Jesus told a parable about a rich man and a poor man. In this life, the poor man needed compassion. In an after life, their roles were exactly reversed.

To me, this parable carries a powerful message that applies exactly to President Trump and his enablers and to immigrants, who are not…

Have you looked around lately at America? Do you even recognize it? All the hate and vitriol heard in the news has split our country apart and changed it to a degree that it’s almost impossible to recognize. It’s definitely not the country most of us grew up in.

I remember debating…

People who deal with animals and the animal welfare laws in North Carolina know that some of them are very weak and do not adequately address all of the elements needed to provide law enforcement officers with the tools they need to protect the well-being of animals and provide…

I’ll admit that I am old enough to remember the song, “Making Believe.” And as a kid I “made believe” as much as did any other child. Yet, with age “painted wings and giant things” make way for other things — hopefully real life. Yet, in our current…

A recent columnist castigated the left for showing outrage over the separation of children from their parents at the southern border. However, she was not comparing apples to apples.

Our country is currently separating children from their parents when they cross the U.S. border. These people are…
