Ronald Reagan, commemorating the 40th Anniversary of D-Day, gave one of the most inspiring speeches of his presidency. Sitting before him were the survivors of the assault on the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc. Watch Reagan’s address on that day. These are words that every American should know, but sadly, our children are not taught them. http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/ronaldreaganddayaddress.html
I am of the opinion that, Biblically, there is only one race, and that it is called “human.” Man is the one who has invented the idea of different races. In fact, we are all beings made in the image of God. Externals such as skin color are not that important. Yet we make them important to our detriment. If we are Christians, that is our primary identity. Everything else is secondary to that. The real division in the world… Read more »
Perhaps the most disheartening development in this election was the specter of some pro-lifers voting for Obama. One gropes for analogies: animal rights activists clubbing seals? radical environmentalists burning a forest? How can this be? How can a pro-lifer, particularly a pro-lifer who claims to be a Christian, violate one of the most easily discerned commandments of God–never take the life of an innocent person? I’ve heard the rationales. “Well, I can’t be a single-issue voter; abortion is only one… Read more »
This is what happens when Biblical principles are no longer our foundation.
So, the election is over. America has made its choice. The American people will now have to live with that choice for at least four years.

Yet I don’t think he ever clearly understood the Obama threat. Is Obama really an honorable man? Should we congratulate him on his victory? Christians are not… Read more »
Noted British historian Paul Johnson titled one of his chapters in his book Modern Times “America’s Suicide Atempt.” Johnson was talking about the 1960s and 1970s. Assassinations (John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King), the Vietnam War, race riots in the cities and student riots on campuses, the entire Watergate fiasco, and the miserable economy of the 1970s were his targets. We can add Roe v. Wade to that list. It was as if America had lost its mind. Today… Read more »
My wife, Jan, and I attended the Sarah Palin rally held near our home in Lakeland this past Saturday. We also attended one in nearby Kissimmee the previous weekend. Normally, I don’t get too excited about going to political rallies. I’m one of those people who prefers to stay at home and avoid large crowds. But I am glad I went to these two events. First, it was an encouragement to see so many people with the same concerns and… Read more »
