Recently, a friend on Facebook made a brave break by positing that Christianity hangs about the necks of African Americans like a millstone and is responsible for much pain and suffering. Of course, his claim was immediately rejected and shot down with some even saying that "My Jesus would never do such a…Continue

Jesus take the wheel.
Jesus is Lord!
Y’all need Jesus!
Jesus on stationery.
Jesus on itty bitty gold crosses dangling from your mom’s neck.
Jesus on billboards.
Bearded prophet of the meek and early archetype of the 1960s hippie.
Jesus was born Jewish, but then converted to Dudeism after he realized that the Romans and the Pharisees were fucking fascists. Today lots of people think he’s the son of the guy who created the universe and that our life is in his hands. But probably he was just a dude who thought people should mellow out and stop getting so worked up about stuff. Sadly, few of his followers seem to actually realize that.…Continue
I read an interesting article on CNN the other day by Craig Gross. For those who aren't familiar with Craig, he's a pastor and founder of xxxchurch.com, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here:…Continue
It is not essential to believe in God or in the historical Jesus or in Christianity. What resonates for me is a deeper meaning than prayers or ritual or litanies can provide. It is an awareness and understanding of who I am, personally, and professionally. It is in being able to think and reason and pay attention to what is real and distinguish that which is superstition or tradition. It is being willing and able to think of others, including other…Continue
I have been often troubled by the many mortal human attitudes and behaviors many different deities have taken on in various holy texts. Petty emotions like jealously, bigotry, hate, anger, and lust, to name a few. All of these…Continue
So, I listened to a little bit of Dave Ramsey today on talk radio because, well, conservative talk is about the only option in East Tennessee, and I usually prefer talk with which I disagree compared with bad pop and worse rock. If you don't know who Dave Ramsey is, he's…Continue

Dispatchers got a call Wednesday at 4:23 a.m. about a dude wearing only shorts and socks. Responding deputies found the man, later identified as Paul Eggers Greene, 18, jumping up and down, screaming, yelling, and waving his arms, according to a…Continue
All from a codfish story form the northern sea.. something about bad scientific method with cod count at 100 in report rather than 1,000,000
Okay usually you get people that just like "historic Jesus" or think the concept is neat, or like the happy feel good hippy junk he preached about.
But no, I cannot stand Jesus, not at all.
Why is this?
Well it can be summed up as: He is an inconsistent, hypocritical, asshole.
Without getting too theologically involved, lets take the trinity, in which you believe "God" and "Jesus" (not their actual names but the most frequently used aliases the followers use when…
So yet another victim from the non-mental health funding republicans all the way back to Regan. He knew there'd be this crap happening what with PCP, LSD, whatever pills, angel dust.. coke.. (all man made like god and all fail people)
I wonder now about the validity…

Well today's Good Friday when we're all reminded by Christians about the bloody crucifixion of the almost certainly fictional Jesus Christ. So I thought I would write a seasonal piece about the topic that disregards why…Continue
I've been reading a series of books by David Weber called the Safehold series. Weber is an interesting writer. I'm not really a "fan" as in I adore his works and all that but his books do keep one busy. The plot of Safehold is complicated. It begins eight hundred years before the main part of the story gets underway at a time the human race was at war with a race called the Gbaba that was determined to extinguish humanity from the universe. Humanity was loosing the war. As a last ditch…Continue

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve read or heard from Christians that they have “a personal relationship” with Jesus Christ I would probably not be writing this on account of the unimaginable wealth I would have accumulated. You see, Christians love saying it:
I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Getting to know Christ.
Jesus is my best…
Gwen (a fraudulent friend of my late mother) asked me why did I hate G'd so much. I asked, who told you that I hated G'd? When did I say that and where did I say that? Gwen told me, well you don't go to church, you don't worship Jesus. I knew where Gwen was going with this and I turned the tables on her. I said the following.
First of all, get your facts straight before you come to me with bullshit. Let's address this Jesus thang, shall we? Where does it say from the OT…Continue

"In a world that is really upside down, the true is a moment of the false."- Guy Debord, Society of the Spectacle
What is an interesting quandary amid Christians is the heaven factor. It appears everyone wants to go; however, no one's in a rush to get there; a spark of revelation; could be.…Continue
