Jehova Told Me To Act -- When Religious Shepherds Fail Their Flocks

Jehovah spoke to me, told me to act. Vester Flanagan.

America, we have to stop the double standard being applied to Christianity. Just like in Islam, and even within Hinduism, you have your extremists. Still many Christians beg me not to judge the entirety of their religion, yet turn right around and…

Hey Girl, Stop What You're Doin'

Hey girl, you’ll drive me to ruin…

Zeppelin seemed oddly appropriate listening for tonight while I was reading more and more articles revealing well-known celebrity men being revealed on the discreet cheating site known as Ashley Madison. A large majority of the men being outed are Christian, have families, and a few have already had major headline backlash…

That's No Moon....and I Don't See Mohammed Either

The past week The Mirror has been circulating a story that ISIS wants to rename the planet Pluto as the “Moon of Mohammed”. Why, pray tell, would one want to not just relegate a planet to moon status, but also name it after a god?

Because, well, I can’t say why the hell these idiots wanted to change its classification to a moon, but as far as the name?…

Planned Parenthood, Women’s Health Funding On The Line

I’ve taken my time the past week to read through and watch transcripts, videos, and podcasts, regarding the Planned Parenthood defunding campaign where claims have been made the organization is selling fetal tissue for a profit. As many might already know, proven heavily edited videos have hit the airwaves depicting top Planned Parenthood clinic leaders as…

Pastor Jeffress: Jesus Wasn't a Law-Breaking Hippie, Condemns Fellow Churches

I normally make an effort to go out of my way to avoid any news stories coming out of FOX news. I also do what I can to not bother responding to any discussion panels either. There is one draw that will get my attention, and keep it, in a FOX news article. Pastors, politics, and biblical scripture.…

Struggling With Codependency Issues

So, with the holiday weekend, the lights dimmed a bit over here on the Bluegrass. Between the demands at work, home, and at my flea market booth, I thought it wise to take a small respite and only focus on a couple of things at a time instead of my usual million. I got out quite a bit and spent time with friends and lover, but at the end of the weekend, I…

It's Not The Hatfield and The McCoys...But It's Pretty Close

You know, I love mug shots where the perps have big grins on their faces. Specifically, the cat ate the canary kind of look. This week’s headlines managed to present one that couldn’t be missed, and dare I say, I think there are even twinkles in the eyes of these men. In the…

The Safety Of The Grave

America has an addiction to guns. So much so, we have the largest gun lobby in the world- the NRA -with members serving in our government. This heavily skews gun rights advocacy and regulation, often stunting bipartisan ties during critical legislation opportunities. How did our constitutional right to be armed if our government needs us, or…

Celebrate Your Kids This Father's Day

It’s Father’s Day, and to all my readers out there fortunate enough to be a dad, enjoy your day of recognition. Savor your specially made breakfast, awkwardly drawn markered portraits on construction paper, and totally needed extra set of screw drivers or packs of batteries. It’s a day of days for you during…

Graham, E.W. Jackson Claim Charleston Shooting ‘War On Christianity’

June 17th, after about an hour of service, Dylan Storm Roof slaughtered nine unsuspecting church members at Emanual A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina. There were not any obvious signs of his intentions, nor any reason to suspect him of ill will. The 21 year-old simply decided to kill members of this church for what now appears to be racially motivated reasons. Seeing how he was just…

It's Either "One Nation Under God" Or Bite My Ass And Leave

Humanity can be so obstinate when it finds a cause to support. I deal with this stubborn natured characteristic all the time whenever I discuss politics, religion, or economics with the locals in my current home town. In particular, my next door neighbor Chuck epitomizes the title of this article in the very literal sense. Yes, this man has said to me…

Answers In Genesis Creation Museum Legal Discrimination Practices In Hiring

Earlier this week, I received one of my usual spammy job listings emails. You know, the head hunter types that have job potentials to check out since my “skill set matches what the employer is looking for.” Naturally, I never look at such emails because I am completely satisfied working for the postal…

I Want To Fuck Putin.

Yeah, it’s unabashedly true. I’d take a roll in the hay with the infamous leader of the Communist world. The thought occurred to me during a rather bawdy discussion amongst friends about conservative types of people we’d consider sleeping with. And I gave it a very serious thought. Why the hell not think about it? Nothing wrong with that. And does it really…

The Religious Usurping Of Your Humanity

Nelson Mandela once said,”To deny people their rights is to challenge their very humanity.” Granted, he was referring to the hard to imagine reality of South Africa’s apartheid crisis, but his message can easily be projected onto many cultural crises in the world today.

I have always been keenly aware…

There's A Time And A Place To Be A Hero

It seems my workplace has a never-ending fount of social no-no’s and religiously related eye rolling. This is something I kind of value about my job in a small Southern federal office in the Bible Belt. That attitude kind of bit me in the ass the other morning, and it took me a few days to process this because I…

Godwinks or Hoodwinked?

Have you heard about Godwinks yet?



They are new in the “feel good” style media line up lately. I was introduced to these once a month motivational segments while at work the other morning when one of our clerks went on her break, tuning in to the ever popular wine drinking duo of Kathy Lee and Hoda on the Today show. This…

Spiritual Eugenics Really Are A Thing

My eldest son and I were making the daily commute to school this past week, and we ended up on the discussion of extending human life to hundreds of years. He’d overheard a news article about slowing down the aging process, which got him thinking. Naturally, I’m somewhat against extending human…
