God's Comic

Today I received e-mail from my son’s high school involving a fundraiser for the marching band. Normally I wouldn’t admit this but my son was in the marching band last year and I am still on their mailing list. When my son was born I put a baseball glove on his hand and fantasized about…

During this Thanksgiving Holiday I believe it is important to take a moment to thank God for the little things that often get ignored or neglected in our hectic lives. Lots of football will be watched over Thanksgiving for example, which reminds us to take time and say a little prayer thanking God for commercials.…

As we near Thanksgiving which once was a Holiday that gave thanks to God for His provisions I leave you with a little story that makes perfect sense if you find God un-intellectual. Once upon a time there was nothing. No earth or sky or universe or even molecules. Nothing was all there was. Over…

In Oregon they have a new curriculum mandatory for all students from 11-18 yrs old called “practicality in life skills”. This is a new class and somewhat unorthodox but as one teacher put it “ We as educators can do the most good for our students by helping them to be self sufficient without judgment…

Tonight is Halloween. For those of you unfamiliar with the holiday it’s a beautiful time of year where small children are encouraged to pretend to be someone else and come to the homes of strangers and ask for candy. Ironically the other 364 days of the year we spend telling children NOT to take candy…

As a Christian man I can’t in good conscience vote for Barack Obama. His values and fruit have proven him to be antagonistic to traditional Christian worldview. But he may become the next president and I would be expected by God to pray for him and all leaders to make moral decisions when leading the…

Ok here’s the deal. Nobody and I mean nobody is interested in your personal phone calls. It’s like people feel compelled to use their cell phone in public simply because it’s in their pocket! For example, when you get on the plane, you don’t have to call and tell the person that you “just boarded…

I am a sexist. But I’m a sexist in the best sense of the word. If sexist meant I believed men were inherently better than women it would be a negative concept. But that is not what I mean. To me sexist is acknowledging and living by what used to be the age-old common sense…

I have a GPS system in my car that not only knows exactly how to get anywhere I need to go, it also knows where I am at any given time even when I don’t have the slightest idea. Her soothing British voice is always there to guide me when I’m lost and it gives…

My favorite jeans have holes in them. Of course everyone’s favorite jeans do. They are the most comfortable and the most stylish. Top name brand jeans actually make the holes for you. They scrape them in various places to create the illusion of natural wear and random ripping. What is most interesting to me is…

Brad Stine
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!"
