The Confederate Flag and the Cross (A Plea to Christians)

With the recent dust-up over the Confederate Flag and its use in South Carolina, I can only wonder how long it will be before the same elite liberals get their knickers in a knot over all the crosses across the country. It should not be too long, given that everyone and their dog was so quick to jump on the bandwagon for getting rid of the Confederate Flag in South Carolina. Never mind what the people of South Carolina believed about the flag, the flag must come down for the following reasons:

  1. The flag represented the Confederacy during the War of Northern Aggression. The Confederacy lost. The Confederacy had slaves before the war. Slavery is evil, therefore the flag that represented the Confederacy is evil… all who fly the flag are evil. (This is extremely bad logic, but hey, it works for liberals).
  2. Black people are offended by the flag. Therefore it must come down.

Never mind that we just went through an entire media blitz about Bruce Jenner, who thinks he is a woman and therefore we must call him a woman, even though scientific fact disputes such a claim. With the Jenner logic, it seems to me that all we have to do is ask the good people of South Carolina what they think about the flag? If they like the flag, then they should be able to fly the flag. It does not matter how many people are offended by the flag.

Top 11 Reasons I’m Glad to Be Back in Texas

Texas Flag

I’m glad I’m back in Texas. My foray into the ministry took me to Arkansas, Tennessee, South Carolina, back to Tennessee and finally to New Mexico. While those are all wonderful states in their own right, none of them compare to Texas. Yes, I know, I’m biased. Texas is my home. I love living here. I love the people here. I love the Texas spirit that many people still have today. We are Texans! Now get out of our way and let us work and do what is right!

I’m glad I’m back in Texas. Here are my top 11 reasons.

1. Being close to family. It’s been great getting to spend time with my father and his wife, Donna on the ranch. Had the calamity in my life not occurred, I would not have had this wonderful opportunity. I’ve also been able to see my sister and her family and one of my brothers.

Good Southern Food

I was perusing Facebook this morning and noticed that my friend Andrew M. had a post about a women in South Carolina asking for “diet sweet tea.” That was humorous in and of itself because “diet sweet tea” is called “unsweetened tea.” I know that you can add those poisonous pink packets of powder to the tea to make it taste sweet and have less calories, but I’m convinced it is better for you just to add the sugar to the tea and drink it that way.
