One of the hallmarks of an insecure worldview is the destruction of anything that appears to challenge the validity of that worldview. Take for example the March 11, 2001 destruction of the the 1700 year old Bamiyan Buddhist statues that were dynamited and destroyed by the Taliban. You can watch a one minute video of it here: For some reason, unknown to reasonable men, the statues posed a threat to the Taliban. Their very existence called for their removal in the minds of the jihadists. This is no different than “Uncle Joe” Stalin’s airbrushing water commissar Nikolai Yezhov out of pictures after Yezhov fell out of favor with the dictator. See the before and after, it would be funny if it weren’t at the expense of a man’s life and perpetrated to re-write history. History is real people recording real events in real time. We cannot wish, or wish away, something to be true in the past because it doesn’t fit with someone’s present day worldview. One writer observed to the fact that some historians go through life talking about things that never went through the formality of actually taking place, to them history is full of fluid possibilities. Let me explain what I’m noticing in our Michigan Capitol and the apparent machinations of the Capitol Facilities under the dome. We could very well be in for a great awakening. By that I mean we could wake up to a nightmare of our own designing. We don’t have our history stolen from us, we give it up through ignorance and apathy. There is the potential for mischief if we don’t let Michigan Capitol...Learn More

And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage. Ezra 9:8 My mind keeps going back to the phrase ‘a little space [of] grace’ as I reflect on the work we did in 2016 for our Christian Schools. In my efforts on Capitol Hill our work was centered on the First Amendment Defense Act or FADA H.B. 2802. My goals on my congressional visits were to find co-sponsors of the bill and then to ask that if the bill comes up for a vote, would they be willing to vote for it. I felt that my time doing this was profitable in that we were able to find co-sponsors and some were surprised that when asked about their vote, replied something to the effect “Why would I co-sponsor a bill I wouldn’t vote for”? Here is where we are today. Typically, politics is downstream of culture, that is, our politicians have a tendency to follow what they hear at the voting booth and also when they’re back in the district listening to their voters. Apparently the voters who said that they have had enough of politics as usual in Washington DC. People are tired of Christian bakers being sued for their faith and convictions of not wanting to make the same sex wedding cake. An interesting sidenote is that Brad Avakian, the politician who fined them $135,000.00, lost his bid...Learn More
