Okay-I Am Confused
All I ever hear from the anti-gay marriage side is how they are okay with civil unions. They just don’t want gays to be allowed to be married.

CMTDS: The Holy Burn Edition, Part 2
The same year as I am a Stranger In This Place, the Violets released the worship album Faith and Devotions of a Satellite Heart. Musically, it is in much the same vein as IAaSITP.

What Would Suge Knight Do?
Christians really don’t like Bill Maher…I am starting to suspect that it’s just cause folks don’t like being called out on their crap.

No really. I am loving it as a reading device. Currently, I am reading a book called Bring Her Down. I confess, it is tough reading so far, simply because, while the author Gina Dalfonzo agrees there were other factors, my personal biases make it hard to not stop every … Continue Reading iPad 2, Best. Book. Ever.
An Easy Mess
I finally got around to watching Easy A. I had high hopes of it being a clever teen comedy in the 10 Things I Hate About You Vein. It starred Emma Stone, who seems to be able to brighten up the lamest of films. It was a fresh take on … Continue Reading An Easy Mess
