Pastor Steven L Anderson Pisseth Against the Wall

I didn’t make it past minute 1:10, when this pastor tries to make the point about the number “5”. He’s solid and founded until he references Genesis 5:5 and Acts 5, which are not in original text, but in fact devices added much later to help modern readers find which verse to use to increase guilt next.

Infertility Goblins

Closer to December, Tina and I will embark on our first month of fertility treatments and subsequent Inter Uterine Insemination.

Our hope is to document it and host the documentary here at Le Café in a segment I would like to call “Fertility, with a side of Holy Shit.”

I’m not settled on the name.

Maybe you could help me out with a new name. I plan on working up some graphics, and detailing the entire process on camera.

All that said and what that all means is, we’ve decided to have sex for the first time — ever! — and we want you here, to experience it with us. If you can’t be here, we’re doing a 30-camera shoot of our first time for all the world to see. Live.

Dirrrty, nasty, virgin sex.

Right on camera. Blood, sweet and tears.

Not really. We really are going to be doing IUI this coming month. It’ll be our Christmas present to the world. Well, mainly my mom and dad.

You may be wondering where dinner blogging has been lately too. We’ve been having repeat meals, and I haven’t been taking pictures of them. But surely the next time I cook something new, look for some shots. I’m aiming for a big dinner this weekend.

My cousin Jonathan is in town this weekend to see the Pixies at the Aragon. He and his wife may want a Chicago native cooked meal. But if not, we’ll go out. Continue reading “Infertility Goblins”

The “Morality” of Child Sacrifice Encourages War

In a pretty recent post, I talked about Lot’s contribution to godly morality. God considered Lot righteous enough to keep the story in the bible (a.k.a. the ultimate book of morality). Maybe there’s a reason for including Lot’s story of offering his daughter’s as sacrifices to deity. Perhaps we missed what was didactic about such a story.

No, I don’t think so. Lot’s story ended when his ignorant, horny daughters drugged him and raped him to get themselves pregnant because they couldn’t find any local fellows to marry.

Lot died.

His righteous legacy lives on.

Wow! What an awesome code for moral conduct. Top notch. I’ve tried bringing this up to many Christians. They do the typical wave of the hand through the air. “No, no, no, this isn’t part of the moral code,” they say.

This is one of those passages that gets Tina’s blood boiling so badly she wonders how anyone could grow up in the environment that I grew up in. I’m not sure what gets her angry most, the passage about Eve as helper (See Creation Museum; search for word “helper”) or Lot’s disrespect for women, including his own daughters.

Me? I can’t figure out how women could agree to become “christian”. The “christian” tradition is so one-sidedly testosterone heavy and patriarchal, why would a woman want to subscribe to an unnaturally oppressive male culture?

It’s truly something to explore. Maybe it’s that …

Gotta/Wanna/Coulda Whole “Lot” of Love

Let’s read the bible!

At the end of Genesis 11, “Moses” introduces the world to Abram (eventually Abraham), his wife Sarai (eventually Sarah) and Lot (eventually paternal douchebag of the millennium). As you know, Abraham is the father of the three main world religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. This happens right after the Tower of Babel where God confused languages (evolution is so screwed!)

I’ve studied Genesis in great detail. So if you want to go read the Abraham story, I’ll wait here for you to finish. Go ahead. It’s chapters 11 through 24 or 25.

The “War” on Yeshua Mass


The American Family Association is calling on consumers to boycott Gap Inc. and its brands, which include Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic, this holiday season. The Christian organization alleges that the retailer’s ads downplay the word “Christmas.”

The boycott, according to the AFA, is in response to Gap’s holiday advertising and in-store promotions over the years, which have stayed away from recognizing any specific religion. For instance, last year’s campaign was themed “Merry Gap-mas,” substituting the chain’s name for Christ’s. The AFA—which had boycotted other retailers like Sears and Target in the past for their holiday ads—is singling out Gap this year. The AFA is planning to release a “Naughty and Nice” list of retailers who address Christmas and those who don’t.Read more

God and the Scientists: Evolution (1 of 2)

For over fifteen hundred years, Christians saw the bible as the primary source of knowledge, but in the seventeenth Century the beginnings of a scientific revolution began to challenge the Christian view of the world.

Eminent scientist Colin Blakemore interviews esteemed scholars and Churchmen in order to understand how Science has transformed Christianity over the last four centuries.
