Dad refutes "It's just traditional values"

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. [Read more...]

Mom on prayer

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 [Read More...]

Dad gets in on the act

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? Can’t you just let us continue in our “ignorance” without posting about its stupidity so much? I am friends with you on facebook because [Read More...]

Mom breaking off a piece

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 [Read More...]

Don't ask, don't tell and integrity

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 [Read More...]

Dad is getting my emails part V

Dad is getting my emails part IV

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 [Read More...]

Dad is getting my emails part III

Despite saying he would agree to disagree, Robert returned to emailing my dad. I am looking at the world spiritually and you are looking at it physically, which is obviously not cohesive, John. They are nowhere near the same, and cannot be compared, therefore, I reinterate my previous request of agreeing to disagree. I must [Read More...]

Dad is getting my emails part II

After my dad’s last email, Robert wrote back. Well John, I have no argument against you because you discredit my sources. As for physical proof and laws you speak of, I question the accuracy of those laws. Come on man, the very basic fundamental understanding of our make up is a THEORY!! ie the atomic [Read More...]

Dad is getting my emails

My dad got an email from a guy back home we both know (but whom I haven’t spoken to since high school). JT. I went to school with you, whether you remember me or not. I have also known your Dad for quite a long time. I just thought I would put my two cents [Read More...]
