What Happened Tonight

No matter who you voted for, not matter how much your heart is breaking or how much your heart is celebrating, let us remember: God is sovereign. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is […]

I’m frustrated!

I’ve been to a lot of sporting events and a lot of ceremonies where the American Anthem was played. Not once did I place my hand over my heart. I haven’t done that since I said the pledge of allegiance in high school. I guess that makes me an unpatriotic Muslim running for president. In […]

Obama on Faith

In the wake of the controversy surrounding Barack Obama and his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, I thought I would resurrect an old idea I had for a post back in January: Obama on Faith. The Audacity of Hope is not a fast or easy read by any stretch. Some chapters flew by, and others […]

Say what you will about the three remaining candidates running for president, but no one can deny this election year has changed everything. Read this and tell me I’m wrong. HT to Landon.

For the Democratics that are Undecided

Chris Matthews recently interviewed a supporter of Barack Obama and a supporter of Hillary Clinton. Obama’s support flubbed in a major way – see the video over at Kansas Bob‘s. A response to Kansas Bob is located here: Is Barack Obama an empty suit? It doesn’t get much better than this.

Observations on the Iowa Caucuses

On the Republican side: 1.) Huckabee comes across as very, very sincere. There is something about him that makes me want to believe him, to trust him. This frightens me a little, because I don’t know what that “something” is. Maybe I’ve underestimated mannerisms compared to words spoken, because he didn’t say much of substance […]

Hucka-wha?

Huckabee’s Remarkable Play My cousin over at confession of a slacker mom made her decision a while back to support Huckabee in the coming election, and I had the chance to hear her reasons why over drinks at Christmas time. (The only time I stand to talk politics. The drinks part, not the Christmas part.) […]

Shut Up and Sing

I’m ashamed to say that back in 2003 I was mad at Natalie Mains for saying what she did. I was equally mad at Toby Keith for being stupid. I didn’t buy either album as I’m not much of a country music fan (of the two artists, I definately like the Dixie Chicks music better […]

The Perfect Christian

When a high-profile evangelical Christain leader has a high-profile failure, we all respond differently. I’ve been reading about Jay Bakker, son of the Jim and Tammy Faye, who’s the pastor of a church called Revolution. It’s a small church that holds a casual service in a Brooklyn bar. He started filming a reality show called […]
