My Heart Aches for America

America suffered another tragic shooting today. The Reverend Billy Graham published a letter to America a few weeks ago that seems almost to speak of it when he says, “My heart aches for America.”  Here’s an excerpt of what he wrote: Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I […]

WordPress to Patheos, Oh My!

Dear Friends: If all goes well, Public Catholic will start publishing through Patheos on Monday, August 6. As to what happens if things don’t go well, I’m kinda clueless. I have never done anything like this before so it’s a learn-as-you-go and hope-you-get-it-right process. I’ve been told that the experience will be seamless for people […]

It’s Eat a Chicken Sandwich for Freedom of Speech Day !

It’s eat a chicken sandwich for freedom of speech day. Enjoy. I got the idea for this card from a very similar one I saw on Tumblr. If I find that card again, I’ll give you the person’s name.

The Search for Brad Pitt’s Spine

An elderly woman sent a letter to the editor in Springfield Missouri. The letter was published in the local newspaper. That would — and should — have been the end of it. But the internet wolf pack locked onto this elderly woman and her little letter. They did this because she has a famous son. […]

The Bombing

We call it The Bombing. We don’t use qualifiers about the Alfred P Murrah Federal Building, or Oklahoma City. Anytime you utter the words The Bombing around these parts, everyone in hearing distance will know what and when you mean. We also don’t talk about it much. This monstrous event knocked us flat as a […]

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Part 6. Preach Christ = Preach Christ Crucified

Where there is no vision, the people perish.    Proverbs 29: 18  … and he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.     Mark 6: 34 For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much […]

Congressional hearing examines violence against Christians in Nigeria :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

Congressional hearing examines violence against Christians in Nigeria :: Catholic News Agency (CNA). Christians are currently being subjected to what amounts to genocide in several areas in the world. The persecution in Nigeria is one terrible example. Unfortunately, hate speech directed at Christians and Christianity has become ubiquitous on the internet. It is past time […]

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Part 5. Hate-Voting = Using the Devil’s Weapons Instead of the Armor of God.

Hate-voting for Christ is an oxymoron if there ever was one. Hate-voting is the fine art of defaming the people you disagree with in order to punish, diminish and hurt them. Hate-voting destroys your Christian witness. When you say you are a Christian, other people will judge Jesus by you. When you spout a steady stream […]
