Greatest Hits: The Utility of Free Speech

The Utility of Free Speech:  While the left only allows speech that completely agrees with their own opinions, actual free speech has great value… As we all know, freedom of speech is under attack.  Mark Lloyd proposes to replace privately owned media with a government approved and moderated PBS.  Cass Sustein and Henry Waxman have both floated the idea of regulating Internet content.  Speech codes on campus restrict the free flows of ideas on college campuses.  The ACLU threatens to sue kids that pray at graduation ceremonies.  People are threatened if they pray in public.  Conversely, the left is able […]

Muslim Terrorists Try To Disrupt Texas ‘Draw Mohammad’ Free Speech Event, Get Killed In Attack

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. Two would be Muslim terrorists made to disrupt the free speech event held in Garland, Texas last night. The pair drove up to the event and started shooting at police stationed outside. One officer was slightly injured but the two Muslims were instantly put down in the attack. As of last night police were still investigating to see whether there was a bomb inside the car in which the pair drove to the event. The event held at The Curtis Culwell Center in Garland was the “Mohammad Art Exhibit and Contest” sponsored […]

Obamacare Tops Hot-Button Issues Soon Before Supreme Court

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Well, let’s don’t get our hopes up, I mean John Roberts is STILL on the bench, and he loved ObamaCare so much that he re-wrote the statute to twist it into being quasi-Constitutional… The Supreme Court will tackle a laundry list of high-profile cases during the first six months of the new year, including decisions on ObamaCare and other hot-button topics that could pose big challenges for both liberal and conservative interests. The looming decision on ObamaCare tops the list of controversial agenda items, reports the National Journal, but justices are also considering decisions […]

Coeur d’Alene Relents, Won’t Force Christian Ministers to Officiate Same-Sex “Weddings”

  Shine a light on tyranny, and tyranny slinks away. The city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, said a for-profit wedding chapel owned by two ministers doesn’t have to perform same-sex marriages. The city has been embroiled in controversy ever since the owners of the Hitching Post sued the city. They say a city anti-discrimination law threatened to force them to marry same-sex couples now that gay marriage is legal in Idaho. The story lit up conservative and gay-rights blogs. Wedding chapel owners Donald and Evelyn Knapp said they feared jail time or fines if they declined marriage services to a […]

Religious Liberty Dies in California, Churches are Forced to Pay for Elective Abortions

  Feminism’s holy sacrament of abortion will not be denied. The California Department of Managed Health Care hath decreed that all employers, including churches, must pay for elective abortions in their health insurance plans. A coalition of pro-life groups is challenging the mandate. A campaign against the state of California mandating abortion coverage in insurance plans is intensifying. Several complaints have been filed with the federal government to keep it from violating what Christian legal groups consider American’s fundamental rights and go against their religiously held beliefs and conscience. The Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all employers, including […]

City in Idaho Threatens to Arrest Christian Ministers Who Refuse to Perform Same-Sex “Weddings”

Houston’s homofascist lesbian mayor has a kindred spirit in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. And that means yet another assault on religious liberty. Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to $1,000 in fines, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court. Alliance Defending Freedom is representing Donald and Evelyn Knapp, two ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene. “Right now they are at risk of being prosecuted,” attorney Jeremy Tedesco told me. “The threat of enforcement is more […]

National Guard Banned from Vacation Bible School, Allowed to March in Gay Pride Parade

Have you ever attended Vacation Bible School? Around here, we call it VBS and it is the time of the year, usually during summer vacation from school, that children gather at a local, or not so much, school to learn about the Bible and the principles it teaches. In the case of the VBS put on by our church, it is some children’s only opportunity to attend an event that is both educational and uplifting. Not to mention, a lot of fun. During the week, representatives of the local police and fire departments, as well as the local paramedics. It […]

UConn Professor Shouts at Creationists to “Praise Darwin”

Hat/Tip to for this story of a UCONN Professor who goes “bananas” on a religious group who were simply exercising their 1st Amendment Rights to free speech.   University of Connecticut Anthropology Professor James Boster was caught on tape blasting three creationists for their beliefs. Tolerance in the state of Connecticut seems to be at an all time low this week. It was only Monday a professor at the Eastern Connecticut State University was also recorded via audio describing the GOP as racist and misogynistic. In a follow up to this story, Professor Boster claims he was “protecting” a […]

Of golf and a Christian nation

I think some of the looniest arguments or at least the most juvenile come from liberals bent on defending Barack Obama no matter what. For example taking Obama’s perpetual golfing get-a-ways,  I read recently where a liberal wrote that “right wing” presidents (referring to G.W. Bush) played golf just like Obama does. Sigh … “he did  it too!” … like toddlers playing in the back yard. Well, it is a fact that G.W. Bush played golf during his eight years (8) in office.  Twenty four (24) rounds in eight years as opposed to Obama’s nearly 150 rounds in five years. […]

