Duggar and Hovind Homecoming

My blog post is going to be short and sweet today. I just heard that the criminal tax-evader Kent Hovind was released from prison this week. Then I caught wind that Jim Duggar (of 19 Kids and Counting) was with him. My only thought is, “How fitting.” Kent Hovind’s beliefs are so nuts that I don’t really know where to begin.

Don’t believe me? These guys are friendly with guys like Mike Huckabee, who is quite influential in political circles.

Today, I have some additional thoughts about this topic.

When the controversial Indiana legislation, a.k.a. RFRA was passed and the owners of Memories Pizza publicly commented that they would prefer not to serve gay people in their restaurant. […]

How I’ve Learned to Forgive

It’s a word I dislike, because so many people presume it means that everything should be forgotten about. But this isn’t true. That can’t happen. The human mind cannot forget great pain. It is always there, once inflicted, etched in our subconscious. If it is possible, repairing relationships when there has been a deep damage […]
