“He’s President, Not a Pastor” Is a Great Cop Out

&

I was going to avoid the subject, but after reading this excellent piece from Jonah Goldberg, I think I do want to say one thing. Morality of the person matters. Dennis Prager is a brilliant man and he has been consistent, going back to Bill Clinton, that the morality of a leader does not matter. Adultery does not matter. The policies do.

Scientology & The President: Leah Remini May Have a Surprising New Ally

S

One of the most fascinating documentary series to hit television in a long time is Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. The Emmy-winning show, which just wrapped up its second season, has done a tremendous job exposing the heartbreaking abuses at the hands of the church, as well as the great lengths Scientology has gone to cover them up.

Beer | Crafted: Beer+Faith+Community

B

The pastor of a small church plant in Missoula, Montana discovered small, unmet needs in the community around him; shoveling snow for those homebound, helping relocate those caught in an abusive relationship, being community for those without community. But the work needed support to continue. What better way to raise support than by brewing a specialty beer? A beer for the common man. A beer fit...

Bake This Particular Cake, Bigot

B

The American media would have you believe there is a concerted effort among Christians in America to discriminate against gay Americans. “No gays allowed,” they claim small Christian business owners are saying. It is a fiction created to avoid dealing with the facts.
