  • The joy of being a sinner

    Thanks to my daughter, Alison, I’ve been listening to Chris Rosebrough, a Lutheran pastor in North Dakota who has a daily podcast, “Fighting for the Faith.”
    He critiques sermons by a number of superstar Christian pastors and speakers who have become more enamored with themselves than with Jesus. Among other things, Rosebrough points out how they mangle or water down scripture, or ignore it altogether.

  • House Speaker: ‘right to work wrong for Kentucky’

    Over the last four months, there has unfortunately been a renewed effort to breathe life into a proposal that most economists declared dead long ago. Supporters call it “right to work”; the rest of us, with the facts on our side, call it “right to work for less.”

    They’re wrong on both counts.
