I get asked this question a lot. Some people seem to think that Christians shouldn’t have anything to do with politics, or they should stick to one side of politics and therefore stay out of any debates or protests or discussions — the ‘dirty’ side of politics.

But we as…


Dear brother/sister,

I write this now because the church we used to belong to together is no longer. Scripture tells us to bring our grievances to the church leadership, but we can’t do that, so I’m throwing this one out into the wind. But also in part because what you…


On January 1st, 2014 I pushed the virtual “go live” button on Christianity Without The Insanity. I had gotten the idea — stolen, swiped, copied, call it what you will — from so many other online politically left-leaning social media brands were… well, they didn’t seem to PRODUCE anything. I…


Conservative opinion journalists and bloggers have been really busy over the last few days.

An interesting discussion has sprung up several times on my Facebook feed and pages. Who is a Christian? What determines who is “in” and who is “out”?

Usually, this comes up in a discussion about abortion or same-sex marriage or another hot button topic, usually in the form of “if…

I get that question a lot. Especially when I share a political position like being pro-choice or being in support of same-sex equality. “But you still believe x-y-z? Just like the Westboro Baptist guys? …
