Saint Paul Addresses The Synod

My dear Brothers in Christ, It is not unusual for people of a certain epoch to assume that in their time the culture has deteriorated to such a degree and at so swift a pace that it must be unique in history.

Highly successful former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy created a firestorm recently when he was asked by a reporter if, were he still a head coach, he would have drafted Michael Sam, the first openly homosexual player taken in the NFL draft.

An Inevitable Conclusion

Well, it happened again. This time a federal judge has overturned the homosexual marriage ban in Wisconsin. For those who are proponents of such “marriages” and, thus, the entire homosexual lifestyle, they must be feeling pretty good about themselves. What they were not capable of getting through the legislative process, they have achieved through the […]

A Scandal Within A Scandal

When Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was secretly recorded making racist remarks, the National Basketball Association recognized immediately that it had a crisis on its hands. Many corporate sponsors of Clippers games withdrew their support, and the NBA saw that such a boycott could spread to other teams and the NBA institution itself. Aside […]
