What do Naomi Campbell and Pat Robertson have in common? Both lust for Liberian butcher Charles Taylor’s diamonds. Robertson’s relationship with Taylor was the subject of my first post, from Aug. 2005. “We’re undermining a Christian, Baptist president to bring in Muslim rebels to take over the country,” he said on his 700 Club show […]Read more "The Malcontent turns 5"
That’s Tenn. GOP gubernatorial candidate Rob Ramsey’s defense for opposing a new Islamic Center in Murfreesboro, where such a facility already exists. As is the case with the so-called Ground Zero mosque, there’s been no evidence presented linking the Murfreesboro mosque to radical Islam. Now, I’m all about freedom of religion. I obey the first […]Read more "Sharia law in Tennessee?"
If you were raised Baptist in the South, you likely spent about 260 hours a year in church. For most Protestants, noon Sunday is the longest time before more church, but not Baptists. By the time you got home from lunch at Po’ Folks or Morrison’s it was time to go back to church — Sunday […]Read more "Why lapsed Southern Baptists of a certain age appreciate ‘Lost in Space’"
Witness hip hop evangelism with a Disney twist in this Christian alternative to “High School Musical.” Jesus must be so embarrassed.

I’m frankly surprised we haven’t seen more fringe right figures play the Antichrist card. Who knew “SNL”-alum Victoria Jackson ran with that crowd? Apparently her dumb blonde routine was no shtick: I don’t want a political label, but Obama bears traits that resemble the anti- Christ and I’m scared to death that un- educated people […]Read more "waiting for mary gross’ take"

I would hope he’s at least concerned about some of the support he’s attracting. One thing he can control: those sharing the dais.
