Rowling embraced the Christian sanctity of life, understanding that death was an evil, and expressed hope for repentance and forgiveness of sins, this late coming play, written by […]

Freedom Is Not Born from Evil

The subtle, evil coercion of lies I was told, and expected to believe as true, from the women’s movement over our reproductive rights came to encompass my ensuing years in solitary confinement.

Republicans, Do Not Take My Vote for Granted!

I am certain that as many Republican politicians gather around their Thanksgiving table they will offer thanks for the recent elections. Of course, they should first bow their heads and humbly offer their public service for the Glory of God.

Proclaiming Life: Preborn vs. Unborn

We live in a world of conundrums. The pro-life movement is a perfect example. During the news coverage of the March for Life rally in Washington DC, I was struck by the term that many pro-life advocates continue to use when speaking about a child in the womb: unborn. Of all the prefixes that we […]
