no thinking

Political correctness - a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Christmas Objections

Though I claim no allegiance to any religion or belief system, I have no objections to Christmas as a secular or religious holiday and I begrudge no one their beliefs. Indeed, I am very much in favor of the sentiments and ideals that the holiday represents. Still there aspects of the holiday which I find […]

Black Friday & Christmas Spirit

The crass commercialization of Christmas is certainly a downer but really puts a damper on my Christmas Spirit is Black Friday which is the antithesis of Christmas. It would be a gross understatement to say that I’m not particularly religious. The truth is that I am not religious at all considering that I do not […]

Penultimate Day 2015

Another year is about to pass into history or, more likely, oblivion and on this penultimate day of the year, I take a retrospective look back over the events and non-events of the past year. Overall, it seemed to be a year on non-accomplishment — employment, projects, yoga, genealogy, et cetera. Maybe I can change […]

Death and Marriage

Death

Why Can’t Americans Choose to Die on Their Own Terms? That’s a question that’s been troubling me for many years. It’s been my experience and my observation that the wishes of the dead and the dying are usually given lip service at best or they are completely ignored. The funeral industry blatantly rips off grieving […]

Lent again?

It occurred to this morning that Ash Wednesday is just a couple of days away. I don’t actually observe Lent but is the one Christian observance that I appreciate and relate to although I find the common observance of Lent to be fraught with undue frivolity, triviality, and hypocrisy. ┬áStill I appreciate the idea behind […]

Did Jesus fake his death and resurrection?

This is an idea, Just one possible scenario, that I’ve toyed with for a number of years. I’m sure that most Christians would find it blasphemous or heretical, if not downright offensive since it goes against one of the most fundamental beliefs of Christianity, his Resurrection and ascent into Heaven.

At an early age (the age […]

Easter Musings

I’ve given up on trying to reconcile the incongruity of eating ham on a day marked for commemorating or celebrating the resurrection of a Jewish man from the dead. Like all other Christian holidays, Easter has assimilated so many ancient observances and rites into its collective and perverted them that it’s nearly impossible to separate […]

The Gospel of Palin

Here’s yet another reason why John McCain lost my vote after Sarah Palin was selected as his running mate. I recently read that in an interview with Fox and Friends she claimed that Jesus celebrated Easter during his time on Earth.

So Jesus celebrated his own death and resurrection? Or perhaps he took part in pagan […]

Thank you for your concern...

Dear Facebook Friend,

Someday you will see that I posted all of my “annoying” and “religious” Facebook posts because I care about you. Your soul matters to God and to me. I would rather you hate me for telling you the truth, than have me lie to you or keep silent to gain your acceptance.

Someone was […]

Merry Christmas

Though Christmas is a “Christian” holiday, I celebrate it as a secular holiday with spiritual overtones. I regard Jesus of Nazareth as a great spiritual teacher whose teachings and message have largely been lost to those who claim to be his followers. It is his message of peace, compassion and good will that I try […]
