In the last administration, Trump served as a voice for the pushback against Colin K’s take a knee movement.
That particular political movement has faded away but identitarian politics are still alive and well, looking for new ways to divide us. Amid the brief explosion of popularity of BLM, before the scandal-shrouded group melted back into the shadows, it managed to wrest a concession from the NFL. The playing of a supposed ‘black’ anthem, sandwiched between America the Beautiful and

We all know the rule, don’t we? It’s just like the rules would be in Stalin’s USSR, Mao’s China, or even North Korea. Anyone seen NOT showing enthusiastic fealty to the command of the regime will face punishment. It’s like a dangerously weaponized version of the Emporer’s New Clothes.
In the children’s story, all it took to break the spell was a little courage and a refusal to buy into the lie. This photo represents a similar spirit.

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
