Prudence, the new cowardice- my brief for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo slaughter, some brave news outlets chose to print the satirical paper’s disparaging cartoons of the prophet Mohammed.  Many others chickened out using the “let’s be prudent” defense. They have, unfortunately, confused prudence for cowardice in this case and I have found myself increasingly frustrated by those mediaites who refuse to speak the truth about…

HearTheBigot

My friend Todd Herman was filling in for Ben Shapiro today on 770 KTTH.  He asked me to be his guest.  We talked about changing the tone on the gay marriage discussion.  For those who have been following askthebigot for a while, there’s not much new here.  It was a heavy dose of love-your-gay-neighbor, and…

Duck Dynasty Season 3

A Duck by Any Other Name…

Once upon a time there was this ubergay character on the most popular reality TV show of all time named Bill Hobertson. This guy was the quintessential gay man. Such a gay man he was almost a caricature of the Gay Man.  On every single episode, Bill and his post-nuclear family were unapologetic about their…

A new Pew Research report reveals what every supporter of real, heterosexual marriage already knows full well- that all aspects of mainstream media are skewed to inflate the actual reality of public opinion in support for gay marriage.  If you are short on time you could stop after reading the title, “Far More Coverage Of…

“Student Kicked Out For Being Lesbian”

LIE.  Truth? This student was kicked out after violating the code of ethics as stated in the student handbook. A code to which she and all students pledge to follow, and publicly proclaimed so with their signature, before attending their first class.  Danielle Powell was expelled in 2011 after she began a relationship with another…

If gay marriage, what then?

Public opinion has changed rapidly regarding gay marriage as evidenced in this Pew Research study.   The continued glorification and normalization of gay relationships and parenting within media is likely to continue, and with our culture’s propensity to be shaped by those compelling (though not wholly realistic) images and stories, I think it is probable…

The great *stigma* divide.

“You sent me the link to your blog, and I knew I was never going to open it,” one of my closest friends who falls on the other side of this issue told me. It was reported that a family member said something to the effect of: “I just began reading a few words of…

Why do I blog?

Over Christmas break, my dad and I were talking about gun control (but we could have been talking about any hot-button issue).  Though we come from opposing positions, we agreed that the media and special interest groups skew much of the discussion on the subject.  It crystalized some thoughts I’ve had on blogging. Social media…

ISO bigot Christians

Someone discovered my blog today using the search terms “Questions to ask bigot Christians.” I don’t think I’ve personally met a Christian bigot.  I am honored to commune with some of the most caring, intellectual, and self-sacrificing Christ-followers.  Many, perhaps a majority, of us have a parent, uncle, brother, sister, cousin, co-worker or dear friend…
