Obama’s Texas Invasion Plans Revealed

Greg Carey made this image and shared it on Twitter, and a lot of people have found it entertaining. And so I thought I would share it on the blog for more people to enjoy. There is actually serious irony to several of the arrows. Climate scientists invading from Alabama? Evolutionists from Kansas? I suppose the anti-gay [Read More...]

Supreme Court Deliberates Same-Sex Marriage

The Supreme Court of the United States heard a case today about marriage equality, on which it will issue a decision in June. The New York Times has been following the discussions and news live, has shared audio recordings of excerpts, and reports that the justices are divided on the issue, also providing background to the case. Amy [Read More...]

Genesis 2 is Not Literal (The Bible Tells Me So)

The quote comes from my recent post “Marriage is Sacred.” The point is one that I have made before, but since someone particularly liked this brief way of making the point, I thought I would turn it into a meme image. Of related interest, Andrew Perriman has a whole series on the idea of “one [Read More...]

Marriage is Sacred

I talked about this topic in my Sunday school class this past Sunday, as we reached the treatment of divorce in 1 Corinthians 7. Different phrases are used in our time – “Biblical marriage,” “traditional marriage,” “the sanctity of marriage.” All of them are used largely synonymously, and hypocritically. Tackling divorce would defend the New Testament’s [Read More...]

No Sin To Be Homosexual

“We are each created in the image of God. It is no badge of honor to be heterosexual and it is no sin to be homosexual, just as it is no honor to be White and no sin to be Black. It is simply who we are.” The quote from Rabbi Paul Menitoff comes from his [Read More...]

He Threw It

This cartoon by Tom Toles is poignant for multiple reasons. It doesn’t just highlight the tendency of some Christians to blame Jesus for their hatred and attacks on others. It also points out the irony of doing so in the name of Jesus, about whom a famous (if not exactly canonical) story is told about him refusing to [Read More...]

The Fragility of American Christians

Paul Flesher shared thoughts on religious freedom and American Christianity that I think need to be read widely. Here is an excerpt: Are Christians so fragile that they are harmed by being employed in weddings they do not theologically agree with? Jesus taught his followers to be tougher than that. Should they be oppressed through [Read More...]

Our Religion Requires It

An interesting take on the legislation in Indiana. It manages to combat selective literalism and conservative picking and choosing on the one hand, while offering an example of authentic lived Christianity on the other, while at the same time challenging the false dichotomy that views gays and Christians as though they were non-overlapping circles. Responding [Read More...]

Complicit in Evil

  The quote comes from a recent post of mine, and when a commenter said they wanted to share it, I thought it might make sense to make a meme image for that purpose. [Read more...]

Does IU Have the Legal Right to Prohibit Discimination?

I was proud when I read the statement by Butler University’s president Jim Danko about the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act.” When I then saw that the president of IU Michael McRobbie had alsod issued a statement, I found myself wondering about it in relation to the law. The statement says, “we will not tolerate discrimination [Read More...]
