    LCMS Blog ^ | March 24, 2014 | Matthew Harrison
    You’re tired of hearing about Hobby Lobby and the Supreme Court, tired of all the talk of fines and health-care plans and reproductive rights, tired of being bombarded with words spoken in anger from both sides of the aisle. You want to put your fingers in your ears, switch the channel, and wait for the ruling and the rest of it to just go away. But even though you are tired, even though you’ve grown weary of having the same discussions about the same points, Hobby Lobby and fines and health-care plans still matter. They matter because your country –...

    Hot Springs Arkansas Act 746 Open Carry Walk The Harrison City Council was asked about the cities position on Act 746, which seems to have brought Arkansas law in line with the State and Federal constitutions.  The law reformed previous Arkansas law, which made it illegal to carry weapons in Arkansas, with exceptions, to one that made it illegal to carry weapons with the intent to use them illegally. Attorney General McDaniel, a Democrat, issued an opinion that the the new law does not allow open carry.   That opinion is dissected here.   The local media in Arkansas is starting...

    In 1963 President Kennedy recognized Berkeley Plantation as the site of the first official Thanksgiving when the small ship the Margaret landed at Harrison Landing on the James River (upstream from Jamestown) in 1619, carrying 38 men after a perilous journey from England. The small group of carefully chosen craftsmen immediately marked their arrival on Dec. 4, 1619 with an act of Thanksgiving, led by their Captain, John Woodlief. They fell on their knees on the riverbank, and Captain Woodlief ordained that this day should be commemeorated annually as a day of Prayer and Thanksgiving. This was not Captain Woodlief's...

    Marriage and the Church Someone quipped, "The world is moving so fast these days that the one who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it." I thought rather cynically about this quote as I listened to the Supreme Court argue over the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Just a decade and a half ago, this legislation was signed into law, defining marriage for federal purposes as the union of one man and one woman. DOMA came as a safeguard against individual states redefining marriage and forcing the federal government (the whole nation!) to treat same-sex...

Matthew Harrison told The State Journal Register during a visit to the convention of the synod’s Central Illinois District at the Crowne Plaza Springfield. Harrison, 50, said the 2.3-million-member synod doesn’t oppose contraception overall, but it does oppose the emergency-contraception products known as Plan B and Ella because of the possibility that they can prevent a...

Harrison, who was pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne in the 1990s and early 2000s, was elected last year to head the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a 6,200-congregation denomination with 2.3 million baptized members.

Board members also said they plan to review whether they can recoup the money Ellis has been paid. "This is clearly fraud — fraud to steal from the state of New Jersey pension fund," board...

So I began to think, study, search, and pray....

Although the opera was wonderful, I dare say I was even more impressed with the architecture of the entire center.

In fact, the beauty and style of Lincoln Center could be said to rival the music created within. I had always...

His fourth-quarter pick sealed New England’s victory.

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 1 - Scientific tests have led American intelligence agencies and government scientists to conclude with near certainty that North Korea sold processed uranium to Libya, bolstering earlier indications that the reclusive state exported sensitive fuel for atomic weapons, according to officials with access to the intelligence. The determination, which has circulated among senior government officials in recent weeks, has touched off a hunt to determine if North Korea has also sold uranium to other countries, including Iran and Syria. So far, there is no evidence that such additional transactions took place. Nonetheless, the conclusion about the uranium transfer...

    FOXBORO, Mass. - One quarterback played up to expectations in Sunday's AFC divisional playoff game because all the Patriots ever ask Tom Brady to do is win. As the seasons roll on and each trip to Foxboro turns into Groundhog Day for Peyton Manning, it appears that Manning will be Dan Marino to Brady's Joe Montana. Marino had the records. Montana had the rings. By the time it all ends in Jacksonville next month, Brady may be tied with Joe Cool as a three-time Super Bowl MVP. He may have only thrown for 144 yards in Sunday's victory but the...

    If you have visited the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia, you know that it is called the Arlington of the Confederacy due to the fact that many famous Confederate people are buried there. Upon entering the cemetery, one finds Confederate President Jefferson Davis first. Then you drive to what is called on the map as President's Circle. In the middle is James Monroe. A few yards away is John Tyler. Aside from these two presidents, there are 26 Confederate generals buried here. Among the more famous are JEB Stuart, George Pickett, Henry Heth and Fitzhugh Lee. John Tyler was an...

    ...Kennedy did only slightly better in 1960, scoring 49.8% against Nixon. His plurality was one of the smallest in U.S. history..... This election was significant in that it marked the occasion when TV played a major, perhaps determining, part. Roosevelt had already demonstrated the importance of radio when his skill at the media, honed in his "Fireside Chats" as president, helped to secure his landslide re-election in 1936. In 1960, the media (overwhelmingly pro-Democrat) judged Kennedy an outright winner in the TV debates. It was said that his team persuaded the studio to turn up the lights so that Nixon...

    DEAUVILLE, France - Roman Polanski finally took home his Academy Award statue for best director this weekend, nearly six months after winning for "The Pianist." Harrison Ford, a friend of Polanski and the star of his 1988 movie "Frantic," handed the director the prize Sunday at the Deauville film festival. Ford also had announced Polanski's win at the March 23 ceremony in Los Angeles, which the director didn't attend. Polanski faces arrest in the United States since pleading guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl. He was charged with rape and five other felonies in 1977. As part of...

    Who do you suppose uttered those insightful words? Given his affection for the word "disturbed," one might think it was South Dakota senator Tom Daschle. But, alas, it was QuorumCall.com's Leftist Twit of the Week, Harrison Ford! During a trip to Spain, defender of the universe, Han Solo, expressed concern that his country was headed in the wrong direction. Despite numerous attempts, QuorumCall.com was unable to reach Admiral Akbhar or R2-D2 for comment. Here's the rest.

    NEW DELHI: Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has "blatantly lied" to the United States about the supply of Pakistani nuclear technology to North Korea, a leading South Asia expert has said.

Harrison, who is the Asia Director at Washington-based Center for International Policy, was also quoted as saying, "British intelligence contacts at the Pakistani High Commission in London last year obtained incriminating documents that Musharraf was...

    I hate when this happens.  You've enjoyed a number of roles an actor has performed, only to find out...  Well here goes The infobabe on Fox News just reported that Harrison Ford wanted to set the record straight regarding his support for Bush's efforts on the impending war with Iraq.  Through his publicist Ford stated that he support regime change.  He wants it in both nations, Iraq and the United States. Harrison's stock just went to zero in my book. Over an out...

    Friday, November 8, 2002 6:21AM EST A lapse looks costly By BARRY SAUNDERS, Staff Writer I'll tell you one thing. If the sight of Donnie Harrison traipsing through the woods with bloodhounds wasn't enough to get Wake County's black voters to the polls, nothing will ever be enough. Harrison, in his TV ads and in an interview with me, noted that he favors bloodhounds to search for lost Alzheimer's patients, children and criminal suspects, but his use of them nonetheless sent chills down my spine because of their historical symbolism. Judging by voter turnout, Harrison's use of dogs that were...
