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 […]

What I’ve Learned In 55 Years

In the days surrounding my birthday, I usually write something about questions I might have or make smart-ass comments about aging. This year, I decided to something a little different. In honor of turning 55, I want to share some of my accumulated wisdom with you folks. Don’t worry, it won’t take long. In my 55 years on this Earth, […]

Double Standards Abound

For the past few days, the internet has been abuzz with news about the militia stand-off in Burns, Oregon. From what I can see, it’s mostly progressive people perpetuating this chatter; my conservative friends are generally silent on the matter. The media hasn’t been much help, either. Much of their coverage has followed along the lines of […]

Calling Matt Walsh A Christian Is An Insult To Christians

So, I fully intended to write a scathing satirical piece on how progressives are falling all over themselves to tell a wealthy white woman how courageous she is for coming out as transgender. I was going to make snarky comments about how the possibility of being misgendered on Twitter is exactly like the discrimination and […]

Why, That’s Just Crazy Talk

So, it appears that since the last mid-term elections, President Obama has subscribed to “No F@#ks Monthly” and his extremely low GASF was on full display Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast. In a speech before faith and political leaders, he called out Christians for throwing rocks at Islam because of it’s more violent practitioners: “Humanity has […]

Glass Houses

So far, it’s been one of those days. Not in a bad way, though; my snark-o-meter has been going babies (that’s an Adventure Time reference for all you hopeless squares). It’s always a good day when that happens. As usual, I began my writing process with some procrastinating surfing morning reflection. Just a few minutes in, I […]

They’re On To Us!

  Over the weekend, a Facebook friend shared an article from the Tea Party News Network (a true bastion of journalistic integrity) titled How the Liberal, Progressive Infestation of the Church Threatens America’s Future by Chelsen Vicari. As I read, I thought, “This has got to be satire.” A little research showed me that it’s not. At that […]

You Keep Using That Word

During my morning reading, I encountered yet another instance of conservative Christians claiming to be persecuted. This time, it was in an article about some Christians withdrawing into an internal exile. It’s a very interesting piece and I recommend reading it, but that’s not really what I’m talking about today. That is summed up in […]

Welcome The Stranger?

Watching the news this morning, you’d think Ukraine and Israel are the only places left on Earth. I know things are rough over there, but we’ve still got a humanitarian crisis on our hands here in ‘Murika the United States: the flood of children fleeing poverty and violence illegal immigrants threatening our borders. If you […]
