A Response to J.D. Hall

A few months ago, a debate intensified between two groups of well-respected Christian leaders, in which members of the International Coalition of Abolitionist Societies and members of Apologia Church, Polemics Report, Cross Encounters Ministries, Bible-Thumping Wingnut, and Crown Rights Media began disputing over an event known as the Church Repent Project.

No, Russia Is Not Preparing for War. She Simply Can’t

gods-must-crazy-10

Enough already. Quit repeating this war-mongering neocon nonsense. Quit fretting about it. The rising panic about Putin’s supposed preparation for war is just another scare, no different from Ebola, the flu epidemic, or the imaginary terrorist training camps on American territory.

Yes, seriously, Jimmy Carter. Yes, the same person whom conservatives just until yesterday brought up as the worst president […]

Political Opportunism Doesn’t Fight Tyranny, It Perpetuates It

Gadsden_flag-show-me-papers

I’m sorry I need to burst this bubble, but the Republican governors’ “rebellion” against Obama’s refugee resettlement plan is not an application of the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate. Yes, I know, the temptation to ascribe such noble motives to them, and to see the seeds of righteous resistance against tyranny in our country growing steadily is great. The Doctrine […]
