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 […]

Self-proclaimed presidential favorites of God not faring well

posted by remims

Herman Cain likens himself to a modern-day Moses, a reluctant yet obedient servant who, in this century, answered the call to run for the Republican presidential nomination. Michele Bachmann said God told her to run. Ricky Perry, too, has laid […]

The End? Another misstep for Harold Camping’s Apocalypse Boogie

posted by remims

First, I’m sorry for blogging again about Harold Camping’s prophetic losing streak. I will try, very hard, not to do so again. For a while. But really, when it comes to self-proclaimed prophets, religious broadcaster Harold Camping may just be […]

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 […]

Harold Camping: Oops, he did it again . . . no Rapture, just same old troubled world

posted by remims

The world ended today. Again. Or not. You may recall that Harold Camping, the self-proclaimed Doomsday prophet who misfired back on May 21 with his “guaranteed” Second Coming of Christ prediction, had re-set the End of Days for October 21. […]

Of prophets and fools: The difference between the real, the self-professed

posted by remims

Sometimes, you need a crazy, loud or even obnoxious prophet to shake people up, make them rethink the slippery moral slope they are on and make a commitment to turn around and do what’s right. John the Baptist, who identified […]

Robertson’s Alzheimer’s outrage: Should ‘700 Club’ change to ‘$#*! Pat Says’?

posted by remims

There was a time, many years ago now, when I used to watch Pat Robertson’s “700 Club” and think it was a pretty good program. It had inspiring stories of faith, outreach and emergency aid programs. It was an example […]

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 […]

False prophets: It’s always about power, greed or sex

posted by remims

Look around. We seem to be awash in prophets these days. Some blast their “prophetic” gifts from the proverbial “Brother Love’s Travelin’ Salvation Show” type crusades in arenas or megachurches, making sure they capture it all for television followers ready […]

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 ...
