Take the High Road

It’s been raining. There’s enough rain to make mud. Regrettably, there’s also a lot of mud-slinging. As founder and chairman of Pastors PAC, I’ve been actively engaged in vetting candidates in over a dozen elections since 2012.  Our mooring principle is Proverbs 29:2a.  “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice.” Our second anchoring principle is Exodus 18:21 which adds ability to character.  We seek to vet candidates and endorse those who have good character and demonstrated ability to fulfill the responsibilities of the office sought.

Quick Bytes – 3/4/2018

3/1/2018 If anyone doesn’t believe there’s a “War on Christianity”, just look at the reaction by anti-religious freaks against actor Chris Pratt. Anti-Christian/anti-Second Amendment people were offended because Pratt offered his prayers for a friend who had a heart attack, and then encouraged others to pray for him. Pratt was so viciously attacked and criticized, that friends had to come to his defense. How sad that someone must defend themselves for offering to pray for someone else.

LULAC versus America?

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is immersed in a controversy, largely ignored by the local news media, with long term consequences for liberty and economic prosperity.  With almost 145,000 members and chapters across the country, LULAC claims to be the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization. It was founded by military veterans with the aim of integrating Hispanics, primarily Mexican Americans into the American middle class. For the most part LULAC focused on education and avoided the excesses and polarization of the left leaning civil rights movement of the 1960’s.  LULAC’s early leaders were traditional American…
