Sunday’s Sermons: Why I’m Not Afraid to Go to the Movies, and Neither Should You

So, roughly a week ago there was this grade-A asshole in Colorado who shot up a movie theater and killed 12 people all in some misguided delusion that he was the Joker instead of, you know, a loser. Now naturally this stirred up a media frenzy, and that story is about all we heard about… Read More »

Sunday Sermons: The Unbelievable Racism Being Shown Towards Attorney General Eric Holder

This is going to be a very, very short sermon (compared to all the others) because 1. Sometimes, we are driven to make things more complicated than they really are to excuse or explain away racism…which really only gives more wiggle room to the people you’re arguing against. 2. I rarely get surprised by the… Read More »

Sunday’s Sermons: The Moral Imperative Behind Earth Day

Reaction to the Title of This Piece: “Geez, every fucking week it’s moral this, moral that…is there any issue that can’t be stretched into a sermon?” Well, not many, but this is a little different. Second reaction: “Isn’t it always a little different?” True, but what if I told you that something The Bible mentions… Read More »

Sunday’s Sermons: How Taxes Can Tell Us Our Values, by Worshipping Different “Government Gods”

Last year around this time, the country felt more or less stuck in the same rut that it is today. Democrats are trying to take on multiple agendas at once (getting gay marriage into more states, making sure Obama’s not a one-term president, struggling to not have unions wiped out, not letting the country crumble… Read More »

The Internet Comments on the Trayvon Martin Case Show We’re Not Post-Racial (But Maybe Post-Caring)

By now everyone and their brother has probably read something or the other about the Trayvon Martin case online, and everyone and their brother has probably also commented on the case. It’s not surprising that people would have strong opinions about a case like this, but it does surprise me to read exactly what they’re… Read More »

Sunday Sermons: Alabama MUST Get a Lottery

Right off the bat, I’ll address the question I would have after reading that title and that’s “Is this an April Fool’s Joke?” And the answer is no, I’m being completely serious when I say that Alabama has no forms of a lottery or really any fully-authorized gambling except for a couple of Indian casinos that… Read More »

Inside Alabama’s Political Slide From Democrat-Controlled to Far-Red State

On Tuesday, the Republican Presidential primary will receive the ultimate test in irrelevance…Alabama and Mississippi vote. Arguably, the two most conservative and poverty-stricken states in the country are what are known as “outlier” states. Meaning they’re so far in one direction they’re not a great indication of what the entire country is thinking. Using the… Read More »

Mormon Mitt vs. Snake-Handler Santorum, Two Very Different Religious Options For Social Conservatives

I know, I know, this presidential race is played out. There are literally hundreds of other big stories going on that nobody is talking about since the media is obsessed with taking the easy way out by covering the race exclusively. I’ve been trying hard to diversify stories lately but Super Tuesday is coming up… Read More »

“We Won’t Be Ignored Electorate,” With Santorum, Social Conservatives Live Out Fatal Attraction

Just when Alabamians thought they would be sitting on the sidelines in this year’s presidential race, watching a race play out between what they view as “President Black Panther” and “Mormon-bot Romney,” an idea started to formulate among restless social conservatives. They started thinking “Hey, how come we don’t like Romney but he’s going to… Read More »

What Exactly Is a Racist? The Definition: Recently Fired Pundit/White Supremacist Pat Buchanan

Two things that I hope that loaded title conveyed: 1. That Pat Buchanan has been fired from MSNBC, the left leaning alternative to Faux News that apparently couldn’t find a reason to keep an old racist around anymore. 2. That this article will explore what a racist is, and that I think it is, you… Read More »
