Congressman Trey Gowdy at 65,000-Member Megachurch: Don't Expect Political, Social 'Messiah'; Answers to All Political Questions in Bible

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, told campuses at Houston's 65,000-member Second Baptist Church June 28-29 that people who are hoping for an Abraham Lincoln or Ronald Reagan in the political sphere or a Martin Luther King in the social arena will be disappointed. Today's media, political, and cultural atmosphere focuses on tearing down people who seek leadership.

Where America and Western Civilization Are Headed (Part 2)

But "the great swing of history" is not merely the passing of generations. The historical pattern is that whole civilizations rise and fall, say Arnold Toynbee and other historians. Here is more detail about the civilizational cycle which is "the great swing of history" we are now experiencing:

The Rise of Anti-Christianity in the West

"There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its biblical heartlands," said a report by think-tank Civitas about persecution of Christians in the Middle East. Ample evidence suggests there are those who would like Christianity to vanish from the West as well.

Jail Global-Warming Deniers: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

If Torcello, assistant professor of philosophy at the Institute, has his way, climate change deniers could go to jail.

A 2009 quake killed 300 and left some 66,000 homeless.

So thank God for Phil Robertson, and for those important and courageous voices in the homosexual community who have come to his defense because of their belief in free thought and speech, as well as all others who admire someone in this age of compromise and political correctness who will stand by his faith. That looks "like Jesus" to me.
