Because Jesus Said Plenty About Marriage, and Other Inconvenient Stuff Too…UPDATED

"Jesus Christ and the rich young man," Heinrich Hoffman.

“Marriage? Funny you should ask about that, young man…”*

Hey y’all. Didn’t you know that Jesus didn’t say nothin about homosexuality in the Bible? True story. You ain’t gonna find Our Lord say that particular word nowheres in the Scriptures.

Of course, Jesus said plenty about marriage, and I’m here to tell y’all, it’s damned inconvenient to the spirit of the age nowadays. [Read more...]

Coming To A Post Office Near You: The Flannery O’Connor Postage Stamp

There it is, with peacock feathers, and everthang. It’s supposed to be available come June 5th, or so. More information can be found out about the stamp, and about Ms. O’Connor, right cheer.

I’m kinda bummed that it’s the 3 ounce, $.93 variety. Oh well, we’ll buy a few anyway, just for the wonder of it. I kinda miss her horn rimmed glasses, though.

Speaking of wonders, you know what’s hilarious? Outfits like Jezebel waxing enthusiastic about a stamp commemorating Flannery. Because if anyone has anything in common with the author of Wise Blood, and A Good Man Is Hard To Find, it’s the average Jezebel reader.

Am I right?

3 Weird Things I’m Doing On Top Of My (Secret) Lenten Penance This Year

*Sigh* It’s going to be a long Lent.

It’s the Lenten season, and each of us will make a personal sacrifice of some sort. I’m not divulging what I am seriously sacrificing this time around. Maybe I’ll disclose it later, perhaps even years from now if I’m still hammering away on a keyboard.

After seven years, I’m still learning my way through Lent. I’ll probably still be learning right up until I’m receiving Last Rites, though we don’t call it that anymore. [Read more...]
