By popular demand….another rant….
I wonder if any one has considered the possible consequences the rapture will have on the Chick-fil-A company. Just saying.
I got a fresh taste of how much some people loathe Obama when I heard someone say it would be better if Hillary was in the White House.
The wounds I’ve had inflicted on me by Christians have far exceeded in number and severity the wounds I’ve received from those who make no pretense of being believers.
There’s something oddly reassuring about watching the Kentucky Derby every year though I don’t gamble and I never watch another horse race throughout the year.
I really hate that commercial for McDonald’s where the tall self-absorbed, self-centered guy with scraggly hair refuses to speak to anyone until he get his precious coffee. Grow up, dude.
I also don’t understand how watching some guy paint pictures on his chest and belly is likely to sell medicine. Very odd.
The view of church varies dramatically depending on what side of the pulpit you find yourself.
The typical Christian school is clueless when it comes to communicating or even recognizing a Biblical Worldview.
I have more respect for an unshakable liberal like the late Ted Kennedy or even Barak Obama than I do for so-called “moderates” like Bart Stupak and Charlie Crist.
I’m frequently shocked by what some people are willing to share on Facebook. Amused and entertained — but still shocked.
I used to think that TV was a vast wasteland of insipidly shallow and childish drivel. Today, I know it.
The people who design drinking glasses have apparently never unloaded a dishwasher, otherwise they wouldn’t make the little indentation on the bottom of all their glasses that collects water and splashes everywhere when you are unloading the dishwasher and trying to put them on the shelf.
The Kindle may be the greatest invention thus far this century.
Why is it that I can earn more interest on my money in my sock drawer than I can at the bank and yet, they want to charge me 22% on my credit card bill?
Why are media companies willing to censor any negative portrayal of Mohammed, but always defend any so-called “artist” who wants to trash an image, the name of or the reputation of Jesus Christ?
I think the next time I’m surprised or disgusted about something, I’m going to exclaim or mutter, “Oh Mohammed!” or “Buddha, Mao and Joseph Smith!”.
Fajitas make me fahappy.
I like living in a part of the country that has four distinct seasons, but my very favorite season of all is Football Season.
It’s like the TV networks have basically given up on producing anything worth watching. YouTube shows far more creativity.
You can judge me if you like, but I enjoy Facebook.
The KFC Double Down “sandwich” is a delectable and naughty treat. And it will probably kill you faster than cigarettes.
Somebody should probably warn seminary students that many deacons and finance committee members can and will cuss you, fire you and lie about you if given the chance.
The hardest part of teaching seminary students is helping them get through their disappointment with church leadership and politics when they enter the ministry when they really thought the real battles were going to be waged by unbelievers.
I’ve always wondered why some entrepreneur hasn’t made a perfume that smells like pumpkin pie or apple dumplings or even gravy — cause I know those smells always get a guy’s attention. At least it always gets mine.
You read it here first, I believe that Hillary Clinton will be our next President. I’ll explain why in a future post.
If you don’t think most evangelicals are gullible and lacking in discernment, bring up “Glenn Beck” sometime and watch them get as flushed as a teenaged girl on her first date. Or simply say something negative about him — but caution, wear a flack jacket before attempting.
If you don’t follow Jon Acuff on Twitter — you’re missing about a dozen belly laughs a day. (Here’s the Blog)
By and large, most Americans consider one thing and one thing only when they are voting. The economy. Of course, I think that makes most of us political whores.
Frankly, I think for every church we start in this country, we should probably close one. Or at least quit calling them a “church”.
I’ve found that as a rule, if I go to a church that only has a one-word church name (besides the word “church”), I’m the oldest person in the room. And for the record, I don’t think it is any more “Biblical” or a sign of “relevancy” to have a church where everyone is younger than forty than it is unbiblical or “irrelevant” to have a church where every one is older than fifty.
There is not one single Republican that is acting like they might be interested in running for President in 2012 that makes me want to get excited about their prospects. Not one.
I think that Lady GaGa and Prince Poppycock should wear signs that say that they represent the low point of American pop culture. Are we even remotely capable of producing a Shakespeare or Milton or Bunyan in this generation? I think not.
I’m very grateful for Dollar Menus at fast food restaurants. May they always be.
One of these days, I hope someone rediscovers the word “Loyalty” and brushes it off and puts it back in our lexicon.
It’s my personal opinion that Rocheport shoes are the best shoes made. Does that make me old? Even if I have Rocheport flipflops?
My nest is 1/2 empty and I’m not loving that.
OK….enough for today. Maybe it won’t be nearly a year before I do this again. Feel free to add your rants or perspectives in the comment section.