Warnings from George Washington

I noticed the other day while scouring liberal web sites that one liberal in typical liberal fashion asked, “What happened to the ‘small arms treaty’ conservatives have been so paranoid about? You know, BIG government wants to take your guns! It appears it’s just like all the other paranoia right-wings are attracted to … nothing to it!” Now, that’s paraphrasing, but here is the actual post: Via: American Liberal Times Whatever Happened To The So-Called “U.N. Small Arms Treaty?” Not so long ago . . . in a land far far away . . . (The land where some “Righties” […]

Jesus Isn’t Allowed in School, but Islam is …

In my previous post, “Jesus is not allowed in school“, we saw the perfect example of how Christians and in particular Christian children are being bullied by the benevolent American education system. Time and again we get the “separation of church and state” line of crap. However it’s obvious that only applies to the Christian church or any mention of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas or Easter … Christian kids are not allowed to mention the name of Christ. (for the sake of ignorant liberals: Christmas is the celebration of Christ’s birth. Easter is the celebration of Christ’s […]

Catholic School Principal Canned for Allowing His Homosexual Partners to Sexually Abuse Students

You simply aren’t going to believe this.  In Ontario, a Catholic School principal has been stripped oh his license when it was discovered that he was allowing his homosexual partner to abuse children in the school.  Life Site News has more… THUNDER BAY, Ontario, August 9, 2013 ( – The former principal of a small Catholic school in northern Ontario has had his license revoked by the Ontario College of Teachers for ignoring the repeated sexual abuse of students by one of his homosexual partners. Jacques Perron was found guilty of “professional misconduct” earlier this year and was barred on Wednesday from […]

Taking America Back One Bit At A Time Part 1: Introduction

On November 26, 2012, I wrote a post titled Is It Time For Conservatives to Start Thinking Long Term? Support from my readers was less than I had hoped it would be. As part of that post, an article by Andrew Klavan was linked and I asked that readers review and share their opinions  on Klavan’s long view plan for taking back America. Klavan addressed three areas of gradual attack: bringing balance back to news media, bringing balance back to the entertainment industry, and bringing our Judeo-Christian God back into our culture. All lofty goals to be sure. For my part, I wrote […]

Let’s Talk: More Non-Religious People are Democrats, Anyone Surprised?

Recently, the Pew Research Center released the results of a survey indicating that one is five Americans describe themselves as non-religious. I’ll be handling this one a bit differently, as it is far reaching in it’s consequences.  But first, here are some excerpts from a Daily Caller article regarding this survey… According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, one in five Americans – the largest percentage in history — have no religious affiliation, and 63 percent of those people are registered Democrats. Pew’s data represent a trend from the last five years. … Among those who are moving away from traditional religious […]

Warnings About Communism From People That Lived Under it

Perhaps I should say, “emphasis on the ‘under it.”  As we all know, Communism in actual application is perhaps the most tyrannical killing machine ever devised by man.  Unfortunately, as we saw with OWS, many of those would-be Marxists deny that the deaths, starvation, or shortages occurred at all.  Fortunately for us, there are millions of people that lived under communism that can speak out on what really happened.  Glenn Beck interviewed several recently… Your browser does not support iframes. I wish there was a bit more, but I think the point is conveyed. But, as our friend Bezmmenov has told us, the truth means nothing to […]

Apparently, The Occupods Are Opposed to God: Disrupts Pro-Life Events, Harass Pro-Family Preacher

culture war

It’s well know that Occupiers have no love for Jews, often advocating for nasty things to happen to them.  However, it appears that they are also opposed to God as well.  Evidence, you ask?  For starters, here is some evidence from a recent Right to Life event… About two-dozen members of Occupy Providence hiked from Burnside Park to the 39th Annual Pro-Life State House Rally organized by the Rhode Island State Right to Life Committee on Thursday.  The pro-life organization’s executive director, Barth E. Bracy, told that, near the end of the rally, the Occupiers “strategically fanned out with […]

Questioning Global Warming Compared by Committee to Other 'Falacies' Like Believing in God: A Personal Story

Yesterday I attended a conference at a university in another state for the purposes of looking over a test that this university gives all future teacher candidates, and it was indeed an upsetting experience for me once again because of my conservative beliefs. The conference had about a dozen teachers and professors at it, all drawn from the social studies profession, and we spent the day looking over all of the items on a test that is given each year to graduating teacher candidates, making sure that the test items were valid questions to ask future teachers. The teachers on the committee […]

Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Wrap-up

Just as with the 9-12 protest last year, Glenn Beck has had a controversial event. It seems that the rally went off without a hitch, and there were no reports of arrests, hate crimes, or any other problems.  Of course, that won’t stop the left from inventing some over the next weeks or so. I was unable to watch the event in full, due to some family commitments.  However, I did catch some of the live stream, as well as the coverage on CSPAN.  All in all, I caught about 45 minutes of it, and I must say, it was […]
