'Fear' : Why Trayvon Martin is dead

Be afraid That’s the unmistakable message which Americans are incessantly fed, be it from the Media, from Religious figures, from Politicians.. Be afraid Your freedom, your family, your children, your home, your job, your religion, all that defines you, all that you hold near and dear, is in a constant state of peril, at risk... Read more »

Rick Santorum's Bible is misogynistic, perverse and dangerous

Rick Santorum's Bible is misogynistic, perverse and dangerous
In a speech to Tea Party conservatives on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, Rick Santorum claimed President Obama’s policies are not ‘based on the Bible’ but rather ‘some phony theology’. In other words, Rick Santorum is suggesting-as a criticism mind you- that in the year 2012, the policies of the President of the United States are... Read more »

An Open Discussion about God

Let me start by saying this is not meant to be a pointlessly provocative post; the intention is to spur a thoughtful, and respectful conversation. Is there a God, and if so, how does…”it”, work? Is there a “larger plan”, a script of sorts, with us as the “featured” actors, invariably unaware of what the... Read more »

I don't think you like your God

More than 90% of Americans believe in God. More than 75% of Americans are Christian. In other words, most see Jesus as the bouncer at the door which leads to eternal salvation. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. [Matthew 5:9] Resistnot evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on... Read more »

Five Reasons Occupy Wall Street is "better" than the Tea Party

Less Red Squiggly Lines w/Occupy Wall Street.

Look, if you want to display a  misguided, fear driven message on a sign, that’s your First Amendment Right, (And we love the Consitution.. Constitution/Bill of Rights!)  but can you at least express your ignorance using proper spelling?  We understand you hate "socilism", we know you want the "Goverment" to stay away from your Medicare (which they provide), but adherence to proper spelling should not be considered an elitist act reserved for latte drinking freedom hating liberals. Red Squiggly lines are not the enemy, nor are they a product of Big Brother. Listen to them my Tea Party friends.

Obama's Tanning Tax Goes Against God's Will

Much to the chagrin of John Boehner, Snooki, and millions of other “fake bakers” nationwide, President Obama’s 2010 Health Care Bill, imposed a “draconian” tax of 10% on all indoor tanning. Now the President, who by the way was born ( in the United states) with the “luxury” of dark skin, knew this was going... Read more »

If Shannon Stone's Death was Part of God's Plan, then I hope I'm not Part of it

Shannon Stone, baseball fan, firefighter, husband…father, will be laid to rest this upcoming Monday, four days after that unimaginable tragedy in Arlington. What sadly will not rest any time soon however, are the minds of his loved ones. As we all do when unforeseen misfortune befalls us-they must be asking the simply worded, but never... Read more »

A Short Letter to God about the Bulls

A Short Letter to God about the Bulls
Hey God-Steve here. It’s been a while since I’ve solicited your services; I generally try to respect your busy schedule and plate full of responsibilities. This however is an emergency. I understand the world is chock full of pressing issues and concerns-extremism of various sorts-(you’re probably quite familiar with the religious variety),  famine, violence, climate change,...
