Possibly the Worst Argument Against Atheism

  I came across this article from The Catholic Register about Andy Bannister’s book The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist. Andy is promoting it as a humorous Christian apologetics book that he thinks atheists will enjoy reading, too. This article offers no clues to the validity of that thought. One thing that stuck out to me…

Jesus Is Not the Magic Word that Makes It Okay

  I imagine many of you have heard about Christopher Routson, the Ohio steel worker who was recently fired from his job for sharing his faith. If not, here is one version of events from his GoFundMe page:   Chris Routson was fired from his job as a steel worker in Middletown after sharing his faith….

Is Creation Evangelism the Answer?

Someone recently shared an article with me about the importance of creation evangelism in the world today. Apparently creation apologetics is the only hope for the future of Christianity: because if you don’t believe in a literal Genesis, why should you believe in the story of Christ? Why, indeed. The article went on to say…

A War on Christians?

Is there a war on Christians in America? More and more Christians seem to think so, and even political leaders are arming themselves against the atheist plot to overthrow our Christian theocracy and claim the death of god. Think that’s funny? Not everyone is laughing. If the memes in my social media news feeds are…

A Secular Cultural Jihad in Mississippi?

Apparently there was quite a moment to behold at the Brandon High School football game Friday night. When the high school marching band was told they could not perform the hymn “How Great Thou Art” a lone voice from the crowd stepped in. Like something straight out of a movie, one by one others joined…

When Christians Do Not Love the Sinner

Earlier today a relative of mine posted this story on Facebook about a Christian singer who came out of the closet last year. This relative has a good heart and her views represent the best Christianity has to offer. And the conversation that followed was as good as can be expected, really: Christians debating on…

I Was a Purity Culture Failure

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver just made a great case against abstinence-only sexual education. If you haven’t seen it please go check it out. I wrote my own thoughts on the topic a while back in a post called Pure Sex Talk. I encourage you to read it, but there is so much more…

The Devil in Detroit

In case you missed it, The Satanic Temple has unveiled their statue of Baphomet in Detroit. Christian protesters are, of course, losing their minds with weeping and prayers in the streets. I never thought I would like Satanists so much. For those of us who are able to proceed past the word “Satan” without crippling…

Has the North Finally Embraced the Stars and Bars?

I don’t know about you, but I have noticed the Confederate flag popping up in places I’ve never seen it before. I live in the northern Midwest, and do you know how many friends I have who own a Confederate flag? Zero. And yet, suddenly some of these same friends are including the Confederate flag…

Movie Time!

Thanks to my Amazon Prime membership, I did finally get around to seeing “God’s Not Dead” this weekend. It was free, so I figured I would see what it’s all about. It is, of course, Christian propaganda at its finest. I expected that. What I didn’t expect is how much I was rooting for it…

I Went to School with Jesus. And So Did You.

I have never understood the popular Christian viewpoint that god should be in schools. The debate about the separation of church and state is the number one way Christians in America like to sabotage their own cause. Why isn’t it more obvious to them? If you have followed my story you know that I once traveled…

Don’t Do Drugs, Join My Cult Instead!

One morning when I was in the seventh grade an unexpected assembly was announced. We were thrilled. We all filed into the gym where we found a large screen, stage lights, sound system, drums, and guitars. That was different. As the last group took their seats, the lights went down and we found ourselves in…
