“Considering” Christianity is Meaningless

A new book claims famed atheist Chris Hitchens considered being a Christian.  So what.  ‘Considering’ Christianity is like ‘considering’ becoming a vegetarian.  If you eat meat, you aren’t a vegetarian no matter how much you’ve thought about doing otherwise.

But I guess people will do anything to sell a book about someone no one can really find interesting unless he’s a foe of faith.

A Rose By Any Other Name…

He [Martin Luther] had a rose in his hand and marveled at it. “A glorious work of art by God,” he said. “If a man had the capacity to make just one rose he would be given an empire! But the countless gifts of God are esteemed as nothing because they’re always present.

Matt Bevin’s Statement

In response to President Obama’s proposed bathroom rules for public schools…

It is difficult to imagine a more absurd federal overreach into a local issue. Under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, the federal government has no authority to interfere in local school districts’ bathroom policies.

The President is not promoting unity. In fact, he is doing quite the opposite. He is intentionally dividing America by threatening to sue or withhold funding from our cash-strapped public schools if they do not agree with his personal opinion on policies that remain squarely in their jurisdiction. They should not feel compelled to bow to such intimidation.

My administration is researching the options available for ensuring that this local issue is decided by Kentuckians, not by bureaucrats in Washington.  — Matt Bevin
