Chrislam, Conservadox and Other Oxymorons

posted by Prayables

Look at it this way: there’s a great big hodge-podge of religious beliefs, bumping up against one another, each catching the religious residue of its neighbor. Chrislam, Conservadox, and Cashews are just some of the oxymorons that make up this […]

Asserting Himself

A husband was advised by his psychiatrist to assert himself. “You don’t have to let your wife henpeck you. Go home and show her you’re the boss.” The man was on fire with enthusiasm and couldn’t wait to try the […]

A Civil Tongue

posted by Prayables

My earliest memory from school is this: “It’s a free country.” Later on, I recall: “Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion.” What I didn’t know then was the underlying truth – We’re mostly soul, wrapped in flesh and blood. Please […]

Wait No More
