Mules, Sex and Rick Santorum

Mule SNout

As a blogger, I could not ask for a more interesting presidential candidate than Rick Santorum. Not only does he exhibit latent ambitions to preach from the pulpit; he also LOVES to talk about sex. While most candidates will talk around matters of sex and sexuality, Rick goes right for it. He takes on sexuality [Read More...]

Sh*t Emergent Christians Say

My friend, Travis Mamone, did a short video about all the stuff emergent Christians are prone to pop off about. Yeah, he pretty much nails me in it. Check out Travis’ blog at the link above on his name, and, dig the Something Beautiful Podcast where he’s a co-host. [Read more...]

Dust In the Wind: A Lenten Tribute (Fashion FAIL)

A ruffled-tuxedo, big-fro, cho-mo, super-bangs reminder of what Ash Wednesday is all about. I actually did this song with Michael Collins, an old friend of mine, at a high school talent show, but there’s NO WAY we were this awesome. And by awesome, I mean reminiscent of a troupe of mutant circus freaks. [Read more...]

My Boy’s Legacy of Obsessive Behavior

I write about Mattias a lot. There’s plenty of material there. It’s become particularly interesting since we’ve discovered in the past year that he has Asperger Syndrome. We’ve also realized, though non-medically, that I most likely have many or all of the same traits. And really, if you look back through the guys in my [Read More...]

Stolen Valor and Government’s Moral Authority

I’m always fascinated by issues of free speech and what should be within the reach of government authority, especially as a writer, but also as one who leans toward civil libertarianism. So when the recent matter emerged involving people claiming not only to have served in the military, but to have received decoration for their [Read More...]

My Most Recent Video Project (Water 2012)

This really has nothing directly to do with theology or family, though its message of resource awareness and conservation certainly aligns with my feelings on environmental stewardship. Anyway, this is a project I worked on recently for an organization in Colorado called Water 2012. Their goal is to engage average citizens in the important movement [Read More...]

Did Jesus Have to Die to Save Us from Sin?

One of the cornerstones in the belief of many Christians is that “Jesus died for our sins.” However, I often struggled with this idea on many levels. Why would a God of peace, love and mercy require blood atonement? Didn’t Jesus forgive sin before his death? And doesn’t this, in some ways, put the power [Read More...]

Church Sign Epic Fails

god will get you

There are plenty of websites that generate fake church signs, but thankfully there are still more than enough real examples of church messages that can evoke emotions across the spectrum. I’ve collected a few of my favorites here and thought I’d share. I’ve passed on all of the cliche ones like “God answers knee-mail’ and [Read More...]

Who Would Jesus Glitter Bomb?

For starters, I’ll apologize for not including my usual images and links. I poured an entire glass of red wine on my laptop last night, and so I am blogging from my iPad. Yes, I know, a true yuppie problem. So you’ll get text-only today AND LIKE IT!!! Now that I got that out of [Read More...]
