A Goodbye to A Day In His Court

parting is such sweet sorrow

by John Ellis

After four years, the time has come to say goodbye to A Day In His Court.

When I started this blog, I did so with the goal of being able to monetize it. While I never achieved that, the writing skills I learned and honed while writing posts for A Day In His Court played a large role in helping me land (and keep) a writing job with PJ Media. Ironically, the time I spend writing for this blog is money out of my pocket because it’s time that I could spend writing for PJ Media. And while that’s one of the reasons why I believe that the time has come to shutter A Day In His Court, it’s not the only reason. In fact, it’s not the most important reason.

Catching Up With My PJ Media Articles

by John Ellis

It’s been over a month since I’ve shared my favorite PJ Media articles that I’ve written with the readers of this blog. The interim has been rather uneventful. Some of my articles have done well, but none have done great. That being said, I did write several articles for PJ Media over the last month or so that I’m proud of and/or think hold interest for the readers of A Day In His Court. Click on the titles below to be redirected to the article.

#BelieveWomen Versus the Presumption of Innocence


shame

by John Ellis

You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the Lord you God is giving you. Deuteronomy 16:19-20

During a test over the state capitals, my fourth-grade teacher accused me of cheating. Walking around the classroom, she noticed a piece of paper sticking out of my crowded, disorganized desk. That paper happened to be a previously taken quiz over the state capitals. While my classmates left for music class, the teacher held me behind.

Brett Kavanaugh, the St. Louis Naked Bike Ride, and the Left’s Selective Outrage

Yesterday on Facebook, while linking to this post I wrote a little over two months ago, I said:

This past summer, my family unfortunately found ourselves in the middle of the St. Louis Naked Bike Ride. My subsequent PJ Media article about it was picked up by several St. Louis media outlets, most of whom mocked me (I was asked to appear on the NBC affiliate, but was driving through Ohio at the time). I was ridiculed online by strangers and acquaintances alike (don’t worry, I’m used to it). I’m curious how those who mocked me for being upset that my family was exposed to genitalia are responding to the latest Kavanaugh accusation that he exposed his genitalia at a college party. I’m going to guess that they are responding quite differently this time than they did to me.

I’m not intending this to be a commentary on the Kavanaugh confirmation and the allegations against him. But it’s important for Christians to realize that the left’s wielding of the #MeToo movement is hypocritically connected to the sexual revolution. If they really care about the Kavanaugh allegations, they would be just as outraged at what happened to my family. But they’re not.

After noticing that my PJ Media editor “liked” my Facebook post, I emailed her and asked if she’d like an article expounding my comment. She responded, “Sure! Was thinking the same thing.”

Well, here’s that article: “Brett Kavanaugh, the St. Louis Naked Bike Ride, and the Left’s Selective Outrage.”

NASCAR, Beto O’Rourke, Donald Trump, and Transgenderism

It’s that time again. Time to “dump” some of my favorite PJ Media articles into a blog post. The topics I write about for PJ Media are quite varied; the list below covers vegan electricity to how a NASCAR drive lost a sponsorship because his father used a racial slur three decades ago to the Texas GOP inadvertently campaigning for the Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke to Trump lying (again) to overrated beers. If you do click over to the articles, be sure to read the comments, many of them are quite amusing.

Although my family and I have been traveling for the last month and a half (with a day or two home, here or there), I still managed to churn out several PJ Media articles. Some that I even like. Below are what I believe are my most note-worthy and interesting articles over the last month and a half. If you’re interested in reading my articles that I didn’t include below, click here for my PJ Media author page.
