Popping the Hood

My posting is probably going to be light. I do contract work, which comes in bursts. Let’s just say my post rate will be inversely proportional to how well my career is going. [Read more...]

Another spectacular deconstruction of God’s Not Dead on Patheos.

Can something be dead if it never existed in the first place?  Boom.  Philosophy. Speaking of philosophy, Dan Fincke has penned what I think are the greatest rebuttals to the piece of exceedingly low-hanging fruit that is the movie God’s Not Dead.  It’s literally a movie produced for people who want to be lied to.  [Read More...]

American Family Association: we must push gays back into the closet.

Sometimes I just want to go through a press release by the American Family Association and just write my thoughts to every line.  This is one of those times. It is sometimes difficult for Christians to comprehend the breathtaking speed with which the gay movement has succeeded in America. I can imagine.  They say they [Read More...]

Dan Popp: god wants us to impeach Obama.

What are impeachment advocates to do?  The polls show that Americans don’t want Obama impeached, so what’s the best way to convince them?  Could you lay out your gripes in an organized fashion attempting to convince them with reason?  Well, you could; but what if reason doesn’t favor you?  In that case you could change [Read More...]

BREAKING: federal judge blocks Alabama law restricting access to abortion.

This is a huge victory for Planned Parenthood, which filed a lawsuit last year after a law was passed that would require abortion clinics to have admitting privileges to a hospital.  Everybody knew the actual reason: the restriction would cause three of the state’s five clinics to shut down.  The reason given for the law [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: my first date to the fair.

When I was in high school, getting a date to the fair was like a declaration to the world that you were an achiever.  It was actually a pretty big thing.  Sadly, for me, I never got a date.  I went with the family a few times and always felt like a bit of a [Read More...]

Greg Abbott Can’t Overturn True Marriage

On Monday, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott filed an appeal to reverse the ruling that found the state’s ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional made by a US District Court back in February. In his brief, which feebly tried to defend the ban, Attorney General Abbott made the claim that (emphasis my own) “[because] [Read More...]

Lying to look like a martyr defeats the purpose.

The Liberty Counsel has a problem: they’re committed to the message that Christians, which make up the majority of our population, are put upon.  The problem is that Christians in the United States actually enjoy a bunch of special privileges.  This is like being committed to defending stuffed crust pizza as health food. But rather [Read More...]
