Attacks on religious liberty continue in the United States

    

I am reading two books now that I believe that Christians need to take notice of, not because they are correct, but because there is just enough truth in them to be instructional. Both books are by Marci A. Hamilton, God vs. the Gavel, Religion and the Rule of Law, published in 2005, and God […]

Seeing through the fog

    

There were two excellent articles appearing in the Sunday newspapers.  One was an article by Francis Wilkinson writing for Bloomberg View and the second by Kevin Carey written for the Sunday New York Times. In the Wilkinson’s column, the question posed was, “If the Tea Party is dying, why is Trump winning?” According to the […]

The War on Christianity and the Ten Commandments Monument

    

Here in Oklahoma, we have gone through a much publicized part of the “War on Christianity” concerning a granite monument engraved with the Ten Commandments placed on the grounds of the State Capitol in Oklahoma City.  The total expense of this manufacture and installation was paid by my state representative, flight surgeon, and personal doctor […]

Shangri-La is below Heaven on my list

Radical Islamic terrorists at our shores

    

“Radical Islamic Terrorism” is already at our shores. How many times do we have to relive the 9/11 attacks, recruiter killings, beheadings here in our own state, Boston Marathon bombings, shootings at Fort Hood, etc., to finally get the message?

Americans are not informed about the Islamic threat

    

Virtually everywhere Islam goes, eventually there is violence, oppression and/or death.  We have witnessed just a few instances of this in recent weeks with the bombing of the Russian airliner, the attacks in Paris and the attacks in Mali – all apparently the work of ISIS or al Qaeda.  Last week, there was a news […]

ISIS Plots as the President Taunts

    

You may recall November 13 when President Obama reported that ISIS was contained and then, within hours ISIS blew up seven Paris sites that killed and injured over 200 individuals. The president has again opened up his divisive rhetoric with those who oppose bringing thousands of Syrian refugees to America, many who could be ISIS […]

We have a lot reasons to be thankful

    

As each year comes near to the end, it has been the practice in the United States, from before we were a nation, to stop and reflect on the multitude of blessings that have been poured out on our lives, individually and as a nation. While there have been great “nation states” and “city states” […]

Finally, on November 6, PRESBO announced that he would not approve the partial-built Keystone XL Pipeline project proposed to bring Canadian produced crude oil across the Dakotas, Nebraska and Kansas to Cushing, Oklahoma, and then one across Texas to Houston and Port Arthur.  From there it would provide input to Gulf Coast refineries, which are […]
