This is Toby Sumpter. Today is Friday, August 20, 2021.

Politics of Sex Conference


We really believe that the Fight Laugh Feast Conference is unlike any other conservative Christian conference in the world, maybe even the universe. We here at CrossPolitic believe that we in the West are suffering from a really bad case of BS runs. From Fox News to CBN, we suffer fools gladly, and serve our flattery up with slick hair cuts and big boobs. Haven’t you had enough of that already? At the Fight Laugh Feast Conference we don’t promise to always be right, but we promise to be afraid of no truth and to tell it unvarnished with the sharp edge always pointed ourselves first. The whole world began with a wedding in a garden, and the whole world is heading toward another wedding in a garden city. Sex is political, what happens in the bedroom never stays there. We are building cultures and kingdoms in our families, in our living rooms, at the dining room table, and yes, in our bedrooms. So join us in Nashville, TN Sep. 9-11 with Voddie Baucham, Douglas Wilson, David Bahnsen, Doug TenNaple, George Grant, C.R. Wiley, Gary Demar, Ben Merkle, Summer Jaeger of the Sheologians, Nancy Wilson, Bekah Merkle, A.D. Robles, Darren Doane, and more. We kick off with beer and Psalms on Thursday night and close it all out with a family style Sabbath dinner Saturday evening. 

What about the people falling from planes? That was Four, that was Five Days Ago

The Talban is Having an Existential Crisis?

Safe Passage for Americans?

Play: 0:44-0:53

Safe Passage? Safe Passage? There are reports of 10-15,000 Americans still in Afghanistan, and reports today that the US State Department is charging American citizens to be evacuated. You can COVID vaccines for free. You can get stimulus checks sent around like AOL CDs coming in the mail (back in the day). But you can’t get safe passage back home when your country suddenly pulls out of a terrorist region. This is one of the legitimate jobs of civil government – protecting the lives of the innocent. Punishing criminals and bad guys.

Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat

It’s so Bad Even the British Parliament Holds Biden in Contempt for Afghan Debacle


The United Kingdom’s Parliament on Wednesday held President Joe Biden in contempt for his withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, calling the move “catastrophic” and “shameful.”

Members of Parliament, including some who served alongside U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, accused Biden of “throwing us and everybody else to the fire” with his decision to withdraw. They also attacked Biden for his “shameful” criticism of the Afghan National Army and said it was “dishonourable” to blame Afghanistan’s fighting force for the Taliban’s takeover.

Bomb Threat on Capitol Hill


When asked about it, Biden said that was like four days ago, or five days ago at least.
