The March for Lobster Life

Last week, Switzerland banned the boiling of live, conscious lobsters. The new law came as the result of a recent study that "suggests lobsters are sentient with advanced nervous systems that may feel pain." (here)

Speaking of things that are sentient with advanced nervous systems that feel pain, today is the 45th annual March for Life.

Women Are Sinful Too

One of the jobs of the Christian, be he a pastor or a layman, is to reshape this world into the image of the next. Really, you could say this is the job of the Christian. "Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven." It's what our first parents were commissioned to do, and it's what we now continue.

There are many ways we go about accomplishing this. Reaching the lost and raising Godly families are, of course, foremost examples. In this, we change the world by changing lives.

Another part of this is changing the world by calling out its crap.

"Microaggressions" Are Nonsense

It is well and proper to go out of your way not to offend someone. Paul reminded the Christians in Corinth that loving others sometimes entails giving up certain rights ( 1 Cor. 8:9, 10:23). Yes and amen. 

This is not, however, a call to abandon reason.

This morning, The Washington Post published an article in which they claim that, in a meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday, President Trump referred to some countries as "****holes".

This may be the shortest blog I've written ever written, but I wanted to supply a brief response.

If I Wrote Oprah's Speech

You may be wondering what these ladies are doing standing behind me.

What? You didn’t expect to see them here tonight? That may be because they weren’t invited.
