It’s Our Hearts, Not Our Guns

I’ve written a number of times our greatest failure is that we start our outrage, we begin our arguments in the wrong place, kind of like shutting the barn doors after the horses have already escaped. We feel like we are doing something, and these…

The Bible and Sanctuary Cities

Our Recent Mass Shootings and Killings

Like all of you I’m outraged at the many recent deaths at the hands of two sick gunmen. Unlike some of you I don’t knee-jerk against Americans having the right to own guns because I know the problem isn’t having guns and the answer isn’t…
