Are We Wrong About Matt Walsh?

Is it possible we’ve gotten the wrong idea about Matt Walsh? I know I’ve been pretty hard on him, calling him a douchecanoe, a sick and delusional man and America’s shittiest Christian (and that’s just in the just the last few months). Okay, so the last one is new, but you know what I mean. Of […]

Josh Duggar Gets His

And, I Couldn’t Be Happier Like most of you, my social media feed has been filled with stories, articles, op-eds, etc. about the Josh Duggar scandal. Interestingly, almost every one has been posted by my progressive friends; the conservatives I know have been remarkably silent on the matter. Well, maybe not “remarkably”; most likely, they […]

Iceman Is Gay And Franklin Graham Isn’t Happy

That’s right, boys and girls; classic X-Men member Iceman (aka Bobby Drake) has come out as gay and Franklin Graham is pissed. He took to Facebook to let us about this latest outrage from “the gays,” posting:           Really? With all that’s going on in the world,  who has time to […]

Celebrating Jesus?

This past Saturday, the Western Carroll County Ministerial Association in Eureka Springs, Arkansas put on its 3rd annual “Celebrate Jesus” parade. Lest you think I do nothing but sit around surfing the internet for interesting stuff to write about (I do, but I don’t want you think that), this one actually fell into my lap. […]

Of Chia Pets And Used Underwear

Today, I want to share an article I found this morning in The Old North State Beacon (“All the fake news that’s fit to print since I made the site up this morning”): Woman Stunned To Find Poor And Homeless Don’t Want Her Leftovers          A Greensboro woman was bewildered when a local ministry for […]

The Obligatory “What I’m Thankful For” Post 2014 Edition

  Well, it’s Thanksgiving and you know what that means: it’s time for one of the few lasting traditions here at The Progressive Redneck: “The Obligatory “What I’m Thankful For” Post, a collection of the more trivial things that I happen to be thankful for each year. Normally, I write this the day before Thanksgiving but, […]

This Country Is Going Straight To Hell

Once again, I’m handing over the reins of the Progressive Redneck to my boyhood friend, Jefferson Davis Dudley. Jeff is very concerned over the course our nation is taking and wants to ask for your help. So, without further ado, here’s Jeff((As always, any post from my “friend” should be read as satire)). Once again, […]

God Bless Grace Ann

  Today, boys and girls, you’re in for a treat: I’m turning The Progressive Redneck over to a guest blogger, my boyhood friend and idol, Jefferson Davis Dudley, a great American. Jeff was born and raised in Volunteer, NC and is a graduate of Little Bethel Free Will Baptist Bible College in Pilot Mountain, NC (not far from the […]

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 […]

Religious Business

It is a sad day in America when religious leaders feel the need to write the President a letter asking for an exemption to the  proposed executive order banning discrimination against LGBT people working for federal government contractors. How, oh how, have we come to such a place in this Christian nation the land of the free? It […]
