Married to Christian Zionist

There are days (like today) when I just can't stand it. I want to wrap my bitter little hands around his throat for believing in such a murderous, sadistic concept. (Er...) How he can be so fucking idiotic and such a smart person at the same time? How do we live under the same fucking roof?



I just told him that Israel was was horrible and that the US is wrong to support Israel just because his precious Jebus might come back, and then I stormed out of the room. So, of course, he's mad… Continue

A bikini cat fight over belief/disbelief?

It's more likely than you think.



It's obviously a commercial for the book and it's obviously satire. (Is that a religious guy peeking over the fence?). Patriarchal idiocy, fun, or both? Demeaning or stereotype busting? Good/Bad Marketing?



I don't have a problem with the ad content (production values aside), but it bothers me for reasons I can't put my fingers on at the…

Adding another blog to my cadre of blogs

This is getting ridiculous. I feel as if I'm divided in a million little pieces. I have my blog for writing up my stuff about Lost: We're all normal here. I generally keep up with that only when Lost is actually airing. I have this community. I have a small blog for work that I kind of dislike, but keep up for appearances. I have a personal journal at LiveJournal, which is highly fractionated and very private. Now I'm starting a new… Continue

And thus, the secular Republican turns water into wine

...and the believing Democrat is subjected to the Rovian lions.



The New Evangelicals: Like The Right, Only Broader



Heading into lift the gates of the lion's pens event, Warren was declaring that, since it is his job as a pastor to shepherd “Democrats and Republicans and liberals and conservatives and moderates” he wasn’t going to ask “gotcha questions” but…

New Calvinist and Universalist/Multicultural Evangelicals

There is an interesting article in the Star-Telegram today about the fragmentation of Evangelicals:Religion: American evangelicals are fragmenting:



Evangelicals need to do something fast. One response says the movement must tighten up. Evangelicals need to hew even more closely to the most conservative and literalist standards of the Bible. They need to stop making…

Political Religion: Tax Exempt Status

From: Proposition 8 and Religion in California - ToTheCenter:



Currently, in California, Propositon 8 is on the ballot to define marriage as being solely between a man and woman. While I am not surprised at this movement, what does sound alarm bells for me has to do with churches. Today, my mother went to a meeting held on church grounds, but not inside the building structure itself, where they discussed…

Altar Boyz

The following appeared in Redwood City Daily News



..."Altar Boyz" feels like a marketing idea that was thrown together quickly and carelessly to try and make a buck. As a result, it has the vibe of a dishonest piece of commercial collaboration, like a con man turned preacher.



A marketing idea? Sounds like religion in general. A con man turned preacher? Isn't that redundant?

Need another blog

Like a hole in the head. But, maybe I can use it for my more anti-theistic rants. It's just not cool to do it anywhere else.

How much does Ning link networks that you are in?
