Recently I had the good fortunate to join in discussions about why many Christian pastors are not more strident civil rights activists and advocates.

“Despite How You Have Been Sometimes Mistreated, Your Country Has Not Quit You So Be Careful Not To Quit Your Country!

Much criticism and cynicism flourish these days about where America is truly headed. Some have given up all hope that America will ever become in reality what it professes to be as a nation on paper.

A Principle Centered Democracy? Part II
