Pagans on the Wall

Pagans on the Wall

The positions over border security today, and what it should look like, provide a telling example of how much society has changed. Immigration is one of the few powers granted to the federal government. So why isn’t this power being exercised The arguments against a wall (barrier) provide an opportunity to examine the underlying ideas, and why they matter. Read More

America’s Political Jihad

America’s Political Jihad

As we approach another year’s end, it’s time to pause and reflect for a moment on where we are, how we got here, and where we appear to be headed. Striking me most this year is the deepening division within our society. A division intensified by our political classes—groups that shouldn’t even exist in America. In fact, I’m no longer sure we are a single society. This situation cannot last. Read More

The Gift of Life

The Gift of Life

Reprinted from LivingRightly.net The prior article focused on justice. Today’s focuses on life, but not the political hype surrounding the issue.

Liberalism’s Impact on Justice

Liberalism’s Impact on Justice

Reprinted from livingrightly.net This next series extends the conversation begun last time. That article ended with the statement that today’s liberals are betting prosperity can only occur under government direction. Its all about achieving specific ends, ends that must be directed from the top. That is the basis for their false claim the Obama administration’s policies are responsible for this past year’s economic growth. Read More

The Left is Right

The Left is Right

The Left is Right I wasn’t sure if this was the right time for this article. But after the left’s reporting and antics over the last couple of weeks about all that is supposedly wrong, I think we deserve a little reality. Liberals have proudly announced this last years economic growth is due to the Obama administration, and I think they are right, but not for the reasons they claim. Read More

The Perfect Man

The Perfect Man

by Dan Wolf The Problem I recently heard one member of the group behind “The Perfect Man” billboards speak. Their presentation began with a number of points about Islam itself. These included: Islam is not a religion, but an ideology with a thin veneer of religion applied over the top of it. There is no such thing as radical Islam. It is not a religion that has been highjacked, but an ideology where all who follow are called to jihad. Islam seeks to undermine western culture and replace it. It is not Muslims that are the problem, as we share the same nature. Instead, the problem is Islam’s ideas. Only about 30% of the world’s Islamic population has ever read the Qur’an. Many Islamic immigrants who’ve left the Middle East are MINOs (Muslim in name only). These are people who culturally identify themselves as followers of Islam, but generally do not actively practice it. According to the Qur’an, Muhammad is the perfect man. Islam considers criticizing its ideas or Muhammad to be a sin, one punishable by death. Read More

Virginia’s Irresponsible Budget

Virginia’s Irresponsible Budget

Dan Wolf | Living Rightly On May 30, the Virginia Senate passed a fiscally irresponsible and immoral budget approved earlier by the House of Delegates. Budgeted expenses are projected to grow from their present $51.8 billion in 2018 to $57.0 and $58.9 billion in 2019 and 2020, single year increases of 11% and 14% respectively over present spending levels. A large part of this increase comes from an approximately $3.6 billion per year expansion in Medicaid program spending, with an accompanying false claim of moral compassion to promote the need for same. Some of this program’s expansion is to be financed by a new $600 million tax on the hospitals receiving program expenditures in return for providing Medicaid healthcare services. This article looks closer at the spending increase and compassion claim. Read More

Evil Raises Its Head Again

Evil Raises Its Head Again

Dan Wolf | Virginia Christian Alliance Another tragedy occurred yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, in Florida. First, my prayers and condolences go out to those affected including school personnel, children, their parents, families, and neighbors. And I also include the shooter and his family. They need our prayers as well. We may never understand why this shooting happened, but in some ways understanding why it happened doesn’t really matter. It was an act of hate—evil. Pray and Reflect These tragedies can cause us to become angry and fearful. That’s okay as long as we do not let those emotions control our actions. We must, as individuals and a society, rise above such things. There are several steps we each can take. The first step is simply to pray. As noted above for all of those who were directly touched by the shooting. Pray for their healing, and for those who lost their life. Read More
