I will also not be “scared silent” anymore…

Donald, Bernie, and Me
I love my church. I love their ability to think and disagree, and still love each other as we wrestle with the issues.
Keep Calm. All has truly returned to normal.
Post election blues for many liberals. Post election exhaling for conservatives. A lot of inhaling for those in DC and Oregon who passed the legalization of recreational marijuana… Yes, life has returned to normal. Breathe deep. If you lost… give it two years. If you won… give it two years. In jest, I posted this on myContinue reading “Keep Calm. All has truly returned to normal.”
Vote. Yes. Vote!
Elections are about rich guys taking on other rich guys. It’s about a two-party system that controls just about everything and is incredibly unresponsive to people. They pay attention to LOBBYISTS, but they pretend to need us (the voters) for a short period of time. It’s rich guys bashing other rich guys for being… well…Continue reading “Vote. Yes. Vote!”
Elections are coming
I have no memory of when I was this NOT worked up about an election. Ever. I don’t know if that’s a good sign, or bad. I’ll vote. I’ll care. But everything is so predictable these days, it’s perfunctory.

Voter ID It is the call for everyone casting a ballot to have a valid ID so we can assure valid elections. 2. The definition of marriage IfContinue reading “The “What ifs” of the Marriage Amendment”
Centering in on the essentials as the election approaches
This picture has been circulating on Facebook, so it must be true. 😉 I sure HOPE Wesley said this.
Evangelical “Right”, “Left”, “Center”…
Roger Olson has another thought-provoking piece on evangelicals and political movements. It’s always a tough read for me these days. What I witness too often are reactions. I grew up in the very conservative political movements of the “Moral Majority” and such.
