The patriarchy is everywhere, and it makes me angry. Even the very name of our species is an example of the toxic cisheteronormativity of creeping maleness. Human. It’s built off of the word ‘man’, yet another example of toxic masculinity manspreading its way into our language and oppressing queer and nonbinary bodies, not to mention … Continue reading “Human” is oppressive. Word. Justice. Now. (SATIRE)
Just last week, the Attorney General made the decision to implement the death penalty for the first time since 2003, against 5 extremely awful terrible people. This has brought the debate over the propriety of the death penalty back to life. (There’s a joke there somewhere.) Christians of good conscience can come down on either … Continue reading DoJ Just Resumed the Death Penalty: That’s Good.

That is annoying, as human rights are a very specific thing, not just a slogan to stick onto a politician’s latest totalitarian attempt to seize more power.

It is, in general, a simple rule: Christians are to submit to the government and … Continue reading How Should a Christian Relate To the Government?
Intersectionality has become all the rage in a sizeable (and loud) portion of the American church in the last few years, and its effects are being felt in the ‘woke church’ movement. Recently, the Southern Baptist Convention issues a (in my opinion tepid) resolution addressing it that, while saying it’s beneath scripture it is a … Continue reading Toxic Wokeness: A Biblical Critique of Intersectionality
In the age of fashionable Trump-hatred, nothing is sacred. This much is obvious from the anti-Trump opinion piece published at Christian Post, a site that is usually pretty balanced. That’s the risk of an opinion section; don't shoot the messenger. The author, one John L. McCullough, absolutely mutilates the story of Jesus birth to characterize … Continue reading Jesus Wasn’t An Illegal Alien. Stop It.
