The myth of the Christian eunuch

Show me a man who says he doesn’t look lustfully at women ALL THE TIME and I’ll show you a man who’s either lying or gay. [Read more…]

Heeeeeeeeeeeere’s STINKY!!

A couple of years ago a friend of mine showed me a stack of photocopied cartoons featuring a dog named Stinky (, created and drawn by Samantha McCullough. I instantly fell in love with the image of Stinky. I was so enthused that I contacted Sam, and asked her if there was anything I could [Read More…]

Conservative and Liberal Christians: Winning! Losing!

I’d say the Christians I know are pretty evenly split between conservative and liberal.

Lately some have complained that I (via posts like this,this, and this) have been entirely too obnoxious to New Agers. To which I say: Hey, if you can’t take the heat, stay out of the supernova.

The Church of Evolutionary Karmic Auras–and More!

Five Things Women Don’t Know About Men

One of the things in life of which men are most acutely aware is that there are women everywhere. Today, for instance, I’ve already seen five or six different women. And that was just looking out my living room window. And no, I don’t stand in my living room, blatantly ogling people as they walk [Read More…]
