Fuque France

After reading this, we probably should have let the Germans keep France.

Assessing Team Trump

In the first three weeks of his Presidency, President Trump has doused gasoline on the system and lit the match. For both better and worse. (a) His first press conference included a dismissal of CNN as “fake news”. (It was deserved on their end.) (b) His Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, stepped in it by making […]

More on John and P.J. Smyth

Deb at TWW has this piece. If the allegations are true, then John Smyth needs a millstone around his neck and…. But that goes without saying. But what to make of P.J.? As I said in my last piece, he had better be telling the truth. It is possible that he could have been in […]

P.J. Smyth, His Father, and Covenant Life Church

I figured it would be a matter of time before TWW caught onto the story of John Smyth, the father of Covenant Life Church senior pastor P.J. Smyth.

How Many Rock Bottoms Will Tiger Woods Hit?

My $0.02 on Barnabas Piper

Our friends at The Wartburg Watch are having quite the row over Barnabas Piper, the son of John Piper. His defenders will point out that the divorce was due to his wife having an affair, whereas his detractors (among whom are the TWW crowd) will point out the hard line that John Piper–Barnabas’ father–has taken […]
