Voting Third Party? Take A Look At Andrew Basiago

This is not turning out to be one of history’s more inspirational election cycles. Unable to bring themselves to vote for Trump or Hillary, many people are considering a vote for a third-party candidate.  Unfortunately, Jill Stein and Gary Johnson aren’t proving all that inspiring, either. But, there is a light shining in the darkness and his name is Andrew Basiago. […]

Christians For Trump Pt…, Oh, Who Cares

Since the beginning of the year, I have written several pieces about the tangerine-hued hairball the Republican Party has hacked up on our political rug, aka Donald Trump. Most of them have focused on my bewilderment at evangelical Christians support of Trump and the fact that, no matter what he says or does, the man’s […]

Christians For Trump Pt III

In the past month or so, I have written a couple of posts about Donald Trump’s appeal to evangelical Christians. And, guess what? I’m doing it again! I keep returning to this topic because I find it fascinating. Besides, I wouldn’t be a very good curmudgeon if I didn’t salivate at the idea of Christians following a […]

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 […]

The Dumbest Thing On The Internet

I’m thinking about starting a new feature called “Dumbest Thing On The Internet”. If that happens, this will most likely be the inaugural piece.  It appears that some folks are a little upset over a recent change in the United States Oath of Allegiance. claiming it was done to comply with Sharia law. According to the latest […]

Pray the Gay Away?

Last week, the President responded to a petition on the White House’s “We the People” site calling for a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors and enact Leelah’s Law, lending his support. As the father of a transgender teen, I couldn’t be happier. But, there are others who don’t share that happiness; mostly conservatives. […]

A Post-Post-Racial Society?

I have a confession to make: I didn’t vote for Barrack Obama in 2008. While I’m not sure if that means I was a racist back then, the fact that I did vote for him in 2012 has to show that I have overcome whatever racist tendencies from my youth might have hung on into […]

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 […]

The Cult Of The Manly Man

Last month, The New Yorker ran a piece by Adam Gopnik titled No More Mr. Tough Guy. It addressed the public perception (and by “public”, I mean conservative bloggers and pundits) that President Obama is a wimp, a weak sister, an effeminate girly-man. Of course, supporters (and liberal/progressive critics) of the President will say it isn’t so, […]

“Wrong” Kind of Christian

Recently, CNN’s Belief Blog ran article about President Obama’s faith that was originally titled “Is Obama the ‘Wrong Kind’ of Christian”, but it seems they were pressured into changing it to “The Gospel According to Obama“. I’m not a big fan of censorship and that’s what this was. Usually, it’s the Religious Right that gets […]
