Anorexia journal: after session #3.

That went well.  Katy Perry has picked up that I approach my condition very analytically and so she explains, scientifically, why she’s conducting our sessions in particular ways.  This comforts me greatly. She also acknowledged that it was good that I have awareness of what’s going on.  For instance, I know I’m doing damage to [Read More…]

In July the US Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia ruled in a 2-1 decision that much of the ACA, which has secured healthcare for millions of Americans, must be defunded.  The court has, happily, just withdrawn that decision.

Ugh, here’s on to appeal.   U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman, a Reagan appointee, ruled that the ban on gay marriage in Louisiana is constitutional because same-sex marriage is a slippery slope that could lead to incest.  I’m not joking.  He wrote in his decision: For example, must the states permit or recognize a marriage between [Read More…]

You know how you and I pay rent?  Well, many pastors don’t.  Above and beyond the pastor’s ordinary salary, many churches give them an additional housing allowance (which is also not taxable).  Often this is…exorbitant.  How much so?  Here’s a handy infographic: So why take issue with the parsonage exemption when a church could just [Read More…]
