2013/04/26

By Stephen D. Foster Jr.

Religious freedom is being killed in Mississippi. It has been for a few years now. And Christian fundamentalism is the murderer.

Mississippi is ground zero for religious anti-abortion fanatics. They’ve literally nearly…

Idol Chatter

Of all the days of my 13th summer in Paskaloochee, none stands out so clearly as the day Bent Turner completely lost his mind. He had always been a little off; thus the name, Bent. What his true first name was I never bothered to ask. Bent he was to the town, the nomenclature applied with varying degrees of affection depending upon factors such as age, social status, or denominational affiliation. I say denominational rather than religious, for all in my hometown claimed kinship in the same… Continue

The Business of Churches

So I work a business to business sales job that conducts full day job shadows as a second interview. More often than not I’ll have a recent graduate along for the ride so that they can get a feel for the job and I can decide if they are a good fit for the position.…

Should Gay Marriage Be Legal

Okay let me rephrase the question so that maybe someone can understand how I hear it better:

"Should black people be allowed to marry?"

"Should people with blond hair be allowed to marry?"

"Should Christians be allowed to marry?"

This is what I'm hearing and it's not right - not right at all! It should not even be a discussion - It's silly to the even ask; yet, it seems to be one of the top discussions of all time.

Government doesn't acknowledge that it steps on many people's first amendment rights.

Below are some examples of money, or a pledge that illustrate how explicitly unconstitutional the current state of each is. Imagine the outrage if the pledge or money were adorned suddenly with new wording.



On Money:



In Allah we trust.

In Buddha we trust.

We trust that gods don't exist.





The pledge:



I pledge allegiance to the flag... one nation, without gods, indivisible...

... one nation, bless'ed be, indivisible...

... one… Continue

Church and State to a close minded Christian

I changed some things as to not imply any particular person, but as a people whom

are having trouble understanding the difference between church and state.



This is a comment I did on Justin's blog. To help some people in their that were

literally refusing to accept the separation of church and state.

they were only using christian based quotes from the presidents instead of

The Big Gay Chip on My Shoulder







I am a straight man, with a big gay chip on my shoulder.



A while back on my Twitter page (yes, I know how ridiculous it sounds), I mentioned that, if I believed in the devil, Pat Robertson might be him.



Being a fairly liberal-leaning guy with either liberal friends or Republican and Christian friends who don't believe that being one has anything to do with the other, I was surprised at how many people took offense… Continue
