I have been pondering the question posed in the title of this post for quite some time. I believe the main source of this pondering is the furor that is ongoing in America over the rights of individual business owners, who happen to be Christians and hold certain religious values, to refuse to service certain segments of our population. I was informed last year in a discussion on this blog that these Christian → Read More

Yes, I came from the baby boomer generation – I joined hands with many of my fellow citizens and played around in the sandbox until all of the sand was gone. During my time I was not a willing participant but as the “norm” changed so did I…

If you have followed Political Realities for any length of time, you will know I am a big fan of Southern Gospel music. That is especially true if that music is performed by a quartet, but even more so if it contains a message beyond the harmonies and the music. Such is the case with the song I want to share with you this afternoon.
Brian Free and Assurance have been singing Southern Gospel → Read More
As many of you may know from the few music videos I have shared in the past, I am a big fan of Southern Gospel music. Specifically, a fan of the quartets. I know you may not be a fan of this type of music, you may not even like Christian music, but I still want to share a video of a song that was performed by The Kingdom Heirs at the National Quartet → Read More
I have to admit, I like the Christmas season. Not the commercialization of the holiday, or the traffic jams of epic proportions in the mall parking lot. What I enjoy is the time off from my job, from the rush of working and doing business in America. I enjoy spending time with my wife, my daughters, my son-in-law, and of course, our granddaughter. I enjoy buying gifts that other people either need or want. → Read More
I really don’t have it in me to write this morning, so instead, I thought I would share a new song my wife discovered on YouTube. This comes to you courtesy of Tammy. She was very impressed by the song, which is not easy for a singer to do, and that’s good enough for me. It is indicative of what this season is supposed to be about. I hope you enjoy Becky Kelley as → Read More
Before our pastor preached his sermon yesterday morning, he followed a usual pattern and asked someone to sing a song. It was a couple with whom I am familiar, although they do not attend our church as their home church. The song they sang was one I had not heard before and it’s title was simply, “Thank God”. It mentioned that we should give thanks to God for everything and if nothing else, thank → Read More
I thought this song was very appropriate for posting on Easter Sunday. It is a group that many of you may not know, but if you are familiar with Southern Gospel music, you will surely know who Gold City is. The group members are Brian Free, Ivan Parker, Steve Lacey, and Tim Riley. I hope you enjoy a great song with a wonderful message, There Rose A Lamb.
This is the first time I have ventured off into the realm of religion on Political Realities, but as I write this post, I want you to know I feel stronger about this topic than any other I have put to pen and paper or a keyboard. I know some of my readers are of the Catholic faith, but for the most part, I am not aware of how you believe about Jesus Christ, → Read More
