October 14, 2017 I do not understand why we don’t learn from our history. Unfortunately, hate speech is covered by the Constitution – doesn’t mean I have to like and it sure as heck doesn’t mean I have to celebrate it. And, yes – monuments mean something.

October 13, 2017 The Truth Behind the Dead Sea Scrolls, made by National Geographic, is really well done. I have, of course, heard of these scrolls, but I really didn’t know much about them.

Every time I have a question about anything, I am asked point-blank “well, what does the word of… Continue reading A Crisis of Faith
September 17, 2017 They Call Us Monsters. It’s a documentary about juvenile offenders and it’s shocking, to say the very least. How have we failed these young people so miserably?
