In 1979, The Village People recorded their hit song“Macho Man.” However, in 2014, it’s important to remember that a macho man doesn’t have to be a pro athlete, chief executive or head of state. No, a macho man is a husband who serves his wife, father who loves his children and son who honors his parents.

Believe it or not, Facebook users can now identify themselves as male, female or other. That’s right. “Other” is a newly designated category of human being. But let’s be honest. Social media outlets can resort to all the social engineering efforts they want to, yet they will never change the truth that gender is not a social construct.

Like the rest of us mere mortals, Pope Francis recently had to endure the hassle of renewing his passport. That’s right. The man on Earth who’s probably the least likely to take down a plane – let alone utter a bad word – needs to prove his identity when trotting the globe to spread the message of peace and love. Yet, rumor has it that on the very same day the Holy Father received his updated international travel permit, Barack Obama called the Pontiff and promised if that he moved to Chicago and registered to vote Democrat he wouldn’t need any form of photo ID whatsoever.
In 1970, Stevie Wonder released the hit record“Signed, Sealed and Delivered.” And in 2014 it seems that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is working on a reelection theme that could be titled ‘Signed, Sealed and Defeated.’ That’s right. When Tom Corbett signed the $2.3 billion transportation bill into law - and in the minds of manybroke his own no-tax promise – the Governor may have sealed his fate. And, according to lackluster polling data, it appears that fate might very well be defeat.
Just days after announcing that he was gay, NFL prospect Michael Sam received a standing ovation at the halftime of a University of Missouri college basketball game. But realize these cheers speak less about the supposed courage of Michael Sam and more about the conceit of the crowd– which is actually clapping for what they perceive to be their own historic level of tolerance and acceptance. In short, people consumed by self-righteousness are more interested in reveling in their own sense of glory than rejoicing in the glorified word of God - which in this situation requires prayer for Michael Sam, not praise.
