Convenient excuses are abundant (the system, the elites, outsiders, disadvantage) and need to be unveiled for what they are. The point is that until the stranglehold of group identity can be broken, a paradigm shift, enabling people to get beyond the very real and perceived obstacles, can’t happen

Scriptures make it clear that nations can morally forfeit the right to maintain sovereign control over their own territory through savagery, superstition, and sexual debauchery. When a nation indulges in such practices long enough, God intervenes in judgment, usually by bringing stronger nations in to transfer control of the land through conquest.

What the slave apparently didn’t know about Jefferson was the many years he had wrestled with the problem of slavery, much as today we see groups making demands without first demanding of themselves a fuller understanding of the circumstances that has led to their perception of the underlying challenge. In November of 1808, President Thomas […]

The lawsuit says: “Rather than immediately reporting any alleged ‘crime’ to authorities, Clark and Butler Snow waited until almost three weeks later to contact authorities at the city of Madison — just weeks prior to the Republican Primary runoff election.

“Though they had the information the entire time, Butler Snow and Clark presumably spent roughly three weeks researching and formulating criminal causes of action that could possibly be pursued by prosecutors.”

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower federal court’s decision to strike down House Bill 1523, allowing the law to take effect. The ruling was that the original plaintiffs challenging House Bill 1523 lacked standing, because they “have not shown an injury-in-fact caused by HB 1523.”

That’s exactly what these four articles published over a year ago on MississippiPEP.com explained.

As conservatives, we believe that change comes through ballots, not bullets. There is no place in our society for vigilante justice in political matters – or any other matter – and we must resolve as a culture to settle our political disputes the old-fashioned way: using reason, persuasion, and the vote.
