2016 Presidential Hopefuls

The Mad Hatter:
the most misunderstood
Republican candidate.
I promise not to focus on the 2016 presidential race too much. There's enough faith-based insanity to satirize here in the States and abroad to focus exclusively on the wretched state of politics. In fact I had made a pledge to myself to wait until the race gets started in earnest before writing anything on the topic.

All that fell apart when I brought my son to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. We both enjoyed the movie quite a bit. However, I wasn't 100% engaged in the explosions and chaos. I kept on thinking You know, I bet Ultron could run for President as a Republican and no one would notice. Then I thought about Reverend William Stryker of the Stryker Crusade from the classic X-Men graphic novel God Loves, Man Kills. For those of you who aren't  acquainted with that story, the good reverend and his clandestine paramilitary force (Purifiers)  work towards the extermination of mutant kind. That guy could run as a Republican and at the very least win the primary in South Carolina.

I put finger to pixel (as against pen to paper) and wrote a quick cheat sheet for voters: 2016 Presidential Hopefuls over at The Random Journal. I hope you go over there and read it.

Talking To My Kids About God In Seven Pictures

I was talking to someone the other day and the topic came up on God and what we as parents tell our kids about God. And I recited my policy on the Almighty. I've told my kids the following since day one. We have had no negative consequences due to this policy.

My goal has been to tell my kids the truth in an age appropriate way.

OK, maybe in a truthful and funny age appropriate way.

Prank Calling A Gay Conversion Camp

I don't laugh a whole lot. Sure, there is chuckling here and there and possibly the occasional That's really funny thought that goes through my head, but when I'm consuming comedy I find myself deconstructing it way too much. A long time ago two of my friends were writing/drawing a comic book and asked me what I thought. I read it, put it down on the table and calmly told them it was funny. (It was supposed to be funny.) Even though I meant it, my response let the air out of their collective zeppelin (the comic had a zeppelin in it).

The video below is really funny. Check it out.

Anti-Gay Oklahoma Lawmaker Vows To Be Repeatedly Sodomized To Protest Gay Marriage

Many of you have probably read about the Oklahoma law maker who threatened to light himself on fire over an abortion ruling. Be not worried, my friends, he won't do it because he is a good Christian.

Thank God. Hallelujah.

There was some discussion over at The Random Journal, that site where I contribute to, on how to properly handle that particular bit of insanity occurring in Oklahoma. It took me some time before I came up with a piece of satire where a fictitious politician decides to protest gay marriage by getting sodomized daily. It would be marathon of butt sex that would not end until gay marriage was illegal in all fifty states.

However, I suspect the fictitious law maker would find another cause and continue this particular method of protest, all the while singing God's praises.

You may notice that I didn't mention that he was a Republican. At this point it should be assumed.

I hope you head over to The Journal and read my piece, Anti-gay Oklahoma lawmaker vows to be repeatedly sodomized to protest gay marriage. I had a lot of fun writing it and it's one of my better pieces.

My Personal Experience With Divorce And Mediation

I sent out an email letter last month to subscribers and in it I disclosed that I recently got divorced and how we chose to go through the mediation process. A reader sent me an email asking what mediation is and whether or not it's "face to face combat". This video is my answer to his questions.

The email letter I shoot out to subscribers is where I talk about being an atheist dad and touch on some interesting godless stories that you may have missed. Oh, and there's a fair amount of humor, too.

I hope you enjoy the video!
