Marriage Equality and the Myth of Christian Persecution


Looking back at this past week, I am in awe. Not just because of the historic Supreme Court ruling, but because of the copious amounts of uninformed responses. Yes, I know I shouldn’t be surprised. And, yes, I had some fun with it. I offered some sarcastic, but valid talking points for the victory of marriage equality, [Read More...]

Sunday Sermon: Christian Pastor Decides To Marry Bacon


It’s no surprise that several (but not all) Christian ministers are upset with the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. American family Association’s Bryan Fischer proclaimed: Rainbow jihadists of SCOTUS blow up twin towers of truth and righteousness. From a moral standpoint, 6/26 has become our 9/11. John Piper, Chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, [Read More...]

Bill Burr and the Prophetic Power of Comedy


Not only is laughter the best medicine, it’s a damn good teacher. I have always been enthralled with comedians. As a young kid, my parents forbid me to watch the edgy new show Saturday Night Live.

Mike Huckabee: Ignoring the Supreme Court on Same-Sex Marriage and The Solution to Racism


For a moment, please set aside your theism or atheism. Freedom of religion and the separation of church and state are sacred (pun intended) in the United States. I personally do not care whether my elected officials are religious or nonreligious, but I do expect them to hold their office in a secular fashion. And [Read More...]

Oh, No He Didn’t: Ben Carson’s Supposed Atheist Zinger


A handful of my ultraconservative friends have tried to convince me that Ben Carson is the “right” choice for the White House in 2016. I usually respond that although he seems to be a bright bulb compared to the rest, that’s not really saying much. Look, I know that Carson is quite intelligent. He was a [Read More...]
