Irreducible complexity

Irreducible complexity. That phrase gets a lot of attention in the creation-evolution debate, or the accident-design debate. As well it should. Irreducible complexity shows that life did not come about by accident, More »

Cowards and tyrants

When the brave men moved out, the cowards stayed behind.

The recent debacle in Iraq raises many questions: questions about whether or not we should have gone there; questions about the wisdom of pulling our troops out; questions about nation-building and spreading democracy. To be sure, all of these questions are legitimate. However, there is a side of this issue that has yet to be discussed: the role the coward plays in all of this.

Metropalistan Opera

A jihad opera about the Achille Lauro atrocity will still go on at last report.
Print Friendly

Canceling the simulcast of The Death of Klinghoffer does not exculpate any of the personnel affiliated with the opera if the show will be presented on stage as scheduled. Because Peter Gelb acknowledged the “genuine concern in the international Jewish community,” he is not oblivious to the impropriety. Yet he continues unimpeded. He may well be an active partner to the insult, an accomplice to Alice Goodman’s rejection of their mutual heritage. Or he lacks the capacity to see that this production should also be of enormous concern to the greater American community. It would appear that this may well rank with the Bavarian Oberammergau that continues to inspire antisemitism – but not only antisemitism. This perverted story is an act of jihad.

The Ten Commandments: antidote to communist ideology

I have recently been promoting a D.C. rally supporting traditional marriage. It raised several good questions from someone I love dearly. My answers may have seemed conflicted – or worse, hypocritical – but they were not. I believe everyone has a right to live their lives as they see fit. I also believe that no one has the right to impose their beliefs upon me, the church, or any other person or entity. To complicate matters more, I believe there is a right and there is a wrong way to live. These points of view can be hard to reconcile for many but not if processed through a biblical worldview.

Bearcats and cops: connected

A Nashville Sheriff's Police Bearcat. Sign of a police state?

Disturbing information has surfaced regarding MRAP and BearCat military vehicles being used to patrol the streets of our local communities – some with populations under 7,000. The MRAPs (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles) were designed to survive improvised explosive device attacks and ambushes. The BearCats (Ballistic Engineered Armoured Response Counter Attack Trucks, a product of the Lenco corporation) are a subset of MRAPs. They have seen service in special weapons and tactics (SWAT) squads, homeland security, counter-terrorism, force protection, and military policing missions. Willing police departments and sheriffs’ offices have enjoyed their new free toys without giving a thought to any strings that may be attached in the future but the protesting citizens (now labeled as “domestic terrorists” in Concord, NH) view these vehicles as highly objectionable and intimidating.

Cover up 2.0

The original cover up fell apart when someone looked hard at it. No one's looking hard enough today.
Print Friendly

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Cover up 2.0. Most of you, reading this today, will not recognize this as the second version. Cover up 1.0, for anyone who does remember, was Watergate. In the summer of 1972, Watergate stopped being the name of a famous hotel in Washington D.C. The name became a label for the most serious sort of government malfeasance. Watergate was about burglary, wiretapping, and theft of documents from political opponents and even from confidential professionals, specifically a psychiatrist. Cover up 2.0 is more serious. It is about using the taxing power to destroy political speech. But this time, Cover up 2.0 might succeed where Cover up 1.0 failed. The reason: the heroes that stopped Cover up 1.0 in 1972 1974 have no counterparts today.

Time’s Tyrants of the Year

It has been in every age that it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter, who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both, to deceive and overawe the People.

To the Staff of the Metropolitan Opera (the Met):

During World War II, a violinist dressed in military uniform went to play for the servicemen in a United States Army hospital in Italy. As he entered a ward designated for young men who had recently lost limbs, he was shocked to see that one patient was attempting to applaud with his only hand. As the musician’s face lit up with compassion and sensitivity, he raised his violin and played. His name was Jascha Heifetz, a Lithuanian-born Jewish American whose 65-year career began at age four. He made his Carnegie Hall debut at age 16, and became world renowned for the perfection to which other violinists still aspire.
