Doing the Devil’s Work
Monday, Dec 9, 2013

Reports indicate that Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker’s funeral. This church claims to be a Christian organization acting on God’s behalf. Well, maybe it is. The Bible speaks of two gods in particular: the God of Abraham and the god of this world (aka...

Religious Freedom is for All, or None | Commentary by Joe Messina
Monday, Sep 23, 2013

I recently read a story about a public school that took students on a field trip to a mosque. At first I was outraged, as were many of my fellow conservatives. How dare they spend my tax money to go to such a place of hate, and an enemy to Americans, those jihadist-loving Muslims? To top it off, the...

Monday, Aug 26, 2013

I’ve been railing lately about the apparent war on religion in this country. On the radio show I hear story after story about someone’s religious freedom being challenged. But I was wrong. When I went back and reviewed this “war,” I realized it was all aimed at Christians. Yes, Christians. Skeptical?...

We Have a Guaranteed Freedom of Nothing
Monday, Jun 17, 2013

Last week we celebrated more than 230 years of protection from the United States Army. These brave men and women have been dying for our freedom to be stupid for a long time. I am enraged by this administration’s recent attack on the military, and even more so by the administration’s inability to...

Sure … There’s No Attack on Religion
Monday, Apr 15, 2013

Not all religions are under attack. It seems the emphasis is on Christian-based religions. Let’s review a couple of examples. According to the AP and other news sources, an LGBTQ group (for the uniformed that stands for “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer”) has asked that a priest be removed...
