Pity Roy Moore’s Wife

As the shameful revelations of Roy Moore’s past continue to snowball, I can’t help feeling sorry for his wife, Kayla (pictured with her husband). In fact, I feel sorry for all the wives and girlfriends of the myriad celebrities and politicians being shamed by women who accuse them of sexual assault. Some of the men […]

“Decency” Under Attack

  Ideas I have accepted unquestionably all my life are under attack. Not just in America but worldwide, “the people” seem to be rejecting my concepts of good and evil. In America “the people” have chosen to follow Trump and the Republicans. And our new rulers are leaving no doubt about their path forward. It’s going to be […]

Devils Who Quote Scripture

We can’t say we weren’t warned. The Bible is replete with ominous references to the Devil masquerading as a prophet of God. And it seems as if today’s religions are providing ample evidence of this soul chilling phenomenon. I am not just talking about aberrations like ISIS. I am including Christian religions also. History is bloodstained with […]

Rise of an Empty Suit

  Tonight’s the night. The night that could decide the fate of Donald Trump’s bizarre candidacy… that could send Jeb! back to his Miami mansion. .. that could signal the emergence of a new Republican star… No, not Ben Carson.  Gentle Ben has all the voters he is ever going to get – the Bible thumpers, […]

Single-Source Journalism

  Reporters used to learn very early in their careers to get at least two sources for their story. A single source is often misleading, sometimes deliberately so. It’s been a couple of days since that horrible mass shooting in Oregon and investigators are only now sorting out the details. Yet the media were full of […]

The Vermont senator, who is a candidate for the presidency, praised the Pope in an email I received this morning. He […]

The Pope’s Miracle

  I’m sure you’ve heard Christ’s miracles rationalized. The miracle of the loaves and fishes, for example. You will hear that it was the spirit of sharing inspired by Jesus that resulted in the feeding of the multitude, not some magical expansion of those five loaves and two small fishes. And, surely, you have heard that […]

The Springsteen Paradox

  In any society where personal freedom is prized, you are bound to find ironic contradictions. Like the freedom to try and curtail the personal freedom of others. And you will find that contradiction today in America as a large and growing movement seeks to impose the will of its members on the rest of […]

Islam’s Hidden Face

My brother Bill sent me an interesting email he got from a friend; it was titled “Islam is Not a Religion.” I don’t profess to know what a religion is but after reading the email I have to agree that Islam doesn’t seem to be like any religion that I recognize. The email quotes Theologian […]

Pope Francis Exposes those “Whited Sepulchers”

When I was 16 I won an essay competition on “Our Way to Peace” by suggesting Mankind heed the words of Jesus Christ. In the 63 years since that time my opinion remains unchanged. I am still convinced that Jesus of Nazareth laid out a road map to peace on earth, not just the path […]
