Fundie Follies: Cultists Will Curse Your Fetal Ultrasound Via Facebook

Pat Robertson is basically a cartoon character spouting the kind of nutty nonsense many non-Christians think we all believe. I don’t share it because I think he’s an important voice: he’s not. I share it mostly to point and laugh, but also to warn against wadIng into the deep end of the crazy pool. As [Read More...]

Christopher Lee’s Best Movie

Jesus wins.

I was genuinely saddened to learn that Christopher Lee died last Sunday. For some of us, he wasn’t just great talent, but an iconic figure from our childhood. I was a Monster Kid of the 1970s: raised on Saturday matinees, the 4:30 movie, Chiller Theatre on channel 11 (that hand!), and Famous Monsters of Filmland. [Read More...]

The Most Important Book of the Year is Only $5 For a Limited Time

manual-spiritual-warfare-1043105

Paul Thigpen’s Manual for Spiritual Warfare is a must-have. I hate the phrase “instant classic,” partly because it’s an oxymoron, and partly because time is fickle, but I can see this one being read and handed down and treasured a hundred years from now. Thigpen’s book is a clear-headed and faith-filled look at the devil [Read More...]

Taking the Devil Seriously

Republished from June 2014, because posts about Satan always bring the evil little worms out of the woodwork. The reality of the devil was one of the hardest things for me to accept when I returned to the Church. When I made my choice to assent and submit to all the Church teaches, I knew I [Read More...]

He cut their throats in a TraveLodge motel in Barrie, Ontario, in a bloody scene marked by Satanic art and dismembered dolls.

Church of Satan Angry That Satanist Murderers Are Called Satanists

Actual Satanist

  The Church [sic] of Satan [sic] is sad and angry that a couple of Satanic murderers are being called Satanists. They’re not real Satanist like us, they say. They’re “devil worshipers,” which is a different thing! Why? Because! Follow this one if you can. The Church of Satan, founded by a comical fraud named Howard [Read More...]

A Compilation of My Dark and Ghostly Posts

Frankenstein color (220 x 265)

My first writing was in the horror genre, contributing to publications like The Horror Show and Cemetery Dance, and writing entries for the encyclopedia Supernatural Fiction Writers. I even worked for George A. Romero’s Laurel Entertainment film and TV production company for a little while. I think there’s value in exploring dark themes, fear, and even revulsion in [Read More...]
