Oprah's Mom

“Lots of people would’ve told you to abort that baby. You didn’t do that. I know that was hard. I want you to know that no matter what, I know that you always did the best you knew how to do. And look how it turned out.”

Those are the touching words Oprah Winfrey used to say goodbye to her mother who passed away on Thanksgiving Day this year.

Look how it turned out indeed. Vernita Lee’s daughter is now a billionaire instantly identified the world over by the mere utterance of her first name.

Oprah may not preach what her mom practiced but thankfully more Americans are choosing Vernita Lee’s example over her daughter’s.

In the last decade abortions in the U.S. have declined by 25%, according to the CDC.

Even as secular humanism has poisoned so many American institutions, sacred and civic, prayer warriors, Planned Parenthood defectors and the pregnancy centers who tend to families in crisis are winning hearts and minds.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we should also celebrate that the culture of life is beating back cultural Marxism.

DNC Boss: God's In The Way

The path to putting a Democrat in the White House runs through God.

That’s not me saying God favors Republicans.

That’s potty-mouthed DNC Chairman Tom Perez saying God’s faithful disapprove of Tom’s faithful because of Biblical instruction on pesky issues like life and death.

Quoting from Perez’s comments on the clergy, “…that person on the pulpit is saying ‘ignore everything else that this person (Trump) has done and is doing, we have to focus on one issue of Roe v. Wade.’ And people buy it because that’s their only source.”

Perez is at once troubled by Americans who think checks and balances apply to the Judicial Branch and life is a gift from God not to be easily discarded.

Perez is additionally unnerved by churchgoers who lean on spiritual leaders working from western civilization’s source material rather than finding their righteous footing from Sister Maddow’s jeremiads.

The short of it is Tom Perez would like you to stop attending church because it puts a real crimp in the ability of Democrats to make the state your god.
