Each church body is just looking for a sin which they don’t feel guilty of so they can be superior, as if God is a bear and we must simply outrun our comrades to escape being consumed in the flames of Hell that inhabit the mouth of God. Continue reading

Leaving the Nest
It’s been a while, I know. I’d love to be able to tell you it’s because I’m just too damn busy loving on my little son, but that’s not entirely true. My son is happy and healthy and looking beautiful and loving on him takes up the majority of my time and effort, that true. … Continue reading
What I’m for: Religiosity as experience, not an idol.
In the past, I have been religious. At this point in my life, I am no longer religious and have not been for quite some time. Many of you are aware of the things that the church has put me through. It’s hard to be religious and enthusiastic about a church that only tears you … Continue reading
For the love of God, no cake for you!
This whole cake baking thing is going to be as slogan-ed as ‘Joe the Plumber’. I fear we’ll never hear the end of it. “Why should I have to bake a cake if I don’t want to?!” “It’s against my religion to bake you a cake!” If you have been reading my thoughts on homosexuality … Continue reading
Blue/ Black vs White/Gold and God’s Word
“I’ve figured it out!” she exclaimed. “You know you guys were talking about how God can be all-knowing, all-powerful, and good? Well, I figured it out!” I snapped right in to judgmental mode. How special you must be to think you’ve got it all figured out. So after she told me how she made sense … Continue reading
Tract Passing and Soul Winning
“That’s for you,” she says, averting her eyes and avoiding eye contact. The lady thanks her and takes the tract a bit embarrassed. I was reading an article in the New York Times about how to raise moral children. In a study they did, a teacher demonstrated how to play a game and played selfishly … Continue reading
You break, you buy; and not with lives. My thoughts on Ebola, ISIS, and Police Brutality.
You know what’s funny? I never once thought…’I should shoot her. That would stop this from happening.’ And that doesn’t make me a hero! I promise you, that is the very least I could do. Continue reading
Saving My Son from Church
“All I see are stepford-like lives Needles and knives, beautiful lies Bringing out the green in your eyes Perfect disguise for envy and pride Face me Make me listen to the truth even if it breaks me You can judge me, love me If you’re hating me, do it honestly” ~Kelly Clarkson One way or … Continue reading
Marriage is a Religious Institution, eh?
It occurred to me commenting on another blog that people may not even know that a liberal Christianity exists. One page said that a celebrity left Christianity because she had a crush on a bi-sexual man and the church didn’t approve. I posted that she should have tried a different denomination if that was the … Continue reading
The Either\Or in Sexuality
Sometimes I think we get this stumbling block idea backwards. I was raised to believe that we needed to avoid all evil and appearance of evil in order not to be a stumbling block to weaker Christians or to those who are not yet Christian. But I’m not sure that is the best way to … Continue reading
