On Veils for Christian Women

For two-thousand years, Christian women have been covering their heads in prayer, whether it be in a chapel, or in public, or at home. It's a custom as old as Christianity itself. (Technically, it's older.) And Western women still do it, without even realizing it, and even if they're not religious at all. Take, for... Continue Reading →

Reclaiming Christmas from Commercialism

We've all heard it a million times. Christians decry the commercialization of Christmas (and rightly so) then feel offended when "Merry Christmas" is replaced with "Happy Holidays." I fully understand the reason for this frustration, but at the same time I think while we're desperately fighting to save a hundred-year old tradition of Christmas shopping,... Continue Reading →

Corruption in the Catholic Church was extremely high. There were terrible popes. Sexual license was rampant throughout the Church but most especially in Rome.... Continue Reading →

Poetry is in Battle

I wear a ring that has some runic letters engraved on it. Rune is the written language of the ancient Germanic people (today the indigenous people of the U.K., Scandinavia, Iceland, Germany and Austria).
