Progressives Christian theocracy

It’s Progressives, not conservatives, who want to turn America into a Christian theocracy

If one takes Progressives at their word about Jesus and politics, it is Progressives who are working to turn America into a Christian theocracy. If you go to Amazon’s Kindle bestseller list, you will see that the current bestseller is Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (see image, left). Atwood wrote The

@MuslimIQ mis-schools “white supremacist” on question about “Christian ISIS”

Fifty years of mis-education in American schools culminates when a lawyer provides a laundry list of myths to justify claiming the existence of a Christian ISIS. A couple of days ago, the internet was abuzz with excitement because Qasim Rashid (Twitter name @MuslimIQ), an attorney and Muslim, claiming to have

The Bookworm Beat 9/18/16 — the “people are singing” edition and open thread

The strong symbolism behind Trump’s Les Deplorables appearance. Back in the mid- to late-ish 1980s, I saw the San Francisco premiere of Les Misérables. I am sorry to report that it was entirely wasted on me. I’d never read Hugo’s book (still haven’t) and I’d actually never even heard of

The Bookworm Beat 7/6/16 — The Hillary Moves On edition and open thread

Now that we’re the Banana Republic of America, I think it’s time for the #NeverTrump crowd to have a little “Come To Jesus” talk to determine whether they want Hillary the Untouchable, and her entire Leftist panoply of friends and goals, in the White House, or whether they’re willing to

I’ve switched migraine medicines and have been a little limp and dazed, but the migraines are passing and my energy is returning — so what better thing to do than write a round-up? No, more Muslims will not save us from the ones we already have.  Daniel Greenfield takes up

The Bookworm Beat 4/21/16 — a round-up and open thread

My take on the decision to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 in place of Andrew Jackson?  I find all this change and revisionism both silly and expensive but, having said that, here’s my position:  They’re replacing the racist, slave-supporting, Indian-killing founder of the Democrat party with a gun-toting, Republican black

The bathroom wars highlight the difference between morality and victimization

The Washington Times published an excellent article pointing out the hypocrisy of Apple, PayPal, and other corporations boycotting North Carolina because the state said biological males and females should use separate restrooms in public places: PayPal drew a line in the sand when North Carolina enacted a law prohibiting people from

The Bookworm Beat 4/8/16 — the “discomfort” edition and open thread

Am I the only one who finds this sentence incredibly disturbing? The sentence comes from an article about Gloria Vanderbilt’s life and, more specifically, her sex life, which is the subject of a new documentary. The person behind the documentary is Anderson Cooper, Vanderbilt’s son, and noted gay TV personality

The Bookworm Beat 3/3/16 — the GOP crackup edition and open thread

I’ve been collecting articles for days, so I’ll try to share them with you as efficiently as possible in a single post.  My goal — no more than two sentences per recommended article. Ted Cruz is a decent human being.  Contrary to Rubio, Trump, and Ted’s former college roommate (who

Ted Cruz needs to explain to non-Evangelical voters that they need not fear him

Now that Ted Cruz, for the time being at least, is the front-runner, I’m starting to get emails from conservatives in Marin who are disturbed by his open expressions of Christian faith.  Just like their Progressive neighbors, they’re worried about finding themselves in a theocracy.  I therefore think Ted Cruz
