God's Comic

I don’t think people take Hell very seriously anymore. We used too. As a matter of fact it was one of the reasons why people were nicer years ago because they didn’t want to go to hell. That was a curse word; literally to tell someone to go to Hell was bad. Why not? You…

In an age where politeness seems to be a missing piece in America, isn’t it amazing how polite inanimate objects can be? There are signs that say “Thank You for not smoking”. First off when a sign says thank you for not smoking the question that needs to be answered is.. How did it know?…

As I got out of the shower this morning I had the pleasure of taking a glance at myself in the mirror. Nothing wakes you up in the morning like a hot cup of coffee and seeing yourself nude in the mirror. The good news is it’s the only time in your life you will…

After many years as a “Christian comedian” I have often been asked if I thought God had a sense of humor? Well here are a couple examples where I would vote for the affirmative. In all my many years on earth I can’t begin to count the times I have bitten my tongue. Everyone has…

There are many terms used in the Christian world that sound good but often times don’t actually mean what they say. I would like to explore some of these but since these columns are limited to around 500 words let me start with these two. The first one is a phrase every Christian has used…

My daughter sat me down the other day and was in tears. “Daddy I don’t want to go to heaven” What, I said, but why? Here I was ready to hear her impassioned plea that she wasn’t worthy to stand before a righteous God. Or perhaps she saw the plight of so many who would…

Twas the first week of the New Year and all through the house there were ruined new toys and a returnable blouse. The kids back to school with a long heavy sigh and momma and me without guilt said goodbye. The take down of nativities and tinsel and trees and the sweeping and dusting while…

Around this time of year we always comment that another year has come and gone. But has it really? I mean we have arbitrarily created the calendar year based on the earth’s rotation around the sun or something to that effect. But just because it does rotate consistently doesn’t mean we had to choose that…

I came across a classic Christmas song the other day and after examining the words I have come to realize how easily humans accept ideas at face value without scrutinizing them for philosophical and/or cultural flaws. The song I’m referring to of course is “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. Here are the lyrics with my copious…

As of this writing the GoFish song Christmas with a Capital C is one of the most requested songs on Christian radio. This song sampled my Christmas rant from “Put a Helmet On!” and has well over 18 MILLION hits on YouTube. The song and my routine is simply a response to the politically correct…

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!"
