20 January 2012 will be etched into my mind forever. It is the day, if any of you who read this blog with any regularity, I lost my job. So it has been a little over 6 months and I have gone through several periods of ups and downs. Anger, sadness, grief, disbelief, depression and … More Struggles…
Recently…as in the last post, someone commented, (and for the life of me I cannot find it, and I didn’t delete it), that the only reason gay people want marriage to include them is so that it legitimizes their sexual activity. In other words is it only about sex. Not love. Apparently, a gay couple … More About Sex?
“They told these kids that anyone who was gay was going to die at the age of 42,” she said. “It just blows me away that no one stopped this.” Comment by a mother concerning the “Christian” rock group Junkyard Prophets.

My daughter was told the other day, after she confronted a Fundamentalist Pastor on Facebook over his behind the scenes attack on my credibility as a Christian, that I will have to answer at the judgement seat for loving people and my political affiliations. Apparently , at least according to him, unconditional love and grace are not what … More The Mark Of a True Christian (as seen by the American Church)
I am in the process of reading a book by Steve Brown called “Three Free Sins”. It challenges many of the false concepts in Christianity that have become entrenched in Evangelical culture. I will write a complete review when I am done with it. Suffice to say, it will make you think about what you believe … More Really Free?
A couple of weekends ago, thousands of people assembled in over 130 cities around the country to picket for freedom of religion. Those faithful followers of the more conservative Catholic, and Evangelical strands see religion, particularly, their brand of religion under attack. And according to many of them, the great socialist, satan, Barack Hussein Obama is behind … More The Mythical “War On Religion”

And I have felt the sting and pain of rejection from … More How To Create A Christian Church
Reverend Dennis Terry said this in his introduction of Republican hopeful Rick Santorum… “I don’t care what the liberals say, I don’t care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation…There is only one God and his name is Jesus. I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those … More The Reduction and Destruction Of The Gospel
This is the last part of a brief look at the words of Jesus and what He meant by them. I saved this one for last because this is the one that most Christians explain away when it comes to making pronouncements about others sins. “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. … More Jesus Didn’t Mean What He Said?
