Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on December 14, 2020 |

First, something cute. Just because, well, we need something cute right now, and cute is better than the rant I was tentatively going to start with. The meme and the following devotional came from a good friend who sends me prayers and devotionals daily. I don’t often share them here on the blog, as I […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 16, 2015 |

Another week has whizzed by. I was busy all week preparing for the big garage sale at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, which didn’t leave much time for writing, but I did get a few thousand words done on my current work in progress. How was your week? I hope it was productive and, […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on March 4, 2013 |

A recent article in The Dallas Morning News offered an interesting take on the Bible. Gordon Keith, an Emmy-winning broadcaster for KECK-AM (1310) The Ticket, in Dallas, suggested that the Bible is an ongoing project. In his article he says “It’s OK to step back and see the Bible with your own eyes.” I’m sure […]

Friday Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 28, 2012 |

Texas Gov. Rick Perry either had a recent meltdown, or he truly believes that the doctrine of the separation of church and state is a myth devised by Satan to drive Christians from public life. He also said, “American families are under siege and that Christian Warriors must defend the nation against secular attack.” Separation […]

Posted by mcm0704 on August 10, 2011 |

I’m a bit confused. Aren’t we supposed to have a distinct separation between church and state? So why are evangelical Christians allowed to cross that line at will? Mind you, I am a Christian, and I espouse all that the religion stands for. I just don’t espouse politicians using religion to launch their political campaign. […]

A Little Clarification on Separation of Church and State

Posted by mcm0704 on July 1, 2010 |

Right up front, let me say that this post is not intended to stir a debate about religion, forms of religion, or which religion is the best. My personal beliefs are that everyone is entitled to believe, or not believe, and one right does not trump another. That said, I do want to talk about […]

Separation of Church and State

Posted by mcm0704 on March 19, 2010 |

Let’s get it right…. One of the issues to arise in the debate in Texas over school curriculum and textbooks is the Separation of Church and State as mandated in first Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. Those who are against the inclusion in textbooks of any mention of God, religion, or the […]

Could We Find a Middle Ground?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2010 |

The state of Texas is in a flap about curriculum content for social studies and science classes. At issue is whether new social studies textbooks should include information about the religious influences on people who had historical significance. All of us who even faintly remember our American history know that religion and religious beliefs played […]
