To Be An American…

3 July 2016

0 Comments

With the 4th of July coming up tomorrow, have been thinking a lot about being an American. But rather than it being some sort of political post, or a post full of the kind of cliches that come out in droves this time of year, I want to give a personal perspective from the time […]

This Christian’s Response to the Orlando Shootings…

15 June 2016

0 Comments

I’ve waited several days to write this, for several reasons: to avoid the knee-jerk reactions that we’re seeing all around us; to collect my thoughts; to allow for additional information to come from the investigation; to not appear to be jumping on the bandwagon that so many in the media, in politics, and in social […]

The Obama Administration’s Transgender Directive…

14 May 2016

0 Comments

First and foremost, for the love of all that’s good, please read the actual letter rather than what the media (on either side) is reporting about it. I’ve uploaded to have available here to make that easier for you. Secondly, this post isn’t a response to the highly political directive, nor am I soliciting opinions on […]

The American Church is on the decline. Stats have shown that it’s been happening for decades, but there’s been a steeper decline in the past 7 years. And while plenty of  the factors are external to the church, there are also many from within. Some of these have been on my mind for years (some […]

Target’s Bigger Restroom Issue…

Target’s had a difficult week, in case you were hiding out in a cave and hadn’t noticed. On April 19th, they released a statement in reference to the political brouhaha in several states regarding transsexual use of bathrooms. It appears Target had apparently, in a bid to make quick, politically-correct political points in the presidential […]

Protests and Violence: My Story…

19 March 2016

0 Comments

The year was 2003, and the left’s protest du jour was anti-war and pro-peace. But there was a significant undercurrent to the protests that was anything but peaceful, and just like the current sets of protests…focused on disruption, intimidation, even violence, and were thoroughly funded. How do I know, you ask? Well, aside from watching […]

In Defense of Dr Ben Carson…

11 March 2016

0 Comments

Earlier today, Dr. Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump for President, surprising many. His detractors came out of the woodwork hard and fast, complaining that he’d betrayed his beliefs (both political and his faith) or that he undermined his (apparently former) polite demeanor. The harshest critics seem to be those that in the weeks previously had supported […]

This video is just too good–and accurate–to not share. Take a look and listen.

The Problem of Rachel Dolezal…

16 June 2015

0 Comments

Ok, I’ll admit it, straight off: the title is misleading. Because there’s not just a problem with Rachel Dolezal, but a whole host of them that I have neither the time or desire to address. The problem I do want to write about is the one that nobody seems to be asking. [That’s also misleading, […]

First, since this is likely the first visit to the site for almost all of you, and the first interaction with me as a constituent or citizen for just shy of that same amount, let me start with an introduction… As the domain name suggests, I am a dad. I have four precious kids that […]
