LSHS Class of 1977

My old buddy Phil Underwood came to town Friday, and we got to hang out for a few hours, going out to eat pizza and then visiting with my youngest son and his bride. Phil and I graduated from Lithia Springs (Ga.) High School in 1977, and I hadn’t seen him in nearly 40 years. […]

Of Course, Evolution Is Racist

Our friends at Breitbart are having a point-and-laugh carnival about the fact that England’s Sheffield University has made Charles Darwin the latest historical figure to be “cancelled” because, it is alleged, his theory of evolution was used to “justify white male supremacy.” While we may enjoy the fun — “Hahaha!

Muslim Immigrant Attacks Police

Authorities are looking into whether the Wednesday night stabbing of an NYPD officer in Brooklyn was a terror-inspired attack, law enforcement sources said Thursday. One officer was stabbed in the neck and two others were shot during the confrontation in the Flatbush neighborhood. All […]

‘For the Wrath of God Is Revealed From Heaven Against All Ungodliness …’

Thus begins one of the most powerful passages of Scripture, and I was pleased today to learn from Denise McAllister that this has become the inspiration for a new website, Romans One. It is an ambitious and high-minded project, as the editors explain their intended mission: Why choose this part of the Bible as the […]

Fish Stories
