Christians and Halloween

“Halloween is a Satanic holiday” is the most ridiculous, absolute lamest excuse that stingy people have ever come up with as an excuse to not give candy to those who ask for it. Christians, of course, will not use this excuse, since they know that Jesus himself said “Give to everyone who asks of you” (Luke [Read More...]

Happy May Day!

May 1st is International Workers’ Day. It seems like the United States may be closer to being ready to actually celebrate this holiday, which has in the past been rejected as something for socialists and Communists. People are talking about compensation, wealth, equality, and injustice more widely in the US today than at any time I can [Read More...]

Happy St. George’s Day!

I am sorry that I did not get around to wishing readers a happy St. George's Day until now. Perhaps it ought to be a young-earth creationist holiday. Ken Ham claims that the legends about St. George and the dragon are proof that humans and dinosaurs (including some that breathed fire, if the billboards for [Read More...]

I’m Dreaming of a White Easter

Today in my class on the Bible, we talked about the crucifixion. In my class on the Gospel of John, we are entering the passion narrative. And this is what the Butler University campus looks like today: It certainly creates a holiday mood…but not for the holiday I was expecting people to have their minds [Read More...]
