Michael Dubruiel, RIP

Shocking news at Amy Welborn‘s blog–her husband, Michael Dubruiel, collapsed and died this morning at the gym. Please pray for Amy and her children. This news hit me very hard. I had to go back and read her blog several times to believe it true. I’ve only met each of them once–Michael at the NCCE…

More on Maciel

A key source is the Life-After-RC blog, which says: Rumblings began last week about how the Legionaries were gathered in bits and bobs to inform them that the founder was indeed guilty of…

Lincoln … Darwin … Day?

February 12 will be the 200th birthday of both men. Darwinists are pulling out all stops to celebrate their man. I haven’t heard about anyone doing anything similar to remember Lincoln … at least not here in Dixie.
