  • While the title's not a direct quote, that's the gist of what was said by Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) in a letter to <a href="http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1109/29336.html">Politico</a>. The essence of this is, "keep your superstitious foolishness to yourselves and leave the governing to us progressives, or we'll steal your money."

If you’re wondering where you may have heard of Rep. Woolsey before, she was the one responsible for Cindy Sheehan’s disruption of the 2006 State of the Union address. She had given her sole invitation to Sheehan, despite knowing she was a full-on loon.

  • I was greeted at the Christian bookstore where I work this fine Saturday morning with a set of papers stapled together on the table behind the sale counter.  It sort of grabbed my attention, as it said in big, bold, all-caps letters, "TELL OTHER CHRISTIANS AND SAVE A SOUL FROM HELL."  

So immediately I think, "this doesn't look like company material...."

    Salvation by Faith…and the Sabbath?

  • Just got an email that's torqued my lugnuts a bit too much concerning Brian McLaren. In case you're unfamiliar, he's one of the most influential "evangelicals" in America...at least, according to Time magazine. I put "evangelical" in quotes, because, by my reading, the man doesn't seem to have the whole Christian thing figured out yet.

    Brian McLaren needs to butt out

  • <i>originally posted December 4th, 2008</i>

For some perverted reason, over the last few years there's not been a Christmas that has gone unspoiled by some tomfoolery. This year (2008), the flashpoint is apparently centered in the Washington State Capital building, where an atheistic organization placed a sign protesting religion in general, Christianity in particular, and Christmas expressly. 

It's a display that smacks of spiteful children railing about how unfair some fact of life is.

    Merry…winter solstice? I don’t think so.
