To truly move forward in your Christian discipline it is crucial to constantly weigh your experiences with perspective. What I mean by that is everyone has at one time, or eventually will, experience situations in their life that will be challenging. Ironically it’s overcoming those challenges with a balanced perspective that is part of what…

At the risk of sounding like a heretic, when I talk to people in church I like to use words that one might actually use in conversation on a regular basis outside of church with actual humans. Is it too much to ask when I enter a church building I won’t be bombarded by terms…

I am shocked to say that slavery is still alive and well in America. The culprits, exactly who you would least suspect, the “alleged” animal rights activists. Animal rights activists always entertain me with their lack of consistency. I am not a big animal lover but I also believe they are not to be abused…

Remember when good moral character was at least contrived and manufactured by our celebrities via their P.R. people? If you were an alcoholic for example you had the courtesy to unleash your uncontrollable rage at home where it only affected your kids, but your fans were left to believe in your screen image. That is…

I am writing this week’s column while sitting in a window seat of a CRJ 200 shuttle, leaving for Iowa for a Promise Keepers event then back to Albuquerque for a feature film I am in and then to Nashville. The CRJ by the way was designed for shorter flights that save the airlines money…

Americans love to celebrate stuff. Heck that’s why we have holidays every month of the year; we need an excuse to celebrate. The celebration is the experience by the way, rarely are we actually celebrating what the holiday is for. You don’t believe me? We have a holiday called Arbor Day that apparently is a…

Well in the wake of a spring filled with terrible tornado destruction, I wanted to take a moment to consider this age-old question of whose responsible? I always find destructive weather interesting in the way people perceive it. Often some Christians decide it is Gods wrath on a nation, or town or trailer park depending…

Liberals cuss…a lot! Cussing to a liberal doesn’t represent crassness or crudeness. How could it? To be crass and crude means one is kowtowing to a puritanical backward way of seeing culture. Liberals don’t believe in “The” Bible, they believe in “A” bible though. The Constitution represents the progressive’s omnipotent scriptures. Don’t believe me? Progressive…

One of the easiest phrases to roll off the tongue of an American is when speaking of our “rights”. I have the “right” to freedom of speech based on the 1st amendment. I have the “right” to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I have the “right” to believe in whatever God I…

All I wanted to do was throw some trash away. I had a paper cup from coffee at the airport and decided when I was done with it the prudent thing to do was throw it away. Why Not? I’ve thrown stuff away all my life and it never was complicated before. Here’s how it…

about

Brad Stine

"Brad Stine is on a mission – a mission to free us all from the chains of political
correctness and prevent our eventual ‘wussification.' From his Nashville
stronghold, Stine is mounting his crusade against these hypocrisies, all of which
are explored in his highly anticipated 4th album/DVD, aptly titled
‘WUSSIFICATION!'

"You know what offends me?... Offended people," says Stine. A staunch
supporter of first amendment rights and foe of political correctness, Stine asserts
that rights should be universally applied. "In a country with guaranteed rights to
freedom of religion, its citizens are constantly trying to make faith in public
spheres illegal, I am offended by that contradiction and want to talk about it as a
comic." The strength of his conviction about our freedoms can be found in many
places on WUSSIFICATION – from "Merry Christmas Too!" (the right to celebrate
religion) to "At Least We're Not France!" (the responsibility to take action as a
country) to "Spank" (the ability to discipline our children the way we see fit).

What would cause the wussification of Brad Stine? "I hope that nothing ever
wussifies me to deny my own personal beliefs," he says. "Brainwashed wussies
have been taught that standing up for yourself and defending your personal point
of view makes you a close-minded hate monger." Stine stops short of defending
his point of view as the ONLY one, adding "...one must also be respectful of
dissenting belief while supporting their own." He is, after all, an inclusive figure
who trains his comedy to attack ideas, not the people who embrace them.
Stine's faith forces him to acknowledge the respect and dignity of all… even the
wussies with whom he disagrees!

Stine models his approach to comedy after legendary practitioners that he has
known and loved over the years. Despite George Carlin's disdain for theistic
beliefs, he has been a big influence on Stine. "I always enjoyed Carlin for turning
the tables on culture. He is an excellent writer that has endured for decades."
More current comedic touchstones are Brian Reagan, Paula Poundstone, Jim
Gaffigan and Monty Python, among others.

Fear not, true believers – with his brand new album, Brad Stine is here to save
the world from WUSSIFICATION – one politically-correct, offended person at a
time!"
