The Yellow Prison Bus and the Future of American Healthcare

Conservatives are up-in-arms over the Democratic healthcare scheme.  From town hall meetings, to talk radio, to the internet, the voice of the people is being heard.  However, I am not at all convinced that the voice of the people will ultimately make a difference in the long run.  My pessimism has less to do with the sinister motives of those seeking to take over the healthcare system.  On the contrary, my pessimism stems from the hypocrisy of those shouting down their representatives and claiming to be “fed up”.     While I’m sure these folks mean well, I wonder about the ...

A Sickening Healthcare Call!

As the debate about healthcare rages, religious “leaders” are weighing in.  In a recent teleconference, pastors from around the country gathered to discuss the issue with the White House (and record it for later non-partisan use).  As I listened to the call, I had to fight to keep from hitting the stop button.  The call began with a prayer led by a female pastor from Georgia (one of several female ministers, deacons and church leaders in what was an obvious nod to feminists, and the theological and political left) then descended into sob stories about the need for universal healthcare ...

What He Must Be Featured on Family Life Today

Several weeks ago I sat down in the Family Life Today studio in Little Rock, AR to record a couple of segments on my new book, What He Must Be:  IF He Wants to Marry My Daughter.  Those segments turned into three or four shows.  Those shows will air on Family Life Today beginning Monday, August 17th.  It was an incredible joy to spend the day with the Family Life staff, and I think the interviews were fantastic.  Tune in to hear more about the new book, and don’t miss my daughter, Jasmine’s cameo.  Many people ask me ...

As an exponent of Home Education, I often find myself engaged in the same arguments over and over again.  It seems there are not many “arguments” for Christians sending their children to government schools (once you answer the ‘Salt and Light’ argument, the ‘what happens if all the Christians leave?’ argument, and the ‘educational antinomianism’ argument, there’s not much to say).  However, one argument that one hears on the rarest of occasions is the ‘superiority of government education’ argument.  It seems some people have not gotten the memo and still believe the myth of home-educated imbeciles walking around who ...

Is it Over? (Reprint from November 5, 2008 with Comments)

The Day after the election, I wrote a blog that received a great deal of criticism.  It turns out I was supposed to be so happy that  black man won the presidency that there was no room for criticism.  However, as the current healthcare debate deteriorates into ad hominem attacks and accusations of racism, I just had to reprint the following post: The people have spoken.  Barack Hussein Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States of America.  The Left Wing press is ecstatic, white guilt has been assuaged, Affirmative Action has been vindicated, and socialist Europe ...
