Blessed Are the Peacemakers

posted by Jason Boyett

I haven’t posted anything yet about Saturday’s shooting in Arizona. Not because I don’t have anything to say about it, but because I’m not sure that my opinion matters. And as someone who struggles with certainty, I’m not in any […]

Does God Care Who Wins our Elections?

posted by Jason Boyett

As recently as last Tuesday, out-of-nowhere Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell was saying that she was running for Senate because God told her to, and that her polling numbers would go up in response to people’s prayers. Yesterday, she lost […]

Religion and Politics and Youthful Disaffection

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday, the LA Times published a thought-provoking commentary about disaffection with church among young people and the reasons behind it. Twenty years ago, only 7% of Americans claimed no religious affiliation, and that wasn’t a surprising number. We were a […]

Obama on Faith and Doubt

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m sure you heard about President Obama’s commencement address at Notre Dame over the weekend. It was not without some controversy among pro-life groups at the Catholic university. He addressed the abortion issue by calling for a reduction in abortions, […]

The First 100 Days: An Idea

posted by Jason Boyett

So yesterday was the big “First 100 Days” milestone in President Obama’s administration. I’ve always found this to be a curious way to mark the passage of time. One hundred is a good, round number — when you’re doing math […]

QOD: What Podcasts Do You Download?

posted by Jason Boyett

Two of the questions I’ve been asked multiple times are: 1) why don’t you have a podcast? and 2) what podcasts do you listen to? To answer #1: I’ve got enough going on already. Don’t have time to plan, record, […]

An Abundance of Caution

posted by Jason Boyett

Last night, new U.S. President Barack Obama retook the oath of office after he and Chief Justice Roberts botched it at the inauguration. Their reason for doing so? According to a written statement from White House Counsel Greg Craig, it […]

Tweeting the Inauguration

posted by Jason Boyett

I didn’t plan to, but I ended up live-tweeting the inauguration. Thought I’d post the feed here because I didn’t really plan anything else for today, blog-wise. Anything I have to say would be no different from most other people […]

Man Hair and the Scandal Theory

posted by Jason Boyett

I have long had a theory that, again, has proven to be accurate due to recent events. Please consider the following photos and see if you can guess the connection: Rod Blagojevich (left): Current Illinois governor who was just arrested […]

Well Done, Patrick Moberg

posted by Jason Boyett

Click here for the hi-res version. [H/T: 22 Words] Kinda puts this week in perspective, huh? Moberg, an illustrator, Vimeo employee and famous blogger due to his illustrated online search for the girl of his dreams, is thinking about making […]

President-Elect Obama

posted by Jason Boyett

Whether or not you like Obama’s politics, or whether or not you think he’s a socialist or a godless liberal, or whether or not you suspect he may be a deep-cover Muslim renegade out to destroy the very fabric of […]

Go Vote

posted by Jason Boyett

After an endless campaign season, it’s finally time to vote. Go do it, then come back here and report on your experience. + Did you vote early or wait until today? + Where did you vote? + Heavy turnout or […]

I Know Joe the Plumber. For Real.

posted by Jason Boyett

So the big star of the debate Wednesday night was Joe Wurzelbacher, an undecided plumber whom John McCain mentioned more than 20 times at Hofstra. The national media has been buzzing about this guy since the debate ended. I actually […]

Obama and Abortion

posted by Jason Boyett

First, I’ll apologize up front. I know not everyone wants to read about politics on this blog. You’d rather read funny stuff and gentle religious sarcasm and blatant self-promotion about my books and writing. I understand that, so this will […]

14 Reasons I Like Obama (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s Part 2 of my 14 reasons why I’m voting for Obama in November. You can scroll down to read Reasons 1-7. #8: Obama recognizes that the key to reducing abortions isn’t to repeal Roe v. Wade, but to work […]

14 Reasons I Like Obama (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

This will likely be a controversial post — at least among my closest friends and family, most of whom are Republicans and McCain supporters — but it’s time for me to come entirely out of the closet as a supporter […]

Liars

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s a fun but discouraging site: PolitiFact.com, which analyzes the statements and speeches and ads run by the presidential candidates to figure out who’s stretching the truth the most. The current breakdown is as follows: ———— McCain Campaign Barely True […]

Pit Bulls with Lipstick

posted by Jason Boyett

You don’t read my blog for political commentary — of that I’m pretty certain — but this has been a pretty political week, so I’m gonna cover Sarah Palin for a second. My opinion of her has whiplashed at least […]

Don Miller at the DNC

posted by Jason Boyett

Just to follow-up on last week’s post, here’s the video and transcript of Don Miller’s prayer at the Democratic National Convention. When Cameron Strang graciously backed out from giving the prayer, Don stepped in. Because, in his words, “Somebody calls […]

Relevant and the DNC

posted by Jason Boyett

If you didn’t know, RELEVANT founder Cameron Strang got invited to give the opening invocation from the main stage at the Democratic National Convention. Yep, the national TV broadcast. The DNC is looking to reach out to faith-minded young voters, […]

New Obama Rumors

posted by Jason Boyett

I don’t usually just copy and paste, but these are too good to pass up. Here, courtesy of Christopher Beam at Slate, are 13 rumors the Obama campaign should start disseminating to email forwarders everywhere: There are many things people […]

We Have a Winner!

posted by Jason Boyett

The votes are in on the Fake Band Names contest! I’d announce the victor but I’m waiting for a committee to decide whether or not we accept full or half-votes from the residents of Michigan and Florida. Not really. But […]

Proofreaders for President

posted by Jason Boyett

Just a quick note: If you’re running for president, and if you’re going to spend millions of dollars to advertise yourself, and if you’re trying to restore competency to a presidency and party that has come to be known as […]

Bye-Bye Mugabe

posted by Jason Boyett

Good news out of Zimbabwe. It looks like President Robert Mugabe is at least conceding that he didn’t win the recent election. I won’t pretend to know much about African politics — in fact, I know very little — but […]

Obama’s Speech

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to mention politics as little as possible on this blog, because it’s so divisive and quickly leads to defensiveness and name-calling and the spread of hurtful misinformation (and that’s just on my part!), but I have to bring […]

Faith and the President

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s what’s funny: this political season, the three remaining candidates for the presidency all have pretty solid Christian credentials — and are probably more outspokenly Christian than most candidates have ever been — but quite a few watchdogs of the […]
