America’s Newest Export: Jesus

No, it’s not true that America has to import everything and that we have nothing to contribute to the rest of the world. We do too.
Even as we speak, boatloads of Bible-totin fire-and-bri mstone-spewi ng Christians are being shipped out to ports all up and down Europe and Britain. They’re cheaper by the gross.
Ah […]

The Constitutional Right To Not Be Sued Too Harshly

I’ve never seen it in the Constitution either, but U.S. District Judge Richard Bennett seems to know all about it. For once, conservative s are right when they talk about “unelected judges legislating from the bench.”
Last October a jury ruled that the Westboro Baptist Church — that’s Fred Phelps and all of the other “church” […]

Surprising survey shows Democrats breaking through to born again Christians

A surprising survey out today shows that if the general election were held today, Democrats would stand a better chance than Republicans to pick up the majority of born again Christian voters. (Let’s take a moment to reflect on this moment of irony, talking about the general election before “Suppah Tuesday” even wraps up.)
Now […]

Florida Catholic Conference donates large chunks of money for anti-gay ballot measure

It hasn’t received much attention, but a last minute petition campaign for a “Marriage Protection Amendment” managed to secure a spot on Florida’s November ballot, sneaking in by the skin of its teeth on Friday. Given that Florida has already enacted a state-wide “Defense of Marriage Act,” one has to wonder why another push […]

Does This “Science” Serve Any Purpose?

I’m not religious (as you’d probably guess from some of my other posts) but I still found this article sort of irritating.
The gist seems to be that people who believe in God — or anything supernatural — or who anthropomorp hize their pets, well, they’re basically just a bunch of introverted geeks who don’t have […]

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 […]

Young Christian voters show disconnect with religious right

RELEVANT magazine just released a poll of Christian voters between the ages of 18-34, and the results…well  , they may surprise you.
Now, I think it’s best to take polls with a huge grain of salt. Or perhaps a hallucinogen ic substance. But if the results of the RELEVANT magazine survey are to be […]

Jewish leaders condemn email rumors about Obama’s faith

If you’ve got a Republican family member, or several like I do, chances are you’ve seen one of those anti-Barack Obama emails, suggesting that he’s a terrorist in sheep’s clothing, and that he’s posing as a Christian to be elected President but then will come out as a Muslim and handover the United States to […]

Ideology vs. Experience

I recently listened to an outstanding interview of Jean Vanier by Krista Tippett on the radio program “Speaking of Faith.” Jean Vanier has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, and has been considered a “Living Saint” by many people in the Roman Catholic Church. Jean Vanier is mostly known for the founding of the […]

Domino’s Pizza endorses Mitt Romney

Get the door. It’s Domino’s. Or, make that Tom Monaghan, the founder of Domino’s, who has just thrown his endorsement to former Massachusett s Gov. Mitt Romney in the race for the 2008 Presidential election. Why Mitt Romney? In the words of Mr. Monaghan:
“As someone who values the importance of […]
