(Credit: Twitter) This afternoon, Donald Trump announced he was disbanding his Manufacturing Council after several of the CEOs on the Council resigned en mass following his unapologetic defense of the white supremacists and neo-Nazis whose violent racism and hatred was on full display over the weekend in Charlottesville, VA. Curiously, no one on Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board has followed suit. However, they haven’t all remained silent. In fact, a few have even thrown their support behind Trump’s defense of the… Read more

(Credit: Paul Sableman, Flickr Creative Commons) I’m a big Atlanta Braves fan. Have been since I was 9 years old. Like, I’m the kid who was so distraught after they lost the ’92 World Series that I couldn’t go to school the next day. I fully recognize that is completely ridiculous, but I’m also in no way embarrassed by that fact. So, here we are. Anyway, needless to say, when the Braves opened up their new (and admittedly completely unnecessary)… Read more

(Source: Facebook) Yesterday, while taking break from playing golf and ranting on Twitter, Donald Trump thought it would be a good idea way to boost his polls numbers and distract from a mountain of investigations to threaten North Korea with “fire and fury like the world has never seen.” Rather than being horrified by the obvious implications of Trump’s threat, Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, TX, released a statement enthusiastically endorsing the idea of a nuclear… Read more

Right?? Ok, maybe not. But I was feeling pretty confident this past Sunday when my pastor started preaching about Jonah. And then he hit me right away with a Jonah fact, I’ll be honest, I had no clue about. Turns out when Jonah was… Read more

(Source: Twitter) Yesterday, the pistol packing president of Liberty University, Jerry Falwell Jr., took to Twitter to lambast Senators Collins, McCain, and Murkowski for not voting in favor of ripping healthcare away from millions of Americans. It’s an odd thing to be outraged about considering Falwell is a self-professed follower of Jesus. You know, that guy from Nazareth who said getting into heaven depends on whether or not we care for the least of these. Falwell followed his indignation up… Read more

(Credit: Caelie_Frampton, Flickr Creative Commons) Yesterday, the supposedly Pro-Life Party™ committed one of the most egregiously anti-life acts in living memory. To be sure, planet earth will not shrivel up and die tomorrow, but by pulling out of the Paris Accord, Donald Trump and the party that pushed him to do so, made it clear that they couldn’t care less about the future of life on this planet – either its quality or even its possibility. It was an astounding act… Read more

(Video screengrab: If the American Health Care Act becomes law, it will lead to the death of untold numbers of people and those souls will depart as the direct result of action taken exclusively by people claiming to be pro-life. For a generation now, the Republican Party has used the siren’s call of being “pro-life” as a wedge issue to divide voters and unite their base. It may have begun as little more than an attempt to wrangle up a few more… Read more

“I don’t want to be a damn flower.” The thought raced through my mind before I even knew what my brain was saying to itself the first time I showed up in the oncologist’s office to find out if the giant mass growing in my chest was cancer or not. The flower itself was beautiful, both in appearance and sentiment. A white orchid brushed with just the slightest touch of pink, it was a kind memorial to a woman I’ll never know who lost… Read more

(Credit: Wikipedia) On April 8, 1966, Time magazine created an uproar with a stark, black and red cover that asked “Is God Dead?” Laity and clergy alike were outraged. Time received somewhere around 3,500 angry letters to the editor, the most it had ever received for a single article. The idea that God could die was outrageously unthinkable to some and outright blasphemy to others. Which was incredibly ironic considering the day Time published its infamous edition. April 8, 1966 was Good Friday…. Read more
