Christian Baker Sued For Refusing to Provide Custom-Made Lawsuit to Customer

Masterpiece Cakeshop Owner Jack Phillips finds himself in legal trouble once again after he refused to provide a trans-activist with a custom-made lawsuit from his cake shop located in Lakewood, Colorado. “I’m so hurt,” cried Alexxa de Ville with an emotional strength seemingly strong enough to change fundamental principles of American law. “So many people got…

Trust Me, Love

Below is a poem I wrote for a contest. They allow publishing on a personal blog, so I might as well make use of that. It’s about fighting in a relationship, and how that feels, and what you think when it’s happening, and how love sometimes makes things hurt worse, not less, and how ambiguous…

Why I’m Neo-Medieval, Part I

Dusting off an Old Image “Medieval man shared many ignorances with the savage, and some of his beliefs may suggest savage parallels to an anthropologist. But he had not usually reached these beliefs by the same route as the savage.” – The Discarded Image, C.S. Lewis, Page 1. Such begins C.S. Lewis’s book The Discarded…

California’s AB 2943 Is Even Worse Than They Say It Is

“AB 2942 moves through the California Assembly, and is set to ban conversion therapy in California.” I read this and was slightly confused, as I knew conversion therapy was already banned in California. I saw many headlines about banning books and censoring the Bible. “That’s a little crazy,” I thought. I wanted to know if this…

The Hidden Heavenly Theme of Narnia

A Fantastic Discovery I join Eric Metaxas in proclaiming that the greatest literary discovery in the past century is that of Dr. Michael Ward in his 2010 books The Narnia Code and Planet Narnia. I use the word “discovery” quite literally. It was completely unknown, and it has now opened up an entire world of knowledge…

Home For Christmas: A Christmas Poem

***Here’s a poem I wrote for the season. No, it’s not autobiographical, and no, it’s not supposed to make any theological or cultural point. It’s mainly just supposed to make you cry as you sip strong eggnog. Any illustrators out there think they could make it into a book for next year? What do you…

My Pictures of the Great American Eclipse, August 21, 2017

Slightly different post today, it’s mostly all media. But to gain traffic on google, maybe I should just write eclipse, eclipse, eclipse a bunch of times. Plus pictures. Eclipse pictures. Awesome pictures. Eclipse. Okay enough of that. So: I am not a photographer. I hardly consider myself an amateur photographer. I mainly consider myself a…

A Serious Legal Issue Bubbling under the Surface…..

There is a serious issue brewing in our American justice system. Though most never encounter this arbitrary despotism of our government overlords, you can talk to anyone who’s been to law school, and they will let you in on this incredible tyranny. And I plan to be the one to free us from this rule….

Regain Your Sense: This “Collusion” Thing is Not a Crime

Cue Scary Music…. In the not so distant past, the immediate relative of a United States president, believing that the leader of the other party was dastardly and crooked, sent a message to a Russian operative, telling them that if Russia would intervene in the American campaign for president, this rich fellow from the Northeast…

Correcting the News on Hobby Lobby

Here is a letter of correction I wrote to the NPR politics Podcast, after listening to their Thursday July 6th edition reporting on Hobby Lobby’s settlement over the civil forfeiture complaint. This story has been widely reported, and often falsely reported. (But this shouldn’t surprise anyone.) So, I thought I’d share it with everyone, just…

We Have A Broken Society, and That Is Hard to Fix

The Delicate Edifice of Peace A man drove from a St. Louis suburb in Illinois to Alexandria, Virginia. He stayed a while until going to a baseball field where Congressmen rose early to practice for their upcoming Congressional Baseball Game. It is a fundraiser for various charities including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America….
