Jesus’ Bad PR

The latest round of bad publicity for Jesus began a little over a month ago. First, “socialist, secret muslim” Barack Hussein Obama launched an all out war on religion by demanding that religious institutions staffed by people of all faiths or no faith, carry insurance that has within its plan, access to free birth control for said staff. Horrified, Republican hopefuls, … More Jesus’ Bad PR

Jesus Died For Red, White, and Blue…

Every year many Churches “celebrate” Independence Day in worship services, and with other church related activities. Some have flag strung platforms and echoes of patriotic hymns fill many sanctuaries. Patriotism, and pride in USA are elevated and embraced. The question that has disturbed me more each year, is why? There are many churches holding to the fundamentals of their faith with steadfast … More Jesus Died For Red, White, and Blue…

Jumping Through Fundamentalist Hoops

Who Is This Right Wing Christian, Republican, Tea Party God?

Interestingly, the religious far right which claims to espouse the Gospel of Christ, presents to the watching world this god! First, he is angry! Angry at anyone who is a Democrat, progressive, liberal. And he is angry about abortion, and “the homosexual agenda”, and feminists, and MSNBC.

Sarah Palin hymn and who’s yer dadd..(I mean brother and sister)and more!

Ok…we as Christians (read evangelical or fundamental Christians) continue to do considerable damage to the Gospel of Christ. Whether it be our “Things go better with Christ”  Coca Cola  logo tea shirt ripoff,  Fred Phelps and his band of crazy “God hates the world and so do we” protestors, or even Benny Hinn charging admission to his “miracle” … More Sarah Palin hymn and who’s yer dadd..(I mean brother and sister)and more!


It didn’t take long in the new year for someone to frustrate me with their toxic mix of religion and politics.  Case in point.  At yesterday’s “Constitutional Reading” during the swearing-in ceremonies, a “birther” (someone who doesn’t believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States, yells out “Except Obama, except Obama!” as Article 2 section 1 … More “…HELP US JESUS!”
