What Jesus Didn’t SayPosted: March 11, 2012 Filed under: Fave raves | Tags: faith, heroes, integrity Leave a comment
Musings of a "not so good" Christian
To look at the Evangelical church, (of which I have been a part of close to 30 years), you would think that Jesus had a lot to say about modern day social and political issues. So lets put some words in Jesus’ mouth according to the “gospel” of American evangelicalism.
“My Father in Heaven wants you to be rich, and healed, and the head and not the tail.”
“Truly, truly I say to you that a woman who uses birth control is worse than a trollope, she is a slut. Make sure your taxes don’t give her free birth control.”
“if one is poor, or needy or is a single parent, do not encourage them, by giving them anything. They made their bed, thus they need to layeth in it.”
“If thou be my follower, thou must protest and picket abortion clinics. Telleth them they are damned to hell if they do not repent.”

My dad passed away late last night.Posted: January 30, 2012 Filed under: Absent friends and loved ones | Tags: faith, family, heroes 11 Comments
I first mentioned him here.
He slipped away gently at about 11:30 pm. Mercifully.
I have never known a better man than my dad. If you ever met him, you would agree.
Godspeed, Dad, and I’ll see you on the other side.
