Occupy Wall Street: The Truth will set you free, but few news channels are telling it

posted by remims

Looking at the Occupy Wall Street crowd and its clones in cities nationwide, I understand the frustration over the economy in general – and sigh, deeply, at the movement’s lack of a unified message. But as diverse as the folks […]

Halloween: Devil in the details of the holiday, or the distraction of misplaced angst?

posted by remims

When you are raised in a fundamentalist, Pentecostal preacher’s home, there’s usually just no debate about it: Halloween is when the Devil runs amok, and real Christians have nothing to do with it. Well, at least that’s how it started […]

Zombies? No big deal. I knew a couple who attended my Dad’s church . . .

Have you heard? Vampires are passe. Zombies? “They’re baaack.” (Shameless stolen phrase from the movie “Poltergeist,” there, with apologies for mixing horror literary references). Zombies, not unlike Harold Camping’s frequently uttered and revised predictions of The End, seem to be […]

A Congress Carol? Dickens' Scrooge listened, Washington is not.

Was that lunch, or Our Lady of Cheddar and Christ in a chip?
Whenever I hear someone exclaim, “Christ on a crutch!” I usually point out there are at least a couple reasons the expression fails in the imagery department. First, scripture tells us he never had a broken bone. Second, if he had broken or even sprained a leg, don't you think he might've hea
