I wrestle intellectually from time to time with the issue of god and gender. Maybe you do, too. Over time, I’ve grown skeptical about the importance of gender to divinity, as gender seems like a human issue, whereas God, to me, is unfathomably beyond that. Even if gender is “just” a construction, it’s an incredibly […]
Secular progressive leftists and their eco-alarmist fellow travelers are normally hostile to expressions of Christian faith. But, occasionally, when Pope Francis and his Vatican “experts” come out with a statement seemingly supporting collectivist and eco-alarmist dogma, their natural enemies exploit it to the hilt, as if it came directly from Gaia and/or Marx. The Pope is making a big mistake, much bigger and much farther reaching than the one made by the Pope who condemned Galileo.

Dear Readers: I was going to save this article for Sunday Morning’s “religious” column, but decided to publish it today because of assholes like Justin Trudeau, who keep saying that Islam is a religion of peace! We took a detailed look at both Christianity and Islam in my book “The Plain Truth About God” and […]
“Some men just want to watch the world burn!” Folks, I don’t know if it’s just me and I’m missing something, or perhaps there is an agenda I’m not aware of, or maybe even a point about human psychology that is foreign to me, but I’m really confused about these Islamic radicals and what they’re […]
