“Narnia Invaded” by Steven D. Boyer

By idaflo | December 1st, 2010 | No Comments » 

Narnia InvadedI appreciate the insights Steven Boyer shares in his article.  Again we see that  sometimes the medium does not serve the message.
Like so many families, we loved reading The Chronicles of Narnia, both together and as individuals, thus the movies were eagerly anticipated. The boys hoped they would be as good as the films of Tolkien’s books had been.
But both Narnia movies left all three of our sons frustrated, even angry. I texted them recently and asked for more details as to why… “was it because they sacrificed the story for the sake of special effects?” Read More »

8 Ways Fascist Feminists Are Ruining America’s Women

By idaflo | November 6th, 2010 | No Comments » 

by Cassy Fiano (Originally published 8-2-2010)

American women have some of the best lives in the world. We can literally do whatever we want. American women can go to school where we want, we can go to college, we can work wherever we want, we can marry whoever we want, and we can choose to lead whatever kind of life we want to lead. Millions of women in oppressed countries around the world cannot even imagine the freedom that American women so enjoy — and take for granted. We’ve come a long way in less than one hundred short years, but a lot of women can’t see that. Read More »

This Is for You, Joy Behar! A Woman’s Journey from Liberal to Conservative

By idaflo | October 30th, 2010 | 2 Comments » 

Joy Beharby Jim Lakely  on October 28, 2010

Forgive the indulgence, but my wife sent me the following email today. She had to get this off her chest, in writing, to clear her mind for painting in her studio. And I think it’s a great story: One woman’s decades-long journey from indoctrinated liberal to free-thinking conservative.

These are the kind of women that Joy Behar insulted — and probably enraged, if my wife is any guide  — when she called Nevada Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle “a bitch” who should “go to hell.”

In the spirit of Robin of Berkeley, here is the rest of thisMUST POST and link-to article by Jim Lakely.

And my response follows:

Dear Mr. Lakely,  I believe Joy Behar is an extreme example, just another “hood ornament” for strident liberalism/feminism. Great stuff here, your family is blessed twofold; BOTH of you share a gift for writing. Sets off a storm of thought, since all the information on your wife’s evolution/transformation resonates with my experiences since college. Read More »

On Politics and Being a Pastor’s Wife

By idaflo | October 26th, 2010 | 2 Comments » 

Man and Woman with subtext: "Why tell us about it?"

How can a pastor’s wife be so political? First, I come by it organically; my family is devotedly Republican, thus my roots. People I love and deeply respect have become involved politically, and they have made a difference. Real experience has not jaded my perspective.
But why me? Don’t I fear being divisive and offending people at church? Sure, that is a concern. But I make no apologies any more. (Even though I don’t “talk politics” at church. I AM careful.)
But again, why?
When we moved to California, I attended a few community Republican meetings, to ‘take the temperature’ and see what was being said and done in the state and her GOP. Read More »

By idaflo | October 19th, 2010 | No Comments » 

The latest from Steven Crowder.  The people who are being maligned and “fought” by the Obama administration, are people like this…hard working, salt-of-the-earth types.
