The burden of proof is on God

The burden of proof is on God
Before you fire up those nasty emails, there’s not going to be any faith bashing here. In fact, I’m going to defend your religious beliefs. Sort of. So there I was, enjoying some home made soup at Stormy’s Tavern in Northfield, IL when I slipped down the slope of atheistic entreatment. Atheists can be a... Read more »

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew
When people tell you that they’re members of Christians United for Israel, it’s just a new way of saying, “Some of my best friends are Jews.” Or, like pedophile Roy Moore’s wife, Kayla famously quipped, “One of our attorneys is a JYOOOO.”  To see Mrs. Moore spitting out the word Jew like it was spoiled...

Is Moral Bankruptcy Too High a Price to Pay for a Soaring 401K?

Is Moral Bankruptcy Too High a Price to Pay for a Soaring 401K?
If your answer to the above question is no, you need read no further.  You got your wish. It’s difficult to hate a president reigning over a stock market that makes new highs on a daily basis. Difficult, but not impossible. Ripping open those monthly statements from Merrill Lynch or checking out your TD Ameritrade... Read more »

Will the Return of Slavery End Racism in America?

Will the Return of Slavery End Racism in America?
A few months after Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, I conjured up the headline, “Is Donald Trump Enough of a Racist to Bring Back Slavery?” The title was pure hyperbole and the piece went nowhere. At the time, Trump was making ridiculous claims and bragging about himself in a stream of superlatives that... Read more »

Roy Moore Will Win the Senate Race in Alabama and Take His Rightful Place in the Swamp

Roy Moore Will Win the Senate Race in Alabama and Take His Rightful Place in the Swamp
Roy Moore is probably going to win the seat once held by Jeff Sessions and become Alabama’s next U.S. senator. I say that with the same enthusiasm I feel for my once-a-decade colonoscopy. Roy Moore is uniquely unqualified to be a United States senator, which makes him a Republican in good standing. He will be... Read more »

Vote for Roy Moore for Pastor of the Antioch Baptist Church

Vote for Roy Moore for Pastor of the Antioch Baptist Church
Roy Moore should be the pastor of the Antioch Baptist Church in Gadsden, Alabama and I say that with a caveat for the judge. You may want to parse your sermons carefully Roy, Antioch Baptist Church has a mostly black congregation. On the plus side, it’s conveniently located on East Meighan Boulevard between Johnson’s Hot... Read more »

Are You That Stupid Woman Who Thinks the Government Won't Let You Say "Merry Christmas"?

Are You That Stupid Woman Who Thinks the Government Won't Let You Say "Merry Christmas"?
This so-called “War on Christmas” is one of many contrived threats to America that has Christians circling the manger. I’m here to tell you that the only threat to Christmas is spoiled Eggnog. Donald Trump can put a thousand Christmas trees on his stage and a flashing “Merry Christmas” sign on his podium, but that... Read more »

When you're listening to AC/DC's "Who Made Who," do you ever wonder who made God?

When you're listening to AC/DC's "Who Made Who," do you ever wonder who made God?
Faith seems to require one of two things.  It requires either a lot of inward contemplation, or it requires no serious consideration whatsoever. It may be that lacking the capacity for any kind of serious consideration is the key to a strong faith, but that is an over simplification.  In truth, there are plenty of... Read more »

Christmas: A time for hatred, bigotry and intolerance?

Christmas: A time for hatred, bigotry and intolerance?
Christmas can be a time of peace and good tidings, but not always.  Not all greetings are ho-ho-ho.  The Christmas holiday may give some people too much free time. I was heading to the gym on Thursday-Christmas Eve-when someone swerved into my lane without signaling, causing me to jam on my brakes. This usually means... Read more »

Mike Huckabee is a greater danger to America than ISIS

Mike Huckabee is a greater danger to America than ISIS
Mike Huckabee kicked off his presidential campaign with a fiery speech filled with biblical references, including, “We will deal with jihadis just as we would deal with deadly snakes.” The snake thing is an interesting metaphor, but the real snake in the grass might be  Mike Huckabee.  At least with jihadis, know what you get. ...
