Pray for Pierce Brosnan

Reading Pierce Brosnan’s GQ interview makes me scratch my head and want to ask for prayer. My life started on the banks of the Boyne in County Meath. Navan is the name of the town; only me, Mom, Dad. Dad ran to the hills; never saw him ’til I was thirty-one. Mother looked after me […]

What Steve King got wrong about Ferguson

It is disappointing to me to see conservatives like Steve King ignoring an important conservative principle in discussing the situation in Ferguson.
