Jesus Didn’t Vote—But You Should!

Jesus Didn’t Vote—But You Should!

Maybe the Silent Majority Does Stand with Trump?

Maybe the Silent Majority Does Stand with Trump?

Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States on June 16, 2015. If I’m honest, I thought it was a publicity stunt that would be short lived. I mean, I loved the Donald on “The Apprentice”—the dramatic board room scenes, the teflon Don telling would-be apprentices: “You’re Fired” and all those facial […]

Who’s On the Throne?

Who’s On the Throne?

Everyone knows who should, and who should not, sit on the throne. If the throne is in Buckingham Palace, we expect the Queen of England to take the throne…not some random visitor to the palace. If the throne is in the Oval Office, we look for the President of the United States…not one of the White House interns. If the throne is in a court of law, we […]
