While visiting an art museum the Burkeanson was able to tell all the stories of Greek and Roman Mythology and the Old Testament, but he knew very little of the stories from the life of Christ. He has read of Jesus and his impact in history books, but he knew very little of the parables and [...]
Best wishes to our Jewish and Christian readers this Holy Week. Since the contributors and editors of this weblog once more shall be bringing history forward so that we may be a part of very, profound, historical events, Reflection shall be on holiday for the next two weeks. Remember we can’t change the past, but [...]
Sorry folks I just can’t manage a Happy New Year today. I have the worst cold I have had since the invention of Zicam nasal zinc swabs. Because of course our radical leftist POTUS appointed a radical leftist head of the FDA; who forced Zicam to stop making those swaps on the flimsiest of complaints [...]
It pains me that so many of my fellow Jews think that protecting their own Religious Freedom now means intruding on the Religious Freedom of others. A town hall with a manger scene in no way restricts my liberty. But declaring that the mere mention of certain religous holidays is “offensive” restricts the religous freedom of us [...]
With every Christmas card I wrote, with every Christmas e-mail I thumb-typed, I also express to the readers of this TOWNHALL weblog, my social media readers a very, blessed Christmas Season. May the Lord be with each of us.
Today is the third Sunday of Advent; there is just a little less than two weeks until the start of the Christmas season. During the Advent season it is a time to remember especially that the Lord is with us.
In my little corner of the reddest state of all we live in the shadow of Camp Pendeleton USMC base. Since the marines are a fixture here, the cheering sights at our Christmas Parade may not mean anything. But I will take any happy signs I can get. The parade featured the brilliant high kicks [...]
A man in the uniform of a US soldier praises the killing of US soldiers and his commanding officers do nothing. Duty and Honor mean nothing, political correctness is to die for. We serve not the Constitution but the god of Diversity. Those who have given, and will give their lives are mocked by their [...]
The Cutest little Cinderella just showed up at my door, crying her eyes out. Her mom tried to coax a “trick or treat” out of her or a “thank you.” But she kept on crying. I think she knows its wrong to beg for candy. I think she is saying “c’mon mom a real Princess [...]
Until April 16, The Town Hall weblog shall be celebrating the two great feast of our civilization. The Passover and the Triduum. This weblog wishes all contributors, editors, subscribers, and readers a very, happy and faithful feast days.
Happy 18th Birthday, Trey Smith
Happy New Year, 2009!
One of the most overlooked holiday films is “The Muppets Christmas Carol”. Seriously. Don’t laugh … well, not at me, you may laugh at the film. Aside from being a fun Muppet movie, it is actually a surprisingly faithful interpretation of the classic tale. Michael Caine is an excellent Ebeneezer, the Muppets perform their various [...]
The Anchoress links to this story about our troops bringing Christmas to the children of Iraq. If this doesn’t bring a lump to your throat you need to be visited by Three Spirits. http://hotair.com/archives/2008/12/24/video-troops-need-you/ The men and women of our armed forces have made my son’s Christmas safer and brought happiness to children on the [...]
Long before the arrival of the BurkeanSon I wondered how to manage the great holiday gift-fest that strikes American children every December. I watched, often with horror, as sweet little cherubs turned into greedy, present obsessed monsters every December 25. Even the children who were polite and grateful in the face of the present overload were [...]
