Why Matthew’s Resurrection Account is Garbage

There’s a meme called “When You See It”. You’re given a photo that looks pretty mundane, but once you’ve spotted a particular detail, the picture shifts from mundane to hilarious (or maybe horrifying). You can never go back to seeing the picture the way you first did. In the same way, my feeling is that once you’ve seen the gaping flaws in the Gospel of Matthew’s resurrection account, you’ll never go back to thinking it’s anything but garbage.

Lawrence v. God

In 2003, more than a decade before it legalized gay marriage, the Supreme Court declared all anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional. The United States could no longer punish a same-sex couple for engaging in homosexual acts. And that, combined with Roe v. Wade, is when America ceased to be a Christian nation.

Chris Pratt and Profaning the Sacred

Why do we keep the sacred separate from the profane? So we don’t dirty up the clean things.

“Not One Jot or Thimble Shall Pass”

I saw something disturbing in the news today. No, nothing Donald Trump tweeted. Rather, the Parker Brothers game “Monopoly” is retiring one of its signature game pieces: The thimble. It was ousted by popular vote, so this was hardly an authoritarian or fascist move by Parker Brothers – sorry, I […]

What the Worst Things Teach Us

We all want to believe in karma — i.e., “What goes around comes around”.  Every religion that exists contains some expression of our desire that good be rewarded and evil be punished.  Eastern religions generally subscribe to reincarnation, while Western religions look forward to an eventual resurrection, but both paradigms are built […]

Wake-up Call

OCD is a pain.  I mean it’s a serious pain sometimes, and I’ve only got a light case in comparison with some people.  I’m not germ-conscious like Howie Mandel or…well, really, he’s the only celebrity I know with a bad case of it.  Think “Jack Nicholson in As Good As […]
