As a Catholic blogger, I’ve immersed myself into joining several social media blogging groups in order to help my articles gain more traffic. Most of the groups I am involved with are the generally non-denominational Christian bloggers groups. While my articles are mostly well-received in Catholic circles, general Christian sites tend to be a mixed bag. Most Christian bloggers are quite pleasant to engage with, whereas others who hold fundamentalist views can be quite hostile towards anyone who expresses anything… Read more

“God Wants You To Be Happy And Successful!” After newly converting from nominal Catholicism to Evangelical Christianity in my late teens, my passionate goal was to eventually attend a one-year discipleship program at a non-denominational Bible school. After high school, I decided to work as an apprentice carpenter to earn enough money to support my eventual journey. I ended up working for a friend I had met in a KJV-only Bible study group who owned his own construction company, thinking… Read more

There is a story in ancient Greek mythology about a man named Narcissus. He was known to be highly attractive and was also very prideful in a sense that he disdained those who fell in love with him. He wandered into the woods one day and the goddess Nemesis, who was angered by his arrogant behaviour, led him to a pool of water. Narcissus noticed his own reflection in the water and was so marveled by his own beauty that… Read more

In a modern, secular society, tradition is sometimes viewed as the final heartbeat of a dying culture. When some hear the word ‘tradition,’ the first thing that comes to mind is outdated beliefs, kooky rituals, pointless customs and excuses to control the general population. Some who might have grown up in traditionally religious households might continue to blindly follow their belief-system because it’s part of their heritage. Others, whether they remain Christian or not, might completely abandon it to pursue… Read more

This is a line-for-line response to a vlog post I happened to stumble across by Brian G. Murphy, founder of I understand this video may be quite controversial for most of my readers, and I’m sure my critique of it might garner an equal, if not greater, reaction. His lines from the video will be in red, while my responses will be in black. Here goes… Jesus is polyamorous. Um….wut? Yeah, you heard me right. Jesus is polyamorous. We… Read more

Photo credit: Flickr ***CONTENT WARNING: DISTURBING IMAGES*** I have always understood members of the LGBTQ community have endured hostile and unjust treatment throughout history. I grew up in an era when it was common for kids in school to name-call using homophobic slurs. To be called such things was some of the most humiliating and dehumanizing ways to make people feel inferior. Although this sort of injustice is becoming less and less common as society is becoming more accepting, it… Read more

Growing up in a rural community, I had the privilege of learning how to care for animals, whether it was on my own farm or someone else’s. While I have a small amount of experience with livestock like cattle and pigs, I owned a couple dogs and raised some rabbits of my own. I often heard people joke about whether I was raising my rabbits for food, but the thought of eating my own pets was something I avoided to… Read more

I’m a certified journeyman carpenter with over 15 years of experience in the construction industry. I’ve worked alongside several tradespersons with varying educational and employment experiences – all of who have brought value to the projects at hand. While many workers had their strengths in either book smarts or job site experience, some of the most successful tradespersons I’ve worked with were those who familiarized themselves with the rules of the building codes. Building codes in the construction industry are necessary… Read more

I mentioned in many previous articles how I converted from cradle-Catholicism to Protestant Evangelicalism as a teenager. A guest preacher from a Christian summer camp who was instrumental in my dramatic conversion experience had given me a King James Version of the Bible. Upon receiving this gift, he had told me to read no other Bible but that one alone, and that I would come to understand why someday. Despite feeling confused, I accepted the gift as though no felony… Read more
