  • What would ‘Christian America’ really look like?

        Lately, there’s been a lot of speculation about why so many self-styled Christians voted for Donald Trump, especially given Trump’s obvious love of himself and money, his habitual lying, and other major character concerns.
        It seems everyone has settled on 80 percent as the reliable percentage of “Christian conservatives” who voted for Trump. They appear to believe, generally, that whatever faults he has, he is nonetheless carrying out what could be called a “pro-Christian” agenda.

  • Finding gold

        Two weeks ago a group of people got a look at Bedford’s newest business when Beale’s Brewery opened its doors to host a party. The brew-pub will hold a soft opening this Thursday at noon and open to the public on Saturday.
        This development recycles existing developed property. Instead of plowing over undeveloped land, the developer made use of one of the old industrial buildings that have been moldering along the railroad tracks for decades.

  • Northam, Gillespie set for fall battle

        Last week’s gubernatorial primary didn’t produce any surprise winners, but it still didn’t turn out as largely predicted.

  • Spiritual darkness lifted Donald Trump

        When Pope Francis met with our man-child president last week at the Vatican, the leader of the universal Catholic Church looked as though he’d rather be anywhere else in the universe except where he was.
         Trump was grinning like the proverbial Cheshire cat, but the Pope wasn’t smiling; not at all. We know, of course, who – among the two of them – is most respected around the world, and it certainly isn’t Donald Trump.

  • Rebuild our Navy

        The cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase early last month was amazing. In a precision attack, the base was hit by 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles in 60 seconds. According to a Wikipedia article, 60 missiles were launched, but one fizzled and fell in the sea.
