No Homosexual Lifestyle???

In August of last year, the darling of the progressive Christian world, John Pavlovitz, wrote a post titled Repeat After Me: “There is No Such Thing as a “Homosexual Lifestyle.”  What?!? No homosexual lifestyle? I find that hard to believe. I mean, if there’s no “homosexual lifestyle”, that means I’ve been an asshole for absolutely no […]

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 […]

Christians for Trump 2016!

  I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been so underwhelmed by the choices in the upcoming presidential election. Until recently, I floundered around, looking for the true, evangelical Christian candidate, all to no avail. Ben Carson was looking good for a while, but then I realized he’s a Seventh-Day Adventist, and I just […]

It’s (Not) The End Of The World

I have to admit I was a little bummed last week, when I missed the opportunity to write about yet another End Times “prediction”; aka, the blood moon. Well, as bummed as one can be while on vacation in the (sub)tropical paradise that is Florida’s Tampa Bay area. Early in the week, when this story […]

First Church of Tax Exemption

After his tour de force as interim host on The Daily Show in 2013, John Oliver moved over to HBO to host his own program, “Last Week Tonight“. There, he takes a more in-depth look at various subjects like Sex Ed, prison sentences, transgender rights, the tobacco industry and nutritional supplements. If you haven’t watched any of those, I […]

No One Needs That Crap

Every so often, we’re treated to yet another person playing pretend conducting a social experiment in an attempt to shore up their weak position understand something outside their experience. Most recently, it was libertarian douchebag FoxNews hack reporter John Stossel, who dressed up and spent (from what I can tell) a whole hour pretending to be homeless. Based on this experience, […]

Spiritual Bullying

Spiritual bullying…, not two words you expect to see together, but it happens. Probably the most visible aspect of spiritual bullying is that old chestnut, “Love sinner, hate the sin”, which is almost always applied to LGBT folks. Interesting note, that particular phrase doesn’t come from the Bible. The exact quote comes from Mohandas K. Gandhi’s autobiography. […]

Never Gonna Give You Up

“Never gonna give you up, Never gonna let you down, Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry, Never gonna say goodbye, Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you”. Yes, those are the words to one the 80’s most pervasively annoying songs, Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley (admit it, […]

Really, John?

Yesterday, we heard John Piper believes that Christianity should have a “masculine feel”. According to the good doctor (yes, he has a PhD.), “God revealed Himself in the Bible pervasively as king not queen; father not mother”. He goes to point out many other examples of masculine language in the Bible as proof of this idea. And, he’s […]
