The Battle Continues…

Sometimes I wonder if the battles are winnable. Today I am encouraged that they are. Let me explain. In my 50+ years on this planet, I have seen a tearing down of accepted values.  Not all at once, but one bit at a time. 20 years ago I noticed the contrast in what was acceptable in Christmas programs performed in school when my kids had their Christmas music program in the public school located about an hour away, in a rural community.  Traditional Christian Christmas Caroles were included, like “Go Tell It On The Mountain” and “Silent Night”.  A...

Mortal or Eternal Answers?

As I write this, the headlines in the news continue to make people wonder what this world is coming to. From CNN: Two Students Wounded, One in Critical Condition as they claim we’ve had our 17th school shooting in America this year.

The Purpose of The Law

This weeks mass shooting is brought to you by the radical right and the National Rifle Association, said the meme after yet another tragedy. The outcry for sensible gun laws to stop events like this were all over the TV screens and small screens via social media and the mainstream media. It just feels like we need to do something and we aren’t, say some of my conservative but atheist friends. So the call to our duly elected national leaders goes out once again to pass universal background checks, stop the sale of high capacity weapons and what ever...
