Faith in a Fig Leaf
- By Ben Graydon
It’s not in the Bible, yet Christian people believe that “going to” or “becoming a member of” it is something that they are supposed to do … that doing those things is part of their relationship to God in that He, somehow, requires it of them. In fact, many do so as their primary means of relating to Him. Which is weird. For going to church to do business with God is about like going to McDonalds to develop a relationship with a farmer. It is, in fact, a fig leaf.

The Court Is Not Going to End Abortion, So Here’s What We Do
- By Erick Erickson - The Resurgent
Pro-life Americans could be excused for overestimating the importance of recent changes on the U.S. Supreme Court. They have endured one of the most mind-numbing legal battles in the history of modern man, arguing that it shouldn’t be legal for a medical professional to murder tiny human beings while being consistently thwarted by supposedly friendly judges who seem intent on maintaining a status quo that is outdated, unscientific, unconstitutional, immoral, and horrifically bad jurisprudence.

False Roads to Justice and Peace
- By Mike Scruggs
Self-righteous Virtue-signaling in American Politics
There is a strange misapprehension of morality and righteousness among our political and media classes that is spreading injustice, division, and hypocrisy like wildfire. Although its practitioners often purport themselves to be on high moral ground, the level of their distortions and the intensity of hatred in their continual accusatory rhetoric speaks otherwise. Its devotees are often armed with mesmerizing verbal fluency accompanied by ignorance and little regard for facts or a heart for truth. The spreading malady is not confined to one political party or to one race. The Church has not guarded well against its entry into its clergy or flock.

Father, Forgive Them, For They Do Know What They Do!
- By W.H. Lamb
“And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary (the skull), there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do….” - Luke 23:33-34
I heard my mother talking with someone she called “doctor”. Their words were muffled and difficult to understand in my condition. I heard my mother asking her “doctor” if I would feel any pain. I heard him reply that he really didn’t know with certainty if I would feel pain or not, since he was unaware of any scientific evidence one way or the other, but that he was sure that I wouldn’t. I heard my mother ask her “doctor” whether or not he ever thought about whether people in my condition felt pain when he did the “medical procedure” on them—the same one he was about to do on me.

The FDA's Assault on Tobacco Consumers
- By Sheldon Richman
Early one morning last December, Jeff Gracik was heading to his Southern California home's garage-workshop, where he makes his living, when he heard a loud, hurried knock on his front door. Thinking it might be a rushed UPS driver, he quickly opened the door. But it wasn't UPS. Standing on his doorstep were three badge-flashing inspectors from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. They had come to inspect Jeff's business.
Just what is Jeff's business? Does he produce food? No. Does he produce drugs? No again. So why the unannounced visit by FDA inspectors?

The Green Raw Deal
- By Erick Erickson - The Resurgent
Democrats in the House of Representatives have rolled out what they are calling a “Green New Deal.” It is the most serious public policy offering from Generation Tide Pod Eater to ever be unveiled. It is exactly what you would expect.
In the rollout of their deal, the Democrats released an outline that summarized their legislation. It included such gems as “When JFK said we’d go to the by the end of the decade, people said impossible.” You might think I left out the word “moon” and a few other choice words. You would be wrong. The Democrats left those out. There is also this one: “we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows.”
