Don’t Do It, Charlotte? Too Late, They Done Did It

So, the Charlotte city council recently voted to allow transgenders to use whatever bathroom they damn well please. Well, beloved, if you need a sign of the moral degeneration currently taking place in the United States, here it is. I mean, we’re seriously going to let men use women’s bathrooms just because they claim to “feel […]

Linda Harvey Can’t Find Anywhere To Shop

You may not know this, but being a homophobic asshole is not without its pitfalls. Don’t think so? Just ask anti-LGBT activist Linda Harvey. PinkNews reports that Ms. Harvey is having a hard time finding places to shop because almost no major businesses oppose LGBTQ equality anymore. Or, in Linda’s words: “For any Christian who wants […]

Franklin Graham Does It Again.

In the past, I’ve referred to Franklin Graham and his colleagues as the gift that keeps on giving. But, honestly, this is one gift I could do without. So, what has uber-knob political activist Reverend Franklin Graham done to warrant my attention this time? Well, he’s on his soapbox about Charlotte’s proposed non-discrimination ordinance.  Again […]

Remembering History: The Greensboro Sit-ins

I wrote the first version of this post three years ago. Since this is the anniversary of the Greensboro Sit-ins, I thought this would a good time to dust it off and give you an updated version. Enjoy. 57 years ago today, four college students walked in and sat down at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N. […]

Sarah Silverman: Jesus Was Gender-fluid

Sarah Silverman is no stranger to controversy. Over the course of her career, the comedian has caught flack for using a racial slur, tweeting snarky rape prevention tips and more. This past Christmas Day, she did it again with this tweet: Like clockwork, conservatives took the internet to voice their displeasure by calling her a […]

Oh Boy, Columbus Day!

It appears the name of the holiday we’re presently celebrating has been changed to “Be A Condescending Dick Day” and no one bothered to let me know. Sorry if that comes off a little rough, but I am so over all the Columbus Day bullshit some of my progressive friends have throwing up on social […]

Taste The Rainbow, Mike

In the Republican race for the 2016 presidential nomination (aka 2nd place in the general election), all the candidates have touted their Christian bona fides. Hell, even the Donald has claimed the mantle of “Christian” and said the Bible is his favorite book ever (he couldn’t point to a verse he liked, however). But, in […]

Christian Persecution?

Ever since the issue of marriage equality popped up on the national radar, conservative Christians have been worried about being “persecuted for their beliefs” (and by “persecuted for their beliefs”, I mean “not allowed to shit on gay people anymore”). We’ve heard about bakers getting in trouble for refusing to make cakes for “gay” weddings, fears […]

The Cost Of Empire

The concept of humanity’s brokenness is a topic of conversation that comes up within Christianity from time to time. And, while the brokenness of people may be open to argument, the brokenness of this world isn’t.  Perhaps the most glaring piece of evidence of that brokenness is violence. We spend a lot of time on what […]

The Man We Thought We Knew

The long-awaited sequel/prequel/draft/who-the-hell-knows-what-it-is to Harper Lee’s classic “To Kill A Mockingbird” hit the shelves yesterday. Titled “Go Set A Watchman“, the novel has some folks stirred up. Why? Because, in this story, Atticus Finch (aka the greatest literary character ever) turns out to be a racist and a segregationist. That’s a bit awkward, isn’t it? […]
