Open letter to all students contemplating going to an evangelical college “Don’t let them ruin your life”

photo from https://www.facebook.com/OneGordonLGBTQ/Before you choose a college such as Wheaton, Gordon or Liberty University consider this: your degree will cost you dearly in terms of future opportunities. It'll be next to worthless, about as useful to you as a degree from the grand wizard of the KKK. The evangelical fundamentalist college movement is painting itself into a backward hate-filled corner. Don't let them ruin your life. On the brink of the massive defeat that the 2016 p … [Read more...]

Our Grandfather/Granddaughter Lucy & “Ba” Art/Icon Art Project

I've just launched a new show of icon art I collaborated with my 7 year old granddaughter Lucy on. She draws the pictures and I paint them in. A motif in modern art has been to capture the primitive forms and childlike wonder present in children's art. I've gone one better and actually am working with a child in an equal partnership. And this isn't just any child, this is the little girl for whom Genie and I provide daily care. She is my heart. These paintings are about the love that drives me … [Read more...]

What Is BAD (and Good) Sex & Art?

Bad art and bad sex matter for the same reason that bad religion matters. A brain can get used to anything. Once we’re used to something, it starts to seem okay. That capacity to normalize failures is why there are people who think that child abuse is “just discipline,” a Big Mac is “good food,” a rotting shark is “good art,” and hooking up with a predatory stranger is “good sex.”The same pattern of brain damage happens to the millions of people like me who were hurt as children by certain fo … [Read more...]
