Blind Squirrel Finds A Supreme Court Nut

While in the vast majority of their constitutionally related writings the Founding Fathers were explicit that the judicial branch of government is effectively the weakest of the three, such is not the case with today’s modern misapplication. Americans currently live under what is, for all intents and purposes, a counter-constitutional judiciocracy led by nine unelected, black-robed autocrats.

Over many decades, the other two branches of government, the legislative and the executive, have, for some inexplicable reason, acquiesced to the notion of judicial supremacy – a dangerously dominant concept that erroneously regards the United States Supreme Court as the final arbiter of all things public policy. If this is so, then these nine men and women are ultimately unaccountable to anyone or anything, and the other two branches of government are but toothless figurehead bodies merely spinning their wheels while spending our dollars.

Atheist Group Calls For ‘Booing,’ ‘Blowing Raspberries’ To Disrupt Prayer

In an unhinged response to Monday’s Supreme Court decision in Greece v. Galloway – which reaffirmed Americans’ First Amendment right to public prayer, to include sectarian prayer – the always entertaining Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has announced its retaliatory “path forward” for Christ-haters.

Saul Alinsky would be proud.

On its website, the Christophobic FFRF, headquarter in Madison, Wisconsin, posted a member essay calling the High Court’s decision, “disastrous for state-church separation,” and frantically warned, “This decision could be the equivalent of Dred Scott or Plessy for our [anti-Christian] cause.”

The Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson decisions, of course, upheld slavery and racial segregation respectively. This is richly ironic considering that groups like the FFRF, the ACLU,

‘Gay’ Bishop Pretend Pretend Divorces Pretend Husband

The first openly gay Episcopal bishop, who became a symbol for gay rights far beyond the church while deeply dividing the world’s Anglicans, plans to divorce his husband.

Bishop Gene Robinson has never been fully accepted within the more than 70 million-member Anglican Communion, which is rooted in the Church of England and represented in the United States by the Episcopal Church.

Robinson announced the end of his marriage to Mark Andrew in an email sent to the Diocese of New Hampshire, where he served for nine years before retiring in 2012.

OK, first the pink elephant in the room. All of you “bigoted,” “homophobic,” “anti-gay” opponents of “marriage equality” who happen to live in “marriage reality,” please join me as we set aside, for the moment, the inescapable cognitive dissonance associated with the Huxleyan turn of phrase: “plans to divorce his husband.”

Donald Sterling Should Be Flayed Alive!

A $2.5 million fine, a lifetime ban from the NBA and potential confiscation of his personal property through the forced sale of the L.A. Clippers? Are you kidding? That’s it? Donald Sterling is a racist pig. “First stone” first shmone. This thing ain’t over by a long shot.

As CBS reports, “Donald Sterling’s lifetime ban from the NBA isn’t enough, NAACP says.” Al Sharpton agrees, adding, “No one should be allowed to own a team if they have in fact engaged in this kind of racial language.” Sharpton warns that he is “prepared … to rally in front of the NBA headquarters if this matter is not immediately dealt with.”

Sharpton says that a racist bigot like Sterling shouldn’t “be allowed to own a team.” Let’s take Sharpton’s demand to its reasonable and logical end. Should anyone with any unpopular or otherwise politically incorrect opinion whatsoever be allowed to own anything?

Does God Love A Homosexual?

As a Pastor and Professor of biblical studies, I reach out to the lost through various social media venues. Recently, I encountered a question that I feel led to share along with my response.

The question: “I have been living with a man for _ years and I am in love with him. Does Jesus love me even though I am a homosexual?”

My response:

God’s love is unconditional. Because Jesus is God, my answer is: yes. Jesus loves you unconditionally. In chapter 8 of the Gospel of John, Jesus is confronted by some of the Sanhedrin (Israel’s ruling body in the 1st century). They drag a woman caught in the very act of adultery before Jesus asking Him to judge her fate. The Jewish Law clearly stipulated that she and her counterpart must be stoned to death.
