Baxter’s legacy: Dog, it’s God, spelled backwards

posted by remims

I love dogs. I believe in the unconditional love and loyalty these furry companions give as a gift from God. Our relationship with these animals in unique and special. It goes beyond the rational and into the transcendent, even the […]

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

posted by remims

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 […]

‘Christian burial’ or ‘Christian cremation’? Make mine well-done

posted by remims

One of these days, I will shuffle off this mortal coil, vacate the earthly tent (as Paul put it), slip beyond the veil, or any of the myriad other metaphors for death. As a preacher’s kid, I had to attend […]

Life in prison for pedophile ‘prophet’ who raped in Jesus’ name

posted by remims

It took a Texas jury less than 30 minutes Tuesday to decide what penalty to give to self-proclaimed polygamist prophet, and convicted pedophile rapist, Warren Jeffs. They gave him life, plus 20 years, for raping two “child brides,” ages 12 […]

Of ‘sugar-coated Satan sandwiches’ and other evil foods

posted by remims

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, was so incensed by the recently reached federal debt compromise that he declared, “This deal is a sugar-coated Satan sandwich. If you lift the bun, you will not like what you see.” In the often crude, […]

Mitt Romney ‘obviously not a Christian’? Is it ‘obvious’ who is, and why?

posted by remims

So, that bastion of truth, fairness and letting us “decide,” Rupert Murdock’s Fox News – or more precisely, “Fox & Friends”  host Ainsley Earhardt — recently declared that Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is “obviously not . . . a […]

Amy Winehouse, amid rush to judgment, remember a sad little girl

posted by remims

I never heard but a snippet, here and there, of an Amy Winehouse song. But I’d see her on the news, being led to some courtroom, her latest stint in rehab or staggering at a concert, forgetting lyrics and being […]

What the hell happened to hell?

posted by remims

There seems to be a helluva a lot of talk about hell lately. The debate about exactly what “hell” is has raged for millennia. The place — or concept of such a place of torment for unrepentant sinners — varies […]

God be with you, 'til we meet again
So, after a year of posting Preacher's Kid, it's time to say farewell. I have so appreciated the opportunity to share my occasionally tortured faith, to relive the sweet and bitter and in between insights and experiences of life and the aftermath of being the son of a preacher man. I have trie

Christ not born on Dec. 25? 'Merry Christmas,' anyway
Some insist it's the “War on Christmas.” In some places of business, in some schools, in some government offices, saying “Merry Christmas” may bring you a scowl or even a reprimand.

A Congress Carol? Dickens' Scrooge listened, Washington is not.
It's odd what convergences of thought an occur when you see a well-done, live theater production of “A Christmas Carol,” followed by seeing the politicians on CNN,

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
