Kept Apart by Theology

I'm certain that not all real-life situations mirror David Hayward's cartoon that I've shared above. Sometimes people eagerly put their theologies out in front of them to keep others away. But it is particularly tragic when people have the natural, positive sense that they ought to connect with other people, but are persuaded that their [Read More...]

In the Biblical Sense

As someone who teaches Bible, this cartoon Hemant Mehta recently shared made me laugh: It is funny that, through a series of twists and turns in the history of language, a reference to something being “Biblical” can turn it into sexual innuendo.

Graphing a Problem

David Hayward’s cartoon could be about the Book of Job or the recent act by terrorists in Boston. Indeed, we could plot both on the graph. Does correlation indicate causation in this case? Certainly, if more intense suffering is a problem for a monotheistic worldview and so brings out more inane theological utterances, those utterances [Read More...]

Put God Back in Marathons

Bob Cargill shared the above image of a Facebook status. And David Hayward did a good job with today’s cartoon, getting at the seeming correspondence between tragedy and increased theological nonsense and inanity (I prefer not to use his term, but some of the things people spout at times like these are so offensive that I [Read More...]
