Yes, The LGBT Movement is Coming For Your Church

While that might seem to be a click bait headline, I actually do not believe it is. Let show this sharing a story. Identifying a WikiPedia Problem I recently had to update the Wikipedia page for “public accommodation” to say that, no, churches are not public accommodations which are barred from discrimination based on the Civil…

Rebuilding an Eroded Culture

Excuse me while I share what seemed, at the time, to be one of my greatest personal failures. I was completing my student teaching in a high school class in Louisiana. The subject was American History. I was lucky enough, I believed, to teach the unit on World War II. I tested on my lessons…

Against Trump

Friends Don’t Let Friends Stumble Into Fascism.

Have Mercy

What kind of a person has a baby that we find in a toilet? Perhaps it’s a person alone enough, poor enough, money-less enough, friendless enough, and helpless enough to have a baby on a toilet.

Against the Female Draft

In 2012, a rather spectacular thing happened. A man with no legs ran faster than most with two could ever dream of running. Oscar Pistorius (no matter what the facts of his recent troubles) did a remarkable thing. Overcoming the real barriers which his disability gave him (and with the help of some truly remarkable…

But What If the Markers Were Correct? The Legal Discrimination and Mandatory Segregation For Those With Cystic Fibrosis

A story about cystic fibrosis and genetics has been making rounds on the internet fairly recently. Many people and many publications are talking about it. A student was removed from school because of his “genes.” The student (child A) with “genetic markers of cystic fibrosis” was removed from school and sent away merely because of a test he received as…

MSNBC and the National Anthem

I just saw an ad for MSNBC that said “America is complicated. That’s why our national anthem is a question.” I am having a hard time finding a link to the actual video, but to document the first line, I give you this corroborating evidence. "America is complicated. That's why our national anthem is a…

Making a Murderer: Rebutting the Rebuttals

Se is an update on my previous post about the Documentary, Making a Murderer. Once again, SPOILER ALERT, if you haven’t seen it, go watch it. You will have to complete the series to avoid spoilers here.

TAKE TWO: Does Ted Cruz Have a Citizenship Problem? Well…. No.

*****So, in my last post, (since deleted) I narrated my worries that developed when trying to research a reliable answer on Ted Cruz’s presidential eligibility. I put out my worry and asked to be proven wrong. I was proven wrong. Really wrong. My reading of a law was completely off. I felt compelled to take…

The Ted Cruz Citizenship Problem: My Take.

Sorry guys, I had to take this down because I got majorly corrected in my reading of a statute. I’m a little embarrassed. I’ll put it back up when I get time to edit it and not spread misinformation. Sorry for the false alarm, and I’ll give a good critique when I’m done with it….

Kathleen Parker’s Crash Course in Bible Terminology

Despite Kathleen Parker being a Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist for the Washington Post, she does not know enough about Christianity to distinguish the Bible’s description  of the church, in multiple passages, from some sort of GOP-canvasing Zombie-Jesus. It is also unclear whether or not she knows that Jesus is not in the grave. This is also a good example…
