I woke up early this morning and felt like I hadn’t felt in four years. There was a noticeable lightness in the air. It wasn’t the kind of lightness that you would feel because all is well, it was the sort that you feel when a part of your heavy burden has been removed. The load that I and the majority of Americans have been struggling to carry for four years is a little lighter today and that feels good…. Read more

Dear Right Wing Christians, I have found it hard to sit down and write about this, but I finally forced myself to do it. In the aftermath of one of the most contentious presidential elections in American history, I wanted to reach out to you and tell you a little bit about what’s been on my mind. President-Elect Biden’s victory should have left me feeling ecstatic, but that emotion was only brief, then it turned to grave concern. I saw… Read more

Lately, I’ve heard the term, “The Radical Left”, used more and more often. Through my writings, I’ve been accused of being a part of “The Radical Left” many times. It feels like President Trump has been using the term in every other sentence as the election nears and he appears to be getting more desperate by the minute. The term is used by the Right as a scare tactic. They know it’s a buzzword or a dog whistle that raises… Read more

  Dear Justice Thomas, I am writing to you as a very concerned citizen who also happens to be a Christian, like yourself. You have recently been quite outspoken on the topic of religious liberty as it pertains to same sex marriage rights. Sir, I find your recent comments to be quite disturbing for several reasons. Please allow me to, with all due respect, lay out my case, which I think will show that you have lost sight of history,… Read more

  It felt like it all came to a head on Tuesday night during the first presidential debacle—I mean debate—between President Donald Trump and his opponent, Joe Biden. Watching the president lose all touch with decorum, respect, dignity, and perhaps even sanity was extremely uncomfortable and downright disturbing. The whole world saw it and pitied us. When you can feel the world pitying us, it’s not a good feeling at all.   I wonder, Christian Trump supporters, did you feel… Read more

There are times when we are put through more than we feel we can take. I’ve experienced those times in the last week as I have watched tragedy and grief strike not once, but twice, as death visited my wife’s family two times in the span of a few days, the first was a complete shock, the second, though not unexpected added greatly to the trauma in its unfortunate and cruel timing. I have been a part of this family… Read more

Back in July, I wrote a very popular open letter to President Trump in response to his speech in front of Mount Rushmore wherein he accused public schools of indoctrinating students to “hate America.” Well, I’m back for another round. This past week, the president doubled down by announcing that he will create a “Patriotic Education Commission” so that schools will be forced by “patriotic parents” to “stop teaching about what America has done wrong” and “start teaching about freedoms.”… Read more

Even a pathological liar, given enough opportunities to speak, will occasionally let the truth slip out. I haven’t seen a comprehensive tally since back in July, but at that time, through his first 1,200 days in office, President Trump had made more than 20,000 false statements. Ladies and Gentlemen, that is an AVERAGE of 17 verifiable lies each and every day he’s been president. Look, I’m far from perfect, don’t get me wrong. I have lied many times in my life,… Read more

Trigger Warning: This article is not meant to be a condemnation of all who claim to be conservative Christians. It is simply an historic account of things done under the banner of conservative Christianity. These things cannot be denied; at least not by anyone with the slightest education about our national story. Draw your own conclusions.   Mark Twain is credited (rightly or wrongly) as having once said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes.” There is so much truth… Read more

I’m sick and tired of being guilted by conservative Christians for having empathy and compassion. I’m just over it. Every day, I’m confronted with political memes from right wing Christians implying that if I vote for a Democrat, I’m on the fast train to hell. Every damn day. This particular meme has been popping up a lot on my social media feed lately…   It addresses the usual topics that right wing Christians hide behind as an excuse to show… Read more
