Thank You

I blogged for about eight years before joining FtB.  First I was on xanga (all the cool kids were doing it), then for about six months this year I was on my own site.  Up until FtB I never gave a thought to how many readers I had – I just wrote because it was [Read More...]

I know Christmas is over, but…

I thought I might like to have the last word about Christmas. Richard Land – one of my favorite radio personalities on the local Christian radio station I listen to, wrote a piece for the Washington Post titled, “Why it’s hard to be a Christian at Christmas“. You’ve got a whole month in which no [Read More...]

What Was JT Doing When…

RIP Hitch

Most of us have heard by now that Christopher Hitchens has died.  If there is a heaven, he’s up there kicking god’s ass, so at least that hasn’t changed.  If there is a hell, he is undoubtedly giving Lucifer lessons on how to sin with class. But neither of those places exist, and Hitch died [Read More...]
