Parents upset over no religious symbols policy. Why?

This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series Why the government can't save you

I read this more and more – parents are upset over some policy, this time federal, restricting religious symbols / words / books in schools. But why? I truly don’t think we should be so upset over this.

Lost Son Parable – Parenting 501

I can’t help but wonder – if this father is so wonderful, how come neither of his sons knew it? Further – how could the father be so blind as to not know that neither son really knew him? And if he was aware that his sons didn’t know him – how come he didn’t do anything about it? In other words – why is it just accepted that the father was good and the problem was with the sons?

The problem of God “Calling”

This entry is part 13 of 21 in the series The problem of ...

Why God is a curvy, black woman in ‘The Shack’

This entry is part 4 of 7 in the series God versus religion - why?

Should God choose to present Himself to me as one of the many judgmental Christians (which lets me our of looking in the mirror to have God represent Himself to me as me – got it?)
