Guest post: asexual awareness.

I came to know crystal back in my college days of blogging on Xanga, which must be closing in on ten years ago.  Jesus, time flies.  Anyway, she was an academic who, even then, I invited to guest blog on my site because her knowledge base was so vast.  Speaking in Minnesota three years ago [Read More…]

Your morning happiness #2: Michaelyn and I performing at KC Oasis.

Yesterday I was both the musical and speaking guest at KC Oasis.  I performed three songs, the first of which was a cover of the Four Chord Song by Axis of Awesome.  One of the KC Oasis people recorded it, so if you want to hear us muddle through it, here it is. [Read more…]

I’m back in the saddle after five days of traveling and speaking.  Today shall be the day of the guest post as I have three in my inbox ready to go. But before any of that, here’s a not-so-sneaky hamster securing a carrot: [Read more…]

So long, Mars Hill, and thanks for all the fish.

In the wake of Mark Driscoll’s resigning in shame, Mars Hill is about to dissolve its empire and let each of its churches go their separate ways: Marking its own Reformation Day of sorts, Mars Hill Church will dissolve Mark Driscoll’s multisite network and let each of its remaining 13 churches go their own way.

It’s like law-breaking churches want to lose the tax-exempt status.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State recently sent out 84,000 letters reminding various churches, Christian and non-Christian, that the law forbids them from endorsing particular candidates and particular political action. We merely want houses of worship to follow the rules, stay out of partisan politics and keep their tax exemption. And when we [Read More…]

Sixth North Carolina magistrate resigns rather than perform gay weddings.

Bill Stevenson makes the 6th magistrate in North Carolina who apparently got into the public servant gig to serve part of the public, not all of the public. “I prayed about it; I asked for wisdom. I think our hearts have been led away by the cares of the world, our desires, and ultimately, our intense [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: justice for breakfast.

Holy cow, I slept so much last night.  It was 27 degrees this morning and I was the first one bold enough to step away from the warmth of our blanket/pillow pile.  A few seconds later I hear Michaelyn shout from the bedroom, “Do you know what I crave for breakfast?” “Pumpkin pancakes?” “JUSTICE!” And [Read More…]

An SSA student may have saved a guy’s life last night.

So last night was a bit of an adventure.  What do I have to do sitting here in the Oakland airport (apparently I’m taking the scenic route back to Kansas, ugh) than tell you about it? I was walking down the sidewalk with one of the SSA members at Boise State named Zane.  It was [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: my new best friend.

Hey friends.  The talk last night went really well, and then the group went to Dave & Buster’s afterward for some gaming fun.  I won the group a sheep with my gaming prowess as a reminder to never become sheep themselves.  God damn I’m profound. Anyway, I spent some time yesterday in the home of [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: jamming to Roy Zimmerman.

I’m sitting in the KC airport getting ready to fly into Denver (ugh) and then on to Boise.  Flying into Denver sucks.  The airport is really nice, but it’s something about all the mountains – the landing is always rough.  It could be absolutely perfect weather for flying and landing in Denver will still feel [Read More…]

Cutting him loose.

I got to thinking about the whole situation with this guy.  While I don’t feel bad about any consequences that would befall someone because I wrote about how they were cruel (particularly in the way he was), I don’t think it’s moral to use a deal with someone to get them into therapy.  Therapy is [Read More…]
