  • Pastor's Corner

    Jul 10, 2013

    What would it be like if there were a store in town that sold shirts? Not just any shirts though. What if they sold one shirt in one design only? Made from the finest quality, but only one fabric choice. One size only–and that was 5X because it had to fit everyone. Sure, it was a little loose on some, but on NFL lineman it fit great. Moreover, the people who bought the shirt spent all their time trying to coerce their acquaintances into buying this particular shirt. That would be awesome, wouldn’t it? I was asked the other day that if the... Full story

    Jul 10, 2013

    You’ve got to hand it to the Supreme Court: It’s hard to pin down an agenda. The justices closed with a flourish, standing up for equality with their rulings on gay marriage. Actually, one of them was a nonruling, but in the process of, in effect, rejecting a case for procedural reasons, they let stand lower-court rulings that overturned a ban on same-sex marriage in California. More importantly, in the other big case, they overturned the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which denied federal matrimonial benefits to all but male-female cou...

    Jul 10, 2013

    Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has contempt for a swath of his fellow citizens. If you disagree with him about gay marriage, indeed, if you merely think the federal government should continue to define marriage the traditional way while the states define it however they want, then you are a bigot. Your views deserve no political representation. They should be ground underfoot by the five mightiest and most broad-minded people in the land, presiding from their temple of rationality and tolerance at the United States Supreme Court. Kennedy...
