It goes against every instinct I have to write this article. I never would have written it even five years ago. I’m basically a private person who doesn’t easily share my inner-most thoughts, especially not my darker aspects. That private nature actually played a significant role in what got me into the mess I’m about to share. I’ve begun to open up since I started my blogging career. I’ve become much more willing to share my opinions and have been… Read more

Anyone with an ounce of objectivity has been aware that President Trump has been slipping deeper and deeper into a mental health crisis. You can look at his eyes and see that there is a very tired, frightened, and confused person behind them. I’ve known this on some level since the beginning, but his descent into paranoia-fueled madness is escalating at an alarming rate. There is no longer (if there ever was) any logical reason for anyone to want to… Read more

Donald Trump is in big trouble, and for many good reasons. As the House pushes forward with the impeachment hearings, a part of me feels great relief and another part of me feels great anxiety. I want to be happy at the prospect of finally being rid of this terrible blot on American history, but I can’t. There is a large part of me that is dreading what could follow this monumental moment in our history. Before I lay out… Read more

Dear Donald, You may be surprised to hear this from me, given how much I’ve written in protest against your behavior and policies, but I’m going to miss you when you’re gone. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably have a hard time containing my glee when you step out of the White House for the final time. But a selfish part of me, down deep inside, will miss you. You see, in a very round-about and bizarre way, you’ve made… Read more

I’m tired. The last several years have been hard on a lot of us. I’ll be honest, when I made the commitment to begin writing as a member of the progressive Christian Trump resistance movement, I didn’t fully know what I was getting into. I never imagined that I’d end up with a platform where my opinions and thoughts would be read by tens of thousands of people every month. In my wildest dreams, I never thought my pieces would… Read more

A lot of the things I write get shared on some large social media platforms. Most of those tend to be sites for progressive Christians. Recently, I’ve noticed that there is a growing contingent of conservative Christians who’ve joined these sites to offer counter-arguments in the comment sections. I have absolutely no problem with that, in fact, I welcome it. When I write a piece about politics from a progressive Christian’s perspective, I do so hoping that some of the… Read more

Hey, conservative Christians, let’s talk. First, let me say this, if you are proud of Donald Trump and continue to support him, I’ve got nothing left to say to you. You are in far too deep and are beyond help. You can just move along. But if you are like millions of conservative Christians who are deeply bothered by Trump and what he represents, but just don’t see any way that you can vote against him due to your interpretation… Read more

I’ve often written about the myth of the Good Ol’ Days. It is a fundamental truth that there never was a Good Ol’ Days, there was only a time of ignorance. In that sense, I sure do miss the Good Ol’ Days. I miss the days when I was young and went to church completely ignorant of the fact that most of the people sitting in the sanctuary shared very different political views from my family. Back then, I never… Read more

Before I begin, let me just say, I understand that I run the risk of being hypocritical here. I write a political column from the perspective of my progressive Christian world view. So, yes, I do have a political agenda, just like everyone else. The difference between my approach and a more conservative Christian’s approach is very crucial, however, and I think this gets lost in the discussion. Progressive Christians, like myself, are very insistent that the Constitution should be… Read more

As Donald Trump’s poll numbers continue to plummet, the most conservative Christians continue to be rock-solid in their support. They believe that Trump is hand-picked by God to carry out their agenda. When confronted with the obviously un-Christian behaviors of Trump, they will cite how God used King David, a very flawed person, so Trump is good enough for them. Yet, all the while, the key points of the right wing Christian agenda are based upon their very biased interpretation… Read more
