Watching Deadpool is a One-way Ticket to Hell

That’s the word on the evangelical street, y’all. You will not pass Go and you will not collect $200. You will, however, spend eternity in the bottomless pit and being tormented at Satan’s pleasure.  Now, you may be wondering why is watching “Deadpool” a one-way ticket to Hell? Because, people are nekkid in it, that’s […]

God Still Hates Yoga Pants?

The world keeps on turning and, somehow, we’ve come back to the yoga pants conversation again. Before we go any further, let me state for the record, that I believe yoga pants are awesome. Think about it, we’re talking about something that makes women look good, but is also comfortable for them? Considering all the […]

Where Are The Men?

In case you’re wondering, yes, that is a take-off on the title of a Tony Jones post. And, yes, it’s one that bit him in the ass (something that seems to happen to poor old TJ quite a bit). But, taking  a page out of his book, I’ve noticed something over the past few days. Almost […]

God Cares About Football?

So, the American version of Roman poet Juvenal’s bread and circuses, aka the Superbowl, is upon us. Yes, friends, it’s time to engage in the annual bacchanalia of eating too much shitty food, enjoying a massively overhyped half-time show and watching a bunch of obscenely expensive commercials for a series of products that really won’t contribute to […]

Man Up!

First of all, let me say that, although this is primarily addressed to men, it isn’t “just for men”. I only used that picture because I liked the image and couldn’t find one that didn’t have the “prayer meeting” line. That said, I’m not a big fan of the phrase “Man up” because it implies that the […]

Smokescreens

This week has been a good one for The Progressive Redneck. The last two posts have generated some interesting conversation and Wednesday’s piece about modesty is my most popular post yet (if you haven’t read it, go here and see what all the shouting’s about). At the risk of beating a dead horse, I’m going […]

God Hates Yoga Pants?

Recently, David Hayward (aka nakedpastor) published a cartoon about God and yoga pants. Now, you may not be aware of this (I know I wasn’t), but yoga pants are a big issue in evangelical circles. Why is that? Because yoga pants are “revealing” and “very attractive to men”. This is a problem because, apparently, men […]

I Still Have Questions

It is becoming a tradition for me to write a witty blog post about aging on my birthday. Last year, I imparted some of the wisdom I’ve accrued in my life. The year before…, well, the year before I didn’t do a witty blog post. Okay, so it’s not really a tradition yet, but I’m […]

It’s a Control Thing

Well, Miley’s at it again. In a move sure to stir up more controversy, the latest video from the former Disney teen princess features nudity and some rather suggestive scenes. And, by suggestive, I mean licking various things, riding a huge wrecking ball nekkid (the name of the song is “Wrecking Ball, you know) and […]

FYI (if you’re a teenage boy…, or a young man)

Fellows, There’s an open letter on the internet about the pictures young ladies are posting on social media. It seems that some parents are upset that there are pictures of girls in various stages of undress because they’re afraid you’ll see them and be tempted into sexual sin. As a father of two daughters, I have […]
