An Open Letter to the Atheist Hacker of Christian Mega-site

Dear Finnish atheist who hacked Hi, there. I’m one of the writers for, the largest Christian website in the world. Is it cold where you live? It looks like it is, since the picture you put of yourself all over Crosswalk shows you wearing a thick skull-cap and a sweatshirt. Of course (as you [Read More…]

#1 Christian Website Hacked By Atheist!

Update: To read my An Open Letter to the Atheist Hacker of Christian Mega-site, click … well, there. Instead of the largest Christian website in the world (2.5 million views a month; 200,000-plus subscribers), people who visited this morning found a single, crudely designed static page featuring cheesy-looking burning crosses and a message from [Read More…]

“Bad Word Bug Wiggles?” What the …?

In the last three days, these are what someone somewhere typed into a search engine (which then brought them here to my blog): Bad word bug wiggles [From some kind of deranged entomologist?] A list of testes to put a boy through to [Yikes! And two–I am so not kidding–people searched this!! Do people not [Read More…]

Whad’ya Get For Christmas?!

Sure, it’s shallow. It’s embarrassingly shallow to ask people what they got for Christmas. It’s just the lamest. And of course it couldn’t be further from the meaning and spirit of Christmas. Of course, it is is true that Jesus received some excellent gifts on the occasion of his physically committing to going from being the supreme, all-powerful ruler of [Read More…]

Faith, Hope, a Chair With Little Claw Divots

If you’re reading this, you’re surprising me. I won’t post this on Crosswalk or I won’t send out a notice to 400 readers telling them it’s here. As far as I know, no one will ever know this is here. So if you’re here, it’s just you and me, baby. Which, let’s face it, [Read More…]

It’s A Stamp Rack!

The thing I posted a picture of (under Anyone Know What This Thing Is?) is, it turns out, a STAMP-RACK. I learned this in two ways. First, a reader who keeps a really outstanding blog called Lord I Believe; Help My Unbelief wrote to say that, after a considerable bit of web research, he found this Most [Read More…]

Anyone Know What This Thing Is?

  Here’s a picture of something that was donated to the thrift stores run by my wife. Does anyone have any idea what it is? It’s got six double rolls, each wound with paper on which is printed three numbers. It’s 9 inches tall and 12 inches long. On the top of it is stamped “Patented Feb [Read More…]

More On Amy-DaughterOfTheKing

Okay, so to be clear (concerning the assertion in comment #12 on my last post that I “promote” divorce): Claiming to be “for” or “against” divorce is like claiming to be for or against weather. It depends on the weather. In principle, I’m extremely against divorce; I basically hate it, and grieve, whenever I even hear about a [Read More…]

Why I Prefer Not to Give Advice to Women with Jerk Husbands

A while ago I wrote a post entitled, “Surprise (Or Not!) Men Are Spoiled!” in which I made the case that it’s natural enough for men to be spoiled and generally feel entitled. At the end of that piece I promised to write a follow-up piece that would address the question of what a woman [Read More…]

How To Crash a Christmas Party

Ah, the Christmas season. What a great time for party-going! The problem is that it’s difficult to get invited to more than about two Christmas parties a year–one of which is always a work Christmas party, which, punch bowl or not, is pretty much exactly like going to work at night. Either way, two parties in 30 days doesn’t [Read More…]
