The I Love Donald Trump Spirituality Test

Another election year political season is upon us and it's unlike any other I've seen. It's over the top. It's reptilian. Actually, that's not very fair to lizards. The heated rhetoric spewing forth from many of the candidates is vitriolic, bass, crass, and ugly. Those debates have been slug fests of rivaling Lords of the Flies - and they've all but incited the masses to riot. But we can't put all of the blame on those candidates, they're simply saying what many of us think. They're taking the … [Read more...]

Mardi Gras, Sodomy, & Us: the sodomites among us – tend to be us.

I see sodomite people.Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday. The day before Ash Wednesday - the beginning of Lent. A time for living with passion, vim and vigor, and for zealously sucking the marrow out of life. It’s also a time when some folks feel a need to wag their fingers. I’m feeling moved to wag a finger of my own – at those who tend to do the finger wagging. The following article is one of my favorites that I’ve ever come across. I found it 8 or 9 years ago in The Wittenb … [Read more...]

Progressive Christianity isn’t Progressive Politics.

 You're a progressive Christian? So you're a liberal Democrat right?Not so fast.Sometimes words that seem similar have little to do with each other. The chances for confusion increase especially in the case of heteronyms (words that sound the same and spelled the same, but have multiple meanings). The bear had to bear the burden of having to hail a cab to escape the hail in order to bail out her friend who was charged with bailing a swamped canoe in the swamp that wasn't … [Read more...]
