Divided America: Good cannot unite with evil.

Divided countries fall while united countries stand or erupt into civil war. The problem with uniting Americans is the belief that this is a fight of good versus evil.

We cannot have unity without compromising our basic coreContinue reading “Divided America: Good cannot unite with evil.”

Eating of Pork and Religion

I grew up on a farm that raised cattle and sheep. Our neighbors down the road had hogs and dairy cows. My family still raises cattle and their neighbors still have dairy cows. People around here do still have goats, sheep, hogs, horses, and chickens. Needless to say, I am not a vegetarian. The majorityContinue reading “Eating of Pork and Religion”

Would it be considered rude to tell the Bible Bangers on social media to shut the hell up already? Women were not all happy in the 1950s. It was not a magical and wonderful time for a lot of women.

When WWII ended and men returned home in the late 1940s, women were fired and sent home. It was too late. Rosie the Riveter had already shown women there was more to life than diapers and baby talk. Men were the bread winners of the household during the 1950s. If a woman worked, she wasContinue reading “Would it be considered rude to tell the Bible Bangers on social media to shut the hell up already? Women were not all happy in the 1950s.

God’s plan and our plan are not always the same. Sometimes God says no to our prayers.

The Bible is confusing when it talks about prayer. Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask for in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. Mark 11:24 Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it shall be yours. John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name,Continue reading “God’s plan and our plan are not always the same. Sometimes God says no to our prayers.”

My Years of Being a Manager of a National Retail Bookstore Changed How I View People.

Having and Voicing an Opinion Does Not Mean You Are Angry. It Will Not Begin the Apocalypse.

Rural communities are great in that most people go to church, have fairly high morals and ethics, and are generally peaceful people. They’re rich with tradition and are all about appearances and what is considered proper. God help you if you’re one of us who has an opinion about, well, everything. I am the personContinue reading “Having and Voicing an Opinion Does Not Mean You Are Angry. It Will Not Begin the Apocalypse.”

A Lack of Christian Fathers and Role Models Has Failed Our Daughters and Young Women. Porn and the Media.

There was no internet porn and nude or mostly nude calendars when the Bible was written. However, if you actually read the Bible, it’s pretty clear that porn isn’t something God approves for men or women. Neither are calendars of mostly nude or nude 18 year old GIRLS. Strip clubs, prostitutes, hook-ups etc are allContinue reading “A Lack of Christian Fathers and Role Models Has Failed Our Daughters and Young Women. Porn and the Media.”
