So, Christian, Now What?

Well, here is a little list: Give thanks to God. We should not have wanted a man like Trump to be president but we should also not have wanted a woman like Hillary even more. So, give thanks that it is not as bad as it could have been, but be humble enough to admit […]

Lesser Of Two Evils Nonsense

Christians must steadfastly reject any candidate that wants to take taxpayer dollars to spill the blood of children.

Fat And Happy Marriage

What qualifies me to say anything about fat and happy marriages? Well, hopefully I have one. Perhaps our marriage is not “fat and happy” maybe we are on our way there and currently in the “chunky and cheery” category. Well, my wife and I have been married for five years now, six this May, look […]
