Marching for Life, Congressman King’s Our Brother, The Wall Makes Sense, MLK DAY All About Love

Marching for Life, Congressman King’s Our Brother, The Wall Makes Sense, MLK DAY All About Love

As “boots on the ground” in Washington, DC for the 24th Annual National Memorial Prayer Service and the March for Life today, I’m also getting calls to defend Congressman Steve King for racist remarks. Meanwhile, my family and I are in the heat and heart of the celebration of the 90th birthday of my uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And people are still fighting about the wall. I’m being asked if Congressman King a racist? Actually, from my…

STOP COUNTERPRODUCTIVE CONSUMPTION OF GRATUITOUS VERBAL AND VISUAL DIARRHEA

STOP COUNTERPRODUCTIVE CONSUMPTION OF GRATUITOUS VERBAL AND VISUAL DIARRHEA

Last night I made a huge mistake and broke a cardinal rule of mine. While I should have been sleeping, I read a post about a weird anti-woman diatribe against Ivanka Trump. My mind was still reeling over the Rosanne debacle. The grim reaper of social divisiveness was at work big time. All of the media attention – television, film, radio and social media – to the emotional tirades and strife filled content (intentional and unintentional) is currently jamming frequencies…

Voter Turnoffs: Avoid Tricky Political Spin Traps

Voter Turnoffs: Avoid Tricky Political Spin Traps

Often politicians make unenforceable promises that make people feel good. We applaud those promises from candidates we like, because they strike a feel good chord. On the other hand, we attack those seemingly impossible unfulfillable promises from candidates we don’t prefer, because we want them to lose so that our candidates can win. It’s all an emotional spin trap. I’m not sure what took me so long, but during past elections I “wrote in” names for candidates because of personal,…

Should Christians Vote?

Should Christians Vote?

This is part three of what is becoming a series about voting. Some of the intel from the previous two articles is recapped here. Just before I was born-again in 1983, I served two terms as a State Legislator for the 28th Georgia House District. I was a Democrat. Years later I served as a Republican Presidential Appointee. Along the way I remember learning that God is greater than politics and that politics can become an idol. Coming from a…

King Rule #7: Care for the Needy (Children at Home and Abroad)

King Rule #7: Care for the Needy (Children at Home and Abroad)

It is an honor to stand with mercuryone.org and other compassionate leaders in aiding young immigrants on the borders. The opportunity to serve many of these children during this time of crisis was truly humbling. I was praying to God for these innocent children when a call from Glen Beck’s office came, inviting me to join in the July 19, mission in McAllen, Texas. I was relieved. This “Macedonian Call” in the midst of our current border crisis was an…

Visit rights50.com today – Free the Babies

Fifty years ago LBJ signed the US Civil Rights Bill into law. Yet babies and women are dying today from the torture and abuse of abortion and abortifacients. While President Johnson is credited with the passage of the 50 year old legislation celebrated today, it was Conservative Congressman Bill McCullough who accomplished the feat of uniting political parties to pass the bill. I mention this historical note during the height of the turning tide that the Hobby Lobby victory represents….

HHS Mandate Offense Hits Home in a Personal Way

HHS Mandate Offense Hits Home in a Personal Way

Yesterday was International Human Rights Day, and yet Priests for Life is embroiled in a legal battle to end a serious infraction against the human rights of women and babies. The Priests for Life HHS Mandate lawsuit which includes plaintiffs Fr. Frank Pavone, Janet Morana, and myself is timely, and it’s necessary. The Mandate is personally offensive because my own constitutional rights are being violated. It’s unfair to require that PFL, the company that I work for pay into a…
