What people should make fun of us for isn’t our overwhelming opposition to same-sex civil marriage…(but)…for believing in a God who created the universe in 7 days and came to live as a man who died for our sins and rose from the dead 3 days later and sits on the right hand of God on a throne in Heaven and indwells us as Christians through the Holy Spirit.
It’s past time for women to be recognized officially as Americans as many are indeed important parts of American history. As for Harriet Tubman, slavery happened. Stop trying to shy away from that reality and celebrate the strength and honor that came out of it with a story like Harriet’s.
Christians, do you really want to have more blood on your hands from trans people not feeling Jesus’ love because you can’t stand the thought of someone living in their truth that Jesus can help flesh out more perfectly in Him for them?
Jesus has always been one to wade in the messy sewer backwash of my life and get me on a better path. That’s such a loving response. I mean, often we say we love people but aren’t willing to get to know them personally or walk through thorns and thickets with them to get them out and on to a better path.
Mike Huckabee has a lot to learn about Trans people and issues and he’s not alone. It would be better, however, if he wouldn’t show his discomfort in the form of “jokes” that are simply unfunny hate speech coming from a man whose Savior lovingly and graciously commands him to be kind to everyone, tenderhearted, and forgiving, and love others as he loves himself.
This is my take on race relations in the U.S. in the lens of the decision to not indict Eric Garner’s killer, even though the coroner ruled the death a homicide and said the cause of death was external pressure applied to Garner’s chest and neck, preventing breathing.
This week I’m going off about Ferguson, Eric Garner, Mike Brown, the police, the government, Floyd Mayweather (bum of the week), Ray Rice, Louisiana, Mark Driscoll, the Christian Church, ISIL, and saying something about the re-emergence of Naomi Campbell’s long-lost edges. I also celebrate President Barack Obama, who is my boo this week. Enjoy!

I am not going to shy away from painful and hard conversations about racial inequality in America and America’s constant need to uphold white supremacy above all things. I am not here to make you more comfortable talking about race by not showing my anger in discussing it. I do not feel sorry that it makes you uncomfortable or scared. I’m trying to live.
May God bless and preserve and change Baltimore for the better. RIP Freddie Gray. May some good come out of this. I just hate the cost at which it came.
She can clearly read into things and look for context clues on another level than we can. If that’s not what’s going on with her, then the only other option is that she’s a utter loon-bat idiot who needs to fade away from public life and we should stop granting her airtime to spout her nonsensical ramblings.
