What The H*ll Is Going On?

This is going to be an unusual post. Not only do I not have a picture to discuss, but the topic runs deeper in me, closer to the bone, than most things that I write about. One evening, about a week or so ago, I drove to other side of our town to pick up my sons after an event. On our way back home we were nearly forced off the Interstate by an erratic, reckless driver. Flashing my lights and honking my horn to avoid a collision caused the driver of the vehicle to smash on his brakes and weave in and out of traffic, all clearly in an effort to...

If you meet the Weinstein on the road, kill him.

If you meet the Weinstein on the road, kill him.

Producer Harvey Weinstein, director James Toback, photographer Terry Richardson and… the list keeps growing of media markers who, blazing down Rodeo Drive or Madison Ave, leave a wake of sexually harassed, molested and raped victims trailing out behind them.    What do these producers of our media culture have in common? If you guessed that they work in an industry where an endless stream of young, female wanna-be’s can be convinced to do almost anything to get their fifteen minutes of fame, you’re right. If you guessed that they work in an...

ISIS out of Raqqa and a War on Kurds

            (Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com) With lots of news coming out of the Middle East, its time to get the bigger picture into focus. I had a chance to sit down with Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com and do just that, covering the fall of Raqqa and what seems to be a war with the Kurds of Iraq. Find our conversation here. I do my bit at 1:11:50, but if I were you, I’d listen to the whole show. Cheers! Jeff Gardner Picture Christians...

More than they can bear

(Members of the San Francisco 49ers knelt during the national anthem before the game against the Colts in Indianapolis. Photo Credit – Michael Conroy/Associated Press) On Sunday, October 8, 2017, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of the San Francisco 49ers vs. Indianapolis Colts game when members of the 49ers football team took a knee during the national anthem. The Vice President tweeted, among other things, that, “While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect...

What God Wants

(Mourners at a memorial for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. Photo credit EPA-EFE Photo.) It is October 5th, 2017, and we are just four days out from the horrible shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 1, 2017. While we are focusing on lots of particular details; how many guns were used in shooting, how many rounds were fired and how long they were fired, we still have no clue as to what led Stephen Paddock to open fire from a hotel window, raining death and murder down on hundreds of people before killing himself. A horror and...

The Treacherous Image

On Monday, August 14th, 2017, a crowd of several hundred rioters in Durham, North Carolina, pulled down a nearly one hundred year old statue of an unknown Confederate soldier. As they did, the mob chanted “No Cops, No KKK, No Fascist USA.” As if the anarchist timbre of the crowd wasn’t unsettling enough, the scenes of near hysteria that followed the toppling of the statue were truly disturbing. As soon as the bent form of the statue hit the ground, several members of the mob rushed forwarded to hit, spit on and kick the focus of their rage....

Mosul is free! Sort of.

Mosul is free! Sort of.

This is going to be an unusual post. Usually short with some unusual images, two, taken with my Samsung Note 5. I am just back from Iraq, no more than 24 hour from writing this. I have LOTS to tell you and share by way of photographs, too. But I wanted to address the big news, recently released, that the fight against ISIS in Iraq is over, and the city of Mosul is free! Well, not exactly. (The stairs leading up to the tomb of Jonah. Iraq, 2017) Among the many places that I went and things that I did while in Iraq, I was in Mosul and climb the...

Let Her Thrive

This May/June the Picture Christians Project will launch a new initiative called Thrive. The idea behind Thrive is that while the war against the Islamic State in Iraq is being won, the battle for the lives and futures of its victims is just beginning. Thrive will coordinate activities for the Assyrian Christian and Yezidi victims of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, taking real steps designed to help them regain their sense of self and self worth, the both of which have been battered almost to death after nearly three years of war and...

Joy

It’s a new year again. Among all the gifts given and received this Christmastide, the one thing that most people want, at least according to the National Institute of Health – is happiness, joy. And why not? The first gift of the nativity given by the heavenly hosts to the shepherds was the “good news of great joy” because “a savior has been born for you, who is Messiah and Lord.” That is good news, and yet during the Christmastide so many of us fall into depression, a dark rabbit hole from which some of us cannot escape. After almost...

You will be a blessing to others

  This past November 8th, 2016, we Americans were blessed. After almost two years of argument and tension, we stepped into the voting booth and changed, without violence or terror, the president and political party that will govern our country. This is no small accomplishment. I say this not to celebrate the victory of one candidate over another, but rather to take stock of the great blessing that is our orderly and peaceful transfer of power. That we as Americans are able to change political parties and personalities without violence or...
