Rubio is a Traitor to the Human Race & a Willful Fool Pandering to Stupid Evangelicals by Denying the Evidence on Climate Change

One Reason Atheism Doesn’t Really Answer Anything

Most people don’t really want to live only according to narrowly defined material facts. Most of us try to direct our human primate evolutionary process along ethical non-material lines. We impose standards that do not come from nature. Nature is cruel yet we try not to be. We prosecute people for war crimes that are no more destructive than what happens every day in the churning cauldron of life where everything is eaten and where death is the only incubator of life. We call murder wrong a … [Read more...]

One of my Patheos.com blogs had gone viral and expanded the profile of who was looking in on my Twitter posts. As I scrolled down looking at the pictures of my Twitter friends I noticed something interesting--  a third or more of the faces were black. In our segmented (if not officially segregated) culture for a white sixty-year-old writer to … [Read more...]

The War on Traditional Notions of Narrative, Order and Beauty Has Failed

The war on traditional notions of narrative, order and beauty has failed. Representational, story-driven movies are embraced by most people, rather than the installation and performance art favored by big galleries and institutions like Tate Modern. The Whitney Biennial (an exhibition of contemporary American art) is often dispiriting to all but a few critics, curators and art students. (Why do curators write longer and longer explanations of the art in their shows in direct proportion to less … [Read more...]

It Never is About Church– It’s Always About Character

Detail from my painting, "Seeing Love Clearly." Where we go to church, or whether we go, isn’t the point. The point is who are we becoming? Does church help you to become the sort of person you’d pick to be stuck on a desert island with? Good! Go! Does it hurt your chances of becoming that person? Run!          Flee from exclusionary certainty. As the bumper sticker says, “Mean People Suck!” And that goes especially for people who are mean in the name of love.          There is on … [Read more...]
