My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

Date: 03/24/2016

The original " My Big Fat Greek Wedding " was a charming surprise, a fresh, honest story about a young woman trying to find a way to be true to herself despite her loving but overwhelmingly intrusive Greek-American family. This 15-years-later sequel is an overstuffed, undercooked cash grab, operating at the low level of a basic cable sit-com with a juiced-up laugh track. There's a big difference ...

Trapped

Date: 03/03/2016

TRAP stands for Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. "Trapped" is a powerful new documentary that focuses on efforts to cut off women's access to abortion by imposing requirements and restrictions on clinics that have no relationship to health or safety. It could not be more timely, released the same week that the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade was argued in the Supreme Court, ...

National Review vs Trump II: What Exactly is "Conservatism?"

Date: 01/23/2016

That Donald Trump is no conservative is a proposition of which this conservative needs no convincing. On this score, the self-styled “conservative” contributors to the recent National Review symposium against Trump are correct. It is their conservative bona fides that I challenge. For example, Glenn Beck suggests that Trump is no conservative because along with Barack Obama, Trump supported ...

The Trump Phenomenon and the "Conservative" Movement's Identity Crisis

Date: 01/21/2016

One can only hope that the Trump phenomenon will bring into the sunlight several fictions, most, but not all, of which GOP boosters have been promoting for years. The first is that there are two fundamentally opposed forces within the Republican Party: “the Establishment” and “conservatives,” “anti-Establishmentarians,” or “outsiders.” From this perspective, to hear many GOP politicians and thei ...

The Reason for the Season; Or, Would Jesus Celebrate Christmas?

Date: 12/23/2015

On a recent episode of my radio show, Rise UP with B. Dave Walters  we discussed the true meaning of Christmas, and how to deal with some of the negative emotions that can come along with it.  I got so emotional while talking about the meaning of Christmas that I cried on the radio; something I didn't think was possible! We have also talked about some of the more…controversial aspects of rel ...

Mitt Romney, Faux Conservative Extraordinaire

Date: 10/25/2015

Those of Donald Trump’s “conservative” critics who accuse him of promoting a faux conservatism would be well served to look in the mirror. In the GOP presidential primaries of 2012, many of the same commentators, like Charles Krauthammer , who now declaim Trump as a fake invoked the so-called “Bill Buckley rule” in endorsing Mitt Romney, for the latter, it was said, is “the most conservative ca ...

Hole in the wall of separation: churches get raided endlessly by the NSA

Date: 09/26/2015

The illegal confiscation of all our email and phone call data by the US National Security Agency (NSA) isn't just unconstitutional within the United States, but is a direct threat to the ability of religious traditions to continue. It is a type of desecration and a direct state invasion when used against churches, and so religious believers of all faiths should be opposing it fiercely. I am ...
