First full US tour in a couple of years for Terror. I think I'll see if I can get my sons to go to the Chicago show with me. Continue reading

I heard and read opinions from some folks ridiculing prayer after the Texas church shooting. There was ridicule of those who suggested praying for the victims as well as ridicule of the victims themselves, "A lot of good praying in a church did them" was a sentiment offered by some....

Guy flouts existing laws and partly due to a cock-up by the Air Force is able to obtain guns he should not have. Goes on murder spree in Texas church. Murderer is neutralized by law-abiding, legal gun owner. Collectivist busybodies have a hissy fit demanding more laws to restrict gun... Continue reading

#2 Son had a birthday this week. As the first picture attests he can be quite the goof. He's also the most inked up member of our family. He's becoming a fine young man. His primary occupation at present is as a teacher's aide at a small private school for... Continue reading

I realize that the items on the graphic are reasons why some think Mrs. DeVos is unqualified for the position. As long as that waste of space and money known as the Department of Education must exist, I feel the aforementioned items are perfectly good reasons why she should be... Continue reading

Pileated Woodpecker Downey Woodpecker 1.) We've been seeing more Downy Woodpeckers at the feeder and the suet cage. The American Tree Sparrows which were hogging the feeder have decreased in number lately. There's one Pileated Woodpecker who has been showing up pretty much every day. It doesn't feed very long...

The Gospel contemplates every descendant of Adam as a fallen, polluted, hell-deserving and helpless sinner. The grace which the Gospel publishes is his only hope. All stand before God convicted as transgressors of His holy law, as guilty and condemned criminals, who are not merely awaiting sentence, but the execution... Continue reading

The Walls Will Fall is an 5 song EP from Terror. One of the songs is a cover of Madball's "Step To You." Terror doesn't break new ground with this release, they just do what Terror does so well: Metal infused chugga-chugga hardcore with a boatload of energy and intensity.... Continue reading

From the beginning of human history, rejection of God's authority is an attempt at self-deification. "The rebellion of man against the explicit command of God was an ethical rebellion. The fall of man was ethical rather than metaphysical. It involved his whole being, body and soul, and the curse of... Continue reading

I was beginning to think nothing could dislodge the NFL "protests" from the top of the MSM's list of important news items with which to badger the unwashed masses in the hopelessly ignorant flyover states. Then Harvey Weinstein came along. More accurately details of his long career as a sexual... Continue reading

The egalitarian doctrine is manifestly contrary to all the facts established by biology and by history. Only fanatical partisans of this theory can contend that what distinguishes the genius from the dullard is entirely the effect of postnatal influences. Theory and History, p. 331 Continue reading

When I pick up the phone and it's one of those calls from "Windows Technical Support" I will often engage the poor sod on the other end in conversation. It's really not fair. The script reader in the Philippines, India, or wherever it is they are calling from doesn't know... Continue reading

These busybodies trust the government so much they would like to see the populace disarmed leaving only the military and police armed. Listening to some sports talking heads go on and on about Cam Newton's transgression against women sportswriters it was quite clear that so-called progressives wish to control not... Continue reading

Hearing about the passing of Hugh Hefner got me thinking. Did not read any online comments about this. I suspect the comments would fall into one of two camps. Camp A: He was a sexist pig who made a living objectifying women. Camp B: He was a pioneer who helped... Continue reading

A long time ago when I started up this little vanity project I initially named it Metal Dad - A Hardcore Follower of Jesus Christ. I was writing about things that occupied the majority of my time: faith, family, and hardcore music. The name was changed due to a sort... Continue reading

I haven't heard so much chatter about whether to sit, stand, or kneel since the sweeping reforms of Vatican II when the Eucharist Liturgy was profoundly altered (to its detriment, in my opinion). But today the discussion is centered around the participants of a game refusing to take part in... Continue reading

When we were young TV commercials for Bob Evans sausage were on frequently. I remember when one of those commercials came on my Dad would say that he would never eat that sausage. When we would ask why he would say, "There ain't one damn hog on that farm. All... Continue reading
