Turn to Jesus Christ, Who Gives Life its Meaning

I am having surgery next Monday to learn whether or not my cancer has spread. Docs in movies know what is wrong and what to do about it at jump street. Or, if they don’t get it at first glance, they engage in heroics and ultimately figure it...

An Open Letter to the Head of the DNC

Dear Mr. Perez: I don’t normally write “open” letters to people. In fact, this is my first. But I read about your arrogant statement that pro-life Democrats are no longer welcome in the Democratic party. That statement is far removed from what...

Please Remember Me in Your Prayers This Friday

I have another “mass.” My biopsy is scheduled for this Friday — Good Friday. I’ve asked a number of people to pray, and their first response has been “how can that be?” I had a bilateral mastectomy, and in their minds, that removed all risk of...

He Created Them Male and Female and Blessed Them

Pope Francis recently made a few remarks about women in which he tried to describe the phenomena that I observed over and again when I was a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He talked about women’s ability to bring “harmony” to...

Give Up Your Idols, Step Out of the Crowd and Follow Jesus

Most Christians want a comfortable enough, get-out-of-jail-free kind of faith. They want to go to heaven, but not now. Heaven is for the distant future, when they are very old and die in their sleep after having dozed off in front of the...
