It’s All Hallows Eve…, Eve

I’m a little disappointed in you, evangelicals. In years past, I could always count on you for prime blog fodder during this season. Your War on Halloween used to be a wonderous (and, let’s face it, hilarious) combination of ignorance and fear that pushed you to outlandish extremes which were then used for evangelism; i.e. […]

Pat Robertson: Wordsmith

After a month or so of going at Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham pretty hard, I decided to take a break from writing about their shenanigans. That hiatus was still in force this morning when I was going through my emails and found a Google alert about the host of The 700 Club that linked […]
