  • Rose from the dead and is seated at Father’s right hand
  • Shall come again to judge the living and the dead

Rasmussen reports that people who take their faith seriously think Obama’s a joke

New Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveying of likely U.S. Voters shows that the president earns a job approval rating of 58% among those who rarely or never attend church or religious services.

It is Catholicism that is right, not I.

These opinions I have may not be the most popular or religiously ecumenical, but the fact is I’m quite tired of ecumenism. That was what our most recent conversation was about. Ecumenism, or more specifically, tip toeing around the sensibilities of other religions. He finds it elitist a Catholic’s claim of belonging to the One True Church.

A cop’s conversion to Catholicism: All that it should be, and more!

Liberals vs. Tim Tebow: Seething and self-evident anti-Christian bigotry.

The only explanation for what can possibly be fueling this hatred and contempt for Tebow is that he thanks Jesus Christ at every opportunity. That reality alone is what is driving these self-defined paragons of tolerance into the realm of derangement. And if that seems like too strong of a descriptor, consider the words of left-wing Rabbi Joshua Hammerman in a recent column:

While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.”
