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.
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.

You must have seen the story at some point during the last week. A three-year-old boy visiting the Cincinnati Zoo with his parents fell into the habitat of a silverback gorilla named Harambe, and zoo officials had to shoot the gorilla before he could hurt or kill the boy. Of […]
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 […]
Ah, spring. We didn’t really have a winter in Texas this year thanks to global warming — the poor sods on the East Coast apparently took all the snow that would’ve come our way — but even if you’re unable to get a clue from rising temperatures as usual, you can still tell the […]

Before I proceed with my review of the premiere of FOX’s newest show “Lucifer“, I have to make you aware of something that I hope you will all find quite shocking: Every now and then, I oops. Case in point, I wrote this in Part 1 of this series: So […]
