The-God-Of-The-Bible’s Women-Management Plan is focused on Bodily fluids. To put it mildly HE has an Uneasy Relationship with Women! So Does Wheaton College

A Wheaton  professor asking for the pill? To put it mildly the so-called God-Of-The-Bible has an uneasy relationship with women. The other day I was trying to figure out why Wheaton College (an evangelical school) wanted to claim a "religious liberty" right to deprive women of insurance coverage for contraception. The school even went to the Supreme Court to claim that right. How to explain this? I'd just published my new book --WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give … [Read more...]

I haven’t the foggiest idea what prayer does– I do know that I can’t get through my day without praying…

Why does prayer feel both right and normal to me and crazy, too? The best I can do is offer this analogy. In the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, people receive a vision of a mountain to which they’re being called. They don’t know what they’re seeing, let alone why.

And while I know that soon my grandchildren will be asking me tough questions about whether any of this … [Read more...]

“Aside from the drowning of the newborn baby..” Do We Care?

Where is God? Where is civilization when a woman is forced to drown her newborn baby? Where are we? Read please, read, weep and pray we put people first. Take a break from our games between our right and left and fight for justice. Thank you to the UK Guardian © newspaper for this. Thank you to the United Nations for speaking out  too. Isn't this something that the right and left here in America can unite in condemning? North Korea human rights abuses resemble those of the Nazis, says UN … [Read more...]

One Look at American Christians and I Figure Jesus Must Have Hated Women– Right?

My friend’s attitude pissed me off. I shouted, “Are you kidding me? Taking care of my grandchildren is the only thing I’ve ever done I feel entirely happy about! Anyway, Jesus liked hanging out with women and kids too! So fuck you!" Let me explain... I’d just picked up Lucy and Jack at kindergarten and preschool when a friend called. Jack goes to preschool three days a week and Lucy goes to kindergarten five days a week. My grandchildren attend in the morning and my wife Genie and I … [Read more...]

Nadia Bolz-Weber and the Liturgy

I met Nadia one morning over early coffee. I saw the tattoos and wondered who this was. Later that day I heard Nadia speak about liturgy. How did that voice, the voice of patristic ancient liturgical tradition come out of this tall tattooed lady? Patristics-- the study of the Early Christian writers that are designated Church Fathers -- love of liturgy and tattoos??? So WHO is Nadia, where did this person come from? What on earth..? Now comes the glowing, gleeful answer: … [Read more...]
