10 Things You Can’t Do And Call Yourself A Progressive Christian

The Progressive Edition A certain popular progressive Christian blogger has made a name for himself with a series of posts titled “10 Things You Can’t _________”. These lists make some really good points, but I have a slight problem with them: they’re all directed at conservative, evangelical and/or fundamentalist Christians. That’s a problem for me […]

An Open Letter About My LGBT Kid

Lately, I’ve seen a few straight progressive bloggers write about parenting children who are LGBT. It might be speculation about how the author would react to the news that one of their kids is gay. Or, it could be an open letter telling parents what they should say to their LGBT kid. As the parent of […]

The Bible Is Literally True?

One of my most fertile fields for developing blog posts is in the car. Driving requires just enough concentration to quell the manic mental activity brought on by my ADHD and allows me to spend enough time on one subject to put together a coherent thought. Recently, while tooling around town, I thought about all the truly […]

The Dumbest Thing On The Internet

I’m thinking about starting a new feature called “Dumbest Thing On The Internet”. If that happens, this will most likely be the inaugural piece.  It appears that some folks are a little upset over a recent change in the United States Oath of Allegiance. claiming it was done to comply with Sharia law. According to the latest […]

Donald Trump, God’s Prophet?

I know I’ve said this before, but being a smart-ass blogger who focuses on religion and the stupid things people say can be a very boom and bust proposition. For the last week or so, I’ve been casting about, looking for a suitable target at which to direct my snark and saying it’s been tough […]

Are We Wrong About Matt Walsh?

Is it possible we’ve gotten the wrong idea about Matt Walsh? I know I’ve been pretty hard on him, calling him a douchecanoe, a sick and delusional man and America’s shittiest Christian (and that’s just in the just the last few months). Okay, so the last one is new, but you know what I mean. Of […]

It’s The Gay Guy’s Fault…

Said No Thinking Person Ever I would say that everyone knows about Tuesday’s train derailment, but I found out yesterday that’s not true. Two different people had no idea what the hell I was talking about when I mentioned it. So, I guess a short recap is in order: Amtrak’s Northeast Regional Number 188, carrying 238 passengers and 5 crew […]

News That’s Not Really News

I would like to think people come here looking for commentary that features depth and nuance. If that’s the case, I am so sorry because you’re most likely fucked; depth and nuance aren’t what you’d call my specialties. I wish they were, but you’ve got to work with what the good Lord gave you. Which, in my […]

I’m Going To Hell

I’ve been in the blogging game for a few years now and, if I’ve learned nothing else, it’s that every now and then, the internet gives you a present. Wednesday afternoon, I got just such a gift in the form of a video from Olugbenga Oladejo, a Nigerian preacher (calling this cat a pastor is a […]

5 More Men Women Shouldn’t Marry

Not long ago, Dr. Stephen Kim wrote a blog post that is stirring up the interwebs. Not in the way he hoped, I’m sure; but, stirring it up nonetheless. The post in question is titled 10 Women Christian Men Should Not Marry. Saying that it has the ladies upset is putting it mildly. Google the title […]
