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 […]

posted by remims

Mitt Romney ‘isn’t-a-Christian’? Betcha Jesus loves him, Rev. Jeffress

posted by remims

A Southern Baptist pastor is catching a lot of heat for daring to say what so many fundamentalist Christians will say among themselves, if not on a nationally-televised platform: that they believe Mormonism to be a “non-Christian cult.” Specifically, the Rev. […]

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

posted by remims

Christians behaving badly (and Jesus wept, again)

posted by remims

This is another one of those Jesus Wept blogs. (A.K.A. Christians behaving badly). And you can thank my editor, Robert Kerby, for including in my Beliefnet brief  “popular culture,” and the subset (I would suggest sub-basement) of Reality Television. I […]

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 ...
