The Coming Battle For A Seat On The Supreme Court

With the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the administration, congress, and activist groups around the country are gearing up for the battle ahead. The senate, with it's filibuster mentality on the left, pitted against the conservative concrete of the right, is setting the stage for what could be a low point in the history of our country.
And, at the head of the table sits President Bush - what will he do now?

Can You See The Signs?

It's one of the more conspicuous road signs on U.S. 27, a scenic route that meanders through the Daniel Boone National Forest on its way to a popular recreational area on Lake Cumberland.

Has The High Court Hit A New Low?

The Supreme Court's decision on Kelo v. City of New London erases the principle of private property from 200 years of American history. There can be no question that the founders intended private property to be secure from the arbitrary reach of government. The Constitution sets forth the legitimate purposes for which the government may own property (Article I, Section 8), and it stipulates the process by which private property must be acquired. Moreover, the Fifth Amendment requires that just compensation be paid when private property is taken for public use.

It's Hard To Be Like Jesus...

Trust does not eliminate the bad things that may happen, whatever sparked our fear in the first place. Trust simply finds a new outlet for anxiety and a new grounding for confidence: God. Let God worry about the worrisome details of life, most of which are out of my control anyway. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God," Paul wrote. "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 4:6-7).

To Judge, Or Not To Judge...

Even people who know very little about the Bible are usually familiar with Jesus' saying "Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1, KJV). This command is part of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount; it is Jesus' most popular saying because our culture values tolerance so highly.
But it is usually ripped out of context and misinterpreted.

The Silent Coming of Socialism to America

Addictive adult devotions to schools and extracurricular activities, rigorous physical training of children are common place in our society. And yet too many of us remain totally unaware of the Socialist curriculum and the dumbing-down of our children, unaware of the compulsory mental health screening and profiling assessments that will soon be our reality.

Turning Hallways Into Battlefields?

This is the road we're travelling on... and it's extremely disturbing. We live in a culture of death, and those who support such a culture seem to have our courts on their side!

If You Don't Pray Like I Pray, Then You Can't Pray At All

I, for one, am sick and tired of these minority groups who feel that, because they are in the minority, their right to religious expression should trump my own. Since when does anyone have the right to tell someone else how they should pray? Yet, for years now, this has been the trend in the United States. When will the insanity stop?

We Need to Remember, Even When It's Hard

War is a terrible thing. No doubt about it. Throughout history, mankind has continually fought and killed one another over a variety of issues, political, religious and otherwise.
As the United States survives to celebrate another Independance Day, we should put aside our philosophical arguments and take a moment to remember those among us who've given their lives so that we may enjoy the freedoms we have today... for we may not have those freedoms tomorrow.
