The New York Times estimated Trump […]

Picked Up Pieces from Facebook Postings

| May 10, 2018 | 0 Comments

By George Mitrovich Mostly my columns are about a single subject, as the previous 161 would prove, but not this month. Let me explain: I do several postings a day on Facebook, essentially because it is my blog. Friends have suggested I have my own blog, but even if I did, it is almost certain […]

By George Mitrovich Last month in my column I wrote about one of my heroes, Billy Graham. This month I’m back, mostly, to Donald John Trump, who is as far from William Franklin Graham as heaven from hell. So, I will do here what I haven’t really done before, share a selection of my recent […]

By George Mitrovich Upon the passing of Billy Graham, I posted a tribute to him on Facebook and shared my tribute with close friends I frequently email on issues important to me.

Jesus, Am I a Christian?

| January 2, 2018 | 0 Comments

By George Mitrovich On the day before Christmas, Nicholas Kristoff’s column in The New York Times was entitled, “Cardinal, am I a Christian?” To haters of The Times, who believe it inherently and disgustingly liberal, Mr. Kristoff’s column may seem odd, but it shouldn’t, as the question of Mr. Kristoff’s “Christian standing” is one he […]
