TV Series Review: Call the Midwife

CallTheMidwifeby Brad Nelson   1/20/14
There is the distinct possibility that watching this will lower your testosterone level. But that’s not to say that Call the Midwife is necessarily a chick flick. Whatever it is, it is quite well done. More » • (1793 views)

Revolutionary Success

OldFlagby Timothy Lane   1/20/14

The Dream Castle of Oz

amosozby Glenn Fairman   1/19/14
In the wake of Ariel Sharon’s passing, amidst the many glowing and disparaging words that have ever been uttered about this true Israeli battlefield hero and unwavering politician, it is surprising that the following quote I came upon by Jewish poet/novelist Amos Oz’ scalds my sensibilities so: More » • (1772 views)

Book Review: Four Blood Moons

BloodMoonby Deana Chadwell    1/18/14
Not long ago I stood in the parking lot at church with the rest of the evening congregation and stared at the moon. It was blood red. I’d never seen one before – it was the eeriest, most chilling spectacle. I almost expected it to start dripping. More » • (4017 views)

Book Review: “Abraham Lincoln: The True Story of a Great Life” by William Herndon and Jesse Weik

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu   1/17/14
I had heard about this book many years back, but had never seen it in bookstores. Maybe this was because most of the bookstores I frequented were in Asia. However using that miracle of the modern age, Kindle, I was able to download both volumes of this biography for free. In this review I will deal with the first volume. More » • (1737 views)

Grace in Weakness

BigRockThumbby Glenn Fairman   1/16/14
“Blessed are the poor in spirit for they shall inherit the kingdom of Heaven” — Matthew 5:3  •  How counter-intuitive this statement is to the spirit of the world! Christ has not chosen the “winners” in the Lottery of Power to manifest Himself through. More » • (2600 views)

Thus Spake the Potheads

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   1/14/14
It’s starting to appear as if marijuana users have become the homosexual lobby of the chemically dependent. What do I mean? Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson could mention one sexual behavior (adultery) as disqualifying someone from the “kingdom of God,” but mentioning that “other” sexual behavior? More » • (2127 views)
