Whose Circus Is It Anyway?

Now that Thanksgiving is over, this is a good time to get a mindset on how to approach what is shaping up to be an interesting couple of months with Christmas coming in the big middle of it all. “Don’t complain, don’t explain” are still pretty good words to live by, and I wrote about the difficulty of doing just […]

Too Soon?

After telling an insensitive and usually tasteless joke about some recent event, the stand-up comedian asks “Too soon?” when the audience groans.  Anticipating a similar reaction on social media, someone posts “Too soon?” at the top of a meme.  Well, if you have to ask… Not that long ago, one of the safe topics for small talk, along with the […]

Woke, Water & Wesley.

Awaken ye to the dry lands of unity. Woke. There is much banter about the use of the term “woke” in these present times. While the liberals use it proudly as a badge of honor, fine Christian conservatives mock the term as an insult. The Lord has called on me to do some further research into this phenomenon. In its current usage, being […]

Who’s Up, Who’s Down

Well, they’re still counting votes across the country, particularly in Arizona and Nevada, so it is unclear at this writing which party will have control in both houses of Congress. Control might be the wrong word to describe having a majority of seats, as the last two Republican speakers of the House could attest. Having followed Daddy’s admonishment that those who […]

Elections, Ejections & Erections.

The results are in……..sort of. Elections.  There’s got to be a morning after, as Sister McGovern so beautifully sang.  However, much like the film from which it came, life seems upside down.  As a Texas Babatist, I am observing my fellow faith followers rejoicing in the victories of their political saints.  Yet many here are rending their clothing and gnashing their […]

Brace Yourself

As Mrs. Doubtfire once said, “Winston’s idea of foreplay was, ‘Effie, brace yourself.’”  For those who feel like the political foreplay of the last few weeks leading up to next week’s midterm elections has left them with little to do but brace themselves, you are not alone.  Once braced, you know what happens next. But some Democrats aren’t the only […]

Marjorie, Muertos & Manna.

Scary, Dead, Money. Marjorie.  As if the world around us isn’t scary enough, earlier this week was the one night of the year where adults encourage their children to disguise themselves and go door to door asking for handouts.  Clearly a Democrat celebration.  I find the entire affair rather Pagan and un-Christian.  However, in the Spirit (so to speak) of the […]

Watching Leslie Twirl

The news of Leslie Jordan’s death, so sudden and such a gut punch, came on a Monday when I had no plans.  That absence allowed me the opportunity to go down a YouTube rabbit hole of clips, many of him on Will and Grace.  While I understand the cultural significance of that show, I wasn’t particularly a fan of either […]

The Roll Up Yonder Has Been Called.

Brothers and Sisters, there is no other news story this week greater than the passing of my Brother-in-Christ, Leslie Jordan.  I am dedicating this column solely to him. We met on a high seas ministry to the Mediterranean many years ago aboard a ship of sodomites and lesbyterians.  We were both called to this ministry to fervently anoint those gathered.  […]

Betting On The Come

“Life’s a game, but who can play it all alone?”  The opening lyric of “I Know That You Know” is so true on so many levels. Many of us were brought up playing all sorts of games.  We graduated from Candy Land to Monopoly as part of increasing ability to formulate and execute strategy.  Old Maid would lose its luster […]
