Blacks have always been conservative or, more accurately, traditionalists. ThisÂ DNAÂ was embedded in us from the depths of our African ancestry. The basis of this African culture was strict adherence to tradition. These traditions recognized the man as the head of the household, that was his birthright; but in exchange for that birthright, he was responsible for the upkeep of that family â the wife, children and, when needed, the extended family.
"Deleting the âPrince of the Power of the Airâ is not only an outrageous metaphor in regard to spiritual veracity; it is akin to castingÂ OthelloÂ without Iago, orÂ Faustwithout Mephistopheles.Â Â Imagine sitting throughÂ Star WarsÂ with no Darth Vader; only Luke for two hours.Â Â And that may be why it was such a snoozer.Â Â How do you make the war between God and Satan a yawner?Â Â Take the deeper conflict out; as if Jesus was only battling the Harper Valley PTA."
As I lead a church and Christian daycare with multiple employees, I am looking carefully at the health benefits we should provide, including the impact of Obamacare. Most people are now willing to admit that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is not a perfect law. Maybe any law with well over 11 million words is bound to have some problems. But while most of the attention has understandably gone to the millions of Americans who are losing their health coverage or their doctors, the problem of the ACAâs assault on religious liberty still looms large.
Many people at the highest levels of Government and industry have taken a cynical and duplicitous approach to illegal immigration. In a way, itâs symbolic of the approach most average Americans have taken. We rely on immigrant labor to fill jobs that Americans wonât do as a result of the meager wages and perhaps undesirable working conditions immigrants are often subjected to, while complaining about the side effects â over-exhausted social services, ever-multiplying crime rates, and a grave cultural dilution amongst the Border States. Â Do you believe that Comprehensive Immigration Reform would solve these problems or make them worse?
Too often, a male athlete showing promise at an early age is allowed to slide down a slippery slope academically as attention focuses on training and competing. Â Parents and coaches at the junior high school, high school, and college levels must stop exploiting student athletes and show concern for their long-term futures.
