Adult Coloring Books = Tool Of Satan

As you probably  know, adult coloring books are a thing these days. Not for me, though. I hate coloring. In fact, I have always hated coloring. Why? Mostly because my ADHD makes staying inside the lines a real challenge. Now, you might be thinking, “So what? Color outside the lines. Nobody cares.” Unfortunately, I’m also […]

Americans Becoming Less Religious

Recently, a friend posted a link to a Pew Research Center report titled “U.S. Public Becoming Less Religious” and asked “How do we reach people where they are at, without driving them away?” Not long before that, I heard a commercial for a church in Chapel Hill NC advertising an event to pack 20,000 meals for Stop […]

The Real Christian Candidate?

In country whose founding fathers swore wasn’t based on any religion, Christianity plays a humongous role in American political life. To get any traction in a political campaign, it’s pretty much a given that a candidate has to lay out their faith credentials for all to see. And, it’s also pretty much a given that […]

I’m A Christian, But, I’m Not…

Mollie Hemingway recently wrote an article for “The Federalist” titled “5 Most Cringeworthy Problems With Buzzfeed’s Viral ‘I’m a Christian, But I’m Not’, Video” (shown at the top of this page) and she wasn’t exactly what you’d call “complementary”. Now, If I’m being honest, I have to agree that the clip is a little douchey. Not in […]

Being A Southerner

I had originally thought about titling this post “Living In The Southland”, but, I have another piece in the works that already carries that name, so… Besides, one can live in the Southland their entire life and never truly be a “southerner”; it’s as much a state of mind as it a locale. So, I thought […]

Got Guilt?

Feeling guilty? No? Well, you will after watching this scarefest. Basically, it’s says God loves you so much that if you don’t love him back, he will condemn you to eternal, fiery torment. More than that, if you do love God back, but don’t pester the living shit out of everyone around you until they do too, […]

An Open Letter To Women Upset About Hobby Lobby

Ladies, I know you’re upset about the Supreme Court’s ruling in Burwell v Hobby Lobby. Heck, I can understand your anger, at least a little bit. You think we men are trying to control you and your bodies, but we’re not. Okay, we are; but it’s for your own good, I swear. Look, we all know you […]

It’s My Bible, I Can Tear If I Want To

Recently, I read the story of Isaiah Smith, a Texas high school student who was suspended for tearing pages out of a Bible. It seems Mr. Smith brought his Bible into his first period class and tore out the pages from Leviticus that some folks use to condemn their LGBT brothers and sisters. He says […]

Seeking God

Right up front, let me admit I have a chauvinistic attitude about religion and faith. By chauvinistic, I don’t mean the ugly, in-your-face “I’m better than you” type, more a kinder, gentler “my way is better than yours” kind of thing. Which is a nice way of saying I can be an undercover jerk. This chauvinism usually […]

What Am I Talking About Pt V

Okay, this is my last post in this series about Christianity in post-modern society, I promise. Well, I promise it is unless I think of something else. You should know that I’m  a seat-0f-the-pants writer and, truthfully, I don’t know exactly what I’m going to say until I actually say it. So, it’s entirely possible that by […]
