…and the Five posts you ignored more than MSNBC

The Methodical March of the law

One of the things that is almost axiomatic is the law moves at its own pace. In one respect this is a good thing.  It's very dangerous to rush to judgement before the facts are in, but in an age of rapid response, lack of patience and instant gratification the slow crawl of the law … Continue reading The Methodical March of the law

A Conservative New Year’s Resolution

The Obama years as Python: El Mystico Care

Jerusalem and Athens

More than 1500 years ago, the great Theologian Tertullian posed the question:  What has Jerusalem have to do with Athens? This is an interesting point of inquiry.  On the surface, one might think that this is an inconsequential issue.  However, perhaps it is not so much what the two cities of antiquity have in common that … Continue reading Jerusalem and Athens
