Homosexual Marriage

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 06/13/2012 - 18:55

America was founded on scriptural law. Scripture defines marriage as a covenant between a man, a woman, and God. It is this definition that helps define the parameters of this debate. If you believe in the Word, then you must accept the scriptural definition of marriage, which is the joining of a man and a woman.

Commentary: Should we reinstitute a compulsory draft?

The biggest problem I have with a compulsory draft is that it cannot ever be considered constitutional, regardless of the so-called reasons for having one.

When a citizen enlists in any of the Armed Services, he or she must take a sworn oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution from all enemies, domestic or foreign, and to obey the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Upon taking this oath, the enlistee becomes G.I., which means government issue.

You see, members of the military must voluntarily waive their God-given rights in order to be a part of any branch of the Armed Services; and therein lies my problem with a draft.

Commentary: Senator Joe Lieberman on War and the Constitution

In what can only be described as his latest attempt to display his outright ignorance about American law and the Constitution, Senator Joe Lieberman recently expounded on the constitutional crisis we are currently facing in the United States.

Not wishing to be accused of looking for trouble where none exists, I will confine myself to Senator Lieberman’s own comments, to wit:

Seeking Justice

What is justice?

In Plato’s epic volume, Republic, the philosopher Socrates is having a dialogue with several friends on the definition of justice. The 800-page volume is about the search for the meaning of justice. Yet even after finishing such a large tome, the reader comes away with a greater understanding of the questions, but without a clear answer.

The Definition of Slavery

My first encounter with slavery was in Christian Summer Bible School, with the telling of the story of Moses. I remember pictures of the little baby in a reed basket, placed in the river so he would not be killed. He was found, nurtured and eventually let the Israelites out of Egypt. We all know the story.

Then there are the stories of African slave traders and those who were sold to the white man. Some call this a blight on American history; others say that throughout history, some men have always seen others as a commodity to be controlled or sold for profit.

What is slavery and why is it such a repeatable occurrence in the history of mankind?

The Way I See It: Concerning Hate - commentary by Brent Johnson

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 09/21/2011 - 14:53

It is not OK to hate your enemy.

I cannot emphasize this enough.  If you rejoice in the death of your enemy, then you rejoice in the destruction of life… and that is what those whom we revile do.  If we act the same way then we are no better than they are.

The Sovereign Character

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 08/24/2011 - 15:02

If you knew… really knew… with every fiber of your essence… that you were king or queen… that you were royalty, literally and in the truest sense of the word… if you knew this without any room for doubt…

… would you behave any differently when dealing with your public servants?!


Recently, a listener to my radio show commented that he finally realized what it means to be sovereign. He correctly explained that sovereignty is a statement of character. A sovereign carries himself differently, with an air of power and authority about him (or her), so that all the world can see by his demeanor that he is special, he is majestic.

The United States Design Flaw

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 06/22/2011 - 18:18

By Brent Johnson

Frequently these days, I am approached by someone complaining to me about the problems with modern society in the United States.  The complaints tend to cover a wide spectrum: the economy is collapsing, the education system is inadequate, there are too many regulations, taxation is out of control, etc.

While each of these statements may be true, I do not believe that any of them represent the cause of their respective complaints.  Rather, they are each a symptom of a more basic problem.

The Modern Day Coliseum

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 05/04/2011 - 20:04

In ancient Rome, the government (i.e. Caesar) gave the general population free bread and circuses, in the form of “games” held at the Coliseum.  These “games” were one-sided affairs that pit fully armed and armored Roman champions against unarmed gladiator slaves.  Frequently, they would add live tigers to the bout, making it that much more certain that the slaves would be killed.

The Power of Fear

Submitted by Freedomman on Thu, 03/03/2011 - 16:04

All tyrannies, regardless of their origins, use fear to maintain their power bases.

The worst tyrannical powers have used fear to maintain order and insure that the people comply with their demands: Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini and  Mao are just a few examples. Fear has also been used by “benevolent” groups such as religious organizations to maintain control, but I will save that discussion for another time.
