My hometown newspaper just ran this editorial. If, in 2008, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had possessed the sort of influence evident by the overwhelming national response to his “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” initiative Aug. 1, he might have become president. Reacting to the gay marriage controversy stemming from remarks by Dan Cathy, president of the [...]
Another facebook friend tagged me in a comment asking for my assessment of the slippery slope argument. On this occasion it was, “If you let gays marry, why not polygamists?” Dad got to it before I could and hammered it harder.
The same person who said, “It matters” re-posted something my dad had on his facebook. Then, because it’s Mountain Home, Arkansas, the believers came.
A friend of mine posted an article on Chick-Fil-A’s bigotry toward gays the other day. A few people came on to defend CFA, including this person. Dad was having none of it.
Since I seem to have handed mom the keys to my blog lately (and since everybody reading doesn’t seem to mind), here’s something she sent Sandy on prayer. Pray for me if you must, but rather than pray for my sorry heathen soul, why not pray for god to help the thousands of starving children [...]
Dad got a message on facebook too. John, I have to wonder- why do you dedicate so much of your time to disproving Christianity? Does our belief offend you so much?

Mom got a message from one of her old classmates on facebook. Carol, I just want you to know that I pray for you and John every day. I fail to understand why you are so afraid of christianity. Obviously you do not understand it. Let me just say this. You have never read a [...]
My dad’s facebook status last night. How come we don’t hear anything any more about doing away with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? Wasn’t that supposed to signal the end of democracy? Weren’t our soldiers supposed to quit in droves to the point where we could no longer defend our country? Wasn’t the end of DADT [...]
Here’s the end. Here are parts one, two, three, and four if you need/want to catch up. Robert wrote back to dad… “And I am tired of being preached at. If I wanted that, I would go to a church. You wanted an opportunity to give me evidence. You failed to do so, but gave [...]
Robert continues with my dad (after parts one, two, and three). I have a book that spells out the fundimentals of life for all of mankind, and gives hope to all. It boldly proclaims the truth about creation, how we have lived, and how we are to live as saved believers, and also gives details [...]
