Happy Religious Freedom Day!

The presidential proclamation would not have been enough. It took Facebook to make me aware of it. [Read more...]

Have a Logical Holiday Season

I was surprised that, having come across this image recently (I added the words), it isn't the only image focused on Spock in a Christmas sweater. Here's one from Anubis-Admirer:   [Read more...]

Holiday Persecution?

I hope the above diagram by Rachel Held Evans helps more people find clarity about this subject!   [Read more...]

War on Christmas

It’s Not Just the Kids

Episcopal Church Memes shared this cartoon on Facebook. It is from Rev. Jay Sidebotham's St. Swithin's cartoon series.

So Inoffensive It’s Offensive?

Hemant Mehta shared the image above of a satirically minimalist and generic holiday display, found (perhaps ironically) on a shoe store which traces its origins to the Book of Genesis. The window display’s attempt to be as generic for the “holidays” as possible reminded me of this cartoon: (subtext) [Read more...]
