Comments on the Comments

By Randy Alcorn | December 28, 2007
Next week, after New Year’s day, I hope to post some 2007 pictures. Meanwhile, people have been remarking to me offline that the comments on my blogs have become a battle zone. It seems I’ve offended people, for reasons sometimes apparent, sometimes not.

Joel Stein, Starbucks and Heaven

Now, the man in the picture is not a Christmas shepherd, but Joel Stein, a prominent columnist for The Los Angeles Times. He’s written features for Time magazine, and has impressive journalistic credentials. He says this of himself on the front page of his website: “I’m the guy who loves porn and hates America.” He’s known for his column where he said he not only opposes the war in Iraq, he opposes U.S. troops. Clearly he’s a man who says what he thinks.

This is my fourth and final blog on presidential candidates. I said I’d comment on Ron Paul, the Texas congressman with libertarian ideals who is running for the Republican nomination.

IRS regulations and…why Mike Huckabee above the other Candidates?

By Randy Alcorn | November 19, 2007
There was discussion in the comments on my previous blog about whether I am violating IRS regulations by supporting Mike Huckabee. Since there is misunderstanding on this, let me clarify. (Not just for me, but for countless Christian leaders and pastors in the same position.)

Sacrificing Children on a Republican Altar?

By Randy Alcorn | November 13, 2007
When I wrote my blog last week in support of Mike Huckabee, I didn’t know what I was getting into. My intention was to write two blogs, then go back to normal blog life, which for me doesn’t involve politics.

Why I Support Mike Huckabee for President

First, some background, so you know where I’m coming from—and not. In fact, most of this blog will be background, and the following blog will deal more with Mike Huckabee and his opposing candidates.
