Culture War: Teach Your Children Well?

Drawing the appropriate line between parental rights and the states interest in the welfare of children can be a complex consideratio n.

Rick Majerus & The Long Arm Of The Archbishop

Rick Majerus has been a college basketball coach for many years and he currently works for St. Louis University, a Catholic University under the auspices of the Jesuits. Majerus has always been a colorful figure but one wouldn’t expect his off the cuff comments to a news reporter at a Hillary Clinton rally to be […]

God’s Charge To Mankind: Punish The Gays?

It doesn’t happen often, but every now and again I find myself exasperated by what I read in a newspaper or on the Internet. Today I came across one such item. Apparently a conservative pastor in Redmond, Washington, the location of Microsoft’s headquarters  , is putting together an effort to get Christians to purchase shares […]

Removing The Thin Veil Of Evangelical Eisegesis

Before I begin, let me be clear…I have great sympathy for the immense pain and loss the family of Matthew Murray must be enduring. I don’t for a moment question their sincerity and I’m certain they love Matthew, and I wish them well. We will likely never fully understand the dynamics that led to this […]

Going To The Matt - Reach Out & Bring Them Back

I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time researching Matthew Murray in hope of understandin g what led him to the place that ended his troubled life and the lives of four innocent individuals who were far too young to exit this existence.

Don’t Be A Dick…Call Me Muhammadonna

The case of British educator, Gillian Gibbons…the teddy bear teacher…has drawn attention to the extremity of Sharia Law…and well it should. While I lack first hand knowledge of the issues surrounding the case, it appears that Gibbons is guilty of little more than being committed to teaching her students.
Apparently, her students were asked to […]

Devil’s In The Details? Not If You Ask Most Americans

Welcome to the latest American renaissance… a loathsome return to the “dark ages”. A new poll tells us that more Americans believe in hell and the devil…litera lly…than believe in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. The only good news…and I say as much with all available facetiousnes s…is that nearly two thirds of all Americans believe […]

God Puts The Squeeze On Richard Roberts

I just love watching “fundies” use god to explain and justify their every action…wheth er it be good or bad. For those who haven’t heard, Richard Roberts, the son of Oral Roberts, now reports that he resigned his position as President of Oral Roberts University because god told him he must (on Thanksgiving Day no […]
