I tried to stay away from a Macklemore think piece, but as people are still outraged about his win 14 hours later, here goes. The Grammy Awards aired Sunday night and it was an overall good show. The Grammys eliminated a lot of niche categories, which I feel is wrong, so what’s left is generally […]
I’m starting what will hopefully be a semi-monthly series about Bible stories that are told with a humorous twist. These are the stories you read about in Sunday School and church, but I can guarantee you they won’t be told the same way. Unless you went to a cool Sunday School class or a cool church, that is.
I keep reading about how some conservative Christians are active in the Tea Party and other conservative movements to put a 100% Christian government in place in America. This is also known as a Christianocracy. I really think this is ultimately a bad idea, and here are 5 reasons why. 1. Christians can’t even agree […]
Nigeria signed an anti-gay measure into law. The law prohibits gay people from marrying, socializing, congregating, partying, and basically talking to each other. It also prohibits others from not reporting gay activity or talking about gay topics. Anti-gay fervor is sweeping the world and Africa is taking the lead on the most severe laws. Is God pleased? No. No, He isn’t.

You’ve got to be kidding me.

My heart goes out to Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton and Trayvon’s brother today. Trayvon would have been 19, which is a lot more mature than George Zimmerman’s life decisions. The lives of black boys and men mean so little in this country. It’s disgusting. Now someone trying to profit from it, which is worse.
You may have heard about my story yesterday at XoJane where this white lady wrote about how I had a difficult time with yoga because I’m “fairly heavy” and black, which are things that would understandably contribute to my ignorance of yoga and lack of enthusiasm toward it, right?
Note: I don’t hate women or feminists, and I feel that women should have equal standing with men in society. I’m not implying that any of the pictured women are not smart. I’m just asking what is driving the requirement for women to be nude to show adulthood versus men not being given the same requirement.
Some people have taken to the Internet to make a name for themselves as painters or as people who want to make religious or political statements. Let’s look at 3 contemporary Christian and political art pictures for which I have so many questions.
When is enough, enough? When will people realize that in order for capitalism to work correctly, there needs to be a proper balance struck between corporate responsibility and government regulation? ”Government get out of my way,” isn’t a good thing. If the EPA weren’t around, do you think the coal company would have said anything about the spill?
