(No, of course. Trump won Ohio. But the absentee ballot count in Ohio tells us something about the absentee ballot count in states which Trump now claims have been stolen.) The numerical facts of the Presidential election seem clear. Officially, President Trump leapt out to a huge lead on election night. As absentee ballots were … Continue reading Did the Dems Steal Ohio?
My mind keeps returning to Frogger, the video game from the early 1980's. Isn't that a good picture of what life is like right now? Under normal circumstances, life is complicated. But with COVID and elections and etc. etc. it's just crazy. Jump forward. Again. Again, again ... no, jump back! Wait ... I'm trying … Continue reading Life is Frogger, Frogger Is Life
From rove.com. The money quote: There are suspicious partisans across the spectrum who believe widespread election fraud is possible. Some hanky-panky always goes on, and there are already reports of poll watchers in Philadelphia not being allowed to do their jobs. But stealing hundreds of thousands of votes would require a conspiracy on the scale … Continue reading Karl Rove: Is the Election Being Stolen?
Earlier today, I posted Election Thoughts, explaining why I am confident in the integrity of the vote counting process we're currently suffering through. Here's another reason I believe that the vote-counting process is on the up and up: If the Democrats were going to steal the presidency via election fraud, don't you think they would've … Continue reading Another Election Thought
I write this on Thursday morning, Zagreb-time. Biden stands at 264 electoral votes (Fox News count), with four states left to count. At some point in the next 24 hours, Biden will be declared the President-elect. Much of America is asking itself this morning: How did Biden make up so much ground when the mail-in … Continue reading Election Thoughts
Everybody's complaining about how divided my country is, and everyone is blaming the other guy for the division. "I'm sick of how divided and angry we are! If those damn Democrats would just ..." This is what Culture Wars produce. A bunch of people who hate the other side and insist on the rightness of … Continue reading My Divided Country
Earlier this week, I posted What Is “Prolife”? Why did I write and publish that post? (What Is “Prolife”? generated a bit of controversy on my Facebook. BTW, I have deactivated my Facebook, and don't plan to go back.) I published that piece because I've been beating my head against this particular wall for forty-two … Continue reading Why “What Is ‘Prolife’?”?
What does it mean to be prolife? How do we define the label? What is its scope? For example: is abortion the only issue that the label "prolife" pertains to? Or does/should/can "prolife" also refer to a person's stance toward capital punishment, war, poverty, healthcare, etc.? If not, why not? Also: assuming "prolife" applies only … Continue reading What Is “Prolife”?
For context, read yesterday's post. As I said last night, there doesn't seem to be much grace here. That's observation #1. Observation #2 is that current identity thinking (which I usually label "intersectionality") is problematic for Christians, because our identity has to be centered in Jesus Christ. Now: THAT is a problematic statement, because my … Continue reading More on the Wallis Resignation
