’s individual’s Facebook post sought to normalize the idea that the Christian ought to self-censor the truth and refrain from joining a “faction in defense of an ideal”. To Biblical Christians who are familiar with Jesus’ character and teachings, such notions are not only ridiculous but an affront to Christ and his commands.

I promised at the end of that article to publish the subsequent debate with the intention of demonstrating to the brethren who wish to confront the demagogues in our midst what they ought to expect when doing so. Continue reading
