Discussion: how do you make it as a writer?

I’m often asked how one can begin to pursue paying gigs as a writer.  I always respond that I’m a horrible person to ask.  I blogged for fun (and for free) for about a decade and just kind of fell into it.  I really don’t advertise myself and just write to have fun and get [Read More...]

BREAKING: Arizona’s gay marriage ban struck down!

Look out Arizona!  Sometime in the future, not at any specific time, and not in any specific way (but you can trust it’ll be something that happens naturally and that happened before this decision, like a tornado or disease), god is going to get you!  Some rogue judge (who is ruling in accordance with 30+ decisions [Read More...]

Rebecca Hamilton didn’t read my response, but thinks it’s petty, small, second-rate tripe.

Rebecca Hamilton has a comment policy on her blog that seems about as random as what the GOP is scared shitless about this week (is it gays? Ebola? The minority vote? Roll the dice and let’s find out!).  She moderates contrary comments heavily, often blocking perfectly polite comments that point out how she has been [Read More...]

Christian Movie Reviews

I was laying in bed the other night with my Android trying to figure out the title of a movie by searching for “that movie where the shadows kill everyone”. I didn’t end up locating it, but I did stumble across something else. It’s almost like Google knows me. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised [Read More...]

Psychology Today: Secular societies fare better than religious societies.

We have to defeat secularism or else society will crumble!  Without god all kinds of terrible things will happen!  If we don’t make gays second class citizens and replace arithmetic with the 10 commandments everybody’s going to be miserable!  How can we have a cohesive society if we let women run marrying other women all [Read More...]

Rebecca Hamilton is nowhere near accurate in her description of “atheist bullying.”

Rebecca Hamilton over at the Catholic channel of Patheos is outraged.  Did you know that atheists are bullying Christians?  Apparently we are (how the minority bullies the majority, I’ll never know).  I read her piece and, as it turns out, the problem isn’t so much atheists bullying anybody as it is Rebecca Hamilton not being [Read More...]

Appointment #9 coming up.

I’m about to head out the door to my 9th appointment. I ate well this last weekend.  I ate REALLY well – as in I ate too much.  But it didn’t bother me much.  I don’t want to step onto the scale today though to check the damage, I just want to go back to [Read More...]

Who needs access to contraception and equal pay? You’re getting married!

The GOP is sick of losing the votes of women, so they’re finally targeting women on things they care about.  No, not equal pay and healthcare, but marriage.  Stephen Colbert has the lowdown.

Alaska Attorney General has gay rights advocates right where he wants them.

I was so happy over my honeymoon to see that Alaska’s gay marriage ban had fallen.  What better time than celebrating my own marriage to hear the news that others get to share in this type of happiness (which, in no way, undercuts my marriage)? On Sunday, a federal judge overturned the 16-year ban, saying [Read More...]

Most vouchers in the D.C. voucher program funnel government money to religious schools.

I know this is going to come as a shock to you, but in the Washington D.C. voucher program most of the vouchers are going to religious schools. The U.S. Department of Education released a report last week (pdf) evaluating the current state of the D.C. school voucher program (called “Opportunity Scholarships”). Their findings indicate what many [Read More...]

North Carolina pastor loses it over gay marriage.

So good to be reading the news again.  It’s like shadenfreude forces my brain to release endorphins, which is why I love articles like this: A Baptist pastor is warning that God will escalate the Ebola crisis when North Carolina begins performing same-sex marriages. Would you believe that much of West Africa is largely Christian? [Read More...]

SCOTUS blocks 5th Circuit decision that would’ve closed most abortion clinics in Texas.

The bill that Wendy Davis famously filibustered has been a topsy turvey roller-coaster ride – even to someone who spent the last four days riding roller-coasters.  First it was passed, then blocked in court, then that decision was overridden by the 5th Circuit. Well, despite three dissents, the Supreme Court blocked the bill again, and [Read More...]
