Missing From The Picture

The argument was lengthy; It was fervid; it was strong; Both participants were certain That the other one was wrong: Was the object of contention A potential, or a child? Just a maybe, or a baby With a list of rights compiled? Is it murder of an innocent When choosing to abort? The argument was …

Rants And Comments

The Coloradan has a fun opinion piece up, complaining that atheism is becoming the US national religion. It’s a scattershot argument, at once claiming a near 80% Christian majority and demanding protection from persecution, since we are a republic, not a democracy. A fun read. Anyway, I commented there, but I can’t tell whether it …

Poland High Court: Atheists Are Human, Too

“It isn’t important,” you’ve argued before, “Cos God doesn’t really exist” But look! When the hospital gave you last rites, Though you weren’t on the Catholic list, (And when you recovered, which no one expected, And found your desires were ignored), You sued, and you claimed “immaterial damages” Thus making fun of our Lord.

Natural Disasters And Acts Of God

God isn’t in the weather—in the wind and in the rain— It’s a natural disaster, never God, which caused such pain Oh, but God can be detected (so they patiently explain) In the actions of the people on the ground God would never cause a hurricane; the gospels make it clear Though the “acts of …

Forgot One–Trick Or Treat!

Stumbled on another old Halloween verse I missed in my earlier post…. Jesus came back from the dead tonight (He said he had done it before) He took to the streets in the Bible Belt With the children in masks, door to door. With pirates, and goblins, and heroes, and ghosts Came the Savior, the …

Should there be a national day When all of us will join and pray; A day to send our thoughts to heaven— And should this day be 9/11? To show God’s love is everlasting Join with us in prayer and fasting Our nation’s ills won’t go away Through just our work—we all must pray! It’s …
