The Pope is senile

Posted · Add Comment

“But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” Luke 22:36 There’s only one explanation if comments reportedly made by Pope Francis over the weekend are accurate—the Pope is senile. Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of […]

Obama's Faith Pt. 2

Posted · Add Comment

The original “Obama’s Faith” post I wrote nearly 7 years ago. At the time I noted that I am always hesitant to opine on the state of another individual’s relationship with God, but a lot of time has passed, truths have been revealed and while I will not pronounce judgment on the status of Obama’s […]

Sally Kohn, Gay Fascist

Posted · Add Comment

Sally Kohn is a lesbian, CNN contributor and has a law degree (allegedly). She’s also a militant gay fascist who would like to force Bible-believing Christians out of the public sphere and probably into camps if she had her way. As The Federalist’s Robert Tracinski wrote, she’s a decidedly illiberal “liberal.” What is interesting about Kohn’s […]

War on Christians Redux

Over at HotAir.com, they’ve assembled their “Quotes of the Day” with a focus on the Houston pastor subpoena fiasco. Skimming the briefs, this one from Slate.com, caught my eye. But I’m not particularly interested in defending the Houston lawyers’ actions, because, frankly, they were incredibly stupid, instantly regrettable, and utterly unnecessary. Yes, Houston’s anti-LGBT coalition […]

War on Christians

Posted · Add Comment

If there’s a culture war going on in America today, Christians aren’t the aggressors. Last week, the openly lesbian mayor of Houston applauded (then backpedaled and threw her lawyers under the bus) a series of subpoenas issued to five area pastors demanding the contents of their sermons and any communications they may have had with […]

Feeling decidely un-Christian tonight

Last night, amid much media attention, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced that she had vetoed S.B. 1062, an anti-gay bill that would have quickly meant that gays in Arizona would be forced to sit at the back of the bus, be banned from Woolworth’s lunch counters, prevented from attending state colleges, be harassed and probably […]

War on Christian conscience

Posted · Add Comment

Last week, Fox News talking head and columnist Kirsten Powers wrote a column for USA Today that accused legislators in Kansas of creating a new system of “Jim Crow” laws with their efforts to protect religious believers from being forced to violate their consciences by providing services to gay nuptials. Four days later, she published another piece, […]

Deja vu all over again

Posted · 1 Comment

As my time in journalism school at Cal Poly continues to retreat into the dim corners of my memory, there are still handful of in-class incidents that I remember from those halcyon days of the early ’90s. This morning on “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace made a statement that triggered on of those memories. […]

Completely missing the point

The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto tweeted a link to this story on the CNN belief blog that literally (a la Joe Biden—which means figuratively) blew my mind. I was raised as an evangelical Christian in America, and any discussion of Christian-Jewish-Muslim relations around the world must include the phenomenon of American Islamophobia, for which […]

God's economics

Reading this bit of stupidity today made my blood boil. Americans often tell pollsters they yearn for a return to the Christian principles on which the U.S. was founded. If so, they should take a closer look at the Romney-Ryan ticket. Jesus’s teachings regarding wealth are nowhere to be found in Paul Ryan’s budget proposals. […]
