  • But Should I Post This On Facebook – Religion and Politics

    Matthew 15 10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. 12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this […]

  • Taxes the Short and Long—Religion and Politics

    Tax season is another time when age and experience rears its sometimes-ugly head. Though I’m not a person who fears doing my yearly income taxes, I am a person who knows it will not be the type of event it was when I was a much younger, generally not nearly as well paid individual as […]

  • No, It’s Not the Same – Autism

    There are a couple of traits that the majority of humanity—at least among the folks I have known in the course of time—seem to have somewhat in common. They are, a desire to find similarities, and a tendency towards “one-upmanship.” These two tendencies, frankly, make it that much harder to explain Autism to folks who […]

  • More On Immigration Policy – Religion and Politics

That being said, I believe the majority of folks in the U.S. are aware of […]

    You would think the title of this article would be sufficient to “snap a bunch of folks out of” a behavior I have noticed appears to be becoming more and more prevalent over the course of time. That behavior is to treat things as if they were people. I can understand when people ascribe the […]

  • Yes, Chances Are Good They Already Know – Religion And Politics

    Anybody having read any of the blog posts I have taken the time to craft is probably aware that I typically take somewhere in the neighborhood of a thousand words for each article. I do this for a number of reasons. The first reason is, I know that the average person is not “up for” […]

  • Familiarity Doesn’t Breed Contempt – Religion and Politics

    I’ve come to the conclusion long titles are harder for people to handle than short ones. As a result, I did my best to keep this one relatively short. If I had made it as long as I would have liked, it would have been “Familiarity Does NOT Breed Contempt; and Absence Does NOT make […]

  • How Long Has That Been Happening? – Religion and Politics

    An unfortunate reality surrounding someone being placed in a position of authority, is that he or she is best served by not making “radical changes” on short notice. I’m not saying folks never do this, nor am I saying that when they do so, the results are invariably bad. I’m simply saying that, for the […]
