Bake the Cake?

24 Jan., 2018 What will the Supremes say?  Will they treat the bakers like they treated baby advocates? They are to hear the plea of those Christian bakers in  Oregon.  SCOTUS is weak in its opinions because it has forsaken (divine) Justice.  Having rejected the Law as the guide for what is right and just […]

Use-of-Force Apologetics

23 December, 2016 Anno Domini How is a Pro-lifer to Repond to Questions about “Acts of Violence”? “How can he justify the destruction of property to save a baby?” they say behind my back – I know.

23 Skidoo, Shelley!

21 December, 2016 On September 8, 1995, federal Judge James A. Redden sentenced Shelley to twenty years consecutive to the eleven years to which the Kansas state court had sentenced her. “Though I am loathe to call anyone a terrorist,” Redden declared, “you are a terrorist.”  Scram!
