As we approach a new administration, it is important to uphold an element of American exceptionalism—a peaceful transition of power.
There’s been nothing wrong with investigating and challenging illegal voting practices.
But what is absolutely wrong is any call for violent resistance—in this case, to Joe Biden and his election. We’re seeing calls in social media for violent responses, either in the form of rebellion or in the form of martial law.
Not only is this rhetoric dangerous, it runs against principled conservatism. The Founders only declared independence after a long period of abuses by the King, and then used force in self-defense. The Bible admonishes Christians to “submit to the governing authorities.”
The inflammatory rhetoric does nothing to help the conservative movement. It does not stop Biden. It does not ensure a second Trump administration.
It hurts our cause. It should stop.Read More »
Welcome to the new year: 2021.
But let’s take a moment to look at that number and remember what it means. 2,021 what? 2,021 years from the traditional date of the birth of Christ.
In the ancient world, when an old king died and a new king took over, the calendar started again. Ancient dating frequently started with “The first year of King so and so…”
But what do you do when you get a king who will never die?
The answer is the year of our Lord 2021.
During the French Revolution, they tried to start over with year Zero. But look at the French Calendar now…it’s 2021. No matter how much secular culture tries to deride the historical significance of Christ, they are reminded—on every dateline—how important He was and still is.
May the Year of Our Lord, 2021 be a blessed one for you and yours.Read More »
January 5th, 2021 marks a decisive day in this new year, one that will resonate throughout all of ’21 and indeed 2022.
This is because Georgia votes today in runoffs for two United States Senate seats. It’s an election of enormous consequence for the other 49 states because the results will determine whether Republicans or Democrats control the Senate—and thus greatly impacting every U.S. citizen.
Salem is supporting David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler—and encouraging Georgians to turnout to return these two incumbents to office. Their opponents—John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock—are both very left wing. The Rev. Warnock may, in fact, be the most radical major party candidate of the era.
A GOP majority will ensure a check on President-elect Biden. They’ll refuse to confirm radical judicial appointments while continuing robust spending on the American military.
Georgians, please vote! And if you know anyone in Georgia, please call them and urge them to vote today.Read More »
It’s easy to dismiss the Senate elections in Georgia as just another vote to decide two more seats in Congress—and that, ultimately, it may not be all that consequential. I’m sure some of our fellow Americans—and more than a few Georgians—wonder what the point of voting is at all, especially given the outcome of the recent presidential elections.
But I’d urge those Georgians with doubts or who wonder if their vote matters to recognize that the elections in their state do, indeed, matter. A lot.
An unconstrained left means a move toward socialized medicine, the Green New Deal, and much higher taxes for many Americans. The only way that can be stopped is if Georgia voters cast their ballots in the upcoming runoff elections for the U.S. Senate. Your voices will matter, and your votes will be consequential.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a real difference for all Americans.Read More »
