The Hypocrisy of Trump Haters

The more "shocked and dismayed" they get, the more I side with Trump

It looks to be that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee. I’m not too pleased with that, but let me be honest: I identify more with Trump supporters than I do with those who hate him. Let me explain why.

A Meditation on Christian Hatred

How "turning the cheek" is not such a bad idea afterall

My 9-year-old son came across a disgraceful picture of me on the Internet, a photoshopped gangster/pimp looking mockery of me with crazy eyes and a fat money chain around my neck. Its creator was trying to portray me as greedy, a father of so many children just so that I can write books about them and make a lot of money. I find that crass judgment of me easy to brush off, but my son asked, “Why do people hate you so much, Dad?”

Our New Movie-Streaming Option

No brainer: I get to rent movies for only $1 plus filter out the crap

I tested VidAngel Sunday night with my family. We rented Creed for a total of $1, a great deal, without ever leaving my living room. But I saved much more: I got to choose which swear words and dicey scenes to “bleep” out.

The West’s Response to Brussels Is Wrong

And the correct response isn't difficult to imagine.

Am I the only person who sees the lacking vision in Western thought today? It does not appear that any of our leaders (or potential leaders) has a reasonable response to the tragedy in Brussels, and a reasonable response is not too difficult to imagine.
