Out In Droves – Arguing Same-Sex Marriage


House Bill H.R.1054 was up for a vote in the Civil Law Committee on Tuesday. On that day the committee took testimony from any and all citizens who wanted to share their views on the bill. Many presented their own views and some introduced themselves as representatives for a group. I don’t often watch political …

Not gonna tip. Not gonna do it.


Steven Olsen from WWJTD posted this photo on Facebook from the FB group for IfYouCantAffordToTip.com:  The image shows writing scrawled in pen on a piece of paper that says: Crystal, Your service was Great. The Reason for No tip – I am starting my own Redistribution Plan Like Obama – Started 11/6/12 – I no Longer …

Marketing Mute Mommies

Trippy Tent

This is a post by guest blogger Ellen Bulger. I’ve never been a big Disney fan. Growing up, my exposure was minimal. The cartoons weren’t broadcast on TV and my parents took me to maybe two movies in my entire childhood. The only one I remember was Mary Poppins. And when I was in junior …

Trucking Missionary Style

I took this photo as part of my Photo Per Day (Peeper Dee) project for Le Cafe Witteveen. I gotta be honest – I cackled with glee before groaning and cursing. This was just too fabulous of an example of a Missionaries Gone Wild spotting. We thought about calling the number and chatting with the …

Crazy Faith, Adoption and Zombies

DSC_0024 (1024x683)

Here are a couple of odd signs that have caught my attention over the past couple of days: Seen on the back of a car in a parking lot. Short version: No arguments here. Deeper version: I think this might be a reference to Susan William Smith’s Crazy Faith: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives. According to …

Why She Left Her Church

A very good friend of mine just left her Catholic church in large part because of its support for the marriage amendment that will be on Minnesota’s ballot this November. The church put a “Vote Yes” sign in their front lawn, and that was the final straw for her. Not sure I can stomach the …

Praying for Obama


Seen over at Le Cafe Witteveen So nice, those religious people praying for Obama, right? Let’s find out what Psalms 109:8 is, shall we? *flips through the internet* …Let’s see…the general consensus seems to be along the lines of: Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Nice. I see what you …

Bible or College?

sDSC_0776 (1024x683)

On the drive into work today I saw an [sarcasm] AWESOME [/sarcasm] bumper sticker. Ready? A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education. *sigh* This is why we can’t have nice things. Aside from this being a ridiculous premise – (Which is going to help you in the real world: …

Glasses to Blur Out the Wimminz

Blurry Photo

Or alternatively, Fuzzy Glasses, Fuzzy Logic. It’s August and as far as I know there’s only one April Fool’s Day every year. Right? RIGHT? I went to Google to see if this “Associated Press” article that I saw on Twitter was real (Ohhhh… you say you’re <air quotes>Associated Press</air quotes> Sure ya are. Got ID?), …

CONvergence 2012: The Role of Religion in Science Fiction and Fantasy

This panel featured five authors with different religious backgrounds: Agnostic, an Episcopal minister in training (with an interest in Paganism – not a practicing interest, but a fascination), an atheist with knowledge about Eastern religions, a Church of England priest, and an atheist Unitarian Universalist ex-Catholic. Some of the themes discussed: Does much of science …
