Georgia Bureacrats Run Amok in Maniacal Ignorance of Religious Freedom

Last year Governor Nathan Deal vetoed a reasonable bill to defend religious freedom in Georgia. He knew about instances of Georgia government leaders making decisions relying on political correctness instead of the law.

Early in Governor Deal’s administration, the Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources ordered that all Gideon Bibles be removed from the hotel rooms of state park lodges and hotels. Governor Deal, himself, had to step in to overturn that foolish decision.

Now, the State of Georgia is entangled in a federal discrimination lawsuit. The suit was filed by an African American former District Health Director for the Department of Public Health in 2014.

Dr. Eric Walsh came with stellar commendations from his position in California. He happens to be a 7th Day Adventist lay minister. Continue reading

Preachers and Politics – No Subject is Off Limits

Be assured, God is not deaf to the cries of the millions of innocent babies callously killed as if a sacrifice to the god of convenience. Then as if mere killing was not enough, Planned Parenthood and other organizations determined that if they killed the baby is just the right manner, they could butcher the body and sell the parts to highest bidder.

Our nation cannot continue down this path and expect that there will not be consequences from the just and righteous Creator who watched over us and formed this nation of freedom. Do not think for a moment that the great United States of America cannot fall under God’s judgment. Continue reading

Donald Trump – “I Will Appoint Pro-Life Judges”

In the final debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, both candidates were asked to give an impromptu one minute closing statement. Moderator Chris Wallace explained that there had been no plan for the candidates to prepare a closing statement.

Donald Trump delivered the best summation of his candidacy in that one minute response. He directly addressed African Americans and Latinos pointing out the hypocrisy of the Democrats who made promise after promise to get their votes. Continue reading

Who Will Fill the Void?

Who will fill the void? The language and tone of the political season has deteriorated to a repugnant cesspool. Most of us grew up being taught the value of good manners, treating others with respect, and having humility.

Name calling and making fun of others was a punishable offense. So, it is understandable to hear people wish for the campaign season to be over. They just want the conflict to finally end for a season at least. Continue reading

The Trump Tapes Did Not and Will Not Derail the Trump Train

I was paying more attention to the weather channel than other news over the weekend. It was not until Sunday morning that I received an e-mail asking for my take on the latest that Trump said.

My first thought was, “what did he tweet this time?” My google search revealed that there was a lot of activity about a tape from 2005 and the locker room language Trump used.

Professor Perdue Leads Revolt in Senate Nursery

Last week, Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina referred to Freshman Georgia Senator David Perdue as a “Two year old politician.” The context of that reference was a series of speeches on the Senate floor about the budget process.

Senator Perdue has spent months quietly working with his senate colleagues to address the budget process.Then, on September 28, he scheduled the time for the Freshman Senators to join him.

In the fashion of a learned professor, he lectured the seasoned Senators about the budget. He used plain, common sense language. Just a few quotes below:

Annette Bowling stepped into eternity last Wednesday. She was the founder and Executive Director of the Albany Advocacy Resource Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving individuals with developmental disabilities.

There will be a lot written about Annette Bowling. I remember hearing of an account in her life that sums up the heart of a servant. It was not meeting with Governors, Senators, Representatives, or even Presidents. It had to do with a simple cocktail napkin.

What can a cocktail napkin tell you about service? In the hands of the right person it can tell you a lot.

Annette Bowling once visited a foreign country. Paper products were scarce and she was staying with a very poor family.

A fellow American on the trip observed Continue reading
